One of the defining images of Indias last home series against England is from the last over of the second day of the Mumbai Test: Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen have forged a solid reply to what had initially seemed a match-winning 327 from India on a pitch that looked likely to turn square. England are 176 for 2, India are looking for a moment of inspiration to leave them feeling good about the next days play. They turn to Harbhajan Singh, who is looking to revive his Test career. He comes in for the last over, draws Cooks edge off a short ball, but what have we got here? Virender Sehwag is upright at slip. The ball hits his boot, his hands are up around his waist. The moment is gone. Cook and Pietersen come back the next day to trample Indias challenge.Four years on, India have still been dropping catches at slip but in the dying moments of sessions they have been switched on.When a new batting pair arrests a collapse in the last half hour, or tired bowlers prise out a set batsman, their team usually grows a leg upon resumption. A lot of Test cricket is about physical and mental endurance, about concentrating when it is easy for the mind to wander, and, this time around, India have met these requirements for longer than their opponents in taking a 2-0 lead.Two prime examples of India outlasting England over a days play were seen on days one and two of the Mohali Test. On day one England had recovered from 92 for 4 at lunch, losing just two wickets over the next three and a half hours. Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes looked at ease going into the last half hour. If England could end the day six down, they would have done enough after winning the toss on a pitch likely to assist spin. India delayed taking the new ball, but rookie offspinner Jayant Yadav produced the inspiration they needed in the 84th over. First, a flat delivery took the outside edge as it ran across Bairstow from around the wicket. The next one drifted and dipped before turning in to trap him lbw. The new ball was duly asked for. Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami, who had bowled 14 and 18 overs until then, bounded in for a final burst. Umesh kept beating Woakes outside edge, but also kept adjusting his line to move it closer to off stump until he pegged back the stump itself. A probable, respectable 280 for 6 turned into 268 for 8. Of course, Shami struck with his first ball next morning. England finished with 283.By the last hour on the second day, through one lucky break - Cheteshwar Pujaras dismissal to a long hop - some sensational fielding, and disciplined bowling to Virat Kohli, England had willed themselves back into the contest. India had gone from 148 for 2 to 204 for 6; four more wickets for 50-odd runs could have proved disastrous for them, given they had to bat last on a dry surface. R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, though, saw off the threat in that last hour. Jadeja, shepherded along by Ashwin, played his most restrained Test innings. England would have probably given an arm for two more wickets on the day, but they didnt have enough left in them to bowl disconcertingly to the lower order - as Indias quicks would do to theirs in the second innings.Before that, in the Visakhapatnam Test, Jadeja broke through Cooks stubborn 188-ball resistance with something special off what turned out to be the last ball of the fourth day. In Englands second innings in Mohali, Ashwin came back for the last over to dismiss Ben Stokes with an inspired review. That wicket was crucial as England went on to write off the deficit and ask India to chase over 100.Over the first three Tests of the series, not counting a teams natural progression to being bowled out or the wickets lost when pushing for a declaration, India have taken 13 wickets in the last half-hour of sessions to Englands five. In a series in which England have lost 53 wickets to Indias 48, those last half-hours have proved to be the difference.For long India have had the reputation of being a side whose concentration and fitness wavers as sessions and days wear on. Here they have shown the skill, the alertness and the resilience to keep coming back when it can be easy to start thinking of lunch, tea or that massage at the end of the day. Tracy Mcgrady Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October.

SAN MARTIN, Calif. -- Just when it seemed as if the U.S. Womens Open would come down to the final hole of the three-hole playoff, a rules violation changed everything and helped deliver Brittany Lang her first major title.Lang was the beneficiary of a delayed, two-stroke penalty called on Anna Nordqvist on Sunday, as she won the title she was so close to seizing when she was runner-up 11 years ago as an amateur.You never want to win with a penalty or something like that happen, especially to Anna, who is a friend of mine and a great player and a classy girl, Lang said. But its unfortunate. Its part of the game and it happened that way.Lang made par on all three holes of the aggregate playoff and Nordqvist was given a two-stroke penalty for touching the sand with her club in a fairway bunker on the second playoff hole, helping deliver Lang the title.The players were not told of the penalty until they were in the middle of playing the final hole, after officials reviewed replays in the latest controversy at a USGA event after the delayed penalty called in the final round on eventual mens U.S. Open winner Dustin Johnson last month.Seemed kind of unreal that it happened, but it does, Nordqvist said. It wasnt any reason to question it. But Im certainly disappointed of the timing of it.Lang then sealed the win with a short par putt on the final playoff hole, while Nordqvist made bogey to lose by three shots.Lang shot a 1-under 71 to finish with a 6-under 282 for the tournament at CordeValle for her second win in 287 tournaments on the LPGA Tour. She survived a bogey on the 17th hole that led to the playoff before recovering in the playoff for a breakthrough win at age 30.I think this is absolutely huge, a huge momentum builder to say you won the U.S. Open, Lang said. I think this is a huge, a huge step in the right direction for my career.Both players made pars on the first hole of the playoff, which was played on the final three holes of the course. Then things got interesting on the next hole after Nordqvist hit her tee shot into a fairway bunker.While preparing to hit the shot, Nordqvists club barely touched the sand. She did not realize it and both players made par on the hole, heading to the final playoff hole seemingly tied.But after seeing a replay, broadcaster Fox asked the USGA if there was a violation.dddddddddddd That led USGA official John Bodenhamer to go to the television truck to see a replay, which showed the violation that was not evident on the live broadcast or to the official watching the hole in person.Bodenhamer then said he decided to immediately tell the players, but the news got to Nordqvist after she hit her third shot at 18 and before Lang did. Nordqvist said she would have been more aggressive going for the pin if she knew she needed birdie. Lang changed clubs for a safer approach shot, knowing a par would win the tournament.It certainly changed her game plan, Nordqvist said. But, you know, hopefully we can all learn from it and hopefully we can all get better.Lang hit her shot onto the green and then two-putted for the win, getting hearty congratulations from many of her fellow Americans on tour after she joined Michelle Wie (2014) as the only U.S. golfers to win the Open in the past six years.Lang came on the scene as an amateur back in 2005 when she finished tied for second at the U.S. Womens Open at Cherry Hills. But in more than a decade as a pro, Lang had won just one tournament, the 2012 Manulife Financial LPGA.Lang capitalized on a surprising final-round collapse by world No. 1 and 54-hole leader Lydia Ko, who made a double-bogey 7 on the ninth hole and shot 3-over 75 on the day, finishing two shots off the lead in a four-way tie for third with Amy Yang, Sung Hyun Park and 2009 winner Eun Hee Ji.Ko had a two-shot lead heading to the eighth hole and seemed on her way to becoming the youngest man or woman to win three majors. But then she bogeyed the eighth hole before her collapse on nine.Kos tee shot went left into the rough. Instead of just chipping out, Ko decided to try to clear the hazard and get back into position to make a possible birdie. But her shot from the rough landed in the hazard and she ended up with a 7 instead.I should have judged the lie a little better and maybe played a little smarter and laid up short of the hazard, she said. Then just lay up again and try and make up-and-down for par. ' ' '
