Dilshan with an enterprising late cameo with the blade (21no from 10), although Afghanistan - in the Super 10s for the first tim Antworten

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Teams on the cusp of becoming bowl eligible dont usually have to hold open tryouts on campus looking for players in the middle of the season.That is exactly what UCF coach Scott Frost did last week.Injuries to scholarship players have thinned the scout team to near desperate levels and the coach is looking for some walk-on help, although it wont arrive in time to help the Knights prepare for Saturdays American Athletic Conference clash with Houston.As the season has worn along weve had some minor injuries, said Frost, who hasnt settled on which walk-ons he will add to the roster. Were just looking for a little more depth here and there.Depth issues aside, the Knights (4-3, 2-1 in the AAC) turnaround season is going better than expected with the team two wins away from bowl eligibility after coming off a 0-12 season in 2015.I didnt honestly know going into the beginning of the year how quickly wed be able to accomplish some of our goals and make that work, said Frost, who was brought in from Oregon to replace George OLeary last December. Weve made a lot more progress than maybe I even thought to the point our record is really good for where our expectations were going at the beginning of the year.There werent a lot of expectations for a program coming off a winless season. But the Knights have turned it around with a tenacious defense and often just enough offense to squeak by as they sit in contention with Temple and USF for the AAC East division lead.UCF is coming off an impressive come-from-behind 24-16 road win over UConn on Saturday. The win followed a heart-breaking last-second homecoming 26-25 loss to Temple a week earlier.For us to get down the way we did and claw back was great to see, said Frost, whose team also suffered a double-overtime loss to Maryland on the final play earlier in the season. It showed the character of our team. And to be in an identical situation as two others where we had to stop somebody at the end of the game was good to see. This team just continues to impress me with its character.After enduring last season, the players wanted to be improved. They worked hard during the offseason to be better.Now they are enjoying seeing the results of the work they put in.Its been crazy, said junior defensive end Tony Guerad, who leads the defensive linemen with 25 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. Last year was downfall, we didnt play that good. But this year we have a chip we have a chip on our shoulder.Its a different environment so we are (happier), playing fast and physical. So its been fun this year.The Knights have certainly caught the attention of Houston coach Tom Herman.Obviously you go from zero wins to three wins in four games, thats pretty good, Herman said. Really good scheme, (Frost) has his guys playing really hard.So yeah, hes done a really, really good job in a short amount of time.A defense that ranks in top five in most major categories in the AAC has been a major reason for the progress. But there is no denying the progress of freshman quarterback McKenzie Milton, who was first inserted into the starting lineup in the third game of the season, has gotten better as the season has progressed.Milton is coming off his best game so far, throwing for 317 yards three touchdowns while completing 29 of 45 attempts while leading the comeback.I thought we took a big step forward on Saturday, Frost said. There has been improvement every week. Seeing the passing game click like that is a big part of what we need going forward.---More AP college football: Peter Forsberg Jersey . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming.

Rangana Herath (2-24) took up the mantle with the ball after Malinga, afflicted by a knee strain in recent months, missed out on selection, with Afghanistan posting 153-7 thanks largely to captain Asghar Stanikzais career-best 62 off 47 balls.Dilshan (83no from 56) then collected his 13th fifty in T20I cricket - a record he shares with Chris Gayle (West Indies), Brendon McCullum (New Zealand) and Virat Kohli (India) - and mowed three sixes as Sri Lanka eased home with seven balls to spare following the openers pull for four.Afghanistans innings hinged on Stanikzai after beefy opener Mohammad Shahzad, fresh from totals of 61, 41, and 40 in the qualification stage, holed out for eight and Mohammad Nabi, who hit 52 last time out against Zimbabwe, went lbw for three to leave the score on 51-4.Stanikzai clobbered back-to-back sixes off slow left-armer Milinda Siriwardana in the 13th over and four maximums in total, the 29-year-old sharing a stand of 61 from 31 balls with Samiullah Shenwari (31 from 14) for the fifth wicket while amassing his highest score in T20I cricket. Asghar Stanikzai hit four sixes in his career-best 62 Stanikzai perished attempting a ramp shot - becoming one of Thisara Pereras (3-33) scalps - but helped his side biff 104 runs from the final 10 overs, with Najibullah Zadran (12no from three) adding gloss at the death with a monstrous six over cover and a meaty four through the same region. Dilshan and Dinesh Chandimal (18) , though, unleashed some lavish strokes of their own - the former nailing a six over fine leg with his famed Dil-scoop - as Sri Lanka put on 41 for the first wicket before Nabi had Chandimal pouched at midwicket from his second delivery.dddddddddddd.Sri Lanka teased a wobble when Lahiru Thirimanne (six) dragged teenage spinner Rashid Khan on, wicketkeeper Shahzad ran out Perera (12) and Nabi ousted Chamara Kapugedera (10) off his own bowling by flicking Dilshans straight drive onto the non-strikers wicket.But skipper Mathews backed up his economical work with the ball (1-17) by supporting Dilshan with an enterprising late cameo with the blade (21no from 10), although Afghanistan - in the Super 10s for the first time in their history - were left to rue some sloppy ground fielding during an otherwise valiant display. Sri Lanka celebrate the wicket of Mohammad Shahzad Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews: It was a much-needed victory for us as we havent played well in the recent past. Our bowlers did well except for two big overs and we were positive from the word go with the bat. We are not looking too far ahead but if we click we can do wonders as a team. Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai: I thought we were 10 or 15 runs short with our total, although Dilshan played very well for Sri Lanka and showed a lot of responsibility. We also made mistakes with our fielding, so hopefully we can improve that in our next game.Sky pundit and England seamer James Anderson: I thought Afghanistan got a lesson in how to chase down a total from Dilshan - he showed all his experience and skill by taking on low risk shots all the way through a chanceless innings. It was great to watch.Sri Lanka and Afghanistan return to World T20 action on Sunday, with the former tackling Englands conqerors West Indies in Bangalore (1.30pm, Sky Sports 2) after Afghanistan battle South Africa in Mumbai (9am, Sky Sports 2).
