to beat them and be [seen by all as] the n Antworten

If you Google Pakistan batting collapse, you will find dozens of results. Batting lapses are a recurring feature for the team, with hardly a series going by without their batsman being rattled. They became the No. 1 Test team this year, but the ride to the top was not always smooth, featuring quite a few such slides.In another example of this, Pakistan suffered collapses in both innings against West Indies in Sharjah, making a dead rubber a compelling contest. On Wednesday they lost five wickets for 33 runs, setting West Indies a target of 153 runs in five sessions. It did not look good for Pakistan but the game taken a 180-degree turn when their bowlers five quick wickets to shake the chase. Once again, though, the match swung with Kraigg Brathwaite and Shane Dowrichs unbroken stand of 47, which left West Indies needing 39 on the final day with five wickets in hand.The day started with batsmen Azhar Ali and Sarfraz Ahmed at the crease; both were out to soft dismissals, before Mohammad Amir seemed to indulge in a bit of slapstick to be run out. It seemed like, more than West Indies tripping up Pakistan, a touch of laziness and complacency was plunging them into trouble.Head coach Mickey Arthur put their batting troubles down to fatigue. He dismissed comments on complacency, though he did admit that it felt like their job was already done coming into this Test with the scoreline 2-0. We havent been at our best in this Test match and we will continue to talk about it, he said. We didnt meet our standards but I cant fault the players. They have been here for eight weeks now after having a 10-day break after a very long UK tour. And it was almost mission accomplished for us before this Test match.I think we should have been way more patient with the bat. West Indies tactics were good, they set us up and made us make mistakes but then we gave them opportunity to do so. This got us in trouble in these conditions particularly, where we needed to score big in the first innings. We didnt do that and ultimately that put us under pressure for the rest of the Test match.He said that Pakistan were by no means out of the match, though. Maybe a bit of fatigue has crept into our performance. We really wanted to win every Test match, every game we play, and this game is not over by any stretch of the imagination. We would like to be more clinical and its a pity that we got ourselves into this situation, but we still can get ourselves out of this.The Pakistan selectors have already retained this squad, with minor changes, for the upcoming tour of New Zealand. The squad will travel straight to New Zealand from the UAE, flying out on Friday. When asked how the fatigue factor would affect them on that tour, and the series against Australia after that, Arthur said: When I talk about fatigue, its about the whole package: its about playing against same opponent, being in a one hotel all the time, playing in the same conditions, at a ground that we know well.We certainly need a refresh, we need to get into a different environment, need to think about the good cricket we have played and reassess where we want to be in the two massive series that we are going to play.Pakistan play two Tests in New Zealand starting on November 17, before three Tests and five ODIs in Australia from December 15. Mario Hezonja Jersey . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. Jamel Artis Jersey . "I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement. . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. D.J. Augustin Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Terrence Ross Jersey . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury commands tremendous attention from boxing fans, but these days for all the wrong reasons -- the drug, alcohol and mental health issues that caused him to vacate his alphabet titles last month.Former champion Wladimir Klitschko also receives enormous attention, which is no surprise given that he was world champion for nearly 10 years before losing his belts in a big upset to Fury last November.Titleholders Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua also have plenty of the spotlight, and for good reason: They are both charismatic knockout artists with big fan bases who also talk a good game.And then there is the 6-foot-4, 240-pound powerhouse Luis King Kong Ortiz, perhaps the best of all the big men but a guy who receives a fraction of the limelight of the others. He certainly appears to be the most feared fighter in the division because none of the other top big men dare mention his name.So Ortiz is willing to keep smashing his way through those who will face him as he plows his way to the glory he aspires to obtain.I want to fight the very best and I want to be the heavyweight champion of the world, Ortiz said. Im willing to fight anyone, any champion, any place, any time. Im ready for anyone: Joshua, Wilder, Klitschko. I know I can beat all of them.Ortizs signature victory came 11 months ago when he crushed former world title challenger and quality contender Bryant Jennings for a seventh-round knockout. He followed that victory with a punishing knockout of former two-time title challenger Tony Thompson in March.But difficulties getting other name opponents and issues with promoter Golden Boy led to his team buying out the promotional contract for $1.1 million. A talent such as Ortiz (25-0, 22 KOs) was unlikely to be on his own for long, and six weeks after the split from Golden Boy he signed with Matchroom Boxings Eddie Hearn, the No. 1 promoter in the United Kingdom.Hearn is not one to get involved with fighters who are not from the United Kingdom, but signing Ortiz was too enticing and he made an exception.Luis Ortiz is one of the most exciting heavyweights in the world, and I am delighted to be working with him, Hearn said upon signing him a month ago. We plan to keep him very busy and let the fans enjoy his devastating power. Luis is an avoided fighter, but we plan on giving him the profile that will make that impossible.Even Ortiz was surprised how quickly he landed a new deal.I always had faith in my manager and friend, Jay Jimenez, but I never expected this fast turnaround and Im so excited about the future, he said. God has been great to me and my family. Im ready.Hearns plan to raise Ortizs profile begins Saturday when he takes on heavy underdog Malik Scott at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo (HBO, 4 p.m. ET/PT with an evening replay at 11 p.m. ET/PT) .As long as Ortiz, who recently was stripped of an interim world title for taking the fight with Scott rather than making a mandatory defense against Alexander Ustinov, wins and comes out of the fight with a clean bill of health, Hearn has him scheduled for the undercard of his biggest stars next fight. Ortiz, who was a standout on the Cuban national team as an amateur before defecting, is scheduled to return on Dec. 10 on the undercard of Joshuas defense against Eric Molina at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.ddddddddddddIm going to be very busy over the next few months and looking forward to boxing in many countries as we continue my journey to the heavyweight world championship, Ortiz said. I am a very experienced fighter. I have had the best boxing education with more than 350 [amateur and pro] fights under my belt. I believe I have the ability to adjust to any fighter and any style. That was evident in my fights with Jennings and Thompson.I am very proud of myself. Im also very proud how I am bringing Cuba back into the minds of all boxing fans. Cuba is one of the most accomplished countries in terms of boxing. The style and speed and all the things we have, they are taught to us at a very young age. This is what makes us great boxers.Even though Ortiz, a southpaw, is 37, he believes he is in his prime.I feel I have been at my peak for many years now, he said. I have simply been late [arriving] on the U.S. heavyweight boxing scene. I have been fighting since I was in elementary school. Boxing is a very, very deep passion of mine.Now, it is a way to give my family a better future, and I tell you, no one will stand in my way of accomplishing this. In my eyes, I am the heavyweight champion of the world, and if anyone, any other champion, is willing to challenge me, to face me, I can and will prove it.Scott (38-2-1, 13 KOs), 36, of Philadelphia, has never quite lived up to his potential. He was in many mind-numbingly boring fights and got whacked out in the first round by Wilder in 2014 in a fight in which many thought Scott gave less than his best effort. But he is willing to fight Ortiz and has won two fights in a row against decent opposition in former world title challengers Alex Leapai (on Leapais turf in Australia) and Thompson.This is the fight I wanted -- I picked him, Scott said. I told my promoter, Tom Brown, one of the three -- Anthony Joshua, David Haye or Luis Ortiz. After Ortiz beat Bryant Jennings, the media started talking about his invincibility and that he was the most feared heavyweight, and I immediately wanted to fight him. Theres no such thing as unbeatable and I welcome the challenge to prove it.If Im on my game on [Saturday], Ill shut him out. Hes going to gas out early and Ill put on a boxing clinic. Ortiz is my pathway towards a world title opportunity -- this is my time to shine and slay King Kong. Because of his reputation, this fight will get a lot of international attention and Ill be looking for full credit when I beat him -- no excuses.Ortiz simply wants to get rid of Scott and move on to bigger and better fights.I do have a lot of respect for the heavyweight champions. They have accomplished a lot and have sacrificed a lot to be where they are. They do deserve recognition, Ortiz said. I just want the chance to beat them and be [seen by all as] the next true heavyweight champion.I think Fury was able to shake up the heavyweight division, and because of him, the division is now one of the most exciting divisions to watch. I just want to get the opportunity to face him, or Wilder, to prove I am a champion as well.
