You tweet in an unfiltered way. Not many athletes do that. I dont really see the point of filtering things too much. There are times when your opinion is not popular and you have to tone down a little bit. But I think the more you are yourself, the easier it is to get on with daily life.Who is the second-best cricketer at Twitter, who you follow? A lot of people tweet me saying Virender Sehwag is quite good, but a lot of his stuff I cant understand because its not in English. A lot of Indians tell me I am the second funniest behind him.Which cricketer would you would pay to watch? I will pay to watch AB de Villiers. You dont really pay to watch a lot of international cricketers if you are an international cricketer because it is a little hard to go in the stands and watch with the members of the public. It can get a little inconvenient, for obvious reasons.One match you did watch from the stands, with de Villiers playing, was the 2015 World Cup semi-final. It was a crazy experience. I actually wasnt going to go to the game. And then one of my friends who I knew through media work had a pass in a private area, so I could watch the match from a private room and not have to deal with the kerfuffle that goes on with that sort of situation. But it was a really special evening for New Zealand cricket.Holy f****** shitballs this is the best day of my life. - you wrote, sitting in the third tier immediately after Grant Elliott hit the winning shot in that semi-final. It was a pretty authentic reaction to what was happening at the time. Just like most of the rest of the nation, I certainly got swept up a little bit with the passion of the moment. It was deleted later for obvious reasons.Why? There were some naughty words in there which I did not want to repeat. I try to stay away from those kinds of things. As I said I got a little bit excited, clearly.What quiz question do you most fancy being in? A few friends of mine do public quizzes and they say this one: Who was at the other end when Brendon McCullum scored his triple-hundred? Seems to be a reasonably popular one.You hit a hundred in that Test. On the morning when McCullum walked out to bat in the 290s, he said he was feeling really nervous. But once he got to the pitch, you looked around and said, Gee, I didnt think so many people would turn up to see me score a hundred. McCullum said he started to laugh and felt a lot more clear-headed when play began. Do you remember that? It was in the morning, during the warm-ups. Brendon was pretty fatigued and was sort of struggling to get up for the occasion. It is always nice to try and break the ice in a situation like that. Now that McCullum has retired, can you tell us anything about him that was really annoying? Hed never let you pay for anything. He always managed to find a way to sneak off in the middle of a meal and slip some notes to a waiter. Youd go to pay at the end of the meal and the waiter would say its all been taken care of. A few of the lads have only just found out what a beer costs since hes retired!What about his superstition about not changing bat grips? Yes, he did not like to change his grip in the middle of an innings. During the 300, when he batted for two and a half days, every time he ripped his grip he would wrap strapping tape around it. A little bit of repair on the fly. And by the time he got to 290 on the fifth morning, his bat had probably more strapping tape than grip, so it was more difficult for him to get bat on ball.If you had to conceal something inside your bat what would you carry in it? Ah jeez! Something that will make the ball go a bit further would be quite useful, but that is obviously illegal. Maybe some sort of speaker so I can listen to some music while I am in the middle batting.Can you learn anything about a cricketer from the beard he sports? You can learn a lot. If a person has a very tidy, trimmed well-maintained beard, he probably is more conscious of how he comes across to other people. If you have guys like Kane [Williamson] who just lets it run wild, he doesnt really care what everyone else thinks of his beard. I think it can show a little bit of a window to a persons conscience.Is there anything that Williamson cant do with the bat in hand? He is always trying to explore new shots in training. If he does see a shot that he cant play, it will only take him a couple of weeks to sort.Why are guys like McCullum and Williamson good at what they do? Brendon was much more explosive. He could come out and dominate anyone on his day. His attitude was: get em before they get me. Try and take bowlers down. Kane plays more of a waiting game, wears the opposition bowlers down, and his record is second to none in all formats of the game. The main thing I have learned from playing under both of them is that there is more than one way to skin a cat. Use your own method and success will come once you are true to yourself.Are you patient as a player? I dont think I am, really. That is one of the things that I probably struggle with a little bit in Test cricket - trying to find a natural tempo to play at. My natural game is being more aggressive. In the last few months I have watched guys like David Warner, Virat Kohli, and Kane to a certain extent, who go out and still play quite aggressively in Test cricket. And now I realise you can play aggressively in the longer format of the game.What is your favourite stroke? There is nothing better than a hook shot. When a fast bowler comes in and tries to dig it in short and a batsman just stands tall and hooks it away. Something like what Kevin Pietersen used to play is the best shot to watch.You are being talked about as a Test allrounder. How good do you think you are? You have to think you are one of the best going around to succeed in the international game. I have been hindered by a back injury in the last couple of years. But having come back and played county cricket [for Derbyshire], I still believe if I am putting my best foot forward in both departments, then I am one of the handful of the best allrounders in the world. And hopefully over the next six months or so I can begin to prove that on the field with results, because you can think of yourself as much as you want, but that doesnt really count unless you can put the numbers on the board. What is one cliché you want commentators to cut out? The one that most annoys me is when commentators talk about pulling off the front foot. Any pull shot is off the front foot by definition. So when the batsman pulls off the front foot and the commentator says he is taking the bowler on, I find that really strange.How exactly do you plan to tackle R Ashwin on Indian pitches? He is a high-quality bowler, a top-ten bowler at the moment, and in his own conditions he will be a big challenge. But we have got some pretty good players of spin in our top order. We have been talking of ways to combat him. But I certainly wont be giving away my plans here.You have already wondered why airports dont have hairdressers. What about hotel rooms? It would be quite nice if hotels had Netflix in the rooms.What if you could introduce a new Law in the game? I would quite like to see what would happen if there were no rules on ball-tampering. If you could just do whatever you wanted to the ball. That would probably make Test cricket more interesting. It could make more tedious sessions more exciting with the ball reversing more.What about cricket at the Olympics? I think the ICC should be doing everything within their power to get cricket into the Olympics. One of our main aims as a sport should be expanding playing numbers throughout the world, and the Olympic Games is a perfect way to achieve this.What has cricket taught you so far? Cricket has taught me that you cant get too down during the bad times. Everyone through their career has their highs and their lows, struggle mentally and physically. If you can continue to take one day at a time and not get too disillusioned by your failures then you will probably have a lot more fun, a lot more play, a lot more success than failures.

Discount Baseball Jerseys . But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position.

The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. Cheap MLB Jerseys Free Shipping . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. VILLANOVA, Pa. -- Villanova will soon have to pack its national championship banners and raise them in another gym during a season-long road trip.The outdated Pavilion is undergoing a needed face-lift.The 2015-16 national champion Wildcats received a $22.6 million donation from an alumnus in April to renovate their arena, and plans are underway to use the cash to help give the gym a more contemporary feel.Because it takes time to add suites, concession stands and other amenities, the Wildcats will be forced to play a season on the road during construction.Earliest would be next year, coach Jay Wright told The Associated Press. It could be year after that, year after that. But its inevitable. And I think inevitable within the next two, three years.The Wildcats most logical new home would be the Palestra, the basketball cathedral on Penns campus and home of city hoops. Saint Josephs played its home games there in 2008-09 when its gym underwent extensive renovations.Bill Finneran made the largest athletic gift in Villanova history to give the Pavilion an overhaul and support the mens basketball program. Finneran is a 1963 Villanova alumnus and the chairman and co-founder of EXOP Capital, a long/short hedge fund firm in New York.Unlike some deep-pocket boosters, his gift didnt come with a naming rights demand, and corporate sponsorship is on the table.I know the guy well. I dont think he cares, Wright said. I think its going to be a strategy tied in with fundraising.The arena has been without corporate sponsorship or an honorary title since 1997, when it stripped the last name of millionaire donor John du Pont. Du Pont, the subject of tthe film Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, was convicted of the 1996 murder of Olympic gold medalist wrestler Mark Schultz.dddddddddddd. Du Pont had pledged $5 million to Villanova for the on-campus arena when it opened in 1986; school officials have said he actually gave the university between $500,000 and $1 million.The Pavilion opened in 1986 -- months after the 1984-85 team won the national title -- and serves as the home arena for the mens and womens basketball programs. Its a multipurpose gym for other varsity and intramural sports.The 6,500-seat venue is more of a super-sized YMCA than a state-of-the art arena. There are sparse concession stands and restrooms and no true suites or other high-end amenities. Courtside seats are filled with aging, deep-pocketed alumni instead of passionate students that would create a big-game atmosphere.Its not a great venue to watch basketball.Its not, Wright said, laughing. Weve got to gut it, and weve got to make everything better. The fan experience, the sight lines, amenities, suites. Its got to be a major project. And its got to be an all-basketball arena.The Wildcats play three to six games a season at the Wells Fargo Center, the home of the NBAs Philadelphia 76ers, and generally pack the 20,000-seat arena.We want to keep the unique experience that our games during the week, well play here on campus. On weekends, well play at the Wells Fargo Center, Wright said. If we just stayed here in our little main-line building, we wouldnt have any connection to Philly.
