England flirted with humiliation before Moeen Alis unbeaten 41 laid the platform for a 15-run World Twenty20 win over Afghanistan, in Delhi. Eoin Morgans men slumped to 85-7 against the Associate nation after losing three wickets in four balls for no runs before Moeen (41no) and David Willey (20no) shared an unbroken stand of 57 in 5.3 overs - plundering 44 off the final three - to swell the total to 142-7.The collapse brought to mind Englands defeat to the Netherlands in 2014 but there was to be no such embarrassment this time around as Willey (2-23), Moeen (1-17) and Adil Rashid (2-18) combined to limit Afghanistan to 127-9 despite some late, lusty blows from Shafiqullah (35 not out off 20 balls). Nick Knight felt the batting of both David Willey and Moeen Ali was instrumental in Englands victory Englands batting capitulation was swift after James Vince (22) - in for the injured Alex Hales - and Joe Root (12) had rallied following the early dismissal of Jason Roy, bowled by Amir Hamza for five.Vince chipped a return catch to off-spinner Mohammad Nabi (2-17), Eoin Morgan shouldered arms to be bowled first ball and Root was run out amid chaotic scenes as the innings subsided from 42-1 to 42-4. Matt Prior discusses the reasons why England seem to struggle to beat lesser sides at ICC world tournaments Ben Stokes turned the ball away, and Root charged up the wicket going for a single, only to be sent back by his partner, and the fuming Yorkshire batsman was run out by Nabi - the spinner initially knocking the bails off with his body before completing the dismissal by grabbing a stump out of the turf.The rot didnt stop there - Jos Buttler (seven) was brilliantly caught by Nabi, diving forward at short extra cover, off Samiullah Shenwari before Stokes (seven) dragged a googly from 17-year-old leg-spinner Rashid Khan (2-17) onto his stumps, falling onto his backside in the process. Ben Stokes of England looks in disbelief after he is bowled by Rashid Khan From 57-6 Chris Jordan (15) patiently rebuilt with Moeen but then chipped a mistimed shot straight to Khan to leave England 85-7.Moeen and Willey nudged their team past the 100 mark, to ensure England would at least have something to bowl at, before crashing 25 off the 19th over of the innings - Willey launching Hamza for two maximums.Willeys sway continued with the ball as he trapped the dangerous Mohammad Shahzad lbw with his third delivery and skipper Asghar Stanikzai quickly followed, snicking Jordan to Root at slip to make it 12-2. Eoin Morgan felt that England did not get their batting performance right England picked up a third wicket in as many overs as Gulbadin Naib shanked a short ball from Willey to Stokes at extra cover - a brief break in play ensuing as a kite, its string broken, was removed from the outfield.Rashid Khan (15) tried to put wind back in Afghanistans chase, cutting Jordan away for six, but that intent proved his undoing as he drove Moeens fifth ball to Morgan at extra cover. Fellow spinner Adil Rashid also struck in his first over, Noor Ali punching the simplest of return catches back to the leg-spinner to make it 39-5.Shenwari (22) kept the dimmest of hopes alive but when he skied Stokes to Root at extra cover the game - much to Englands obvious relief - was up. Why do England not learn from previous mistakes when playing spin in the sub-continent?

Joe Young Jersey . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. Myles Turner Jersey . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. http://www.officialpacersprostore.com/kids-victor-oladipo-pacers-jersey/ . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Darren Collison Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. Domantas Sabonis Jersey . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Jeff Henderson had an Olympic gold medal in his grasp. Just not one he could call his own.With a pressure-packed jump on his final try of the night, the American long jumper changed all that. He won his own gold medal in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday and returned the one he carried for motivation to its rightful owner.Now Henderson and his coach, 1984 triple jump champ Al Joyner, really have something to celebrate.He said, I want you to give me back my gold medal and keep your gold medal, Henderson recounted. I gave it back before I went out there. I knew I was going to win.He was clutch on his final attempt. Its becoming an American trend. The night before, Michelle Carter won the shot put on her final attempt.Henderson rocked back and forth before starting down the runway. He flew into the air, and when he landed in the sand, he instantly knew that was good enough for gold. His jump of 8.38 meters surpassed South Africas Luvo Manyonga, who finished with silver. Defending champion Greg Rutherford of Britain was left with the bronze.I came here to win, Rutherford said. Im going away disappointed.Just imagine how Jarrion Lawson feels. The American had the final jump of the evening and thought his was well out there -- maybe even gold-medal worthy -- but he dragged his left hand in the sand before landing.That was the spot to where officials measured. He finished in fourth place.I still think I had it. Maybe I hit my hand, maybe I didnt, said Laawson, who was an All-American at Arkansas.ddddddddddddJust cant argue with technology.But I think that was a No. 1 jump.History will reflect Henderson as the winner, though. He said Joyner had used a similar ploy as motivation before -- with his late wife, Florence Griffith Joyner.It certainly got Hendersons attention.Hes always like, Youre a champion. Believe in yourself, explained the 27-year-old Henderson, who is from McAlmont, Arkansas. The last jump I was just like, OK, just keep everything the same, dont change nothing.I knew it was the winning jump after I saw it.Hows this for a little more history: Henderson captured gold medal No. 999 for the United States in the Summer Olympics. He was about 30 minutes shy of winning the magical 1,000th, but it went to the womens 4x100-meter medley relay swim team.Feels amazing, Henderson said. To be in that group and that category is awesome. To have that, 999, I didnt know that. It feels like Im in a dream, honestly.Still think the long jump is boring, Carl Lewis? The track icon recently took issue with his former event and a lack of star power. Henderson has no issues with Lewis sentiment.Although he will give his good friend some good-natured ribbing.I know Carl Lewis. Hes biting his tongue right now, Henderson said. I have nothing against Carl. Wait to see what he says after this.
