Australia face South Africa in the first of three T20Is live on Sky Sports on Friday ahead of the ICC World Twenty20. Authentic Lakers Jerseys . The tourists lost their latest T20I series 3-0 to India in January with 19 players selected as they tussled over what team to pick.With the squad now settled, we asked Mr Cricket Mike Hussey for his thoughts on how the squad is shaping up…Do Australia know what their best top-order line-up is?Mike says: The selectors have some tough decisions to make because its a pretty powerful squad. Shane Watson, Aaron Finch, David Warner and Usman Khawaja have all done really well. There has been talk of Warner dropping down to three, which would leave Watson and Khawaja battling it out with Finch for one of the opening spots.Both Watson and Khawaja were with me at Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash. Watto is in a really nice head space at the moment, not taking the game as seriously as he perhaps once did, and he benefitted from working with Jacques Kallis on his batting in the Big Bash. When he is on fire he is a very difficult man to stop, and he has got such clarity in his game right now, it makes him a dangerous proposition.I must admit that I didnt think Khawaja would bat as well as he did (two hundreds in four innings with a 172.50 average and 163.50 strike rate). I always knew he was a fantastic player but his recent form has blown everyone away. He doesnt slog it, just plays really good cricket shots off front and back foot. He is a very relaxed character and certainly the big stage will not faze him; hes a phenomenal player. Will either South Africa or Australia walk away with the trophy? How crucial could the teams all-round depth be?Mike says: The all-rounders are the teams real strength. Watson is good enough to be a top-four batsman but he was also bowling really well for me at the Thunder. Mitch Marsh is a power-hitter through the middle, and is also bowling really well. Then theres also James Faulkner, who has been shining in T20 cricket for some time now; hes a big hitter with the bat, and a terrific death bowler with a lot of change-ups.Ive weighed it up a little bit in my head and I can see all of them playing, especially if Watson ends up batting at the top. Thats a bonus because it frees up space for the others down the order. Nathan Coulter-Nile is in the squad and could theoretically fight with Faulkner for a spot. He is probably a better bowler, but not as strong with the bat, so it depends on the balance of the side they want to go with. It certainly gives Steve Smith a lot of options. Kumar Sangakkara gives a brief history of the ICC T20 World Cup How strong is the attack?Mike says: Its a real shame Mitchell Starc is not available through injury. Thats a huge miss for the Australian team. I look at the attack and there does look to be a lack of experience there, but there is still an awful lot of skill and quality there too. They just need to handle the situation, and the pressure as well as they possibly can.In the recent game against India at the SCG, Andrew Tye bowled the last over and didnt bowl as well as he could have and India won the game, but he is honestly one of the best death bowlers in Australia. He has a brilliant slower ball, and not many players from around the world will have seen much of him, and so he could end up getting a lot of wickets.Im pretty confident Adam Zampa, the leggy, will play. He has bowled really well in the Big Bash for quite a few years now and so probably deserves the chance over Ashton Agar as the spinner in the side, backed up by Glenn Maxwell and Smith for the odd over here and there. Wrist spinners tend to take a lot of wickets in T20 cricket so that variety Zampa brings will be important.Watch South Africa take on Australia in a three-match Twenty20 series, starting with the first T20I at 3.55pm this Friday on Sky Sports 3.

Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Discount Lakers Jerseys. Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. http://www.cheaplakersjerseyschina.com/ . Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz. Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. STANFORD, Calif. -- After opening the season with losses to lower-division Eastern Washington and Boise State, Washington State has staged a dramatic turnaround and is now overwhelming the Pac-12s recent powerhouses.The Cougars followed a lopsided win over Oregon that was fueled by a dominant running attack with a thorough beating of No. 15 Stanford led by the play in the trenches.Luke Falk threw for 357 yards and four touchdowns and the defensive line shut down Christian McCaffrey and the Cardinal offense in a 42-16 victory on Saturday night.We had to realize theres no good finesse teams in football, receiver Gabe Marks said. Even the teams you guys like to call finesse teams, they really arent. ... We had to come back to basics and just grind it out.The Cougars (3-2, 2-0) held the Cardinal (3-2, 2-2) to 296 yards of offense and didnt allow an offensive score until the final play of the game. The offensive line managed to protect Falk well enough to allow him to find his receivers downfield.Falk connected with Tavares Martin Jr. twice in the first half and added second-half TD passes to Marks and River Cracraft to help the Cougars follow up last weeks 51-33 win over Oregon by ending an eight-game losing streak to Stanford. The Ducks and Cardinal have combined to win the past seven conference titles.That streak is in serious jeopardy this year as the Cardinal got blown out for the second straight game, losing in back-to-back weeks for the first time in six seasons under coach David Shaw. Stanford lost 44-6 at Washington last week. The Ducks are 0-3 in conference play.Stanford has been the class of the conference for a while now, Marks said. Since Ive been here, theyve been a powerhouse. For us, these past two weeks have really been important to finally see the work pay off and realize our potential and becoming what we thought we would be.Making matters worse for the Cardinal was the fact that last years Heisman runner-up McCaffrey went to the locker room in the second half with an injury and didnt return to the game. McCaffrey came back to the sideline and had his helmet on, but didntt re-enter the game. Lakers Jerseys From China. There was no reason to put him in late in the game, Shaw said. We just left him out. Well see how he is during the course of the week.THE TAKEAWAYWashington State: The Cougars got their first win against a team ranked in the top 15 since knocking off No. 5 Texas in the 2003 Holiday Bowl. Falk stepped up in key spots, connecting on a 29-yard score to Martin on fourth-and-7 to make it 14-3 in the second quarter. After letting Stanford back into the game with an interception that Frank Buncom returned for a TD, Falk hit Marks for a score on third-and-goal from the 17 to make it 28-10.Stanford: The Cardinal offense struggled to do anything as the offensive line was dominated in the trenches and Ryan Burns missed on chances for a few big plays. McCaffrey was held to 35 yards on eight carries and one catch for 5 yards. Stanford allowed four sacks after giving up eight last week and the only big play came on a 44-yard pass to Michael Rector on the final play of the first half. Shaw said the Cardinal missed four potential TD passes and the offense didnt reach the end zone until the final play. Even the usually reliable Conrad Ukropina missed two field goals.So weve got to hit those opportunities. Shaw said. You know, its not just one of those. Weve got to hit multiple. If those things are there, weve got to hit them.MUSIC MANCougars coach Mike Leach didnt want to blame a couple of false starts on the noise, even if he did say the public address speakers were especially loud.It was loud and it sounded good, he said. I thought they played good music, too. I mean, some of the music I could do without, but I thought Stanford has great taste in music. Who would have thunk it?POLL IMPLICATIONSStanford should plummet again after dropping eight spots last week in the AP Top 25 poll .UP NEXTWashington State: The Cougars return home to host UCLA.Stanford: The Cardinal take a break from conference play to travel to struggling Notre Dame (2-4). Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
