Cricket News Nathan Lyon concedes unwanted world record, enters this dubious list in Adelaide Test against India

first_imgNew Delhi: Nathan Lyon had a decent first day at the Adelaide Oval in the first Test against India. The offspinner gave good support to Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc by picking up 2/83 in 28 overs. Lyon picked up the wickets of Rohit Sharma (37) and Rishabh Pant (25) but during the course of his spell, he was hit for two sixes. One was by Ajinkya Rahane and another one by Rohit and this made him the owner of an unwanted world record in Tests. The 31-year-old became the first spinner in the history of the game to be hit for 200 sixes in Tests.Before Lyon, Sri Lanka’s veteran off-spinner Rangana Herath, who recently retired from international cricket following the England Test in Galle, had held the record for most sixes being hit of his own bowling with 194. Lyon had passed Herath’s record during the second innings of the Abu Dhabi Test against Pakistan, when he was hit for four sixes which took his tally past Herath, who finished with 433 wickets.Read More | Yasir Shah creates history, becomes fastest to 200 Test wicketsIn Adelaide, Lyon was greeted to the wicket by Rahane when the batsman danced down the track and hoicked a flighted delivery into the stands at wide long on. Rohit was almost beaten in the flight but somehow managed to slog a flatter delivery to deep backward square leg where debutant Marcus Harris ran to his left and leapt to take the catch but the momentum dragged him over the ropes.Read More | Cheteshwar Pujara shows value of defence and application in AdelaideHowever, Lyon had his revenge as Rohit danced down the track and mistimed a slog to backward square leg and Harris ran in to complete the catch. The offspinner’s day became even better when he managed to get the left-handed Pant to edge a straighter delivery to Paine.Lyon has a great record in Tests against India, taking 66 wickets in 15 games, including five five-wicket hauls and one ten-wicket haul, which he achieved at the Adelaide Oval in 2014. In that match, his spell of 12/286 cancelled out Virat Kohli’s 115 and 141 as Australia held their nerve to clinch the match by 48 runs. Lyon has the most number of wickets by an Australian offspinner in Tests, with 320 from 81 Tests.

In those 12 years, Wellington has had an entree place in 10 of those 12 years. 2015 is no exception, as the sister team of Madi and Mekenna Adams, clinched a seventh place finish in the doubles competition of the Class 4A State Tennis Tournament in Winfield on Saturday. They become the first sister team in Wellington history to have placed in a state tournament. Madi, the senior, finishes as a two time state qualifier. Mekenna, a sophomore, is now a two time state placer, having placed ninth last season with Maggie Fink.   “What a run this was,” said Brian Aufdengarten, Wellington head tennis coach. “Three or four weeks ago I didn’t know if the sisters playing together was going to work.  They made adjustments and so did us coaches and it all fell together.”   Wellington took two doubles to the state tournament. Dietra Sober/Madi Lewellen did not place but picked up a huge first round win at the Vaughan tennis courts. Overall, the team finished 12th. The following is a synopsis of the two days the two teams had. More pictures can be found here. Madi Adams finishes her high school career as a two time state qualifierThe Adams sisters Adams girls opened with Angleton/Wendt from Chanute in the first round and easily won 6-1,6-2.   “We played well,” Aufdengarten said. “Madi was attacking the net and volleying extremely well. We felt like Chanute was a dangerous team but didn’t have the consistency on their shots on each series.” .The girls then played a team with a bye in the first round and fed into Carlsen/Slettehaugh from Bishop Miege.   “We didn’t have our best performance here,” Aufdengarten said. “The Bishop Miege team played an awkward style with a player starting off of the court and running in on a serve or both players at the baseline with the server running up.” The girls won the first set 6-4 and the second set 7-5.  This win guaranteed the girls could play on day two and be a state medalist.   “I was so happy after this match,” Aufdengarten said. “We wanted Madison to get to day two this year and get a medal, and we wanted Mekenna to get another medal.” The pair then lost in the quarterfinals to Ediger/Ivers from McPherson 6-0, 6-3.   “The first set we never really competed,” Aufdengarten said. “In set two, we got their attention and jumped up 3-2.  Man we were playing well there. It was very impressive going against one of the top teams in the state.: On Day 2, Adams/Adams opened up with Parsons and fell behind 4-1.   “After I talked to them about cutting down on unforced errors, we rallied off eight straight games to win 9-4,” Aufdengarten said. The Adams sisters then played Bellah/Roets from Smoky Valley.  It was a close match as they were neck and neck up until 6-6 then Smoky Valley won three in a row to win 9-6.   “The match was so even,” Aufdengarten said. “Smoky Valley had 25 winners to our 15 winners, that is were the game was won.   This put Wellington in the seventh place match were they played Nussbaum/Cody from Collegiate.  Wellington won the match 9-6 to finish seventh.   Madison ended her career as a two time state qualifier and ending with 90 wins for her career.  Mekenna now has a ninth place and seventh place medal in two,years along with 53 wins.   “I know this is something these two can always talk about doing this with your sibling has to be a great feeling and sense of pride,” Aufdengarten said.Dietra Sober is a senior for Wellington.Sober, Lewellen As far as the other doubles teams, Lewellen and Sober beat Wright/Farris from Parsons 5-7, 6-3, 10-4.   “We fell behind 5-1 in the first set then settled down and started our comeback,” Aufdengarten said. “This was a nice win. We had lost to this team at the Tournament of Champions 8-4. “It showed we are a better team now, that was the girls second meet ever playing together.”  Next Sober/Lewellen lost to Ediger/Ivers from McPherson 6-2, 6-1, the same duo that would beat the Adams sister later.   “This is a very good team and we didn’t play too badly,” Aufdengarten said. “The McPherson team finished second overall.” In Sober/Lewellen’s next match they played Cunningham/Hale of Spring Hill.   “We stayed even for a long time but just couldn’t get it going against them.,” Aufdengarten said. The Wellington duo led 5-4 but then lost three straight games and trailed 8-5.Madi Lewellen should return as one of the two premiere players on the Wellington team next fall.  “I told them let’s give it everything we got and get it to a tiebreak and our girls responded tying it at 8-8,” Aufdengarten said. In the tiebreak, Wellington had two match points but couldn’t get two points in a row.  Spring Hill won the tiebreak 10-8.   “It was such a heartbreaking loss,” Aufdengarten said. “We were all kind of stunned after the match.  These two did so well they only played in four meets together before regionals, I’m so proud of the two of them.” The pair ended up 15-8 together.  The Wellington state girls tennis records can be found here.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
