Batting 100 overs in the fourth innings West Indies lost the first Test in Dubai by 56 runs and the second in Abu Dhabi by 133, but they made Pakistan toil for both victories. Nike Air More Uptempo For Sale . They batted 109 and 108 overs in each of those final innings; only the fourth time they had batted for more than 100 overs in the fourth innings more than once in a series. The other three instances were: against England in 1930, Pakistan in 1977 and Australia in 1999. Only 12 times has a team done it in an away series, and this was a first for West Indies away from the Caribbean.Taking all three Tests into the fifth day Before this tour of the UAE, West Indies had taken only five away Tests out of the last 13, across five tours, into the fifth day. Of those five Tests, only the one in Dunedin had not been interrupted by rain or bad light over the first four days. They managed to take all three Tests in this series against Pakistan into the fifth day, and not a minute was lost to rain or bad light either. This was only the 12th series since 2000 in which West Indies took at least three Tests in a series into the fifth day.Brathwaite making Test history as an opener Never before in 2228 Test matches had an opener remained unbeaten in both innings of a Test. Kraigg Brathwaite did it in Sharjah. He carried his bat in the first innings, making 142 while West Indies were dismissed for 337, and then scored an unbeaten 60 in the second innings as they successfully chased 153 to win by five wickets.Holder turning a Test with the ballJason Holder has not had an easy time as West Indies captain. There were questions over whether he was too young when he was appointed in October 2015, at the age of 23. Since then West Indies have changed coaches and have had issues with senior players over selection. While coping with problems outside his control, Holder has also had to fend off questions over his place in the side: his batting average hasnt risen above 30 since his ninth Test and his bowling average was only a fraction under 50 after his 18th - the Dubai Test of this series. So his spell of 5 for 30 in Pakistans second innings in Sharjah, which began the collapse that culminated in West Indies needing only 153 to win, was a surprise - and a significant improvement over his previous career-best of 3 for 15. The Sharjah Test was Holders first win as captain, two days shy of his 25th birthday.Bishoo striking at a better rate than YasirDevendra Bishoo had taken only four wickets at 67 apiece in two innings in the recent home Tests against India, so a haul of 18 in three Tests against Pakistan in the UAE was quite a turnaround. Bishoo finished the series second on the wicket charts, taking them at an average of 27. His strike rate of 45 was better than that of Yasir Shah, who was the top wicket-taker. Bishoo took ten in the Dubai Test - 8 for 49 in the second innings - and seven in West Indies victory in Sharjah. Bishoos 18 are the most wickets for a West Indies spinner in a series since Lance Gibbs took 21 against India in 1974. Nike Air More Uptempo Black White . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. Nike Air More Uptempo Supreme For Sale .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights. http://www.airmoreuptemposale.com/ . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski says hell have a lot of good players once his team gets healthy.He has a few right now.Luke Kennard scored 24 points to lead top-ranked Blue Devils to the championship of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament with a 75-65 win Sunday over No. 21 Rhode Island.The sophomore guard made eight of his 11 shots from the floor, including 4 of 5 from 3-point range for the Blue Devils (4-1), who never trailed. Amile Jefferson added 17 points and 15 rebounds, his second consecutive double-double in the tournament.We have unbelievable toughness, Jefferson said. When (coach) tells us he needs us and its next man up, we believe that.Jared Terrell led Rhode Island (4-1) with 22 points and Martin Hassan added 15. Dukes defense held Rams star E.C. Matthews to nine points, more than 10 below his season average.Duke led by eight points at halftime and quickly stretched that to 39-26 early in the second half, capping a 14-2 run with a 3-pointer by Kennard. The Blue Devils were up by as many as 18 points in the second half and led 70-52 before Rhode Island used a pressing defense to close the gap late in the game.Dukes Chase Jeter, who left Saturdays game against Penn State with what at the time appeared to be a serious left ankle injury, checked in midway through the first half, but quickly picked up two fouls and was forced back to the bench. The 6-foot-10 sophomore played just eight minutes and did not score.The Blue Devils starting five each played more than 30 minutes because of the myriad injuries suffered by the team this season. Matt Jones finished with 13 points, freshman Frank Jackson had 11 and Grayson Allen added 10, two of them on a driving layup late in the first half that gave him his 1,000th career point.BIG PICTUREDuke: The Blue Devils showed they are still a formidable team even without their three injured freshmen -- Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum and Marques Bolden -- and junior Sean Obi. Krzyzewski said Allen played at about 50 percent of his ability after the right foot injury he suffered in last weeks loss to Kansas; Jeter played despite leaving the Penn State game, and Jefferson played hurt this weekend.When were healthy were going to have a lot of good players, Krzyzewski said.

They fell to 0-4 all-time against the Blue Devils and are 15-97 all-time against ranked opposition.I think we were caught up in the moment a little bit, coach Danny Hurley said. We tried to do a little too much individually. But we were still there.POLL IMPLICATIONSDuke, which lost to Kansas on Tuesday, should stay near the top of the Top 25 with the tournament championship.Rhode Island may remain ranked despite the loss on the strength of its win Saturday against the Bearcats.STAT OF THE GAMENeither team shot well from 3-point range. Duke missed its first eight shots from distance and players other than Kennard were just 2 of 16 from behind the arc. But the Blue Devils used their stifling perimeter defense to hold Rhode Island to just three 3-pointers on 11 attempts. The Blue Devils opponents are shooting under 20 percent (17 of 86) from 3-point range this season.FAMILY AFFAIRWhen Duke came to the interview room Sunday, Krzyzewski was asked about the conversation he had after the game with Mr. Hurley.Which one? Krzyzewski asked.Danny Hurley is the coach at URI. His father, Hall of Fame high school coach Bob Hurley Sr., was in attendance at the Mohegan Sun this weekend. And, of course, Bobby Hurley, now the coach at Arizona State, played for Krzyzewski at Duke.Ive known Bob Sr. for over three decades, Krzyzewski said. And his wife. The Hurleys are part of our family. So is Danny, we love them. Im not sure theres a better coach in the history of the game (than Bob Sr.).
