Sri Lanka Cricket has announced it will invest heavily in the existing club-based domestic structure, although a provincial first-class tournament is also in the works. Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China . The board has promised a grant of 11 million Sri Lankan rupees (USD $74,000 approx) for each of the 14 clubs in the first-class tournament, and has also said it will beef up facilities by providing bowling machines, mechanised rollers and other groundskeeping equipment. Ten Tier B clubs will get a grant of nine million rupees as well.We have identified our clubs as the places that we promote, sustain and develop cricket in our country, and we will invest as much as possible in this area, SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala said. For Sri Lanka to make an indelible mark on the world arena we need to focus on strengthening and developing our domestic cricket - this will provide us with a world-class pool of players to select from. Our focus is on the quality of cricket and not just the quantity.The announcement of these grants comes weeks after SLC had reinstated domestic contracts, handing out 85 of them to cricketers from a variety of clubs. This was a repudiation of the pay-model devised by 2015s SLC interim committee, who sought to better incentivise players by paying out substantial match fees for games played, instead of handing out contracts that guarantee income through the season.The present board also rejected the 2015 interim committees vision for Sri Lankas domestic cricket, having canned the provincial tournament devised by Mahela Jayawardene.Moreover, these latest grants suggest the board does not want to move away from a club-based domestic structure, despite growing criticism of the competition. Several former players have suggested the current first-class format does not encourage high-quality cricket, and have also voiced concerns that senior cricket has not meaningfully spread beyond Basnahira (western province) and Ruhuna (southern province).SLC is expected to announce the details of a new provincial tournament over the next few weeks. However, this tournament is expected to be much shorter than the club tournament, and is likely to feature just four teams.The Premier League Tournament - for now the main first-class competition in Sri Lanka - will be unchanged from the previous seasons format. Fourteen teams will be split into two groups, before the top sides progress to a Super Eight round-robin. Cheap MLB Jerseys 2018 .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. MLB Jerseys China .

MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. MIAMI -- Don Mattingly was a New York Yankees minor-leaguer when Thurman Munson died in a plane crash on Aug. 2, 1979.Munson was the Yankees 32-year-old star catcher -- a seven-time All-Star, a three-time Gold Glove winner, a two-time World Series champion and a former Rookie of the Year and American League MVP.The Miami Marlins, the team Mattingly now manages, suffered a horrific tragedy of their early own early Sunday morning when 24-year-old pitcher Jose Fernandez -- already a two-time All-Star -- died in a high-speed boat crash.Mattingly said he can see the correlation to what the Yankees lost in Munson and what the Marlins lost in Fernandez.It feels like that, Mattingly said. The way we talk about Jose and his personality, you are not going to forget that. Jose will have a presence in this organization even after were long gone.Fernandezs tragic death seemed to inspire the Marlins (78-78) on Monday in a 7-3 win over the New York Mets. It was the Marlins first game after Fernandezs body was discovered and after the scheduled Sunday game against the Atlanta Braves was cancelled.The Mets (83-74) clearly ran into a team determined to honor Fernandez, but whether that emotion can carry over to Tuesday is another question.New York will start right-hander Noah Syndergaard, whose turn was moved back a couple of days due to step throat.Syndergaard, whose fastball consistently clocks at 100 mph, is 13-9 this year with a 2.63 ERA. He has been fairly consistent alll year, winning six games at home and seven on the road and posting a 2. Cheap Jerseys For Sale. 56 ERA before the All-Star break and a 2.75 ERA after the Midsummer Classic.However, given his electric stuff, he probably hasnt been as dominant as the Mets would like, especially with the team in a tight playoff race. New York sits in the first NL wild-card position, a half-game above San Francisco (82-74). The St. Louis Cardinals (81-75) are a game behind the Giants.Miami will counter Syndergaard with right-hander Tom Koehler, who is 9-12 with a 4.02 ERA.Koehler will make his ninth attempt this season at getting his 10th win. He is 0-4 in his past eight starts and hasnt won a game since Aug. 9 vs. the Giants.Against the Mets for his career, he is 2-7 with a 4.37 ERA. This year against New York, he is 0-2 with a 5.63 ERA.Mets manager Terry Collins, though, is clearly concerned that his team will once again get caught up in the emotion of what is happening with the Marlins and their loss of Fernandez.It was a tough night (on Monday), but we have to move on, Collins said. I saw some real emotion (before the game). You can understand that from their team, but you saw some of our guys who were touched by the whole thing, too.We are all going to miss (Fernandez) for a long time. He will be in our minds forever.
