which forced a punt

For the first time in eight matches, a Test in England went into a fifth day. Jalen Hurd Youth Jersey . Each of the five Ashes Tests in 2015 were done and dusted long before that, while Alastair Cooks side took just three and four days respectively to defeat Sri Lanka at Headingley and in Durham.However, a combination of Sri Lankan grit and wet weather ensured we had five days play at Lords - but what five things did we glean from the action at The Home of Cricket? Nick Compton howls after nicking off for 19 Curtains for Compton?Its probably safe to say that England are hunting for a new No 3, with Nick Comptons demise for 19 second time around at Lords leaving him with just 117 runs from his past 10 Test innings. What made Comptons dismissal particularly galling was that he looked in decent nick while deputising for Cook as opener with the skipper having bruised his knee, the batsman smoking a boundary through point and pulling for four through square leg before snicking behind.The chances of him adding further Test runs to his tally 775 from 16 matches now appears slim, with Durhams Scott Borthwick - 574 runs and three hundreds in 2016 at an average of 82, over 1,000 runs in each of the past three seasons - an obvious candidate to slot in behind Cook and Alex Hales against Pakistan. Other options are Essexs Tom Westley, Middlesexs Sam Robson or promoting Joe Root or James Vince from their respective No 4 and No 5 berths. Scott Borthwick has three Championship tons this season Englands selection quandariesEngland have a few other dilemmas, too. Jonny Bairstow is, to quote Lawrence Booth from the latest episode of Cricket Writers on TV, batting like a god with two tons in the series, including a Test best 167 at Lords, but he has made a couple of fumbles behind the stumps, with a catch off the bowling of Chris Woakes grassed in north London. So, should the selectors consider recalling the destructive Jos Buttler and allow Bairstow to play as a specialist batsman?Plus, with Ben Stokes set to be fit for the majority of the Pakistan series following knee surgery, will he return in place of the man that has impressed in his absence, Woakes, or Steve Finn? Woakes is in top form, bowling quicker and at far superior batsman, though England may be reluctant to omit a man of Finns pedigree - he has 120 Test wickets, height and bounce that can frighten any batsman, and destroyed Australia on his Ashes comeback last summer. Jonny Bairstow - will he keep the gloves? DRS and a harsh no-ballSri Lanka were on the receiving end of some unfortunate decisions at the Home of Cricket. Their review to have Bairstow trapped lbw on 56 was scuppered when the decision stayed with umpires call despite ball-tracking showing a large portion of leg stump would have been clattered. Then, Nuwan Pradeep was wrongly adjudged to have overstepped by umpire Rod Tucker when he bowled Hales in Englands second innings.The solutions? Well, Mahela Jayawardena has confirmed that the ICC are considering a change to the DRS rules, whereby only 25 per cent of the ball and not the current 50 would need to be striking the wicket for a decision to be overturned, while Sky Sports expert Bob Willis feels the fourth umpire could stop putting sugar lumps in tea and call front-foot no-balls so that the on-field umpires can focus on the goings-on at the batsmans end. Nuwan Pradeep glares at the line after being wrongly adjudged to have overstepped Rain doesnt have to be a painSure, wet weather in the capital affected day four and then dented both Englands hopes of earning a series whitewash - it would have been just their fourth in Test cricket since 1978 - and Sri Lankas chances of pulling off an unlikely run chase of 362 by returning on day five, but the precipitation outside meant two cricketing legends - Shane Warne and Jayawardena - could deliver masterclasses inside the Sky Sports Zone.First, Warne discussed the art of leg spin, going into depth about how best to turn the ball, what pace to bowl at, when to send down your variations and which field settings best aid a young tweaker. Jayawardena then explained how players should bat against spin, why Warne was so tough to negotiate, and how pick length, sweep and use your feet. The demos are a must-watch for any budding cricketer and you can catch them in full On Demand. Shane Warne delivers a leg-spin masterclass in The Zone, explaining how to spin the ball and generate drift to batsmen Exciting ODIs in storeMuch of Sri Lankas brittleness from the early part of the Test series has gone - although they did suffer a disappointing batting collapse at Lords - meaning the impending five-match ODI series, which begins at Trent Bridge on June 21, should be a belter. Hales will enter the contests as a man in form, with three fifties in five Test innings, while the tourists probably wont relish facing Bairstow again after his electric batting earned him a white-ball recall.If we get anything like the sides meeting at the ICC World T20 earlier this year, when Buttler smoked 37 from 66 balls and a hobbling Angelo Mathews walloped some ginormous sixes to give England more than a few jitters during the run chase, were in for a treat. Plus, Sri Lanka will be looking for another ODI series triumph on these shores, having prevailed 3-2 two years ago, despite being skittled for just 67 in defeat at Old Trafford! Will Alex Hales take his Test form into the one-day arena? Watch England and Sri Lankas five-match ODI series live on Sky Sports, starting with the opening match, at Trent Bridge, from 1.30pm, on Tuesday, June 21. Tom Rathman Youth Jersey .

Reilly completed three touchdown passes as the Edmonton Eskimos came back to beat the B.C. Lions 27-20 in the first game of the CFL season for both teams. The last time the Eskimos won in Vancouver, on July 21, 2012, Reilly was still a Lions backup. The Lions suffered only their third loss at B.C. Place Stadium since it received a new retractable roof in 2011. "Its a fresh start, its a new season, and this is a tough place to win in," said Reilly after beginning his second season with the Eskimos following a January 2013 trade from B.C. "Records aside, or whos playing in the black and orange, theyve made this place loud, and theyve done well since theyve come back from Empire (Field, the Lions temporary home during renovations). "I know that first-hand. Its something that we havent done in a long time, to win in Vancouver. Thats a good feeling." Reilly completed 22 of 35 passes for 229 yards as the Eskimos overcame an early 14-0 deficit. It was only his fifth win as Edmontons starter. He helped new coach Chris Jones earn a win in his first CFL game as a head coach after making defensive co-ordinator stints with three other clubs. Calvin McCarty, Fred Stamps and Adarius Bowman caught Reillys touchdown passes. McCarty also enabled the Eskimos to complete a fake field goal in the third quarter, leading to the touchdown that put them ahead to stay. The Eskimos also pulled off a successful onside kick early in the fourth quarter that kept their offence on the field longer. Grant Shaw provided their other points in the form of three converts and a pair of field goals. "Everybody chipped in," said Reilly. "Special teams got us a few extra possessions. Defence got the ball a lot, created a lot of turnovers, and offensively we were able to get some points. So (it was an) all-around team effort, but we know weve got to get better to reach our goal." The Eskimos are looking to become a championship contender by reversing a 4-14 season in 2013 that was their worst in 50 years. The Lions are looking to make amends for a first-round playoff loss to Saskatchewan. Lions quarterback Kevin Glenn got off to a strong start in his regular-season debut, completing two touchdown passes in the first quarter. But Glenn, who is replacing injured starter Travis Lulay (shoulder), was undone by four interceptions. "I didnt play a good game," said Glenn. "We turned the ball over, I turned the ball over, and thats something we cant do and expect to win." Glenn completed 10 of 13 passes in the first half, but finished a modest 18 for 28 passing for 251 yards. Andrew Harris and D-Tre Player scored touchdowns for B.C., while Paul McCallum added two field goals. "We just didnt keep the momentum going,&quoot; said Glenn. Roger Craig Youth Jersey. "We turned the ball over in the second half." The Lions first TD, a 55-yard pass-and-run play, came 1:58 into the game. Shortly after catching a pass near the Edmonton 40-yard line, Harris easily shook off rookie linebacker Dexter McCoils tackle attempt, eluded a couple of other Eskimos and ran the ball along the sidelines into the end zone. It was only Glenns third pass of the regular season. Player, a rookie offensive lineman playing his first-ever CFL regular-season game, scored B.C.s second touchdown while playing out of position late in the first quarter. After lining up as a tight end and being left wide open, he caught a two-yard pass from Glenn. But thanks to Shaws two field goals in the second quarter, the Eskimos only trailed 17-14 at half-time. In the third quarter, Aaron Grymes intercepted Glenns pass intended for Shawn Gore deep in the end zone and then McCoils pick-off sparked the decisive drive that was aided by the successful fake field-goal. In crouch position, holder Matt Nichols, Edmontons backup quarterback, flipped a three-yard pass to McCarty, who helped the Eskimos convert a short-yardage situation. The trickery led to Reillys 17-yard pass to a wide-open Stamps in the corner of the B.C. end zone that, combined with Shaws convert on the final play of the third quarter, gave the Eskimos their first lead of the game, 20-17, and put them ahead to stay with 15 minutes remaining. McCarty, who grew up in nearby New Westminster, B.C., could not remember the last time he completed a fake field goal. "I dont think Ive run one since Ive been here," said McCarty, who is in the eighth year with the Eskimos. After Stamps touchdown, Pat Watkins recovered Edmontons onside kick. The Eskimos did not score on the ensuring offensive sequence. But on their next drive, Bowman hauled in a 35-yard touchdown pass. Edmonton then ended B.C.s victory hopes with back-to-back sacks by Almondo Sewell, which forced a punt, and an interception and forced fumble, both by Eric Samuels, that snuffed the hosts late comeback hopes. "Its a big win for us and a good way to start the season," said McCarty. Notes: A moment of silence was held before the game for the three RCMP officers slain in New Brunswick earlier this month. … Former B.C. centre Angus Reid, who retired after a back injury kept him out of the entire 2013 season, conducted the coin toss. … Lions DB Dante Marsh played his 170th CFL career regular-season game. He has spent his entire career with B.C. … The Lions have 19 new players, including 14 first-year CFLers and five veterans. … After Harris scored the games first touchdown, the public address announcer saluted former Vancouver Canuck Gino Odjick, who is suffering from a terminal disease that affects his heart. The crowd chanted "Gino! Gino!" in tribute. ' ' '
