  • 08 May
    导出博客文章India A 7 for 234 (Pandey 100*, Adams 2-16) beat South Africa A 8 for 230
    (Miller 90, Adams 52, Kulkarni 4-37) by 3 wicketsScorecardManish Pandey stroked
    his way to a nerveless, unbeaten 100 off 105 balls to help India A ace a tight
    chase of 231 against South Africa A in Townsville. Pandey, who is the India A
    captain, hit nine fours and a six to guide his team home with eight balls to
    spare even as wickets fell around him at regular intervals.India A elected to
    field and reduced South Africa A to 3 for 35, as Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat
    and Hardik Pandya each got an early wicket. Theunis de Bruyn did his best to
    steady proceedings with 40 off 61, but his departure in the 23rd over left South
    Africa A 4 for 88.David Miller (90 off 104) and Qaasim Adams (52 off 55),
    batting at Nos. 5 and 6, restored the innings with brisk fifties in a
    fifth-wicket stand of 110 off 115. However, Adams was dismissed in the 42nd
    over, Miller followed in the 44th, and the innings petered out towards the end,
    with the last six overs yielding just 24 runs. Kulkarni was the standout bowler,
    with figures of 4 for 37 off his ten.Set 231 to win, India A started with a
    decent opening stand of 41 between Faiz Fazal and Karun Nair. Both were
    dismissed by Andile Phehlukwayo in the tenth over, and Mandeep Singh departed
    five overs later for 14. As his team-mates continued to squander starts, Pandey
    kept the score ticking along. Kulkarni, at No. 9, chipped in with a cameo of 23*
    off 26, featuring two fours and a six, to impart useful impetus to the closing
    stages of the chase.Fittingly, though, it was Pandey who hit the winning runs
    with a four that brought up his century and gave India A their first success in
    the Quadrangular A-team series. Old Skool

    But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling
    it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce

    finally picked up the sort of victory that should ease some of the heat on the
    Vanderbilt coach.Just the opposite for Georgias Kirby Smart, who is facing
    plenty of scrutiny after a stunning loss to the Commodores.Sickening, Smart
    said.Vanderbilt claimed its first Southeastern Conference road win in Masons
    three seasons as coach, upsetting Georgia 17-16 on Khari Blasingames 2-yard
    touchdown run in the fourth quarter and a huge fourth-down stop late in the game
    Saturday.The victory set off a wild celebration as the Vanderbilt players raced
    over to Sanford Stadiums famous hedges to celebrate with a small group of
    black-and-gold-clad fans.I told our young men this morning that if we wanted to
    do something epic, we needed to make sure we took the fight to them, Mason
    said.For Vanderbilt (3-4, 1-3), it was only the third win over Georgia in the
    last 22 meetings between the SEC East rivals. Mason had dropped his first nine
    league road games.You saw a football team committed to doing one thing, and
    thats going on the road and getting a win, Mason said. We also talked about a
    new season, the second half of the season. We cant do anything about whats
    behind us, but we could do something about what is in front of us.The Bulldogs
    (4-3, 2/3 SEC) held a commanding lead in total yards, 421-171, but special-teams
    blunders doomed the home team. Not exactly what Georgia was expecting when it
    fired longtime coach Mark Richt and brought in Smart , who had been Nick Sabans
    defensive coordinator at Alabama.Its embarrassing, and Im sick to my stomach,
    Smart said. I take full responsibility for it.Georgia went ahead for the first
    time early in the third quarter on Jacob Easons 17-yard touchdown pass to Isaac
    Nauta. The Bulldogs added their third field goal, stretching the lead to 16-10
    with just under 14 minutes remaining.But Vanderbilt responded with its only
    extended drive of the game, going 75 yards on eight plays to reclaim the lead
    when Blasingame powered over with 9:43 to go. The big play was a screen pass on
    third-and-12 that Ralph Webb took for a 37-yard gain to the Bulldogs 11.It wasnt
    pretty, Vandy quarterback Kyle Shurmur, but that just isnt our style, I
    guess.Georgias final drive was extended by Easons 23-yard pass to Terry Godwin
    on fourth-and-13, but the Bulldogs couldnt convert wheen facing fourth-and-1 at
    the Vandy 41.dddddddddddd In a puzzling move, the Bulldogs didnt go with either
    of their star runners -- Nick Chubb and Sony Michel -- and instead pitched the
    ball to receiver Isaiah McKenzie after he dropped back into the tailback
    position.McKenzie was thrown down about a foot shy of the first-down marker by
    Vandy linebacker Zach Cunningham, who finished with a staggering 19 tackles.We
    felt good about the play, McKenzie said. A guy came from the blind side and
    tackled me. He made a good play.THE TAKEAWAYVanderbilt: The victory will take
    some of the heat off Mason, but the Commodores have yet to address their anemic
    offense. Other than one impressive drive, they barely moved the ball against
    Georgia.Georgia: The offensive play-calling will surely come under scrutiny
    after the Bulldogs rushed for only 75 yards against Vanderbilt and didnt turn to
    their top runners when the game was on the line.SPECIAL TEAMSVanderbilts first
    10 points were set up by special teams.Darius Sims returned the opening kickoff
    95 yards, setting up Webbs 1-yard TD run that gave the Commodores a 7-0 lead
    just 22 seconds into the game. On the second-half kickoff, Georgias Reggie Davis
    made the catch along the sideline and inadvertently stepped out of the bounds at
    the 3. The Bulldogs went three-and-out, Kalija Lipscomb returned the punt 17
    yards and Vandy didnt even need to make a first down to set up Tommy Openshaws
    38-yard field goal.Smart called it a comedy of errors.BOUNCING BACK.Eason threw
    for a career-high 346 yards on 27-of-40 passing, just six days after the
    freshman turned in a 29-yard performance against South Carolina that was
    Georgias fewest passing yards in a game since 1990.UP NEXTVanderbilt: The
    Commodores return home next Saturday to face Tennessee State. It will be only
    the second home game in six weeks for Vanderbilt.Georgia: After the off week,
    the Bulldogs return to action Oct. 29 against Florida in the annual Cocktail
    Party showdown at Jacksonville, Florida.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at
