asnt a mistake. A mistake hap

    导出博客文章Pakistans rise to No. 1 on the Test rankings seems improbable considering two
    years ago - in August 2014 - they had been in sixth place.It was a time when
    Misbah-ul-Haq had found himself surrounded. Up on the Galle Fort was a 40-foot
    tall Mahela Jaywardene, frozen as he was celebrating a hundred. In front of
    Misbah was Rangana Herath, making him spontaneously combust if he even thought
    about such feats.The Pakistan captain ended the tour with a high score of 31 and
    an average of 16.75. Soon, he lost his biggest match-winner, Saeed Ajmal,
    because of an illegal bowling action. And Australia, then the world leaders in
    Tests, were about to visit for a two-match series.Thats when everything started
    to change. Misbah smashed the then joint-fastest Test century. He wasnt Tuk Tuk
    anymore. He was tick, tick, boom! Pakistan found a Lionel Messi lookalike, who
    had magic in his hands instead. They had Younis Khan batting like the crease was
    his home and bowlers were serving cake. They didnt have a home, but suddenly, it
    seemed they had everything else.Humbling AustraliaPakistan gave up 10 wickets in
    an innings only once in two Tests. They had at least two centurions in each of
    the four innings they batted. They averaged over 80 in the series and scored at
    3.5 per over. Poor Australia, they tended to inflict such statistics on their
    oppositions. It hardly ever works out the other way around.Younis finished his
    against-the-world set of scoring a ton against every Test nation. Azhar Ali
    struck twin hundreds in Abu Dhabi. Misbah became the new Viv Richards. Yasir
    Shah, in his debut series, and Zulfiqar Babar, a 35-year old on his comeback,
    had the Australian batsmen melting into a puddle.After 20 years, Pakistan
    finally won a Test series against Australia, whitewashed them 2-0 for good
    measure and leapt up from No. 6 to 3 on the rankings.Continuing dominance in the
    UAEBat first, bat big, tag in scoreboard pressure, sit back and enjoy. That has
    more or less become Pakistan birthright in the United Arab Emirates.In 21 Tests
    in the country since March 2009, only four times have they gone without one of
    their batsmen making a hundred. In the first Test of the New Zealand series in
    November 2014, Younis and Misbah made unbeaten ones. Ahmed Shehzad contributed
    176. While setting up a declaration, Mohammad Hafeez made 101 in 130 balls in
    the second innings. A target of 480 in the final innings was well beyond the
    reach of Brendon McCullums team - They played the perfect Test, he said.In the
    third Test in Sharjah, Pakistan and New Zealand found themselves batting when
    chances of a fatal injury on a cricket field had never looked more real. Phillip
    Hughes had been hit by a bouncer in Sydney and died in hospital, and it affected
    players from both teams deeply. McCullum and Kane Williamson left their emotions
    in the dressing room, hit centuries and batted Pakistan out of the
    game.Redemption in BangladeshPakistan have the worst fitness levels, railed the
    PCB chief. Bangladesh beat them 3-0 in the ODIs and 1-0 in the T20Is. The
    returning Ajmal had lost his sting even if he had straightened his bowling
    action. The ineffectiveness seeped into Misbahs Test side as well; they were
    denied by a world record-opening stand between Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes in
    Khulna.Pakistan went into the second Test with frustration mounting back home.
    There were calls to overhaul the entire team and swap the captain with a rubber
    duckie. Misbah made only 9 in the first innings, but around him, Azhar hit 226,
    Younis smashed 148 and Asad Shafiq 107. The team was learning to get by without
    their captain.Yasir then bowled a legbreak that made the world turn. Once he got
    the first breakthrough, Bangladesh were wrapped up in under 50 overs. Its not a
    face-saving win, Misbah said later. It was a team playing to its devastating
    potential. Taming Sri LankaHerath took 23 wickets at home when Pakistan visited
    in 2014. He was given only two on the next trip, in 2015, with a bowling average
    of 109. Pakistan had taken a hammer to Sri Lankas spearhead, knocked him blunt
    and then out. He did not play in the last Test of the series. A Test that
    decided who would win the trophy. A Test in which Pakistan would play so well
    records leapt out of the book and fell prostrate at their feet.Misbah and his
    batsmen put careful thought into each stroke they played; soft hands against
    spin and clear intent while attacking. Every effort was made to reach the pitch
    of the ball and upset an out-of-form Heraths lengths. The plan was clear, the
    execution perfect. Meanwhile, Yasir ended the series with 24 scalps.And, if that
    wasnt enough, Pakistan amassed 382 for 3 to pull off their highest successful
    chase ever with Younis and Shan Masood making light of a final-day pitch and the
    same scoreboard pressure that they use with such great skill. It was a dream
    win, Misbah said after the game. It was a dream win for the fans too, who too
    often had to watch their team spontaneously collapse at the mere mention of the
    word chase.Troubling England at homeThe first Test in Abu Dhabi followed the
    other trend common in Test matches in the UAE - both teams put up gigantic
    first-innings scores but just as the probability of a draw rises and interest in
    the match drops, the narrative changes on its head. Pakistan were bowled out for
    173 in their second innings, debutant Adil Rashid buried memories of 0 for 163
    with 5 for 64 and handed England a target of 99 in fading light. The hosts just
    about held on.But Alastair Cook, having played Englands longest-ever innings in
    Test cricket, of 836 minutes, had to contend with losing the series as his men
    failed to show the same kind of fight in Sharjah. Hafeez struck 151 to wrench
    back the lead England took and the spinners ripped the heart out of the English
    middle order. A come-from-behind win added to their rise as a force in Test
    cricket.Troubling England awayFour Tests in England, where Pakistans spinners
    were not supposed to be effective, and the conditions and bowlers would test
    their batsmen who had dined out on placid pitches.Instead, Yasir picked up 10
    wickets at Lords. Misbahs first innings on English soil amounted to 114 and 10
    push-ups. Everyone was taken aback by Shafiqs defensive technique and they were
    amused by Younis trampoline footwork until he smacked a double-hundred at The
    Oval to help Pakistan level the series.Misbah walked away with his first
    Man-of-the-Series award. Only a year prior, he had to be convinced not to
    retire. But in the heart of London he said he wanted to go on.Pakistan face West
    Indies in the UAE next and travel to New Zealand in November and Australia
    soonafter for a couple of tough tours. So there may not be much time to rest on
    their laurels. Not least because of the questions over where the team would go
    if Misbah and Younis exit stage left.

    . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes
    fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be
    outlawed. NEW ORLEANS -- Former NFL star Darren Sharper was sentenced Thursday
    to more than 18 years in prison for drugging women in order to rape them --
    double the sentence recommended by prosecutors.One of Sharpers victims -- the
    only one to speak at his sentencing hearing -- rebuffed his display of
    contrition.For the list of people youve done this to: Go to hell, she said. Her
    name was not given in court, and The Associated Press does not identify victims
    of sexual abuse by name.The former New Orleans Saints safety, jailed since
    February 2014, apologized and appeared chastened by his fall from grace.I would
    like to apologize a thousand times, the 40-year-old Sharper said. Later, he
    said, looking down and sighing, Im still trying to figure out why I made some of
    these choices.His voice quivered and choked with emotion when he apologized to
    his parents.U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo, in sentencing Sharper, told
    him she couldnt understand how he did what he did, since he was college educated
    and obviously had grown up in one of the most loving households.We can never
    ignore the damage you inflicted on those women and society at large, she
    said.Sharper had pleaded guilty in federal court in New Orleans to drugging
    three women so he could rape them. He also has pleaded guilty or no contest in
    state courts in Louisiana, Arizona, California and Nevada to charges arising
    from allegations of drugging and raping women.Defense attorney Billy Gibbens
    asked for leniency because Sharpers testimony helped get late guilty pleas from
    two codefendants who will be sentenced in October.Assistant U.S. Attorney
    Michael McMahon told the judge, I dont think Mr. Sharper has really wrapped his
    head around the fact that he is a serial rapist.Meanwhile, the tearful victim
    told Sharper that because of arrogance and clear stupidity, he kept drugging and
    raping women even after he knew she was talking to state and federal
    investigators.Within days ... you gave me ... and the entire judiciall system in
    Louisiana the big middle finger because you thought we werent capable of
    stopping you, she said.dddddddddddd You continued to rape other women in Los
    Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas.She said she understands that people make mistakes.
    But it wasnt a mistake. A mistake happens once and you never make it again.
    Rather, she said, it was a way of life for you and your friends.Prosecutors
    suggested a 9-year prison term for Sharper under a multi-jurisdictional plea
    deal, but Milazzo rejected it in June as too lenient. The sentence she imposed,
    18 years and four months imprisonment, was 15 months short of the maximum.
    Sharper also was fined $20,000. His sentence will run concurrently with any
    state sentence.The judge said he will be on three years supervised release after
    he gets out of prison, including sex treatment conditions and registration as a
    sex offender.Sharper or his friend Brandon Licciardi, a former sheriffs deputy
    in neighboring St. Bernard Parish, put anti-anxiety drugs or sedatives into
    womens drinks so they could rape them, according to a 15-page statement signed
    as part of Sharpers plea agreement.Milazzo has scheduled sentencing Oct. 13 for
    Licciardi and a second New Orleans codefendant, Erik Nunez.Charges around the
    country involve nine victims, but Milazzo has said in court that there may be as
    many as 16.Sharper was named All-Pro six times and chosen for the Pro Bowl five
    times during a career that included stints with the Green Bay Packers and
    Minnesota Vikings. He played in two Super Bowls, one with the Packers as a
    rookie and one with New Orleans Saints when they won in 2010.He ended a 14-year
    career in 2011. He was working as an NFL network analyst when women began
    telling police in several cities similar stories of blacking out while drinking
    with him and waking up groggy to find they had been sexually abused.
