    导出博客文章BOSTON -- Outfielder Rajai Davis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by
    the Toronto Blue Jays because of a strained oblique muscle in his left side.
    Davis was hurt during Fridays 5-0 loss at Boston, and the roster move was made
    Saturday, when Toronto recalled right-hander Chad Jenkins from Double-A New
    Hampshire of the Eastern League. Davis is hitting .284 with one homer and four
    RBIs in 26 games. The 25-year old Jenkins made one start for New Hamphire. He
    was 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the Blue Jays last season.

    barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an
    eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of
    Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in
    contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in
    Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. Afghanistan Cricket Board CEO Shafiq Stanikzai has
    presented an argument in favor of the proposal for two-tier Test cricket, saying
    the side deserves the opportunity to play Tests through their solid performances
    in the ICCs Intercontinental Cup first-class multi-day competition for
    Associates.We think that we are ready to play Test cricket and we have proven
    that, Stanikzai told ESPNcricinfo in a recent interview. Since we entered into
    the Intercontinental Cup arena, we were beaten only once. That was in the [2013]
    Intercontinental Cup final where we got beaten by Ireland but thats the only
    loss we have in a four-day game or multi-day game.Afghanistan are currently in
    second place behind Ireland on the 2015-17 Intercontinental Cup table after four
    rounds, with three wins and a rain-marred draw against Scotland. Afghanistans
    overall record in the first-class competition is outstanding with 14 wins, one
    loss and four draws. Right from their debut in the competition - a high-scoring
    draw in which they claimed first-innings points against a Zimbabwe XI in 2009 -
    they have made an effort to demonstrate their versatility rather than be
    pigeonholed as a limited-overs specialist outfit.Nowhere was that more evident
    than in their victory against a then elite Canada outfit in 2010, who at the
    time were preparing to play their third successive ICC World Cup. Set a target
    of 494 to win in the fourth innings, Afghanistan recorded the ninth-best
    successful chase in first-class cricket history spearheaded by Mohammad Shahzads
    unbeaten 214. That win propelled them to a maiden Intercontinental Cup title
    later that year with a win over Scotland in the final. That victory also broke
    Irelands streak of three successive titles.Overall, Afghanistan have scored 400
    or more in an innings six times and batted for more than 100 overs in an innings
    on 11 occasions in the Intercontinental Cup, showing their versatility. They
    havee also shown adaptability to foreign conditions, notching victories in
    Scotland, Kenya, Canada, Namibia and twice in the Netherlands.ddddddddddddhree
    of Afghanistans last six Intercontinental Cup wins have come by an innings
    margin, while the other three were by margins of ten wickets, eight wickets and
    201 runs. Stanikzai says there is not much more for them to prove against
    Associate-level competition in multi-day cricket and they are eager for a chance
    to show their skills in a Test scenario.We have a real good package for every
    single format of the game, he said. If you have a look at the Afghanistan
    cricket team, we have almost a different squad for every single format. We have
    T20 specialists, we have ODI specialists, we have multi-day players, specialists
    not just in batting but in bowling as well. So we are carrying a different bunch
    of players in every single format we are playing.Stanikzais point is backed up
    by the fact that core players from their limited-overs squad - bowlers Hamid
    Hassan, Shapoor Zadran and Rashid Khan, and batsmen Noor Ali Zadran, Javed
    Ahmadi, Najibullah Zadran and Gulbadin Naib - were all absent from Afghanistans
    starting XI in their most recent Intercontinental Cup win over Netherlands.
    Afghanistan also has a domestic four-day competition since 2014, which features
    teams from five regions, although this has not yet been assigned first-class
    status.It means the talent is huge in Afghanistan and things have shaped up
    quite nicely and we have improved quite rapidly in the cricketing world,
    Stanikzai said. Afghanistan is a team that is ready to play Test cricket. We are
    just looking forward for this [two-tier] proposal to get passed by the ICC
    board. My stance and Afghanistan Cricket Boards stance is quite clear that we
    need more opportunities. ' ' '
