    导出博客文章2 Number of times batsmen at No. 6 or lower have faced more balls in a Test
    innings against Australia than Dinesh Chandimals 356 in his innings of 132. Faf
    du Plessis had faced 376 balls in the Adelaide Test in 2012-13. The only other
    instance came in the 1938 Ashes at the Oval when Joe Hardstaff (jnr) faced
    exactly 400 balls in Englands first innings at the Oval.3 Number of centuries
    Chandimal has hit at No. 6 when he has come in to bat with Sri Lanka four down
    for less than 100 runs. Before this innings, he had hit 162 in Sri Lankas second
    innings in Galle last year. He had joined Angelo Mathews at the crease with Sri
    Lanka struggling at 92 for 4 facing a first-innings deficit of 192 runs. Before
    that innings, he had made 102 against Bangladesh in 2012-13 with Sri Lanka
    having lost four wickets on 69. Apart from these three hundreds, he has made two
    fifties in such situations and has scored 635 runs at 79.37 in nine such
    innings.2 Number of Test innings by Sri Lanka batsmen against Australia that
    have been longer than Chandimals 356-ball effort. Asanka Gurusinha had faced 399
    balls for his 137 at the SSC in 1992, and Aravinda de Silva had faced 361
    deliveries in Sri Lankas first innings at the Gabba in 1989-90. Chandimals
    478-minutes innings is also the third-longest in terms of minutes batted, after
    Gurusinhas 525-minute and de Silvas 491-minute efforts in the aforementioned
    matches.1 Number of sixth-wicket stands in Tests for Sri Lanka than have been
    bigger than the 211-run partnership in this Test. Mahela Jayawardene and
    Prasanna Jayawardene had added 351 in Ahmedabad in 2009-10. This was only the
    third double-hundred stand for Sri Lankas sixth wicket in Tests. This is also
    the second 200-plus run stand for Sri Lanka against Australia for any wicket.
    Before this, Asanka Gurusinha and Arjuna Ranatunga had added 230 runs for the
    fourth wicket in 1992 at the same venue.80 Innings taken by Steven Smith to hit
    4000 Test runs - which is joint-third for least by an Australia batsman. Neil
    Harvey had also taken 80 innings. Only Don Bradman (48 innings) and Matthew
    Hayden (77 innings) have made 4000 Test runs faster than Smith. However, Smith
    is the youngest Australia batsman to the milestone, at 27 years and 73 days,
    shaving Ricky Pontings record by 265 days.1986 Last time a pair added more runs
    for the sixth wicket in a Test against Australia. Ravi Shastri and Dilip
    Vengsarkar had added an unbeaten 298 in Indias first innings of the Mumbai Test.
    This was only the sixth 200-plus-run stand against Australia in Tests.2 Number
    of 200-run stands for the sixth wicket in Tests in Sri Lanka before this.
    Australias pair of Simon Katich and Justin Langer had added 218 runs at the same
    venue in 2003-04. The only other such stand in Sri Lanka came in 1987 between
    Jeff Crowe and Richard Hadlee, when the pair added an unbeaten 246 runs.1934
    Only previous instance of No. 6 and No. 7 batsmen hitting hundreds in a Test
    innings against Australia. Maurice Leyland and Les Ames had got hundreds at
    Lords in the 1934 Ashes Test on that occasion. Dhananjaya de Silva and Dinesh
    Chandimal are the first Sri Lanka No. 6 and No. 7 to get hundreds in the same
    Test innings. This is also only the second time that two or more Sri Lanka
    batsmen have got hundreds in a Test innings against Australia. Gurusinha,
    Ranatunga and Romesh Kaluwitharana had got hundreds in Sri Lankas first innings
    at the same venue in 1992.1 Number of instances of teams scoring a total higher
    than Sri Lankas 355 after having lost their first five wicket for less than 50
    runs. England had made 446 in their first innings of the Lords Test in 2010
    against Pakistan after having been reduced to 47 for 5.0 Number of pacers who
    had taken three five-wicket hauls in a Test series in Sri Lanka before Mitchell
    Starc. Starcs five-wicket haul in the first innings of this match followed a
    pair of five-wicket hauls in Galle. He has taken 22 wickets at an average of
    13.27 in this series.1999 Last time, before Starc in this series, an Australia
    pacer took three consecutive five-wicket hauls against the same opposition.
    Glenn McGrath had done this against West Indies in three consecutive innings in
    West Indies. Starcs is only the sixth such instance by an Australia fast bowler.
    Overall, he is only the eighth Australia fast bowler to take three or more
    consecutive five-fors in Tests.120 Runs added so far by the partnership between
    Shaun Marsh and Smith - Australias first century stand of this series. This is
    also the first time in 15 innings since 1999 that Australias top three have made
    two or more fifty-plus scores in a Test innings in Sri Lanka. Greg Blewett and
    Michael Slater had got fifties at the same venue on that occasion.

    . Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade
    for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on
    March 16, 2013. ST. LOUIS -- After a strong bounce-back game following two
    sub-par efforts, Jake Allen will be back in goal Wednesday night for the St.
    Louis Blues in a key Central Division game against the Chicago Blackhawks.Allen
    needed to play well in his last game on Sunday night against Colorado after
    allowing a combined nine goals in regulation losses last week on the road
    against the New York Rangers and Dallas Stars.Given a little more breathing room
    when the offense snapped out of its scoring slump with five goals, Allen was
    back to his old form, allowing only one goal -- off a deflection through traffic
    -- in a 5-1 win over the Avalanche.Allen stopped 22 shots and helped keep the
    Avalanche scoreless on six power-play opportunities, the kind of effort the
    Blues expected when they made their number one goalie this year with the
    offseason trade of Brian Elliott to Calgary and signed Allen to a four-year
    contract extension.The win followed an overtime victory over Columbus on
    Saturday night behind backup goalie Carter Hutton and gave the Blues consecutive
    wins for the first time since they opened the season with a three-game winning
    streak.To string together two wins was important for us not just for the points
    but for the morale and momentum and confidence in this group, Allen said.Now the
    Blues will be looking to build on that effort against the Blackhawks, who lead
    the Central Division with three more points than the Blues.The Blues will make
    one lineup change, with Petteri Lindbohm, recalled from Chicago of the American
    Hockey League, replacing defenseman Joel Edmundson, who was played on injured
    reserve on Monday because of an upper-body injury.ddddddddddddThe Blackhawks
    also come into Wednesday nights game as one of the hottest teams in the league,
    having won their last six games, including beating Dallas in overtime in their
    most recent game on Sunday night.Part of their success can be attributed to
    coach Joel Quennevilles decision to put his top two forwards, center Jonathan
    Toews and right winger Patrick Kane, on the same line for the first time since
    the 2009-2010 season.The Blackhawks have gone 6-0 since Toews and Kane were
    reunited. Toews did not have a goal and just two assists in the teams first
    seven games but has four goals and four assists during the winning streak. Kane
    has scored three goals and added five assists since the pair began playing
    together.If our line can set the tone, or create more, have more shifts in their
    end, its going to be good for our team in the long run, Kane told the Chicago
    Sun-Times. It could be a great thing for our team, and one of those things that
    you didnt really expect to happen.Corey Crawford is expected to start in goal
    for the Blackhawks. He has won his last three games, allowing a combined three
    goals. ' ' '
