PRETORIA (Reuters) – Young South African seamer Lungi Ngidi took his first Test wicket but India captain Virat Kohli led the resistance for the tourists as they reached 183 for five at the close of day two of the second test in Pretoria on Sunday.India trail South Africa by 152 runs having bowled their hosts out for 335 just before lunch on a slow wicket that has bounce, but little lateral movement.Kohli will resume his innings on 85 not out along with all-rounder Hardik Pandya (11 not out) as the pair seek to eke out a first innings lead in the knowledge that batting last on a wicket already showing variable bounce will be a challenge.India have tried to be positive with the bat, but have lost wickets at regular intervals, with the top seven so far failing to provide support for Kohli.The openers took the score to 28 before losing their first wicket when Lokesh Rahul (10) was caught and bowled by Morne Morkel, misjudging a delivery that held up on the surface.They lost another wicket on the next ball when new batsman Cheteshwar Pujara took on the arm of Ngidi at mid-on and lost, run out by a direct hit.Murali Vijay (46) added 79 for the third wicket with his captain before he edged spinner Keshav Maharaj (1-53) to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.Rohit Sharma (10) was trapped leg before wicket by the world’s leading test bowler Kagiso Rabada (1-33), before Ngidi (1-26) delighted the home crowd with his first test wicket – Parthiv Patel (19) edging to De Kock.Kohli has played a superb innings in trying to hold the India effort together, scoring at a brisk pace as well with his 85 coming off 130 deliveries.India had earlier taken the final four South African wickets in their innings for 66 runs in the morning session.Home captain Faf du Plessis struck a well-compiled 63 before he was bowled by Ishant Sharma (3-46), but the pick of the tourists’ attack was spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who claimed 4-113 and also had three catches dropped off his bowling.Mohammed Shami became the seventh Indian fast bowler to 100 test wickets when he had Maharaj caught by Patel, the third quickest to reach that mark in his 29th test after Kapil Dev (25 tests) and Irfan Pathan (28).South Africa lead the three-Test series 1-0 after a 72-run victory in Cape Town in the opening fixture.  …………………………………………………… INDIA  1st innings Murali Vijay       c Quinton de Kock b Keshav Maharaj     46 Lokesh Rahul       c&b Morne Morkel                       10 Cheteshwar Pujara  Run Out Lungi Ngidi                     0 Virat Kohli        Not Out                                85 Rohit Sharma       lbw Kagiso Rabada                      10 Parthiv Patel      c Quinton de Kock b Lungi Ngidi        19 Hardik Pandya      Not Out                                11 Extras             0b 1lb 0nb 0pen 1w                      2 Total              (61.0 overs)                        183-5Fall of Wickets : 1-28 Rahul, 2-28 Pujara, 3-107 Vijay, 4-132 Sharma, 5-164 PatelTo Bat : Ashwin, Shami, Bumrah, Sharma SOUTH AFRICA  1st innings Dean Elgar        c Murali Vijay b Ravichandran Ashwin            31 Aiden Markram     c Parthiv Patel b Ravichandran Ashwin           94 Hashim Amla       Run Out Hardik Pandya                           82 AB de Villiers    b Ishant Sharma                                 20 Faf du Plessis    b Ishant Sharma                                 63 Quinton de Kock   c Virat Kohli b Ravichandran Ashwin              0 Vernon Philander  Run Out Parthiv Patel                            0 Keshav Maharaj    c Parthiv Patel b Mohammed Shami                18 Kagiso Rabada     c Hardik Pandya b Ishant Sharma                 11 Morne Morkel      c Murali Vijay b Ravichandran Ashwin             6 Lungi Ngidi       Not Out                                          1 Extras            0b 8lb 1nb 0pen 0w                               9 Total             (113.5 overs)                          335 all outFall of Wickets : 1-85 Elgar, 2-148 Markram, 3-199 de Villiers, 4-246 Amla, 5-250 de Kock, 6-251 Philander, 7-282 Maharaj, 8-324 Rabada, 9-333 du Plessis, 10-335 Morkellast_img read more

Heisler: Blake Griffin at the crossroads between fame and infamy

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error It’s a long season and it’ll be longer by the time Griffin is back with Rivers trying to make sure Chris Paul isn’t a grease spot and they aren’t No. 9 in the West by then.With Paul Pierce resting Friday, Lance Stephenson, who had played 28 minutes since Jan. 2, became Luc Richard Mbah a Moute’s backup at power forward.Stephenson scored 16 points as the no-name Clipper reserves outscored the Lakers’ bench, 56-25.“When we get Blake back and healthy, I’m really comfortable with that team,” said Rivers.“Because of what we’ve gone through, we obviously can play small. We clearly have established we can play two different ways and I think that reads out for me as a coach great later.“The problem is can we get to that point, how far we can go just playing that way.“We don’t know the answer to that.”Griffin has yet to do anything more than apologize on Twitter, and may not until the team and the NBA decide how long to suspend him.This isn’t his first incident. Las Vegas prosecutors dropped a charge of misdemeanor assault when witnesses contradicted the complaint by a fan, who had snapped a picture of him that Griffin, grabbed him by the neck and took his cellphone.There aren’t conflicting versions this time. Serious as it is, it puts Griffin at the crossroads of a heretofore sparkling career.There’s a relatively short list of NBA stars who incapacitated themselves with more infamy than fame on it.Leaving out on-court fights in the heat of the battle, traffic accidents and instances of substance abuse:• Gilbert Arenas, Wizards — Suspended for the last three months of the 2009-10 season for a dressing-room argument with teammate Javaris Crittenton with both in possession of pistols which were illegal in Washington D.C..Arenas was allowed to keep playing until he pretended to shoot teammates who dropped to the floor in pregame introductions a few nights later in Philadelphia.• Latrell Sprewell, Warriors — Suspended 68 games for choking Coach P.J. Carlesimo.• Dennis Rodman, Bulls — Suspended six games for head-butting referee Ted Earnhardt and 11 for kicking a cameraman on the baseline in the groin.• Stephen Jackson, Pacers — Suspended seven games for breaking up a fight outside a club by firing his pistol in the air.• Cedric Ceballos, Lakers — Suspended one game for going AWOL on a houseboat on Lake Havasu in the 1995-96 season.• Nick van Exel, Lakers — Suspended 11 games in 1995-96 for pushing referee Ronnie Garretson.• Lionel Simmons, Kings — Missed two games in his rookie season with a sprained wrist from playing video games.• Kwame Brown, Lakers — Hit a fan he met on the street in El Segundo with his own birthday cake.Of course, Brown didn’t mean to do it. Teammate Rony Turiaf said Kwame was trying to hit him with the cake.Kwame was already out with a sprained ankle so this really belongs under “Zany rehabs,” along with Andrew Bynum carrying a Playmate on his shoulders while out with a knee injury.• Donald T. Sterling, Clippers — Banned for life for racist statements taped by his girl friend, V. Stiviano.If Griffin is sure to be suspended, it remains to be seen by whom and for how long.With Commissioner Adam Silver involved — “The league takes the lead,” noted Rivers — the Clippers can’t let Blake off with a slap on the wrist.Griffin can only hope to play in the postseason to begin trying to make this right. Until then his gritty teammates are on their own.Mark Heisler has written an NBA column since 1991 and was honored with the Naismith Hall of Fame’s Curt Gowdy Award in 2006. His column is published Sundays in Los Angeles News Group print editions. It’s like that old joke: Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?Aside from that, Doc, how did you like the road trip?The Clippers went 3-2 on that trip before beating the Lakers in Staples Center on Friday, making them 14-3 without Blake Griffin.Tell them what they won: Two more months or so without Griffin who broke his hand punching assistant equipment manager Matias Testi who, like Turtle in “Entourage,” barely comes up to Blake’s shoulder.center_img “He feels awful,” said Coach Doc Rivers of Griffin, circling the wagons before Friday’s game.“You’ve got to forgive people sometime. I believe that. We built Richard Nixon a library.”Otherwise, Rivers fell back on NBA Extentialism — “It is what it is” — ascoaches do when there’s nothing they can or want to say.What it is, of course, is devastating, even if the Clippers have yet to be devastated.last_img read more

Officer who shot Rayshard Brooks charged with felony murder

first_imgFulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said that his office was filing charges against the two police officers involved in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.Garrett Rolfe, who was fired from the Atlanta Police Department following the shooting, has been charged with felony murder, four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and several violations of his oath of office. Officer Devin Brosnan has been charged with aggravated assault and several violations of his oath of office.Surveillance video and footage from police body and dashboard cameras show the encounter the officers had with Brooks at  a Wendy’s restaurant on Friday.In the video, the officers approach Brooks who was asleep in his car, and after a brief discussion, Brooks was submitted to a field sobriety test, which he failed.Brooks offered to lock his parked car and walk home, but police informed him he would be taken into custody. After a struggle Brooks grabbed Brosnan’s stun gun and tried to flee the scene. Rolfe shot Brooks in the back when Brooks pointed the stun gun in his direction.Brooks later died in surgery at a local hospital.Howard said that Brooks’ demeanor during a 41-minute discussion — Howard described him as “jovial” — played a part in his office’s decision to charge the officers.“Mr. Brooks never presented himself as a threat,” Howard said.Howard also noted that Brooks was never informed that he was under arrest, and he was “grabbed from behind” by officers before a struggle ensued.While describing his office’s decision, Howard also noted that the officers failed to apply medical attention to Brooks for more than two minutes after shooting him. He added that Rolfe kicked Brooks, and Brosnan stood on Brooks’ shoulder.“The officers’ actions did not reflect fear toward Brooks,” Howard said.Howard said Brosnan admitted to standing on Brooks as part of his cooperation as a state’s witness in the case against Rolfe.Howard recommended Brosnan be released on $50,000 bond upon his arrest. He also recommended no bond for Rolfe.The shooting sparked new demonstrations in Georgia’s capital against police brutality, after occasionally turbulent protests in response to George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis had largely simmered down.last_img read more
