Baseball Slugger Manny Ramirez Turns Cricket Batsman In Support of DIRECTVs CricketTicket™ Service; Hits Five of Eight Pitches in Cricket Debut DIRECTV to Deliver All International Cricket Council (ICC) and Indian Premier League (IPL) Cricket Events Exclusively in the US Through 2011 GILBERT, Ariz., March 18, 2009 Baseball superstar Manny Ramirez has faced baseballs toughest pitchers, but today he encountered a challenge of a different kind at Nichols Park in Gilbert, Ariz., home to the Arizona Cricket Club. Ramirez was swinging at googlies and grubbers instead of split-finger fast balls in his debut as a cricket batsman to promote DIRECTVs exclusive CricketTicket™ Service. The great slugger hit five of eight pitches from the bowler, including a rocket shot that dispersed a crowd standing behind the bowler. I have faced some tough pitchers before, but we dont have to ever swing at a bouncing ball that is rising as it passes us, said Ramirez, who was coached at the event by Australian cricketer Shaun Marsh. Shaun is a great hitter and he gave me some great pointers. I hadnt watched much cricket in the past, but the game is a lot like baseball. Shaun said I definitely have a future in the game. Marsh, just 25, is one of the finest young batsmen in Australia and has played for such fabled clubs as Kings XI Punjab and Western Australia. An Australia A representative, Marsh made his first-class debut in 2000-01, and was also part of the Australia Under-19 squad that won the …

Cricket Bangladesh vs New Zealand cricket match 2010- 1st ODI at Mirpur last 3 overs final over Cricket Bangladesh vs NZ 1st ODI Oct 5, 2010 Highlights wickets Post session fair use policy maintained New Zealand in Bangladesh ODI Series – 1st ODI Bangladesh v New Zealand Bangladesh won by 9 runs (D/L method) * ODI no. 3051 | 2010/11 season * Played at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur * 5 October 2010 (50-over match) Bangladesh rode on an outstanding all-round performance from Shakib Al Hasan to beat New Zealand by nine runs in Mirpur, making Daniel Vettori’s pre-match comments about his ability seem almost clairvoyant. Shakib was scintillating with the bat in the latter part of Bangladesh’s innings, unleashing a range of shots in the batting Powerplay to lift Bangladesh to a competitive 229. He then tormented the visitors with the ball, scalping four invaluable wickets including a double-strike in the 15th over to remove the rampant Brendon McCullum and Grant Elliott. He then returned to bowl a brilliant penultimate over in the rain-curtailed run chase, giving away just three runs and claiming the wicket of Nathan McCullum to give his side an unexpected 1-0 lead in the five-match series. Bangladesh’s hopes of defending the smallish total suffered a huge dent when they lost their captain and strike bowler, Mashrafe Mortaza, to a sprained ankle after bowling just one over. The blow left the inexperienced Nazmul Hossain and the hosts’ spinners to step up considerably …

Made this for some friends who needed help on this move. Trial and Error: Q: I can’t pump. A: Master the handglide(table) freeze. That’s how you get more balance and more balance = better execution. Q: How do you pump correctly? A: Like in the video, I said to slightly extend your arm and push AGAINST the floor. Use your offhand to keep balance and help push off too. Tips: Keep rotating your hand as you cricket towards your direction that you’re going. (for CCW, turn your left hand). Swing your hips up to help pumping.

But as Andy Richardson reports converting China to cricket will not be easy.
