The international season got underway on Thursday, but lovers of the shortest form of the game are also well catered for on Sky Sports this summer, because the NatWest T20 Blast starts on Friday night. The tournament is set to play out in front of packed crowds with ticket sales up a third on last year, as fans eagerly book in advance to make sure they can watch some of the biggest names in world cricket.And Englands vibrant performances at the World T20 in India, where they reached the final before losing a thriller to West Indies, have really whetted the appetite for this years Blast. Six matches get the tournament going on Thursday night and the Sky Sports 2 cameras will be at Chelmsford to watch Essex Eagles take on Surrey under the floodlights.Essex are looking to reach finals day (Edgbaston, August 20) for the first time since 2013 and they have a squad packed with quality T20 performers.Former England man Ravi Bopara has taken over as one-day skipper and he will be joined in the side by other crowd pleasers such as Jesse Ryder, Ryan ten Doeschate, Graham Napier and experienced wicket-keeper James Foster. The T20 Blast is back this Friday as the Essex Eagles takes on Surrey, live on Sky Sports 2 from 7pm Most intriguingly of all, top-notch Pakistan international paceman Wahab Riaz is set to make his debut for the Eagles, having previously played for Kent and Surrey.Essex may also give a debut to another Pakistani in the shape of Ashar Zaidi, an all-rounder who was player of the tournament in the 2015 Bangladesh Premier League.However, the Eagles will have their work cut out on Friday against a Surrey side who can name one of the greatest batsmen of all time in their T20 squad. Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara is a prolific run scorer in all formats Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara has been in prolific form in the County Championship this summer but is also an excellent white ball performer, winning the man-of-the-match award in the World T20 final of 2014 after making an unbeaten half-century to steer his country to glory.Big-hitting Jason Roy played some superb innings for England in this years World T20 and is also a reliable source of runs at the top of the Surrey order.The duo will be key figures in a side which could also include Steven Davies, Azhar Mahmood and a pair of hugely exciting prospects in the shape of the Curran brothers, Sam and Tom. Big-hitting Chris Gayle was a big hit at Somerset last summer! Once the Indian Premier League has finished, some of the games biggest hitters will be heading around the other counties, headed by master blaster Chris Gayle, who will be back for a second spell with Somerset.The West Indian smashed 29 sixes in the tournament last year and several of Somersets home games have already sold out, with punters eager to watch Gayle - and the Sri Lankan great Mahela Jaywardene.Other household names who will be in action at various times during the Blast will be Brendon McCullum (Middlesex), Shahid Afridi and Darren Sammy (both Hampshire), Ross Taylor (Sussex) and Dale Steyn (Glamorgan). Lancashire ran out deserved winners of the Blast in 2015 Top-class New Zealand opener Martin Guptill will be at Lancashire Lightning, and it is easy to argue that last years winners go into the tournament as the team to beat once again.Guptil will be joined in the batting line-up by Englands Jos Buttler, one of the most destructive T20 players on the planet on his day, and the Lightning also have an array of spinners well-versed in keeping things tight under pressure.Dont miss Essex Eagles v Surrey in the T20 Blast, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 7pm on Friday.

Price also posted the longest shutout sequence since 1960 at 164:19 minutes. He stopped a combined 55 shots in Canadas final two games and 70 of 71 shots in Canadas three elimination games, allowing only a breakaway goal to Lauris Darzins of Latvia. For his efforts, Price was named best goalkeeper by the tournament directorate. Prices outstanding play is marred only by the extremely strong defensive play of Canadas top six defencemen; Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester.

Now hes put the offence in Lindleys hands in the biggest game of the Cardinals season.The third-year quarterback, who made four unimpressive starts as a rookie, will be thrown into the teeth of the fierce Seattle defence Sunday night.Its a tough spot for someone who never took a snap as Arizonas No. 3 quarterback last year, then was released in favour of rookie Logan Thomas at the end of this preseason.When Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending knee injury, the Cardinals signed Lindley off the San Diego practice squad. And when Palmers replacement, Drew Stanton, sprained his right knee Thursday night in St. Louis, Arians turned to Lindley rather than Thomas to finish the game.He was calm as a cucumber out there, Arians said before Wednesdays practice.The stakes on Sunday night are high.Arizona (11-3) is the only NFC team to have clinched a spot in the playoffs. A victory over the Seahawks (10-4) would ensure the NFCs No. 1 seed, guaranteeing that the Cardinals would play at home throughout the playoffs, including the Super Bowl, since its being played in Arizona.A Seattle victory would give the reigning Super Bowl champs a tie for first in the NFC West, and they would have the tiebreaker by virtue of two wins over the Cardinals. Arizona probably would be relegated to a wild card berth and a road game in the first round.Largely because the Cardinals are down to a third-string, maybe fourth-string, quarterback, oddsmakers have made Seattle an eight-point favourite on the road.I think its all about money in Vegas, Lindley said. Theyre just dealing with facts. They arent worrying about the people and the intangibles.Arizona drafted Lindley in the sixth round out of San Diego State in 2012. With the Cardinals season circling the drain, then-coach Ken Whisenhunt made the rookie the starter with the team in the midst of losing 11 of its last 12 games.The results werent good. Lindley completed 52 per cent of his passes for 752 yards and zero touchdowns. He was intercepted seven times. His 181 passes attempted ? including 10 last week ? are the most in NFL histoory without a touchdown.ddddddddddddBut this is a far better team than the one two years ago, and Lindley insists hes a different quarterback.Its night and day, he said. The amount Ive learned and not only grown as a person in two years, but from these guys ? B.A. (Arians), from Carson, from Drew. Im a totally different person and totally different player from that point.He said the biggest difference between now and then is knowing whats coming.Obviously the first time out there before, its new, and you dont know exactly whats going to happen, Lindley said. But now, through experience, through seeing how these guys Drew and Carson prepare, how Philip (Rivers) prepares out in San Diego, I just feel a lot more ready at this point.Lindley said its 50-50 as to whether his playing time in 2012 did more harm than good.The biggest thing is if you dont let it affect your confidence too much, he said, anythings a learning experience.He said he got through it with the support of his family and his faith.Its just trusting in whatever the plan will be, Lindley said. Just waiting for this opportunity. I feel extremely blessed and excited that its here.Arians dismisses the term game manager. He said the Cardinals wont scale back their style just because of the quarterback. He has, however, tailored a game plan to Lindleys skills.There are some things in the offence he likes to throw, Arians said. Each guys got two or three things that they like a little bit more than the others.Asked where Lindley concerns him, Arians responded, He really doesnt.Hes a meticulous preparation guy, the coach said. The dynamics between us ? Ive bounced things off him. I trust him as far as his mental makeup to the game.To keep the Seahawks guessing, Arians has developed a package for Thomas and says he might use both quarterbacks.But its Lindley at centre stage, with the support of a coach whose former pupils include Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger.Its tough to find at this level, a guy that you want to pour it onto the field for, Lindley said, and B.A. gets his guys to play their best for him.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.orgm and Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
