There is a great anecdote Dion Nash tells. It opens in Ahmedabad - could be any town in India, but the dry state of Gujarat adds to the story. India are about 400 for 2, Daniel Vettori runs in to bowl, and Rahul Dravid pulls out. He had seen a butterfly land in the middle of the pitch. The tired New Zealand fielders wonder whats happening.Adam Parore has had enough of the Indian batsmen piling on the runs, the Indian spinners taking the wickets, his own team-mates not having any fun. He rushes across and takes a swipe at the butterfly prompting Dravid to say, and Nash mimics the Indian accent, Oh Parore, he has kicked the butterfly. Thats very bad luck for you guys.India have been winning home Tests regularly but this kind of helplessness, of being ground down in the heat and the dust, has not been experienced by touring sides for a while.The first two days of the Indore Test were a return to the old norm. A Sunday crowd of more than 22,000 enjoyed the Indian batsmen turn their circumspect efforts on day one into gradual domination.A score of 557 for 5 declared does point to the wearing down of visiting sides theme, but there was no swiping at butterflies. On a slow pitch that didnt suit them, New Zealand made India work hard for their runs. In response, India showed the patience required to rack them up. Ajinkya Rahane was tested thoroughly by bouncers. They rarely came at him at the pace he expected. Virat Kohli was made to cut out a lot of his flash. Both mens application, determination and then the strokeplay put together Indias highest fourth-wicket partnership.There is a special joy to a long partnership. To see each other through tough periods, to feed off the other batsmans fluency when you are struggling, to be there to take the heat off when his concentration breaks, to congratulate each other on the milestones, to gradually increase the pace, to then start thinking of the declaration.The scoreboard after Kohli and Rahane added 365 looks one-sided, but it has been hard-fought Test cricket. There was a bit of mutual admiration from both sides. Rahane said scoring a hundred despite his struggle, especially against the short ball, was what real Test cricket was. New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said Indias response blunted all their plans.High-quality batting, Hesson said. Took a good delivery to create half-chances, went through long periods of play where we reeled out a lot of plans, stuck to our game well but we were worn down. Kohli killed us softly is the nicest way of describing it, after scoring about 120 singles.Kohli took 115 singles and hit only 20 fours in his 211. Yet he managed a strike-rate of 57.65. Rahane was flashier at times, but he was tied down for long periods too. It was tough for New Zealand to bowl in hot and humid conditions; it wasnt easy to play such a physical game for the batsmen either.Today, it was slightly difficult. [It was] hot and humid out there, Rahane said. So we just wanted to have fun between the overs. We didnt discuss too much about cricket, but yes, yesterday we were talking about how we can approach our innings, and that partnership was really crucial for us. Today, we both decided that after our hundreds, we wanted to dominate the spinners. Because it was really hot and humid, so we wanted their fast bowlers to bowl at us so that we could get more runs.New Zealands quicks were asked to bowl 67 overs between them, plus the 18 from James Neesham. They managed only two wickets, but they never looked like not wanting to be there. Even when Rohit Sharma was batting for the declaration, Trent Boult nearly added to his highlight reel of sensational catches. Matt Henry was wicketless, rarely did he bowl a bad ball.A tough day but, sounds funny, also a satisfying day in terms of the standards we set, Hesson said. Our seam bowlers delivering 30 overs, 135-140 kph at times, in the heat and humidity. At no stage did we roll over and give soft runs. I thought it was a high quality days Test cricket. We contributed to that with our bowling. When you go over a 100 overs without a wicket, it can be demoralising. If youre not strong-willed and keep fighting, it can be tough. But we did that pretty well.A totally worn-out side that was ready to swipe at butterflies might have bowled poorly and been asked to start its survival quest much earlier than New Zealand did, with nine overs to go on day two. If India had not learnt and implemented their lessons in patience, there might have been another middling total.Instead, the weekend crowd enjoyed the home side piling on the runs, and we still have a potentially memorable Test in store. If India win it, we will see some excellent bowling; if New Zealand save it, there will be some monumental resistance. Air Max 90 Essential Bleu .

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The attorney for a former North Carolina womens basketball academic counselor and faculty member who is accused of wrongdoing by the NCAA is pushing back against the charge -- and the investigative process itself.Randall Roden, who represents Jan Boxill, filed a 54-page response this week to an NCAA charge that she provided improper academic assistance to athletes. That was one of five charges against UNC tied to its long-running academic fraud scandal, though Rodens response included a letter to the NCAA complaining of an impossibly burdensome and fundamentally unfair process for gathering and reviewing evidence in the case.Namely, the response states, Boxill has consistently been denied access to the database of her own emails at the center of the charges.They just showed her (emails) that nobody could possibly remember -- it was 10 years old -- and she says, `I dont know, it could be this, it might be that, Roden said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press.Well, they were satisfied. Thats all they needed to know. She sent the email, they jumped to a conclusion based on what it says on the email about what happened and shes never given a fair opportunity to explain what it really was.The NCAA gives schools and individual parties named for violations 90 days to respond to charges outlined in a Notice of Allegations (NOA). Thats often tougher for individuals compared to a school working with compliance staffers and outside attorneys.That creates somewhat of a double burden, said Stu Brown, an Atlanta-based attorney who has worked with schools on infractions cases. It tends to necessitate the hiring of personal legal counsel and that can be extremely expensive when you think of just the number of documents and number of pages of things that have to be looked at just for somebody to get up to speed on the case.Both UNC and Boxill filed responses Monday and released them publicly Tuesday. The NCAA enforcement staff has 60 days to respond, which would eventually lead to a hearing with an infractions committee panel.Among its arguments, UNC stated its accreditation agency -- not the NCAA -- was tthe proper authority to handle issues related to irregular courses with significant athlete enrollments in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department.ddddddddddddAs for Boxill, the NOA cited 18 incidents between February 2003 and July 2010, such as making changes for athletes to use in papers, suggesting a course grade and providing an athlete with a completed quiz for one of Boxills courses.The former philosophy professor and faculty chairwoman retired in 2015 after UNC began taking steps to fire her following a 2014 outside investigation that detailed the AFAM irregularities.Roden said many of Boxills charges are due to email exchanges taken out of context. He said they had since cobbled together more details by talking to former students involved and sifting through thousands of emails released publicly through records requests.As an example, Roden said the quiz in question was a take-home assignment used to spur class discussion. A student emailed her answers to Boxill seeking help. Boxill spoke with her to explain the response didnt answer the posed question, and replied by email change it or fill in as you wish for the student to make her own changes, according to the response.Asked about the complaints in Boxills response, UNC athletics director Bubba Cunningham said Tuesday the school has been very cooperative with the NCAA and anyone else who has asked.Weve been open and transparent in everything that we have done, Cunningham said. And Ill let her response speak for itself. But weve done everything we can, that we think is appropriate for the institution and those that we represent.Roden said Boxill focused on helping students be successful in life and graduate, not stay eligible to compete.Shes 77 years old. Shes not going to work for another NCAA-regulated institution, Roden said. So theres nothing they can do to her. This is about trying to clear her name. . Thats why were doing this.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
