The notable comebackSalman Butt made his return to first-class cricket, leading Water and Power Development Authority against Lahore Blues. Jeff Samardzija Jersey . Butt had last made an appearance in Pakistans domestic circuit in a match for National Bank of Pakistan in October, 2009, against Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited, in Faisalabad. Butt returned after a near seven-year absence, five of which were spent serving out a ban for his involvement in spot-fixing in the 2010 Lords Test against England.Butt was allowed to return once the punishment ended, but was barred from playing first-class cricket, with the PCB wanting to regulate his return closely, and put him through a rehabilitation programme before his reintegration into the cricket community. Butt was allowed to play in limited-overs tournaments, however, where he had impact. But playing in a first-class season was set as a prerequisite before he could be considered for national selection.Butt marked his return with 31 in the first innings. He spent 80 minutes at the crease, before right-arm pacer Waqas Ahmed dislodged his stumps. Butt didnt come out to bat in the second innings, though. With WAPDA set a target of 28, Butt held himself back and promoted Adnan Raees, who, along with Rafatullah Mohmand, won them the match with all 10 wickets intact.The best bowling performanceTabish Khan, a Karachi-born fast bowler, who made his first-class debut in 2003 has since always been in reckoning for national selection, but has remained overshadowed. In his opening match of the season, Tabish, playing for Karachi Whites, ripped through Pakistan International Airlines twice, in the process registering his fourth match haul of 10 wickets or more. Playing in his 99th first-class match, Tabish, 31, took 11 for 76, which took his career wickets tally 427 at an average of 24.78. One of the defining features of Tabishs bowling has been his delivery angle and sharp pace, which has made his talent stand out since the early years of his domestic career. Tabish first came into the limelight when he took 77 wickets at 23.62 in the 2009-10 season, before further asserting himself in 2011-12 when his 77 wickets came at an average of 19.96. But, despite those performances, he never rose above the Pakistan A side.The most disappointing performanceNasir Jamshed, a promising left-hand batsman who has played two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20 internationals for Pakistan, last turned out in national colours in an ODI against UAE in 2015. He is best remembered for his twin hundreds against India when Pakistan visited for a limited-overs series in 2012-13. But he hasnt looked assertive since, and has largely been lost in the wilderness. Pakistan have always had a vacant opening slot, which makes the ongoing first-class season all the more relevant for top-order batsmen. Jamshed, however, made a dismal start, notching up 7 and 36 for National Bank of Pakistan against Lahore Whites in Faisalabad.The fightback The PCB recently approved a series of day-night first-class games, allowing all first-class teams to get exposure to the pink ball under lights. Experimentation with the pink ball got off to an extraordinary start in this tournament, as Karachi Blues scored 702 runs in the second innings against United Bank Limited at National Stadium in Karachi.Moreover this happened after the first innings of the match was dominated by the bowlers. Karachi Blues, after being dismissed for 111 in first innings, returned in the second innings to bat for almost three days and draw. Khurrum Manzoor smacked a double-hundred, with Khalid Latif scoring 148, but United Bank took away with three points from the match on the basis of a first-innings lead with Sialkot-born left-arm spinner Yasim Murtaza snapping up 8 for 231. Mel Ott Jersey . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. Brandon Crawford Jersey . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http:///...rlando-cepeda-jersey . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. BOSTON -- Its been a strenuous 10-game road trip for the majors best team, but the Texas Rangers are hoping to cap it off with a win against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night.Texas (53-32) reclaimed the top record in the league after the Chicago Cubs 9-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.Of course, they had to claim a victory of their own to make that happen.That didnt turn out to be much of a problem, as the Rangers toppled the Red Sox for a 7-2 victory that brought them to 4-5 through the first nine games of their trip.Its key, especially going back home, Texas manager Jeff Banister said about the prospect of a win Wednesday. Tough road trip, second 10-game road trip in a very short period of time -- I think 37-game stretch.To go home .500 (on the road trip) I think it would be a big momentum boost for us, to go back home, get in our ballpark and head on into the break.The Rangers opened the trip with consecutive wins against the New York Yankees, but wound up splitting the four-game series.Then they suffered a particularly embarrassing setback, dropping two of three games to the league-worst Minnesota Twins before taking a 12-5 defeat Monday against the Red Sox.The team also had a 10-game trip from June 10-19, but they fared much better in that one with eight wins.Boston (45-38) suffered its ninth loss in 15 games Tuesday, dropping it to third place in the American League East.The team with six All-Stars -- four starters in David Ortiz, Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. Youth Giants Jerseys. -- could only muster a pair of runs against a team that has two -- Ian Desmond and Cole Hamels.Everybodys doing all right, said Bradley, who hit a solo home run Tuesday. I dont think we are as bad as were showing. Were definitely capable of putting together a good run. Hopefully that comes soon.Perhaps the Red Soxs most unlikely All-Star will be the man taking the mound on Wednesday.Right-hander Steven Wright (9-5, 2.42 ERA) has been the best pitcher on a staff that includes former Cy Young Award winner David Price and his mammoth $217 million contract.The knuckleballer is 0-2 against the Rangers with a 5.23 ERA in two starts -- including a June 25 start in Arlington during which he allowed a season-worst eight runs (three earned) on seven hits in a 4 2/3 inning defeat.Prince Fielder is 3-for-6 against Wright while Desmond is 1-for-3 with a solo homer.Texas counters with left-hander Martin Perez, who held the Red Sox to one run on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a 6-2 victory on June 26.Perez is 2-1 with a 4.91 ERA in four starts versus Boston. Ortiz is 2-for-6 with a solo homer against Perez while Pedroia is 3-for-11. Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Gear Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
