West Indies 143 (Charles 43, Mishra 3-24, Ashwin 2-11, Bumrah 2-26) v India 15 for 0 No result Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsInternational cricket has lost valuable time in strange circumstances in recent weeks - bright daylight but non-drying outfields in rainy months - but what happened in Lauderhill on Sunday might just be too bizarre for even cricket to come up with. For 40 minutes at the start of the day, on another beautiful sunny morning, the full house at the ground was denied cricket because the broadcasters suffered an unavoidable and technical problem. Once the game began India bowled superbly to bowl West Indies out for 143, but two overs into the chase, a 20-minute shower was enough to ensure the three remaining overs required to constitute a result would not be bowled.This two-match series, which West Indies won 1-0, was supposed to be an exercise to take the game into a new market, a market where fans are used to being treated better than cricket tends to treat fans in India. They would have been in for a rude surprise when, after paying steep prices for their tickets, they didnt even get a proper public announcement explaining the delayed start. The broadcasters had paid massive sums for the rights and deserved some consideration, but there was rain expected later in the afternoon. You can imagine the eggshells the match officials would have walked on while sanctioning that delay.That was not the last bizarre act of the day. At around 12.40pm, with India looking to be on their way to a win having restricted West Indies, it rained for around 20 minutes. The ground didnt have a Super Sopper, and wasnt covered fully. The business area was promptly ready for play and the deep parts of the outfield drained well too, but the top of the bowlers run-ups, around the area where the painted advertisements are, didnt dry up. The captains were seen looking at that particular area with concern minutes before the game was called off at 2pm.The official presentation was carried out in gloomy circumstances with the official interviewer steering clear of even mentioning the delayed start, without which the crowd would have had a result. The studio shows and the official interviewer only spoke of how humans are helpless against mother nature and weather. Without being prompted, the West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite said he hoped the drainage and equipment would improve at the ground, which he said was a wonderful venue otherwise.It would have been particularly disappointing for the India fans who would have been expecting to celebrate a bowling comeback after their side went for 245 on Saturday, and the comeback of Amit Mishra. He last played a Twenty20 international during the World T20 in 2014. In the next year-and-a-half India only played bilateral Twenty20 internationals, not bothering with flying in T20 specialists for one or two three-hour matches. By the time India started taking T20 internationals seriously again, in the lead-up to the 2016 World T20, Mishra had lost out to Pawan Negi and Harbhajan Singh without being given a chance to build on his impressive bowling in 2014.Now, perhaps precisely because India didnt bother to fly in T20 specialists for another bilateral series, Mishra got another chance, and made immediate impact to help India bowl West Indies out for 143.Mishra removed Johnson Charles with the first ball he bowled, inside the Powerplay. Charles had run away to 43 off 24 in the first five overs, but Mishra began with a front-of-the-hand legbreak that followed Charles as opposed to turning away, cramping him up, getting him caught at long-on. After that the spinners choked the life out of the West Indies batting. Ravindra Jadeja zipped through with quiet overs, and R Ashwin bowled cleverly to take the wickets of Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard.The fact that spinners bowled so well just after the Powerplay meant India could afford to introduce Jasprit Bumrah after the 10th over. He prefers the ball to be as old as possible. Bumrah responded immediately with the wicket of Marlon Samuels, and the others tightened the screws around him. West Indies, with Brathwaite coming in at No. 9, kept coming hard at India even though they kept losing wickets. India still kept taking wickets, bowling West Indies out for a below-par score, but they were powerless against the weather. Max Garcia Jersey .

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants won two Super Bowls under Tom Coughlin by being able to pressure the opposing quarterback and getting just enough big plays from Eli Manning and the offense to pull out a lot of close games.In coach Ben McAdoos first season since taking over for Coughlin, the Giants (9-4) are using the same formula in a bid to end a four-year playoff drought.Its a formula that also has put the only two blemishes on the Dallas Cowboys record (11-2) this season.The Giants defense befuddled rookie quarterback Dak Prescott on a cold, damp night, and Manning overcame a miserable performance to hook up with Odell Beckham Jr. on a go-ahead, 61-yard catch-and-run late in the third quarter as New York ended the Cowboys 11-game winning streak with a 10-7 victory Sunday .I think that everything is in front of us, Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. I think that we can be as good as we want to be. As long as we keep our head down and keep grinding away -- it is still a long season. We have some games left and I am planning on playing in January. That is the goal right now, to get through December and play in January.If the defense plays the way it did against Dallas, the Giants are going back to the playoffs for the first time since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012 against the Patriots.Steve Spagnuolos unit limited Dallas to a season-low 260 yards , held the Cowboys to 1 of 15 on third down and didnt allow Ezekiel Elliott to bust a big run despite gaining 107 yards rushing.New York cornerback Janoris Jenkins blanketed star receiver Dez Bryant for the second straight game, limiting him to one catch late and forcing a fumble on the same play. Bryant had two catches in two games against the Giants this season as the Cowboys scored a total of 26 points. They were scoring almost 28 per game this season entering Sunday night.While saying they didnt execute well, veteran Cowboys tight end Jason Witten gave credit to the Giants in a game they played without star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. He is out for the rest of the regular season because of a sports hernia.They were pressuring us, Witten said. They were bringing some heat and we werent able to capitalize on it. I tell you what, our defense kept us in the game. I thought they did a heck of a job. Giving us a chance, we didnt play good enoough.ddddddddddddBeckham, who turned a short slant into a touchdown with an incredible burst of speed, felt the same way about the Giants offense.To me personally when you are not on the field and seeing what that defense does, that makes all the difference in the world, he said. The quote Ive heard for a long time is offense wins games, defense wins championships, and this is a championship defense.Here are five takeaways from the game:THE ROAD AHEAD: With three games left in the regular season, the Cowboys magic number for winning the NFC East is two. Any combination of wins by the Cowboys and losses by the Giants totaling two gives Dallas the division title. New York still has the best record among second-place teams in the NFC wild-card race. Dallas is home next weekend against Tampa Bay (8-5). The Giants host Detroit (9-4).REPLACING JPP: Rookie free agent Romeo Okwara started for Pierre-Paul at left end and led the Giants with eight tackles and one of their three sacks. It was his first career sack. Linebacker Devon Kennard also filled in at defensive end and tackle in passing situations. He had six tackles and a sack.DAK NOT A COLD-WEATHER GUY: Prescott didnt seem to like the cold and it didnt help that the ball was a little wet at times. He finished 17 of 37 for 165 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Knowing how talented our offense is, having high expectations of myself and stalling drive after drive, it gets frustrating, Prescott said.NO ROMO: Prescotts struggles against the fierce Giants pass rush and sticky secondary didnt have Dallas thinking about whether longtime starter Tony Romo should take over at quarterback.Finally recovered from his back issues, Romo is the clear backup these days to the superb rookie. But Prescott wasnt superb against New York.So, naturally, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about Romo. He smiled and, with emphasis, said no when the subject of Romo seeing action came up.Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was asked if at any point he considered turning to Romo. Again, an emphatic no.We just feel good about Dak Prescott playing quarterback for us right now, Garrett said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and -http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
