Nasser Hussain described Alex Hales as the find of the series after the opener scored three fifties across Englands 2-0 triumph over Sri Lanka. Sergio Aguero Manchester City Jersey . Hales responded from a tough winter series in South Africa in which he scored 136 runs at an average of 17 by notching 86 at Headingley, 83 in Durham and 94 at Lords.Hussain feels the Nottinghamshire star has now cemented his place, while the Sky Cricket expert also saluted Englands man of the series, Jonny Bairstow, who followed a maiden Test ton in Cape Town with two centuries against Sri Lanka. Alex Hales scored 292 runs at 58.40 against Sri Lanka Hales is the find of the series, said Hussain. There were questions after South Africa of whether he could do it in an England shirt and while he may not have got a hundred he has proved he is a Test playerWe had a feeling Bairstow was maturing but he proved he is a serious player who didnt just have a one-off series in South Africa.I think that not only is he very talented but that he is also quite strong mentally and determined to improve and prove people wrong. Englands Man of the Series Jonny Bairstow told Michael Atherton that he wanted to prove his doubters wrong Hales and Bairstows success was not mirrored by Nick Compton, who seems set to be jettisoned for the series against Pakistan later this summer following a return of 51 runs at 12.75.Hussain reckons Durhams Scott Borthwick, who has scored 574 first-class runs at 82 in 2016 and over 1,000 runs in each of the past three campaigns, will earn a call-up.Compton seems to implode when things dont quite go his way, so England will be looking for someone in that pivotal No 3 position, said Hussain. Dean Wilson of The Mirror and Lawrence Booth of the Daily Mail discuss the future of Nick Compton and who could replace him for the Pakistan series The selectors will be looking at historical averages, who players are getting their runs against, where they are getting them, and how important the runs are.I feel Borthwick will come in - the only way James Vince might go up there is if they bring in Jos Buttler as wicketkeeper and play Bairstow as a batsman.England and Sri Lanka will now square off in a five-match ODI series, contests Bairstow could figure in after being brought back into the limited-overs fold for the first time since last summer. England are a good side with some very exciting players, added Hussain. They play super, modern white-ball cricket under Eoin Morgan.Sri Lanka are a better white-ball side but they have lost Tillakaratne Dilshan [due to personal reasons] for this series, while Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena are gone, so I strongly fancy England.Watch England and Sri Lankas five-match ODI series live on Sky Sports, starting with the opening match, at Trent Bridge, from 1.30pm on Tuesday, June 21.

On Sunday afternoon, the Spurs trailed 81-71 with 7:45 to play, but closed the game on a 19-4 run. They finished with a 90-85 victory and a 10-game winning streak against their Texas neighbors. "Made some stops, that generates offense. We needed it," San Antonios All- Star guard Tony Parker said of the run. San Antonio couldnt buy a 3-pointer as Manu Ginobili was the only Spur to convert one in Game 1. He went 3-of-6 from 3-point range, but the Spurs went just 3-of-17 (17.6 percent) as a team. It shot a blistering 43.3 percent (42- of-97) from downtown in four games against Dallas this season. The difference on Sunday was Tim Duncan. The future Hall of Famer finished with 27 points and seven rebounds. "We got killed on threes in the first four outings this year," Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki said. "We stayed home a little more on 3-point shooters, but youve got to give them something, and Duncan in there is obviously still solid." Parker posted 21 points, six assists and four rebounds for the top-seeded Spurs, who finished with the NBAs best record at 62-20. Ginobili finished with 17 points and six rebounds, while Kawhi Leonard registered a double- double with 11 points and 10 boards. Devin Harris led Dallas with 19 points, followed by 11 apiece from Nowitzzki, Monta Ellis and Brandan Wright. Willy Caballero Manchester City Jersey. Vince Carter chipped in 10 off the bench. The late-game run was sparked by, of course, Duncan. He banked in a turnaround and then put in a runner to begin the surge before Tiago Splitter tied the game at 81-81 with a layup with 4:54 remaining. Consecutive Parker baskets gave the Spurs their first lead since it was 50-49 when there was 8:14 left in the third. Wright split a pair of foul shots to pull Dallas within 86-82 with 2:05 on the clock, but it never got any closer. Splitter sunk two foul shots at the other end and the Mavericks missed three of their final four shots from the field. "Its obvious that we did a lot of great things," Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle told the teams website. "We built a lead, but 7 1/2 minutes is a long time in an NBA game and youve got to be able to sustain. Weve got to work on getting another lead in Game 2 and then closing." The Spurs received some good news on Tuesday when Gregg Popovich was named Coach of the Year. He became the third coach to earn the honor three times, joining Pat Riley and Don Nelson. "I feel very honored for a whole lot of reasons," said Popovich. "First, there were so many coaches that did such a great job this year. To be singled out is pretty humbling. "When you win an award, it comes down to the players. Theyve been unbelievable for me. Without their play, diligence and professionalism, I know this wouldnt happen." Game 3 will be Saturday evening in Dallas. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
