2 Number of times batsmen at No. Under Armour Womens Shoes Sale . 6 or lower have faced more balls in a Test innings against Australia than Dinesh Chandimals 356 in his innings of 132. Faf du Plessis had faced 376 balls in the Adelaide Test in 2012-13. The only other instance came in the 1938 Ashes at the Oval when Joe Hardstaff (jnr) faced exactly 400 balls in Englands first innings at the Oval.3 Number of centuries Chandimal has hit at No. 6 when he has come in to bat with Sri Lanka four down for less than 100 runs. Before this innings, he had hit 162 in Sri Lankas second innings in Galle last year. He had joined Angelo Mathews at the crease with Sri Lanka struggling at 92 for 4 facing a first-innings deficit of 192 runs. Before that innings, he had made 102 against Bangladesh in 2012-13 with Sri Lanka having lost four wickets on 69. Apart from these three hundreds, he has made two fifties in such situations and has scored 635 runs at 79.37 in nine such innings.2 Number of Test innings by Sri Lanka batsmen against Australia that have been longer than Chandimals 356-ball effort. Asanka Gurusinha had faced 399 balls for his 137 at the SSC in 1992, and Aravinda de Silva had faced 361 deliveries in Sri Lankas first innings at the Gabba in 1989-90.

Mahela Jayawardene and Prasanna Jayawardene had added 351 in Ahmedabad in 2009-10. This was only the third double-hundred stand for Sri Lankas sixth wicket in Tests. This is also the second 200-plus run stand for Sri Lanka against Australia for any wicket. Before this, Asanka Gurusinha and Arjuna Ranatunga had added 230 runs for the fourth wicket in 1992 at the same venue.80 Innings taken by Steven Smith to hit 4000 Test runs - which is joint-third for least by an Australia batsman. Neil Harvey had also taken 80 innings. Only Don Bradman (48 innings) and Matthew Hayden (77 innings) have made 4000 Test runs faster than Smith. However, Smith is the youngest Australia batsman to the milestone, at 27 years and 73 days, shaving Ricky Pontings record by 265 days.1986 Last time a pair added more runs for the sixth wicket in a Test against Australia. Ravi Shastri and Dilip Vengsarkar had added an unbeaten 298 in Indias first innings of the Mumbai Test. This was only the sixth 200-plus-run stand against Australia in Tests.2 Number of 200-run stands for the sixth wicket in Tests in Sri Lanka before this. Australias pair of Simon Katich and Justin Langer had added 218 runs at the same venue in 2003-04. The only other such stand in Sri Lanka came in 1987 between Jeff Crowe and Richard Hadlee, when the pair added an unbeaten 246 runs.1934 Only previous instance of No. 6 and No. 7 batsmen hitting hundreds in a Test innings against Australia. Maurice Leyland and Les Ames had got hundreds at Lords in the 1934 Ashes Test on that occasion. Dhananjaya de Silva and Dinesh Chandimal are the first Sri Lanka No. 6 and No. 7 to get hundreds in the same Test innings. This is also only the second time that two or more Sri Lanka batsmen have got hundreds in a Test innings against Australia. Gurusinha, Ranatunga and Romesh Kaluwitharana had got hundreds in Sri Lankas first innings at the same venue in 1992.1 Number of instances of teams scoring a total higher than Sri Lankas 355 after having lost their first five wicket for less than 50 runs. England had made 446 in their first innings of the Lords Test in 2010 against Pakistan after having been reduced to 47 for 5.0 Number of pacers who had taken three five-wicket hauls in a Test series in Sri Lanka before Mitchell Starc. Starcs five-wicket haul in the first innings of this match followed a pair of five-wicket hauls in Galle. He has taken 22 wickets at an average of 13.27 in this series.1999 Last time, before Starc in this series, an Australia pacer took three consecutive five-wicket hauls against the same opposition. Glenn McGrath had done this against West Indies in three consecutive innings in West Indies. Starcs is only the sixth such instance by an Australia fast bowler. Overall, he is only the eighth Australia fast bowler to take three or more consecutive five-fors in Tests.120 Runs added so far by the partnership between Shaun Marsh and Smith - Australias first century stand of this series. This is also the first time in 15 innings since 1999 that Australias top three have made two or more fifty-plus scores in a Test innings in Sri Lanka. Greg Blewett and Michael Slater had got fifties at the same venue on that occasion. Under Armour Shoes Cheap Online .

Fiedorowicz -- concussionQB Ryan Tannehill -- knee (out)QB Aaron Rodgers -- calfQB Matthew Stafford -- fingerLocksQB: Kirk Cousins vs. CarolinaCousins has been delivering for fantasy owners lately, posting at least two touchdowns in eight straight games. This week, he faces a Panthers defense that ranks 30th against the pass and has given up the seventh-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Captain Kirk is in my top five this week.(Others: Matt Ryan vs. San Francisco, Philip Rivers vs. Oakland)WR: Dez Bryant vs. Tampa BayBryant had a rough outing against the Giants last week, but he should rebound this week with a matchup against the Bucs and rookie defensive back Vernon Hargreaves. Bryant should dominate this matchup. Lets hope he does.(Others: Larry Fitzgerald?vs. New Orleans, Michael Crabtree @ San Diego)RB: Devonta Freeman vs. San FranciscoFreeman was a dud in Week 14 and probably made it difficult for fantasy owners to survive the first round of the playoffs. For those who won and advanced, rejoice! Freeman has one of the best fantasy matchups in Week 15 against the 49ers. He may just take you to the championship all on his own.(Others: Carlos Hyde @ Atlanta, Jeremy Hill vs. Pittsburgh, Latavius Murray @ San Diego)TE: Cameron Brate @ DallasBrate had a subpar Week 14 against the Saints. Hes another player I expect to rebound in Week 15. Sunday, he takes on a Dallas defense that has had an issue with tight ends this season, as the Cowboys have given up the sixth-most fantasy points to his position this season.(Others: Eric Ebron?@ New York Giants)FlopsQB: Tom Brady @ DenverBrady goes from facing a good Ravens defense to a great Broncos defense in back-to-back weeks. I know its difficult to bench Brady, but Denver has given up the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Brady is not in my top 12 come Sunday. There are better options out there, and dont be afraid to use them.WR: Kelvin Benjamin vs. WashingtonJosh Norman will shadow Benjamin on Monday night. Normans side of the field is rarely targeted and has been very effective when the ball is thrown his way. Under Armour Basketball Shoes For Sale. Dont expect a lot of targets for Benjamin in Week 15. No targets = no fantasy points.RB: Mark Ingram @ ArizonaIngram played last week despite a toe injury but did not produce for fantasy owners. It doesnt get much easier this weekend. Arizona is one of the toughest defenses against running backs. The Cards allow the fourth-fewest yards per carry in the league and have given up the fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.TE: Martellus Bennett @ DenverBennett is playing with ankle and shoulder injuries. He takes on a Denver defense that has only allowed the fewest touchdowns (two) to tight ends this season. There are better options this week than the Black Unicorn.SleepersQB: Tyrod Taylor @ ClevelandTaylor will start against the Browns in Week 15. The Browns have allowed the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Allowing 30 passing touchdowns in 14 weeks will do that for you. Taylor will be #ActiveAndAttractive on Sunday.(Honorable mention: Colin Kaepernick vs. Atlanta)WR: Jamison Crowder vs. CarolinaCrowder faces Carolina, a defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to wideouts this year. Crowder has a very favorable matchup against Panthers DB Leonard Johnson. Carolina has given up the fourth-most receiving yards to wide receivers this season as well.(Honorable mentions: Steve Smith Sr. vs. Philadelphia, Tyreek Hill vs. Tennessee, Rishard Matthews @ Kansas City)RB: Bilal Powell vs. MiamiWith Matt Forte dealing with a knee issue, the door could open for Powell to get a lot of work in the Jets backfield. Powell will take on a Dolphins defense that allows over 130 yards per game to running backs, which ranks 30th in the NFL. Im excited to see what Powell will do, if given the chance.(Honorable mentions: Tevin Coleman vs. San Francisco, Isaiah Crowell @ Buffalo, Kenneth Farrow vs. Oakland, Kenneth Dixon vs. Philadelphia, Justin Forsett vs. New England)TE: Ladarius Green @ CincinnatiGreen is getting his share of targets in the Steelers offense. This week, he takes on the Bengals, who have surrendered over 70 yards per game to tight ends, most in the NFL. Cincinnati has given up the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Green is in my top five come Sunday.(Honorable mentions: Antonio Gates vs. Oakland)Good luck in Week 15! Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
