ROSEAU, Dominica (CMC) – West Indies defied opener Azhar Ali’s 14th Test century and Pakistan’s attritional batting with sheer perseverance, to leave the decisive third Test at Windsor Park well poised on the second day here yesterday.The Caribbean side were forced to toil on a lifeless pitch but did so manfully to dismiss Pakistan in their first innings for 376, an hour before the close.Azhar, starting the day unbeaten on 85, carved out 127 – his second successive hundred following his 105 in the first innings of the Barbados Test last week.Captain Misbah-ul-Haq struck 59 playing in his final Test while wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed produced a breezy 51 down the order.Part-time off-spinner Roston Chase was the best bowler with four for 103 while captain and seamer Jason Holder claimed three for 71 and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, two for 61.Left to navigate 11 tricky overs at the end, West Indies openers Kieran Powell (9 not out) and Kraigg Brathwaite (5 not out) endured little horrors to reach the close unscathed on 14 without loss.The Caribbean side trail Pakistan by 362 runs heading into the pivotal day three of the match.Rsuming the day on 169 for two, the visitors inched their way painfully through an extended opening session, adding a mere 58 runs from 30 overs sent down.The lone casualty of the morning was veteran outstanding right-hander Younis Khan, like Misbah in his final Test of a glittering career, fell lbw to Holder 45 minutes into the day after adding just eight to his overnight 10.He was adjudged to be struck in front by one that came back and he failed to get a reprieve after resorting to DRS.Azhar, however, reached his century an hour before lunch when he turned Holder to fine leg for a couple and was unbeaten on 122 at the interval with Pakistan crawling to 227 for three.He had put on 64 for the fourth wicket with Misbah when he finally perished half-hour after lunch, bowled missing a wild swing at Chase with the runs having dried up.All told, the 32-year-old faced 334 balls and struck eight fours and two sixes, and is now just 35 runs short of 5 000 runs in Tests.Misbah then took control of the session, adding 33 for the fifth wicket with Asad Shafiq (17) and 37 for the sixth with Sarfraz, as he strolled to his 39th half-century.Shafiq tried to push the scoring along, showing urgency with two boundaries off 38 balls before he fell to a catch in the deep by Vishaul Singh off Chase, 33 minutes before tea.Dropped by wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich off Holder before he had scored to the sixth ball he faced before lunch, Misbah emerged from ultra-cautious start to hit six fours and a six in a 148-ball knock.He was unbeaten on eight at lunch from 60 deliveries but upped the tempo as tea approached and reached his landmark by crashing the ineffective Bishoo over mid-off for four, in the penultimate over before tea.Misbah then cleared the ropes with Chase off the first ball of the final over before the break but his ambition got the better of him and he top-edged a reverse sweep off the next ball and was taken by Dowrich.On 311 for six at the interval, Pakistan were further rocked in the third over after the resumption when Holder produced a double-wicket maiden, bowling Mohammad Amir for seven and then having Yasir Shah caught by Powell at first slip off the next delivery.But Sarfraz, unbeaten on eight at tea, provided the late flourish for Pakistan in a busy innings that needed only 73 balls and contained four fours.Significantly, he posted an invaluable 45 with Mohammad Abbas who made only four, as the tail wagged for Pakistan.Bishoo, though, then struck a decisive blow when he removed Sarfraz to a catch at slip by Shai Hope, with the fifth delivery after the drinks break and Dowrich, who had earlier mis-stumped Abbas, then made amends by claiming the batsman in similar fashion in Bishoo’s next over.last_img read more

NFL standings: Updated AFC, NFC playoff picture after Week 11

first_imgNFC playoff pictureWho would be in?1. 49ers, first place, NFC West (9-1) — The 49ers now have at least one loss like everyone in the league but got out of Week 11 still a game ahead of the Seahawks, to whom they lost in overtime in Week 10. They survived the Cardinals, but for playoff positioning purposes, critical games against the Packers and Saints are around the corner.2. Packers, first place, NFC North (8-2) — The Packers were able to jump up here after beating the Panthers, while the Saints lost to the Buccaneers in Week 10. The Packers would end up No. 1 ahead of the Seahawks, should the 49ers get upset by the Cardinals.3. Saints, first place, NFC South (8-2) — The Saints remain here after beating the Buccaneers; a win kept them behind the Packers because of a conference record tiebreaker and two full games ahead of the Cowboys, whom they beat.4. Cowboys, first place, NFC East (6-4) — The Cowboys took advantage of the get-well game against the Lions to ensure they will stay at least a head-to-head tiebreaker over the Eagles. They probably can’t rise higher than No. 4 given they lost to both the Packers and Saints.5. Seahawks, second place, NFC West (8-2) — The Seahawks got their massive win against the 49ers and were rewarded with a well-deserved bye after going overtime on Monday night. They’ll either stay here a little ahead of the Vikings or jump up to No. 2 behind the Packers should the 49ers lose.6. Vikings, second place, NFC North (8-3) — The Vikings enjoyed a big Week 10 NFC win over the Cowboys that both fortified their wild-card position and put division heat on the first-place Packers, to whom they’ve lost. The Vikings cut the lead to a half-game with a win over the Broncos.Who can get there?7. Rams (6-4), 8. Eagles (5-5), 9. Panthers (5-5), 10. Bears (4-6), 11. Lions (3-6-1)The Rams are seeing the division get away from them, but they got a much-needed win over the Bears on Sunday night to set up a possible late wild-card surge, despite being two  wins behind both the Seahawks and Vikings. The Eagles, after losing to the Patriots, are probably better off thinking more about how to finish ahead of the Cowboys in the East, now down a full game and a loss to them. AFC playoff pictureWho would be in?1. Patriots, first place, AFC East (9-1) — The Patriots returned to beat the Eagles coming off a bye and their first loss of the season to the Ravens and maintained their only one-game edge for home-field advantage, down a head-to-head tiebreaker. They have one more tough NFC game against the Cowboys before two more critical AFC tests against the Texans and Chiefs.2. Ravens, first place, AFC North (8-2) — The Ravens got their big win against the Patriots and backed that up by routing the Bengals and Texans. The Ravens have the key tiebreakers in place for the top seed, given the Chiefs, to whom they lost, are solidly behind them.3. Chiefs, first place, AFC West (7-4) — The Chiefs get up here before their bye thanks to beating the Chargers, now holding a half-game lead over the Raiders for the division lead and a half-game lead over the Colts for the third seed.4. Colts, first place, AFC South (6-4) — The Colts jumped back up here after beating the Jaguars. They hold the division lead over the Texans again because they beat them. They also beat the Chiefs, so they hold the tiebreaker there.5. Bills, second place, AFC East (7-3) — The Bills are now returning closer to a tight wild-card hopeful pack, and that loss to the Browns can prove costly, even with a favorable schedule ahead. But taking care of the Dolphins as expected was helpful.6. Texans, second place, AFC South (6-4) — The Texans fell here after falling hard to the Ravens on Sunday. They stay here coming out of Week 11 because they beat the Raiders.Who can get there?7. Raiders (6-4), 8. Steelers (5-5), 9. Titans (5-5), 10. Browns (4-6), 11. Jaguars (4-6), 12. Chargers (4-7)The Raiders beat the Bengals to stay ahead of the Steelers and right behind the Texans, down only a tiebreaker. The Steelers fell hard to the Browns, who stayed alive after Thursday night. The Chargers are barely alive going into the bye after losing to the Chiefs on Monday night.Who’s likely out?13. Broncos (3-7), 14. Jets (3-7), 15. Dolphins (2-8)The Broncos suffered a tough loss at the Vikings, while the Jets got ahead of the Dolphins by beating the Redskins.Who’s out?16. Bengals (0-10)The Bengals are still headed to the top pick in the draft.WEEK 11 NFL PICKS: Against the spread | Straight-up predictions (Getty Images) Here’s an updated look at what each conference field would look like if the playoffs started after Week 11.NFL POWER RANKINGS:Ravens, Packers, Vikings head north; Chiefs, Cowboys slipNFL standings after Week 11 Who’s likely out12.

(AP Photo/Chuck Burton)CHARLOTTE, N.C. — With Dwight Howard struggling with his shot and a tough back-to-back looming, the Charlotte Hornets needed a bit of variety on offense against the Utah Jazz.Kemba Walker scored 22 points and Frank Kaminsky added 16 to lead the Hornets to their fourth victory in six games, 99-88 on Friday night.

We needed it, especially after last game.”Batum and Jeremy Lamb added 11 points apiece for Charlotte, which lost to Dallas 115-111 on Wednesday to start a three-game homestand.Donovan Mitchell scored 35 points for Utah, which has lost 14 of 19.

Charlotte limited him to 3-of-8 shooting the rest of the way.“We’ve tried to not put a ceiling on him one way or the other,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said of Mitchell. “Just focus on day-to-day what he’s doing. From that standpoint, he continues to get better. He struggled late in a playmaking position, so he’s figuring things out.”ADVERTISEMENT “We had a post-up game, we had a pick-and-roll game, we had a catch-and-shoot game,” said Hornets associate head coach Stephen Silas. “Nic (Batum) got going early, and we’ve been talking a lot.”Marvin Williams scored 15 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 12 for Charlotte, which won despite an off night for Howard, who scored just two first-half points.
