Australia will play its first league game against Afghanistan. Alex Carey is a part of Australia squad for World Cup 2019. Aaron Finch will lead the side in World Cup 2019. New Delhi: Australia’s wicket-keeper batsman, Alex Carey is set to join Sussex for the T20 Blast after the conclusion of ICC World Cup, it was confirmed on Thursday (May 30). The tournament will start from July 18 and Sussex will play their first game on the next day against Hampshire.Carey said he’s excited to work with Jason Gillespie and is looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd. “I’m very excited to get the opportunity to play with Sussex,” he pointed out.”I played for East Grinstead in the Sussex Premier League a few years ago and now to play for the Sharks in the Blast is super exciting. I’ve heard the fans are the best in the country and I can’t wait to join Dizzy and the guys in July.” Carey has played 44 T20 games and has 918 runs to his name at a strike rate of 128.93 with one century. Gillespie, who is also a coach at Adelaide Strikers where Carey plays in the Big Bash League, stressed the batsman’s ability to adapt will hold him in good stead.”We’re delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to Alex and excited for him to be linking up with us,” he said “He’s been impressive opening the batting for the Strikers in the Big Bash and now he’s getting experience in the middle order with Australia.”He can certainly clear the ropes but he’s also able to read and adapt to different conditions. That versatility will give us options on how best to utilise his batting in this year’s Blast. Alex is also a world-class keeper so to have a player like him joining the Sharks is a real coup for the club. I know Alex well from the Adelaide Strikers and he knows Sussex well from his time playing league cricket in the county, so I’ve no doubt he’ll fit in nicely in our dressing room.” highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
From David Gilreath’s opening kickoff return for a touchdown to the final whistle, fans were eager to celebrate an OSU loss on Oct. 16.[/media-credit]It was perfect.The underdog had the No. 1 team in the nation at home, a place where those rankings haven’t mattered much. It was time to make a statement, to let the rest of the country know Wisconsin was for real.Mission accomplished – twice.As soon as the 2010 football schedule was released, Oct. 16 was circled and starred. The Buckeyes – who everyone loves to hate, and who the Badgers have played pretty evenly over the past decade – were coming to Camp Randall. It was a night game, and ESPN’s College GameDay was in town. Something special had to happen against the top-ranked team, right?And following a conference play-opening loss to Michigan State that made the Badgers look doomed for disappointment, the OSU game loomed larger than ever. Jim Tressel’s squad looked like it might steamroll UW. Bret Bielema’s boys had Rose Bowl aspirations that would hinge on an upset of OSU.Drama, anyone?David Gilreath finally returned a kickoff for a touchdown – the opening kickoff, nonetheless – and Madison erupted. Fifty-nine minutes of play later, the Badgers were mobbed by a deluge of ecstatic fans celebrating a 31-18 win over the Buckeyes.Season saved, statement made.And like any good tale, there was the opportunity for a sequel. But would it play out like “The Godfather, Part II” or “Blues Brothers 2000”?When Ohio State’s basketball team regained the No. 1 ranking just in time for a trip to the Kohl Center, Herald Sports appropriately ran the headline, “We’ve heard this story before.”Down by 15 points early in the second half, it looked like that $100 for the game ticket had gone to waste. UW couldn’t score and OSU was running – practically sprinting – away with a huge road win.But then Jordan Taylor woke up and showed America why he is one of the nation’s top point guards. With 13:21 to play, he keyed one of the greatest Wisconsin comebacks, overcoming a 15-point second-half deficit for just the sixth time in UW history. Taylor scored 18 points in that last 13-and-a-half minutes, playing a direct part in 34 of UW’s final 39 points.Taylor finished with 27 points, making the game final, UW 71, OSU 67.Again, No. 1 Ohio State came to Madison. And again, the Buckeyes could only trudge off the playing surface as Badger fans stormed out of the stands to celebrate.How often does a team get the chance to beat the No. 1 team at home in a season, let alone twice? And how many teams capitalize on both opportunities? Both were great moments, and both complemented each other; neither was as impressive unless the other was considered.So yes, Wisconsin taking down No. 1 Ohio State at home is the top moment of the 2010-2011 year. As for which particular win, that’s up to you.
