Try running with your head tilted up towards the sky, your wide-brim hat on top, and the head parallel to the ground. Hang on. Focus on the ball that is already ahead of you and is coming down fast. Go full pelt while you are at it; if you go slowly you wont make it by the time the ball lands. Careful. Dont move your head or you will lose sight of the ball. Then, after 12 full strides, not straight but at an angle and back from midwicket towards the boundary, as the ball falls over your shoulder, stick your hands out at the exact right time even as you make the final two strides. Fourteen strides of magic. The stable head. The strong legs propelling him towards the ball. No need to dive.The leading edge from Jonny Bairstow wasnt a skier but seemed to be travelling far enough from fielders. The bowler Ishant Sharma didnt seem to be too hopeful of a wicket. Ravindra Jadeja didnt have even half a second to decide which direction to run in and how fast he needed to go. He judged the direction perfectly, and put his head up and charged towards the ball. About 30-35 metres of smooth gliding run without any time to judge the catch because this was not a skier. No TV cameras can do justice to this bit of magic.Magic it was that India needed in the final two sessions of the day if they were to stretch their 3-0 series lead. Seventeen wickets had fallen in 13 sessions before that. The pitch had been flat. Moeen Ali had scored a century, Englands Nos. 8 and 9 had scored fifties without ever looking out, KL Rahul gifted his wicket on 199 and Karun Nair scored a triple-century in only his third Test. You needed some magic to bring this Test to life. Magic came through getting little things right. The way Jadeja does. Like in that catch. It wasnt a spectacular dive. There was no juggling involved at the boundary. It was the coming together of little things: the judgement, the head position, the legs, the extension of the hands. He hardly broke stride. He hardly bowled magic deliveries, but the little things he did right on that pitch came together to become magic.Bairstows was the fourth wicket to fall. The first three had fallen to Jadeja. One of them was Cook, for the sixth time in the series. A man whose career Jadeja gave a new lease of life back in 2014 when he dropped him in Southampton. A better tribute to Jadeja cant come than from Cook. Jadeja is not a spectacular bowler. He doesnt dip it or drift it alarmingly. So it is not always easy to spot what it is that Jadeja does to get all those wickets. It is a good idea to ask Cook what was special about Jadeja. After all he was averaging 98 against left-arm spin before he came to India: 1372 runs at 3.14 an over for just 14 dismissals.Cook started off by saying, You can see why he was getting me out. I was missing straight balls or getting caught.Yet another voice dismissing Jadeja, you thought, but then Cook went deeper. He said it was strange to struggle against left-arm spin for the first time in his career. Then he summed Jadeja up. Nothing like a little grudging respect. I found him hard work, Cook said. It has been a strange thing for me. Credit to him, he found a bit of a weakness there. And he was relentless at it. I wasnt good enough to cope with it.Find a weakness. Keep attacking it relentlessly. And with Jadejas fitness you never find a release. The weakness here was that Cook was getting a touch too far across when he played left-arm spin. Jadeja kept bowling in an area from where he would repeatedly threaten the inside edge or beat him. He would keep dragging Cook further and further to the left, and then slip one straight in. The accuracy meant you had to take risks lest you be sitting ducks to the one that misbehaves.Through the series, Virat Kohli acknowledged, Jadejas pressure helped Ashwin get wickets. On the final day of the series, though, Jadeja kept them all for himself. England will be rightly criticised for getting out to attacking shots - none of their first eight fell defending - but Cook could see why they were doing so. Stuart Broad eventually got one from Jadeja that he could do nothing about. The batsmen were mindful they didnt want a similar end, and they knew Jadeja had found his rough and was going to keep hitting it relentlessly. They just didnt back themselves to be good enough for so long that Jadeja starts making mistakes.Eventually Jadeja ended just two wickets behind Ashwin in this series, at five runs apiece cheaper and in 17 overs fewer. In that final dance of victory - when every ball is accompanied by an appeal from the stands - Jadeja was everywhere. Seven wickets, three catches, creating magic, but without tricks.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.

Baltimore captured its second straight win in the series on Saturday, holding on for a 6-5 victory. It got things started off quickly in the bottom of the first inning by putting up three runs and led rest of the way. Adam Jones and Danny Valencia each homered for the second straight game. J.J. Hardy had two hits and two RBI, and Chris Davis knocked in another run to add to an RBI total that ranks second in the majors (46). "I just see the ball good here," said Jones, who now has 11 career homers at Rogers Centre. "I dont think its anything in particular. Its just baseball." The Orioles 68 home runs are the most in majors, with nine of those long balls coming in the first three games of this series. Freddy Garcia (1-2) earned his first win in an Orioles uniform, surrendering nine hits and two earned runs in five innings. Jim Johnson pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 15th save. For the Blue Jays, R.A. Dickeys (4-6) disappointing season continued. He lasted 6 2/3 innings, but he was roughed up for nine hits and six runs, raising his ERA to 4.85 in the process. "The journey is always ongoing but I certainly havent felt like I did last year," Dickey said. "Theres some concrete reasons for that and theeres some reasons I need to iron out in the bullpen between outings.dddddddddddd" Adam Lind and Jose Bautista each collected three hits for the home team, while Emilio Bonifacio belted his second home run of the year. On Sunday, the Orioles will call on Miguel Gonzalez, who is 2-2 with a 4.25 ERA. He most recently had his strongest outing of the season, allowing five hits, no walks and two earned runs while striking out five in seven innings of work in a no-decision against the Yankees on May 21. Despite his modest numbers, Gonzalez has been a consistently reliable cog in the Orioles rotation. The right-hander has pitched into sixth inning in all seven starts and has yet to allow more than four earned runs in any outing. Gonzalez earned one of his two wins against the Blue Jays back on April 23, yielding five hits and three earned runs over six innings. Toronto will counter with Chad Jenkins, who was recalled in early May but has made just one appearance since. He made it count however, earning a win against the Red Sox on May 12, allowing two earned runs over five innings. Jenkins began the season on the DL in the minors and made just one start at Double-A New Hampshire before his call to the big club. The 2009 first-round pick made 13 appearances for the Blue Jays in 2012, going 1-3 with a 4.50 ERA. Baltimore took two of three from the Jays earlier in the year. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
