Upon touching down in Sri Lanka, Australia had received quite the reception. There were no cultural dances, as anyone was aware. No fruit drinks at the airport, nor the privilege of being daubed in the glorious palm sweat of one of the nations politicians.The welcome, instead, was sweetened by news of the ever-growing delegation of injured Sri Lanka seamers. Dushmantha Chameera would not rush Australia with his pace. Dhammika Prasads eyebrows would not haunt their nightmares. Having been unavailable for so many recent Tests, Suranga Lakmal also gallantly re-twinged his dodgy hamstring, like a musician obliging a swaying crowd with his greatest hit. Not long after, Nuwan Pradeep felt the peer pressure and followed suit.On the spin front, Jeffrey Vandersay had also busted a finger, but more importantly, Sri Lankas greatest player grinned himself over to the opposite camp, and cocked that Aussie-bashed elbow in the direction of his own team. One thing, comfortingly, did stay the same. Six years after Test retirement, Muttiah Muralitharan was still finding ways to get himself blamed for the spin-friendly nature of a Sri Lankan pitch.In addition, for Australia, there was a welcome banquet at their High Commission, kind words from the opposition captain, and a self-insertion and capitulation from Sri Lanka to set the series off. Short of having groundstaff fan their fielders with banana fronds, Australia had had the best possible welcome on a foreign tour.Sri Lanka, meanwhile, arrived with tattered recent records, an under-pressure captain, and arguably a better attack in triage than the one they have been forced to field. An Aussie whitewash, went many predictions. Others looked into the crystal ball of the islands cricket and saw, oh dear, the West Indies.Where then, six days into the series, did Angelo Mathews find the gall to run at Nathan Lyon and club him into the distance, second ball? Who signed off on a run rate north of four in the first 45 overs today? Who suggested a No. 3 batsman be made of Kusal Perera - who is only a recently reintegrated agent of lower-order slash and burn?It seems to be a solitary Test win that has made the difference. One great Pallekele innings and some quality spin bowling that has been the shot in the arm that has set adrenaline surging again.And it is in Mathews day one doings that this restored confidence was most apparent. In Pallekele he had plodded morosely to 15 and 9. In Galle, he hit two reverse sweeps in his first 19 balls, and loped to 35 at a strike rate over 100. In England, only restaurants that are fronts for criminal operations would have been caught up in so many terrible reviews. But in Galle, he had his highest scorer overturn an lbw decision, and late in the day, declined to refer speculative shouts from his bowlers.We have always wanted to bat reasonably positively, but the problem we have faced is that we hadnt got off to good starts and that has led to a defensive mindset, coach Graham Ford said after stumps. But we always want to play positively. Angelo is capable of playing spin bowling well. He tries and score off them and disrupt them. When I first started with Sri Lanka that was the general approach followed by Mahela Jayawardene, and no surprise Angelo has continued that. At times in England, Mathews had captained with all the zest and creativity of a tube light, but suddenly in Galle, his bowling changes began to seem inspired. Offpsinner Dilruwan Perera had been the worst of the frontline spinners in the first Test, but Mathews had him bowl at a charging David Warner, and eventually, drew the left-handers outside edge. Lunging forward, low to his left, Mathews held a very tough chance himself.With so much inexperience in this squad, which features two Kusals, two Pereras, two Fernandos, a Silva and a de Silva, it was easy to think the selectors had been so short of options theyd been forced to thumb through the phone book picking out clumps of names. But contributions came from all over this XI, which suggests a little belief has built. The openers glove-punched their way to the crease and made the customary head-shaking retreat to the pavilion soon after, but in Kusal Mendis and Pereras 108-run recovery, there was evidence of both grit and ability. In Dhananjaya de Silvas breezy strokes from No. 7, there were healthy signs of another decent player emerging.Sri Lanka will know they have hardly made a dent in Australias batting yet, but with Lakshan Sandakan as yet unloosed on a devious surface, and a half-decent score accrued, they will begin day two with optimism. A series victory seems far off, but for now at least they have competed. At the beginning of this tour, it is more than they were expected to do. Damion Ratley Jersey . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. Austin Corbett Jersey .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. http://www.cheapbrownsjerseys.us/ . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. Wholesale Cleveland Browns Jerseys 2019 . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. Cleveland Browns Jerseys For Sale . Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. Fantasy baseball has no such thing as an offseason.The 2016 regular season is scheduled to conclude Sunday, Oct. 2, or 11 days from now (plus any potential tiebreakers to decide playoff spots), and the playoffs 31 days later (if the World Series extends to seven games), but once the games are in the books -- and often sooner -- fantasy baseball owners begin analyzing next year.Well, championship-caliber fantasy owners do, at least. You can be sure that some of your competition is, and those are the owners who will have an advantage once spring training begins next February.Heres a good place to start: What follows below is my tri-annual Dynasty 250 rankings. They serve as a price guide of sorts for dynasty or keeper leagues, whether yours exists already or plans to start from scratch in 2017.The rankings formulaThe Dynasty 250 uses the following player valuation formula:2017 performance: 20 percent2018 performance: 20 percent2019 performance: 20 percent2020 performance: 20 percent2021 performance and beyond: 20 percentThe rationale for these weights is to provide a long-term projection of player values, in order to help fantasy owners in dynasty/keeper leagues who might be required to make critical roster decisions before the offseason arrives. For those in re-draft/single-year leagues, Ill have preliminary rankings for the 2017 season alone beginning next week, then updated regularly throughout the offseason. In addition, I -- and ESPN Fantasy as a whole -- will publish plenty of 2017 rankings, projections and profiles in the coming months to help you in your title quest next season. This page, however, is aimed at those fantasy owners who need to speculate further into the future.Remember that other factors influence these values, beyond simply your leagues scoring system. The list beelow is a starting point, but you need to do your own manual adjustments to account for the following:Number of keepers: How many players can you keep, and must every team keep the same number of players?Player pricing: Is your league draft or auction format, and do you keep players in the round they are picked, for the auction price paid, or are players simply kept without prices attached?Contract factors: Are there limits on the number of years you can keep a player and/or are there guaranteed contracts, and is there price inflation?Farm teams: Does your league include minor leaguers and how are these players factored into the keeper system?Team competitiveness: Are you a contender, rebuilder or something in between? At midseason a firm answer to this is much more crucial.ddddddddddddThe Dynasty 250Note: Position eligibility (Elig. Pos.) is projected for 2017 based on 2016 data through Sept. 20, and is determined based upon a minimum of 20 games or the position the player appeared at most often in 2016. Players projected future positions -- 2018 and beyond -- are considered in the ranking. Players listed ages are as of April 1, 2017.Players 2016 midseason (Mid 2016) and peak rankings in past keeper lists (Prv. Peak) are also provided: These lists have been published semiannually since 2010 and triannually since 2014, with preseason (Pre-), midseason (Mid) and end-of-season (End) designated to differentiate the different times of the years in question. For example, Johnny Cueto is listed with a peak of 55 in End 14, meaning that his best all-time rank was 55th, in the 2014 end-of-season list. A -- means that the player has never before made the top 250 cut.
