    导出博客文章John Gleeson, the former Australia spinner, has died at the age of 78 in Tamworth, New South Wales. Cheap Celtics Jerseys .Gleeson was Australias 242nd Test cricketer and played 29 matches between 1967 and 1972. He took 93 wickets at an average of 36 with three five-wicket hauls. Gleeson also claimed 430 first-class wickets in a 116-match career between 1966 and 1975, predominantly for New South Wales.Hes sadly passed away in the Tamworth hospital, aged 78, the former Australia captain Ian Chappell relayed to viewers during Channel Nines coverage of a Matador Cup game.Gleeson was one of the early unorthodox spinners, delivering with an unusual action like Australias Jack Iverson before him and Sri Lankas Ajantha Mendis decades later. The folded finger-spinner they called him, Chappell said. He came from Tamworth, started out his cricket life as a wicketkeeper and he fiddled around flicking these balls … I think he started with a table tennis ball, and developed into a very fine finger spinner.I spoke to him the other day, hed come to grips with his situation and his last words were to me, Dont fret, mate, Im in good shape.A late starter to first-class cricket at 27, Gleeson had honed his method for years prior, experimenting with various grips in backyard cricket ater being partly inspired by fellow mystery spinner Iverson. The first time I saw it was a photograph in a 1951 Sporting Life magazine, he said of Iversons grip in a 2008 interview. I would bowl with the same grip with a tennis ball in backyard cricket, with a jacaranda tree as the wicket. It was quite natural for me to bowl a legspinner even if it looked like an offspinner - it was basically a reverse wrongun: looks like an offspinner but is a legspinner.Gleeson worked his way into the New South Wales state side and ultimately the Australian Test team after impressing Richie Benaud in a net session in the summer of 1966-67. He always remained somewhat miffed by the hype that surrounded his bowling style, which was a forerunner to other more lateral methods of spinning the ball that would follow in later years around the cricket world. His path to the Test side was to be smoothed by another net session, in Adelaide where he bowled to the then selection chairman Sir Donald Bradman.He stood there, in his suit, at the batting crease, without a bat. I ran up and bowled. To get the ball to turn a fair bit I had to bowl a lot slower than I normally did, Gleeson said. I bowled him that ball [an off break] and he tried to let it hit the net, but it went the other way, flew up, and hit him on the hip. His eyes lit up and he just picked the ball up and threw it back to me. Next ball, I bowled him the wrongun and then he wasnt quite sure which way to go as he wasnt reading from the hand.James Sutherland, the Cricket Australia chief executive, said: John captured the imagination of cricket fans everywhere as he bamboozled batsmen with his odd bowling grip, borrowed from another mystery Australian spinner, Jack Iverson.We were deeply saddened to hear of Johns passing and are truly appreciative of his contribution to the game, which, beyond his distinguished playing career, included time as an administrator with World Series Cricket. As a cricketer, he will be remembered as someone who played for his country at the highest level and, with his unique skills, had the ability to regularly dumbfound the best batsmen in any team.

The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. RIO DE JANEIRO --?As Jason Kenny rode his victory laps after winning the keirin, he was met on the side of the track by his fiancée Laura Trott, who was still coming to terms with her omnium triumph.?I couldnt hear a word she was saying to be honest, Kenny later said. She was bawling her eyes out but that was nice to share that moment with the people you love.Kennys victory in the keirin at the third attempt -- after two false dawns ended by the riders prematurely overtaking the derny -- means he is now level with Sir Chris Hoy at the top of British Olympics medal royalty.Trott watched on nervously biting her fingernails and then allowed the tears to pour as her fiancé?waved to the adoring crowd having just secured his sixth Olympics gold.Between them they have 10 Olympics golds; they are British sports record-breaking super couple.Theirs is a tale of unparalleled cycling success with their stars firmly in the stratosphere of British sporting immortality. Further honours are likely to follow.Trott is now in a pantheon of greatness all to herself. No other British woman has ever hit that four-gold threshold but it is likely to never fully sink in.The whole experience of the Olympics is compartmentalised and instead when Trott is pedalling hell for leather around the velodrome here in Rio de Janeiro, she imagines being her younger self again, cycling for fun in the garden alongside her mother and sister.I still feel like that eight-year old who was cycling around because she loved it, she said. This all blows my mind.Ten years on from her first cycling endeavours, aged 18, the prodigy was fast-tracked into the Great Britain squad for the 2011 Apeldoom World Championships and despite an 11th place finish in the omnium, she was part of the victorious team pursuit team.Then came London 2012 where she was one of the faces of the Games alongside the man she would later become engaged to.Now in 2016, between them they have 32 world, Olympic, European and Commonwealth gold medals. They live life in fast-forward and its unlikely to slow down.They are etched into British Olympics history and will surely soon be crowned Sir Jason and Dame Laura though those thoughts are greeted with nervousness and a sense of bewilderment amid their glory.

I never really target things like that.Talk of knighthood doesnt sit easily on Kennys shoulders, either. Obviously that would be amazing, he said. Ive been to the palace twice now; I got an MBE and OBE. Its really special but that would be ridiculous.But at the heart of their individual and respective team success is the most charming of partnerships.Jason puts up with so much rubbish from me, on a daily basis, Trott said. We go through so many highs and lows. It could be difficult when one of us is going well and the other isnt doing quite so well.But we are there for each other and because he does go through the same things I do, its great as he knows what to say. Its been such a massive help for me.Neither are attention-hungry, quite the opposite. Kenny relishes being in the media shadows rather than the spotlight, calling himself a miserable sod, but together they have willed each other on to sporting greatness.We support each other as best we can, as most couples do, Kenny said. I think the thing is that we understand when to step back and let them have a rant.Certainly Laura loves a good rant and we support each other. We do train occasionally together, which is nice, but the thing is that we get to share these moments together.Usually you get to see your parents for two minutes after the race and thats what most people are used to -- a quick hug then off to the ceremony and the anti-doping. But its nice to be able to share the special movements.The Kennys and Trotts may have to get a deal on suits and dresses: they have a wedding to plan and almost certainly a trip to the palace.But dont expect it to change them -- they want to continue willing each other on to further golds while living in anonymity, preferring to walk their dog in the Cheshire countryside than adorning billboards.And therein, perhaps, lies the secret of their success.
