Jarred Vanderbilt Jersey . Tallawahs wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara, who captained Sri Lanka in the first Twenty20 International played in the USA at the same facility in 2010, has said the CPL could help the growth of cricket in USA.Its very exciting to be back, Sangakkara said at the Tallawahs first press conference in Lauderhill on Friday. I remember when we played New Zealand here in 2010, [it was] two very competitive games and I think it finished one-all and we enjoyed our time here.To bring cricket back to Fort Lauderdale, to be here at Broward Park to play again is just about making sure the game is exposed to new viewership, to encourage new spectators to come and watch what happens on a cricket field, to watch the differences between cricket and baseball and to hopefully better understand it and hopefully grow to like it enough to actually experiment playing it.The first experience for Sangakkara did not provide the fireworks that were billed to new fans, with scores under 100 in three of four innings, and a total of four sixes hit during the two games. Two years later, West Indies posted 209 for 2 against new Zealand, a record total at the time.However, it has been four years since high-level cricket has been played at the facility. In its absence, soccer has been a primary tenant, resulting in the square being dug up and relaid. New Zealand curator Mark Perham has been brought in to work on the pitches.The pitch looks pretty good and by the reports that we hear over the years theres been a lot of improvement done, Sangakkara said. A new curator has been doing a lot of hard work trying to get it up to standard and by the scores of the subsequent matches played after we were here it seems all pretty good.We hope that the crowds do come in and the ordinary American comes in and has a look to see what its all about. It could be just a case of curiosity, or it could be that theyve heard of it before or watched it on TV once or twice maybe but crowd participation is absolutely important to any sport. Its absolutely vital. Thats what the players play for, to play in front of a packed stadium, having kids and families come and watch. Thats what I think drives us or any sport higher.Sangakkara toured the USA in November last year as part of the Cricket All-Stars series. The largest crowd of the three games featured 27,000 people at Citi Field in New York City. Although the Central Broward Regional Park has a capacity of 10,000, Sangakkara said it will be as good for the fans due to the facility being designed for cricket.Either way its got to be entertaining, Sangakkara said. Whether its 10,000 in a small stadium where it feels as if its a much larger crowd because it gets noisier and the atmosphere is a little more intense. In baseball stadiums we played in, there were a huge amount of people there but they were far removed from the action because of how the stadium is configured. Either way I think its all about getting smiles on their faces, making sure that when they walk away after three and a half hours they walk away with good memories. China Nuggets Jerseys . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. Thomas Welsh Jersey . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. The Los Angeles Rams hope a change of coasts and a slumping opponent will change their fortunes Sunday when they travel to face the New York Jets (1 p.m. ET, FOX).After a 3-1 start put them on top of the NFC West, the Rams (3-5) are riding a four-game losing streak.The Jets (3-6) are last in the AFC East, and there are rumors of discipline issues leaking from inside the teams facilities.Both the Rams and the Jets need a victory this weekend. The winner may be able to salvage its record. The loser simply will be digging the hole deeper on what would be a lost season.Both franchises have issues at the quarterback position. Both teams stuck with journeymen veterans instead of turning the reins over to younger players who were high draft picks.The Jets re-signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a free agent contact after the well-traveled Harvard product had a career year for the team in 2015. Fitzpatrick has not produced close to those same statistics in 2016 and already was benched once this season.Quarterback Geno Smith replaced Fitzpatrick for a start but got injured. The Jets also have young QBs Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg waiting in the wings.Fitzpatrick missed a series in a loss to the Miami Dolphins last week due to a knee sprain, and is listed as questionable to play against the Rams.Petty looked solid in his stead, and that at least has coach Todd Bowles thinking about making a switch.If (Fitzpatrick) misses a significant amount of (practice) time, then Bryce will play (this week), Bowles said.The coach termed Fitzpatrick as a game-time decision on Friday. Fitzpatrick, who was limited in practice all three days this week, threw two costly interceptions against Dolphins, giving him 13 picks against just eight touchdown passes this season, so many Jets fans are hoping to get an extended look at Petty.The Rams drafted quarterback Jared Goff first overall in this years draft, only to have him sit and watch Case Keenum play below average. Even with a Los Angeles fan base booing during last weeks loss to the Carolina Panthers, coach Jeff Fisher continues to hedge on making a change.Case is starting. Jared is improving, Fisher said. I keep saying that as you gguys keep asking the questions, hes improving. Cheap Womens Nuggets Jerseys. But for right now, Case is starting, and were going to New York. But, Case right now, especially against this (Jets) defense, gives us our best chance. Its an extremely complicated defense, and they can pressure the quarterback, they can do anything they want to do. Theyre very, very talented. Our focus is this week against the Jets, and Case will be under center.The New York defense that Fisher raves about is in disarray due to discipline problems.Two of the stars of the unit, defensive ends Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, were benched to start the Dolphins game for being late or missing team meetings. Bowles called the benching of the two starters a coachs decision, but both players acknolwedged the reports were true.Despite the issues and the praise Fisher heaps on the unit, the Jets defense is struggling. New York ranks 26th in the NFL in points allowed at 26.1 a game.The Jets pass defense is not playing well, and cornerback Darrelle Revis looks like a shell of his old self. New York is 22nd in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game at 272.2 per contest. The secondary has given up over 300 yards passing in four games this season. One solace for the unit is that Keenum has only one 300-plus-yard passing game this year.The Rams running attack was supposed to be dominant thanks to second-year player Todd Gurley. That has not come to fruition, and the ground game actually has regressed. Gurley has no 100-yard rushing games this season. Do not look for that trend to be broken against the Jets. Even with Wilkerson and Richardson missing time, the Jets are fourth in the NFL in run defense, allowing only 81 yards on the ground.Los Angeles ranks 31st in total offense.(Three) weeks ago, we were one of the top offenses, Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin said. The last two weeks, we kind of fell a little short. Now theyre saying were the worst. It really doesnt make a difference to us. These last eight games, were going to come out week by week and try to go as hard as we can.
