Alastair Cook fell to the final ball on day four to deflate Englands spirited fightback in the second Test in Visakhapatnam. Fake Soccer Jerseys . Having been set 405 to win and five sessions to bat by India, Cook (54) led from the front, battling for 188 deliveries, and sharing in a 75-run stand across 50 overs with opening partner, Haseeb Hameed (25). Watch the best of the action from day four of the second Test in Visakhapatnam But with Hameeds 144-ball vigil ended by Ravichandran Ashwin to a delivery that cruelly kept low and trapped him lbw, Cook too was trapped in front, to the final ball of the day from Ravindra Jadeja as England closed on 87-2.Earlier, the tourists bowled India out for 204 in their second innings; Stuart Broad (4-33) and Adil Rashid (4-84) bowling brilliantly in the morning session as India lost their last seven wickets for 87 runs. Watch Ben Stokes two spectacular catches in the second Test to dismiss Virat Kohli Virat Kohli - unbeaten on 56 overnight and searching for a second century in the game - fell to Rashid for 81, with Ben Stokes taking a stunning diving catch at slip.But it was Broad - still with lingering concerns over a foot injury sustained earlier in the Test - who claimed the first wicket to fall, getting Ajinkya Rahane (26) gloving to Cook at slip.Ashwin was then given out lbw to the Nottinghamshire quick soon after, only for the decision to be overturned on review due to a thick inside edge, but there were no complaints when Broad had him out caught behind an over later. Stuart Broad was back among the wickets for England despite injury (Credit: AFP) Rashid swiftly got in on the act, claiming the next four wickets as India slipped from 98-3 overnight to 162-9. v Live Test Cricket India vs England November 21, 2016, 3:45am Sky Sports 2 HD Get a Sky Sports Pass Upgrade to Sky Sports Wriddhiman Saha didnt pick Rashids googly and fell lbw, while Stokes helped the legspinner claim the key wicket of Kohli with his sensational grab.After Rashid added the scalps of Jadeja and Umesh Yadav, a final-wicket stand of 42 between Jayant Yadav (27no) and Mohammed Shami (19) frustrated England and took Indias lead over 400 before Moeen Ali finally ended the innings and the first session, with Shami out stumped.After lunch, Englands openers successfully blunted the Indian attack for a session, although Hameed was roughed up by a couple of short balls from Umesh - one rapping him on the glove, and the other hitting him in the chest.Undeterred, he and Cook saw England safely through a largely chanceless afternoon session, though that changed after tea as Indias spinners began to threaten. Haseeb Hameed is desperately unlucky to fall lbw to a ball that keeps really low Cook survived two close lbw reviews - the first from Jadeja which was shown to be clipping leg stump but stayed with the umpires call, while the second against Ashwin just struck him outside the line of off-stump.Hameed sadly didnt benefit from the same good fortune, as he fell to Ashwin (1-28) soon after, while India finally claimed Cook just before the close to further deflate England.Live coverage of the second Test between India and England from Visakhapatnam continues with day five, on Sky Sports 2 from 3.45am on Monday.

The defeat leaves the 41-year-old Nestor to concentrate on the mixed-doubles event after winning 12 straight matches and winning Australian titles in Brisbane and Sydney with two different partners. "This was a little bit of a let down, but all credit to them," said Nestor. Cheap Soccer Jerseys . Calgary finished atop the CFL standings with a 14-4 record and earned the right to host the West Division final at McMahon Stadium on Nov.GREEN BAY, Wis. - Despite having their five-game winning ended, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers still control much of their post-season destiny.Now if they can just get their offence to look as it did for most of the season.Even after the worst statistical performance of Rodgers career, the Packers (10-4) still have solid playoff prospects — if they win their final two games.Doing so would give them the NFC North title.That would mean winning at Tampa Bay next Sunday and then beating the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field on Dec. 28.But first, Rodgers and the rest of the Packers offence need to get back on track.In Sundays 21-13 loss to the Bills, Rodgers was 17 of 42 — the 25 incompletions were a career high — for 185 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions for a passer rating of 34.3, the lowest mark of his career.He entered the game as the NFLs highest-rated passer (119.0) with 35 touchdown passes and only three interceptions.I know Aaron didnt feel very good the way it panned out, coach Mike McCarthy said Monday, as the Packers turned their attention to the Buccaneers (2-12) and a trip to Tampa, Fla., where Rodgers is 0-2 as a starter.(But) I look for him to have a big game in Tampa.Rodgers did not speak to reporters during Mondays availability session — his scheduled day is Wednesday — but he reiterated McCarthys stance on the playoff picture and took the blame for the loss after the game.It wasnt my best day by any stretch of the imagination, Rodgers said. Ive got to play better for us to win, and I expect more of myself.(But) everything is right in front of us. We win out, we still win the North. Were a tough team, a good football team, and we just didnt play very well on offence.No, they didnt. Against a Bills defence that hasnt alllowed a touchdown passing in the past four games, Rodgers didnt get much help from his receivers, who by the coaches count dropped nine passes. Replica Soccer Jerseys . We had all sorts of chances and just didnt make them, for whatever reason, said leading receiver Jordy Nelson, who dropped what could have been a 94-yard touchdown when he was wide open late in the third quarter.Obviously, my drop could have won the game for us. Weve got to make those no matter how easy or hard they are.A second loss to the Lions, who havent won a game in Wisconsin since 1991, would give them the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Packers.Having won all seven of their home games this season, McCarthy, Rodgers and others have acknowledged that the No. 1 overall seed and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs is their goal. But the loss to the Bills made that more difficult for Green Bay.After entering Sundays game as the leagues highest-scoring offence, the Packers failed to score multiple touchdowns for the first time since their Week 3 loss at Detroit.Offensive co-ordinator Tom Clements was brusque in his answers to questions about Rodgers and the offence.It just wasnt working, Clements said. We didnt play as well as we had been playing. You have to give them credit. They won the game, they scored more points than we did, but we certainly werent at our best.NOTES: McCarthy did not have an update on right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who suffered a concussion against the Bills. Clements, however, said, I think Bryan will be available. ... Cornerback Davon House, who suffered a shoulder injury against Atlanta on Dec. 8, said he wont play Sunday but is praying to return for the finale against the Lions.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
