Many of them may not remember Gary Joseph Pratt–The hero of the iconic “Ponting Run Out” which paved the way for the English Victory in the 4th test of the Ashes 2005.Coming to Gary he plays cricket for cumbris currently and he is a good Off-Break Bowler who can turn the ball and a very good batsman who has a century feather in his cap in the First Class/County Matches.He scored 1,055 runs in a calendar year in the first class games his top score was 150 in a match against Northhamtonshire but that was way back in 2003 after that Gary did not have a very good form to impress the selectors but however he is playing a Good game so I hope I can see him back soon
Ponting’s Run Out:
This is the important thing that made Gary very famous.It was during the 4th ashes test match when Australia were on control and Poting was looking for a big score but it was too late for ponting to reach home when the Ligtning Tracer Bullet throw by Gary from short cover disturbed the timber and this made Australia lose a very strong position and resulted in their defeat.This made ponting shout at the English dressing room when he was walking towards the Pavillion seeing Duncan Fletcher and other English Players for making a twelfth man enter the field—Actually the twelfth man came to the field due to a genuine injury to “Simon Jones”
Where is Gary Now????:
See the “Irony of fate” Gary is now working in a container company transporting heavy things like cars etc., and he is the driver of that lorry but I believe he hasn’t lost his cricket touch till now because he plays some cricket for cumbria even now and it should be ok for him to start and play his natural game when he makes a comeback to the English cricket team.Will Gary be back!!!??Only time has to answer this question
Mr.Ponting to me twelfth man when he enters a field he is also a player so please do not give lame excuses for your “Run Out”

The Game of Power
Hi there—here is a review of the Wimbeldon semifinals..The Highlights of today was a good and competent match which took place between the British man Andy Murray and the American Andy Roddick..It was a match between Power and Determination—It finally turned to be Roddick’s day and my commiserations to Andy Murray who played a more or less equivalent game of Roddick but he wasn’t just able to resist the Thunderbolt serve of Roddick in the 4th set Tie Breaker but do not get me wrong he(murray)is a wonderful player with Subtle shots who can beat even the Best Player in this World on his day–
Thing I like with Murray–His serve return and the slicy Backhand
Things I like with Roddick–Probably the toughest serve to take is Roddick’s Serve and he plays net well
This was a superb match I saw eventhough it lasted only 4 sets one of the better match I have seen in this tournament which delineated the Will power and Quality tennis these chaps had.
Scores:6-4 ,4-6, 7-6(7), 7-6(5)
Murray you have a lots of challenges ahead so come fast I am expecting you to be crowned in US/AUSSIE open
I would like to mention one other Important person who actually have the same will power and determination like Andy Murray it is none other than Nadal but Unfortunately Nadal Pulled out of wimbeldon at the last minute due to Injury but I would say he is the Greatest Fighter the Game of tennis has ever seen
In the other match Roger Federer defeated Tommy Haas and it was a very clean finish in three sets–I don’t have much to write about this but the other one was simply fantastic rush to youtube and see if you can pull out some of the clippings–
The williams’ sisters will meet in their finals of the Ladies Singles Wimbeldon lets see who is going to snatch the coveted trophy

The Los Angeles lakers does it in Style later in 1980's
LA LAKERS had a last moment of victory and a defeat as well in the NBA(US National Basketball Association) title clash.In 1966 they had a very sad loss against to Boston Celtics going down 1-3,Lakers then held to Boston and beat celtics twice to enforce the seventh game.Celtics beat Lakers 93-95 for their eighth consecutive title.And it was Lakers’s fourth consecutive loss to celtics in final
Lakers Bounce back in 1988:
But all of a sudden in the year 1988 all of the rancor and fire the Lakers had were proving to be working well for the Lakers.Initially they were 2-3 down to the Detroit Pistons but in Game Six,they came back from a three point deficit with Just a Minute to go for the final Judgement Bell.With Two Free throws “The Spire Man of Basketball”–Kareem Abdul jabbar took them ahead and won 103-102 with 14 seconds left in the Game(It would have been a real nailbiter I tell you).And in Game seven,James Worthy’s superb performance(36 Points) brought Victory for Lakers 108-105.Kareem Abdul Jabbar has also won NBA Most Valuable Player award when he was at the top of his game.
For more details on Great Kareem abdul Jabbar visit this Post in the same Weblog where I wrote about the “The Spire man of Basketball”

You cannot miss this man in the Court even if you are in a half slumber not only because of his 7ft2 height but for his gumptious and never give up Policy in the court.Born as Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor he had great interest in Athletics and he was also considered to be one of the Best Player to have played the NBA.While studying in the School his team held one of the Stupendous Record by a School in the state championship by winning 72 consecutive games.
Born on April 16th 1947 his father was in departmental store as a Price checker.He was raised as a Roman Catholic before his conversion to Islam in his college days.And he won surplus game for his school at his young age and was Portrayed as a Child with Supernatural powers because of his belligerence in the Court when he represented his school.
College Days and Conversion to Islam:
In his early college days Alcindor and the UCLA Bruins faced the Houston Cougars and this match->”Game of the Century” was the first ever Basketball match widely telecasted in the televison.And the result of the match is bruins Unprecedented winnign streak of 47 games was brought to an end and on Alcindor’s side the Dearth was ended.
On his conversion to Islam he said to the Playboy Magazine that he had a great devotion to Islam from his early childhood days and he got converted when he started to think that The Time Has Come.
He Married Janice Brown who later became Habiba Abdul Jabbar they had three children daughters Habiba and Sultana and son Kareem.
Abdul-Jabbar was well known for his trademark “sky hook” a shot in which he made his supple body bend like a Copper wire and Makes it reach the basket Safely.
Currently he is serving as a Coach and visiting coach to many Leading clubs like Lakers Eagles etc.,
He was named as the greatest college Basketball Player of all time by ESPN.

I would like to Expose you what is said to be THE MOST UNDIGNIFIED INCIDENT in the History of Cricket.Mr.Lillee couldn’t Tolerate when Miandad Turned him down for a Single to Square Leg.And While Miandad is On the way for Completing a Easy Run Lillee kicked Miandad while returning to the Top of his bowling mark.And Aroused Miandad Lifted his Bat so as to off Lillee and created a SAGA.After which after TV Replays Showed Lillee was found guilty and he was the one who started it….And would you Believe It he was not effaced of the ICC or Censured Instead he escaped with Just 120$ fine and a 2 Match ban for Kicking a Player—– “wantedly”…
Do you Think that the ICC are partial to Australia from early days of Cricket?????
Give your gossips here —————-
