Guys have seen the replays but its one of those things. Air Max Canada Sale . It can happen to any team, said a crestfallen Graeme Cremer after Zimbabwe went down to New Zealand by 254 runs to concede the series 2-0 in Bulawayo. It would have been nice going into the last hour with a couple of wickets but these things happen. The disappointment was palpable considering Zimbabwe were at the receiving end of a few howlers during the series. ESPNcricinfo examines them:Sean Williams, first innings, first Test Neil Wagner hit Sean Williams on the helmet off his first delivery and broke his grille. A second bouncer followed. Williams, clearly hustled for pace, attempted a pull which lobbed off the helmet to Ish Sodhi at short midwicket. Williams stood until umpire Paul Reiffel gave him out. He walked off disappointed, but not before he gestured to his helmet in explanation.Prince Masvaure, first innings, first Test After saving Zimbabwes blushes with an 85-run ninth wicket stand with Donald Tiripano, Prince Mavaure would have been eyeing a maiden Test fifty. But his hopes were dashed when he played across the line to a Tim Southee delivery. Replays suggested the ball would have missed leg stump, but Reiffel didnt feel so.Craig Ervine, second innings, first Test Three balls after reaching his maiden Test fifty, Craig Ervine played inside the line to a Boult delivery that reversed back into him. There was a noise and Ervine was given out caught behind. But replays showed there was no nick. The ball was not close to the bat and the sound likely came from the bat hitting the pad. Debutant umpire Michael Gough made that call.Graeme Cremer, second innings, first Test Zimbabwes captain saw Sean Williams through to a century and had faced 130 balls himself, for 33. Cremer was picking the spin well until he tried to flick an Ish Sodhi legbreak but missed. He was hit above the knee roll and the ball would have sailed over the stumps, but Reiffel didnt think that way.Donald Tiripano, first innings, second Test His first Test efforts proved Donald Tiripano could bat, but his resistance was cut short in the second Test. Neil Wagner pitched a ball just outside leg, Tiripano missed an attempted nudge and was hit in front of leg stump. Reiffel gave him out despite the ball pitching outside the line of the stumps.Chamu Chibhabha, first innings, second Test The only time Zimbabwe benefitted from a decision was off the second ball on the third morning. Chamu Chibhabha and Tino Mawoyo had made sure they had not lost wickets the evening before, but Chibhabha should have been out when Boult got one to pitch in line, tail in late and hit him on the pads. Reiffel said not out even as the New Zealanders watched in dismay.Donald Tiripano, second innings, second Test For the second time in the match, Tiripano was at the receiving end of a poor call. He had batted 70 minutes of the final morning in an effort to save the game and was dealing well with seam and spin when Mitchell Santner, the left-arm spinner, bowled one that drifted in towards leg stump. The ball skidded on, without turning and would have missed leg stump. Umpire Reiffel clearly didnt see it that way.Craig Ervine, second innings, second Test At the stroke of lunch on the final day, Ervine seemed set to see out the session. Kane Williamson looked to get rid of an over by giving Martin Guptill a bowl. Ervine lunged forward to defend but missed a ball that turned. There no contact between bat and ball, although the bat may have hit the pad and made a sound. Reiffel gave Ervine out.Graeme Cremer, second innings, second Test Cremer had not managed to plant roots as he did in the first Test, but still had some hope of batting time, despite Zimbabwe being seven down after lunch. Guptill was turning the ball significantly and Cremer inside-edged one onto his pad. He was given out lbw by Reiffel.Prince Masvaure, second innings, second Test At the other end, with Zimbabwe in complete disarray, Prince Masvaure got down to defend a Sodhi ball the beat the inside edge and hit him on the pad. The ball lobbed up to Taylor, who claimed the catch at slip, and Masvaure was sent packing by Gough. Even assuming it was for an lbw, the ball would have comfortably missed leg stump. Discount Air Max . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. Air Max Canada Online .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. http://www.airmaxcheapcanada.com/ . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Each seasons winds brings change. The trees shed their leaves, flocks and herds migrate, and Dota 2 players look for new teams to take to the next Major. Though theres something to be said for the (relative) stability of the modern Dota 2 scene, there is still plenty of drama surrounding the roster shuffle before and after each International.Since the inception of the Majors system, the chaos has been more structured and reliable, but the post-International offseason alone had 447 different changes logged in the Majors registration database. Between players adding, joining, being dropped or just put on hold, this offseason was a major scramble. So who came out victorious, looking primed for the top, and who could use a second shuffle?The WinnersWings GamingWings is the softball answer to the question, keeping all five members of the TI6-winning roster on the same squad. These five would likely have little reason to want to leave. Its difficult to imagine if Zhang Faith_bian Ruidas oddball offlane picks or Li iceice Pengs massive support pool could translate well to any other squad in China, let alone the world. Theres always the post-TI curse to worry about, but unlike Alliance or Evil Geniuses, its unlikely anyone has fully downloaded Wings yet.Team LiquidLosing Adrian FATA- Trinks to a leave of absence and Jesse JerAx Vainikka to another European super-squad was difficult for Liquid. The two selected to take their spots, however, look to breathe some new life into the team. Amer Miracle- Al-Barkawi is a playmaker, able to offer a one-two punch with Lasse MATUMBAMAN Urpalainen in the core roles. Though Kanishka BuLba Sosale is most recently known for his offlane play, putting him in the four-five support role as a co-captain with Kuro Salehi KuroKy Takhasomi adds some synergy and unity to the team. Smart additions were made here, rather than risky pick-ups, and the current Team Liquid roster looks every bit as fearsome as it did at TI6.Team SecretThe third definite winner of the fall roster shuffle is one that made massive changes to the lineup. Losing three out of five players may look dire for most rosters, but Secret was already in the straits after consecutive disappointing performances in Manila and Seattle. Taking note of the big winners from TI6, Clement Puppey Ivanov and Johan pieliedie Astrom built around themselves a whos who of SEA titans. Former MVP players Pyo MP No-a and Lee Forev Sang-don, as well as Fnatics rising star Yeik MidOne Nai Zheng moved over to form a better SEA-cret. Its hard to know whether communication between teammates will become an issue, but this international roster certainly lives up to the Secret credo of all-star team.FnaticIt was hard to see Fnatic as a candidate for this category at the start of the roster shuffle. The organization parted ways with three players over the course of a week, leaving Chai Mushi Yee Fung with only an offlaner and plenty of spots to fill. In their place, though, Fnatic formed what might become one of the most intimidating rosters in the SEA region. Marc Polo Raven Luis Fausto, Nico eyyou Barcelon and Jimmy DeMoN Ho came over from a stellar TnC roster to fill the gaps, and now Fnatic looks even more promising than last year. The SEA region is steadily becoming a force to be reckoned with in international Dota, and Fnatic will be leading the charge with this lineup.The QuestionableOGA bubble team for the winners circle, OGs roster looks incredible on paper. Just looking at names like Gustav s4 Magnusson and JerAx, you have two top-tier European competitors. Add the relatively unknown Anathan ana Pham, and you have a talented young rookie looking to make a name for himself in mid lane - a situation that has led to breakout players in the past. Once you start to segment off the roles, though, some holes start to show up. Magnusson isnt a tournament-tested offlaner in a meta where offlane play has become critical to success. Pham could certainly make plays, but it could also leead to a similar situation to last years OG, where shutting down the mid means shutting down the team. Wholesale Air Max. Theres too many question marks with OG, and this roster will need a LAN or two under its feet before conclusions can really be drawn.Evil GeniusesThe third time could be the charm for prodigal son Artour Arteezy Babaev, who has certainly been a playmaker for the team in the past. Under the tutelage of Clinton Fear Loomis, a player-turned-coach for EG, Arteezy could be a whole new ... Arteezy. In previous tournaments, though, EG has typically relied on its veteran players to direct the squad; Syed SumaIL Hassan, Saahil UNiVeRsE Arora and Ludwig zai Wahlberg are talented, but the guiding hand of Loomis and departing captain Peter ppd Dager were key to many of EGs major victories. Andreas Franck Cr1t Nielsen, who comes over from OG to take Dagers role as both captain and five-role support, has big shoes to fill. Its a new dawn for EG, and it could go either way.Team NPSometimes, to have a good roster shuffle, you just have to make your own team. Built on a desire to avoid organizational issues and just build a team of players who want to play together, Team NP has a pretty intimidating lineup. Kurtis Aui_2000 Ling and Jacky EternaLEnVy Mao make for solid cores, and Theeban 1437 Silva returning to the five-role is great to see. The question marks are Arif MSS Anwar and Avery SVG Silverman, who have been on and off rosters with varying results, competing at mostly regional tournaments and qualifiers. The star power that left Secret is certainly enough to put NP on radars, but whether or not Anwar and Silverman step up will be a major factor in the success of the team.The LosersTnC GamingAfter an incredible run at The International, TnC Gaming set records and broke barriers for the Philippines. It was heartwarming to watch a region so often overlooked make such a massive run, finishing higher than any Filipino team before it. The offseason was not kind, though, as teams took notice, and one-by-one the stellar players of TnC dropped and considered offers. Though two players, Carlo Kuku Palad and Sam Sam_H Enojosa Hidalgo eventually returned, TnC was gutted by the offseason, and now has to compete with several SEA rosters who only grew stronger from the shuffle.LGD GamingThe Chinese teams dropped all their players from their rosters and it was a bit of a shock for most. It was initially intended to de-incentivize players from using free agency to negotiate better contracts, but in some cases, it led to mass dissolutions of rosters, and LGD felt it the most. Left with only Li Maybe Yao, a team formerly made up of superstars and veterans dissolved into a one-man show. The new LGD roster is made up of former CDEC.Youth and Vici Potential players, but this team lacks international experience. Recruited mostly from developmental squads with inconsistent performances, Yao and LGD Gaming will need a lot of practice and LAN experience built up to be a competitor at the next Major.CompLexity GamingThis one hurts a little, as coL has been a personal favorite of mine to watch grow. But if the TI wildcards were unkind to compLexity, the offseason was brutal. Losing both Blomdin brothers and Simon Handsken Haag left coL in a tenuous spot, in desperate need of some new talent. The team was lucky enough to find some in David Moo Hull, but the counterweights are Justin jk Rosselle and Mihai cancel Antonio, two players who are untested on the international stage and generally known for pub play rather than competitive achievements. A full revamp for coL is definitely what was needed for the struggling NA team, but the new roster will be working overtime to establish itself against not one, but two titans in the American scene in EG and DC. Look for Kyle melonzz Freedman in his new support role to be the leader and X-factor. ' ' '
