Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsMumbai: Virat Kohli may be going through a purple patch of his international career but England fast bowler James Anderson took a slight dig saying that if Indian captain’s technical glitches any aren’t visible it is because of the helpful Indian tracks which lack pace and movement File photo of James Anderson and Virat Kohli AFP Anderson had made Kohli his bunny back in 2014 during the series in England in which the batsman was repeatedly nicking away going at deliveries outside the off-stump With nearly 700 runs in this series Kohli has punished England the most Asked what has changed in Kohli’s technique the seasoned Anderson’s answer wasn’t a charitable one "I am not sure if he (Kohli) has changed I just think any technical deficiencies he has got are not in play out here The wickets just take that out of the equation There is not that pace in the wicket to get the nicks like we did against him in England – with a bit more movement" said England’s highest ever wicket-taker in Test matches "When that (pace and movement) is not there he (Kohli) is very much suited to playing in these conditions He is a very good player of spin – and if you are not bang on the money and don’t take your chances he will punish you" Anderson did not hide what he felt about Kohli’s technique on a day when the skipper scored a career-best 235 But the veteran admitted that they could not execute their plans against Jayant Yadav despite being aware that he is a very capable batsman "We plan for every batsman – from Nos 1 to 11 We have played three Tests now against Yadav so it is no surprise – we knew he can bat very competently We had plans for him Sometimes they don’t come off; sometimes you don’t execute your plans well enough as was the case today I thought he played exceptionally well" Anderson lauded the rookie all-rounder He is hoping against hope that the England lower order will script a dramatic turnaround on the final day to save the visitors from another embarrassing defeat "We are going to come here tomorrow and try to fight our way back into this game if we can We are 50 runs behind If we can bat with the positive intent we showed today there’s no reason why we can’t get a hundred ahead of them and then try to put some pressure on them with the ball" said Anderson after England had ended Day 4 at 182 for six still needing to make 49 runs to make the hosts bat again Anderson conceded that their bowling in the morning was below par which enabled India to score 128 runs in 29 overs before lunch "It is immensely frustrating Coming to the ground this morning needing to get three wickets with them 50 ahead if we could get them we are still well in the game Unfortunately we didn’t bowl as well as we could have first thing" he said "The ball started flying around this morning and then they got settled and managed to put on a big partnership" added England’s highest Test wicket-taker Although his team’s top batsmen have found the Indian spin bowlers hard to tackle Anderson said it can be done as was shown by Joe Root in his classy innings of 77 and Jonny Bairstow who was unbeaten on 50 at stumps "I am not sure if they are too difficult to handle They are obviously world class spinners but we knew the task ahead when we came over here We knew it was going to be difficult "But I enjoyed watching Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow bat I thought they did it with real positive intent and showed you can still score runs out there" he said "We hope that is a given the lads down the order a bit of confidence going into tomorrow – because we’re certainly not going to be trying to bat out for a draw If we are going to keep this series alive we’re going to have to try to get past them and try to put some pressure on in the fourth innings" said Anderson at the cost of sounding impractical Asked whether the England spinners had improved Anderson complimented leggie Adil Rashid "Adil for me has been the biggest improvement Certainly he’s shown he can be England’s frontline spinner in the future" Asked about his own performance in the series Anderson said he was quite happy with the way he had bowled since returning after his injury lay off but not with the meagre returns in terms of wickets "I have been happy with the way I have bowled but not happy with the amount of wickets I have got That happens – especially in these conditions It is tough I would have liked more wickets" said the fast bowler who has taken just four wickets in three Tests he has played in the series so far By: PTI | Los Angeles | Published: December 30 2015 1:03 pm Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner both 43 are discovering that living with an ex can be rather challenging Related

classes with a resourceful performance against Cuellar (28-2) Top News Abner Mares raised his hands in victory right before the final bell and he dropped to his knees in relief moments later A few months after his boxing career appeared to be in jeopardy he was a champion again Mares knocked down Jesus Cuellar in the 11th round and hung on for a split-decision victory Saturday night to claim Cuellar’s WBA featherweight title “I’m so glad to be called a world champion again” Mares said “It means the world to me” Mares (30-2-1) earned his fourth world title in three weight classes with a resourceful performance against Cuellar (28-2) The powerful Argentine champion hadn’t lost in 11 fights since October 2011 but Mares punctuated his effort with a big right hand early in the 11th round sending the champion sprawling onto his backside Two judges favored Mares 117-110 and 116-111 while a third scored it for Cuellar 115-112 The Associated Press scored it 115-112 for Mares Jermall Charlo also defended his IBF 154-pound belt with a fifth-round stoppage of previously unbeaten Julian Williams at the downtown Galen Center on USC’s campus The third title defense for Charlo (25-0 19 KOs) ended uncomfortably with the crowd loudly booing him after he refused to accept congratulations from Williams (22-1-1) Mares returned from a 16-month ring absence following two losses in his previous five fights including the only stoppage defeat of his 12-year pro career Neither Cuellar nor Mares had fought in 2016: They were scheduled to meet in June but the fight was scrapped after the New York athletic commission refused to sanction it when Mares couldn’t pass an eye examination Mares has had eye issues during his career but they didn’t stop him from becoming a three-division champion with a solid following in the Los Angeles area where the Mexican-born dual citizen grew up The fight was the ninth major title bout of Mares’ career and he showed his championship tenacity with a clever game plan that showcased his boxing skill Mares fought more efficiently than Cuellar landing 35 percent of his 619 punches and 41 percent of his power shots Cuellar the Argentine veteran trained by Freddie Roach attacked Mares from the opening round but the champion’s predictability allowed Mares to pick his shots while edging several early rounds Cuellar’s superior power showed up later and turned the fight in his direction _ before Mares replied emphatically in the 11th Mares battered Cuellar on the ropes moments after the knockdown Cuellar recovered but Mares persevered through a solid 12th to win it “Cuellar was a little flat” Roach said “Abner had a good strategy He moved and he held and it worked Abner was the better man” Charlo is a Houston-based fighter whose twin brother Jermell also holds a 154-pound belt On the biggest stage of his still-young career Jermall Charlo followed up an impressive knockout with a bit of churlish behavior in the ring Charlo first showed off his considerable skill knocking down Williams with a precise left jab in the second round Williams a Philadelphia native in his first title fight recovered from the knockdown and even staggered Charlo later in the round Charlo kept working and eventually finished Williams putting the challenger face-down on the canvas with an uppercut before finishing it moments later But when Charlo declined to accept Williams’ walk across the ring to offer post-fight congratulations the fighters’ camps exchanged harsh words and the Los Angeles crowd booed Charlo vociferously “No matter what people have to respect my accomplishments” Charlo said through the boos “He just wasn’t on my level I told everyone what I was going to do since the fight was announced” Charlo might have tarnished his reputation but his actions also undeniably raised his profile in the competitive 154-pound division Charlo jumped on the ropes to egg on the crowd _ but he also apologized later catching
