It was inevitable that Virat Kohli would make a big score at some point in the Test series against England, according to Michael Atherton. Cheap Soccer Jerseys China . The India captain ended day one of the second Test in Visakhapatnam unbeaten on 151 as he made England pay for dropping him when he was on 56.The hosts closed on 317-4 after James Anderson removed Ajinkya Rahane late on with the new ball, but Kohli remains and will be confident of adding to his tally on a batsman-friendly track. Virat Kohli finished day one unbeaten on 151 England were always going to feel the force of Kohlis bat at some stage, Atherton told Sky Sports. He didnt have a particularly good series against England in 2014 when Jimmy Anderson was all over him but it all came together nicely for him today.Hes on the back of runs in that Rajkot game, so hes feeling confident. Although hes not played a Test match here, in one-day [internationals] hes got a wonderful record at this ground and he won a good toss on an excellent pitch.He was in early because of those two wickets and really he couldnt have asked for nicer conditions to bat in than he had today. He played superbly.While Kohli will take the headlines, he was ably assisted for much of the day by Cheteshwar Pujara, who notched his third hundred in as many Tests before falling to Anderson for 119. Kohli (r) and Cheteshwar Pujara both hit centuries on the opening day The pair put on 226 for the second wicket with their contrasting styles drawing comparisons with another famous Indian duo.Pujara is a wonderful player too and I think they combine well together, that was their fourth 100 partnership in Test matches; he is a good foil for Kohli, Atherton added.Its a little bit like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid in years gone by. Tendulkar, as Kohli is now, is the big draw card - the man that everybody wants to come and see - but what you need down the other end is a guy who hasnt got a big ego and who isnt going to try and compete but who will get runs in whatever situation you find yourself in. The challenge now for England, argues Atherton, is to take the remaining six Indian wickets before the pitch begins to deteriorate to allow themselves a chance to bat while conditions are still favourable.The pitch will change more than Rajkot, its not as firm a pitch and therefore it feels as though the top will go, said Atherton. How quickly is the key question, of course.If India get 450, its going to be difficult for England. Itll probably stay fine tomorrow but if India can bat until tea-time tomorrow, itll probably start to go on that third day which is why the toss was so important. There wont be as much bounce as Rajkot but I think its going to spin more. The best of the action from Day One of the Second Test in Visakhapatnam How Anderson rocks up tomorrow will be interesting and Stuart Broad seems to have this issue with his right foot, he only bowled 11 overs today so it hasnt been an ideal day for England.Watch highlights of day one of the second Test between India and England on Sky Sports 2 from 2pm, then stay tuned for The Verdict at 3pm on the same channel.

Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. http://www.cheapjerseyssoccerauthentic.com/ . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. NEW YORK -- Members of Alex Rodriguezs inner circle obtained and leaked documents that implicated Ryan Braun and other players in using performance-enhancing drugs, "60 Minutes" reported Friday. Citing unidentified sources, the CBS news show said the leak occurred in February, days after the Miami New Times published documents implicating the Yankees star in the Biogenesis investigation. In the Miami New Times documents, the names of Braun and one of Rodriguezs teammates, catcher Francisco Cervelli, are redacted. "60 Minutes" reports that members of Rodriguezs camp obtained unredacted versions and leaked them to Yahoo! Sports. Rodriguezs lawyer, David Cornwell, denied the allegations to "60 Minutes." "The allegations are untrue and are another attempt to harm Alex -- this time by driving a wedge between Alex and other players in the game," he said in a statement to the show. "While Alex focuses on baseball and repeatedly states that he is going to respect the appeal process, the drumbeat of false allegations continues." Rodriguez has been suspended for 211 games through the 2014 season. He is allowed to play until a decision is issued by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, which is not expected until at least November. Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers slugger, accepted a 65-game suspension last month. All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Aug. 5 when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players, including Cervelli, for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distrributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. Authentic Soccer Jerseys. Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has repeatedly denied using them since. His penalty was more than double the previous high for a PED suspension. A-Rods drug penalty was for "his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years," MLB said. His punishment under the labour contract was for "attempting to cover up his violations of the program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioners investigation." Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday he thought the punishment was "eminently fair." "I have a job to do, and thats protecting the integrity of the game and enforcing it, and thats what Im going to do," he said. MLBs investigation began last year after San Francisco outfielder and All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera tested positive for elevated testosterone, as did Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. The inquiry escalated in January when the Miami New Times published documents obtained from former Biogenesis associate Porter Fisher that linked several players to the clinic. In June, baseball struck a deal for Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch to co-operate. After holding investigatory interviews with the players, MLB presented evidence to the players union along with its intended penalties, starting the final round of negotiations. ' ' '
