  • Cricket News Australia avoid 136-year low, Travis Head and Joe Burns slam centuries vs Sri Lanka

    first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Australia was reduced to 28/3 and it required a wonderful knock from Burns and Travis Head to restore the advantage for Tim Paine’s side. Burns was dropped on 34 by Dhananjaya de Silva off Dilruwan Perera and he made most of the chance. Heading into the lunch session, Australia made a tremendous fightback and Burns got good support from Head. The right-hander struck three fours in one over of Vishwa Fernando and he neared the milestone. Burns reached his century off Kasun Rajitha and the celebrations summed up the joy.Head also made great progress and he benefited from Dilruwan Perera’s drop off his own bowling and he made the bowler pay by slamming his maiden century with a drive through mid-off for a boundary. The partnership between Head and Burns decimated Sri Lanka and the duo notched up the 300-run partnership, the first time that an Australian batting partnership had registered a triple century stand ever since Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh in the Perth Test against England.Sri Lanka continued to drop catches and concede easy runs but the 308-run stand was broken when Head missed a flick and was trapped in front by Fernando for 161. Burns continued to make great progress as Australia scored close to 400 runs in a day. The Manuka Oval in Canberra is hosting a Test for the first time. However, the venue has already provided Australia some great moments. New Delhi: The Australian cricket team have undergone a terrible time in Test cricket in the last one year. They have lost series to South Africa, Pakistan and India. In the four-Test series against India, they suffered losses in Adelaide and Melbourne as they suffered a loss against an Asian side for the first-time ever at home. Ever since the Pakistan series in the UAE, only one Australian scored a century and that was Usman Khawaja who scored 141 in the Dubai Test. In the home series against India, no Australian scored a century while in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Brisbane, the century drought continued. Ahead of the Test in Brisbane, Australia were in danger of breaching a 136-year low.The last time Australia went without a Test century on home soil over a summer of three or more Tests was way back in 1882-83 against England. However, the century drought ended in grand style as Joe Burns registered his fourth century in his 16th Test and it represented a good return for a player who has dropped frequently from the Test side. highlights Manuka Oval is hosting a Test match for the first time ever.Joe Burns and Travis Head shared a 303-run stand for the fourth wicket.Burns and Head became the first Australian batsmen to score tons at home in this season.last_img read more

  • Wii U Mario Kart 8 bundle image leaks

    first_imgThe Wii U needs all the help it can get to shift units, and that’s why Nintendo is focusing on its much-loved first-party IP to sell the machine. The next game to get the Wii U treatment is Mario Kart 8 at the end of May. It looks great as the first Mario Kart to sport HD graphics, and it also looks like Nintendo is planning to bundle the game with the Wii U.An image has leaked of the box art for this new bundle. Nintendo isn’t confirming it exists of course, but does anyone really doubt that it does? In fact, I think gamers would be more surprised if Nintendo didn’t create this bundle as it just makes sense.The existing official bundles: one containing The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, and the other Mario & Luigi, both can be picked up for $299.99. I expect the Mario Kart 8 bundle complete with a 32GB black Wii U to match that price, especially as Nintendo has made it clear we won’t be seeing a hardware price drop before 2015. However, saying that, a $249.99 Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle would be great to kick off the summer with.If you already own a Wii U, then I’m sure Mario Kart 8 is on your buy list come May 30. The gameplay is more of the same (not a bad thing), but there are going to be anti-gravity sections to mix things up a bit. You can also play online against up to 11 other players, and use Mario Kart TV to share clips from races through Miiverse.Even if you don’t like the gimmicks that surround the racing, this is a 60fps game with HD graphics running on a Wii U. Highest quality game yet seen on the platform? Probably.last_img read more
