Reigning World T20 champions Sri Lanka coped with the absence of injured Lasith Malinga as Tillakaratne Dilshan inspired the side to a six-wicket win over qualifiers Afghanistan in Kolkata. Adidas Originals Shoes Sale . Rangana Herath (2-24) took up the mantle with the ball after Malinga, afflicted by a knee strain in recent months, missed out on selection, with Afghanistan posting 153-7 thanks largely to captain Asghar Stanikzais career-best 62 off 47 balls.Dilshan (83no from 56) then collected his 13th fifty in T20I cricket - a record he shares with Chris Gayle (West Indies), Brendon McCullum (New Zealand) and Virat Kohli (India) - and mowed three sixes as Sri Lanka eased home with seven balls to spare following the openers pull for four.Afghanistans innings hinged on Stanikzai after beefy opener Mohammad Shahzad, fresh from totals of 61, 41, and 40 in the qualification stage, holed out for eight and Mohammad Nabi, who hit 52 last time out against Zimbabwe, went lbw for three to leave the score on 51-4.Stanikzai clobbered back-to-back sixes off slow left-armer Milinda Siriwardana in the 13th over and four maximums in total, the 29-year-old sharing a stand of 61 from 31 balls with Samiullah Shenwari (31 from 14) for the fifth wicket while amassing his highest score in T20I cricket. Asghar Stanikzai hit four sixes in his career-best 62 Stanikzai perished attempting a ramp shot - becoming one of Thisara Pereras (3-33) scalps -  but helped his side biff 104 runs from the final 10 overs, with Najibullah Zadran (12no from three) adding gloss at the death with a monstrous six over cover and a meaty four through the same region. Dilshan and Dinesh Chandimal (18) , though, unleashed some lavish strokes of their own - the former nailing a six over fine leg with his famed Dil-scoop - as Sri Lanka put on 41 for the first wicket before Nabi had Chandimal pouched at midwicket from his second delivery.Sri Lanka teased a wobble when Lahiru Thirimanne (six) dragged teenage spinner Rashid Khan on, wicketkeeper Shahzad ran out Perera (12) and Nabi ousted Chamara Kapugedera (10) off his own bowling by flicking Dilshans straight drive onto the non-strikers wicket.But skipper Mathews backed up his economical work with the ball (1-17) by supporting Dilshan with an enterprising late cameo with the blade (21no from 10), although Afghanistan - in the Super 10s for the first time in their history - were left to rue some sloppy ground fielding during an otherwise valiant display. Sri Lanka celebrate the wicket of Mohammad Shahzad Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews: It was a much-needed victory for us as we havent played well in the recent past. Our bowlers did well except for two big overs and we were positive from the word go with the bat. We are not looking too far ahead but if we click we can do wonders as a team. Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai: I thought we were 10 or 15 runs short with our total, although Dilshan played very well for Sri Lanka and showed a lot of responsibility. We also made mistakes with our fielding, so hopefully we can improve that in our next game.Sky pundit and England seamer James Anderson: I thought Afghanistan got a lesson in how to chase down a total from Dilshan - he showed all his experience and skill by taking on low risk shots all the way through a chanceless innings. It was great to watch.Sri Lanka and Afghanistan return to World T20 action on Sunday, with the former tackling Englands conqerors West Indies in Bangalore (1.30pm, Sky Sports 2) after Afghanistan battle South Africa in Mumbai (9am, Sky Sports 2).

Burke is expected to miss two to three months after breaking a finger in the teams third preseason game. Tinsley, a 10-year veteran, spent the last two seasons in Utah, where the point guard averaged 3. FORT WORTH, Texas -- With the Big 12 considering expansion, TCU coach Gary Patterson knows what he believes should be expected of potential additions.Its not the conferences job to make that university better, Patterson said. Its the universitys job to make the conference better, whether its in football, academics or whatever it is.Much like what Patterson feels the Horned Frogs have done, proving themselves a good choice since TCU and West Virginia were brought into the Big 12 four years ago when Missouri and Texas A&M bolted for the SEC.When left out of the original Big 12 lineup in 1996, TCU went on to win championships in the WAC, Conference USA and Mountain West. Now transitioned into the Power Five conference, the Frogs are 23-3 the past two seasons with a share of the 2014 Big 12 title.I thought TCU was a great addition. Because we already had enough vision, Patterson said. We were building a new stadium, we were changing our facilities already, and not when we came into the new conference. We were changing everything we were doing academically.Dual-threat quarterback Trevone Boykin is gone after two record-setting seasons in TCUs potent offense, but the Frogs have 13 returning starters (seven defensive, six offensive) from last years 11-2 team. They also get back six more starters (four defensive, two offensive) who suffered season-ending injuries last year.Some things to watch at TCU in 2016:HILLS HOME: Kenny Hill gets a fresh start near home after being TCUs scout team quarterback last fall. The playmaker started his college career as the successor to Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M, but left after two seasons and spent the 2015 spring semester in junior college before enrolling at TCU. TCU coaches insist Hill is competing with strong-arm sophomore Foster Sawyer to be the starting quarterback. Blue Adidas Originals Shoes. FROM BOTH SIDES: Defensive end Josh Carraway was one of the leagues top pass-rushers with nine sacks last season when right end James McFarland was out because of a broken toe. McFarland, now back at left end, had a team-high seven sacks in 2014.HERE TO STAY: Patterson is signed through the 2021 season after a recent one-year extension. He is the schools winningest head coach with 143 wins going into his 16th season. Patterson has 10 seasons of at least 10 wins -- TCU had only four 10-win seasons before that.KEY GAMES: TCU gets a tough non-conference test at home Sept. 10 against Arkansas, whose coach was at Wisconsin when the Frogs ended their undefeated 2010 season with a Rose Bowl win over the Badgers. Big 12 favorite Oklahoma visits Oct. 1, and Oklahoma State also crosses the Red River to play TCU on Nov. 19. The Frogs go to Baylor on Nov. 5, their first trip there since that epic 61-58 loss in 2014 -- TCU won at home in double overtime over the Bears to end the 2015 regular season.PREDICTION: With all the returning experience, the Frogs should be able to reach at least 10 wins again and be near the top of the Big 12 standings in position for a possible New Years Six spot. Beat Oklahoma to start October, and TCU would have early momentum to make a push for the conference title.SEASON OPENER: Sept. 3 vs. South Dakota State. Pattersons only loss to a lower-division team was in overtime to Northwestern State of Louisiana in his first home game as TCUs coach in 2001. The Jackrabbits, a top-10 FCS team, opened last season with a 41-38 win at winless Big 12 team Kansas.---Online: AP College football website: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
