By Tristan LavalettePERTH, Australia (Reuters) – Batsman Marnus Labuschagne stroked his third straight majestic century, as Australia took advantage of a weakened New Zealand attack in fierce heat on the opening day of the first Test yesterday.Australia, who won the toss and batted in the day-nighter, reached 248 for four at stumps with Labuschagne 110 not out and Travis Head unbeaten on 20.Labuschagne batted through the final two sessions on a Perth Stadium pitch which was unresponsive before coming alive under the lights.“It’s great to make big contributions for Australia and get us in a position where we can kick off tomorrow,” Labuschagne told reporters.“There were patches where scoring really dried up and you had to be patient.”South Africa-born Labuschagne became just the ninth Australian batsman to notch three consecutive tons when he clubbed a six – just his second of his 12-Test career – down the ground off spinner Mitchell Santner to add to his centuries posted against Pakistan in Brisbane and Adelaide.He shared a 132-run third-wicket partnership with Steve Smith (43) to grab control of the contest when conditions were at their most oppressive.Stifled by disciplined New Zealand bowling and astute field placements from captain Kane Williamson, Smith was unable to find fluency and fell when he miscued a short delivery from Neil Wagner to leg gully.While the hosts were unchanged, New Zealand were dealt a major blow when spearhead Trent Boult failed to overcome a side strain and were further weakened when debutant quick Lockie Ferguson was forced off the field after injuring his right calf in the second session.Yet New Zealand battled manfully and clawed their way back with the pink ball under lights, highlighted by a Tim Southee pearler to dismiss Matthew Wade for 12 shortly before the close.An unruffled Labuschagne, however, survived through to stumps after impressively rebuilding Australia’s innings following the dismissals of their openers in the first session.Colin de Grandhomme, New Zealand’s workhorse all-rounder, returned to the lineup after overcoming an abdominal injury and made an immediate impact with the wicket of Joe Burns for nine.David Warner, fresh off his unbeaten 335 against Pakistan in Adelaide, fell in spectacular fashion just before the tea break for 43.He had threatened to bat through the first session but was brilliantly dismissed by the tireless Wagner, who plucked a sharp return catch in his follow-through.Wagner said New Zealand’s bowlers showed resilience in adversity. “The wicket was a little bit slower than we anticipated and we had to stick at it for long periods,” he said.“I thought we stuck to our guns well and got the ball to move around at times.”Both teams wore black armbands as a tribute to the victims of New Zealand’s White Island volcano eruption.Most of the 19 081 spectators at the 60 000-seat stadium spent much of day one seeking refuge under the shelter of the stands with the temperature hitting 39 degrees Celsius.New Zealand have won only one Test in Australia since their sole series triumph across the Tasman Sea in 1985-86.AUSTRALIA 1st inningsDavid Warner c & b Neil Wagner 43Joe Burns lbw Colin de Grandhomme 9Marnus Labuschagne not out 110Steven Smith c Tim Southee b Neil Wagner 43Matthew Wade b Tim Southee 12Travis Head not out 20Extras; (b-2, nb-2, w-7) 11Total; (four wkts, 90.0 overs) 248Fall of wickets: 1-40, 2-75, 3-207, 4-225Bowling: Tim Southee 20-4 -53-1 (w-1), Lockie Ferguson 11-1-47-0 (w-1), Neil Wagner 22-4-52-2 (w-1), Colin de Grandhomme 16-6-24-1 (nb-2)).

5 4. Nigel Pearson (Southampton, Hull City, Leicester City) – Pearson is no stranger to masterminding Premier League survival, having led Leicester City to safety in spectacular fashion at the end of last season. Claudio Ranieri may be stealing the limelight for the Foxes rise to the top of Englands top flight, but his predecessors work mustnt be overlooked. The 52-year-old also has previous experience at St James Park, having been assistant to Glenn Roeder and Sam Allardyce in 2006. Steve McClaren is closing in on an exit from Newcastle United.Reports at the weekend claimed McClaren could be dismissed by Mike Ashley, should his side fail to beat Bournemouth at the weekend.Having suffered defeat in the clash, the 54-year-old may soon to discover his fate, with the manager himself stating after the loss that he would not quit, leaving the decision to others.The Guardian report that directors are currently holding crisis talks over their current boss’ future and who they could bring in to replace him.But, if the Magpies do wield the axe, who could be in contention to take his place in the St James’ Park dugout and attempt to lead them to Premier League safety?Take a look at five managers that may be on Ashley’s wish list by clicking the arrow above, right. 5 1. David Moyes (Everton, Manchester United, Real Sociedad) – According to The Guardian, the former Everton and Manchester United manager is extremely interested in the position on Tyneside. His experience with the Toffees, in particular, could be a major reasoning for Newcastles interest. Against all the odds, Moyes guided Everton to Premier League safety in 2004, and since then they have largely been comfortable in the top flight. 3. Rafael Benitez (Valencia, Liverpool, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Napoli, Real Madrid) – Just seven months into a three-year deal, at the beginning of January this year, Florentino Perez called time on the Spaniards contract at the Santiago Bernabeu after an underwhelming start to Real Madrids season. Since then, he has been out of work. Now, though, Newcastle could be preparing a move for the former Chelsea and Liverpool manager. 5. Harry Redknapp (Bournemouth, West Ham, Southampton, Portsmouth, Tottenham Hotspur, QPR) – read all about it, then click the arrow above to discover four more contenders to replace McClaren, in order of most likely to be appointed – According to the Express, Redknapp is considered a temporary option and could be employed on an interim basis until the end of the season. The former Tottenham Hotspur manager has been out of work since quitting Queens Park Rangers over health concerns in February 2015, and could be open to a return to the Premier League on a short-term contract. 5 5 2. Brendan Rodgers (Watford, Reading, Swansea City, Liverpool) – The Northern Irishman was heavily criticised by Liverpool supporters throughout his two and a half seasons at Anfield, but one man who reportedly admired his work on Merseyside is Mike Ashley. At the end of February, Rodgers revealed his desire to return to management in the summer could Newcastle chiefs persuade him to make an earlier comeback? It could take a very lucrative offer for him to agree a move to a relegation-threatened side, however. 5

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netAfter Gilas Pilipinas got away with wins that looked far from pretty, coach Chot Reyes knows it highlighted how much work the team needs in the Fiba World Cup 2019 Asian Qualifying series.The national team gets another three months to get it all done—whether it’s adjusting to the tournament’s new home-and-away format or making sure that naturalized player Andray Blatche stays fit for action.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) chair emeritus Manny V. Pangilinan noted that Gilas’ three-week training, clearly, wasn’t enough.“If we are going to get serious against Australia, we have got to give enough time for the team to jell,” said Pangilinan.Part of that preparation should be getting Blatche on board early, said Reyes, as the 31-year-old got criticized for his sluggish showing.“The key is to get him to practice more than five days,” said Reyes, after Blatche flew in late due to commitments in China. “We can’t teach everything in five days. Or you might be able to teach everything, but to actually practice it, run it, make it instinct, you can’t get that in five days.”Blatche had a measly six points on a 2-of-9 shooting plus six turnovers against Taipei, but had 14 rebounds and five blocks. Reyes got a big boost, however, from June Mar Fajardo’s 17 points off the bench on top of eight rebounds, two assists and a couple of blocks.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Read Next Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Jarata replicates Palawan tennis 3-peat Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

The agreement is similar to the one the Mavs and Nowitzki reached last year, although for significantly less money. Last year’s contract was for two years and $50 million, and the club declined its option before free agency opened this year.The 39-year-old Nowitzki is no longer the primary option for the Mavericks, so a $5 million deal is more in line with his role on a roster that has become significantly younger since the start of last season. The $25 million salary from a year ago was as much about Dallas paying Nowitzki for his loyalty, which included taking less money to help acquire free agents through the years.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsBryant retired following the 2015-16 season, his 20th with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 7-foot German is also the only foreign-born player with 30,000 career points, a milestone he reached last season.But Nowitzki wants to get back into playoff contention before he leaves after the Mavericks missed the postseason for just the second time in 17 seasons.Nowitzki was second to Harrison Barnes in scoring last season at 14.2 points per game and could drop further with Wesley Matthews going into the third year of his deal as the starting shooting guard.Dennis Smith, taken ninth overall in the draft, and Yogi Ferrell are two young point guards who will spend time running the pick-and-roll with Nowitzki and 23-year-old center Nerlens Noel, a restricted free agent the Mavericks are expected to keep after trading for him at the deadline last season.ADVERTISEMENT Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ MOST READ Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games China furious as Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong View comments
