Son of ‘Boof’ has Maxwell looking over his shoulder

first_imgBy Ian RansomMELBOURNE, Australia (Reuters) – Ashes auditions for Australia’s vacant number six spot have seen a number of leading candidates fluff their lines in the domestic Sheffield Shield but Jake Lehmann’s strong form could force an awkward decision at the selectors’ table where his father sits.Lehmann, the son of Australia coach Darren, has been closely watched since emerging with a trio of first class centuries in the 2015/16 season, and has built a respectable first class average of 44.95 from 29 matches with South Australia (SA).He struck his sixth first-class century with a first-innings 103 against Victoria and backed that up with a 93 to be awarded Player-of-the-Match as SA fell two wickets short of an outright victory on Tuesday.Another big score in the third round could force his father ‘Boof’ out of the room when selectors discuss the squad for the first Ashes Test in Brisbane starting November 23.Even as the 25-year-old pressed his claims, Victoria batsman Glenn Maxwell, probably the strongest candidate for the middle order position, was fighting his own battle to win favour, scoring 64 after managing 60 in the first innings.Dismissed cheaply twice in the opening defeat to Queensland, all-rounder Maxwell’s twin half-centuries may go some way to easing doubts about his consistency.Maxwell struck a fine century when batting number six in Ranchi against India in March but has failed to reach 50 in seven Test innings since.POSITIVE SIGNSFew others, barring 23-Test Shaun Marsh, who hit a 91 for Western Australia (WA) against a Test-quality New South Wales (NSW) attack, have raised their hand for an Ashes spot.Marsh’s state team mate and younger brother Mitchell has managed only 46 runs so far in the Shield, the fast-bowling all-rounder failing twice against NSW.Another WA all-rounder Hilton Cartwright, who played at number six in Australia’s last Test against Bangladesh, crashed out with a pair of ducks and would appear out of the running.Questions over the wicketkeeper position also remain, with Matthew Wade failing to shore up his spot with a decent score for Tasmania and his NSW rival Peter Nevill doing little with the bat to dislodge him.Australia’s attack, by contrast, is settled and has been humming along nicely, with pace spearhead Mitchell Starc firing an ominous Ashes warning with a pair of hat-tricks for NSW in the same match against WA.Starc’s performance moved fellow left-armer Mitchell Johnson, the man who terrorised England’s batsmen during the 5-0 whitewash in the 2013/14 series, to tweet his approval.“Seriously 2 hat-tricks in the same game … Now time to rip in to the poms,” wrote Johnson.Starc’s NSW team mate and Test captain Steve Smith was also impressed, but spread the praise around to fast bowlers Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins.“I thought he bowled like an absolute genius, he’s a superstar,” Smith said of Hazlewood’s six-wicket haul.“Patty Cummins has had a couple of good games as well so they’re up and going and bowling really well. So that is positive signs for us.”last_img read more

Messi was not injured, says Vilanova

first_imgTito Vilanova has revealed that injury was not the reason behind Lionel Messi’s absence during the second leg of Barcelona’s Champions League semi-final with Bayern Munich on Wednesday.The Argentine attacker was a surprise omission from the Blaugrana starting line-up against the Bavarians, with many speculating that he suffered a recurrence of his recent hamstring knock prior to the 3-0 defeat.However, this was not the case according to his coach, who also claimed that Messi would have made an appearance in the second half had he thought the Catalans still had a chance of making the final on May 25.“Messi was not injured, but he was not feeling okay, and I thought that in his situation he would not help the team,” Vilanova told reporters.“He played in Bilbao because he was in much better condition, but at the end of the game he contracted some strange sensations.“We would have taken the risk of playing Leo towards the end of the match if we still had a chance of making the final.” Reflecting on his side’s performance at Camp Nou, Vilanova admitted that Barca were “massively” outclassed by Bayern but insisted that widespread personnel changes would not be necessary during the close season.“Bayern are physically at a great level. The difference today between the sides was massive and I congratulate them on their progression, but also thanks to our fans for their support,” he added.“We’ve been suffering with injuries all season and at this level you pay for that. Every squad needs to be changed, but we have a good squad already.“We don’t need to make a lot of changes as we have some players who are still recovering.”Meanwhile, David Villa supported Vilanova’s assertion that Messi was not in the right physical condition to start at Camp Nou, but nonetheless urged his team-mates to move on quickly from their European humbling. “They were better during both matches, we must admit it. We’re sad because we were close to Wembley but they deserved it and we must congratulate them,” the Spain striker remarked.“We tried to attack from the beginning in order to quickly reduce the aggregate, but the difference was too big in the end.“Messi wanted to play but during the day he knew he wouldn’t be able to do it. It’s not an excuse, even if he is the best player in the world.“Now we must forget about the Champions League and focus on La Liga. There are still many happy moments that we are yet to experience and we are close to winning the league title.”last_img read more
