perfect oMG I think I’m sick did you hit the net that is that it’s just messy I
know he’s been a good for martin Guptill but that’s that’s the icing on the cake
that lost ball at a create ground to give another five for that it’s the six of the roof from martin
Guptill and we’ve seen some extreme hitting but that has been the biggest by
far from Ryan tenders Carter he is absolutely moose that out of the
park we go very honest I mean the team for
Saturday motors and we’ve seen some extreme hitting but that has been the
biggest by far from Ryan tenders Carter he is absolute tough chances Chris games
now trying to reassert his dominance particularly on big six this ground test
match we saw it on the roof here right above us and this one here into the
backyard and people that is a huge hit yeah they don’t give it back like this
one for history because it’s the new Graham Road stand if it had a beam there
and of course it would now that really has been go down the rickety guys this is Heidi
and it’s going all the way don’t worry about trashing onto the roof of the newsstand
that’s a lovely shot from Ganguly it’s been playing second fiddle out here
but that’s almost as good as they come well it certainly has gone a long way
sir I’ve done ruling set it in the part that it doesn’t look as if he’s hitting
the ball very hard here’s another look at that six way over the top and ended
up landing on the roof oh ho it’s Anna ground that’s gone it’s
downtown it’s on my car don’t believe it the downside of getting a pack so close
oh no did you pay insurance I do believe it I think it’s mine another report the first one usually
it’s a it’s the same color it’s a round about the same place I know I packed at
the air about five hours ago oh geez please I don’t think I was that
far down but this is one of the greater sixes this ground has ever seen huggy V
greats I think this sale and this stand had
just been built and he put it over over the stand I think it went through the
gap in the sale or bounced off it into the net area at the back and cataract
ermine and his daughter were walking in nearly nearly got hit nearly wore the
Kookaburra but there won’t be the sound off the bars and writing and I guess
it’s the consistency of this Gabba pitch 143 meters it was a monster monster almost almost led the two roads outside
that’s the long boundary and it’s out of the zone that’s from the crease bigots he’s got all of them let me tell
you it’s half way up the trees and these are not small trees at Queens Sports
Club we’ve just said about falling in the rod areas this is knowledge of
delivery from Masakazu massive hit the sounded made from the vet told you and
that has gone way over the boundary that’s just pour boiling by Shinji
massacred so what is the roof again always loves that room he
loves hats balls that’s going to be called Dan
girlies roof the shares in the company that made that
rule in certainly giving them a lot of advertising so damn cool
he caught this one on the phone didn’t bother to wait on it to create the pitch the way it goes and that is hit the windscreen just fan
the wok trigger bolt in the front seats and that is a big here that is the
biggest six of the die what a way to finish the either here’s six of the tournament probably
the biggest six of the year net has come straight off the middle didn’t worry
about the stands went straight out of the ground that’s gone many amount now
wonderful let me get that ball back I’ll have to come back with a bus ticket on
it or a hit and that is hit the windscreen just
Fanta walk trigger Bowl in the front seats just giving himself a little bit of room
for the art and let his cum dead set off the middle it’s almost like a golfers
follow-through didn’t move who knows it’s gone that is going to deliver water short
I’m positive for the meatballs 26 of five teams in tourism we just held
this position and squattin it and then it’s cleared the standard alien told us
into the place it’s gone into the road outside the grandstand he’s deathly Claudette sort of thing this
time Tanner gets in he gets in a long long way under the roof this is more like it versus Ross Tyler’s
gonna do slander anything that is remotely in a zone that’s them my
millions out of that shot literally made millions of dollars over wide midwicket
of the front foot enters go to at the stage such right out of the lower-middle – added to
the leverage of the shot they go for you’ve got to go to Paula’s my set to
look for the shortage delivery and after a long long time I must say I’m think
they look a bad like he used to looking to hit the ball in the air knew that
Andy character just as when he was there waiting for then I’m amazed that balls
come back to really really notice them and bang I’ve just got in here and they
tell of here he’s Hollister school that is a huge another four and Fang I just got in here an eternity
his highest test score that is a you did know them for and for
the second time he puts it on the roof Wow Andy if you didn’t know the pair of

Let’s hope it gets at all Rough restarts the second period with the game still very much in the balance USA no it could go either way yet And billion I think the keeper couldn’t deal with that Don’t past him all too easily defenders gonna do better than chose to get it in Wanna kick Kevin good position for Australia Pulls out for throwing an Australian throwing Milligan USA have climbed the throwing it is their ball Bradlee Altidore Dangit sink Tim Cahill to get past his man Altidore beautifully done Read that well smart interception And billion Free kick to the United Stated states their farm Extra energy may just do the trick win the game that’s the reason for the change In early states attack developing peated beautifully and Gillian We intercepted that saw the danger dealt with it Keep past the challenge There really are depending like strangers and president pussy dangerous guy say that one choice In billion So they make it this They have to fight for possession Michael bradley great block by the defender, USA’s truck Bradlee Now Jones To parry that but he held on But intersectionally can win the board in midfield like that Just ready to see the ante time that we’re gonna get and billion The 90 minutes are up, and there is just nothing to choose between them still level So here we go with extra time and how much extra time a Golden Goal would settle it instantly Clint dempsey USA attacking Altidore Spira Novak’s Davidson many get to it oh That was the chance the chance is deadly right here, and now oh I think he’s been reading all the headlines there God We just got ahead of himself, and he’s missed it You can’t keep squandering these opportunities. They’re gonna cost you in the end There it is the end of the first period of extra time Well the two of these players would take their chances with penalties right now nobody wants to make the slip That could lead to a golden goal But all but a good save keeps them in it oh I love it Clive we keep going now Thanks to that safe from the goalkeeper Jemaine Jones, they lose it here if he’s not careful Possibilities for Australia Man three Pretty time to head out oh no complaints with many of his teammates there. They know that was a good effort a slut That’s it for extra time and still nothing between them the keepers and the penalty takers will settle this one It’s as much a case of luck as judgment now The first penalty kick can set the tone for a shootout. We’ll want to get them off to the right start here get a penalty Tucked it away passel of weights with the keeper, which he won Man in the stadium That’s a great penalty thumped into the top corner It’s a second penalty everyone defines the niches He said trick the keeper with the stutter in the run-up kept his nerve Doesn’t miss many It’s gone battle of wits with a keeper straight down the middle It’s Clearly done well, what a responsibility what a chance if the keeper saves this he wins the game for them Shoot It’s been exciting penalty shootouts always our hope you enjoyed it we have see you next time Well war drama in the penalty shootout there. I’ll leave you with the full match highlights and until next time. I’ve been Jeff Stelling
Ninh explains, the Rules of Cricket.
The object of the game is for your team to score more runs than the opposing team.
Teams are made up of 11 players, with one substitute in case of injury.
At the beginning of the game, a coin toss is used to determine who bats first.
The fielding team will put all 11 players on the field, whilst the batting team will
send out two batsmen. Batsmen always work in pairs, and a batsman
cannot bat alone. The batsmen’s job is to score runs and defend
their wickets. These wickets are three wooden stumps with
two wooden bails resting on top of them. They try and hit the ball away from the wickets,
and to run to their partner’s crease. If a batsman hits the ball and both men safely
run to the opposite crease, this scores one run.
If a bowler bowls the ball high, wide or throws a no–ball (an illegal bowl), this automatically
scores one run. If the batsman hits the ball along the floor
and it reaches the boundary, this scores four runs automatically without running.
And if the batsman hits the ball in the air and it goes over the boundary, this scores
six automatic runs. This is the highest scoring play in cricket. It’s the job of the fielding team to get
the batsmen out of the game. The fielding team can designate specific players
to bowl the ball towards the batsman. To bowl the ball, the ball must be bowled
overarm and be within the channel of play. In Cricket, there are 10 ways for a fielding
team to get you out. 1. Bowled out.
If the bowler bowls the ball and it hits the batsman’s wickets and knocks over the bails,
he’s been bowled out. 2. Caught Out
If the batsman hits the ball in the air and it’s caught by a fielder, he’s been caught
out. 3. Run Out
If the batsman runs for his partner’s crease and the ball is thrown into the wickets before
the batsman gets there, he’s been run out. 4. LBW (Leg before Wicket)
If the ball hits the batsman’s leg, and the umpire thinks that the ball would have
hit the wickets if his leg wasn’t in the way – he is ruled out by LBW – Leg Before
Wicket. 5. Stumped Out
If the batsman swings and misses the ball, the wicket keeper can catch the ball and push
the ball into the wickets. If this happens before the batsman can return to the crease,
he’s been stumped out. 6. Hit Wicket / Accidental Out
On the rarest of occasions, a batsman can get himself out or his own partner out by
accidentally hitting the wickets themselves. The other four ways to get out in Cricket
almost never happen in today’s game. These include
hitting the ball twice in one stroke, handling the ball,
obstructing a fielding player, or taking too long to take to the field Once a batsman is out, he is replaced by the
next batsmen in the batting teams line-up. Once 10 players are out, the players switch
sides so that the batsmen are now the fielders and vice versa.
The highest run total after both sides have had their turn to bat, wins. That’s basically the game in a nutshell,
but there’s a few other things you’ll need to understand.
A bowler must deliver 6 legal bowls to a batsman. Once 6 legal bowls have been played, this
is known as an over. Once an over is complete, a new bowler will
then try and get the other batsmen out by bowling the ball from the other side.
Once both teams have finished batting – this is known as an innings.
The amount of overs and innings vary depending on the format of cricket.
In T20 cricket, each team is given 20 overs, for one innings.
This game generally lasts about 3 hours. In One Day Cricket, each team is given 40
or 50 overs for one innings. As the name implies this game generally lasts
a day. In Test Cricket, there are no limits for overs
and the game ends theoretically when all batsmen are out, and is usually played for two innings.
This game can last anywhere up to 5 days and is the oldest (and longest) form of cricket.
If you’re new to Cricket, I highly recommend watching highlights of any Indian Premier
League Game to start out with. If you’re watching Cricket on TV, they’ll
conveniently tell you how many runs have been scored, how many batsmen are out, and they’ll
even tell you what the other team scored and how many runs are required. Cricket might seem like a slow game, but as
you watch or play it – the rules will become clear.

Hi there hockey fans I’m Sandra Sully with
another Hockey Australia news update. With the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast
just around the corner, Australia’s best will test there skills in preparation when they
gather in Perth for the Australian Hockey League on September 28. Now the yearly tournament sees each state
and territory compete for the AHL trophy, this year India and New Zealand will also
compete in the tournament adding even more pressure for the native sides to perform. Victoria are the reigning champions in the
men’s division, Queensland claimed the women’s title last year. We spoke with our national teams about playing
against one another throughout the competition. It is challenging, I won’t lie. But I do love it, I love playing against people
that I’m usually with in the same team. It strikes up such a different type of competitiveness
because you know and understand their game plan and you try and counteract that. I think it really develops good, intelligent
players at AHL. Coinciding with the AHL will be the U13 Australian
Carnival. All of the best up and coming hockey star
across Australia have been invited to participate in the competition. So for more details on both events visit hockey.org.au
and secure your seats or you can head over to trybooking.com. Thanks for watching and i’ll see you next
Australia is a
sport loving nation. Rugby, cricket, Aussie rules
football dominate this country. Ice hockey is probably
the last thing you’d think you’d
see here, but they’ve been playing it
for over 100 years and actually have one
of the oldest hockey federations in the world. Even after all that time, it’s
a long way from being relevant. So I’ve came here to see
Australian hockey players with very few rinks in the
country, limited resources, strive to perform
their best down under. My name is Paul Bissonette. Some of you may
know me as BizNasty. I played 12 years of
pro hockey, and even after all that time on the ice, I never
thought I’d end up in Melbourne to see how ice
hockey is advancing Australia. But here I am. And now that I’m here,
I’m going to find out what’s driving these
players on the ice, and why they’re choosing
to play ice hockey. There’s a group of junior
players about the scrimmage this afternoon. I figure, what better
way to start than there? Let’s go check it out. What’s up, boys? So what’s it like playing
hockey in Australia? We don’t get much ice time
or anything like that. And the ice is terrible. How many hours a
week you on the ice? About three or four sometimes. First of all,
where are you from? -Brisbane.
-OK. Brisbane. -How many rinks there?
-Just two. So you got to come here to
get some good training, and– Yeah. I’m looking forward to
seeing your skills out there. So this player
who passes it, you got to get ready and get
another puck on your tape. Don’t pass the puck, and then
look at it and think it’s over. Nice call, nice call. Yeah! Oh! Nice, boys! I’m really interested to see
where their hockey minds are at when they start playing
and get in the game situation. How long you been
playing hockey? Five, six years. What made you fall
in love with it? Uh, the speed. I like the intensive feeling. And in Australia, you don’t
really improve as much, but it’s because you don’t
get as much ice time. Do you find the teaching and
the ice time and the resources are getting better though? Yeah. They are getting better
because more people are playing hockey in Australia. So that means more coaches,
more parents want to help out. It just makes the
hockey even better. How long have you been playing? Eight, Nine years. That was in-line
hockey because I lived in Bendigo, which is
two hours away from any rinks. So how often do you
get to get on ice? Three times a week now. So you’re commuting two
hours just to skate? -Yeah.
-Oh, man. You said you’re from Canada. And just to come over here
and help these kids develop, it’s probably pretty cool. It’s so cool to see the
passion that people have here. It’s like a tight
knit community. They put in the time.
They just want it. How much change have you
seen in the type of resources that are being offered
to these kids now, than maybe five years ago? All the volunteers who
have come down and volunteered their time have been able to
learn off the coaches how to teach the kids
correctly. So the kids want to learn,
you put the effort in, and the progression
they can get, it’s huge. All right. So yesterday, we
got a chance to see how these young players
in Australia train. Now today, I’m going to
get my first ever taste of the AIHL action,
the Melbourne Mustang against the Melbourne Ice. One of the biggest
rivalries in Australia is going to kick off
today, and I heard things are going to get chippy. And I’m excited to watch it. What’s up, boys?
How are you? -Well why the bad blood?
-I don’t know. These boys just encourage
me to do it all game, and we don’t really
like the ice, so– They won the championship
last year, didn’t they? Is that one reason you
want to set the tone early, -for the season?
-Yeah. I think so. I think there’s no
better way than do it. Get the boys going as well. A little bitter that you
guys took that championship last year? It’s always pretty
emotional with us and them because they don’t like
us, and we don’t like them. And then down the
hall, we share a rink. It’s always on. What’s the consensus
on the team this year? You guys supposed
to be pretty good? We’ve got a good core
group of Australian players that have played for
a fair few years. I wanted to ask you guys
how much the league’s grown since you guys have known it,
since it’s came over you guys are selling out games here. When we started we was
pretty well unknown. So I was quite young. It’s grown huge. It’s definitely
a good following. A lot of really good
supporters as well. When Melbourne play Melbourne,
the stadium packs out, and all along the border, it’s
three or four people deep. It’s a really good atmosphere. Get the legs going, boys. Got to get the legs moving. Talk about the grind of
this league in general. I think the biggest
thing is just that it is an amateur league still. So we’ve got guys from pretty
much all over the world, but you come here for
the love of the game rather than playing for
money, and that’s pretty much what it is. I’m here with Andy Lamrock,
the CEO and co-owner of the Melbourne Ice. And here, we have the third
oldest ice hockey trophy in the world. Everyone that’s ever
played and won in it, it’s got their name on it.
She’s a beauty. For a nation that’s had hockey
established for that long, you guys are ranked
33rd in the world. Hockey in Australia has
always been at a level based on availability of ice. So we’re not like
Canada, where there’ ten ice rinks in 5 square miles. There’s ten ice
rinks in Australia. You’re one of two
teams in Melbourne. Talk about that
rivalry, what it does to grow the game in Melbourne,
as well as the whole league. In our building here, we
have two Melbourne teams, and the Mustangs are
great organization. We have a lot of
respect for them. But when it’s on the ice, you
know what a rivalry is, right? It’s local talent
versus local talent. It’s real bragging rights. When we get on the ice,
it’s just another level. The chirping starts,
and fans love that. I’m actually surprised they
played two 15 minute periods in the first and second, and
then last period is 20 minutes. It’s supposed to be a friendly. This is an exhibition game,
but there’s some bad blood between these two teams. Oh, he’s chucked his helmet. The Mustangs have
drew first blood here. I’m actually quite impressed
with the level of play so far. Oh, wow. That guy tried to
murder that other guy. I’d say the biggest difference
so far, structurally, the hockey sense isn’t there. You see plays break down a lot. One of the positives to
seeing a lot of breakdowns, though, is that the games
are more entertaining. If you had the opportunity
to play for one team, who would you guys play for? -Melbourne Ice.
-Melbourne Ice. A couple basic things
I noticed, Olympic-size ice, obviously. A lot more ice out there
than North America. These guys really
hate each other. Things are picking up here. The Melbourne Ice
have have done it. Hey, guys. We’ve reached the
end of our trip. I had an unbelievable
experience in Australia, not only taking in
the culture, but how they’re advancing the
sport of ice hockey here, how there’s
more rinks coming, the development’s getting
better, coaches coming over to volunteer their time. It was cool to see how
they’re progressing the young kids in development. Although they’re only 33rd
in the world right now, I think they’re definitely
doing a great job. And it seems as if though,
ice hockey is really going to advance here. And I can’t wait to see
where they go from here.
