Chaminda Vaas has been appointed Sri Lanka Crickets fast-bowling consultant, fifteen months after his contract as the national teams bowling coach lapsed. Adidas Originals Trainers On Sale . The focus of his new role will be on identifying and developing fast-bowling talent from around the country, rather than on working specifically with the national team.Sri Lankas cricket consultant Aravinda de Silva had been the primary force behind the appointment, and said it was important for the board to tap into skills of its former players.Ive been trying to get a few former cricketers to agree to work with us, he said. When I spoke with Vaas, he was very keen. We feel he will be really good working with some of our young cricketers, from the grassroots levels. Hell work with fast bowlers from around the country, identify talent, get them in to work with the under-19, development and A team squads, which feed into the national team.Though SLC is yet to announce concrete plans for a provincial first-class tournament, de Silva outlined a vision to use SLCs coaches more liberally in the districts further afield from Colombos cricket hub. Both Vaas and new fielding coach Nic Pothas will be expected to travel widely in their roles, spotting talent and buttressing coaching work.We want our coaches to go deep into the district and provincial levels, and also to help the clubs, de Silva said. If any coach in a club needs some assistance, were happy to allocate some of the bowling coaches to go and spend some time with those relevant clubs. We want to put some schedules together so they can go right around the country - Vaas job will be one of those. He will be a floating coach who will go around and do the identification.Vaas, who was with the national team for just over a year, is the latest in a slew of high-profile coaching appointments from the present administration. This board had already installed Graham Ford as head coach, Simon Willis as high performance manager and Pothas as fielding coach.Pothas began his tenure on August 8, and said existing relationships with Ford, Willis and trainer Michael Main would ease his transition. Ive known Graham Ford for a very long time, and Ive had the pleasure over the years of actually playing under Graham Ford, he said. Ive known Simon Willis from the UK, and Michael Main was the strength and conditioning coach when I worked at Hampshire, so there are a lot of friends and a lot of familiar faces.[Im hoping to] change the fielding culture here, and bring about a change in the language we use around fielding. Its the part of the game where we spend most of our time. You can get a good delivery or a bad decision as a batsman, but you can still influence the game with your fielding. Ive always seen fielding as the way that you show your teammates how much you care about them. Adidas Originals Superstar Sale . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Andrelton Simmons threw his hands up in disbelief, then put them on his hips and stared toward the mound. In the dugout, all Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia could do was shake his head.Thats not fun, Simmons said about his hard liner on which reliever Nick Martinez made a no-look, behind-the-back snag and turned into a double play. You try to hit the ball hard, and a guy makes a crazy play. Thats baseball, I guess.That play by Martinez came in the fifth inning of the Rangers 5-4 win Tuesday night in another testy game to get them closer to their second AL West title in a row while Los Angeles scuffles in last place.Thats just a reaction. You can try that a hundred times, and maybe get it once, Scioscia said. But he comes out and makes the play.Angels left-hander Brett Oberholtzer and Scioscia were ejected when Elvis Andrus was hit by a pitch in the eighth, an inning after both benches were warned following a fastball by reliever Keona Kela that went near Simmons head.Andrus was the third Texas batter hit by a pitch after Mike Trout was hit by a pitch in the Angels second.Scioscia felt the throw at Simmons was intentional, coming an inning after a play at second base when he tagged out Carlos Gomez, who had advanced on an errant pickoff throw but lost contact with the base while sliding.For some reason, they were upset, saying (Simmons) had his foot in front of the slide when Gomez slid into the base and then overslid the bag and was consequently called out, Scioscia said. I guess they took exception to what was a good play by Andrelton. He wasnt in Gomezs way at all. ... He came up to bat, and they threw a 97-mph fastball at his neck.There was also a short delay in the Rangers seventh when third-base coach Spike Owen walked toward the Angels dugout and had words with a clearly agitated Scioscia.I was upset, Scioscia said. He was the closest guy in an opposing uniform.Banister didnt give any insight about what happened with Owen.I thinkk that my third base coach got asked out to lunch, Banister said. Adidas Superstar Shoes Sale. They were trying to make plans, they interrupted the game, so I went over there and made sure we kept the game going.In the Rangers 3-2 series-opening victory Monday night, Banister (arguing a replay review) and Mitch Moreland (questioning a called third strike) were tossed early.Rangers rookie Nomar Mazaras 20th homer was a 438-foot drive off rookie right-hander Daniel Wright (0-4) in the fourth to make it 4-3. Moreland added an RBI single an inning later after two batters were hit by pitches.In between came the play when Martinez (2-3), who threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings, caught the hard liner and threw to first to force out C.J. Cron, who was already almost to second base.I guess it happened so quick that it happened in slow motion, Martinez said. I just kind of threw my glove up there, theres no real explanation for it, in hopes of knocking it down.BALL 14, BALL 15Martinez, the first of six Texas relievers, came in with two outs in the second after starter A.J. Griffins last 12 pitches were balls, a stretch when he hit Trout with a pitch to load the bases before consecutive four-pitch walks to Albert Pujols and C.J. Cron that made it 3-1. Martinezs first three pitches were balls before an inning-ending groundout by Simmons.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: Wright was hit in the back of the leg by a comebacker in the second, but was OK. ... Scioscia said Jhoulys Chacin, who had a comebacker ricochet off his lower left leg Monday, was sore but should make his next start.UP NEXTAngels: Jered Weaver (11-12) will try to join Chuck Finley (165) as the only pitchers to win 150 games in an Angels uniform. The right-handers 17 wins against Texas are his most against any opponent.Rangers: Lefty Derek Holland (7-8) has lost his last two starts, allowing nine runs in 9 2/3 innings.
