#1 or Mohammad Hafeez to destroy the entire spell by failing to hold on to von jcy123 26.02.2018 04:20

The penultimate day of The Summit 6 was all about elimination matches, with only lower bracket games to play. Only one Dota 2 team would be able to make the top three after a day of regional rivalries and a rematch of The International 6 grand finals.To kick off the day, Evil Geniuses and Team NP matched up for the first time since the latter eliminated the former from the Northern Arena BEAT Invitational on Nov. 10. EG came into game one seemingly with a grudge, as an Outworld Devourer pick for Sumail Suma1L Hassan created serious problems for Team NP. At just 19 minutes in and a 14-3 kill differential, Team NP called Good Game and conceded game one to EG.Game two was not as quick an affair, with Kurtis Aui_2000 Ling carrying the weight for Team NP on Juggernaut. Team NP broke EGs high ground early and put on the pressure, but EG found some key moments to push back and inflict damage on NPs base as well with Artour Arteezy Babaevs Morphling. In a critical last teamfight, Hassan shone again on OD with a massive ultimate, grabbing three kills in two seconds, opening enough of a window for EG to take the enemys Ancient and the series, 2-0.The second series of the day was a rematch of the TI6 grand finals. Digital Chaos and Wings Gaming, both one best-of-three from elimination, were ready to have it out one more time before the Boston Major in Dec. In keeping with the spirit of the first series, game one was a 22-minute rout of DC by Wings, who used an aggressive combo of Zhou bLink Yang on Mirana and Zhang Faith_bian Ruida on Night Stalker; they grabbed a combined 12 kills before closing it out.Digital Chaos kept better pace with Wings in game two, in an hour-long match that swung back and forth several times. Aliwi w33 Omars Ursa created big problems for Wings, whose magic damage-oriented lineup struggled to deal with the quick Black King Bar purchases on DC. Those BKB durations trickle down with use, however, and soon Zhou and Zhang were finding easy kills once the short-lived magic immunity was baited out. A series of unfortunate misplays on DCs part piled up, and when the final push came, Wings couldnt be held back and took the series 2-0.Wings Gaming wouldnt have long to recuperate after that hour-long match, as it would be facing Evil Geniuses in the final series of the day to determine who would move on to the lower bracket finals to play OG. Game one was, again, a quick 24-minute match, with an odd Treant Protector pick for Li iceice Peng completely shutting down the Venomancer jungler for Evil Geniuses. Every lane for EG seemed countered from the outset, and with a 15,000 net worth advantage for Wings at 22 minutes in, EG called the game and prepared for the next.Whereas game ones drafting phase seemed to spell a loss for EG, Wings Gaming had trouble executing its overall strategy in the second game. Babaev found endless space to farm and kill on Anti-Mage, and W?hlbergs Venomancer, which had been picked to varying results throughout the day, had 80 percent kill participation on the poisonous support. A farming Faceless Void for Chu shadow Zeyu and Lis support Naga failed to control EGs aggression, and Wings fell at 33 minutes in, sending the series to game three.Babaevs Morphling made a return in game three, where an Ethereal Blade and Silver Edge combination created a lot of problems for Wings lineup. The early lead was in EGs favor, though the team struggled to take Wings Gamings high ground thanks to Zhous Sniper. Wings could never surmount the deficit of the lane phase though, and Evil Geniuses left little room for Wings Gaming to capitalize and secure a solid footing for a comeback. At 43 minutes in, Wings called Good Game, and Evil Geniuses secured a spot in The Summit 6s top three in a 2-1 victory.Tomorrow, EG will face OG in the losers bracket finals. The winner will then face Virtus.pro in the grand finals. Rex Burkhead Jersey .

Hindustani classical music - the millennia-old premier art form of the subcontinent - is almost impossible to appreciate without understanding its meanings and symbols. For anyone ignorant of that context, the form can be both aesthetically confusing and fundamentally boring.I began thinking about the subtle difference between something that one person might find boring and another would view as a work of art, while watching the fourth day of the third Test between England and Pakistan.Pakistan had taken two quick wickets and were bowling wide of the stumps with a spread field. All over TV and social media, people complained of how boring it was. Could a little context have provided greater appreciation?Let us return to our analogy. Understanding the context, and purpose, of classical music is almost essential to be able to enjoy it. It has been often posited that Hindustani classical music was developed to embody the concept of time as held in Hinduism: time is understood to be cyclical, not just at the level of days and seasons but also at the level of the universe, with long cycles of change. Cycles are understood to repeat, yet also not be exactly similar to each other.About seven centuries ago the influence of Sufi Muslim thought on Hindustani classical music began to show. The Sufi musician Hazrat Inayat Khan wrote that the whole universe is a single mechanism working by the law of rhythm […] cycles of rhythm with major cycles and minor cycles interpenetrating uphold the whole creation in their swing. Musically, then, the idea developed of repeating cycles with subtle changes of rhythm within them serving as a theme of expression for the artist.In a way, Michael Holding, Shane Warne and perhaps millions of others were subjected to a similar performance at Edgbaston. Both the former bowlers, who were commentating when Rahat Ali embarked on a series of maidens against Joe Root, were aghast at Pakistans tactics. To them it seemed like an admission of defeat right when Pakistan looked strongest. The ESPNcricinfo commentary team agreed.52.4 Rahat Ali to Root, no run, too wide once again, not entirely sure what the tactic is... but Misbah gives his man a big clap for his determined widthEven when Pakistans negative tactics are explained, as Nasser Hussain did in the commentary box right after, they are explained within the framework of pragmatism and conservatism. There is very little understanding of why they do what they do. At the heart of these tactics is the belief that modern batting has changed irrevocably.dddddddddddd After almost two decades of neo-liberal Australianism in which Test batting sped up considerably and players started playing shorter formats more often, cricket has come to a precipice. Unlike before, where perhaps a batsman needed a vacant cover to be tempted into a drive, modern batsmen now play shots compulsively, particularly their go-to shots. Even if a fielder is present, they need to play that shot just to feel in control.The trick, then, is to make them wait for it, and to force them to lash out eventually and make a mistake. So the plan is to repeat cycles of the same bowling line, using subtle changes in length and movement to serve as the rhythm. After a couple of overs of dot-balls, Rahats changes began to entrap Root.54.3 Rahat Ali to Root, no run, thats sharp again, a bit of extra nip from a good length, and the angle brings the edge of Roots bat into peril. Gets away with it 54.5 Rahat Ali to Root, no run, good probing line, swinging late, outside off, and Root is lured by this one. The pressure is starting to tell...54.6 Rahat Ali to Root, no run, that is a very fine over, the fourth maiden in a row, as Root is once again forced to make a decision outside off, and just about keeps his bat out of harms wayMuch like with Hindustani classical music, the appreciation of these variations is not possible if one expects a basic, linear narrative. Ideas recur but in subtly different ways. Bowl wide and sometimes get one to seam, or to swing, or to roll by innocuously. Like notes in classical music, none of the variations are out of place or without purpose. Instead, they keep building, note by note, ball by ball, towards the same cycles, similar yet apart.My favourite performer in this entire spell was Root, who knew of the trap that was being laid for him, and yet also realised that his only purpose was to play a single note. Eventually he played his part, only for Mohammad Hafeez to destroy the entire spell by failing to hold on to the catch.It would be unfair to say Pakistan lost the Test due to Hafeezs dropped catch. The poor bowling later that day, and the collapse the day after, were more immediate causes. But that passage of play on day four was the moment that a team that has forged its identity in crickets backwaters composed its own virtuoso performance. It is an eternal shame that it fell apart right when it was hitting its peak.
