Vishys counterattack lights up ChepaukIndia vs. West Indies, Madras, 1975Gundappa Viswanaths?daredevilry, which mesmerised the Chepauk full house, was a bold rescue act, which romantics swear would rarely be bettered.?At Eden Gardens, in the third Test, his 139 in the second innings was the catalyst to India winning their first match and keeping the five-Test series alive. Chepauk offered a slow, turning pitch in the fourth Test. Andy Roberts, however, was menacingly fast and precise, extracting extra bounce and having Indian hearts skip in fear. Viswanath came in at 24 for 2 and watched wickets tumble. At 117 for 8, it seemed all over for India. But Viswanath and Bishan Bedi remained resolute. Viswanath dished out a range of artistic strokes - square drives, straight drives, on drives and flicks. The 52-run partnership for the ninth wicket, during which Bedi faced only 23 balls, helped India to 190.Viswanath was undefeated on 97 and went back laughing. Roberts, who took 7 for 64, went back brooding. Erapalli Prasanna and Bedi then restricted West Indies first-innings lead to only two runs. Viswanath was among the runs in Indias second innings as well, his 93-run stand for the sixth wicket with Anshuman Gaekwad set West Indies a target of 255. Bhagwath Chandrasekhar burst through the defences of Gordon Greenidge with a fast legbreak. Farokh Engineer pouched Viv Richards brilliantly. Lloyd leapt out against Prasanna and was duly stumped. Alvin Kallicharan resisted with a fifty, but India won an hour into lunch to level the series after being 2-0 down.By Nagraj GollapudiBefore Kolkata 2001, there was Melbourne 1981India vs. Australia, Melbourne, 1981Before Kolkata 2001, there was Melbourne 1981. India bowled out for 237, three frontline bowlers injured, and in store, endless suffering in one of the most unforgiving settings in Test cricket: Australia on top at MCG. Australia went on to take an 182-run lead, which should have been enough to shut India out, but there was some rare pluck shown until then. Shivlal Yadav batted with a broken toe to see Gundappa Vishwanath to a hundred, then bowled 32 overs with painkiller injections in every session.Sunil Gavaskar and Chetan Chauhan then - remember the altercation with Dennis Lillee? - led a batting resurgence to set Australia 143 in the fourth innings. From the moment Greg Chappell was bowled to a filthy long hop from Karsan Ghavri in the dying moments of day four, India believed they were destined to win. The pitch, slow and uneven by now, reminded them of home, which is another reason for this irresistible belief. With Australia 24 for 3 at the start of the final day, the injured Kapil Dev came back to bowl unchanged for 16.4 overs, straight and into the pitch, taking five wickets to bowl India to a 59-run win.By Sidharth MongaIndia ends 64 year Lords waitIndia vs. England, Lords, 1986India had been playing Tests at Lords, the home of cricket, since their arrival on the Test stage in 1932. But of their ten encounters previous to this one in 1986, eight had ended in defeat and the other two had been drawn. Three years ago, Kapil Dev and his men had shocked the world by lifting the World Cup at Lords but Test success at the games most hallowed venue remained elusive.David Gowers team had an unsettled air about it as the series began with his captaincy facing questions. An assured hundred from Graham Gooch, who would score a triple century at the same venue against India four years later, was the bright spot in an otherwise insipid first innings batting effort. Derek Pringle made a combative 63 but as many as six English batsmen failed to cross double figures as they folded up for 294. Indias bowling attack was led by the sprightly Chetan Sharma who secured a place on the honours board with a five wicket haul with Roger Binny picking up a further three. Indias riposte with the bat was led by the man who would come to be known as the Lord of Lords. Dilip Vengsarkar had made hundreds in his previous two visits to the venue and constructed another masterpiece here. There was little support for Vengsarkar, who stroked 16 fours in his vigil and remained not out as India folded up for 341.A lead of 47 was by no means substantial but the all-round quality of Indias bowling attack decisively shifted the game in their favour. Kapil Dev was masterful with the new ball, picking up the first three wickets including the dangerous Gooch and captain Gower before the deficit was erased. The left arm spin of Maninder Singh flummoxed the lower order and India were left with just 134 to accomplish a famous win. Despite an stutter with the loss of openers Gavaskar and Srikanth, India werent to be denied. It took them 42 overs to go past the target for the loss of five wickets and take the series lead. Lords had been conquered and in a few days the second Test at Headingley was pocketed too as India clinched the series 2-0. It was the first time they had won more than one Test on a tour of England.By Gaurav KalraSrinath skittles South Africa out at MoteraIndia vs. South Africa, Ahmedabad, 1996A victory which was vintage Indian cricket, but then again not. Ahmedabad was the first of three Tests on South Africas first full tour of India. A dry, brown Motera wicket shrieked spin and promised hot-tin-roof-style batting and a low scorer and it was. A bowlers Test as expected but the victory not earned through a familiar template - bat once, bat big and let the spinners on. Allan Donald, pace and variation through the air cut through the Indian first innings, but Sunil Joshi, Anil Kumble and Narendra Hirwani kept the first innings lead down to 21.In the second, Indias top five were gone for less than 100 and only a fifty-plus partnership between a debutant called VVS Laxman and Kumble, helped set 170 as a target. South Africa had two days to get it, if only they could hold off the spinners. It was when Ahmedabad, its brown crumbler and dry winter air, produced the surprise in fast bowler Javagal Srinath firing the ball in - speed, accuracy, in swinger, off-cutter - slicing and dicing. His 12 overs dismantled South Africas batting and intention, two of the top three gone without a run on the board, only three batsmen getting to double figures. Srinath 6-21saw South Africa dismissed inside 39 overs with India winning by 64 runs. A runaway script, an unpredictable Test, an unexpected finish.By Sharda Ugra Cheap Reggie Jackson Jersey .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

OMAHA, Neb. -- Kacey Oberlander is missing her dogs back home, and shes more than a little stressed competing in the high-pressure environment at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.Thats where Holly comes in.The adorable, 4-year-old Havanese is available for petting and furry hugs.It just calms me down a lot, said Oberlander, who swims for York YMCA in Pennsylvania and will be attending the University of Alabama in the fall. Its nice to see the happy puppy dogs running around when everything is so intense and everyones so serious. The dogs are very happy all the time. It makes me calm.Yep, these Olympic trials have gone to the dogs -- and the athletes are loving it.USA Swimming, in an effort to ease some of the anxiety accompanying such a major meet, has partnered with Domesti-PUPS -- a nonprofit organization based in Lincoln, Nebraska, that is providing four-legged companions for the athletes lounge at CenturyLink Center.In a section of the arena that is generally off-limits to everyone except the swimmers, dogs such as Holly and Larry, a Goldendoodle who will readily pose for a picture or pause for a pat on the head, have been welcomed with open arms.If anyone doubts their purpose, each pooch wears a collar that says, Please ask to pet me. Im friendly.Theres a lot of pressure, said Leah Braswell, a teammate of Oberlanders. Having the dogs here is a great distraction, a way to take a break from all of that. Theyre happy all the time. It just makes you happier. You can forget about whatever race you just had.Given their gentle, soothing nature, therapy dogs have become more and more familiar around hospitals, retirement homes, hospice centers and disaster areas. Theyve provided comfort to veterans and those suffering from autism. Theyve even done time in prisons, nudging inmates along the road to rehabilitation.Theres no judgment from these animals. Fido merely wants to love and be loved. For someone in pain or anguish, they can be an invaluable companion.At the Olympic trials, their role is a bit different.But its really in keeping with the extensive training that Domesti-PUPS puts its animals through before sending them out into the world.Anywhere theres an elevated level of stress, we can take our dogs and try to de-stress them, said Sandy Ludwig, who works with the organization. These dogs are just lying there, waiting to have theiir bellies rubbed or their ears scratched.ddddddddddddThats what Morgan Weinberg had in mind for the trials, an all-or-nothing meet that not only determines the powerful American team for the Rio Games, but also serves as a chance for many up-and-coming athletes to get their taste of a big-league atmosphere.There are more than 1,700 swimmers in Omaha, most of whom have no chance of qualifying for the Olympics.Yet the burden of competing weighs on all of them to some degree.This is the first time weve ever done it, said Weinberg, the program and services manager for USA Swimming. Im an animal lover myself, and I was trying to think of different ways in the athlete lounge that they would calm down and kind of just relax and have fun. I like dogs, I thought about dogs, and it just kind of evolved into therapy dogs.She got in touch with Domesti-PUPS, which is providing about 30 dogs for all but the final night of the eight-day meet, which runs through Sunday.Four dogs at a time work in three-hour shifts -- some rotating through during the morning preliminaries, others stopping by for the evening finals. They even have their own security credentials, complete with a photo.On the very first night of the trials, Ludwig knew she was on to something when a swimmer spent 20 minutes petting one of her pups.About an hour later, she came back and said, `That was a best swim I ever had, Ludwig recalled. She said, `I was so relaxed when I went and jumped in the pool.Thats not all. Many swimmers are missing their own dogs, the ones they had to leave at home, so theyre eager to just roll around on the floor with a canine they can at least temporarily call their own.Oberlander is one of those going through pet withdrawal.She has a pair of miniature dachshunds, Biscuit and Bella.I miss them soooo much, Oberlander said. When I come in here and see the dogs, its just like home.Theres one Labradoodle in particular who caught her eye -- and her heart.Hes very fluffy. I like him the best, she said, breaking into a big grin. Its like bringing a piece of Pennsylvania here to Nebraska with me.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
