Chanderpaul hits magnificent 182 for Lancashire

first_imgVETERAN Shiv Chanderpaul shrugged off a thigh injury to hit a magnificent 182 as Lancashire totalled 470 on day two against Surrey at The Oval.The former West Indies Test batsman, aged 42 and 240 days, hit two sixes and 21 fours in his eight-hour innings.Overnight partner Jordan Clark departed for 140 after their stand reached 243.Paceman Mark Footitt claimed 5-118 for the home side, who lost Scott Borthwick to the final ball of the day to close on 112-2, 358 behind.Resuming on 294-6, Chanderpaul and Clark stayed together for another 24 overs before the latter was adjudged to have edged to Rory Burns at slip as he tried to sweep spinner Gareth Batty.But they had already set a new Lancashire seventh-wicket partnership record against Surrey, beating the 198 by Alexander Eccles and John I’Anson at Old Trafford in 1902.Left-hander Chanderpaul had earlier tucked Footitt away for two runs to reach three figures and he continued batting serenely through the afternoon session, despite needing a runner because of a thigh injury.Footitt removed Stephen Parry and Kyle Jarvis in the space of three balls, with the help of wicketkeeper Ben Foakes, and Chanderpaul was finally removed when he was caught at extra cover off Batty.After winning their opening game against Warwickshire, Surrey also made the most of a good strip at the start of their reply, with Stoneman and Burns adding 67.Stoneman then fell lbw to Clark for 40, and although Burns survived to stumps on 48, Borthwick’s exit – caught behind off Jarvis for 19 – was a disappointing ending for Surrey.(BBC SPORT)last_img read more

Kyle Connor, Jets agree to seven-year, $50M contract

first_img#NHLJets have agreed to terms with forward Kyle Connor on a seven-year contract with an average annual value of $7.14 million.DETAILS >> https://t.co/bRmvz1dViN pic.twitter.com/Az4Xo58ciA— Winnipeg Jets (@NHLJets) September 29, 2019Connor was drafted 17th overall in 2015 and debuted in the 2016-17 season. He played 20 games with the big-league club before he was sent to AHL Manitoba. Development in the minor leagues paid off; the Michigan native tallied 31 goals and 57 points the following year and finished fourth in Calder Memorial Trophy voting. Last season, Connor set career highs in goals scored (34) and assists (32) to finish third on the Jets in total scoring.The new contract keeps Connor firmly in Winnipeg until 2026, at which point he will again hit unrestricted free agency. The deal contains a no-trade clause in its’ final two years. Laine, in comparison, will still be an RFA when his contract expires in two years — at which point he will attempt to maximize his value further. For now, though, the Jets have both young stars locked in and ready to play as the team seeks a third consecutive playoff appearance next April.According to CapFriendly, the Jets now have about $7.71 million remaining in cap space. Should defenseman Byfuglien return to the team before the season’s first game, they will re-introduce his contract and slide just under the cap’s upper limit. After Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff signed Patrik Laine to a two-year bridge deal Friday, he said he had to “keep grinding” toward a deal with Kyle Connor, the team’s other remaining unsigned restricted free agent.Just one day later, his hard work paid off: The two sides agreed to a seven-year, $50M ($7.14M average annual value) contract Saturday. The new deal makes the 22-year-old forward the second-highest-paid player on the Jets’ active roster. Dustin Byfuglien’s salary cap hit is $7.6 million this season, but he is currently suspended by the team in anticipation of a decision on his playing future.last_img read more
