The Royal London One-Day Cup is back. Sunday signals the return of domestic 50-over cricket to the calendar as Somerset host defending champions, Gloucestershire, live on Sky Sports 2 from 10.55am.Who are the form men heading into the competition? Who is looking to pick up where they left off last year? And who might just take us by surprise? Here are six to watch out for... Michael Klinger Michael Klinger averaged over a hundred for Goucestershire in last years Royal London One-Day Cup An obvious choice, due to his sensational success in 2015 as Gloucestershire won the competition. Klinger was top-scorer with 531 runs across his eight matches - notching three hundreds and two fifties - at an astonishing average of 106.20. All the more astonishing as Klinger was out for a duck in the final, but Gloucestershire won regardless, beating Surrey by six runs in a thrilling finish at Lords.The 35-year-old is in the form of his life, having also hit three hundreds and averaged 81.75 for Gloucestershire in the 2015 NatWest T20 Blast, while he also has two first-class tons to his name in his first three Specsavers County Championship appearances for the Bristol-based county this summer.Chris Nash Chris Nash upstagged Chris Gayle with a century as Sussex beat Somerset in the T20 Blast Talk about being in top form, youve got to be in fairly decent nick to outshine Chris Gayle in T20 cricket, and thats just what Nash did on Gayles opening night for Somerset this season. With the Sky cameras circling, it was Nash who starred, smashing a maiden T20 ton (112no off 64 balls) in an emphatic win - Gayle managing just five.It was a knock indicative of Nashs super start to the 2016 season with Sussex. He has 523 runs, two hundreds and two fifties to his name already, at an average of 65.37. A consistent performer in white-ball cricket over the years for the seaside county, Nash struggled in 2015 with only 49 runs across his four RL One-Day Cup matches, but looks set for a resurgence this year.Brett DOliveira Brett DOliveira has impressed with the bat for Worcestershire this season Another in-form opener also makes our list, though 24-year-old DOliveira is a greater all-round threat with his ability to bowl leg-spin. Its with the willow, however, that DOliveira - grandson of the late, great Basil - has truly come of age, cracking a maiden first-class double-hundred for Worcestershire against Glamorgan earlier this year.DOliveira is also another to impress on Sky and in front of our travelling pod, smashing an unbeaten 62 off 38 balls to beat help the Rapids beat the Birmingham Bears in the T20 Blast - one of three wins in their opening three fixtures. He is one of a number of impressive youngsters at New Road - also keep an eye out for Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who hit a maiden T20 ton in the win over Durham Jets.Dan Christian Hobart Hurricanes all-rounder Dan Christian hits a six onto the roof of The Gabba in the Big Bash. How can you possibly not include a man responsible for hitting a six onto the roof of The Gabba? Sure it was in a different format, as Christian played for Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash over the winter, but Christian was hugely impressive when playing for Nottinghamshire in the 2015 One-Day Cup.The Australian smacked three fifties in five innings, averaging 62.75 at a strike rate of 135.67 and he was equally destructive with the ball, taking nine wickets at an average of 19.77 last year. Christian is set to wreak havoc once again with bat and ball, re-joining Notts for this years competition as well as the T20 Blast. Gareth Batty Gareth Batty celebrates as Surrey beat Essex in the opening T20 Blast fixture of the summer The evergreen Batty is well worth watching out for, mainly for his heart-on-the-sleeve captaincy for Surrey - twitching, grimacing, ranting away after most deliveries. But the 38-year old off-spinner is also still a wily performer with ball in hand, as his 7-32 in Surreys recent County Championship defeat to Somerset proved.Battys 2015 RL stats dont exactly jump off the page, but his 11 wickets across 10 games at an average of 36.36 were just two fewer than the leading spinners in the competition, Samit Patel and Scott Borthwick. Those 11 strikes as skipper very nearly saw his side lift the trophy before their heart-breaking collapse at Lords.Kyle Jarvis Kyle Jarvis has been in fine fettle for Lancashire in four-day cricket so far in 2016 Arguably the most in-form bowler in county cricket right now. In fact, the joint-most, as Jarvis shares top spot in the County Championship leading wicket-taker table with Lancashire team-mate, Neil Wagner - 28 strikes each. Jarvis has best figures of 6-70 this summer, and a match best of 11-119 made against Surrey.His average per wicket is 23.10, and while Wagner is equal to or better than Jarvis in all those categories, this will be the New Zealanders first exposure to the white ball in county cricket, so weve plumped for Jarvis, who took seven wickets in the tournament in 2015 at 26.28.Watch the Royal London One-Day Cup on Sky Sports, starting with Somerset versus Gloucestershire from 10.55am, Sunday, Sky Sports 2.

Vapormax Plus Baratas . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Former Oakland coach Dennis Allen once described defensive tackle Stacy McGee as a potential foundation piece for the Raiders.For his first three seasons, McGee gave Oakland little production and the Raiders enjoyed almost no success. McGee is now emerging as a key contributor for Oakland just as the team appears on the way to a turnaround.McGee is coming off his most disruptive game as a professional, getting 1 1/2 sacks last Sunday in a 34-31 win over the San Diego Chargers. The game helped Oakland get off to its first 4-1 start in 14 years and move into a tie for first place in the AFC West with Denver.We all push each other to be good, McGee said. Ive been pushing myself a lot harder this past year, probably a lot harder than I have in the past to be better and help this team win.McGee has played a key role in Oaklands success after recording just a half-sack in 42 games. He played mostly as a reserve his first three years after being picked in the sixth round in 2013.McGee entered this offseason as a bit of an afterthought. But he earned a starting role with a strong training camp and has gotten more opportunities as a pass rusher with Mario Edwards Jr. sideline by a hip injury.Stacy has done some good thing for us, coach Jack Del Rio said. Hes flashed some rushes and been really close on a couple this year, so it was nice to see him finish on the two.Del Rio has seen a change in McGees confidence this season and compared the hump move he used on one of his sacks Sunday to Hall of Famer Reggie White.McGee said hes been working on that move for a few yyears since former teammate Antonio Smith taught it to him.dddddddddddd.I guess it took a couple of years to really figure it out and get it done, he said.McGee has been one of the few early bright spots on a defense that is allowing 7.0 yards per play -- more than any team has given up in a full season since the 1970 merger -- and 27.4 points per game.He provided the inside pressure that had been missing with Edwards hurt. With more production from McGee up the middle, edge rushers Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin should get more opportunities to get to the quarterback and allow the defense to thrive.It really is everything, Del Rio said about the inside rush. Were going to get a lot of attention on the outside guys. We really look forward to getting Mario back here, which we will. But in the meantime, guys like Stacy and (Jihad Ward) have to step up and be a presence in the middle for us to really have the kind of rush were looking for.McGee said despite the strong start personally and for the team, now is not the time to get comfortable. The three years of losing to start his career, when Oakland went just 14-34, still weigh heavily on him -- especially after spending his college career at a school with as much success as Oklahoma.Its hard to deal with, especially coming from schools where Im winning and to come here, McGee said. Im just glad we turned it around and figured it out.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store ' ' '
