Allrounder Nitish Kumar has been named Canadas new captain in a 14-man squad to take on USA in the Auty Cup - which will be contested as a three-match 50-over series this year - beginning on October 13 in Los Angeles. The 22-year-old takes over from Rizwan Cheema, who ended his Canada career earlier this year to take up an offer from the Capricorn Commanders in the Masters Champions League held in the UAE. Kumar made his Canada debut as a 14-year-old, and has captaincy experience at junior level, having led Canadas Under-15 and Under-19 squads in the past. In addition to playing first-class cricket for MCCU Loughborough, Kumar was contracted to the St. Lucia Zouks in the Caribbean Premier League this year.Canadas chances of retaining the Auty Cup will be dented by the absence of three key players. Ruvindu Gunasekera, Navneet Dhaliwal and Jeremy Gordon, who had all been part of the ICC Americas combined team that went to Trinidad & Tobago in January for the WICB Nagico Super50, have been left out. According to Cricket Canada general manager Ingleton Liburd, the trio was unavailable for selection for the Auty Cup tour.Their spots have been taken by four uncapped players, including Bhavindu Adhihetty, who was part of the Canada squad at this years Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh. The others are Dilon Hyliger, Varun Sehdev and Shehan Kamileen.One other key addition to the Canada squad is the returning Nikhil Dutta. The offspinner was not a part of Canadas last touring side to the 2015 World T20 Qualifier in Scotland and Ireland, and his absence was felt. Canada had finished last in their group, having won the ICC Americas Division One Twenty20 championship earlier that year, when he was their leading wicket-taker.Canada will be coached by Davy Jacobs, the former South African first-class cricketer, who captained the Warriors franchise from 2008 to 2014. Jacobs, 33, had also fetched a $190,000-bid in the IPL auction in 2011 and represented the Mumbai Indians for two seasons. He now lives in Toronto and coaches at a local academy, in addition to guiding the national team. Noel Acciari Jersey . In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. Dit Clapper Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win.

He made both, giving the Kings a 120-119 lead with 33.8 seconds left.Cousins said Sacramentos issues have mirrored Lillards assessment of his own team.Throughout this whole season weve shown flashes of who we can be, but weve got to get past that stage of showing flashes and be the team that we want to be, Cousins said.Leonard made his first start of the season for the Blazers, who were without forward Al-Farouq Aminu for the second straight game because of a left calf injury.Aminu started the first eight games for the Blazers, averaging 6.4 points and 6.6 rebounds before he was hurt Tuesday nnight early in Portlands 124-121 victory over Phoenix.ddddddddddddAddressing the media before Friday nights game, Stotts said Aminu would be re-evaluated after two weeks.Leonards thunderous dunk put the Blazers up 32-27 late in the first quarter, and they led by 12 en route to a 62-57 advantage at the break.

Portland is 5-0 when Lillard and McCollum both score at least 30 points.BLOWING THE WHISTLECousins cant understand why hes not getting foul calls.I dont understand it, he said. I dont know what I have to do. I just dont understand it. I have to play through a lot. Im not really rewarded for it, but Im just trying to stay mentally strong through it.PERFECT 10Lillard has 306 points, most by a Trail Blazers player in the opening 10 games of a season.
