Saturday to maintain a realistic shot at locking

Isa Guha will be part of the Sky Sports team for our coverage of the Womens World T20 - and she expects her old England team-mates to triumph. Cheap Hawks Jerseys . Find out why below... In 2009, Guha won the Womens World Cup with England in Australia and the Womens World T20 on home soil. She made over 100 one-day appearances for her country and was ranked No 1 bowler by the ICC. Isa Guha gives her predictions for the Womens World T20 tournament Winner: England Maybe a bit of bias involved, but I do think the England women have a good chance. The pace bowling has generally been consistent and there is enough experience to create a breakthrough if opposition teams go hard. I think the spinners will have to be smarter, especially if the boundaries are brought in, but I think the real key lies with our batting. We saw fearless batsmanship against South Africa with the women playing freely and Im hoping that they are able to transfer that to the World T20 especially during the knockout stages. The ability to cope under pressure will be huge. Watch England Women in action in the ICC Womens World T20. Coverage begins on Sky Sports on 15th March Most sixes: Lizelle Lee (South Africa)We saw some explosive hitting in the recent series v England. South Africa seem to have a few big hitters but I think Lee will have the most impact. Most wickets: Anya Shrubsole (England)Anya has been very successful in India and Bangladesh in the past, mainly because shes retained the ability to swing the ball early. In T20, I think its really valuable to have a bowler who can bring the ball back into the right hander at pace. If Plan A fails, then the No1 ranked T20 bowler has variations up her sleeve and can bowl excellent yorkers. Sarah Taylors batting and keeping will be crucial for England Englands key player: Sarah TaylorNot just with the bat but also behind the stumps. If she has a good tournament then I can guarantee England will, too. She is experienced enough to shoulder the responsibility with the bat and her consistency in this format in recent times will be valuable to the side going forward.Rising star: Smriti Mandhana (India)At 19 years of age, shes already making waves across the international circuit. A classy and elegant left-hander, Smriti had a successful tour of England in 2014 and recently had Australia scratching their heads in their own backyard. She comes into the tournament in some very good form against SL too. Having played well across the globe, I look forward to watching her bat in conditions that she is most familiar with. Remember the name Smriti Mandhana - you may be hearing it a lot Best thing about touring India: The unfaltering passion for the game - and, hopefully, some big crowds.It all depends on how well the games are marketed to be honest. At the last ICC womens event in India there wasnt much attention, but then hardly anyone knew a World Cup was going on. More TV games and an Indian team that have been doing well recently will hopefully arouse interest. A full house at Eden Gardens?

New York enters the weekend on 41 points, just one point above the postseason divide. The club was unable to strengthen its position last time out as it suffered a 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy, snapping New Yorks four-match unbeaten run. The Red Bulls were slightly shorthanded in the defeat to the Galaxy as Lloyd Sam and Ambroise Oyongo were sidelined through injury. But RBNY head coach Mike Petke believes that Sam should be fit in time for Saturdays crucial clash with Houston. Lloyd is looking good, and Lloyd is expected, knock on some wood, to be back for this weekend, said Petke in his weekly conference call on Tuesday. His was a minor thing that we didnt feel too comfortable taking a chance with. Oyongos situation is a bit worse, Petke continued. Hes got what looks to be a decent hamstring injury. His (availability) wasnt even a question for last game. ... You never know. Hes young and he could have a heck of a recovery in the next couple days, but Im planning on not having him again. New York is certain to be without Jamison Olave after the Colombian picked up his fifth yellow card in the defeat to L. Hawks Jerseys Outlet. A. on Sunday, leaving Petke to pick between Matt Miazga, Armando and Damien Perrinelle to partner Ibrahim Sekagya in the center of the clubs defense. New York still boasts a quality attack that features superstar Thierry Henry and leading scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips. Wright-Phillips has bagged five goals against the Dynamo this term, leaving the visitors with plenty of work to do in order to contain the Englishman. Weve just got to apply a lot of pressure on him, make it difficult for him on the night, thats the best thing we can do - try our best to make sure we dont give him anything too easy, Dynamo defender Kofi Sarkodie told the clubs official website. Were doing better, getting some shutouts, scoring goals so weve just got to keep that going ... I think collectively its just been a good effort from everybody. Last-minute tackles, guys getting in the box - and weve gotten goals early which I think has helped. Houston enters the weekend in fine form, riding a five-game unbeaten run in league play that has seen the club take 11 points from a possible 15. The Dynamo are still alive in the playoff hunt with 36 points from 29 games, but they must pick up three points at Red Bull Arena on Saturday to maintain a realistic shot at locking down a postseason berth. Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Vikings Jerseys Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap 49ers Jerseys Cheap Giants Jerseys Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Packers JerseysCheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Patriots Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Lions Jerseys Cheap Saints Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys ' ' '
