David Warner’s constant poking spurred me on Stokes

first_imgLondon: England all-rounder Ben Stokes has revealed that it was David Warner’s constant efforts to break his concentration that egged him on further en route his epic unbeaten 135 in the Ashes Headingly Test.“I had extra personal motivation due to some things that were said to me out on the field on the evening of day three when I was trying to get through to stumps,” Stokes revealed in an extract published in Daily Mirror.“A few of the Aussies were being quite chirpy, but in particular David Warner seemed to have his heart set on disrupting me,” he said.“He just wouldn’t shut up for most of my time out there. I could accept it from just about any other opponent. Truly. Not from him, though.“The changed man he was adamant he’d become, the one that hardly said boo to a goose and even went as far as claiming he had been re-nicknamed ‘Humble’ by his Australia teammates, had disappeared. Maybe his lack of form in his new guise had persuaded him that he needed to get the bull back,” he added.Stokes helped England snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with that epic knock as England squared the five-match series at 1-1.England was shot out for 67 in the first innings and were 286-9, still needing 73 more runs to win with a target of 359 when No. 11 Jack Leach walked out to bat and joined Stokes at the crease to share a historic stand and take England over the line.Talking more about how Warner tried to get under his skin, Stokes said the fact that the southpaw did not get runs in the Ashes put him under more pressure to contribute in some way.“Although he’d enjoyed a prolific World Cup campaign, he had struggled with the bat at the start of the Ashes and was perhaps turning to his old ways to try to get the best out of himself. The nice-guy act had done nothing for his runs column.“I muttered ‘Bloody Warner’ a few times as I was getting changed. The more time passed, the more it spurred me on. All kinds of ideas of what I might say to him at the end of the game went through my head. In the end, I vowed to do nothing other than shake his hand and say ‘Well done’ if I could manufacture the situation.“You always shake the hands of every member of the opposing team at the end of a match. But this one would give me the greatest sense of satisfaction,” he said.

Figgins expects luck to change

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. – As Chone Figgins saw it this off-season, his optimism for the upcoming season far outweighed the hit he took to his pride. After a substandard year that Figgins blames mostly on bad luck, he got just the words of encouragement he needed from good friend Juan Pierre, the Dodgers’ new center fielder. Figgins wondered aloud what changes he might be able to work on this spring to change his poor fortune. He thought that maybe a switch here or a tweak there might prevent some of the hard-hit balls that found opponents’ gloves in 2006. Pierre suggested he keep things just as they are. “Talking to Pierre he said, `Man, it’s just one of those years,’ ” Figgins said about the conversation with his former roommate in the Colorado Rockies organization. “He said he had one in ’05. He said it was the best year he had, but he ended up hitting less than he usually did. But because he was consistent, he was able to look at his numbers on paper and see that he had decent numbers.” In 2005 with Florida, Pierre batted .276, a full 50 points less than the previous year. But he still scored 96 runs, stole 57 bases and gave his typical RBI production with 47. Figgins batted .267 last season, nearly 20 points below his career average. But he had 93 runs scored, 52 steals and had 62 RBI, which is a career high. Where Figgins proved costly were his struggles batting right-handed (.233) and his .336 on-base percentage, mostly out of the leadoff spot. center_img “With Figgy, there is no question that he attacked the ball better than his stats and average indicated,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “It’s just one of those years where he did hit the ball better than his numbers reflected. I think right-handed he wasn’t as crisp. “He has a nice right-handed swing he just has to start to get that confidence back.” After complying with the Angels’ request to try a larger glove, Figgins said the team has requested he try an even bigger size. Figgins said he was using an 11 -inch glove last season and changed to an 11 -inch glove this off-season. He is now awaiting for a shipment of gloves more than 12 inches in length. Brandon Wood took about 45 ground balls at third base and doesn’t think it will be that tough to adapt after playing shortstop for nearly all of his baseball career. “The main thing for me is to make sure my timing is on,” Wood said. “I won’t be able to track the ball all the way into the hitter.” Scioscia is starting to feel good about progress being made by Bartolo Colon and Jered Weaver. Both had a long-toss throwing session for a second consecutive day. doug.padilla@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2731 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
