Odisha bowled out Maharashtra twice in 62. Detlef Schrempf Thunder Jersey .4 overs on the second day to wrap up an innings victory in Wayanad. This was the second two-day finish of the season; the first was in the seventh round when Baroda beat Bengal by 21 runs in Lahli, where the seamers took 38 of 40 wickets to fall.The seamers thrived in Wayanad too, taking all 21 wickets to fall on the second day. Anupam Sanklecha claimed the first when he had Basant Mohanty lbw for 12 and dismissed Odisha for 319 from an overnight 311 for 9. In reply, Maharashtra crashed to 94 all-out in 26 overs. Asked to follow-on, they slumped to 46 for 7 in 26.2 overs, before twenty-somethings from wicketkeeper Vishant More and Sanklecha dragged them past three figures. Maharashtra were ultimately brushed aside for 107 in 36.4 overs. The 376 balls they faced in this match was their lowest of any match in the last ten seasons when they were bowled out twice.All the same, players from both teams agreed that the pitch was not unplayable, but did pose difficult questions with variable bounce. Several balls reared from a good length and rapped the gloves of the batsmen, while some from the same area kept low, according to Maharashtras Chirag Khurana, who managed three runs across both innings.One ball bounces from a good-length area, and the same ball then keeps low from the same spot. The bounce, or lack of it, was more tough on the second day, Khurana told ESPNcricinfo.There was some grass on the wicket, but it was not rolled enough or spread well. The sun was not out at all on the second day, the wicket was slightly damp, and seamers enjoyed bowling. You can see all 21 wickets went to seamers, but I cant call it an unplayable wicket. They [Odisha] batted well and got over 300.Many of our batsmen were bowled or lbw. The same ball that got the lbw sometimes bounced more, and some other batsmen were caught out in the slips. We did not have much of a clue [whether to go forward or back]. Several batsmen were hit on the gloves, and Shrikant Mundhe was hit by a ball, which rose from a good-length spot and hit his abdomen guard. He needed to be taken to the hospital, and he now is okay.Maharashtra captain Swapnil Gugale, who was caught behind for 12 in the first innings, and then pinned lbw by Suryakant Pradhan for 8 in the second, said that wayward bowling and fielding also contributed to the teams undoing. After Maharashtra opted to bowl, Sanklecha and Mohsin Sayyed reduced Odisha to 161 for 6, before fifties from Biplab Samantray and Deepak Behera lifted Odisha to 319.Our bowling was not up to the mark, Gugale said. We were up and down, and we didnt field well and let them off. That made a difference. They [Odisha] went on to make 300-odd runs, and on this kind of a wicket it is difficult to chase a big score.Samantray, who top-scored in the match with 89 and added 98 for the seventh wicket with Deepak Behera, put Odishas total down to a combination of wise shot selection and Maharashtras bowlers not attacking the stumps enough.The pitch had no devils. It was not unplayable, Samantray said. Shot selection was the key on this pitch, which was damp and had inconsistent bounce. We had the plan to play as straight as possible. At the same time, me and Deepak punished the bad balls. Maharashtras bowlers mostly bowled outside the stumps; they could have done better to make use of the variable bounce on the middle-stump spot. But we made a conscious effort to bowl right on the middle stump and trouble the batsmen. I concentrated on the stumps and finished with my first four-wicket haul. In the end, their batsmen could have applied themselves better as well. Domantas Sabonis Thunder Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Steven Adams Thunder Jersey . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. http:///...rook-thunder-jersey/ . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead.Novak Djokovic faces Dominic Thiem at The O2 on Sunday as he begins the defence of his World Tour Finals title and his pursuit to reclaim the world No 1 ranking. Djokovic saw his 122-week hold on top spot ended last weekend when he was usurped by Andy Murray as the worlds top ranked player. World No 1 permutations How the No 1 ranking can change hands...again Having previously admitted that his desire and love for the game had waned, it may be that this latest development adds fuel to the Djokovic fire as he looks to win a sixth World Tour Finals and end the season on top of the standings once again. The 29-year-old has won the season-ending event the last four years and is a two-time Grand Slam champion this year, winning the Australian and French Opens to take his career tally to 14 major titles. Djokovic has endured a frustrating second half of the season and has lost his world No 1 ranking to Andy Murray He also owns a dominant 23-0 record against his three rivals in the Lendl group and first to challenge that will be the youngest man at this weeks finals - Thiem. Ivan Lendl Group Novak Djokovic (Serbia) Milos Raonic (Canada) Gael Monfils (France) Dominic Thiem (Austria) World Tour Finals: Profiles We look back on the year so far for the eight contenders Thiem too has had his struggles over the second half of the year but claimed four titles over the course of the regular season The Austrian is making his debut at the event and after a sensational start to 2016, tailed off over the second half of the year.He has never won a set against Djokovic, losing all three meetings including their most high-profile encounter at the French Open semi-final earlier this year where Djokovic won 6-2 6-1 6-4.In recent weeks the 23-year-old has suffered surprise defeats to Jack Sock, Viktor Troicki and Alexander Zverev and has not gone beyond a quarter-final since the middle of September. Introduucing the underdogs What do we know about debutants Dominic Thiem and Gael Monfils However Thiem is not to be underestimated having claimed four titles this year, only Murray (eight) and Djokovic (seven) have won more although the last of those came back in June. Kevin Durant Jersey. .Djokovic too has wobbled since his dominant first half of the year - he has been beaten by Marin Cilic and Roberto Bautista Agut since using the US Open final to Stan Wawrinka and he has won just one title since completing his career Grand Sam at Roland Garros and that came with victory at the Rogers Cup in Toronto in July.Whether Thiem can capitalise remains to be seen but the opening singles match of the tournament promises to be an intriguing one. World Tour Finals: The Groups We run through the contenders and their groups at The O2 As is the case for every session the doubles will kick off the action from 12pm on Sky Sports and the first match of the week will see Mike and Bob Bryan taking on Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo.
