Swashbuckling batsman, aggressive captain, and all-round good bloke… Nasser Hussain discusses the outgoing - in more ways than one - New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum. Raiders Jerseys China . Its a cliché to talk about cricketers being in the entertainment business but thats exactly what McCullum was in.He was never there to plod along and get a score for himself - he was the original see ball, hit ball guy who was there to show you what he could do.That came from his immense ability, though - it wasnt a case of Brendon waking up one morning and thinking Im going to transform the game, he knew he had the skill to back it up.Dont forget this is a man with a Test triple hundred, three more double hundreds, and 200 sixes in one-day international cricket!His fast hands and fast feet have been incredible to watch, with some of his knocks - particularly the 77 from 25 balls he scored against England in the World Cup, when the opposition didnt know what had hit them - have been incredible. McCullum marmalised England at the 2015 World Cup It can be easy as a player and a captain to be consumed by the game but if you worry about getting out and play fearful cricket, you never express yourself.McCullum never had that problem and always played fearless cricket, probably because its in his nature to be a bit of a gambler, a bit of a risk taker.Proof of that was that he often used up DRS reviews in the first over!If Brendon batted for an hour-and-a-half he could change the game - but he definitely changed the game as a captain in the modern era. Nasser says the Kiwi was a galvanising captain He worked out that in order to win matches you had to take wickets and have catchers in place - in the 2015 World Cup he pretty much adopted Test-match fields.You have to have the attack to deploy those fields - theres no point setting three slips and gully if your bowler is bowling leg-stump half volleys - and he had that in Trent Boult and Tim Southee.Players responded to him, though, and bought into his ideas - I guess it was hard not to if he was attacking all the time and telling you do the same. McCullums final ODI series ended with a win over Australia The other thing to mention is that he is a really nice guy.I know that doesnt really matter in the world of professional sport but he is, and I think it is a real shame that we are losing someone like him at the peak of his powers.At 34, going on 35, he could still have a good few more years left in international cricket and thats something the ICC and these T20 franchises around the world need to think about.How will you remember McCullum?

The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling "puts an end to my dreams of being a top player," the 27-year-old Troicki said in a statement.

Listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050 at 8pm et/5pm pt and get updates from TSNs Hockey Insiders and chat with other fans on our Game Night Blog with TSNs GameTracker. The Penguins came into this best-of-seven series as favorites, but are down three games to none to the fourth-seeded Bruins. Boston won Games 1 and 2 in Pittsburgh by a combined 9-1 margin before taking a classic double-overtime battle in Wednesdays home contest. Pittsburgh is now faced with the daunting task of becoming just the fourth team in NHL history to come back from down 3-0 to win a series. Only the 1942, Toronto Maple Leafs, the 1975 New York Islanders and 2010 Philadelphia Flyers have won series after falling into the dreaded 0-3 hole. Of course, the Flyers comeback three years ago was against the Bruins in the conference semifinals, but Boston went on to win a Stanley Cup in 2011. "Whats at stake for our future is a chance to play Game 5," Pens head coach Dan Bylsma said on Thursday. "Tomorrow is an elimination game for our team. We have one game. We have 60 minutes. Win one game and move on to the next day." After getting thoroughly outplayed in the first two games at home, Pittsburgh turned in a strong performance in Game 3, only to lost the contest in the closing minutes of the second OT. Patrice Bergerons redirection with 4:41 remaining in double overtime sent the Bruins to a 2-1 victory and pushed Pittsburgh to the brink of elimination. Jaromir Jagr won a battle along the left-wing boards in the neutral zone against Evgeni Malkin and fed ahead to Brad Marchand, who waited until Bergeron had a step on Pens defenseman Brooks Orpik before dishing across for the game-winning tip. "We found a way, I guess. Thats the only way youve got to look at it," said Bergeron. "It wasnt necessarily our best effort in the first 60 (minutes), but I thought we re-grouped well in overtime and we had some really good chances in the first overtiime. Cheap Raiders Jerseys Online. We kept battling and said that we have to find a way somehow. We did in the second overtime." David Krejci, who leads all NHLers in goals (9) and points (21) this postseason, scored early in regulation for the Bruins, who can advance to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in three seasons with a win tonight. Tuukka Rask was solid once again, stopping a playoff-high 53 shots in the win for Boston, which improved to 6-2 as the home team in these playoffs. Pittsburgh is now 3-3 as the visiting team in the 2013 postseason. Chris Kunitz tallied in the second period for the Penguins, who are one loss away from being dumped from the postseason by the Bruins for the first time since 1980. Boston was also the last team to sweep Pittsburgh out of the playoffs, taking four straight in the quarterfinal round in 1979. Tomas Vokoun acquitted himself well in defeat, making 38 saves, two days after being pulled from a 6-1 loss which saw him give up three goals on 12 shots in less than one period. "The whole game we felt really comfortable with our play," said Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. "We felt like it was just a matter of time before we were going to get it. Unfortunately we didnt, they hung around and got one at the end." Boston did receive a bit of bad news in Game 3, as forward Gregory Campbell suffered a broken right fibula while blocking a shot and will miss the remainder of the playoffs. Campbell was hurt during the second period Wednesday when he slid to block a slap shot from Malkin during a power play. He limped through the remainder of his shift before heading to the locker room and did not return. In 15 games this postseason, Campbell posted three goals and four assists. He has been a key component on Bostons penalty kill and part of Bostons highly effective fourth line. Kaspars Daugavins has been added to the lineup and will skate with the third line. Chris Kelly has been moved to the fourth line and will centre the duo of Shawn Thronton and Dan Paille. If the Penguins win on Friday, Game 5 of this series will be played Sunday evening in Pittsburgh.
