Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 2nd 2015 Contents SHARJAH---James Anderson picked up
4-17 in a brilliant display of fast bowling
as England bowled out Pakistan for 234
on the first day of the third Test yester-
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who
won his sixth successive toss in a test
match and opted to bat, top scored with
71 with seven fours and two sixes before
falling to Anderson with the second new
Anderson combined with Stuart Broad---
who took 2-13 off 13 overs---to dismantle
Pakistan s top order before Misbah shared
an 80-run sixth wicket stand with Sarfraz
Ahmed, who made 39.
England, which trails the three-match
series 1-0 after losing the second Test by
178 runs, negotiated the two remaining
overs safely and will resume at 4-0.
Anderson and Broad virtually plugged
one end up for Pakistan s batsmen in a
combined 28.1 overs on a wicket which
already has shown ominous signs of plenty
England had only one worry on an oth-
erwise dominant first day when Ben Stokes
was carried off the field wearing a tem-
porary sling as he fell badly on his right
shoulder while attempting to catch Ahmed.
Pakistan s hopes of scoring heavily on
a slow surface were dented badly by
Anderson and Broad s incisive bowling
outside the off stump.
Azhar Ali, playing his first test of the
series after missing the first two due to
injury and the death of his mother-in-
law, was out for a duck after getting an
edge to Anderson s delivery in only the
third over of the morning.
Fellow opener Mohammad Hafeez made
27 and tried to raise the scoring rate by
hitting Moeen Ali for two boundaries
before he top edged the off-spinner and
was caught at midwicket as Pakistan
advanced to 87-2 at lunch.
Broad and Anderson bowled eight maid-
en overs between them after lunch and
were duly rewarded with the wickets of
Shoaib Malik, who made 38, and Younis
Khan for 31.
Broad, who conceded just one run in
his first eight overs, found the outside
edge of Malik s bat and Khan was trapped
leg before wicket by Anderson off a low
Left-arm spinner Samit Patel, drafted
in place of Mark Wood, had Asad Shafiq
caught behind off a delivery that spun
sharply from the right-handed batsman
as Pakistan faltered at 116-5.
Ahmed was twice lucky to escape late
in his knock when first Anderson couldn t
hold onto a sharp cut as the lone slip and
then Stokes awkwardly fell while going
for a catch.
Moeen Ali broke through the stand when
Ahmed needlessly lofted to midwicket
before Misbah looked for some quick runs.
He reverse swept Patel for successive
boundaries and then struck the left-arm
spinner for a six over long on in an over
which cost 17 runs before Anderson and
Broad finished off the innings.
England dropped wicketkeeper Jos But-
ler, and James Taylor got his first test in
three years, while Wood was rested due
to an ankle problem and Patel was included
as a third spinner.
Azhar Ali replaced opening batsman
Shan Masood while Pakistan brought in
fast bowler Rahat Ali for Imran Khan, who
injured his hand in practice last Friday.
Caddie opens up on
Tiger Woods' affairs
in tell-all book
WELLINGTON---Tiger Woods former caddie
Steve Williams has described his anger and frus-
tration at being "hung out to dry" by Woods
management when the golfer s infidelities were
revealed in 2009, and says he was sometimes
treated as a "slave" on the course.
A New Zealand newspaper yesterday published
a chapter of Williams tell-all book "Out of the
Rough" in which the New Zealand-born caddie
describes his reaction on learning of Woods extra-
marital affairs. Williams writes that he didn t hear
from his close friend Woods for four months as
the golfer s marriage, career and reputation fell
While Williams says he was angry to learn Woods
had cheated on his wife Elin Nordegren, "he was
still a friend in trouble and I was going to stick by
him. I did that even though people were accusing
me of being an enabler, an accomplice, saying I
was lying when I stated clearly that I knew nothing
Williams says his life became "absolutely mis-
erable" as details of Woods behavior emerged and
people suspected he had been aware of, or event
played some part in Woods affairs.
"People in my local community would front up
to me at the shops and call me a liar to my face,
and ask what are you doing with him? " Williams
wrote. "I repeatedly asked for Tiger s management
to release a statement that would clear me of any
involvement in this lurid news.
"They simply wouldn t do it because there were
others in his group who knew exactly what was
going on and management felt they couldn t single
out one person as innocent. Angry, frustrated and
hung out to dry, I was also in limbo about when
I would next work."
Williams said he didn t consider quitting as
Woods caddie "as I felt incredibly loyal to Tiger---
this was the toughest time of his life and I wasn t
going to ditch him."
"Tiger finally rang me on March 23 (2010). He
had already sent me an apologetic email when he
was in rehab. It was heartfelt and meaningful; he
was open, honest and remorseful and it reinforced
my thinking that because I was so straight up and
had such strong values, he felt he couldn t tell me
what was going on with his affairs."
Williams said that before resuming his 13-year
association with Woods he met with the golfer
and presented a list of demands.
"I wanted him to prove to me he could change
his behavior and show me---and the game of golf---
more respect," he said.
Williams said he often felt angry when Woods
"would flippantly toss a club in the general direction
of the bag, expecting me to go over and pick it
"I felt uneasy about bending down to pick up
his discarded club - it was like I was his slave," he
wrote. "The other thing that disgusted me was his
habit of spitting at the hole if he missed a putt.
Tiger listened to what I had to say, the air was
cleared and we got on with it---his goal was to be
the best player in history and my goal was to keep
working as best I could to help make that happen."

NEW YORK---Kenya s Stanley Biwott and
Mary Keitany swept the titles at the New
York City Marathon yesterday.
Keitany became the first woman to repeat
since Paula Radcliffe in 2008.
Biwott won his first major marathon title
after placing second in London last year.
He finished in 2 hours, 10 minutes, 34 sec-
onds, beating countryman Geoffrey Kam-
woror by 14 seconds. Reigning Boston
Marathon winner Lelisa Desisa was third
and defending champion was Wilson Kip-
Keitany finished in 2:24:25, beating
Ethiopia s Aselefech Mergia by 67 seconds
for the largest margin of victory since Rad-
cliffe s 2008 title. She pulled away around
the 21-mile mark to become the eighth
woman to win more than once in New York.
Ethiopia s Tigist Tufa took third.
Keitany, a two-time London Marathon
champ, had twice finished third in New
York before breaking through last year when
she won by just 3 seconds. That was her
first marathon since 2012 because of the
birth of her second child.
Mergia is also coming back from a long
break. Her daughter was born in July 2013
and she didn t run another marathon until
winning in Dubai in January.
Laura Thweatt of the U.S. was seventh
in her marathon debut. In the men s race,
40-year-old American Meb Keflezighi, the
2009 champ, was also seventh.
More than 50,000 runners are expected
to finish the 45th running of NYC Marathon,
completing the 26.2 miles through the five
