Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : October 9th 2016 Contents INDORE, India---Virat Kohli hit his 13th Test century
as India reached 267-3 at stumps on the opening
day to take control of the third Test against New
Kohli was 103 not out, and Ajinkya Rahane unde-
feated on 79, as the pair put on 167 runs for the
It was a hard grind as New Zealand bowled and
fielded with discipline in the 90 overs. But Kohli and
Rahane didn t give away chances with 119 runs coming
in the final session.
Kohli faced 191 deliveries and hit 10 fours for his
sixth hundred in 17 tests as India captain. Rahane
reached his 50 off 123 balls, and hit nine fours and
a six overall.
For the first time in this three-match series, India
didn t make too many mistakes on the first day.
While it had frittered away advantageous positions
in both Kanpur and Kolkata, Kohli and Rahane batted
with calm and poise.
They played out time---even as the Black Caps
restricted easy scoring opportunities---and now stand
a good chance of batting New Zealand out of the
match on the second day.
"The position we are in, we will try to bat as long
as possible and get a big total tomorrow," said Chetesh-
war Pujara, who hit 41. "We will look to get at least
400 runs. And once we bowl, our spinners will have
some assistance from this wicket and we will look
to exploit that as the match progresses."
New Zealand came close to ending the partnership
when James Neesham hit the stumps directly as
Kohli scampered across for his 100th run. But Kohli
had safely made the crease, much to the delight of
the crowd at Indore s first day of test cricket.
"I was at point and was pretty confident he d drop
and run to get it as quickly. So I took a couple of
steps in, but Virat made ground quite comfortably,"
Earlier, New Zealand had struck to leave the hosts
at 100-3. Gautam Gambhir (29) returned after a test
gap of two years and put on 26 runs with Murali
Gambhir hit two sixes off Matt Henry (0-65) in
his short stay that ended when Trent Boult (1-54)
trapped him leg before wicket. Jeetan Patel (1-65)
had Vijay caught at short leg by Tom Latham.
The pitch started taking some turn after lunch.
Mitchell Santner (1-53) bowled Pujara with a ball
that pitched on middle but turned away enough to
knock back the off-stump. He had put on 40 runs
for the third wicket with Kohli

LOS ANGELES---There was no text
message that specifically gave Derrick
Rose permission to have sex with his
ex-girlfriend, but for the NBA star the
signs were clear, he testified in a law-
suit that accuses him and two friends
of raping the woman.
It started with a morning text mes-
sage from the woman saying Rose was
the reason she "wakes up horny,"
including a photo of herself in her
nightshirt and continued with other
texts about sex throughout the day.
Rose said Friday he surmised that
the "horny" text had triggered consent
from that point on, and that was only
reinforced for him by their sexual his-
tory, sex acts she engaged in with him
and his personal assistant that night
at his house and an invite hours later
to her apartment.
"I was assuming that all of us going
over there that she wanted to have sex
with all of us," Rose testified in a mat-
His description of the incident dif-
fered dramatically from the woman s
testimony, which lasted a day and a
half in Los Angeles federal court.
The 30-year-old woman denied hav-
ing sex earlier in the evening at Rose s
Beverly Hills mansion, though her tes-
timony was clouded by her claims that
she blacked out and could only piece
together the evening through short
"flashes" of memory and by reviewing
a flurry of text messages she apparently
was able to send despite being drunk
and, possibly, drugged.
At the end of testimony, Rose s
lawyer asked a judge to declare a mis-
trial because of a profane text message
that he said the woman s lawyers had
failed to reveal until Friday.
The judge said he would take the
issue up Tuesday morning before the
Knicks point guard is scheduled to
resume testimony. The judge ordered
Rose to return to the stand even if it
means missing a preseason game the
night before in New York.
Rose, 28, was called to the stand by
the plaintiff s lawyer as a hostile witness
to help make the plaintiff s case that
the woman never gave consent to have
sex with him and his longtime friends
and assistants, Randall Hampton and
Consent is the main issue for the
jury of six women and two men. The
men, all friends since adolescence in
Chicago, have denied the allegations
and said the woman consented. (AP)
