In his latest blog for Sky Sports, Ben Duckett reflects on a fantastic first Test for England in India despite the disappointment of it ending in a draw, and answers your Twitter questions. Red Adidas Running Shoes ... The boys put in an unbelievable performance in the first Test in Rajkot.Obviously it was a shame we couldnt quite get those final four India wickets and start the series with a win, but were all very proud of our efforts, and cant wait for the second Test to start on Thursday. Hasseb Hameed had a debut to remember, and I thought our spinners were excellent - I had a particularly good vantage point to watch them from at slip. England head coach Trevor Bayliss compares Haseeb Hameed to Kumar Sangakkara after his impressive debut Obviously Adil Rashid, with his seven wickets, stood out, but I also thought Moeen Ali and Zafar Ansari bowled brilliantly, but without much luck.Right, time to answer some of your Twitter questions...What has been your favourite moment in an England shirt so far? - ‏@Cesced4I think it has to be winning my debut Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong. Over my international career, I expect to have ups and downs as an individual, but its success as a team - getting to celebrate with your team-mates - that are the most special moments. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Who is the best table tennis player in the England team? - @Harry__HughesyIve been practising really hard, but Im not at the standard of some of the others yet. Of the boys that play it regularly, I hate to say it, but I think Gary Ballance is the best.Who is the most entertaining in the dressing room? - @Guly_MullaaaThats a difficult one to say. There are a few funny lads in the dressing room, and Im still only just getting to know a lot of them. But Id probably say Joe Root - just look at that Bob Willis impression he did, or whatever that was, last year. Watch to see if Ian Ward is interviewing Sky Sports Bob Willis or England batsman Joe Root Englands win in the 2015 Ashes Who in the England cricket team who do you look up to the most? - ‏@erzrocksAgain, Rooty. Obviously the skipper, Alastair Cook, is someone who I hugely admire. It is great to be able to play under him and learn from someone with such great experience, but Root is someone who I particularly look up to from a batting perspective - he plays in the manner Id like to for England, being positive and taking the game to the opposition.How many curries you had in tour so far on tour? - ‏@FrankEntwistleA lot. Particularly at the grounds during the games, at lunch. My curry of choice is butter chicken; pretty standard.How are the batsmen feeling after very good performance in the first Test? - ‏@piyushkashypxivEveryones feeling very good. Its a very positive dressing room at the best of times anyway, and was so even after the disappointment of losing the second Test to Bangladesh in Dhaka. To have three centurions in the first innings, and four in the Test was amazing, though obviously it was disappointing I couldnt score heavily myself. I feel in good nick though going into the second Test.Do you think Haseeb Hammed will be a future star? - @SimplyPogba1Its difficult to say, as its still so early in his career. But a few of us sitting on the balcony during his innings were saying how amazingly at home he looked in just his first Test. He bats like hes already a Test match veteran. Nothing seems to faze him. Former England captain Willis is predicting a long and successful Test career for Hameed Playing your reverse sweep, at what point do you decide to play the shot? - @harryjw_For me personally, when I play the reverse-sweep its completely pre-meditated. I try to get into position as early as possible, before even the bowler has released the ball.What was your biggest challenge when switching from first-class cricket to international? - @ShahzaibQ98Obviously Im still new to international cricket, so I can only really talk about what Ive faced so far - so in that sense, playing against high-quality spinners like Ravi Ashwin, No 1 in the world, and on turning tracks in the sub-continent, is unlike anything Ive ever faced in county cricket.What other player(s) from your England Under-19 days do you expect to join you one day in the senior team? - @T0MP0TTERJoe Clarke at Worcestershire is an unbelievable batsman and has already earned a call-up for the England Lions this winter. Plus, theres Matthew Fisher at Yorkshire - he was already leading our attack when aged just 16. Hes a very skilful seam bowler.

Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months. Former St. Louis Blues captain David Backes said he got goosebumps thinking about joining a team that already includes centers like Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.These guys get it, the free agent forward said Friday after signing with the Boston Bruins in the first 30 minutes of NHL free agency. They know what its going to take to win. Thats what sold me on it. ... If you have prominent players that are putting team first, the rest of the guys really have no choice.A two-time U.S. Olympian, Backes agreed to a five-year, $30 million deal with the Bruins and said he hoped to help the Original Six club return to the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. Listing off some of the players already on the roster, Backes said it was more of a retooling than a rebuilding.Some guys would have looked at it like, `Youve already got Bergeron and Krejci, where will I play? David said, `Boy, I get to play with Bergeron and Krejci, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said. These guys are going to be the leading core to get us where we want to go. The younger guys are going to have to get on board.Backes, 32, is the first major addition this offseason for a team that won the 2011 Stanley Cup and returned to the finals two years later. The team re-signed defenseman Torey Krug and bought out the contract of defenseman Dennis Seidenberg on Thursday. Free agents Loui Eriksson and Lee Stempniak agreed to deals with the Canucks and Carolina, respectively.I always thought Vancouver was a great city to play in and a great organization, Eriksson said.Also signing with Boston on the first day of free agency were defensemen Tommmy Cross and John-Michael Liles, goalie Anton Khudobin, and forwards Riley Nash, Tyler Randell and Tim Schaller. Adidas Running Shoes Outlet. heyre trying to get pieces back that will get them over the hump, Backes said. They barely missed the playoffs last year, and if they had (made it) I dont think anyone would have wanted to play them.Backes had 21 goals and 24 assists last season for the Blues. In a 10-year NHL career -- all with St. Louis -- he has 206 goals and 254 assists in 727 regular-season games.Backes, whos from Minneapolis, said it was difficult for his family to leave St. Louis, the team that selected him in the second round of the 2003 draft.It was tough in that its all Ive known, he said in a conference call with reporters. It happens a lot in this business, it hasnt happened to us. But change is good.Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said talks with his captain broke down over the length of the deal.I had no problem bringing David Backes back, and I wish we could have, he said. I wasnt comfortable with the term. It was problematic for me, personally, to (sign) out that far with players. Theres analytical data (that) shows where players play at their peak, and we wanted to try and stay within a window. We were ready to stretch that window but only to a certain level.But Backes said hes got a lot left.Im 32, not 52, he said. I think theres plenty of legs and energy left in me. I expect to still be at the top of my game.---AP Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this story.
