South Africa set England an almost insurmountable 474 to win the second test after declaring its second innings on 343-9 on Sunday.England saw out four testing overs before stumps to be 1-0, but has two full days left to survive if it is to save the match and preserve its 1-0 lead in the four-test series.Never mind that England would set a world record for the highest fourth-innings score to win a test, it also needs to make the biggest fourth-innings score ever at Trent Bridge.Only once, New Zealand in 1973, has a team made over 400 in the final innings at Nottingham.South Africa’s big lead was built on second-innings half-centuries by opener Dean Elgar (80), Hashim Amla (87) and captain Faf du Plessis (63), who is on course to lead his team to a series-leveling victory on his return after missing the defeat at Lord’s for the birth of his first child.South Africa also had some fun at the back end of its second innings as the declaration approached in the late afternoon, with Vernon Philander (42) and Morne Morkel (17 not out) given license to swing at anything in a final hurrah.Morkel connected for three fours and Philander heaved Moeen Ali away for two big sixes off successive balls before falling caught and bowled to the spinner.Ali finished with 4-78 to lead England’s bowling effort but the Day 3 pitch didn’t offer the same pronounced swing and seam movement for the quick bowlers as it did in the early stages of this test.advertisementInstead, there were signs late in the day of uneven bounce as the surface wears away.Elgar and Amla, continuing their partnership from Day 2, put on 135 for the first wicket in a stand that wasn’t flashy but ground down England’s bowlers and ensured South Africa held the upper hand from the start of the day onward.

Joni Henderson became only the second head coach in Georgia women’s basketball history, replacing Andy Landers, who led the program to prominence in his 36 years.Henderson, who was recruited by Landers but signed with Alabama, joined the Bulldog staff as an assistant four years ago. She spoke of her opportunity to SB Nation’s Swish Appeal.Question: What were your feelings when you were told you would be the next head coach at Georgia?Crenshaw: “Pretty overwhelmed. I was speechless. . .Your head starts spinning because you know the process goes pretty quickly. I started thinking I need to call my mom, my dad, my fiancé (USC assistant Darius Taylor), I need to have a team meeting. So immediately, you’re listening to them, but you’re also thinking about all these other things that you’ve kind of had in your mind, but you don’t really want to take yourself there until you know for sure.”Q: How did the players react when they found out you were going to be their next coach?JC: “It was excitement all the way around, and honestly that’s a great feeling to know that you have their support. They were so good during the transition period, just doing everything we asked of them and really moving business as normal in terms of academics, on the floor workouts, and in the weight room. When you see their reaction it just makes it all the more worthwhile.”Q: How do you feel learning under (Andy Landers’) stewardship and knowing that he is a big believer in you?JC: “I have had an opportunity that a lot of people don’t get, and I recognize that. I tried every day working with him and for him not to let him down. My biggest thing is, I don’t want to disappoint. I have been like that since I was a kid, I never wanted to disappoint my parents, my teachers, my friends. . . That really drives me and fuels me.”Q: How do you feel that you are going to put your stamp on Georgia women’s basketball?JC: “I think I’m a no-nonsense person, I think I am a player’s coach and that they can relate to me, I think I am a role-model for them. The first thing you have to have is credibility and I’ve played in the SEC at a high level, I’ve been in this conference for several years and I’ve coached for 13. So I have the credibility, but after that you have to earn their trust. Once you do those two things, the rest kind of falls in place.”Q: Have you given any thought to the fact that you are now only the second full-time head coach in the school’s history? What does that mean to you?JC: “Yes and no. Obviously I know that, and there’s times where I’m like, ‘wow,’ but there’s times where it doesn’t faze me. I have been going on autopilot and adrenaline since the announcement. I was completely aware of it before though, realizing whoever was named would be only the second full-time coach in Georgia history, it’s incredible. I think it really just speaks to what Coach Landers has done not only in the community, but for Georgia as well.”Q: What is your vision for Georgia women’s basketball going forward?JC: “To put a good product on the floor. To have kids who represent themselves, their families, this university, and their communities. To have first-class players not only on the floor, but in the classroom and the community. We want to be visible and accessible to the public and our fans. We want to play hard.”

Whilst as you Premier, and as a woman, I support the daily recognition of our women, as wives, as mothers, as sisters, as daughters, and as friends, today is especially marked for the reminiscence of the women who throughout time have endured the struggle and those who led and fought the fight for equality within their nations. Industrially, it has been a long but good fight for the women of many countries and indeed it has been a victorious fight for the women of these Turks and Caicos Islands.Over the years we have witnessed the evolution of the role of the woman from predominance in the home, to predominance in the school, to predominance in the workplace, and in recent years, predominance in politics. In fact, the non-traditional role of the woman has overtaken the role of males in many aspects and the paradigm shift has seen gender inequality tipping towards the male in 2017.Whilst our success as women industrially is significant and should be celebrated, we must also strive to strike and maintain the balance as the career professional woman and the nurturer family woman to ensure that there is no renunciation of our role in the home and the society, and that we continue to play our part as mothers, wives and as participants in civic and social organizations.We must continue to support the family unit realizing that, as feminists, we are ultimately responsible for the teaching and nurturing of our children through love, kindness, helpfulness and as the weavers of the moral and social fabric of our society.In recognition of the role that women play in our lives, we must also recommit to the support, edification and protection of our women. We must make every effort to ensure proper legislations, policies and facilities are in place and functional for the protection of our women. I am therefore calling on Governments the world over to do our utmost to ensure that our women and our girls are protected from domestic abuse and violence, and protected from rape, molestation and other sexual offences.Finally, let us also ensure that we continue to provide the fundamental access to systems and programs that will support female development and success, today an long into the future, so that we, as women, continue to be lifted up, honored, supported and recognized for the profound role that we play the world over and especially in these beautiful by nature Turks and Caicos Islands.Press release: TCIG Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo
