"If he wants to pound our officers and stomp our officers, then he needs to pay the price and answer for his actions," Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney (left) said of LeSean McCoy. Earlier this week, John McNesby, president of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 5, told Philly.com , "Our guys look like they got the brunt of it, so we're waiting to see the outcome of the investigation. Maybe he should stay in Buffalo and carry on like an idiot in Buffalo."
It was supposed to be Brendon McCullum's day but it was opposing captain Steve Smith who made the right moves as Australia ended day one of the first Test against New Zealand comfortably in control in Wellington on Friday. Smith called correctly at the toss, made New Zealand bat on a green wicket and within two sessions the innings was over for 183.
Smith won a pivotal toss that helped his bowlers skittle the hosts for 183, and he then scored 71 to lead Australia to 147/3 in reply. Australia (1st innings): J. Burns c Watling b Southee 0, D. Warner c Watling b Southee 5, U. Khawaja (batting) 57, S. Smith c and b Craig 71, A. Voges (batting) 7.
On Tuesday, Smith replaced Aaron Finch as skipper in the shortest format of the game following a 3-0 whitewash against India in the just-concluded T20 series. Waugh said that the decision to select Smith as Australia's T20 captain made sense and observed that it would have been harder for the 26-year-old, who also captains his ODI and Test side, to play in a T20 game without being the skipper of the side, News.com.au reported.
Smith called correctly at the toss, made New Zealand bat on a green wicket and within two sessions the innings was over for 183. Craig was unbeaten on 41 at the end with Boult out for 24. But Smith and Usman Khawaja then took control and proved the pitch was playable as they put on 126 for the third wicket.AFP.

Steve Smith, an organizer of the 100th Newport Winter Carnival, said People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, launched its alert last week despite his reassurances that no pigs would be harmed during the Saturday event. Smith said the plan is for the kids to be surprised that the pig is a costumed character.

Australian skipper Steve Smith has continued his emphatic journey as a batsman and a leader in Test cricket, with the visitors taking control of the proceedings at Basin Reserve, Wellington, on Friday. With every player chipping in with the goods, Australia look like they are nearing the pinnacle spot in the ICC Test rankings and would hope to hold on to it for a long time.
Smith won a pivotal toss that helped his bowlers skittle the hosts for 183, and he then scored 71 to lead Australia to 147-3 in reply. Australia bowled first on a green pitch at the Basin Reserve and McCullum was out for a seven-ball duck as New Zealand found itself in almost irreversible trouble at 51-5 within the first hour. Smith was dropped by Craig at slip when on 18 and was fidgety at the crease until the pitch calmed down and he could play with more confidence.
Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja hammered home the advantage their bowlers had established when they took Australia to 147-3, a deficit of just 36 runs, at the close of the opening day's play in the first Test against New Zealand on Friday. Australia, however, seized control of the match shortly after Smith won the toss and simply bowled straight and waited for the ball to do just enough to catch the outside edge.
