Colin de Grandhomme registered the best figures by a New Zealand debutant after his spell of 6-41 helped the home side seize the early initiative on day two of the first Test against Pakistan in Christchurch. Brandon Mashinter Jersey . The tourists were bowled out for just 133 before an impressive unbeaten 55 from Jeet Raval in his first Test innings helped the home side reach the close on 104-3.Earlier in the day Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bowl first on a green surface that had spent the previous day under the covers.No play was possible at the Hagley Oval on Thursday because of rain but the home side soon started to make up for lost time once play got under way on day two.Azhar Ali (15) was the first wicket to fall, cleaned up by a gem which nipped back through the gate to send his off stump cartwheeling and give the 30-year-old de Grandhomme a memorable first Test wicket.Tim Southees first four overs were a little wayward but a change of ends worked for him as Sami Aslam edged to Raval at second slip for 19 to make it 53-2.De Grandhomme took two more wickets in the first session after careless drives from Babar Azam (7) and Younis Khan (2) both ended up being caught in the slip cordon as the tourists reached 88 for 4 at lunch.And things didnt get much better for Misbah-ul-Haqs side in the afternoon as Asad Shafiq (16) poked at de Grandhomme to give Raval his third catch of the innings to make it 88 for 5.Sarfraz Ahmed then cut Southee to Todd Astle in the gully for 7 before Trent Boult bowled Mohammad Amir (3) with a vicious outswinger to leave Pakistan reeling on 114-7.Sohail Khan followed shortly after, chipping to Latham at mid-wicket to as de Grandhomme became the eighth New Zealander to take a five wicket haul on Test debut.Misbahs resistance (31 from 108 balls) came to an end when he miscued Boult to Kane Williamson at mid-off.Rahat Ali (0) edged behind as Pakistan were all out for 133 just before tea as de Grandhommes figures of 6-41 eclipsed Alex Moirs spell of six for 155 against England 65 years ago.Then it was the turn of the other debutant Raval to shine as he moved smoothly to 55* from 108 balls at stumps.He was well supported by Henry Nicholls (29 not out) after Tom Latham, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor had all fallen cheaply.The hosts will begin day three 29 runs behind Pakistan but if Raval carries on where he left off the headlines might be dominated by the new boys once again.Watch day three of the first Test between New Zealand and Pakistan live on Sky Sports 3 on Friday at 9.30pm. Joe Pavelski Jersey . -- During Kansas shootaround on Wednesday before the Jayhawks faced Oklahoma, coach Bill Self told Wayne Selden Jr. Brenden Dillon Jersey .5 million, two-year contract that runs through 2015. Venable, the son of former big leaguer Max Venable, will make $4. http://www.officialsharksnhlshop.com/joonas-donskoi-jersey/ . Tony Parker had 33 points and nine assists and San Antonio never trailed in a resounding 116-92 victory over Portland, bullying the younger Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.Chris Schultz was 2-2 in Week 2 and stands at 4-4 for the season in Schultz vs. The World. Now the CFL on TSN analyst is back with his picks for Week 3, including predictions for a big East-West battle between the Calgary Stampeders and Toronto Argonauts. Winnipeg at Montreal Cant see either team dominating but this will be the Bombers first game on the road so I give Montreal an edge. After two weeks Troy Smith has had a poor game followed by a better game. What Montreal needs is a clearly dominant game to acquire confidence that he is the quarterback of the present and the future. Lost in all the legitimate Smith talk is that Brandon Whitaker has put together a couple of productive games. After two years of injury-related absence he is one of the feel good stories of the year so far. Also after two games, theres good video on Gary Etchevarrys defence that give you one post snap look followed by everyone going everywhere after the play begins. Thats important because the first two games both Calgary and BC operate four-man fronts with three linebacker defences. Winnipeg is completely different and being able to study the fronts, stunts and blitzes helps everyone on the Montreal offence. Two good games for Drew Willy no doubt creates the question of can he perform at a high level in a third? Probably so but maybe just slightly below the first two games. Two excellent returners in this one, Demond Washington for Winnipeg and Larry Taylor for Montreal. In what could be a field goal game - I say Montreal by three in a fourth-quarter win. Montreal. Ottawa at Edmonton Not yet I say. Not yet for the Redblacks first win of the new organization. Both quarterbacks most exceptional skill is the courage to sit in the pocket, ignore pass rush pressure, and wait for the receiver to separate from coverage. And having that ability is something that must be exceptionally hard to develop. Kevin Labanc Jersey. . If Ottawa can establish Chevon Walker to keep Henry Burris out of too many second-and-long situations, Ottawa has a chance for that first win. If not the outside-in pressure from Howard and Willis will change the game. Defensive lineman Don Oramasionwu has been declared out of the season with a ruptured patellar tendon in his left knee. Eddie Steele has been a nice early season surprise as a defensive tackle but with Oramasionwu out then ratio adjustment is an issue. Bottom line, Mike Reilly is doing an exceptional job of sliding at the right moment to stay healthy and the more he plays the better he gets. Edmonton moves to 3-0. Calgary at Toronto Tough one to read as the Stampeders are coming off their bye week and the Argos are coming off their best game of maybe the last year and two games. Last week Ricky Ray put up a little over 400 yards against a good Rider front four and defence. Its a similar challenge this week as Calgary also has a solid front four and defence. Can Toronto keep Jon Cornish under 100 yards without middle linebacker Shea Emery? Probably not, but I like Ray to bring another "A" game and win on a fourth quarter shootout. Give me the Argos at home over the Stampeders. BC at Saskatchewan This will be a long week in Regina for Rider players. I would be surprised if they do not bounce back and show up emotionally this Saturday night. Anthony Allan may not be dominant and Darian Durant may not be exceptional. But pass rush and pass blocking win and I think Saskatchewan will perform well in both areas. As head coach Corey Chamblin expressed in his halftime interview against Toronto, "Our problem is an absence in fundamental football, the basics of the game". Maybe not a word-for-word quote but you get what the problem was. Not going to happen again. Saskatchewan over B.C.
