Former England wicketkeeper Jack Russell used to paint when he wasnt playing cricket, while India captain MS Dhoni can often be found scooting along on a motorbike. For New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor, though, time away from the middle means one thing - the chance to get his caffeine fix.Ive definitely got a coffee problem, said the Black Caps star during his stint as an IPL pundit for Sky Sports. Away from cricket, if Im not in Nandos, Ill definitely be in a café.Im getting quite fussy about my coffee now, so I need a really strong one - Im into cortados at the minute but the trouble is I cant get by with just one, its usually three or four! Ross explains how he looks to accelerate towards the back-end of a one-day innings If Taylor has been swigging fancy beverages lately, hes been doing it on the South Coast of England, having signed a deal to play for Sussex until July.The 32-year-old, who has made scores of 12 and 22 in his two Championship innings for the Hove outfit to date, is relishing his role as a senior player.I have had several enjoyable seasons at the IPL but I have always dreamed about playing county cricket, said Taylor, who played T20 cricket for Durham in 2010. I haven’t been brave enough to go to the beach yet – it’s been pretty cold, to be fair – but I may have a dip when the family arrives in a few weeks. Ross Taylor My kids will be starting school soon so I thought that before I get too old and too slow Id better come and find a team and Sussex have been very welcoming.Ive had a pretty slow start but hopefully I can score some runs and pass on some knowledge.I have played in a fair few tournaments, at home as well as in the Caribbean and India, and have learnt lots along the way, so I enjoy trying to upskill not just young players but coaches as well.But which of Sussexs young guns have impressed Taylor most? Sussex pacer George Garton played for England at this years Under-19 World Cup (Left-arm seamer) George Garton has got a big future - he is pretty raw but he is fast and has an x-factor with the ball - while I like the look of (all-rounder) Ollie Robinson, too, he said.He had an outstanding time last season and while it will be tougher for him this year with people looking out for him a bit more, I expect him to go well again, with both bat and ball.Taylor will next be in action for New Zealand in August when the Kiwis embark on a two-Test tour of South Africa.Kane Williamson is now captaining the Black Caps following Brendon McCullums retirement from international cricket prior to the World Twenty20, a tournament in which Williamson steered his side to the semi-finals. Kane Williamson is third in the ICC Test batting rankings McCullums New Zealand earned plenty of admirers - and on-field success - due to their aggressive approach to the game, but Taylor insists the future is equally bright with Williamson at the helm, even if the new captain and the old one are vastly different characters.Brendon brought the team together - he stamped his authority with the bat and as captain and really gave us the belief to go out and express ourselves, said the batsman.He was right out there and changed the field every two balls because he got bored, while Kane is a lot calmer but Kane, who will have learnt a lot from Brendon, captained well at the World T20, so the world after McCullum looks pretty rosy. The depth is as good as it has been in a long time – we’ve got 15 or 20 players who can play for New Zealand on any given day, whereas in the past we may only have had seven or eight class players. Ross Taylor on New Zealand Williamson led by example long before he was appointed skipper, the 25-year-old averaging almost 62 with the bat in Test cricket in 2014 and a whopping 90.15 in 2015, notching nine tons in that time.He is a world-class player who has been up there with Virat Kohli and Joe Root over the last few years, added Taylor. We always knew he was a quality player but he has probably exceeded expectations a little bit.I love batting with him as we do tend to get runs together, him more so than me! We bat differently, hitting balls in different areas, and he makes my job easier when I come out to the middle as he can dig in or score quickly, depending on the situation.We have a good understanding - albeit that weve run each other out a few times!The IPL is live and exclusive in its entirety on Sky Sports.

And though his comeback night didnt quite go to script, Bryant couldnt help reflecting on the work necessary to get back on that court -- and all the months of steady labour ahead to reclaim his game. Bryant had nine points and eight rebounds in his season debut, but Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in the trade-depleted Toronto Raptors 106-94 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday night. http://www.baseballmarinersofficial.com/kyle-seager-jersey-c-12/. The alley-oop looked easy -- just like everything else after halftime for the Miami Heat. James scored 32 points, Wade added 22 points and eight assists, and the Heat trailed by 11 early in the second half before running away to a 107-88 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.

It was the quickest three-goal sequence in Olympic history, with the latter two coming just eight seconds apart. Kessel, Lamoureux and Kendall Coyne all scored twice for the Americans, and Molly Schaus made 10 saves in her Sochi debut.BALTIMORE -- On a day when the Ravens induct linebacker Ray Lewis into their Ring of Honor, another former member of the teams esteemed defence makes his return to Baltimore. The circumstances will be vastly different. Lewis retired in February after leading the Ravens (1-1) to their second Super Bowl victory. He will be hailed Sunday for a sensational 17-year career and for spending all of it in Baltimore. Ed Reed was also a key player on the 2012 world champions, and for 11 years he served as a standout free safety with the Ravens. On Sunday, he will be the enemy. Reed and the Ravens failed to agree to terms during the off-season, so the franchise career interception leader signed as a free agent with Houston. After missing two games with an ailing hip, the 35-year-old Reed is expected to make his debut with the Texans (2-0) on Sunday. "Im feeling a lot better and trying to push it a little bit more to see exactly how I feel if I go full throttle," Reed said Thursday, acknowledging his availability will be a game-time decision. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco can hardly imagine what its going to be like to see Reed in a Houston uniform. "I knew Ed Reed as a Baltimore Raven before I started playing on the Baltimore Ravens," said Flacco, now in his sixth season. "Weve faced old teammates before. But the fact that all the fans know him as a Baltimore Raven, and the fact that I was a fan of his at one point, yeah, it probably makes it a little bit different." Reed harbours no ill will toward the Ravens for letting him walk. "Theres no bad blood on either side," he said. "I know how this business works." Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said, "He moved on, and we moved on." Reed cant wait to see his old friends in Baltimore. "I never thought Id be in these shoes," he said. "But its an awesome feeling to go back to see my brothers, see coaches and just talk about football. I know were going to talk about football and just family in the short period of time we can kind of catch up Here are five things to know about Ravens-Texans: CLOSE CALL: After two straight games decided on the final play, the Texans wouuld love a lopsided win.dddddddddddd Something like last years 43-13 rout of the Ravens would do quite nicely. In that game, Houston had four sacks and two interceptions. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh would prefer to forget that debacle, but he was forced to pull out the tape this week. "You have to watch it," Harbaugh said. "We watched it very carefully to see how they attacked us and what they did to play the type of game they did against us." STARS INJURED: Ravens running back Ray Rice was held out of practice after straining his left hip flexor in last weeks 14-6 win over Cleveland. His status for Sunday is questionable. If Rice cant go, Bernard Pierce will get the call. Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson sustained a concussion during a 30-24 overtime win over Tennessee, but is expected to start. He has 29 catches and two TDs in four regular-season games against Baltimore. HOME SWEET HOME: The Ravens are 34-7 at home under Harbaugh, including 22-3 over the last three-plus seasons. Houston is 0-3 against Baltimore on the road, including a 20-13 playoff defeat in January 2012. "Thats a tough place to play and its my understanding theyre retiring Ray (Lewis) jersey or something on game day," coach Gary Kubiak said. "Im sure that will add to the emotions, so we better stay focused." SACK HAPPY: Houstons top priority on offence will be to protect quarterback Matt Schaub from Baltimore sack specialists Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil. Between them, they have 152 career sacks. "Its a very tough combination," said Schaub, who has been sacked only four times this season. "You cant slide your protection one way or the other. Youve got to be honest on both sides." BUDDING RIVALRY: This will be the fifth game between the teams since the start of the 2010 season, and its beginning to feel like a grudge match. "We have played in some good football games with them," Kubiak said. "I dont expect this to be any different." Houston linebacker Brian Cushing added, "Were two competitive teams. Whether were playing here or there, we know its going to be a very good football game."
