perth_map

But then things started to fall apart up front as the 49ers gave the Vikings some looks they weren't expecting in a preseason game. Head coach Mike Zimmer is a defensive-minded coach who has not committed to using a fullback as anything more than a novelty (last season's fullback, Zach Line, rushed a total of seven times ), but coaches love hard workers and quick learners and Ham appears to fit that mold.

In the fourth over, Dickwella was given out LBW to a Bumrah (5-27) delivery but he used a review to overturn the decision with the ball pitching outside leg. Only Sachin Tendulkar (18,426), Sourav Ganguly (11,221) and Rahul Dravid (10,768) are now ahead of him on this elite list.
