Steve Harmison was full of praise for James Anderson and Stuart Broad as Englands opening pair took a combined nine wickets on day two of the first Test against Sri Lanka at Headingley. Augusto Fernandez Jersey . England bowled the visitors out for 91 - enforcing the follow-on - after they had notched 298 in their first innings.Anderson took 5-16 to move him up to sixth in the all-time leading Test wicket takers with 438 victims and is the third-highest seamer on the list behind only Glenn McGrath (563) and Courtney Walsh (519). Watch the pick of the action from the second day of the first Test between England and Sri Lanka James Anderson has to be talked about as one of the greats of our game, said Harmison.McGrath finished when he was 36, Walsh when he was 38, so of course Anderson at only 33 can keep going and pass both of them.They are two of the best fast bowlers of all time, so people have got to be looking now and saying that Anderson is in that same league. Glenn McGrath took 563 wickets in 124 Tests for Australia People say Jimmy has struggled to bowl in the past at Headingley, but he was awesome today, as was Stuart Broad.Those two as a combination together are fantastic. For me, they are the best duo that England have ever had, theyve got to be talked about as one of the top combinations of all time.Today they got the ball to consistently land on the same length, knowing what the conditions demanded at Headingley. Englands Stuart Broad celebrates the wicket of Kusal Mendis Was I surprised what happened to Sri Lanka today? No. The Test match has gone the way I thought it would.Its tough on the Sri Lankans, as there are some young, inexperienced lads in there, and you could have put the most experienced batting line-up in the world out there against those two in those conditions, and they would have struggled.Its similar for England on the sub-continent - if they are presented with a raging turner in India this winter with three high quality spinners, it will be similarly tough. Anderson celebrates one of his five Sri Lankan wickets on day two Englands tail is up now, and the conditions are unlikely to change, so I expect they will bowl Sri Lanka out for a reasonably low total again tomorrow.England only bowled 36 overs, just over a session. The players are so fit now, and theyd normally expect to field around 120 overs. So from that point of view, Im not surprised they enforced the follow on. Theyve now just got to put in the same amount of effort as they would on a flat pitch.Its a great way to start the Test summer, and hopefully by the end of this Test, they will have set a benchmark that they can try to look to better in the two games left in the series, and against Pakistan later in the summer.Watch live coverage from day three of the first Test between England and Sri Lanka at Headingley, live on Sky Sports 2 from 10.30am on Saturday.

Zimmermann became the National Leagues first 16-game winner, pitching seven solid innings to lead the Washington Nationals past the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Wednesday night.HOUSTON - When James Hardens shooting percentage was down early in the season, Houston coach Kevin McHale felt he would figure it out.Sure enough. Harden turned it around in December.Harden scored 36 points, and the Rockets bounced back from consecutive losses with a 102-83 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night.James is just a hell of a basketball player, McHale said. I told him earlier in the year: The best news that we had was that we were winning games and he wasnt shooting particularly well.Harden shot just under 47.8 per cent this month after shooting 40.9 per cent in November and just 37.1 per cent in the opening month of the season.The performance against the Hornets was the NBA-leading 14th 30-point game this season for Harden, who leads the league in scoring. He made eight 3-pointers and also had six assists and seven rebounds.James Harden did a great job, teammate Dwight Howard said. He was on fire. He did a great job of attacking the basket and hitting those 3s.A big run to start the third quarter put the Rockets well ahead, and Harden put it away when he scored eight straight points to push the advantage to 99-79 with 2 1/2 minutes remaining and send the starters to the bench.I felt real comfortable, said Harden, who was 12 for 19 from the field. My shot felt good the entire night and I had confidence to shoot it.The loss extends Charlottes skid to four games. The Hornets played without leading scorer Al Jefferson, who is out with a left groin strain.Charlotte has dropped eight straight against Houston.Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Gerald Henderson scored 16 points apiece for the Hornets.Turnovers were the difference in the game, coach Steve Clifford said. Thats what got them going and theyre good at it. We had 18 turnovers mostly due to their good defence and they converted those to easy baskets.Patrick Beverley added 14 points for Houston, and Howard had 11 points and eight rebounds.A 9-2 run by Houston extended its lead to 85-72 midway through the fourth quarter. With Harden and Howard on the bench getting a rest, Donatas Motiejunas scored four points in that stretch and Josh Smith capped the run with a 3-pointer.Marvin Willliams hit a 3 for Charlotte with less than a minute to go in the third, but Harden answered with a 3-pointer to make it 76-68 entering the fourth quarter. Maxi Rodriguez Jersey. Houston had a slim 47-45 lead at the break, but opened the second half with a 13-4 run. Beverley had the first eight points of the run, including a pair of 3s.Howard collected his fourth foul on a charge late in the third and went to the bench for the rest of the quarter and the first minutes of the fourth.Joey Dorsey replaced him and drew his fourth foul early in the fourth on a charge where he knocked Williams to the ground. Williams hit his head hard on the court and left the game with what appeared to be a cut on the right side of the back of his head. He was attended to on the bench for a couple of minutes before being escorted to the locker room holding some gauze on the injured area.Clifford didnt provide an update on Williams after the game.___TIP-INSHornets: Jannero Pargo (lower back soreness) and Lance Stephenson (pelvic strain) were both out. ... The Hornets have lost 10 in a row in Houston.Rockets: Houston practiced on Tuesday, something it rarely does after back-to-back games. But McHale needed the practice time to help new additions Corey Brewer and Smith get up to speed. ... The Rockets played on New Years Eve for the 13th straight year and improved to 10-3 in those games. ... Terrence Jones (left leg nerve inflammation) remains out.JEFFERSONS INJURYThe Hornets said Tuesday that Jefferson, who leads the team with 18 points and 8.2 rebounds a game, will be out for four weeks with a left groin strain. But Clifford said Wednesday the centre could be out for a longer period.They dont really know, Clifford said. Its going to be when he feels better.Clifford said Jefferson has been playing through the injury for a while and that if it were up to the player, he would try to play through it.He just cant pivot off that one foot which is such a big part of his game, Clifford said. So we want to have it get back to the point that he can play pain free (and) thats what were going to do.UP NEXTHornets: Visit New Orleans on Friday.Rockets: Visit Cleveland on Friday.
