MI, RPS, KKR & SRH to fight for 2017 IPL glory


Earlier, some late power hitting from explosive Dhoni helped his side to post a formidable first inning total of 162. That is a big disappointment, especially since he's experienced, having played for Australia's Test and ODI teams. He has done a lot for us, very proud of him. Shardul Thakur chipped in with the all important wicket of Parthiv, and with two more wickets towards the end, he combined with Sundar's efforts to floor MI. Read More »

Manchester City on verge of Champions League qualification

A point at Watford will guarantee a top-four place for Pep Guardiola's City, but they can secure third place - and, crucially, avoid the Champions League play-off round - if they win.

Cech tipped the ball wide only for Sunderland to be awarded an indirect free-kick they couldn't turn into a goal. Read More »

In domestic cups, I won in Spain, Italy, Portugal, I normally have a lot of matches. "We qualified by winning the FA Cup, and because only ourselves and Southampton went through into that first round we got a bigger share of the market pool, and also the performance of Southampton and Tottenham later on in the competition meant that we picked up a bigger share of that market pool and will do throughout the knockout stages".

Alonso is yet to see the chequered flag this season, having retired from the first three races of the year and failed to start last time out in Russian Federation. Stoffel Vandoorne: "I've definitely had one of my best Fridays so far". Alonso marked a cautiously optimistic tone about the race on Sunday, when his auto will have a much tougher test of its more than questionable reliability. Read More »

Celtics' Isaiah Thomas upset at refs after finishing with 0 free throws

In another, they throw passive-aggressive jabs at each other, suggesting the other sinks to guerrilla tactics they must have the strength to ignore. We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. That was left to the Wizards, who figuratively and effectively took him out of the game when he was on the court. Coming off ball screens, coming off pin downs. Read More »

May 17 at 21:45 on Wednesday, the return game of the semifinal round of the playoffs of the League of England Championship will take place, in which Sheffield Wednesday at the Hillsborough stadium will play against Huddersfield . We were a bit unlucky with some decisions from the referee or we were not clinical enough in front of the goal. When we played against them they didn't have too many opportunities so I think we can control them, especially at home when we play our game. Read More »

Stones set to return for Man City's final two games

I am out. Sure. But it was a different Argentine who was singled out for praise by Guardiola after the victory over West Brom. They have also scored 15 goals from corners; another league-high.

Daniel Levy hands over keys to White Hart Lane

Arsenal's late surge had put Juergen Klopp's side under enormous pressure but they responded in style and will definitely finish in the top-four if they beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield on the final day of the season next Sunday. Stuck behind one of White Hart Lane's inconveniently-placed structure beams, his amusingly bad view is typical of England's older stadiums and is exactly the sort of thing the club's new 61,000 seater will sort out.
