Time to end India's dominance: Azhar

Isolation has made Pakistan's standards slip in limited-overs cricket, and the team came to the Trophy with low expectations on it. He should not have said such things. There is no reason for you (Sarfraz) to rejoice. But (we have told him) if he has any doubt he should let us know. One concern for India is that there hasn't been much work for the likes of Yuvraj Singh , MS Dhoni , Kedar Jadhav , Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja to do with the bat and Pakistan could exploit this, ...

Ken Owens will captain the Lions against the Blues in the second clash of their 10-match tour, with the Wales hooker having battled back from an ankle problem that had threatened his place on the tour.

The two circled each other up and fought at a measured pace early, but Brunson's long reach allowed him to drill the Aussie with a powerful overhand left to the head. "The Hulk" came right after da Silva and wobbled him with a loopy right hand to the head and then floored him with a left hook to the jaw. Both men looked exhausted coming out in round three, but Lewis has seemingly recovered from the heavy blows he took in the second. Read More »

Warburton led the Lions to a disappointing 23-22 loss to the Highlanders midweek and coach Warren Gatland opted instead to hand Ireland flanker O'Mahony the skipper's armband. Mako Vunipola, Jamie George and Tadgh Furlong continue their combination in the front row. Sean O'Brien hasn't had a lot of rugby either. Gatland has changed the entire starting 15 that lined up against the Highlanders, continuing the policy of sweeping rotation that he has used throughout the tour. Read More »

"The boys now need to be level-headed and focus on playing good cricket". During the course of the innings, Kohli became the fastest batsmen to score 8,000 runs in ODIs. That group victory was their 12th in 15 World Cup, Champions Trophy and World T20 matches (also one tie) and so there's certainly the potential for mental baggage to be brought along. Read More »
