We knew that we were going to play on a used wicket at some stage in this tournament, and certainly we found out the other day that today was going to be on a used wicket. "We did prepare, Pakistan bowled well but we didn't adjust and 200 isn't competitive, 250-270 would be a good score". Openers Azhar Ali (76) and Fakhar Zaman (57) then helped knock off the inadequate total with nearly 13 overs and eight wickets to spare as England bowed out of their own tournament at the semi-final stage.

KAZAN , Russia (AP) - Cristiano Ronaldo is in the spotlight again, but this time not for his skills as a player.

A 30-second spot during the final to be broadcast by Rupert Murdoch's Star Sports is expected to cost almost 10 million rupees ($155,267), far higher than the 1 million rupees that advertisers pay on average for most Indian shows, said a person involved in buying ads.

In her clan is her manager Virginia Ruzici, the only Romanian woman to have won a grand slam at the French Open in 1978.

Toni presented his nephew with a replica of the Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy in what is his final French Open before handing over full-time to 1998 Paris champion Carlos Moya. As a tired Wawrinka sliced a volley into the net on match point Nadal collapsed on his back on the baseline.

Their captain Sarfraz Ahmed said they had quickly forgotten the opening loss to India and simply focused on the next game in their bid to win the Champions Trophy for the first time.

Title-holders India will be firm favourites against a Pakistan side who were the lowest ranked of all the teams taking part in a tournament featuring the world's top-eight one-day global sides. "But someone asked me before the tournament who would be in the final and I said Pakistan. We just want to enjoy the finals and we deserve to be there", the skipper had a calm confidence in his tone.
To this day, Pakistan has never beaten India at the World Cup. So I know we have to learn a little bit more how can we stop runs and put pressure on the opponent. Yet Pakistan have rejigged the side since then. Back spasms take two days anyway. Azhar scored 76 off 100 balls followed by Fakhar Zaman who scored 57 in 58 balls.
Perhaps, Fox was asked after his solo workout, he was motivated by that? "You can say that about anybody".

Lonzo goes on to note that although he's not as outward with his confidence as his father, he believes he has the same confidence within himself, and credits LaVar for ...

With the win, Mr. Hunt improved to 13-11-1 while Mr. Lewis dropped to 18-5 and saw his winning streak halted to six. For his part, Mr. Lewis hinted that the fight could be his last.

McIlroy (78) and Day (79) are coming off their worst scores ever in a U.S. Open , mainly because they couldn't keep it out of the thick fescue that frames the wide fairways at Erin Hills . He's back at 1 under as he finishes his round on the front nine. After Thursday's round, McIlroy and his coach Michael Bannon discussed his swing issues.
Captain Kohli will also look to use off-break spinner Kedar Jadhav - who took two vital wickets in his previous match against Bangladesh - alongside Hardik Pandya to deceive the Pakistan batsmen. "The boys now need to be level-headed and focus on playing good cricket". While India is all set to take on Pakistan after defeating Bangladesh in semi-finals, Pakistan has chose to opt out from the mega event citing safety issues as their major area of concern.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo appears determined to quit Spain as he believes he is being singled out for unfair treatment by the tax authorities. "Very few clubs can meet his expectations".

Madrid have expressed "full confidence" in Ronaldo and believe he will be proven innocent of any wrongdoing, but nonetheless the Portugal worldwide is claimed to have made an " irreversible decision" to leave Santiago Bernabeu.

James and his Cavaliers will battle the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night. Compared the traditional 5-on-5 game that most players are used to, this 3-on-3 version might require a different skill set. Even if James did want to play, he may not have had an option to do so. Warriors forward Draymond Green echoed those sentiments on Sunday. "I think it's great for basketball", LeBron said.
We got "em out of here quick". Green's shirt had the staple "Q" on it, but instead of spelling out Quicken, it spelled out "Quickie" with the Larry O'Brien Trophy. If it was just a case of too many people riding on the back, I'm going to be extremely disappointed. James was shirtless, working out in a gym. Green was among those who commented on James' post, saying, "Them dubs finally made him go bald!" Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Houston Rockets guard James ...
