ROASTED by the sun, injuries and India’s batsmen on day one, a rattled Australia will look to hit back on day two of the second Test at the Gabba.

RAHEEM Sterling eased the pressure on under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool swept into a Capital One Cup semi-final showdown with Chelsea.

BEFORE Mitchell Marsh goes about dominating world cricket, he needs to first find a way of conquering his own body.
