    Dave Warner’s battles continued, while Steve Smith was perfect. See who starred and who struggled in the semi-final against India.

    AUSTRALIA’S Aaron Baddeley is the talk of the US PGA Tour after a scarcely believable birdie made him clubhouse leader in the Texas Open.

    CHAZ Mostert topped the opening V8 Supercars practice session at a soaking wet Symmons Plains circuit for the Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint.
