South Africa were rolled for 79 in Nagpur. And while the Indians are celebrating, the rest of the world is far from happy.

    IT wasn’t easy but Liverpool have made it through their Europa League group, mainly thanks to a brilliant performance from striker Christian Benteke.

    SHANE Warne says cricket must go pink or perish, issuing a rolled gold endorsement for the high stakes, inaugural day-night Test match in Adelaide.

    MAKE that nine goals in six games for Harry Kane who continued his fine form for Tottenham by scoring the winner in their Europa League game against Qarabag.

    IF YOU thought the introduction of the pink ball was revolutionary, just wait until you hear what Justin Langer wants to do to Test cricket.
