AUSTRALIA suffered a horrific batting collapse but is showing good fight with the ball in the World Cup clash against New Zealand. FOLLOW IT LIVE

    JAMIE Whincup continued his record breaking weekend at the Clipsal 500 by equalling Mark Skaife’s record of 90 race wins to become the second greatest race winning driver in V8 history.

    IT WAS heralded as a massive coup in the battle of the footy codes. AFL’s most powerful man helped make a play for a rugby league superstar and managed to snare him.

    West Indies skipper Jason Holder says all he could think of when AB de Villiers “took me apart” was to get the South Africa captain off strike.

    WEST INDIES suffered the heaviest ever World Cup defeat as South Africa captain AB de Villiers smashed the fastest 150 in the history of one-day cricket.
