AN umpiring farce threatens to take some shine off the historic pink ball Test, after New Zealand were robbed of a chance to take a stranglehold on Day 2.

THERE was the historic nature of the occasion to be handled but in the end it was simple cricket strategy that prevailed, writes Ian Chappell.

Despite the A-League’s mostly good news story, football fans feel they have not been met half-way. In the past week they have prosecuted a strong case writes Richard Hinds.

ANOTHER dire performance will heap pressure on Adelaide United coach Guillermo Amor, whose side continued their winless run as Melbourne Victory returned to the top.

ADAM Scott is standing over his second last shot of the day. If he is to win the 2015 Australian Open, Scott must nail this five iron. Perfectly.
