IN the last week we’ve seen two Tests finish without reaching the fourth day, yet only one of the pitches has been slammed by the cricketing public.

    A RACISM row hit popular US broadcaster ESPN when anchor Robert Flores took a stunning shot at colleagues suggesting they promoted a harmful double standard.

    LEADING trainers Danny O’Brien and Mark Kavanagh, along with Dr Tom Brennan, have all pleaded not guilty to knowingly administering cobalt to several horses.

    FORMER New Zealand cricket captain Chris Cairns has been cleared of perjury and perverting the course of justice in a UK court.

    NATHAN Coulter-Nile will find out on Tuesday whether a brutal suspension has cost him his place in the Test squad to face the West Indies.
