WHETHER by accident or design, in-form Steve Smith is a product of Michael Clarke’s captaincy and Australian cricket is better for it.

    YES, we know. New Zealand is on a record ten-game winning streak and beat Australia in the pool stage. But here’s why the World Cup final is a different story.

    IMAGINE if Shane Watson won the man of the match award in the World Cup final. It could redefine his entire career. The masses might have to — gulp — applaud him.

    ZLATAN Ibrahimovic’s opening goal for Sweden today was brilliant and hilarious, while he also struck from the penalty spot. Wrap of Euro 2016 qualifying here.

    KEVIN Muscat says Melbourne Victory players will be “hurting” despite their 2-1 win over Central Coast last night and desperate to prove their worth in next week’s vital clash in Wellington.
