Captain Kohli aims to create legacy as he looks to unleash his batting powers at WC

Virat Kohli had just turned 18 when his father passed away on a cold December morning in 2006. Within hours, the overnight batsman was back at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium to help Delhi avoid the follow-on in a Ranji Trophy match. “I called my coach in the morning,” he would later tell CNN. “I said I wanted to play because for me not completing a cricket game is a sin.” It is this all-consuming passion that fuels the high-octane game of the 30-year-old who marries aggression and aesthetics in his batting, solemnising it with a single-minded devotion to his...

Arsène Wenger has described Arsenal’s predicament in heading to Baku for the Europa League final as “a little bit of a nightmare”. The club’s former manager, who left last summer after 22 years in the role and still describes himself as a fan, expressed disappointment that Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who signed for the club , feels because of safety concerns. Armenians are not ordinarily welcome in Azerbaijan because of the dispute over the Nagorno-Karabakh region and Mkhitaryan has spoken of his hurt to miss such a showpiece occasion. “That’s something that should not happen in football, in the modern world, that...

Pandit has tracked Jadhav’s progress since his younger days, having coached the Maharashtra U-23 side. “He (Kedar) definitely has a lot of talent and what he has proved in the last couple of seasons that he is a utility player and the best part is that Virat Kohli has used him for his all-round ability and not only for batting.

Aussies just majestic

The defending champions played scintillating cricket to win the World Cup with 11 wins on the trot. If they encountered problems on a few occasions they came through each time through a brilliant contribution from an individual. They lost Shane Warne before a ball was bowled as he flunked a dope test — caught for two diuretics his mother may have given for him to lose weight — and Jason Gillespie from injury. They took such losses in their stride, beginning with a win over Pakistan, their opponents in the previous World Cup final. A colourful World Cup hosted by...

"The Bundesliga is within reach for us," Union Berlin fans were signing before the game. Quite a change from their famous banner from two years ago, that read, somewhat sarcastically: "Crap, we're getting promoted!" About 4,000 of them are estimated to have traveled the 1,200-kilometer round-trip for the relegation game 2-2 draw at VfB Stuttgart. On a Thursday evening. This is hardly a one-off occurrence. Just last Sunday, as the Berlin side played its final 2. Bundesliga match of the season, more than 7,000 fans traveled to the other side of the country to see Union take on VfL Bochum....
