All Blacks blank Wallabies 36-0 to retain Bledisloe Cup

The All Blacks silenced their critics with a physical and polished performance to retain the Bledisloe Cup with a 36-0 victory over Australia that also quelled concerns the wheels might be coming off their World Cup title defence. Flyhalf Richie Mo'unga scored a try and slotted nine points with the boot at Eden Park before he went off with a shoulder injury that could cause some concerns for coach Steve Hansen's World Cup plans. Aaron Smith, Sonny Bill Williams, Sevu Reece and George Bridge also crossed for the All Blacks, who were humbled 47-26 last week in Perth. That defeat...

Water bacteria cancels Tokyo 2020 paratriathlon test swim

The swimming section of a paratriathlon test event for Tokyo 2020 was cancelled Saturday due to high levels of bacteria in the water, the latest in a series of difficulties over water quality and temperature.Olympic organisers have won widespread praise for their preparations but extreme summer heat and poor water quality have brought headaches at practice events, with less than a year to go until the opening ceremony.The International Triathlon Union (ITU) shelved the swimming leg after tests showed levels of e-coli more than double the acceptable standard.The 70 paratriathletes instead competed in a duathlon format with two runs and...

Smith and Archer hypnotise to leave second Test tantalisingly poised

A mid-afternoon duel between two contrasting, charismatic characters eclipsed the match situation at Lord’s for a while. For once the back-page headlines were trustworthy. The critical contest was between Jofra Archer, England’s newest and fastest paceman, and , the indomitable former Test captain of Australia returning to his cherished natural habitat in the middle order, and it had a full house spellbound. True pace bowling has always been a compelling spectacle and on the sort of balmy day when a post-prandial nap had its attractions Archer and Smith commanded the absolute attention of everyone. The rhythmic clapping of spectators in...

Lucas Moura earns Spurs draw at Manchester City as VAR history repeats

It was an extraordinary finale and, amid all the drama and utter confusion, spare a thought perhaps for those supporters who had happily left the stadium, believing they had just seen their team score a dramatic and joyous stoppage-time winner. What they had not accounted for was VAR concluding, after what felt like an age, that the shot from Gabriel Jesus had been preceded by a handball from Aymeric Laporte. Jesus had danced in front of the supporters, wriggling his hips, samba-style. Pep Guardiola and Sergio Agüero, who had fallen out so publicly earlier in the second half, had made...

The coach must be captain’s biggest ally

Ravi Shastri’s reappointment as chief coach of the Indian cricket team was widely anticipated, which makes it surprising that it should have evoked so much skepticism about how the decision was reached. Some have argued that the process was rigged, some others that since the outcome was known why go through a charade. But such criticism is churlish, shortsighted and more than anything else, demeaning of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). One can debate the choice made by Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shanta Rangaswamy. But I am loath to believe they would be party to ‘fix’ Shastri’s selection: unless,...

Bowlers put India Green on Top in Duleep Trophy

BENGALURU: Rain hampered the first day’s play between India Blue and India Green in the Duleep Trophy at Just Cricket Ground here on Saturday. Day’s proceedings were called off owing to bad light with India Blue placed at 112/6 . Ruturaj Gaikwad was the highest scorer for India Blue, while Ishan Porel bagged three wickets of Green. Unbeaten Ankeet Bawane (21 off 103 balls) battled out against the disciplined bowling by Green, especially the seamers. Accompanying him in the middle is Saurabh Kumar, who is batting on 2. Green skipper Faiz Fazal also tried a few overs from leg-spinner Rahul...
