Steven Gerrard to turn down MK Dons job Steven Gerrard to turn down MK Dons job
- November 21, 2016

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has suggested that he is unlikely to reunite with former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. Gerrard is only 36; that sounds old for a footballer, but with modern nutrition, medicine, and fitness, it's perfectly possible to a later age, and Serie - which is a much slower league than the Prem - may suit Gerrard down to the ground.

Chris Woakes could be rested for England's second Test against India
- November 20, 2016

In Test cricket if you don't take your chances then the game is very hard to pull back. Virat Kohli (49 not out) has posted his second highest Test score vs England in 10 Tests next only to the 103 at Nagpur in December 2012. Rather than that I was just focusing on one ball at a time and trying to take my mind off the situation. Mishra, who was picked as the third spinner in the side, was unimpressive, especially in the first innings, conceding over four runs per over as the visitors ... (more...)

Australia have only ever lost once there, to New Zealand in 2011, but it is a ground where the team who has batted first has won eight of 12 Test matches , so the toss could be important. "We didn't see Steve Smith get runs and he's due". "I'm not really sure that's the way we're thinking". Australia relived their Trent Bridge nightmare in woeful fashion on Saturday, falling victim to an inspired Vernon Philander to produce the nation's lowest Test total at home since 1984. (more...)

- November 17, 2016

It seems likely that Sterling Moore will start on the other side in the base defense. They've racked up 15 sacks in the three games since, including eight against Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer. The Saints endured an even more freaky conclusion as they had a field goal attempt that would surely kill off Denver blocked and then returned nearly the length of the field for a two-point conversion and a 25-23 final scoreline.

India win toss, bat in 2nd England Test
- November 17, 2016

In the same match, Jayant had made his ODI debut and today the Haryana offspinner was handed India's 286th Test cap by former India captain Ravi Shastri. Kohli and Pujara tried to unsettle the youngster and looked to be positive against him with the latter especially using his feet to good effect. There were a couple of hairy moments in the running between wickets - Kohli is about twice as quick as Pujara, so that is no surprise - but apart from that, none of the England bowlers really ...
