Kimi Raikkonen to start from pole at Monaco GP

Vettel's joy appeared not to be shared by Raikkonen who remained evasive in interviews after the race and, under specific questions, conceded that it was not his idea to be the first to pit when he was leading.

Mumbai Indians enters IPL 2017 Finals thrashing Kolkata Knight Riders

Still, it did seem at one point that they had a shot. "We discussed that this is not a wicket to get 160-170 it's more of a 140 wicket". The penultimate game of the Indian Premier League had fans excited. We had to be up for it. But Williamson (24) brought a stand of 50 for the second wicket to a tame end by slapping Coulter-Nile straight to extra-cover and Piyush Chawla struck a huge blow by removing Warner's middle stump only two balls later.
