Fakhar, Amir sparkle as Pakistan stun India

Mohammad Amir (3-16), who sat out the semi-final win over England with a back spasm, then dismissed Virat Kohli for five as India's top order folded to 54-5. There is no doubt that Pakistan have abundance of talent and if groomed properly they can keep Pakistan's green flag fluttering on the top and bringing pride and honour for a nation fighting out militancy and terrorism.

Sublime Fakhar leads Pakistan to 338-4 in final

But they turned it around in style as they topped South Africa (19 runs via D/L method), and Sri Lanka (three wickets) to enter the semi-finals where they got the better of hosts England by eight wickets. The resultant free-hit did not result in too many runs but the Pakistan openers launched an assault on the Indian bowlers after that. Today's match was a one-sided affair, with Pakistan outperforming India in all three departments. Read More

McGregor fight is finally on

On TV, the match is likely to exceed the record-setting 4.6 million PPV purchases for Mayweather-Pacquiao. The main question surrounding the bout is the rules the fighters would adhere to, with many concerned that Mayweather's vastly superior boxing skills would make a standard boxing match a walkover.

Zach Johnson making an early move at Erin Hills

Open after Friday's second round. The 24-year-old Thomas eagled the par-5 18th for just the fifth 63 in U.S. Open history. "I feel like I'm striking it very well". Overnight leader Rickie Fowler had people watching on the edge of their seats on Friday, but appeared to play far too conservatively. Thomas's pyrotechnics were the main event on a day filled with thrilling shots and wild scoring swings. Read More

Amir fit and plays in Champions Trophy final

Amir fit and plays in Champions Trophy final

India suffered a shock loss to Sri Lanka in the group stage before overwhelming Bangladesh in the semis and their captain Virat Kohli has been impressed by Pakistan's resurgence. The fielding was sloppy, the bowling didn't stick to the game plan, and the batsmen didn't run well between the wickets . India have the best strike rate during this phase, but are second in terms of average , and third in economy rates . Read More

More local players selected on third day of MLB Draft

More local players selected on third day of MLB Draft

The Orioles may not end up drafting any one of these players, either because some other team takes them first or because the Orioles go in a different direction than expected . To no surprise, the Orioles showed interest in Hall's 90-93 miles per hour fastball reaching up to 95 with late arm-side run. Hall has a sound delivery, though his arm slot can wander and detract from his control and command. Read More

Dodgers' Puig makes obscene gesture at Cleveland fans

Dodgers' Puig makes obscene gesture at Cleveland fans

Give the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger a few more weeks, though, and he very well might be close to catching up. The over is 7-3-2 in the Dodgers' last 12 Thursday games, and the under is 11-3-2 in Hill's last 16 starts overall. He has a 5-2 record with a 4.15 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in nine starts. Let's hope that this is the bottom, or else the void is going to get exhausted of the screaming. Read More

Lakers want Lonzo Ball in for second workout

Lakers want Lonzo Ball in for second workout

With that in mind, what would be the best 3-on-3 team you could field with only Kentucky players? His passing is a game changer in transition as well, not only after the offense has set. "Those things. At the end of the day, I'm trying to come in and play my game". Kimmel then turned his attention to the elder Ball, who talked up his training skills, then asked Lonzo if he ever gets annoyed having his father around him all the time, telling him to blink three times if the answer is yes.

Record-breaking Cavaliers turn up the heat on Golden State

He scored 31 points, falling short of his over/under 33.5 points. "We got two on the ball, that means that somebody's open", Durant said. Read More

Klay Thompson: Warriors 'Want to Finish it' in Cleveland

Klay Thompson: Warriors 'Want to Finish it' in Cleveland

Warriors executives have insisted, of course, that they'd rather just win the series as quickly as possible. With 41 seconds left, Durant tripled in front of James for Golden State's go-ahead 114-113 lead. I mean, when we're hitting threes, we're a different team. It wasn't a message Durant wanted to hear. "I didn't envision anything but just being around good people and getting better every single day", Durant said. Read More

Kyrie Irving praises Celtics, Isaiah Thomas following Game 5 victory

The Cavaliers won the best-of-seven series 4-1 and advanced to meet the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals . But if Games 3 and 4 are any indication, it won't be easy. It was particularly interesting to see LeBron's reaction to longtime teammate James Jones throwing down a putback in the fourth quarter, as the 14-year veteran joins James as the only active player to make seven-straight championship appearances.

Dixon impressed by Alonso at Indy

The Spaniard, a two-time Formula One world champion, has garnered a large majority of media and fan attention since his participation was confirmed. Still, this is the first time in years that a driver who mainly competes in Formula One stepped away for the Indy 500, and Alonso's move clearly lifted interest in this year's race , which is expected to draw at least 250,000 spectators to the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway .

Warriors welcome back Steve Kerr with Game 2 win

The 2017 NBA Finals on ABC - the Golden State Warriors lead the Cleveland Cavaliers 2-0 - is the most-watched since 1998, through two games, according to Fast Nationals from Nielsen. "We know that. We have to give them something to cheer for". His closeouts on shooters are making life hard for the likes of J.R. Smith and they've allowed the Warriors to completely nullify the Cavs from deep, who have shot just 31 percent as a team this series. Read More

Curry and Warriors club Cleveland, move halway to the National Basketball Association title

Then LeBron came back with "If we don't defend home court, what happens?" Well, that's sure comforting for the Cavs . Curry's 10 first-quarter free throws equaled Paul Pierce for most in a Finals quarter. Kevin Durant and Steph Curry each had 15 points for the Warriors . In the fourth quarter, Durant had a moment of pure brilliance. "It was 2-0 past year and we lost". Read More

Warriors lead 86-82 in the 3rd quarter

Warriors lead 86-82 in the 3rd quarter

Forget all the things Cleveland did wrong offensively in Game 1 - the poor shooting, the 20 turnovers and how the bench basically contributed nothing. Durant's length, explosiveness and deadly jump shot prowess has proved to be James' kryptonite through one game in the NBA Finals , and with no other big in the roster able to keep in front of him - it could very well prove to be the Cavs' demise if coach Lue can't make the proper adjustments to defend him with better team-based schematics.

LeBron's brilliance not enough in Game 2 loss to Warriors

LeBron's brilliance not enough in Game 2 loss to Warriors

I'm not counting LeBron out yet - after all, his teams have lost Game 1 of the NBA Finals six straight times , and they've come back to win three of the previous five series . Cleveland, however, needs only to look at last year's Finals to realize losing to the Warriors in Game 1 is hardly disastrous. "At times , yeah, there's a lot of noteworthy people that show up, especially this time of year to the finals games", Curry said. Read More
