Brilliant Kohli steers India to victory over Pakistan

Rohit Sharma (91) and Shikhar Dhawan (68) laid the platform with an opening stand of 136. Yuvraj Singh (53 from 32 balls) added 93 in 56 balls with Kohli for the third wicket as the pair gave the innings an injection of boundaries. The sight of the excellent Amir limping off halfway through his ninth over, and then the altogether less excellent Wahab Riaz - now averaging 51.52 since that wonderful spell to Australia in the last World Cup - spraining his ankle two overs later, and also ...

Cavaliers want to ramp up physicality but won't 'dirty up' game

In a mouth-watering match up of two talent-stacked rosters, the Warriors again showed they had the greater firepower, thanks largely to the addition of Kevin Durant since they lost last season's finals series to the Cavaliers .

Officials say Trump may not try to block Comey's testimony

The fired FBI director is expected to speak about his documented interactions with Mr. Trump , in which the president allegedly asked for Comey's loyalty and asked him to drop an investigation into Flynn.

Racial Slur Painted on Gate at LeBron James' LA Home

Except for one thing. Jackson, who tweeted on Thursday morning that James "deserves better" and called on Americans to "stand with him", said he intends to meet with James in person soon. Warriors forward Draymond Green shrugged off any redemption notion, saying the desire to become a dynasty matters more than revenge. "To use that label, and if you go and read the definition of what the word "posse" is, it's not what I've built over my career", James said in November. Read More

Dufner has another 65 and opens big lead at Memorial

Dufner has another 65 and opens big lead at Memorial

The shot that got the most attention was Dufner's 6-iron that he holed on No. 18 for his eagle. I didn't have a lot of history here that was memorable before the Presidents Cup. Spieth had eight birdies, which was tied with Lingmerth, Summerhays, and Rickie Fowler for the most in the first round. Dufner began the warm, sunny day as co-leader with former victor David Lingmerth of Sweden, but after his bogey-free morning round he had stretched his clubhouse lead to six shots over Rickie ...

Thierry Henry reacts to Wenger's new two-year deal

We need to get back to that. "I think that's ludicrous", he said. Happy because I can work where I love to be. The club values his career. He might buy one or two players having, as he's claimed, created a dynamic to win the title finally. "Those are the type of people I pray that we can bring in". Kroenke, who rebuffed a takeover bid from Russian billionaire and minority shareholder Alisher Usmanov last week, hailed Wenger as the best man for the job as he too targeted more silverware.

The 31-year-old is seeking her first Grand Slam title since winning it all in Paris eight years ago.

This will be the third meeting on clay. Kuznetsova was always likely to hit the big winners but they were too few, and errors more plentiful, as Wozniacki grabbed two early breaks in the ...

Warriors' Steve Kerr returns to the bench, will coach Game 2

Curry is up to 22 points for the Warriors, with seven already in the third quarter. James would finish up with 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds and that wasnt even the most impressive line of the night. The Warriors kicked off the first quarter with a made-three from Draymond Green , which I don't think anyone was really expecting, considering Kerr's return. Read More

Cavs vow more aggressive, decisive play against Warriors

Game 1 it was the Cavs with this problem but with two days of film to watch and surely having had the message hammered home , the giveaways were held to a minimum, a total of eight for the first half.
