Steve Smith smashes more records with 20th Test ton

First he dismissed David Warner to end a rapid century stand with Smith, then he got one to drift away before spinning in to have Peter Handscomb bowled and followed that up with a ideal wrong 'un to send back Glenn Maxwell. Bhuvneshwar Kumar , replacing fellow paceman Ishant Sharma, swung the first ball of the match to induce an edge from Warner but Karun Nair spilled it at third slip. Read More

Hamilton and Vettel disagree about favourite tag

Hamilton said he was still anxious about the threat posed by Ferrari, who improved considerably in the second session. "It's still very early days yet and we have still only one (Spanish) circuit for testing and quite winter conditions". Hamilton's times were five seconds quicker than in 2016. What about Red Bull?

Ricciardo: Verstappen is the best driver in F1

Having not yet set a time in Q3, Ricciardo will start the first round of the 2017 F1 season from tenth position, a result he was disappointed with largely because he couldn't explain why he lost control. It's all positive support and it's quite overwhelming actually; I'm surprised by how many people are getting behind me, it's really cool. I hear ticket sales are up quite a bit from a year ago as well. Read More

F1 racer Daniel Ricciardo seeks end to 37-year Aussie drought

Smith ton helps Australia to 300 after Kuldeep shines on debut

With Matthew Renshaw falling for just one run, Smith found himself at the crease sooner than he would've liked but didn't pass up the opportunity to add more runs in the sub-continent. However, the tempo that he had set in the first phase was lost as he ran out of partners in the second session. He had to curb his strokeplay once Warner was out and then another senior Shaun Marsh (4) got one into his rib cage from Umesh only to offer an easy leg-side catch to Wriddhiman Saha. Read More
