Australia v India: first Test, day five – live!

10-12-2018

Updates from the final day of play in AdelaideAny thoughts? Email or tweet @collinsadam 12.49am GMT 68th over: Australia 150-5 (Marsh 57, Paine 13) Ashwin again to Paine, who is in decent shape against the spin, playing with soft hands to the men around the bat. He takes the chance to get onto the front foot to drive one to cover, Marsh following suit with a single of his own to finish the over and bring up the Australian 150. More applause; more belief. 50 for Shaun Marsh. Could be a career-defining innings if he can ton up and save Australia #AUSvIND 12.47am GMT 67th over: Australia 148-5 (Marsh 56, Paine 12) Now they’re motoring! Paine’s hook off Shami it not perfectly convincing - it is within a foot or so of landing in Pant’s diving glove - but it gets him four all the same. Marsh on the other hand: this is a beautiful clip through midwicket, the shot of the day by some measure. They are 175 away from the victory target of 323. Dare to dream? Adelaide Oval is, I can assure you of that.Shaun Marsh brings up his 50 in style!#AUSvIND | @Domaincomau pic.twitter.com/AbNJxutxZc Continue reading...



‘#weareNOTgymnastics’: parkour fights to retain its soul | Andy Bull

10-12-2018

The International Gymnastics Federation wants to recognise parkour as a new discipline, with a view to Olympic inclusion in 2024. But the parkour community is opposing the FIG’s effortsThe Dame du Lac lives an hour’s ride from Paris, in the suburb of Lisses. She is a 20m tall triangular wall, rutted and pocked with concrete knobs, ledges and gullies. In the late 1980s David Belle and his friends would come here to swing, leap and bound from one of her nooks to the next until they made it all the way to the platform at the top. They were not only playing but training. There was a discipline to it. Because it all grew out of the obstacle course techniques David was taught by his father, Raymond, who had been a soldier and a fireman. They called it “parcours” or “route”.

Jason Roy could add spice to England setup as Ed Smith mulls Test squad

10-12-2018

Selector has not shied away from bold picks and may use West Indies Tests to experiment with the exciting over the pragmaticSince Ed Smith became the chief selector it has been worth keeping an eye on the announcement of England squads. He has delivered a few surprises in his nine months in the job, during which he has never seemed intimidated by the enterprising selection that might attract some flak.Smith’s best call for the Test team was probably his first – he has suggested as much – when he selected Jos Buttler, who had not expected the call because of the long-accepted drawback of him not having encountered a red ball for months. His most controversial was the recall of Adil Rashid, who was in retirement from red-ball cricket at the time. Both decisions provoked plenty of criticism, which has long since evaporated.

Jordan Larmour’s try for champions Leinster is a bad break for Bath

10-12-2018

• Bath 10-17 Leinster• Sam Underhill shines in Bath’s lost causeBath have been flagging of late, one victory in 10 matches before welcoming the Champions Cup holders, which is maybe why they decided to confiscate 1,500 Leinster flags before the match on health and safety grounds. They succeeded in lowering the provinces’s standard, but could not stop it fluttering on a dank afternoon when defences prevailed.The Leinster supporters’ club intended to hand them out to members before kick-off. They would have been useful to shield their eyes after a first half that was a triumph for the conditions. Bath have been typical in recent weeks of the muddling mediocrity in the Premiership below the top two: as the weather has deteriorated, so have skill levels but here they worked to the advantage of Bath who from the outset played the role of underdog despite home advantage.

The Fiver: The only people laughing are watching David Luiz’s defending

10-12-2018

Sign up now! Sign up now! Sign up now? Sign up now!Is it true that the Fiver never gets invited to cool dinners with influential football intellectuals? The Fiver prefers not to comment on idle speculation. The Fiver has lots of friends! Lots of important and influential friends in high places and anyway its invite to Arrigo Sacchi’s meal with Pep Guardiola and Maurizio Sarri earlier this year probably got lost in the post. So stop laughing. The Fiver totally would have applied for a passport in order to fly to Italy for that. Continue reading...
