1. England chasing 257 against India to win third ODI and series – live!20:21[−]

25th over: England 152-2 (Root 54, Morgan 35) Root, spotting Kuldeep’s length early again, takes a big confident stride and cover-drives for four to bring up yet another fifty, his 41st in 116 ODIs (including the 12 hundreds). Morgan, not to be outdone, whacks a straight four with a shot that’s straight off the hockey field, all eye and wrist and self-belief.

24th over: England 143-2 (Root 49, Morgan 31) Kohli, in desperation, goes back to seam in the form of Thakur. He concedes a few singles and when he tries a bouncer, it’s given as a wide, which rather sums up India’s day. They need to manufacture a wicket, by hook or by crook: then they’re down to Ben Stokes, who is well out of form.

Greg Van Avermaet extended his lead in the yellow jersey with a superb ride as Julian Alaphilippe won stage 10 of the Tour de France.

Van Avermaet was expected to surrender the race lead he has held since the stage three team time trial as the race moved into the Alps, but the Olympic champion defied predictions as he joined a breakaway and stayed away on the road to Le Grand-Bornand.

3. The Fiver | Yep, this is the comedown17:54[−]

Sign up now! Sign up now! Sign up now? Sign up now!

With Ethics 2018 consigned to history, it’s time for silly season to begin. And not a moment too soon! Forget about Kylian Mbapp?, Luka Modric, Eden Hazard and Harry Maguire’s forehead. Forget about the endless VAR debates, Gareth Southgate’s affability, Neymar’s diving, Harry Kane’s Golden Boot, Japan’s tidiness, Aliou Ciss?’s fist pump and Nikola Kalinic having the same level of impact on Croatia’s run to the final as The Fiver because nobody cares any more. It’s old news. It’s time to move on and accept that the next four weeks are all about preposterous transfer sagas, Jim White gearing up for an early deadline day and The Fiver trying to eke out 300 flamin’ words on the Central Coast Mariners handing a trial to Usain Bolt before nipping outside to get heatstroke.

4. Tiger Woods believes The Open is his best chance to end major drought17:16[−]
• His 14th and last major title came at the US Open in 2008
• Woods believes older players have better chance on a links

Tiger Woods believes the Open Championship provides his best opportunity to claim a 15th major. A decade has passed since Woods last won any of golf’s marquee events – in that instance, the US Open – with subsequent struggles largely linked to injury.

Speaking at Carnoustie on Tuesday, ahead of his 20th Open appearance, Woods initially smiled when asked whether this tournament offers his biggest major chance. “Not to be smart, but it is the next major I’m playing,” said the 42-year-old, before taking matters more seriously.

6. Women’s Super League kicks off … before all six teams are kicked out | Tanya Aldred16:44[−]

With eight new teams set to step in, grounds like Bristol may soon be stripped of top-class women’s T20 action

It was about this time last year that there was a seismic shift in cricket in this country. A shake, a transference in space and time, felt from St John’s Wood to Sprotbrough, as Lord’s filled its great arena with girls young and old, and watched England lift the Women’s World Cup trophy a scintillating final against India.

A year on and England’s showcase women’s domestic tournament, the T20 Kia Super League, prepares to launch into its third season on Sunday.

Henrik Stenson is entitled to ask what he has done wrong. Since producing an epic final round to seal the 2016 Open Championship, misfortune has followed the Swede at golf’s oldest major.

Twelve months ago, Stenson’s Open rental home was burgled as he played his first round at Royal Birkdale. He has arrived at Carnoustie with an existing problem, namely a left elbow injury which forced Stenson to withdraw from last week’s Scottish Open.

The Giro Rosa champion Annemiek van Vleuten overcame her fatigue from winning the Italian stage race last weekend to win the fifth edition of La Course, the women’s race organised by the Tour de France, in Le Grand-Bornand.

In what was the most exciting edition of La Course to date, the Dutch rider chased down Olympic champion and compatriot Anna van der Breggen, on the 14km descent of the Col de la Colombi?re and stole past her in the final 100m to take her second win in La Course.

9. County cricket talking points: old heads lead Yorkshire in T20 Blast14:51[−]

Gary Ballance, Tim Bresnan and Steve Patterson combined to give Worcestershire their first defeat in the competition

By Gary Naylor for the 99.94 Cricket Blog

Worcestershire stay top of the North Group in the T20 Blast having won one and lost one last week, the defeat coming against Yorkshire, who share second place on points with Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. After Gary Ballance had hit four sixes (not so long ago, he was struggling to get the ball off the pitch, never mind the square), the leaders, after four wins on the bounce, must have fancied their chances of making 180. But even a depleted Yorkshire XI has the services of Tim Bresnan and Steve Patterson, who can call upon the nous acquired over 211 T20 matches, which they used to good effect in taking six Worcestershire wickets between them. If young batsmen making their marks has been a theme of the county season so far, cool heads allied to slow heart rates is still the best combination with the ball.

10. Trump’s Turnberry trip shows golf to be most presidential thing about him | Andy Bull14:50[−]
The US president’s love of the game keeps up the rich relationship between the Oval Office and 18 holes of escapism

Once Chequers was done with, and Windsor out of the way, Donald Trump turned to the more pressing presidential business of addressing a golf ball. Trump spent last weekend at his resort in Turnberry, “for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf”. According to a source quoted on Politico, this section of the trip was arranged to entice the president into attending the Nato summit in Brussels “like a dessert he earned after eating his vegetables”. Trump had not been to Turnberry since he became president, and was eager to get back. According to the Trump Golf Count website, Sunday’s outing was his 121st visit to a golf club since he took office.

While Paul Pogba was adding a second star to France’s shirt, Martial was back in Manchester, sitting on his sofa, twiddling his thumbs and occasionally chucking darts at a picture of a smirking Jos? Mourinho. Thanks for nothing, Jos?! Summer ruined. Even Olivier Giroud got to go to Russia.

17. Why Brittany Lincicome believes playing on the PGA is more than a gimmick12:00[−]

The American is up against male golfers at the Barbasol Championship this week, and she hopes she can inspire more girls to take up the game

Brittany Lincicome just wants to be happy. In order to achieve her goal, the two-time major champion tries to live a normal life, and her Instagram give you a glimpse of that philosophy. There’s the the occasional golf post, but it’s mostly filled with pictures of her husband, friends from the tour, videos of her hedgehog, and the occasional photo of her perfect manicure.

It’s her love of the quiet life that means Lincicome doesn’t try to bring unwanted attention to herself. So when she was invited to play on a sponsor’s exemption at the PGA Barbasol Championship this week, she was reluctant. “I actually called my agent, my husband, and dad to get their input,” she said.

The manager has recruited an experienced defence, mainly from Liverpool, with some exciting young talent further forward for their first season in the women’s Championship

The new Manchester United manager, Casey Stoney, last week unveiled the 21 players she has assembled to lead the women’s team into their maiden season in the women’s Championship. Big-name players have been expected by fans since the founding of the team was announced. Yet while Stoney has brought in the experienced England internationals Siobhan Chamberlain and Alex Greenwood, the bulk of the squad – which has an average age of 21 – are young players with huge potential.

19. Rejuvenated Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic looks to New York | Kevin Mitchell00:30[−]

The Serb has been happier with the state of his game – and his mind – since reuniting with his former coach Marian Vajda

If anyone doubted that elite tennis players – like champions in any sport – reside on a different planet, they had only to follow the weird plotline that accompanied the progress of Novak Djokovic on the way to his 13th grand slam title and fourth at Wimbledon.

Surviving a fortnight that intimidated Andy Murray to the point of withdrawal before a ball was struck and was too much near the end for the Serb’s other old rivals, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, has reinvigorated his troubled soul to the point where he might well be favourite in the final major of the summer, at Flushing Meadows in late August.

26. From doubted to dominator: Paul Pogba’s World Cup evolutionПн., 16 июля[−]
The France midfielder went into the tournament with concerns about his role; he ended it dabbing as the heart of the team

If ever there was a time for Paul Pogba to dab and dance, to snapchat and sing to his heart’s content without giving a soul with any sense the opportunity even to tut, this was it. With Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium his stage, he dabbed with president Macron. He dabbed with his mother and brothers on the pitch. He dabbed with an iconic 36.8cm piece of sculpted gold that means everything in football. A world champion, a scorer of a goal that felt result-defining in the final, a fulcrum for his team, a massive personality revered back home, the only thing missing was a hairdresser on hand to create a World Cup-shaped cut to mark this most glorious of moments.

With Pogba in his exuberant element – the master of social media filming non-stop in the dressing room, on the bus, encouraging all sorts of celebratory flourishes with his band of World Cup-winning brothers – he felt so central to everything about this French generation. During the course of this tournament his status within the group changed, and even for his own teammates it was difficult to articulate exactly what it was and how it happened. But everyone could feel it. “I can tell you that Paul Pogba, I don’t know how and I don’t know from where, has become a leader,” announced Adil Rami. “He proved it to us. He showed it. He’s the one that showed the way. He was the strong man of the France team.”

27. Four weeks of endless drama in Russia has re-energised World Cup | Barney RonayПн., 16 июля[−]

After a tournament that was gripping from start to finish with thrilling matches, marvellous midfielders, the rebirth of England and VAR controversy, Qatar has a lot to live up to

Thank you Russia, and goodbye! It’s been fun. Not to mention epic, thrilling, dazzlingly well-organised, and with a constantly shifting sense of place from the strangulating heat of Samara, to the fly-marshes of Volgograd, to the mist and drizzle of the north.

But that is now a wrap. After four and a half weeks and 64 matches, 1,613 shots, 1,734 fouls and a shared continental-scale avalanche of herring, beetroot, dumplings, vodka and sustained on-field drama, the World Cup can now be packed away for the next four years.

28. Ronaldo ready for 'brand new challenge' after Juventus unveiling – as it happenedПн., 16 июля[−]

Portuguese star says €100m move to Serie A club was the only offer he received and that moving to Turin was ‘an easy decison’

Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted he remains as ambitious as ever after completing his move to Juventus from Real Madrid. The 33-year-old was unveiled by the Serie A club on Monday evening after passing a medical earlier in the day.
“The nine years at Real Madrid were wonderful, but it’s a brand new step in my life, so I thank all the supporters with my heart,” Ronaldo said at a press conference. “But I have to focus on this next step. I’m looking forward to playing. I’m very motivated, concentrated and focused on that.”

“I’m going to try to show that I am a top player, as usual. I’m going to work hard in training ... I am very ambitious and I like challenges. I don’t like to stay in my comfort zone. After the experiences in Manchester and in Madrid, I’d like to mark the history of Juventus.”

Here’s one of the key quotes again, a little tidied up.

I’m here because it’s a brand new challenge for my career. It’s a big club and usually players of my age go to Qatar or to China, with all due respect, so coming to such an important and outstanding club at this point in my career makes me very happy. That’s why I’m very grateful to Juventus for this opportunity because I can go on with my career.

It seemed fitting that victory here was never really in doubt. This despite the attentions of a manically committed Croatia who seemed to be charging after something that just kept moving away, engine purring, geared to a higher rate of frequency.

41. Angelique Kerber ready to be on top of the world again after Wimbledon win | Simon CambersВс., 15 июля[−]
The 30-year-old has learned from her past experience of being No 1 and will be better equipped to cope should it happen again

The path to glory is rarely smooth. Angelique Kerber’s victory against Serena Williams on Saturday gave her a third grand slam title, two years after an eight?month period in which she won the Australian Open and US Open and became the world No 1. As the enormity of being a Wimbledon champion began to sink in, the German said it was the experience of 2017, when she lost her way and fell out of the top 20, that laid the bedrock of her return to the top.

“The last two years gives me so much experience, good and bad things,” said Kerber, who allowed herself a brief sip of champagne a couple of hours after her 6-3, 6-3 win against Williams, whose own achievement in reaching the final, 10 months after a traumatic childbirth, was truly remarkable.

Whether it is Serena Williams who completes her fairytale comeback in the Wimbledon ladies final on Saturday or Angelique Kerber who spoils the American’s happy ending, the ladies singles’ champion in 2018 will walk away with the same ?2.25m cheque as their male counterpart.

Serena was one of the leading campaigners when Wimbledon became the last grand slam to offer equal prize money in 2007. But, more than a decade later, the picture outside of the majors shows that across the calendar year, the gender pay gap is still a chasm.

43. The roads to Moscow – a World Cup photo essayПт., 13 июля[−]

Russian photographer Evgeny Feldman has spent the last five weeks documenting his homeland as people have visited from all over the globe for the World Cup. As well as photographing the daily life of towns and cities during the tournament, he was also at the stadiums to capture the key moments and stars of the World Cup such as Kylian Mbapp?, Luka Modric and Harry Kane

It seems a long, long time ago when Yuri Gazinskiy jumped to head home the first of five Russia goals against Saudi Arabia, in the World Cup’s opening match. The excitement and sense of possibility of the early stages transitioned to the nail-biting drama of the early knockout rounds, as the tournament tapered inevitably towards its final conclusion.

45. World Cup finals, The Open at Carnoustie and middle-distance melees | Classic YouTubeЧт., 12 июля[−]

This week’s roundup also includes Wimbledon classics, competitive tags and the luckiest golf shots ever

1) It’s France v Croatia in Sunday’s World Cup final, so let’s take a look back at previous editions – starting with the most disappointing final of all. Brazil v Italy, at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in 1994. Maybe fast forward to the end. Italia 90’s showcase wasn’t much better. Much, much better came four years earlier in the Azteca Stadium; Diego Maradona’s pass for Jorge Burruchaga’s Argentina winner is sublime. Perhaps the greatest team performance in a final came in that same stadium in 1970 – Brazil, Pel?, Rivellino, Jairzinho, Gerson, Clodoaldo and, for the coup de grace, Carlos Alberto. The biggest shock came when West Germany beat Hungary in 1954, the “Miracle of Bern”. The most ultra-violent? Try 2006 and Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt.

2) The weekend will also see the men’s and women’s finals at Wimbledon. Difficult not to start our look back anywhere else but Borg v McEnroe in 1980. From the same era, Navratilova v Evert was the great rivalry in the women’s singles. A forgotten men’s final? How about Richard Krajicek vs MaliVai Washington from 1996? And if you have a spare six hours, you can watch the Federer v Nadal epic from 2008 in full. Goran Ivanisevic’s win over Pat Rafter in 2001 was pretty decent, too. One year later, Serena Williams beat Venus for her first singles title at SW19. One from the deep archive here: Maria Bueno, who died last month, wins the 1959 title.

46. The England team taking on the world in another sporting final | Tanya AldredСр., 11 июля[−]
England’s physical disability cricketers face Pakistan in their tri-series final on Wednesday with one-handed power-hitting to the fore

Perhaps you take some World Cup with your breakfast. Or maybe you prefer some late-night Wimbledon or a soup?on of Tour de France. A side of grand prix, or a shaving of Australian men’s cricket, some New Zealand women’s cricket or a Virat Kohli surprise? What – you’re feeling a bit full? A digestif? No problem – Ronaldo’s late-career move. Ah, something less chewy, more low key and played purely for love – I’ve got just the thing.

Forget Wednesday night and, perhaps, Sunday, and maybe there is an England side playing in an international final this very day.

47. What is the longest-range assist in World Cup history? | The KnowledgeСр., 11 июля[−]

Plus: the lowest-ranked English-based player in Russia, busting an Italia 90 myth and the history of three lions on a shirt. Mail us here or tweet @TheKnowledge_GU

“Was the pass for South Korea’s second goal against Germany the longest assist in World Cup history?” asked Michael McCourt.

Our thoughts at first drifted to Frank de Boer, who pinged a beautiful pass all of 60 yards to Dennis Bergkamp against Argentina at France 98. And we all know what happened next. But having looked at footage of Ju Se-jong’s pass for Son Heung-min’s goal against Germany we measure it at around 75 yards by the time the ball is touched into the net at the six-yard box. You may think there couldn’t be a longer assist than this but there is, and we can’t imagine any other World Cup assist can beat it.

48. Basketbrawls, lone England fan in a Colombia bar and baseball tantrums | Classic YouTubeЧт., 05 июля[−]

This week’s roundup also includes classic Tour de France clips, a Joe Cole wonder-strike and a crying Son Heung-min

1) Australia and the Philippines traded haymakers and flying kicks in a Fiba World Cup qualifier in Bulocan. Maybe it’s something about the claustrophobic nature of the court but basketball has had its fair share of blockbuster brawls down the years. The nadir was 2004’s Malice at the Palace as a fight between Detroit’s Ben Wallace and Ron Artest – later to be known as Metta World Peace – spilled into the stands. Celtics favourite Kevin McHale executed this clothesline on LA Lakers’ Kurt Rambis while Larry Bird’s legendary lip led to Julius Erving delivering this flurry of jabs firmly on his mush. If you like your brawls with a bit more innocence, here’s a top 10 compilation from college basketball.

2) Fifa has a pretty tight hold of all World Cup footage on the pitch, but sometimes the drama off it is just as good. This lone England fan bursting into a bar full of Colombians after the penalty shoot-out win takes some beating, but it’s fair to say this this Uruguayan fan was also quite excited about beating Portugal. Technology was certainly required for Russian cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev to watch their win over Spain from space while Croatians got their flares out in Zagreb after defeating Denmark.

49. England's dry spell puts the heat on cricket groundskeepers | Tanya AldredВт., 03 июля[−]

India start their English campaign with a T20 match in Manchester early on Tuesday evening, but it isn’t the Manchester that they are used to

India probably thought they were flying to the UK for a back-to-back five-Test tour to be played largely on green seamers. India were probably right. However, the summer of 2018 has so far thrown a curveball.

India start their English campaign with a T20 match in Manchester early on Tuesday evening, but it isn’t the Manchester that they are used to. There has been no substantial rain here for weeks, tomatoes limp on in garden dust bowls, water butts are empty and a smell of burning drifts across the city from the fires on the hills at Saddleworth and Bolton, releasing, possibly, pollution stored in the peatlands since the industrial revolution.
