India’s victory at Lord’s sends a message to Australia

22 Jul 2014

“Beware Australia, we can roar overseas too”, is the message from MS Dhoni’s men to Australia after India’s well-earned, 95-run victory over England in the Lord’s Test yesterday. The men roaring the loudest were India’s tall opening bowler Ishant Sharma and left-hand spinning all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. What a final day to remember for India. Usually […]

Murray’s epic recalls previous tennis marathons

Murray's epic recalls previous tennis marathons

3 Jun 2014

When Britain’s Andy Murray took two days this weekend to beat Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 12-10 at the French Open, I was reminded of the tennis marathon of the century. American John Isner took three days to defeat French qualifier Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010. The result was 6-4, 3-6, 6-7, […]

Sobers’ six sixes: A cricketing mystery or a conspiracy?

Sobers' six sixes: A cricketing mystery or a conspiracy?

14 May 2014

Thanks to Twenty20 cricket, sixes are dime a dozen these days. But in the past, sixes were rare and had a special appeal – comparable to sex appeal. Well, almost! First-class cricket was played for 153 years before the great West Indian Garry Sobers, playing for Nottinghamshire, hit Glamorgan’s Malcolm Nash over the fence six […]
