However, England ended the innings strong after they picked five wickets in the final three overs to restrict India to 144 for eight in the 20 overs. Reeling at 69/3, Rahul was joined at the crease by another youngster - Manish Pandey - and the duo stitched a brilliant partnership to steady the ship for the hosts.
He won a share of $1 million, split between he and his victorious Metropolitan Division teammates. Simmonds will receive a Honda Ridgeline sport utility truck for being selected MVP. You also knew that Connor McDavid would never admit to that. When the current stars were introduced, they skated down the row of former players and fist-bumped each of their elders, creating a tentative bond where one might not have existed before.
Nadal, 30, reaches his first major final since the 2014 French Open after seeing off Dimitrov in an absorbing five sets, sealing a 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 at the Rod Laver Arena. "I was already prepared in the last couple of majors and I have to say". The two legends didn't disappoint, Federer surviving endless ebbs and flows - including a medical time-out for treatment on a leg injury before the deciding set - and then a 2-0 deficit to prevail on his second championship point after ...
Goldberg. Every time Goldberg has been on TV, the TV numbers have gone up and the product buzz has gone up. The WWE will invade the Alamodome in San Antonio on Sunday night for the 30th Royal Rumble. The overall point is WWE doesn't necessarily need to be concerned, but they need to be careful about how they booked Goldberg in the "Royal Rumble" match on Sunday.
According to Trump's ideals, Santa Cruz' family, including his mother and father, would be deported. Cruz, who said he wanted revenge after losing the first time around to Frampton, said he was happy to give Frampton a third fight. Both men seem down for a trilogy matchup, and I don't think there would be too many complaints about that. "I worked hard. Carl Frampton is a great fighter".
And we could even be treated to another instalment of the legendary Federer v Nadal rivalry, if Rafa wins his semi-final. After surviving an epic five-setter against Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the semi-final, a gassed Nadal admitted that playing Federer in a Grand Slam final hasn't crossed his mind in several years.
On that last occasion, at Wimbledon, Venus emerged the victor but overall Serena leads the rivalry with 22 Grand Slam titles to Venus's seven. Starting with the 2002 French Open and ending with the 2003 Australian, the two met in four consecutive Grand Slam Finals with Serena sweeping to earn her " Serena Slam".
It will be the 28th time the two have met as professionals, with Serena holding a 16-11 advantage. Chasing her elusive first Open crown and eighth career major, Williams will face her sister - six-time champion Serena - or Croatian surprise package Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in Saturday night's final.
Live coverage of the game will be on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Jurgen Klopp: "Of course we want to be part of the final but we don't just want that, we want to go there and win it". "In the first leg we should have been further ahead". Jordan Henderson is expected to play despite still feeling discomfort from a heel injury while Nathaniel Clyne is a slight doubt after missing training earlier this week.
Nadal and Raonic held serve until the Canadian was broken in the eighth game, which was all Nadal needed to wrap up the set 6-4. Of the four players in the semis, only Dimitrov is below 30 years. Nadal had to save six set points as Raonic pressed hard in the second set but he was clinical on the big points and broke the Canadian to love to wrap up the match in style.
New England, heading to its ninth Super Bowl, blew out Pittsburgh 36-17. The NFL's championship game will be played on February 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston, with Brady trying to become the first quarterback with five Super Bowl victories while the Falcons will try to win their first championship.
There was plenty of time to celebrate because the Patriots, with help from the Steelers, put this one out of reach relatively early. Chris Hogan played one year of college football. "Have they not been around for the other games?" Hogan's two touchdowns came on blown assignments and trickeration. Pittsburgh had drawn to 10-6 on DeAngelo Williams' 5-yard run to cap an 84-yard drive.
Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, has been at her matches. The number nine seed reached the semi-finals in Melbourne a year ago but acknowledges it'll be a tough ask against 22-time Grand Slam champion Williams, who beat Czech 16th seed Barbora Strycova 7-5, 6-4.
The report goes on to insist that contrary to previous claims, owner Roman Abramovich is willing to sell the club's top goalscorer so far this season, and that Costa isn't settled in London and wanted a return to Atletico Madrid last summer.
Football has become a bit like that as regards managers, so I think it is unlikely that you will last that long, and the ones that do last that long will do so because they have a lot of success. And Burnley appeared on course for just a second away point of the season when Gray converted a late penalty, only for more drama to follow. "I didn't know if I was sent to the stand but I was sent out".
When Bell finds his gap, he puts his foot on the gas. The Patriots may be able to take away Brown, or Bell, or maybe even both, if they're really lucky-at least limit their effectiveness. "Going into New England and winning in the playoffs" has been considered the most daunting task in the National Football League for more than a decade now, and here they are again.
That's nothing new for Jones, but the sprained toe still raised concerns about how effective he'll be in the biggest game of the season. Matt Ryan's frustration could be compounded when the Packers' sixth-rated QB attackers (40 sacks in the regular season) get through an O-line that's allowed Ryan to be dropped 37 times this season (22nd in the league).
And it would seem they've made their feelings clear to Payet, too, after an informed club insider revealed details of the players' Whatsapp group. West Ham are rumoured to be resigned to losing their best player and have slapped a £30 million price tag on his head.
There are many doubting Pep Guardiola, especially in terms of his defensive coaching, but this was always going to be his most hard job and he deserves time to get it right. Spurs were victors when the pair clashed during a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane, with an own goal by Aleksandar Kolarov and a cool finish from Dele Alli confirming the scoreline.
Richard: What a game this promises to be. With Blount as Bell's backup, Pittsburgh possessed one of the better backfield duos in the NFL. One thing you can usually count on is them finishing near the top of the league in turnover differential.
He abruptly stopped. He turned back to the court, pushed his headphones behind his ears and jogged across the floor to the Thunder's bench area. So even though he ranked third behind MVP candidates Harden and Westbrook in the other categories and ended up with the same weighted score as them, he got one spot and Harden the other after earning almost 200,000 more fan votes than his former teammate.
And while Julio Jones is dealing with a foot injury, that's nothing new and it shouldn't be a big factor Sunday. The cornerback corps is still less than 100 percent without Sam Shields and with Quinten Rollins and Damarious Randall both hurting, but it's much healthier now.
Serving for the match at 6-4, 5-1, things changed for Williams. The competition in the 128-player main draw begins on Monday, January 16, in Melbourne. Karolina Pliskova and Johanna Konta both made their Grand Slam breakthroughs previous year, both prepared for the season's first major with title runs in Australia and both advanced with straight sets wins.
This season, Irving averages of 20.3 points and 4.7 assists in 33.6 minutes over his last three games . Curry wanted more time at point guard, and he's gotten it. The rivalrly between the Warriors (34-6) and defending champion Cavaliers (29-10) continues Monday as Golden State tries to snap a four-game losing streak against Cleveland.
That was then. This is now. The Chiefs are 1-8 in the playoffs since that season with the one win coming a year ago on the shoulders of quarterback Alex Smith and the hard-nosed Kansas City defense when they beat the Houston Texans 30-0 in the opening round of the postseason.
Even Rodgers was surprised at the Cowboys late game strategizing. Rodgers went out of his way to praise Prescott and Elliott, saying it was "just the beginning" for the Cowboys and "there's going to be more battles like this over the years".
It is a brand new year and a brand new season for tennis. With her price having nearly halved in the opening two weeks of the season, some will argue the value has already gone but 22/1 still doesn't accurately reflect her chances in my opinion.
It should also be noted that Brady is 22-9 overall in the postseason. Lewis became the first player in National Football League history to score rushing, receiving and kickoff return touchdowns in a playoff game. The fans had reason to expect a blowout, but with the Patriots' lead cut to 14-13, they went quiet. But coach Bill Belichick said the onus is not just on the players, but the coaching staff as well this week as they prepare to host the victor of Sunday's matchup between ...
A long injury layoff and a fall in the rankings have created a tough draw for 17-time Grand Slam victor Roger Federer at the Australian Open. Let's hope the world No.1 will get the title this time. The exhausted story of the modern tour made me think a lot about this match, a quarterfinal from the 2001 U.S. Open between 19-year-old Andy Roddick and 20-year-old Lleyton Hewitt.
Hear the game on 99KG or on KINA 910 AM or 94.5 FM. "I think Mike did the appropriate thing", he said. Actually, the Steelers played. With the healthiest offense in the league now and an improving running game , the Steelers must be the most feared team in the sport now.
