Australia won their previous encounter against England in Lord’s by 64 runs.Rain is expected to play a part in the semi-final between Australia and England.England has not beaten Australia in World Cups since 1992. For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: A semi-final loss in 1979. A loss in 1987 final. Heartbreak in 2003 and a loss at the home of cricket in Lord’s. When one looks at England’s World Cup story against Australia, it is the stuff of nightmares. For 27 years, England has been haunted by the Australia bogey. Heading into the semi-final, all these thoughts will play a major factor in determining how Eoin Morgan goes about in a tournament where they were dubbed the favourites. Before the semi-final, Joe Root had said that if England beat Australia and win the final, the atmosphere for cricket would be reminiscent of the atmosphere which was created in the 2005 Ashes when England won the Ashes after 16 years.Ever since the debacle of 2015 when England was routed and humiliated, they have made giant strides in ODI cricket. New England have regularly displayed their aggression and flair against every opposition. Four years of planning, execution and building have all boiled down to this. A semi-final against the old enemy. A win against Australia will put them in a magnificent position to shed their tag of perennial underachievers and come one step closer to the grand title. For the nation that invented the sport, July 11 is one step in the step of World Cup glory and possibly Ashes glory.Team CombinationAustralia is ravaged by injuries with Usman Khawaja ruled out. With Shaun Marsh’s injury, Australia has had to call-up reinforcements. For England, they look more settled and they would be desperate to put up a solid performance as compared to Lord’s. There is plenty of firepower in the batting for both teams, with David Warner in prime form and Aaron Finch also in prime form. Jos Buttler, Joe Root and Ben Stokes will hold the key but the impetus will be given by the opening duo of Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy.IndiaAustralia Probable XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Steven Smith, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan LyonEngland Probable XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark WoodWho will win?England is desperate to break their 27-year jinx against Australia. After losing their league game at Lord’s, the hosts will be desperate to avenge years of pain against their old rivals and hurt them before the Ashes.Weather and PitchLike in Manchester, the weather for Birmingham is also not looking too promising. There are 40 per cent chances of rain and scattered showers are forecast for the day.Stadium and TimingsThe encounter will take place at Edgbaston, Birmingham at 15:00 pm IST local. highlights
DIRIYAH, Saudi Arabia (Reuters) – Britain’s Anthony Joshua beat Andy Ruiz Jr on a unanimous points decision in Saudi Arabia on Sunday to seize back the heavyweight world championship belts he lost to his Mexican-American opponent in a shock upset last June.The ‘Clash on the Dunes’ in Diriyah was for the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles and Joshua dictated the pace from the start with a measured approach that showed he had learned from the mistakes of the past. Going into the 12th and final round, Ruiz needed a knockout to pull off another upset but it never came. The judges scored the fight 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 to the 30-year-old Briton. “It was his night, man,” said Ruiz as his six-month reign came to an end, calling also for a third encounter that Joshua seemed to welcome. “If you heard, we’re going to do it a third,” said the taller and more athletic Briton. California-based Ruiz had stopped the previously undefeated champion in the seventh round at New York’s Madison Square Garden last June. Joshua described that shock defeat, to a flabby-looking opponent drafted in as a late replacement, as no more than a ‘minor setback’ and he was happy to make light of it again in victory. “Man, the first time was so nice, I had to do it twice,” he told the crowd. “I’m used to knocking guys out but last time I realised ‘hang on a minute, I hurt the man and I got caught coming in’. I gave the man his credit. I said to myself I’m going to correct myself and come again.” Another loss in the early hours of Sunday would have sent the 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion’s career into freefall, with some saying already after the last fight that the Briton was finished. He had shown with his preparations, however, that he meant business – stepping into the ring lighter than ever and giving away more than three stones to Ruiz who had weighed in considerably heavier than in their first showdown. “You know the saying ‘Stay hungry, stay humble’,” said Joshua. “I’m humble in defeat and I’m going to remain humble in victory.” Ruiz said he would do it differently next time. “I think I didn’t prepare it how I should have. I gained too much weight but I don’t want to give any excuses. He won, he boxed me around. If we do the third, I’m going to get in the best shape of my life.”
KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) – Kavem Hodge and veteran opener Devon Smith fashioned half-centuries as Windward Islands Volcanoes produced a solid batting display, to keep Jamaica Scorpions in the field for the entire first day of their second round fixture at Sabina Park.Asked to bat here yesterday, Volcanoes finished the day on 314 for five thanks mainly to Hodge who struck 88 and Smith who carved out 72.For the exception of captain Sunil Ambris (7), every Volcanoes batsman managed a start. Twenty-year-old Emmanuel Stewart was unbeaten at the close on 46 and was partnered by Keron Cottoy on 29.Former captain and Test batsman Kirk Edwards had earlier also struck 29 while Desron Maloney chipped in with 26.Seamer Derval Green was once again the hosts’ best bowler with three for 58 as the attack struggled to break down Volcanoes.It was Smith and Maloney who set the tone by posting 43 for the first wicket to deny Jamaica any early success. And even after Maloney fell after hitting five boundaries in a breezy 31-ball knock, Smith and Hodge then put their side in a commanding position courtesy of a 130-run stand.All told, the 38-year-old Smith faced 152 deliveries in nearly three hours at the crease and counted nine fours, completing his 60th first class half-century in his 211th game.The 26-year-old Hodge’s knock, meanwhile, spanned 171 balls in just over 4-½ hours and included 12 fours.When Smith was bowled by pacer Marquino Mindley, Hodge put on a further 44 for the third wicket with Edwards, who punched two fours and a six in an attractive 48-ball knock before falling in the fourth over after tea, flirting with a side ball from Green and going caught behind.Scorpions then enjoyed their best period of the day when Ambris followed 10 balls later, also caught at the wicket off Green as Volcanoes stumbled to 242 for five.However, Stewart quickly dashed the hosts’ hopes of a further breakthrough, pairing with Cottoy to add 72 in an unbroken sixth-wicket partnership.Stewart, who scored a half-century in the last round against Barbados Pride, has so far faced 94 balls in a shade over 1-¾ hours and counted six fours and a six.

The third match of round two of league games of the Ghana Rugby Club Championship (GRCC) for pool A, continued on Saturday, February 21st 2015 at the Accra Rugby pitch in Legon.The first kickoff of the day was between defending champions, Idas sports and Accra Sharks. Coming from behind to win last week’s tough encounter against current log leaders Cosmos Buffaloes, Idas Sports were looking to extend their win to three in a row.Idas had a tough time getting on the score sheet at the commencement of the game but when the full back of the Idas side intercepted a ball in the middle of the pitch intended for the running back of the Accra Sharks side, he made a beautiful run to the try line scoring the first try of the game. From there on, Idas seemed unstoppable as they scored try after try winning the game by 70 points to 0.The coach of the side Abdul Samad was ecstatic about the win, having won three games in a row so far. “As defending champions, all the teams in league are looking to beat us so we can’t afford to slip up,” he said, adding that, ” We have two very tough encounters remaining this season and winning both games assures us the playoffs for the league title”.The second game of the day was between log leaders, Cosmos Buffaloes and third placed side, Dansoman Hurricanes.

They continued scoring try after try once they found the weak spot in the defence of the opposition.

The Manager of Manchester City Manuel Pelegrini said that BiH representative Edin Džeko will get a chance to show how much he is worth, according to Tanjug.Last season, Džeko was a reserve on the team of Robert Manchin, but nevertheless managed to score 15 goals in 43 games.“I spoke with Džeko two weeks ago and he expressed hope to remain in the club and he is a very important player for me. I am convinced that this year he will show how much he is worth’’, said Pelegrino for English media.(Source: Fena)
