DC vs RCB: Delhi Capitals secure No. 2 spot with six-wicket win, RCB also through to playoffs | Cricket News – Times of India

Two top-of-the-pile teams spiraling so fast that elimination from the tournament seemed a rude possibility, it had to come down to who kept a steady head and stayed afloat. Delhi Capitals did just that. They came out with such a clinical show against Royal Challengers Bangalore that it never looked like they were a team which came into this match having suffered four heavy defeats on the bounce. As DC chased down 153 by six wickets and an over to spare led by clean half-centuries from Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane, suddenly they again looked like a team worthy of finishing second in the table as they moved into the playoffs. RCB, after spending weeks in the top-three, pulled things back just enough at the back end of the chase and ensured they are in the playoffs. It leaves Kolkata ...

Rugby league player turned hotelier Steve Bowden lists $14m Southern Highlands trophy home – realestate.com.au

Wattle Ridge, at 700 Wattle Ridge Road, Bowral, has a $14m price guide. Capitalising on the high demand for Southern Highlands trophy homes is the former rugby league player-turned-hotelier Steve Bowden, who has listed his Wattle Ridge estate for $14m. It was only three years ago that Bowden bought the 258-hectare Hill Top holding in Nattai from publisher Matt Handbury and Clare Strang for $8.25m. But in that time he’s poured money into the property, turning it into a functioning cattle farm. The Sotheby’s International managing director, Michael Pallier, who sold the property to Bowden, has the listing again.
