England’s Reece James to see specialist over knee injury amid World Cup fears

Chelsea right-back Reece James will meet with a specialist over the weekend to determine the extent of his knee injury, manager Graham Potter said on Friday after British media reported the England defender could miss the World Cup in Qatar. James, 22, sustained the injury late in the second half of Tuesday’s 2-0 victory at AC Milan in the Champions League and was withdrawn after receiving medical treatment on the pitch. Potter was unable to provide a timeframe for James’ recovery but any long-term absence would be a blow for England, with Manchester City right back Kyle Walker also a doubt for the Nov. 20-Dec. 18 World Cup after undergoing groin surgery. “Yesterday he felt not too bad, but until you get these things checked you never know,” Potter told reporters before Chelsea’s Premie...

India go down 3-0 to Morocco after goalless first half

After 180 minutes of football, India’s chances of going past the group stage of the U-17 Women’s World Cup are over. The hosts lost 3-0 against Morocco in the battle of debutants on Friday at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. With no points from two games, India cannot mathematically qualify for the knockouts with one more game to go. While their big 8-0 loss to the USA in the opening match was understandable, India have only themselves to blame for the loss to Morocco. Though they fought brilliantly, two mistakes, both in the second half, cost them the game and their chances in the tournament. It was a big moment for Morocco too, who got their first-ever win in a FIFA Women’s World Cup. A goal-laden day in the #U17WWC! ⚽️ pic.twitter.com/6Pmefat3io — FIFA Women’s World Cup (@FIFAWWC...

World at his fingertips at 18, Rudrankksh Patil wins 10m air rifle gold 

Rudrankksh Patil had had enough of travelling to shooting ranges to central and western suburbs of Mumbai, coolly carrying a rifle case on public transport, pretending it to be a guitar. And so, he decided it was time to go back to school; returning to the premises where he’d encountered the sport for the first time as a 13-year-old. It’s an uninspiring building in a dusty, congested and far flung corner of Thane, a city that boasts of its cultural riches and soothing lakes but completely devoid of any sporting scene. It was here, at a dimly-lit shooting range with manual targets in the basement of a school that Patil began his journey that’s catapulted him to the top of the world. On Friday, on his World Championship debut, Patil shot an impressive total of 633.9 in qualification round...

Why six hitters alone can’t win the T20 World Cup trophy

For one night at the Eden Gardens, Carlos Brathwaite was the Hercules of cricket. A metaphor of the blazing power of six. The echoes of his four sixes could be heard far and wide. A month later, the cricketer who once ran a sports shop to keep his cricketing career afloat and hopped to Dublin so that he could at least make some money playing cricket and coaching children, fetched Rs 4.2 crore, 13 fold his base price in the Indian League auction, and had advertising giants queuing up. Other franchises tried to discover or manufacture Brathwaites of their own. Six became the inflation-proof currency of the game and the sultans of six the nouveau riches. The humbler methods of the 2016 edition’s highest run-getter, Virat Kohli, was ridiculed. Singles and twos, threes and fours would never ...

Spain refuses Qatar’s request for riot police at World Cup

Spain will not send riot police to Qatar to help safeguard the upcoming soccer World Cup as had been requested by the Middle Eastern country, the Spanish interior ministry said on Friday. The ministry would not provide any further comment on the decision, and only confirmed an earlier report on Cadena Ser radio, which said Spain had been mulling whether to send around 115 officers to Qatar but ultimately refused. With a population of less than three million – of whom just 380,000 are Qatari nationals – Qatar faces a shortage of personnel as it gears up for the month-long FIFA soccer tournament kicking off on Nov. 20.

T20 World Cup: Suresh Raina bats for Rishabh Pant, says presence of the left-hander with Hardik Pandya could be X-factor for India | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: Former batter Suresh Raina feels the left-handed Rishabh Pant could be the X-factor for India alongside Hardik Pandya in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. With all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja's injury ruling him out of the tournament, Pant, who has an excellent record in Australia, could do what the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Raina once did along with former skipper MS Dhoni. Under Dhoni, India triumphed in the inaugural World T20 in 2007, the 2011 ODI World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy, the last ICC tournament the team has won. "I would say the presence of a left-handed batter would be very important in the middle," Raina said in an exclusive interview with PTI on Friday. He added: "From No. 1-6, we don't have a left-hander and I'm sure the opponents will have two-three left-han...
