Premier League: Newcastle into top four after win at Tottenham, Leeds stumble against Fulham

Newcastle United produced their biggest result of an already impressive season with a deserved 2-1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur to move into the Premier League’s top four on Sunday. First-half goals by Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron — both aided by mistakes from Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris — put Newcastle in control after Tottenham had started brightly. Wilson chipped the opener into an unguarded net after 31 minutes and Almiron scored from a tight angle in the 40th. Harry Kane’s 10th league goal of the season early in the second half suggested third-placed Tottenham could mount a comeback but they huffed and puffed without much quality as Newcastle held firm to claim the three points. Newcastle’s fans celebrated noisily as Eddie Howe’s side, who have lost only once in their opening ...

Kohli and Hardik took the game away from us, says Babar

Babar Azam had a forgettable outing at the park. Dismissed for a blob by Arshdeep Singh, the Pakistan skipper then watched Virat Kohli effect a remarkable turnaround in scripting a fruitful chase in a key ICC Twenty20 World Cup game here at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Sourav Ganguly backs out, elder brother Snehasish set to lead CAB

Former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Sunday pulled out of the race to become the Cricket Association of Bengal’s next chief, paving the way for his elder brother Snehasish to be elected uncontested at its upcoming AGM on October 31. “I had said that I would contest only if there’s election. There’s not going to be any election, so it will be uncontested,” Ganguly told reporters at Eden Gardens after he chose not to file his papers for the president’s post on the last date of nomination. Denied a second term at the Indian cricket board, the former BCCI president only a week back had announced that he’s all set to contest elections to return as the CAB chief. “Had I been there, it would have meant two or more people would not get any posts.
