Rohit Sharma hit an unbeaten 123 and Kohli added 96 not out as India serenely chased 265 to beat Bangladesh . This was a match where we should have scored 330 but ended up scoring 264. Tamim was bowled for 70 attempting a slog sweep at Kedar Jadhav's part-time off-spin.

perth_map

Two championships in succession have put Pittsburgh's tally during the Crosby-Malkin era at three - one more than the team earned in the Lemieux-Jagr era.

Crosby became the sixth multiple victor of the Conn Smythe Trophy since it was first handed out in 1965 and the third to win it in consecutive seasons, joining Philadelphia's Bernie Parent (1974 and 1975) and Pittsburgh's Mario Lemieux ...

Leishman 'feeling good' but eyeing improvement at Erin Hills

Open . Mickelson holds the U.S. Open record with six runner-up finishes, and it's the only major keeping him from the career Grand Slam.

And on each occasion McIlroy missed the cut. Read More »

Then came Outteridge and another crewman. Just as I was crossing, we straightened the turn, which had me sliding down the aft beam.
