India wary of rejuvenated Pakistan: Kohli

Despite the enormity of the occasion, and the fanfare around it, the two teams tried to play it down, Kohli in particular. The match between the two Asian neighbours will start at 15.00 IST.

It's been a learning experience to bowl on English wickets, says Bumrah

And I believed the same thing over here in this tournament and the last one, but that's what I believe. Right through the tournament, we didn't play our best cricket, so we don't deserve to be in the semifinal. The pacer has been India's go-to bowler in the tournament and has been a revelation of sorts in the past twelve months. "See, I don't know the figures". Read More »

Thomas shoots 63, trails Harman by 1 at US Open

He's never done better than tied for 26th at any major and has never made the cut at the U.S. Open.

McIlroy is back to even-par for the round after bogeying the first three holes on the front nine. However, after dropping another shot on the 15th, Casey regained his composure superbly to birdie the 17th and 18th, the latter being the second longest hole in ... Read More »

Harman takes US Open lead after day three

Brooks Koepka started on No. 10 and made four birdies on his front nine to get to 9 under, moving into a tie with Fowler for the top spot.

They added 136 runs till the 25th over before Dhawan got out off a Shadab Khan full-toss. When the match resumed, Pakistan were set a daunting 289 run target from 41 overs.
