Kiwis pull nervy win over Aussies

In a breathtaking show, New Zealand pulled a jittery one-wicket win over four times champion Australia in a low scoring match of World Cup 2015 at Auckland today.

On way to making an unbeaten 161, Tillakaratne Dilshan overtook Aravinda de Silva as Sri Lanka's highest individual scorer in a World Cup match. De Silva hit 145 against Kenya in the 1996 World Cup which the in-form Dilshan erased from the record books yesterday in style, but the right-hander said he did...

Best possible start for Tigers

Bangladesh couldn't have asked for a better start to the World Cup, could they? The proverbial monkey out of their back in the very first game and the ominous prospect of facing Australia at the Gabba washed out by Cyclone Marcia, the Tigers now sit in third position in Pool A, ahead of Sri Lanka, England, Afghanistan and Scotland. And they will stay there till the morning of February 26, regardless of what happens in the other games in...

'More than shambolic'

'More than shambolic'

Pakistan legend Javed Miandad was lost of words to describe the country's 150-run capitulation to West Indies in a World Cup match in Christchurch on Saturday. "Shambolic is a mild word to describe Pakistan's 150-run defeat against the West Indies. It really hurts to see the planning of Pakistan's think-tank in the ICC Cricket...

No play, so no pay!

As soon as the match was abandoned yesterday afternoon, Bangladeshi journalists gathered their belongings from the press box and rushed towards the field at the Brisbane Cricket Ground, the Gabba, hoping to catch a quote or two from the players. On days such as this, when there is no match to write about, the players' reaction becomes 'gold'. And while most of us were busy getting prepared, the Australian journalists seemed least bothered with regards to a possible post-match interaction....

Breakfast tables at the Sofitel hotel showed Brisbane's day yesterday. Dashing opener David Warner looked to have all the time in the world to have his breakfast.
