Former England cricketer Graeme Swann, 39, who was a part of the 2009 Ashes-winning side, has revealed that he has lost oodles of weight after joining British dance reality show — Strictly Come Dancing. After training and performing with partner Oti Mabuse, Swann said he has lost two-and-a-half-stone (around 16 kg) across the last two months. When the show's host Zoe Ball asked him about the weight loss, Swann joked that his aerobics themed Salsa was the reason for it, besides the treadmills. Meanwhile, Swann, who has three kids — Wilfred, seven, Charlotte, six, and Jessica, two, with Sarah — said that he's struggling to be a part of the show: "We have three very young kids.

IND vs AUS: Happy to play without altercations, says Virat Kohli

11 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
If the Australians are thinking of engaging Virat Kohli in verbal volleys to fluster the Indian skipper's focus during the much-anticipated four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy series next month, their attempts may end up being futile. For, Kohli made it clear yesterday that any sort of provocation will not have an effect on him. Kohli came under fire after showing his middle finger to the crowd that had annoyed him during the 2012 Sydney Test. He nearly got slapped a ban for his gesture. Kohli, who was skipper during the last Australia tour in 2014-15 after MS Dhoni's abrupt retirement, smashed four centuries and a half century in the Test series despite the Aussies getting under his skin quite often. His verbal duel with the now-retired Mitchell Johnson and being labelled a "spoilt brat" worked in his favour as he smashed 692 runs in eight innings. "On a personal level, I don't need to go and find these things [altercations or arguments] anymore. I can play without pumping myself up," ..

Disgraced Australian stars Steve Smith and David Warner will make a comeback in next year's Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament, their franchises announced Thursday. Both Smith and Warner were barred from participating in the lucrative league this season after their involvement in a ball tampering scandal. Rajasthan Royals named Smith in their squad and Warner stayed with Sunrisers Hyderabad as the 12th IPL officially kicked off with the announcement of player retention from all franchises. The duo are serving one-year international bans but recently padded up for club cricket in Australia. Warner, who had led Sunrisers to victory in IPL 2016 edition, and Smith, captain of Royals, were suspended just ahead of the 2018 edition by the league's governing council. Royals and Sunrisers have not named their captains for the upcoming season. Apart from Smith, Royals also retained their England stars in Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and New Zealand's Ish Sodhi. Overseas stars ..

Sam Curran, Jos Buttler rescue England vs Sri Lanka

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Sri Lanka's spinners claimed some big-name England wickets on the first day of the second Test on Wednesday before Jos Buttler and Sam Curran rescued the innings. Buttler's 63 and a crucial 64 from Curran at the end lifted England to 285 all out after they had been struggling on 89-4 on the turning Pallekelle stadium pitch. Curran, fast becoming an England hero, said reaching near 300 was a "massive" achievement. England spinner Jack Leach then strengthened England's position, dismissing opener Kaushal Silva in the 12 overs Sri Lanka faced as the home side reached 26 for one at the close. A day that saw Ben Stokes, batting at the key number three position, become the latest to fail also reinforced Buttler and Curran's standing lower down the order. England were in trouble against spinners Dilruwan Perera who took four wickets, Malinda Pushpakumara (three) and Akila Dananjaya (two) when Buttler came in to counter-attack with five boundaries and a crucial 45-run stand with Adil Rashid ..

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
The Indian pace attack has been a revelation this year during overseas tours but tougher conditions in Australia will make it a very challenging series for the fast bowlers, reckons former speedster Ashish Nehra. Nehra, who was a part of the Indian squad that drew 1-1 during the 2003-04 series in Australia, felt the current attack "has the ability" to succeed but conditions will be different than what they got in England and South Africa. "The Australian team are going through a massive restructuring and this is India's best chance without doubt. We have the bowling attack to beat them. But we need to be mindful that conditions will be much tougher Down Under where the wickets will be flat and weather would be on warmer side," Nehra said. "In Australia, you will get extra bounce but there will only be lateral movement till the Kookaburra seam doesn't flatten. It won't be like England where the ball swings all day. Once you get adjusted to the bounce, batsmen can hit you all day," sa..

He further asserted that moving the Group A match to Antigua might not help either as rain forecast at the venue would impact their ability to prepare the playing surfaces for any relocated fixtures. 'Our absolute priority is to do everything we can to play cricket and as such in light of the forecast in Saint Lucia, we explored alternative options for group A games.
