The presidential election has seen a face-off between moderate Rouhani and the hardliner, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei-backed Ebrahim Raisi. "It's about 10 or 20 years that people in Iran want to change the condition in Iran", Asheri said. Also, Iranian regime's Tehran Prosecutor General Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi called on media outlets to avoid spreading false information about the elections and not to speculate on the results.
BCCI has announced the 15 member squad for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy. But, there are many changes in the squad that took part in the last edition. The initial deadline to name a Champions Trophy squad was 25 April but India will not face a sanction for not doing so. The seam-bowling allrounder's spot went to Hardik Pandya , while Kedar Jadhav , who made 232 runs in three innings against England, will lend support down the order on his second tour overseas.
Harvey fared better against Miami on April 16, surrendering two runs - one earned - and seven hits in six innings without factoring in the decision. Wilk will now be opposed by right-hander Jose Urena , who will be making his first start of the season.
Mauricio Pochettino insists there is no chance Harry Kane will be allowed to leave Tottenham after his "special" striker's four-goal blitz in the 6-1 rout of Leicester.

It was revealed Estanguet would become president of the Organizing Committee should Paris 2024 win the host city contract over Los Angeles while Lapasset would be named an honorary president of the OCOG.

He expects a tight, fast track at Saturday's 5:48 p.m. (St. Louis time) post time , similar to the one on which Always Dreaming swept to victory in the Florida Derby on April 1. In the Preakness, I believe his jockey - Julien Leparoux, who has won seven Breeders' Cup Races in his career - will stalk Always Dreaming and be right up close after the first quarter mile.
Angel Gomes, 16, and Tim Fosu-Mensah are also set to play and Pogba could well captain the side. "He played 90 minutes in the last match, probably not". "With so many at the same time, I think they really need my support, (reserves manager) Nicky Butt's support (and) supporters to understand the hard job they have, because it will not be an easy one for them".
The Special One conceded he was not introducing them to the first team in ideal circumstances, though, per Rathborn: "I prefer to hand debuts to only one young player at a time ". "I don't think it's good that there is a such a big difference in quality and strength between the kids and Crystal Palace". "David? I think the first match against (American MLS side) LA Galaxy in preseason", he said.
The result: Western Conference: Golden State Warriors 102 bt Utah Jazz 91 ( Warriors lead series 3-0). There are no guarantees in sports, and the Golden State Warriors proved that fact just previous year when they blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
Mourinho however believes his side will attain stability in the next campaign. "[Chris] Smalling has a problem but a small problem that I think no problem at all for next week". "We've all been moaning about the fact we're not getting anywhere near the Champions League or we're not getting anyone winning the Europa League ".
I also believe the muddy track at Churchill Downs helped carry Always Dreaming. Jockey John Velazquez should be able to put Always Dreaming in his preferred early position, first or second. Casse insists the Preakness isn't about revenge, although he likened his horse to Rocky Balboa. Among the most interesting new shooters Always Dreaming will face is Conquest Mo Money .
The BCCI is furious over the ICC's decision last month to amend rules so that less money and power is held by cricket's major powers - England, India and Australia. Four years ago in 2013, an Indian team led by MS Dhoni lifted the Champions Trophy by beating hosts England. "We're extremely pleased with Rishabh and will groom him too", said chief selector MSK Prasad.
Angel Gomes , 16, and Tim Fosu-Mensah are also set to play and Pogba could well captain the side. United could still finish Mourinho's debut season with two trophies, if they beat Ajax in the Europa League final next Wednesday, having already lifted the EFL Cup.
Earlier, world No. 2 Novak Djokovic reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Feliciano Lopez . It almost paralleled his first match at Monte Carlo, against Gilles Simon: take a first set against a unsafe but ultimately much less skilled player, lose the second, and go down a break of serve in the third before coming back to win, aided by some critical gaffes on his opponent's part (Almagro's wild baseline errors, and Simon's poor serving with the match on his racket).

There's an unexpected lack of pressure for Swansea to endure on the final day of the season. If that happens, Burnley and Watford would need a point from their final games to finish above Swansea. The gifted playmaker was a key reason that the Liberty Stadium side managed to stave off Premier League relegation, with the Scandinavian their undoubted attacking talisman.
Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has also hit a purple patch of form, netting 13 goals in his last eight appearances. While comparisons distract from the spectacle of watching two of the greatest ever footballers in action, we couldn't help but see how the two compare in front of goal in recent years.

And this Hindi Medium trailer is very incredible, and it has received all positive reactions. Earlier the makers were planning to release the film on May 12, 2017 but the release date was later changed to May 19, 2017.

Fellow American Jason Kokrak grabbed the 36-hole lead at 12 under after a almost flawless eight-under 62.

Johnson two-putted from 90 feet on the 18th hole to stay a part of his group. Janzen had a run of six birdies and a bogey from holes 10-17 while Sluman and Jimenez closed with birdies on the 526-yard par 5.
Djokovic won the last meeting between the pair in the quarter-finals of the Rome Masters exactly a year ago, and Nadal had not beaten the 12-time grand slam victor since the 2014 French Open final.

They should have taken the lead when Dele Alli played the ball through to Son but with just the keeper to beat, the winger smashed the ball over the bar when he should have scored. "I was hoping to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the next game". While there was little to play for in this last fixture before the final day of this season's Premier League programme, Spurs were well up for it, with Kane opening the scoring on 25 minutes.
The calculations for the range of money that remains available to pocket was undertaken by Talksport and were correct prior to Tuesday evenings fixtures, so with that wriggle room in place, errors are their own. With a superior goal difference of five to that of Arsenal , who are three points behind, it would take a big turnaround to deny City. The league winning goalkeeper has been enormous this season for the Blues and has not been caught out regularly despite reports linking him to ...
He turned provider for Tottenham's fourth goal in the 71st minute by setting up Son to finish coolly past Schmeichel, before grabbing a late double to round off a sensational attacking display.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson would not give details about Harvey's infraction, saying that he was sent home and that his suspension started Saturday.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has no new injury concerns ahead of the game. "In a football club today you have to employ people who can help you be successful". This is because of Liverpool's absence from several European competitions over the last five seasons. "We have 69 points, we can get to 75". Liverpool sit third on 73 points knowing they will guarantee Champions League qualification if they beat Middlesbrough in their only remaining game of the season.
The Celtics did their job by winning those two games at home, but they know the importance of holding onto control of this series, and that will be lost if they do not get a victory in Washington tonight.

Cesc Fabregas was Chelsea's match-winner, inventively creating goals for Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic either side of half-time at a festive Stamford Bridge .

Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 29 points and 12 assist, but the real hero of the game was Kelly Olynyk with 26 points off the bench. Game 1: Wednesday , May 17, 8:30 p.m. "Everybody gave it their best and it turned out for us tonight", added the 26-year-old Canadian power forward. That drought is the longest of any city, with three or more professional sports teams and if the Wizards can break the "curse", they will be the first for an entire Washington generation.
Golovkin - a notable onlooker during the fight against Chavez - stepped into the ring in a scene similar to WWE following Canelo's convincing win as the pair stood toe-to-toe, much to the delight of the crowd.

Arsenal are only in with a shout of the top four thanks to Sanchez, who played through the pain of a thigh injury to see off Sunderland , emphasising how much they need him to sign a new contract.

The Murray-Fleury decision was a "very difficult" one to make, Sullivan said, but "it's a good hard decision to have because we have two guys that are as capable as they are, and both of these guys have helped this team win all year long, and they're both high quality people and they're high quality goaltenders".

Always Dreaming is the 4-5 morning-line favourite with Classic Empire at 3-1. Gunnevera (seventh), 15-1, seems to be tailing off. Term of Art Jose Ortiz 30-1 8. Thirteen winners have started from the No. 4 post, most recently Curlin in 2007. With all that, a wet track, and being pushed well to the outside and running much further than Always Dreaming , Classic Empire , who many railbirds still feel is the class of the class, still managed to finish fourth.
So it's a complicated equation, yet this will be compounded by the fact that one of the key matches - Arsenal v Everton - will not be shown on TV with Sky on being able to show two games. The second United approach came in 96, in the autumn just five weeks after I had stopped drinking and in that period of uncertainty when Arsene Wenger was taking over from the sacked Bruce Rioch.
Kyle Busch , who like Larson is looking for his first all-star win, will start on the outside of Row 1. Will last week's bad optics cost her this time? In the final round, Johnson overshot his pit stall and incurred a five-second penalty when his crew went over the wall too soon.

Somehow, after more than half a period of the Penguins playing a defensive game that some could call boring, the Senators break through and make it a one-goal game.

The hard work paid off and the Capitals had their best performance of the playoffs Monday with a 5-2 win in Game 6 .

The win was Kim's second on the PGA Tour and earned him a five-year exemption on the Tour. Ian Poulter has accepted an invitation from the European Tour to play at the BMW PGA Championship later this month.
