Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan , like they did so often four years ago, showed their potency as an opening partnership, and while one of them struggled a little to 91 runs - unusual as it might sound when someone scores 91 - for India it was all about building that solid base, so that they could go slam-bang-thank-you-ma'am in the second half of the innings.

The two-time Wimbledon champion lost the first-set 7-6 but that seemed to kick him into gear as he rattled off the next two sets 6-2, taking a 2-1 lead to put him on the verge of the third round.

So whether it was against South Africa , whether it was against Sri Lanka , the intensity and the expectation, certainly from myself as coach and I'm sure from the captain, would have been the same.

So while he was tweeting Thursday about Santa Claus and Australian Rules Football, Durant was dunking on the sort of nonexistent defense typically seen at an All-Star Game and not the NBA Finals.

James and Kyrie Irving shot 19 for 42 between them but the sloppy ball handling allowed the Warriors to take almost as many shots - 106 - as they had points, and 20 more ...

Here's a look at the key stats that reveal why Cristiano Ronaldo is such a prolific footballer and Real Madrid such a dominant side. We thought we had enough to win the game.
