Warner dominates as Australia capitalise on toss win in Ashes Test Warner dominates as Australia capitalise on toss win in Ashes Test
- January 18, 2018

That has been apparent throughout the tour so far. So when Curran had Warner caught by Stuart Broad at mid-on and thought he had his first Test wicket his unconfined joy was as understandable as Warner's anger. Smith and Khawaja were unable to get going as they would have liked, giving England hope after their fightback. Second, keeping it on a good length and inducing errors from the batsmen is a more English way of taking wickets than an Australian way. (more...)

Conte admits below-par Chelsea were tired Conte admits below-par Chelsea were tired
- January 17, 2018

We played with almost the same players as we did against Arsenal . But I think, today, I saw a lot of players very tired. Compared to last season we are conceding less and showing more solidity.

- January 17, 2018

But the man now destined for one of those jobs is Patricia, one year after he interviewed for the head-coaching jobs with the Rams and Chargers .
