However, the 30-year-old Gunner has not suffered a prolonged spell on the sidelines since fracturing his foot in 2014, something that the Hammers would truly benefit from.

World No1 Sir Andy Murray has promised to come out all guns blazing in his semi-final clash with Stan Wawrinka after booking his place in the French Open last four with victory over Kei Nishikori yesterday. 8 Kei Nishikori , who got past a slow start to defeat Fernando Verdasco 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0.

In the weeks leading up to the draft, Hunter Greene out of Notre Dame High School was one of the most intriguing names on the board, starring as both a pitcher and a shortstop. 1 overall pick since the team took catcher Joe Mauer in 2001. The first was another shortstop, Tim Foli from Notre Dame/Sherman Oaks, taken first by the New York Mets in 1968, whose 16-year career with six teams included hitting for the cycle (in 1976) and earning a World Series ring with the Pittsburgh ...
Pakistan cruised to the ICC Champions Trophy final after thrashing hosts England by eight wickets in the first semi-final at the Sophia Gardens here on Wednesday. We did prepare, Pakistan bowled well but we didn't adjust and 200 isn't competitive, 250-270 would be a good score". Talking about the Playing XI, Kohli said that Ravichandran Ashwin performed very well in the virtual quarter-final clash and therefore, they are most likely to go with the same squad in the upcoming match.
Highway patrol officers report that there was only one person on the blimp (the pilot) and he is alert and conscious. "It started deflating, and then it started going down", said Bryan Rosine.
As Pakistan batting progressed, there was another interruption of the rain which then reduced match to 41 overs, the revised target was 289. Captain Kohli and Yuvraj Singh stripped the Pakistan bowlers. "He was playing the IPL but then, global runs are very different, against a quality bowling attack as well", Kohli said . Pandya put those reservations to rest, smoking three sixes in the last over to help India finish with 319/3.
Kohli's side avoided the embarrassment of an early exit as they survived the must-win encounter to advance from Group B in style. Hashim Amla scored the only hundred in South Africa's campaign while du Plessis, de Kock and David Miller contributed a half-century each.
Morata has emerged as a prime target in recent weeks with the strikers agent, Juanma Lopez, quoted by the Mirror as saying earlier this week that a "very interesting" offer was on the table from United. Knowing fully well what Morata's main strengths are, Mourinho would be able to utilise the Spain worldwide in a way that is extremely advantageous to United and will likely bring the best out of a player who has struggled for regular starts and minutes on the pitch under Zinedine ...
In marked contrast to their nail-biting chase in a three-wicket, virtual quarter-final, win over Sri Lanka in Cardiff on Monday, Pakistan then cruised to a total of 215 for two with a mammoth 77 balls to spare. Unable to find the breakthrough, English skipper Eoin Morgan got Adil Rashid back into action, and the leg-spinner delivered on the very first delivery of his fourth over with the wicket of the unsafe Zaman, stumped by wicketkeeper Jos Buttler.
United the highlights on New Year's Day. This may be Arsenal's first season competing in the Europa League, but fans are anxious about the effect this competition could have on players and away support. The 27-year-old has featured fairly regularly for the Red Devils since arriving at Old Trafford from Fulham back in 2010, so could provide some invaluable experience to a Newcastle defence that is arguably in need of some additional top flight quality.
It should stay the same. We have played a lot of games against them after that - in the Asia Cup , in the T20 World Cup and of course the home series that we have won. Since ICC has not kept a reserve day for the semi-finals, Men in Blue will seal the final berth since they finished higher than their opponents in their group.
I mean, if you hit the fairway, it's no big deal. Navigate from tee to green in regulation, however, and word from the players is that the greens are rolling fast and true, with many going as far to say that these are some of the best putting surfaces they've ever stepped foot on.
England , previously the only unbeaten team left in the eight-strong one-day worldwide tournament and huge favourites to defeat Pakistan , were bowled out for just 211 in Cardiff on Wednesday. We can not think that it is India whom we are coming up against and take extra pressure. That it managed to hold its own in a match where there was quite a few twists and turns, should boost Pakistan's morale.
The victor of the game would play Pakistan in the tournament finale on Sunday. India have won their last four ODI matches in succession at Edgbaston whilst Bangladesh have lost both times they've played there in this format.

Although the club have already got their transfer dealings going this summer following the arrival of Hadi Sacko on a permanent basis after having a successful loan spell at Elland Road last term. Monk narrowly missed out on the play-offs places in his first season but departed after just 12 months in charge. But Press Association Sport understands Christiansen had been Radrizzani's top target in the hope that he will have a similar impact on English football as Huddersfield's David Wagner ...
England was at the receiving end in ICC World Cup 2015 and here it has been New Zealand and Australia. The Indian batting has done well in most of their group matches and will aim to continue their good form. Or in the boardroom. Credit also needs to be given to skipper Virat Kohli as he rotated the bowlers very intelligently. No more and no less. Bangladesh's third-wicket duo shared a stand of 123 but, ideally, the Tigers would have wanted at least one of them to go on to a bigger ...
Yuvraj has hit a 32-ball 53 runs in the tournament opener against arch-rival Pakistan. "We don't know what is going to be the result, but once you can play at your best, you know that you are going to play at your best and things can change".

Before the final group match against Sri Lanka, Mickey Arthur had called Hasan one of the "beacons" of this Pakistan side and they were sentiments echoed by Sarfraz who ...
Jelena Ostapenko and Timea Bacsinszky embraced after ensuring they will meet in the semi-finals of the French Open on their birthdays, while tennis legends were rolling back the years on a rainy day in Paris .

Mayweather dreams of surpassing that record with a win over McGregor on August 26 to become the first boxer in history to to win 50 fights without a loss. The Nevada Athletic Commission on Wednesday approved the request from Mayweather Promotions to put on a boxing card on August 26 at the MGM Grand.
While Pakistan's bowlers thrived on the slow wicket at Sophia Gardens, the same could not be said for England as all its key batsmen got in before throwing away their wickets.

There were a few incidents when they played a tournament in South Africa , and the needle between the two was evident in Rubel's contorted-face celebration on dismissing Kohli cheaply at the World Cup. "If both teams play well, people might get what they want to see", he said at a gathering. Bangladesh have so far ridden on the backs of their experienced players' performances to book a semi-final berth albeit with some assistance from rain in the game against Australia where they were ...
Tamim now seems set while Mushfiqur Rahim is inching closer to his fifty. On the other hand, India are one of the in-form team in the tournament except during the encounter against Sri Lanka where they struggled to defend 322. But when, to his evident dismay, the wicket-keeper hit a Jadhab full toss to Kohli at mid-wicket, Bangladesh were 179 for five in the 36th over.
