New Zealand off-spinner Jeetan Patel took the hot and humid conditions of Kolkata in his stride and answered the call of his country with aplomb, picking up 2/66 in 21 overs to apply the brakes on the Indian batting line-up. Rahane toed the same line of patience. Pujara's attempt to start developing himself as a spinner was as mortifying as India's overseas performances during those years.
The skipper also lauded his players, especially Mitchell Santner, for efforts with the bat and ball and Luke Ronchi's 80-run inning.

Stenson reproduced the form which brought him the Open title in July with three birdies in a row from the sixth, the 40-year-old Swede coming agonisingly close to a hole-in-one on the eighth.
Westwood, meanwhile, insisted all the pressure at Hazeltine this week is heaped on the shoulders of the United States players after they formed an 11-man task force to review all aspects of their past Ryder Cup failures. "Someone in the crowd said, 'I can make it, ' we let him have a go", Stenson told the Golf Channel. "I'm not suggesting it's going to be this week, because that's not the right thing to say.

Rooney's lack of form has been a major talking point this season, and United manager Jose Mourinho made the decision to take the 30-year-old out of the starting team and only introduced him late in the game.

Glenn said he felt personally disappointed at the behaviour of the man who was brought in to replace Roy Hodgson after the disappointing Euro 2016 exit.

I have to forget about this one , move on and show up next week. "Football in general is a humbling game", Fitzpatrick said.
