Thomas shoots 63, trails Harman by one at Open

Thirty-two players had sub-par rounds on Saturday, the most ever for the third round. The final-hole struggle was in marked contrast to his second-round rally, when he became the first player from China to make the cut at a U.S. He might need one at this rate.

Before I played the game professionally and would be considered a masochist (enjoys bringing pain upon himself), now I'm a bit of a sadist. Read More »

Koepka, Harman set pace in US Open finale


What's also fascinating about that, of course, is that to do this, Thomas had to eagle the 18th hole, a 670-yard par 5 the likes of which Miller never encountered. He found stardom right at home as the U.S. Open champion. A three-putt bogey from Harman on the 13th left clubhouse leader Matsuyama as Koepka's nearest challenger, but the American promptly got up and down from a bunker on the 14th and holed from 12 feet for another birdie on the next.

Pakistan thrash holders India to win Champions Trophy

The way they turned things around speaks volumes of the talent they have in their side. Seems like we are playing in Pakistan and thanks to all those who supported. India missed direct hits when it mattered, they bowled no-balls when batsman (read Fakhar Zaman ) edged and got caught, bowled negative lines in pursuit of containing Pakistan openers and although Pandya hit some meaty blows to score a fastest half-century in ICC ODI event final, it was too little too late.

Pakistan create history, thrash India in Champions Trophy final

This Victory Over India Will Be Remembered for Long Time: Sarfraz Ahmed

Pakistan's other hero-in-chief was opener Fakhar Zaman who, in only his fourth one-day global, scored a buccaneering and at times outrageously lucky century. The tournament was good for me. Hasan had a superb tournament, finishing as the highest wicket-taker and taking home the man-of-the-series award. "Even with the ball, they were very aggressive", he added. Read More »

Champions Trophy: Sarfraz Ahmed wants cricket to return to Pakistan

So what we've produced after that doesn't come as any surprise because that's how we trained, and that's what we worked at. I think it will be a very interesting game.
