England needs 178 to win

ADELAIDE: Jimmy Anderson produced his best bowling performance ever in Australia to drag England back into the inaugural day-night Ashes test, and skipper Joe Root posted an unbeaten 67 to bring an unlikely upset closer to reality. England, after losing the series-opener by 10 wickets last week in Brisbane and being bowled out for 227 to concede a 215-run first-innings deficit in the second test, reached 176-4 at stumps on Tuesday. That leaves Root's lineup with three sessions remaining on Wednesday and six wickets in hand to score the 178 runs required to reach a victory target of 354 and level the series 1-1.

Sri Lanka announce ODI squad

New Delhi: Dinesh Chandimal was left out of the 16-member Sri Lankan one-day squad for the three-match series against India despite his face-saving century in the ongoing third Test here. The team, to be led by Thisara Perera, has been ratified by Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera after an initial confusion that led to stopping of nine players departing for India. As per a particular law in Sri Lanka, a team has to get sanction from the sports minister. "The team has been ratified by the Sports Minister Hon. Dayasiri Jayasekera. The team is scheduled to leave the island at 00.30 hours on the 6th of December 2017 (Tuesday night/Wednesday morning)," the Sri Lankan Board said in a statement.

India face belgium in quarters

Bhubaneswar: An inconsistent India will have to raise their game by leaps and bounds if they are to upstage Olympic silver medallist Belgium in the quarterfinal of the Hockey World League (HWL) Final here on Wednesday. India, bronze medallist in 2015, finished last in Pool B after garnering just one point from one draw and two losses and will now take on the world No. 2 side in the knockout round after the Red Lions topped Pool A following their 3-0 win over Netherlands. Belgium's all three goals came from penalty corners through Loick Luypaert  and Tom Boon. The victory margin could have been 4-0 for Belgium had Luypaert not missed a penalty.
