IND vs ENG: Virat Kohli Says India’s “Extremely Strong Bench Strength” Will Help When Transition Happens

India's supremely talented bench strength has made skipper Virat Kohli quite confident that the team will have a relatively smooth ride when the transition period dawns upon it in the next few years. With the rise of several young players like Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj and the maverick Rishabh Pant, India have been on a roll both at home and abroad. On Saturday, the side humbled England 3-1 after clinching the fourth and final Test by an innings and 25 runs in Ahmedabad.

Bernd Leno reacts to Granit Xhaka’s error vs Burnley

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has reacted to Granit Xhaka’s blunder during the club’s 1-1 Premier League draw against Burnley on the road. The Gunners took the lead after just six minutes on the clock through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and should have doubled the advantage with the chances which were handed to them. However, they ended up going into the break with the scores level after a horrendous mistake from Xhaka. The Swiss midfielder asked for the ball from Leno in the six-yard box and attempted to clear across the face of goal. Instead, the ball struck Chris Wood’s hip and cannoned into an empty net with Leno rooted at the far post. That happened to be the final goal of the game despite chances for both sides for the remainder of the contest. Speaking aft...

Zidane labels Benzema ´a joy for football´ as talisman prepares for Madrid derby return

Zinedine Zidane described Karim Benzema as a “joy for football” as the Real Madrid boss prepared to welcome the striker back for Sunday’s crucial derby with Atletico Madrid.

We know the talent he has and he has responded. He has worked like hell for the last few months and the results are here to see. Yesterday's innings was the best counter-attacking innings I have seen in India," Shastri said in the post-match presentation.Shastri further talked about the first innings partnerships which Pant had with Rohit Sharma and Washington Sundar.
