The all-rounder has not recovered from a back injury that he suffered during the Asia Cup in September. In the limited-overs set-up, left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem received his maiden call-up for the T20s against West Indies . The skipper, who has scored 297 runs so far in the series, will be aiming for a big knock again. His glovework as well has improved leaps and bounds in all these years.

Guardiola has nearly a full squad to choose from with Kevin De Bruyne making his first start of the season in Tuesday's Champions League victory at Shakhtar Donetsk . Obsessive, demanding, stressful. He was like a brutal father. And after everything he has been through with the club and the city, he admitted: "I am sorry, I will be a Mancunian for the rest of my life".

Betts joins six other Major League Baseball players who have won free tacos for the nation, most recently following Cameron Maybin on the Houston Astros who also stole a base against the Dodgers in 2017. "I'll let everyone else get it", Holt told the interviewer Tuesday. "I'm sorry, Taco Bell", the contrite utilityman said, when asked if Taco Bell or any of its employees had dignified his insult with a response.

They have since settled on their next skipper, with the team announcing Rocco Baldelli as the 14th manager in franchise history on Thursday. While manager Paul Molitor was more than open to data and modern baseball strategies - evidenced by the Twins' aggressive shifting in his tenure and usage of "the opener" in 2018 - Baldelli has spent the past seven years immersed in an analytic-based culture with the Rays.

The six-time All-Star's response follows a report from an unnamed Red Sox executive who said the team "did not reach out to him, but it is not out of spite", according to Dan Shaughnessy of The Boston Globe . Red Sox star Mookie Betts has received plenty of praise for his play on the field this season. Los Angeles will turn to freshman Walker Buehler , whose last start came on October 20 in Game 7 of the NLCS at Miller Park, where he allowed just one run in 4 ²/₃ innings to help the ...

Despite having a standing trade request, Butler has been putting up his usual strong numbers for the Wolves - 24.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and a league-leading 3.8 steals per game. So if the Rockets' pick were to somehow end up in the lottery and their pick fell inside the protected area, there would be few possibilities for the Timberwolves to recoup value for that pick.

He didn't let his chin drop. It's his fifth premature exit in 10 races and third since announcing he would depart Red Bull for Renault . "He rode the storm and emerged the other side".

Leipzig are now fifth in the Bundesliga, but they have lost just once in the league this season. "We have one or two issues but it's OK, we have a number of young players who have been training very hard and working hard to have the opportunity to play".

As the final whistle blew at Old Trafford, Manchester United fans could be forgiven for not understanding quite what to make of the encounter. For once, the blame could be put neither on Mourinho or on the players - there is simply too big a gulf in class between United and Europe's best.

But the result was even more impressive: The Lakers trailed by eight points with six minutes left in the fourth quarter before Lance Stephenson , who finished with 12 points, started a 15-2 rally with back-to-back 3-pointers. Jamal Murray scored 22 points with 10 rebounds, and Monte Morris added 20 off the bench for the Nuggets. Ross kept the Magic within striking distance but the Trail Blazers compiled a 91-80 lead at the end of the third.

It worked really good, because I think Karolina was up and down and struggling sometimes with her serve. At the end of the group stage of the competition in the semi-finals will be two best tennis players. It was Wozniacki who struck first in a tense opening set, but a problem with her left knee limited the Dane's movement and allowed Kvitova to level the match.

Through all the ups and downs, Schilling insisted he has "slept soundly" most nights of his life - and will continue to sleep soundly after his exclusion from Wednesday's pregame ceremonies. You've probably seen the latest Andrew Benintendi catch. In the clip above, Schilling further addresses the issue, reiterating much of what he said in his Facebook post and adding that "I know who I am, I know what I am, and my rings are still there, my trophies are still on the shelf".

Chain-smoking former Napoli boss Sarri is prone to putting a cigarette filter to his mouth on English football's touchlines as he can not light up. I hope to be able to do it in the future. The powerful midfielder swept in calmly after Davide Zappacosta's low cross, taking full advantage of some poor BATE marking. First half: Loftus-Cheek scores.

I was not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then you think something is obviously wrong or people are not happy. "Really. If he is not celebrating, I don't know if he is maybe a bit annoyed about getting asked about it [his scoring record]". Swiss global Shaqiri, a close-season signing from relegated Stoke City, was seen by many as a squad player but he is showing the kind of creativity allied with work-rate that could earn him more playing time than ...

Hope hit his 10th four just wide of third man. During their stay in the middle, the two were involved in a partnership of 139 runs in 142 balls for the third wicket at the Dr YSR ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, set amidst picturesque hills. The rest of the squad is the same even as Kedar Jadhav proved his match fitness by playing in the Deodhar Trophy for India A. Nurse was the pick of the West Indies bowlers with his figures of 2-46.

For Alex Cora, he prides himself as being one of the guys and it's not uncommon to see him hanging out with his players inside the clubhouse. The Dodgers loaded the bases with one out in the seventh but could manage only a single run, Machado bringing across his third of the game on a sacrifice fly that trimmed the Boston advantage to 5-4 before Nunez put the contest out of reach.

During Tuesday night's game featuring the Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons , Joel Embiid got Andre Drummond in trouble with a bit of acting. "We lost, so I'm not supposed to talk trash, be he knows damn well that he can't guard me". Think about it that's a silly statement! Drummond was hit with his second technical foul and ejected with 42.8 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter when his hand brushed Embiid's face after a made basket by Philadelphia.

Speaking ahead of his team's match against Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, Guardiola said "something special" was missing from the club's bid to conquer Europe. They made the game so hard but I think we controlled the game so well - especially on the counter attacks. In the first half hour, Riyad Mahrez could and perhaps should have scored twice, once after City had broken with breathtaking pace from their own half, before he then also set up David Silva to flick impudently against Shakhtar's ...
