    A smothering defensive performance from Northern Mystics defender Erena Mikaere has stifled the Mainland Tactix and ended their play-off hopes

    Paralympic swimming champion Nikita Howarth is stepping away from sport due to medical reasons associated with an immune disease.

    Howarth was 13 when she debuted at the 2012 London Games, became a world champion in the 200-metre SM7 individual medley the following, before going on to triumph in the discipline at Rio.

    She took up track cycling in 2017.



    Will Young's led a New Zealand XI to a seven-wicket win over Australia in their second unofficial one-day cricket international in Brisbane.

    Young was on stand-by for the World Cup but will now have shoulder surgery instead.



    The Delhi Capitals have beaten the Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad by two wickets with a ball to spare in their Indian Premier League cricket play-off.

    Basketballer Enes Kanter is balancing religion and sport during the NBA play-offs.

    Kanter is Muslim and fasting during Ramadan, while his Portland Trail Blazers compete against the Denver Nuggets for a spot in the western conference finals.

    Fasting requires an abstinence of food and water between dawn and dusk - the side's most recent game in Denver started at 8.30pm, with sunset just 24 minutes earlier.
