    Chinese state television has refused to air NBA basketball exhibition games this week, after a tweet from Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey which backed protests in Hong Kong.

    It's resulted in the loss of Chinese sponsors and broadcasts in a key NBA market.

    Australian cricket selector Trevor Hohns won't guarantee David Warner a spot at the top of the order for the summer's first test against Pakistan.
