    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.



    Andy Murray has lost to Fabio Fognini in the second round of tennis' Shanghai Masters after twice failing to serve out the match.

    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.

    Warner endured a form slump as Australia retained the Ashes, scoring 95 runs at 9.5 and becoming the first batsman dismissed for single figures eight times in a series.
