    The Silver Ferns have suffered a blow before taking the court for the Netball Nations Cup against England

    The Silver Ferns have suffered a blow before taking the court for the Netball Nations Cup against England


    Defender Michaela Sokolich-Beatson ruptured her Achilles tendon during a training match in Nottingham, and is travelling home to begin her recovery.



    Logan van Beek has turned the men's T20 Super Smash final in Wellington's favour at the Basin Reserve.

    After scoring 15 off eight with the bat and taking three for 28 with the ball, he's secured a run out and two boundary tight-rope catches in the same over, including the key dismissal of Martin Guptill for 60 off 53 balls.

    The Firebirds beat Auckland by 22 runs after posting 168 for seven.

    Earlier, the Blaze beat the Hearts by 36 runs in a weather-abridged seven-over contest to win a third consecutive women's title.

    Captain Joe Root has taken test-best figures of four for 31 with his off spin to bring England to the brink of victory over South Africa in their third test at Port Elizabeth.

    The Proteas are 102 for six in their second innings after following-on - the hosts need a further 188 runs to make the visitors bat again.



    India have responded to their opening trouncing by winning their three-match one-day international series against Australia 2-1.

    This morning in Bengaluru they have cruised to a seven-wicket victory with 15 balls to spare chasing 287.



    The Breakers have boosted their Australian basketball league play-off hopes with a drubbing of Melbourne United 90-68 in Auckland.

    They now sit just half a game back from the top four with five games left in their regular season.



    All Whites striker Chris Wood has scored for Burnley in their 2-1 upset win over Leicester City in English football's Premier League.



    Lee Westwood has held off a series of challengers to clinch the European Tour's Abu Dhabi golf championship by two shots.

    The victory makes him a tour winner in four different decades.

    Matt Kuchar has survived a triple bogey on the front nine before claiming a three-shot victory over Justin Rose in his maiden appearance at the Singapore Open.



    Rain has washed out a thrilling final game between the Auckland Tuatara and hosts the Canberra Cavalry with the scores tied 7-all in the 13th inning.

    One win in the four-game final round series against the Brisbane Bandits at North Harbour Stadium will secure the Tuatara a play-off spot.



    Conor McGregor's successful 40-second return to the UFC in Las Vegas has sparked interest from an old foe.

    Afterwards, boxer Floyd Mayweather posted what looked to be photoshopped promotional poster on Instagram for a potential rematch.

    The pair fought with the boxing gloves in 2017, which Mayweather won via technical knockout.
