    Team New Zealand anticipate they'll be given enough notice should the opening America's Cup world series regatta be cancelled


    The Cagliari event is under threat due to the coronavirus outbreak, which has swept across Italy.

    Chief operating officer Kevin Shoebridge says their 52 team members are still scheduled to converge on Italy around April 12 and the boat's about to be shipped from the dock in Singapore.



    The Adelaide Thunderbirds have been fined $105,000, $95,000 of which is suspended, after breaching the salary cap during the last Australian domestic netball season where they finished second-to-last.

    The club exceeded their player payments by more than $23,000 last year with vehicles also provided above approved player contracts.



    Rain and a lack of reserve days have ousted England from the Twenty20 cricket World Cup.

    Their semi-final in Sydney's been washed out, with India advancing to Sunday's final after topping their group in pool play.

    They'll face Australia after the hosts beat South Africa by five runs via the Duckworth Lewis-Stern method.

    They held the Proteas to 92 for five, chasing 98 in 13 overs.



    The Highlanders have all their All Blacks back for their Super Rugby match against the Bulls in Pretoria on Sunday morning.

    Liam Coltman moves from the bench to start at hooker, with Shannon Frizell back from a rest to start at blindside flanker.

    Aaron Smith retains the halfback role, and will start as captain due to the injured absence of James Lentjes.



    A bleak outlook looms for Rugby Australia.

    Sydney's Daily Telegraph claims that three weeks after dropping their broadcast package line into the waters of the open market, the governing body hasn't had a single nibble.

    The lack of formal interest has forced them to extend their offer period another week.



    The Perth Wildcats will get a chance to defend their Australian basketball league title against the Sydney Kings after clinching the third and deciding game of their semi-final series 93-82 against the Cairns Taipans.



    Astana have joined a number of professional cycling teams withdrawing from racing amid the coronavirus outbreak.

    They're out until March 20.

    Cycling's considered a vulnerable sport with a peloton formed by 180 riders who share rooms and team buses, drink from bottles prepared by staff, and are often in close proximity to fans.



    A coronavirus scare for New Zealand's Olympic boxing hopefuls.

    Featherweight Amy Andrew was in quarantine after showing 'flu symptoms at their training camp in Italy.

    She since tested negative for the illness and has rejoined the team in Jordan at the Games' qualifiers.

    However, she's been withdrawn from her fights under coaching orders, leaving another qualification shot at Paris in May.
