India sail into semifinals, beat SA by eight wickets

South Africa lost their last eight wickets adding just 51 runs and Du Plessis credited the Indian bowlers for choking them out on a wicket that where a 280 would have been a par score. Kusal Perera's exit from the tournament due to a hamstring injury means Sri Lanka's batting will be in flux again. We desperately needed another partnership in the middle order; that's where we lost our way.

That included a score of 103 from Hashim Amla , his 25th century in ODIs.

Nadal perfect 10 at Roland Garros

Nadal hit surely the shot of the tournament in the sixth game, taking a fine Wawrinka backhand and lashing it down the line without even looking. The feeling I have is impossible to describe. Wawrinka, who spent almost five hours more on court than Nadal to reach the final, looked confused and heavy-legged although he did have a glimmer in the third game when Nadal, still settling down, saved a break point.



Labour leader Corbyn sees possible new United Kingdom election this year or next

May's office announced earlier that the top Cabinet ministers would keep their jobs, including Treasury chief Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Amber Rudd. I think she will have to go unfortunately. Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, who took the party from one Scottish seat to 13, said there would now have to be "consensus within the country about what it means and what we seek to achieve as we leave".
