Warriors have 'no doubt' Kerr will coach next season

The Warriors won a league-record 14 consecutive games during this year's playoffs and went 16-1 overall in the postseason. The Warriors , who beat Cleveland in the 2015 NBA Finals only to lose to them a year ago after squandering a 3-1 series lead, went a record-setting 15-1 in the playoffs, their only loss coming in Game 4 of the best-of-seven championship.



England crumble to 211 all out against Pakistan

Amir's absence will hurt Pakistan or not, only time will tell. Pakistan , meanwhile, will have to overcome the loss of Amir from the side that defeated Sri Lanka at this same venue two days ago to secure their spot in this semi-final. We know that realistically England are playing unbelievably well. While Roy has failed, every other batsman has hit form with Alex Hales (151), Joe Root (212), Eoin Morgan (175) and Ben Stokes (150) among the top 11 tournament run-scorers.
