A confidential order from who-can’t-be-refused is just a click away from being sent to Nagpur, the venue for the last Test. This is how it reads: Should England survive Kolkata too, slip in some burglars into the England nets in the guise of net bowlers to steal all their bats. Read more

For the next one month, spin will be the most used and debated term as India look to tame England in a four-Test series at home. Since skipper MS Dhoni gave a call for preparing turning tracks at home, there seems to be an anxiety to hit the visiting batsmen on dry surfaces that crack and throw up puffs of dust at least in the first half of the five-day encounter, if not on the opening day itself.

Two goals to clinch the Premier League title in ‘Fergie Time’, one wonders who wrote that script for Manchester City in the Sunday drama. Against a side that had the poorest away record for the season coupled with City not having lost at Eastlands through the campaign, Roberto Mancini’s men nearly brought about their self-inflicted ignominy with Jamie Mackie’s 66th-minute goal that put Queens Park Rangers (QPR) on the cusp of a historic twist.

As weird as it may sound, it is true that an octopus is actually predicting the right outcome of the German games. This little mollusk has been named Paul, and was born in England but currently resides in the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany. Paul has already betrayed his own homeland by predicting a German win over England in the knockout stage of this World Cup. He makes his predictions by eating one of the two mussels trapped in cube shaped containers, which are marked with the German national flag and the flag of Germany’s opponent in the upcoming game. The container that is chosen first by the octopus is the winner of that particular match. Read more

He is a disciplinarian. He is stern and strict. He wears odd-shaped glasses that exaggerate the strictness quotient. He folds his arms across his chest during training and warm-ups, the beady eyes missing not a single thing. He doesn’t dance and jump around on the touchline when a player misses the ball or strays out of position. A silent glare is sufficient to let the player know what went wrong. At times, he throws out his arms in disbelief to question why a player started a particular move. Read more
