  • Kohli slams team, vents ire at media after Centurion debacle

New fast bowling discovery Lungi Ngidi plunged India into deep trouble as they struggled in pursuit of a victory target of 287 on the fourth day of the second Test against South Africa at SuperSport Park on Tuesday.

Except Kohli, who is the second-highest scorer after AB De Villiers (200 runs in two matches) in the series amassing 191 runs in four innings, no one performed for India. Kohli said personal milestones don't matter to him if the team is losing at the post-match ceremony in Centurion. India looked to be in the game in different phases but South Africa were too good in the hand and won the match by a convincing 135-run margin.

"You're telling me we could have played the best XI". I think he wants the best for his team like anyone. Whoever plays should be good enough to go out there and do the job for the team. The reason why we have such a big squad is that we believe in their abilities. We tried but we weren't good enough, especially in the fielding department. You can't pinpoint and say this is the best eleven. "It makes us even hungrier to go out there as a team, so we're really looking forward to the next Test".

Apple's first comedy series to star Kristen Wiig
Hosted by celebrity judges Will.i.am, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, and Gary Vaynerchuk, it premiered on June 6, 2017. Yes, you read that right, this is an original series being developed for Apple .

On being asked if he though he made the best use of his resources, he said, "When something does not work, obviously it's going to be spoken against". We have not come here to just participate. "I'm here to answer your questions, not to fight with you", he countered and said regarding this. Seven down, India still needed 200 to win.

Meanwhile, Kohli became the second Indian player to receive one or more demerit points since the introduction of the system in September 2016. "These conditions were something we were used to playing in and we should have certainly done better than we have".

Kohli said it was not acceptable for a team to repeatedly fall prey to such soft modes of dismissals. "The All-India senior selection committee has named Dinesh Karthik as the replacement for Wriddhiman Saha for the third and final Test against South Africa".

Australian Open: Djokovic makes comeback with a victory
Despite a shaky finish on Rod Laver Arena on Thursday, Sharapova was relatively comfortable in a 6-1, 7-6 (7-4) second-round win. Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova lost 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 to Andrea Petkovic.

It will be a busy schedule for India as they travel to England for five Test and are also set to tour Australia at the end of the year. The game was finished in three days, one (day) was a washout. "You can accept defeat but not the way we played", he conceded. "Coming close to winning games in India. can you count?"

At 163-5, du Plessis decided it was time to shut the door and he was at the wicket for another 41 overs to keep India out. Bhuvneshwar Kumar who toyed around the South African top order in the first Test at Cape Town was dropped for Ishant Sharma who failed to leave the same impact at Centurion. In the 19th ball of the morning, Cheteshwar Pujara (19) was run out for the second time in the match. So yes I think it was touching on the extreme side, but if you get that you still have to try and win.

"Maybe it is a factor of me identifying my weaknesses more but I don't feel out of nick or anything like that".

Airbus delivered record number of planes in 2017
Emirates is by far the A380's largest customer having taken on more than 100 of its total orders for 142 superjumbos. Airbus is facing multiple corruption investigations, notably in Britain, France and Austria.

However, it was the one sarcastic line - "So you tell me the best XI and we'll play that" - that gave a peep into the mind of a disappointed captain.
