There are three big nations in cricket, India (where the sport is a religion) England and Australia - these three countries make all the money from the sport, due largely in part to the current model that determines how the money flows from the sport.

St. John’s, ANTIGUA - The report of the findings from the “alleged interference” in the selection process for the senior men’s team is in. The report also features a seven-point recommendation going forward.

Interviews were conducted with nine West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) personnel and the three cases which were under scrutiny was one home test series against Australia; one away one-day international series against Zimbabwe (which was cancelled) and the away ODI series against Sri Lanka…all in 2015.

When both team met earlier this year in the Caribbean, it was a clean sweep for the touring side as Australia won 2-0, but the tour down under that will get on its way on Wednesday grants the West Indies team an opportunity for redemption.

Captain Jason Holder is expecting a more consistent performance from his team in the upcoming three-match Test series against Australia.

Jamaica is on a mission in Australia at the Netball World Cup. That is to win gold. Called “Gold Rush Down Under” the mission is to break the strangle hold of the top two, hosts Australia and their near neighbours New Zealand, over the top spot in netball.

The opening game against Samoa showed just how serious the Sunshine Girls are as they crushed their opponents 90-44 in the first game of Pool B on Thursday night local time, to record the highest team score and the largest margin of victory on Day 1.

After bowling out the Aussies on day one for a mere 136, England failed to really distinguish themselves with the bat, putting only 281 runs on the board, for a first innings lead of 145 runs.
