Australia's National Selection Panel have named a 13-player squad for the first two Magellan Ashes Series Tests in Brisbane and Adelaide. West Australian Cameron Bancroft is set for his Test debut following solid performances in the Sheffield Shield this season. National Selector Trevor Hohns said Bancroft had earnt his call-up to the Test side.

“Cameron has been a player of interest to us for some time now, having been unlucky to miss out on the Test tour to Bangladesh that was cancelled in 2015. He is a very talented and tough cricketer who shows a good temperament for Test cricket. He has thoroughly earned and deserves his call-up following some outstanding performances in the early rounds of the JLT Sheffield Shield competition this season."

A half-century to Alex Blackwell and a brilliant all-round performance from Ashleigh Gardner has helped Australia to a two-wicket win in the opening One-Day International match of the Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes Series at Allan Border Field in Brisbane. Much like the World Cup game between the two sides the result was still up in the air with six balls to go, but Blackwell took her side over the line.

After winning the toss and electing to bowl, Australia put in a disciplined bowling performance to restrict England to 9-228, with Gardner (3-47), Megan Schutt (2-44) and Ellyse Perry (2-50) the leading wicket-takers.

The impressive run by U.S. Under-17 Men's National Team at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup came to an end in the Quarterfinal after a 4-1 loss to 2017 UEFA U-17 runners-up England. Josh Sargent's strike gave the USA hope late in the game and also tied him with Freddy Adu as the USA's leading all-time scorer in youth World Cups with seven goals.

A quick-fire brace from England's Rhian Brewster midway through the first half gave the USA a mountain to climb, and the U.S. didn't shy away from the challenge. Led by Sargent, Tim Weah and Ayo Akinola up top, the USA went about carving out numerous opportunities to get back in the game either through possession or, more often, in transition, where the team's lightning quick counters gave the England defense all it could handle.
