Ben Stokes launched a memorable blitz on the Proteas to effectively take any chance of a home win out of the equation on day four of the second Test match at Newlands on Monday.

The England’s all-rounder’s onslaught was as unorthodox as it was effective as he shared a partnership of 92 with Dom Sibley and contributed 72 off the runs scored off just 47 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes.

The old firm of Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad took charge as England bowled themselves back into the series and an almost certain first innings lead on day two of the second Test match against the Proteas at Newlands on Saturday. The Proteas finished the day on 215/8, still 54 runs in arrears with only Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje left to bat with Vernon Philander.

Just how significant England’s likely first innings advantage will be remains to be seen but bearing in mind that this has been an unusually low scoring New Year Test match with 18 wickets having fallen for less than 500 runs it looks like being important.

The Wallabies have fallen to England in their Rugby World Cup Quarter Final clash in Oita on Saturday night. Despite seizing the upper hand in the opening 15 minutes, the Wallabies were unable to contain the northerners who pulled away to a 40-16 victory with a pair of tries in each half.

The Wallabies could produce only three points from their early dominance, before winger Jonny May struck twice for England against the grain to take the wind out of Australia's sails. In a three-minute period midway through the half, May scored his first when the ball was sent through the hands, and moments later was back over in the same corner after regathering a kick from centre Henry Slade.

Ish Sodhi will be part of an extended 14-man squad for New Zealand's opening two ODIs against England in Hamilton and Mount Maunganui.

The BLACKCAPS have added the third spin option to an otherwise unchanged squad from the one that took on Pakistan last month. Sodhi comes in with good form, while also considering both Mitchell Santner and Todd Astle have missed games though injury recently.

The Australian National Selection Panel has chosen Victoria and Melbourne Renegades batsman Cameron White as Chris Lynn’s replacement for the Gillette One-Day International Series against England.

The right-hander has been in outstanding limited-overs form with 285 runs at an average of 142.5 and a strike-rate of 115.85 for the Renegades in this summer’s KFC Big Bash League.

The Australian Women's Cricket Team has suffered a 40-run loss to England in the second T20 INTL of the Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes Series at Manuka Oval.

Needing 153 runs to win, Australian openers Beth Mooney (17) and Alyssa Healy (24) again made a fast start before Jenny Gunn dismissed them both. From then on Australia continued to lose wickets regularly, with only Rachael Haynes (14) and Delissa Kimmince (17) looking like turning things around, but neither were able to get the job done as Australia was eventually bowled out for 112.

The Wallabies have had their winning run ended in a controversial showdown with England on a rain-soaked Twickenham Stadium in London. England scored three tries in the final eight minutes to blow out the final scoreline to 30-6, however the game had taken a dramatic turn after a potentially match-levelling try to Marika Koroibete in the 70th minute was disallowed for an obstruction.

Trailling 13-6 after a tight first half and a try to England winger Elliot Daly in the 55th minute, the Wallabies looked to have broken through when Koroibete  spun over the line in the clutches of English flanker Chris Robshaw and tried to muscle the ball down.
