Home Cricket SL v WI


Sri Lanka win the series

The West Indies started off the second Test at Galle with enough promise, but as usual, they lost their way despite gaining the upper hand. The spin duo of Sri Lanka Lasith Embuldeniya and Ramish Mendis spun the web around West Indian batters to gift Mickey Arthur a perfect farewell.

As expected, Sri Lanka win

Since 1993, the West Indies have met Sri Lanka eleven times where they drew just four times and three of those came in a rain-affected Test series where Chris Gayle and Kumar Sangakkara shone with the bat. At the start of the new century, the duel between Brian Lara and Muttiah Muralitharan generated hype where both of them had been at their pristine best, but Lara dominating Murali is still a part of West Indian cricket folklore. Otherwise, it has been all about Sri Lanka in their backyard.


Real Madrid are the champions of Champions League

It felt like one of those old flicks they show on Saturday afternoons in which the gang successfully gets together for one final, big heist. Except, even without Mbappe, you suspect this won't be their last -- not when there's a guy like Ancelotti, one of the few men who can pull off the cardigan-cigar-shades combination and lead a team in transition to a league and cup double. Not with young guns - Vinicius, Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Rodrygo - already with the "big one" under their belt. Not with Courtois, in the prime of his career, staking a claim as the world's No. 1 between the posts and getting a few things off his chest. ("We showed again who is the King of Europe.")

14 for Real Madrid
