Uber-flat English pitches would mar World Cup

Pakistan just became the first team in ODI history to score 340-plus in three consecutive innings, yet still lost all of those matches in England. That’s how insanely batting-friendly English conditions have become in ODIs. Despite not having a dominant batting line-up Pakistan have still piled up massive scores of 361, 358 and 341 so […]

There was something about the Broncos versus Roosters clash that led many to believe Brisbane had more than a hope in Hades. I’m not quite sure why, considering the Roosters 8-1 record and the Broncos’ rather questionable recent form. Yet, to their credit, Brisbane lifted and challenged the Roosters from the outset. It was to […]
Ever since Kentucky offered the 6-foot-6 prospect back on February 23, most recruiting analysts felt it was a two-horse race between the Wildcats and Blue Devils, with the latter being the rumored favorite.
Over the last week, however, the Wildcats have received four consecutive Crystal Ball picks, including one from 247 Sports Director of Basketball Scouting Jerry Meyer and Duke insider Andrew Slater.
Rugby Australia is turning into Fort Freefall

There’s one burning question from the rugby faithful which I keep answering: “Who is Rugby AU chairman Cameron Clyne?” Clyne was a genuine and highly-respected heavyweight in the banking industry before he retired, but he’s a proven paperweight as a rugby administrator. The axing of the Western Force from Super Rugby and the ongoing farce […]
At the recent Nike EYBL event in Atlanta, Boston told KSR that while his recruitment is open, there are four schools recruiting him the hardest right now.
“I would say Duke, Alabama, Kentucky, and Florida,” he said. “I think that’s it.”
Since then, however, the Tigers have recruited him as a package deal with AAU teammate and fellow five-star guard Sharife Cooper, something that intrigues Boston. This would explain Alabama being dropped from the final list and Auburn being added.
The five-star prospect added that he loves Kentucky because of how focused they are on winning in Lexington, something he is definitely interested in when he gets to college next year.
“I love how Coach Cal, all of the coaches and players, they all hold each other accountable,” he said. “They just want to win.”
In his official scouting report over on 247 Sports, Jerry Meyer highlights his length, athleticism, and “natural feel for the game.”
A long athlete who is still growing. Has good athleticism and a natural feel for the game. Lack of strength needs to improve, especially to be effective long term on the defensive end. Terrific scorer who is effective at all three levels. Has a nose for the ball and the length to be a dangerous rebounder. Has tremendous upside, which makes him a potential lottery pick.

Come on down, young fella.
