Kagiso Rabada rips through Windies as South Africa seal innings win
Cricket|: South Africa's fast bowler Kagiso Rabada took five wickets as they cruised to victory over West Indies by an innings and 63 runs before lunch on day three of the first test in Saint Lucia on Saturday. West Indies followed their paltry first innings score of 97 by being bowled out for 162 in reply to South Africas 322, as the tourists' seamers took advantage of a helpful wicket that had variable bounce and plenty of seam movement. Roston Chase, batting in an unfamiliar number four position, top-scored for the home side with a well-played 62, before he was bowled by left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj (2-23). No-one else managed more than 14 in the innings. Rabada returned figures of 5-34 in West Indies second innings after fellow seamer Lungi Ngidi impressed with 5-19 in the first. "It was a collective effort by the side. There has been a lot of planning and there was a massive effort from us," new South Africa captain Dean Elgar said at the post-match presentation. "I had asked the guys to score big hundreds and to take five wickets and we had three of those accolades in this match. "We bowled brilliantly and it was great to see our batting unit pass 300 as we have been struggling of late." The result will provide plenty of food for thought for the hosts ahead of the second and final test that starts at the same venue on Friday. "They are quality bowlers, but we didn't bat as well as we could have," West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite said. "Second test we just have to bat better, it's as simple as that." "I thought as a bowling group we did well. Jayden Seales, in his first game, I thought he was magnificent. He's a special talent. But they all put in a great effort." The 19-year-old Seales, playing in his second ever first class match, used his raw pace and accuracy to claim 3-75.

Euro 2020: Eriksen's collapse during Denmark, Finland match reminds us of how fragile life really is
Football|: Dubai: In the end, the result just did not matter. In fact, many felt that the game should not have even resumed. There are more important things in life than football – such as, life itself. And the world almost witnessed the tragic loss of one, but for the incredibly quick actions of players and paramedics. Denmark’s Christian Erkisen suffered a heart attack on the pitch and collapsed, and if we’re being honest and judging by the pictures on TV and reactions from the players and the fans, we all feared the worst. Referee, Anthony Taylor immediately realized the seriousness of the horrific incident and stopped play and signaled for the medics to rush on to the pitch and resuscitate the 29-year-old Inter Milan midfielder. The most frightening moment was seeing them desperately give Eriksen chest compressions in a bid to restart his heart. It was all too much for some on the pitch but the Danish team bravely formed a shield around their stricken talisman and protect him from the eyes of the media and the world watching on. It took an eternity for news to eventually filter in that the former Tottenham player, who had since been stretchered off and rushed to hospital, had regained consciousness and was even talking. It was the news we all prayed we would hear. Tough night Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand said: “It’s been a tough night. We are all reminded of what the most important thing in life is – to have valuable relationships, people we’re close to, our family and our friends. You can’t play a game with such feelings – there were players out there who were emotionally exhausted.” The fact that the match was allowed to resume, having been suspended for 90 minutes, did not feel right at all. Respect ought to have been paid to what we had all witnessed, not least to Eriksen himself, and the match should have been postponed until another day when everyone was ready again. In the end, Denmark’s Schmeichel fumbled at a header from Pohjanpalo and it proved the winner for Finland. The keeper would have normally saved that effort with his eyes shut while Hjolberg saw his tame penalty saved. Clearly, both these players and others did not have their minds on the game and as a result the Danes lost their opener but again, the result just did not matter anymore. Our hopes and prayers are with Eriksen and his family and we all wish he makes a full and speedy recovery.
