Topley out for Sri Lanka test

Cricket

More Cricket news and England left-arm seamer Reece Topley has been ruled out for six to eight weeks by the fractured right hand he sustained making his debut in bat for Hampshire on Sunday. 

The blow rules Topley out of at least the start of England's Test series with Sri Lanka, although he was unlikely to have made his Test debut in the rubber. He should recover in time for the limited-overs internationals against Sri Lanka, beginning in late June.

Crystal Palace v Everton (20:00 BST)

Crystal Palace forward Emmanuel Adebayor has returned to fitness and is in the squad to face Everton in Wednesday's re-arranged fixture.

James McArthur is back in training but will not be considered for this match.

IPL to reschedule games

Cricket

The Bombay High Court has ordered the Indian Premier League to shift 13 games from the drought-hit state of Maharashtra to ease the water crisis there. 

It has followed a public interest litigation filed by a non-profit group which contended that a lot of water would be wasted in watering the pitches. 

The court ordered games scheduled from April 30 in the cities of Mumbai, Pune, and Nagpur to be shifted out, including the final which is scheduled for Mumbai on May 29.

Team news

West Ham v Manchester United (19:00 BST)

West Ham will be without Diafra Sakho for Wednesday's FA Cup quarter-final replay against Manchester United.

Hammers manager Slaven Bilic insists a knee injury - rather than a rift - will keep the forward out for a week.

Wayne Rooney returned after two months out with a knee injury for Manchester United's Under-21 side on Monday and could be involved at Upton Park.

Phil Jones will also be assessed along with Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who was injured in Sunday's loss at Tottenham.

As mentioned at 16:05, it's the first time since August that Novak Djokovic has been knocked out of a tournament before a final since being beaten by Ivo Karlovic in the Doha quarter-final in the first event of 2015.    

Earlier this year Djokovic was forced to retire from his Dubai Tennis Championships quarter-final against Feliciano Lopez due to an eye problem.

Boxing

Seconds out... Tyson Fury has been verbal sparring again towards Anthony Joshua, this time calling him a  "pumped up weightlifter" at a media event. Just over a week ago Fury sparked an exchanged of words after calling the new IBF heavyweight champion "useless".

Fury called out Joshua immediately after the victory, labelling him "slow" and "ponderous" on Twitter, and he continued his war of words with the London 2012 gold medallist on Wednesday.  

He also warned Wladimir Klitschko of "another hiding" in their re-match this summer.

Benfica will be without striker Jonas as they try to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of a Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich.

The Brazilian, who has scored 32 goals this season, is suspended, while midfielder Nicolas Gaitan is doubtful with a muscular problem.

Bayern winger Kingsley Coman missed the weekend win at Stuttgart but should be fit after a slight knock. Winger Arjen Robben and defender Jerome Boateng remain sidelined.

Lionel Messi has gone 362 minutes without scoring for Barcelona - his worst run in five years. Can he end that against Atletico later on Wednesday?

The Catalan club lead 2-1 from the first leg of their Champions League last-eight tie but have taken just one point from their last three La Liga games.

"Our mindset remains the same," said Messi, who is one goal away from 500 for club and country. "We work hard all year to have a chance of winning trophies."

Britain's super heavyweight, Joe Joyce, is the latest boxer into the semi-finals at the European Olympic qualifying event in Turkey. The number one seed defeated Denmark's Kem Larsen on points.

If Joyce wins his next bout on Friday he will guarantee super heavyweight representation at the Rio Olympics for Team GB.

Meanwhile, Josh Buatsi has beaten the German second seed by a unanimous points decision to progress to the light heavyweight semi-finals.

In Wednesday's evening session (from 17:00 BST) six more GB fighters will aim to make it to the last four.

Liverpool news conference

Liverpool v Borussia Dortmund (Thu 20:05 BST)

One final word from the manager focuses on his role which, according to him, is not as important as we may think...

"My role isn't so important. My aim is to focus on the game and I am sure Dortmund will do the same. It is not important what I say here, it will not have influence on the game.

"Being brave is one of most important things in football, We have enough quality to get through to semi-finals."

And what sort of game does Klopp expect come tomorrow?

"We certainly won't be flying a white flag. Dortmund can play better but so can we. They have been consistently at the top of the Bundesliga all season. You have to look at the type of football they play and it is very good. There is no reason to expect that to change. 

"We know each other better and how we work. Together we have developed a belief on the pitch and we're in better position than six months ago."

Talking team news ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp says both sides had rested team members due to the intensity last week when his side played out a 1-1 draw in Germany. 

"I have no idea what it is like for Dortmund but we have a great chance. We are in a position where we are looking to go further. I wasn't surprised that Dortmund rested players over the weekend, we only did the same because of last weeks tie against them."  

Liverpool news conference

Liverpool v Borussia Dortmund (Thu 20:05 BST)

The German received a fantastic welcome on his return back to Dortmund last Thursday, but the Liverpool manager used the press conference to focus upon the Merseyside supporters.  

"We've had wonderful atmospheres in the Europa League. We had jump over the level against Manchester United. The crowd is more of an advantage if we are better than the away goal in Dortmund. We can ignore the last game. This is a new start."

"We're not thinking about penalties. We're focused on scoring goals and winning the game. We've scored an away goal and that's important. Let's hope we score at Anfield and don't give chances away."
