How's your touch?


A Bangladeshi cricket team conceded 92 runs in the space of four balls to deliberately lose a match in a protest over umpiring.

Lalmatia Club were dismissed for 88 in 14 overs on Tuesday before bowler Sujon Mahmud sent down just four legitimate deliveries, despite bowling 32 balls.

Three deliveries were no-balls and 13 were wides - all of which raced to the boundary, costing his side 80 runs.

The four legal deliveries were hit for 12 runs by Axiom opener Mustafizur Rahman - not the Bangladesh Test bowler of the same name - as they completed a 10-wicket win in 0.4 overs.

Four EFL clubs 'at risk of failure'

Four English Football League clubs are in danger of going out of business, says a study by financial experts.

According to the report by financial services firm Begbies Traynor, three unnamed clubs in League One and one in League Two are in "financial distress".

Despite rising from two last season, the overall number of these clubs is down from the high of 13 in the 2011-12 campaign, when the survey began.

In Scotland, only one club was found to be "financially distressed".

It’s understood Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been left out of the squad for tomorrow’s Europa League quarter final first leg away at Anderlecht, and has not travelled to Belgium. 

The England striker trained with his team-mates this morning at the club’s Carrington training ground, but has missed United’s last two games due to pain in both ankles.

GLT for Championship play-offs

A fan of goal-line technology? Well, it's going to be used in this season's Championship play-off finals...

Originally scheduled for ratification at June’s AGM, proposals were brought forward to provide sufficient time to install the required technical infrastructure, ahead of the start of the next league campaign. 

GLT will assist referees and their assistants in making crucial decisions where there is doubt as to whether or not the ball has crossed the line. It has been operational at Premier League grounds since the 2013-14 season as well as in selected League Cup ties and at all play-off finals held at Wembley Stadium. 

EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said: “The introduction of Goal-line Technology is a significant step forward for Championship clubs and reflects the importance of the outcome of every single game in the division.”

Little is in a stable condition in hospital after an "accidental clash of heads" at training on Tuesday evening.

Club chairman Stuart Brown faces a "long journey to recovery". 

"Whilst this was a serious and scary incident, and Andy’s injuries are substantial, he is now comfortable and stable in hospital and out of danger," he added.

A long range effort

A football club which lost a ball in Aberdeen has discovered it washed up more than 1,000 miles away off the far north of Norway.

The under 19s team ball went over a fence at Banks o' Dee FC's ground into the River Dee.

It is thought the ball was swept into the North Sea and drifted around the coast of Norway to the island of Vanna.

The club was emailed to say the ball with its name on the side had been found.

Real are better than 2014 - Zidane

Bayern Munich v Real Madrid (19:45 BST)

La Liga leaders Real Madrid won their 11th European title in May, at the end of Zinedine Zidane's first full campaign in charge.

Zidane had previously worked under Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti as Real assistant, and this is the first time they will meet as opposing managers.

The Spanish side are without injured defenders Pepe and Raphael Varane, but their front three - Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale - are all fit.

"We know each other very well, but that doesn't mean anything: it's not an advantage or a disadvantage. It's two good teams coming up against each other and that's all there is to it," Zidane said.

"We're not lining up against Carlo. What happened three years ago happened and it was wonderful. But this is a completely different game.

"I think our team is better now than in 2014 - but we need to prove it."

Lewandowski a doubt for Bayern

Bayern Munich v Real Madrid (19:45 BST)

Bayern Munich could be without striker Robert Lewandowski for their Champions League quarter-final first leg at home to Real Madrid tonight.

Lewandowski, who has scored 38 goals in 40 appearances this season, is a doubt after injuring his shoulder on Sunday.

However, Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti, who led Real to their 10th European Cup title in 2014, says the Bundesliga side "can still be strong without him".

"If he is in pain he won't play, but it won't change our strategy," he said.

"We will decide whether Lewandowski can play on Wednesday. We know how important he is, but it won't change our self-confidence."

Ancelotti expects goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to return after a foot injury, but defender Mats Hummels is out after damaging ankle ligaments during Bayern's 4-1 defeat of Borussia Dortmund.

From Madrid, to Munich...

How do Leicester stop Atletico?

Atletico Madrid v Leicester (19:45 BST)

It has regularly been suggested that Leicester have focused on the Champions League at the expense of their Premier League campaign, but they will be hard pushed to match the motivation of an Atletico team who have more reason than anyone to chase success on the European stage.

Losing two finals in three years was extremely hard for Atletico to take, especially as both were against bitter rivals Real Madrid and could have very easily yielded a different outcome: the 2014 final was decided in extra time after Real equalised deep in stoppage time, and last season's went to a penalty shootout.

Manager Diego Simeone came close to leaving the club after the agony of last year's loss, admitting he did not know whether he would be able to muster the energy and passion to recover from such soul-destroying disappointment.

But, after a summer he has since described as "mourning", he elected to stay, and the Argentine is looking more intense than ever in his fierce pursuit of the only trophy he has not won since rejoining a club he had previously played for.

So how do Leicester stop them? Read Andy West's full piece here.
