    Swimming

    Elizabeth Simmonds

  6. 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.

  7. Team News

    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.

    Everton captain Phil Jagielka will miss the game because of a hamstring injury and is a doubt for the FA Cup semi-final on 23 April.

    Tom Cleverley will be assessed after suffering a minor injury at the weekend, but Ross Barkley is fit.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. A legend bows out

    Basketball

    Later on Wednesday marks the last game in an LA Lakers shirt for Kobe Bryant. After 48,576 minutes on court, over 20 NBA seasons, Bryant will have his last hurrah against Utah Jazz.

    Kobe Bryant

    To mark the occasion, a chap called Kendrick Lamar "has voiced words by the writer Scoop Jackson over his Untitled 07 track from his latest album Untitled Unmastered". 

    I don't understand any of that sentence but if you do, good luck to you...

    Weightlifting

    Jack Oliver

    British weightlifter Jack Oliver is out of European weightlifting championships in Norway due to a suspected dislocated elbow.

    The 25-year-old was hurt attempting to lift 178kg in Wednesday's 77kg event.

    Oliver is the British record holder but now faces and anxious wait to see if the injury is serious enough to rule him out of the Olympics.

  12. 'Windbags united'

    Formula 1

    It's all about the food today... the Formula 1 drivers appear to have gathered for some dinner in Shanghai before this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix.

    World championship leader Nico Rosberg also had a playful dig at the sport's boss Bernie Ecclestone who recently described them as "windbags" for complaining about how F1 is run.

  13. Guess the score...

    Crystal Palace v Everton (20:00 BST)

    It's the highest in the Premier League.

    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.
