|Australia routs India, seals series victory |
|PERTH AUSTRALIA routed India by an innings and 37 runs inside three days on Sunday to seal a crushing 3-0 series victory against the hapless tourists.
Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni were out before lunch at the WACA Ground in Perth and Australia cleaned up the tail for 171 soon after the break to complete their third emphatic win.
India, the world one-day champion, has now lost seven straight away Tests after its 4- 0 loss to England last year and this latest heavy defeat is likely to lead to calls back home for a shake-up, especially of the top order.
"In the games in England and here we have not put enough runs on the board," said skipper Dhoni, who later learned he had been suspended for one match by the International Cricket Council for his second slow overrate infraction in 12 months.
"There is only one instance where we have scored over 350 runs and you want to give bowlers those amount of runs so they can look to get the opposition out," he said.
"One or two bad innings can happen in Test cricket, but seven Test matches is a bit long," admitted the captain, who will miss the fourth and final Test in Adelaide starting on Tuesday week.
|Fergie backs Scholes to prove critics wrong |
| MANCHESTER SIR ALEX FERGUSON backed Paul Scholes to prove the critics wrong after the veteran midfielder celebrated his return from retirement with a goal in Manchester United's 3-0 win over Bolton.
Scholes scored an Old Trafford league goal for the first time since netting against Fulham in February 2009 and his first goal of any sort since scoring against the same opponents in London in August 2010.
Starting a game for the first time in eight months, the 37- year-old former England international showed what his side has been missing during a recent run which saw them lose to Blackburn and Newcastle on their last two league outings.
But his 45th minute opening goal on Saturday — the 103rd of his league career — was a well-timed reminder of Scholes' ability after some critics questioned Ferguson's decision to bring him out of retirement.
"He has that instinct for goals that he has had since he was a kid. And he did it again," said Ferguson. "He popped up when he should have been enjoying it, sitting in central midfield controlling things.
"He has been one of the greatest ever United players.
|Nene scores twice as PSG beats Toulouse 3-1 |
| PARIS PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN gave new coach Carlo Ancelotti his first home win by beating Toulouse 3-1 to maintain its lead at the top of the French first division on Saturday.
Nene scored in each half as PSG gradually applied the pressure after making a slow start, and record signing Javier Pastore added the other goal to make it a memorable night for Ancelotti.
Despite a pleasing night for most of the 45,000 fans at Parc des Princes, Ancelotti expected more from his players.
"We have to improve our way of playing, we want to play good football for the whole match," said Ancelotti, who twice won the Champions League with AC Milan as both player and coach. "We had a lot of chances to score more tonight." PSG remains three points clear of Montpellier, which beat Lyon 1-0 thanks to top scorer Olivier Giroud's 14th league goal of the season.
There was pushing and shoving in the tunnel between both teams after the game.
"It was a deserved victory," said Montpellier coach Rene Girard, whose son was involved in a heated verbal exchange with Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez. "I don't have ...
