Australia have broken the record for most consecutive wins in women’s ODI cricket with their 18th triumph on the trot. The Aussies surpassed their own record of most consecutive wins, a feat they attained 20 years ago with 17 wins. Australia broke the record when they defeated Sri Lanka by nine wickets on Wednesday. Chasing a target of 196, Australia got off to a flyer as the team registered 159 runs for the first wicket.

Shanghai cancels NBA fan event

Shanghai has cancelled a fan event related to a planned NBA exhibition game in the city over “inappropriate” comments by a Houston Rockets executive in support of protests in Hong Kong. The event was scheduled for Wednesday night, the eve of a scheduled game between the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers. But it was cancelled due to the “inappropriate comments made by the NBA’s Houston Rockets General Manager (Daryl) Morey and the inappropriate statement of NBA Commissioner (Adam) Silver,” a statement by the city’s sports federation said.
