The match may have been insignificant, but Dhoni disagrees. Speaking to this website´┐Żs newspaper the stumper said: "Well, these two knocks are quite important for me. That's because my focus right now is on the tri-series in Sri Lanka.''

Kapil Dev's fondness for Ajay Jadeja is no secret; the former all-rounder has run a tireless campaign for his protege's rehabilitation. Here, he waxes eloquent on Jadeja's golfing skills.
And finally, bookie Shobhan Mehta is arrested in Bombay, he falls ill, he is admitted to hospital, he is discharged, he has now been arrested in Ahmedabad. That's the news -- follow the link only if you are a fan of four-para stories being split into five pages, in ToI's patented fashion.
