The Sports Matrix: Tuesday 8 November 2011

West Indies force India to collapse

West Indies tore through India on the second afternoon of the first Test in Delhi yesterday, bowling the hosts out for just 209, as captain Darren Sammy took three wickets. West Indies finished the day 116 runs ahead with eight second-innings wickets left. MORE

Pakistan hold out for series victory

England's next opponents, Pakistan, completed a 1-0 series win over Sri Lanka yesterday, drawing the third and final Test in Sharjah. Pakistan were set 255 to win from 61 overs but batted cautiously to finish on 87 for 4 before bad light ended the match. MORE

Barça stars may not play for Spain

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque is under pressure to rest his Barcelona and Real Madrid players for Saturday's friendly at Wembley. Barça have a King's Cup fixture tomorrow in which Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Carles Puyol et al are all likely to play. MORE

Yafai and Selby to fight for 2012 spot

Khalid Yafai and Andrew Selby, two strong medal prospects, will begin a best-of-three series at York Hall in east London on Friday to decide who fills the flyweight position for Team GB at next summer's Olympic Games. MORE

Touré hopes City can go unbeaten

Yaya Touré yesterday refused to rule out the possibility of Manchester City matching Arsenal's 2003-04 unbeaten season. "It will be very difficult, but we hope we can continue [unbeaten]," he said. "We have tough, tough games in the next couple of weeks."

O'Driscoll will miss all of Six Nations

Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll will miss the Six Nations and will be out of action for up to six months after surgery on a trapped nerve in his shoulder. The 32-year-old Leinster player is the record try-scorer for Ireland and in the Five/Six Nations. MORE

Suarez: I did not racially insult Evra

Liverpool's Luis Suarez has spoken publicly about the racism allegations made against him by Manchester United's Patrice Evra for the first time: "There is no evidence I said anything racist to him. I said nothing of the sort. I did not insult him." MORE

Williams 'stunned' by reaction to slur

Steve Williams, the ex-caddie of Tiger Woods who racially insulted the former world No 1 last night is "stunned" by the reaction to his remarks, says The Sydney Morning Herald. "Blown out of all proportion might sum up his reaction," a report in the paper said. MORE

Opinion: James Lawton

Given the real possibility of an embarrassing defeat to Spain on Friday, a review of English football is needed. No one in England is playing remotely as well as David Silva, who cannot crack the Spain line-up. MORE

Jagielka injury may force Terry to face Spain

Fabio Capello may have to pick John Terry, his captain who faces allegations of racism, against Spain after it emerged Phil Jagielka will have to pull out of the England squad tomorrow. The Everton defender has a hairline fracture to a toe which has required pain-killing injections, and will probably report for duty, be examined by the medical staff and sent home. Jagielka's absence leaves Capello with four fit centre-backs, including John Terry and Phil Jones, whom he had hoped to field elsewhere. This may jeopardise Capello's plan to rest Terry against Spain and only play him against Sweden. Although the decision was made "for football reasons" unrelated to the racism allegations Terry faces, it would have taken him out of the spotlight. England will be based in the Polish city of Krakow for next summer's European Championship. The Football Association is keen for England to "embrace and engage with" local culture and history; a stark change from the isolated South African base for the 2012 World Cup. MORE

Murray ready to hit heights in Paris

Andy Murray believes that he is in good shape for the Paris Masters, which comes at the end of a gruelling season. "I wanted to make sure that I made the most of the last few months [of the season]," said the new world No 3. "Now I actually feel good." MORE
