S Sreesanth heaved a sigh of relief as he claimed that he was grateful for the recent ruling after the Supreme Court revoked the life ban imposed by the BCCI on the former India cricketer. The Apex court has given the BCCI three months to revisit Sreesanth's punishment for his offences. Sreesanth, now aged 36, rose to fame in the home series against England back in 2006 where he claimed 10 wickets at an average of 16.3, including a career best 6/55 in the final match in Indore.

Italy’s indomitable interior minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday he is “proud” to have put an end to illegal immigration in Italy. “You enter Italy by saying ‘May I come in’ and ‘Please,’” Mr. Salvini said in a Tweet to his followers, explaining that by combatting illegal immigration he was also fighting human trafficking and the drug trade.Decrying smugglers and human traffickers, Salvini said he had evidence that “with the money they make—around 3,000 euro for every person they put on the boat—they buy arms and drugs. So stopping the trafficking of human beings does not just mean stopping immigration, but it also means blocking weapon and drug trafficking.” “So as long as you keep saying, ‘it’s the last boatload, it’s the last boatload, it’s the last boatload,’ the smugglers continue doing their dirty and criminal work,” he said in a television interview he … [Read more...] about Matteo Salvini: ‘I Am Proud’ to Have Halted Illegal Immigration
Griffin doesn't want to just be known as that one-handed player by Jared Dubin @jadubin5 58s ago • 2 min read Seattle Seahawks linebacker and special teams ace Shaquem Griffin is a special player. He began his college career as a defensive back and was quite good there, only to make a position switch and become a pass-rushing, full-field-chasing linebacker for his final two seasons at the University of Central Florida, during which he tallied 33.5 tackles for loss and 18.5 sacks.

Arthur Weinstein Updated at 6:48 p.m. ET Updated at 6:48 p.m. ET Watch NFLNFL with fuboTV Before he became one of the NFL's most feared wide receivers, Adam Thielen was a little-used player who totaled only 20 catches his first two seasons. But, Thielen said Friday that the time he spent with former Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater changed his career. Bridgewater spent four years with the Vikings before joining the Saints last offseason. The Vikings host the Saints on Sunday.

An undrafted free agent out of Minnesota State, Thielen posted solid numbers the past two seasons, averaging 80 catches and 1,121 yards. But, he has taken his game to a new level this season, leading … [Read more...] about Adam Thielen praises Teddy Bridgewater: ‘I probably wouldn’t be the receiver I am today without him’
