Cricket - Root calls for positive approach

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

England batsman Joe Root says he and his colleague must be aggressive with the bat if they are to keep the Test series in India alive. The tourists trail 2-0 with two games to play, meaning that they must win the fourth Test in Mumbai, which gets under way on Thursday, to have any hope of levelling the series in Chennai.And Root, who is 11/4 with bet365 to be top England first innings batsman in Mumbai, believes a more positive approach at the crease is needed to upset the home attack.He told reporters: "On turning wickets, when there is a little bit in them, you can't just sit in and survive and expect to grind out a big score."Sometimes you've got to be a bit more pro-active and take the initiative. Looking ahead, hopefully that is the way we're going to go about it in the next two games."England will hand a Test debut to opening batsman Keaton Jennings in the fourth Test, with the Durham left-hander replacing Haseeb Hameed, whose series was ended prematurely by a hand injury.

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Boss Arsene Wenger, expects Arsenal, 20/1 with bet365 to win the Champions League, to face a stern test of their mettle in the first knockout round of the competition. The Gunners secured top spot in Group A by powering to a 4-1 win over FC Basel in Switzerland, while Paris St Germain could only manage a 2-2 draw at home to Ludogorets Razgrad.However, Wenger is not getting too carried away, with possible opponents in the last-16 including Bayern Munich, Juventus, or even holders Real Madrid.A cautious Wenger said after a resounding win in Basel: "We can still have a difficult draw. Any way it will be difficult, but with less guilt when you finish first."You feel you've done the job and can play the second leg at home. So we have achieved that, but the draw is not much different (in terms of the potential opponent), certainly at the moment." Go Back to Top
