England fall short to Pakistan

England fall short to Pakistan England fell to a tight 14-run defeat to Pakistan in a tense World Cup encounter at Trent Bridge, despite centuries from Joe Root and Jos Buttler. Requiring the highest-ever chase in a World Cup of 349 for victory, Root (107) and Buttler (103) shared an important 130-run fifth-wicket partnership but the pair both fell soon after reaching three figures as Pakistan's frontline seamers Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir produced a fine spell of death bowling to strangle the middle and lower order.

India opens with win, extends South Africa's World Cup woes

India opens with win, extends South Africa's World Cup woes An opening victory for India has South Africa's Cricket World Cup campaign teetering on the edge. Rohit Sharma made the most of an early reprieve to post an unbeaten 122 and guide India to a six-wicket win over an injury-depleted South Africa when tight bowling dominated a low-scoring group game at the Rose Bowl. Sharma's let off came in the second over - Kagiso Rabada's first - when he fended at a short ball which brushed his glove and carried to second slip, but South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis wasn't able to grab it.

'More exposure' for women's game: New Zealand 'keeper Nayler has World Cup goal

'More exposure' for women's game: New Zealand 'keeper Nayler has World Cup goal New Zealand goalkeeper Erin Nayler is hopeful that the Ferns can do enough at the World Cup in France to help the women's game grow in a country where rugby dominates and football often struggles for media attention. "It's a difficult one because rugby is so popular in New Zealand and everyone follows that, but for the youth, women's football is the biggest sport," Nayler tells AFP. "I think over the next few years it will grow and I think with this World Cup, hopefully it will get some more exposure and continue to grow and maybe be one of the biggest sports in New Zealand.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars edged lower on Wednesday in very quiet trade as the Sino-U.S. trade dispute showed every sign of dragging on, and domestic economic news generally disappointed.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he was holding up a trade deal with China and had no interest in moving ahead unless Beijing agrees to four or five "major points" which he did not specify.

The Aussie slipped a shade to $0.6948 and away from Monday's peak at $0.7025. Support is just below at $0.6940/45.

The kiwi dollar drifted off to $0.6571, leaving behind the recent five-week top of $0.6681 and threatening chart support around $0.6560.

The Aussie found a little support from a fresh jump in prices for iron ore, the country's biggest export earner. A mix of tightening supplies and robust Chinese demand lifted Dalian iron ore futures to record highs.

The September contract at 778.5 yuan was equal to a lucrative A$162 a tonne for Aussie miners.

The news at home was not so promising with Westpac's measure of consumer confidence easing 0.6% in June amid concerns about the economic outlook.

The lack of response to the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) cut in interest rates last week just reinforced excitations of further easing and futures imply an 88% chance of a move by August.

Australian government bond futures inched higher, with the three-year bond contract up half a tick at 98.945. The 10-year contract firmed 1 tick to 98.5450.

In New Zealand, data on electronic retail card spending surprised by showing a 0.5% drop in May, led by softness in durable goods. The data covers about 68% of core retail sales.

"Spending on durables has been trending sideways since late 2018," said Satish Ranchhod, a senior economist at Westpac. "This likely reflects the softening in the housing market over the past year."

"With lingering softness in the housing market to date, we expect to see only moderate growth in retail spending over the coming months."
