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.

David warner wife candice warner interview australia cricket ball tampering cricket australia steve smith cameron bancroft.

Both Warner and former captain Steve Smith were given 12-month bans by Cricket Australia following their roles in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.

"I was always coming back to international cricket if selected," Warner told reporters after stumps in his first major press conference since his suspension expired.

"The thing that kept me going was my wife and kids.

"My wife is just, she's just my rock. She's unbelievable. She's determined, disciplined, selfless," the 32-year-old left-hander added.

"She's a strong woman. And she got me out of bed a lot in those sort of first sort of 12 weeks, and got me back running and training hard as I could... She really nailed that into me."

Candice Warner, who is pregnant with the couple's third child, is now in England.

Australia has returned to winning ways at the Cricket World Cup , narrowly beating a spirited Pakistan by 41 runs in Taunton. An emotional David Warner scored his first century back in the Australian line-up as Australia posted a solid, if slightly underwhelming "My wife is just, she' s just my rock .

The moment Candice Warner snapped: WAG reveals she spoke out her 'toilet tryst' with Sonny Bill Williams on SAS Australia because she'd had enough of the vile sledging at her husband David' s cricket games.

Australia, whose next match is against Sri Lanka at the Oval on Saturday, now have an official period of 'family time' starting Thursday when players can see their wives and families.

"We're fortunate enough to have our families away with us which is great and obviously we're going to be here for a while in the UK," said Warner, set for a long stay given Australia remain in England for an Ashes series after the World Cup.

While Smith and Cameron Bancroft, who received a nine-month ban for applying sandpaper to the ball during a Test at Cape Town, gave interviews during their suspensions, Warner maintained his silence following an emotional press conference at Sydney Airport after he was sent home from the tour.

"I didn't need to say anything," explained Warner, reported to be the instigator of the ball-tampering incident.

"What was said was said back in those press conferences. And now it's about looking forward."

'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.

David Warner had feared not scoring a hundred in international cricket following his ball-tampering ban but the Australian opener Warner revealed his innings, which proved the foundation of Australia ' s 41-run win on Wednesday, filled him The thing that kept me going was my wife and two young kids.

After weeks of speculation, it's been announced David Warner 's pregnant wife Candice will be The World Cup 's leading run-scorer will stay in London for the birth before heading to Manchester ahead Australia ' s coach Justin Langer said last week he was well across the situation and planning around it.

- 'Awesome' -

Warner's century was also his third fifty in four innings this World Cup after scores of 89 not out against Afghanistan and an uncharacteristically slow 56 off 84 balls in a defeat by India last time out.

"Personally, it's a great thing," said Warner of his hundred. "It was a long time coming. Against Afghanistan I felt like I had no rhythm.

"And still last game they (India) bowled really straight to me. But to come out here, play the way I know I can play was awesome," explained Warner, who faced just 111 balls at Taunton.

Warner and Australia captain Aaron Finch (82) shared an opening stand of 146 -- the highest partnership for any wicket of this World Cup so far.

But they had to see off a testing opening spell from Pakistan left-arm quick Mohammad Amir, who finished with career-best figures of 5-30.

"He's a world-class bowler," said Warner. "When he's swinging it, it's very difficult to try to get on top of him. I tried my best to see him off but still try and rotate the strike."

Pakistan fans in Taunton largely heeded a pre-match plea from captain Sarfaraz Ahmed not to boo Smith and Warner -- indeed many of them cheered and clapped Warner after he was out.

The Rock deletes photo of daughter swimming with no bathing suit on after criticism from followers: 'They made bathing suits for a reason'

The Rock deletes photo of daughter swimming with no bathing suit on after criticism from followers: 'They made bathing suits for a reason' The post in question was a photo of his three-year-old daughter Jasmine, perched on the side of a pool with no bathing suit on, about to jump into the waiting arms of her 47-year-old movie star father. Following a barrage of negative comments from fans, the Hobbs & Shaw star deleted the picture on Monday morning. At the time of deletion, more than 2.9million people had liked the picture on Instagram. However, not all were supportive, with one commenter writing, 'I love the Rock but this pic isn’t necessary for social media. They made bathing suits for a reason.

There has been something curious about David Warner during this World Cup . The swagger has been replaced by the straitjacket. In lieu of his customary strut at the start of the innings, Warner has begun with ostentatious care that has less resembled the Warner of old than an Alastair Cook ODI tribute act.

Celebrities suffer sickening sewerage incident on SAS Australia as they empty the communal toilet waste by hand.

This was in marked contrast to the crowd taunts that had come Warner's way in previous World Cup games, with further jeers expected during the Ashes.

"The boos, we don't really hear that when we're out there... It's water off a duck's back," Warner insisted. "I've heard it my whole career.

"Actually it eggs us on a lot and makes us knuckle down and try to score more runs if anything."
