England crush India


England's bowlers destroyed India's batting order once again, dismissing the tourists for only 94 runs to seal a 3-1 series victory on day three of the fifth Test at the Oval yesterday. Chris Jordan (4-18) spearheaded England's bowling attack as the hosts thrashed India by an innings and 244 runs - the tourists' third heaviest Test defeat ever. India have now lost both their last two Tests within three days and by an innings defeat each time.

SCORES: India 148 (Mahendra Singh Dhoni 82; Chris Woakes 3-30, Chris Jordan 3-32) and 94 (Stuart Binny not out 25; Chris Jordan 4-18) lost to England 486 (Joe Root not out 149, Alastair Cook 79; Ishant Sharma 4-96) by an innings and 244 runs.

Jones, Lisbie score


Trinidadian striker Kenwyne Jones continued his bright start to the new English Championship season, scoring twice to help recently demoted Cardiff City beat Huddersfield Town on Saturday. The 29-year-old struck twice in either half as the Welsh side came away with a 3-1 win at home at the Cardiff City Stadium, to extend their unbeaten record in the campaign.

Cardiff opened with a 1-1 draw away to Blackburn Rovers last week, with Jones scoring his first goal of the season, and they followed up by beating Coventry City 2-1 in the Capital One Cup at midweek.

In League One, former Reggae Boy Kevin Lisbie picked up where he left off last season, finding the net for Leyton Orient as they won 3-1 at Oldham.

T&T's Molino equals record

ORLANDO, Florida (CMC):

Kevin Molino equalled the United Soccer League's PRO single-season scoring record to help Orlando City SC clinch a 3-1 victory over the Harrisburg City Islanders on Saturday. Before a sold-out crowd at the ESPN Wide World of Sports, the Trinidad & Tobago midfielder scored in between a brace from teammate Darwin Ceren as City clinched a home game in the opening round of the USL PRO playoffs.

Molino's strike for the Lions tied the USL PRO single-season scoring record with his 15th goal of the season.

Regional jockeys star

Saskatchewan (CMC):

Oral Bennett and Fazal Razack both logged doubles, remaining firmly rooted in the top-10 and Caribbean-born jockeys collected half-dozen wins on Saturday's race card at Marquis Downs. Razack, a veteran T&T-born jockey, holds down third place in the standings with 18 wins and Jamaica Bennett is sixth on 11 wins with just three weekends of racing remaining in the season at the western Canadian track.

Neville Stephenson, another Jamaica-born jockey, opened the day's racing with a one-length victory on the 7-4 favourite Oneforthecrew going 1,400 metres.
