Real Madrid seem to have reignited their interest in this Arsenal forward: Bad news
Real Madrid have reportedly been offered the services of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang during the summer transfer window but it seems they are not interested.
Aubameyang has been heavily linked with a move out of Arsenal this summer with clubs like Barcelona and Man United interested in signing him.

And while the Gunners effectively do not want to lose him but right now they are nowhere close to agreeing on a new deal primarily due to the huge wage demands of the player.

This would mean that Arsenal are open to selling off their star player in the summer and it looks like his services have been offered to Real Madrid which will surely have come as a huge blow to both Manchester United as well as Barcelona.

The Gabon international has been a stellar performer for Arsenal ever since joining the club in January of 2018 from Borussia Dortmund and since this season he has already netted 17 goals in just 26 games for the North London club.

As per reports, Real Madrid are not interested in signing Aubameyang since the Los Blancos want to make a move for Spurs forward Harry Kane.

Madrid have been after Kane's services for a really long time and now that Pochettino has left the club, Madrid feel they have a great chance of signing the England captain.

Also, Aubameyang is currently 30 years old and in June he will be 31 and the last thing the La Liga side would want to do is to spend money on a player who is in the twilight of his career.

On the other hand, Harry Kane is just 26 years old - the perfect age to be the long-term replacement for Karim Benzema.

It is still unclear if Madrid have rejected the chance to sign Aubameyang but if Harry Kane is truly available in the market then there's very little chance that Florentino Perez will even think about making a move for the Arsenal star.

While Madrid still are prioritising the signing of Harry Kane during the summer but Florentino Perez knows this for a fact that Daniel Levy will not let Harry Kane leave so easily.

And this is why the Los Blancos are now looking at Aubameyang as an alternative to Harry Kane.

As per reports, if Real Madrid cannot get their hands on Kane then they will make a move for Aubameyang and are planning to use Dani Ceballos as part of the deal.

Ceballos is currently on loan at Arsenal and there's a chance that the Gunners could keep him permanently and if this happens then getting their hands on the Gabon international will be really easy for Real Madrid.

But all of this will only happen once Madrid are confirmed that they will not be able to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur.



Aim Is to Play Like the No. 1 Test Team in the World: Ravi Shastri  Head coach Ravi Shastri
sounds affirmative when he says that India will not hold back come the two-Test series against New Zealand
and are eager to play like the 'No. 1 Test team in the world' in a bid to book a place in the final of the World Test Championship at Lord's in 2021.
India are currently leading the WTC rankings with 360 points having all their seven matches so far.
With six overseas Tests this year, India are seeking another 100 points which promises to assure them of a place at the home of cricket in the final.


Yashasvi Jaiswal: World Cup semi-final, Pakistan, unbeaten hundred
late night conversations that the young centurion Yashasvi Jaiswal often had with his local coach Jwala Singh,
Jawal sing is coach of the Yashasvi jaiswal
the boy would pick his brains on what he needed to do differently and if he saw any technical flaws in his batting.
He is playing  flaws of differently  batting technical player
Singh always offered diplomatically: 'Just enjoy your game.'
But deep down, Jwala wasn't too happy. Yashasvi was getting starts but not converting those into big runs.
Yashivi was a big score of the match jwala was happy
He had made it to the India U19 team on the back of a double hundred for Mumbai seniors in a List A tournament
But in the ongoing World Cup, twice in four innings he walked back after getting those familiar starts while two other times he remained unbeaten

Jwala insisted the world hadn't seen Yashasvi's real game yet.

On Tuesday, against Pakistan, Yashasvi batted with composure to make an unbeaten 105 off 113 balls.
His opening partner Divyaansh Saxena (59 not out off 99) was solid at the other end. The opening stand was worth 176 and India won by 10 wickets in 43.1 overs.
Jaiswal also made a crucial breakthrough with the ball when he dismissed Pakistan opener Haider Ali to break the third wicket partnership.

For a student who maintained a high standard for himself, a big hundred was needed to please his coach.
When it comes against arch-rivals Pakistan in a knock-out match of a World Cup, it becomes even more special.
'He Yashasvi got selected for the India U 19 World Cup and asked me if I was happy.
I said you are playing for India U 19s for the past one year now, so there is no reason to get excited. Just be calm.
U 19 WC comes every two years and in those two years we see new talent come and go,' Jwala said.

The seasoned coach has seen stars being made and broken from close quarters.
In fact, he too had been a promising bowler who went to the MRF pace foundation in Chennai, but never reached the heights he aspired to.


In those conversations following the batting drills, Yashasvi always received a heavy dose of wisdom by the end of the day where Jwala threw some hard realities of life at him. Having come up the hard way,
Yashasvi too understood the importance of long-term goals.
It's here that Jwala saw merit in introducing Yashasvi to former India opener Wasim Jaffer, the marathon man of domestic cricket.
Jaffer too advised Yashasvi that the key to bigger innings was to stay at the crease for long periods.
'I told him exactly how many players went on to play for India and within that how many players lasted for 10 years. I told him those will be few in number.
Playing for India for one or two matches has no meaning. He should be there for the long run,' Jaffer recalls.


Rohit Sharma's last-ball six in Super Over gives India first T20I series win in New Zealand
India defeated New Zealand in the third T20 International via Super Over to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series on Wednesday.
Toss: New Zealand won a third straight toss, but opted to field this time around. The hosts made one change with Scott Kuggeleijn coming in for Blair Tickner. India remained unchanged.
First Innings: Rohit Sharma scored 65 runs off 40 balls as India posted 179/5.
Rohit's blitz included six fours and three sixes as he put on 89 runs for the first wicket with KL Rahul (27 off 19 balls).

However, Rahul fell to Colin de Grandhomme (1/13) after which Shivam Dube (3) who was promoted to number three was out after facing a laborious seven deliveries, which also sucked the momentum out of the Indian innings
. The pressure told at the other end as Rohit was dismissed off Bennett as well. India lost three wickets for seven runs in the space of three overs.

Skipper Virat Kohli (38 off 27 balls) and Shreyas Iyer (17 off 16 balls) tried to resurrect the innings with a 46-run partnership for the fourth wicket.
Iyer's dismissal was the turning point, stumped off Mitchell Santner (1/37) in the 17th over. Two overs later, Kohli was caught at extra cover.

Manish Pandey (14 not out) and Ravindra Jadeja (10 not out) pushed the score past 170 but India fell short of a 200-score the openers had set up.

2nd Innings: Chasing 180, the Kiwis got off to blistering start with openers Colin Munro and Martin Guptill going all guns blazing from the onset. Guptill made his intentions with a six of Shardul Thakur in the first over itself. However, it was Thakur who had the last laugh when he got rid of Guptill (31 off 24 balls) with an innocuous delivery in the last over of the powerplay.
Munro followed suit when Ravindra Jadeja had him stumped (14 off 16 balls) in the very next over.

Like India's move to send Shivam Dube up the order fell flat, the Kiwis decision to send Mitchell Santner also failed to reap any rewards as he was gone for just 9 off 11 balls. But from thereon skipper Kane Williamson took charge and scored a 48-ball 95. It was his knock which took New Zealand to the brink of victory but a brilliant last over by Mohammad Shami took the match into the Super Over.

In the Super Over, New Zealand scored 17, a target which India overwhelmed in the final ball with Rohit smashing Tim Southee for two consecutive sixes.
