    India have appointed former captain and leg spinner Anil Kumble as their new head coach on a one-year deal.
    Kumble, 45, has no international or first-class coaching experience but is India's leading Test wicket taker with 619 wickets in 132 games.
    India have been without a head coach since Duncan Fletcher left the role after the 2015 World Cup.
    Former team director Ravi Shastri has overseen India's recent World Twenty20 and Asia Cup campaigns.

    Cricket South Africa has confirmed a decision to introduce targets for all national teams for selection of players of colour. The specifics of the new policy, which will stipulate how many players of colour need to be included in starting XIs, have yet to be revealed, but are likely to fall in line with the requirements of the South African sports ministry, with whom CSA have signed a memorandum of understanding

    Australia's penultimate pair, Peter Nevill and Steve O'Keefe, batted together for 178 balls for just four runs, a boundary scored by O'Keefe, whose hamstring injury prevented him from running. That included a record-breaking 154 balls without a run
