    India's Supreme Court has ordered the country's cricket board chief to resign for failing to implement reforms.
    The court on Monday told Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Anurag Thakur to quit.
    It had recommended sweeping changes in the BCCI following allegations of spot-fixing and betting in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament

    David Warner became only the 5th Batsmen to score a century before lunch on the first day of a Test. Warner became the latest to join Victor Trumper, Charles Macartney, Don Bradman and Majid Khan to achieve this feat. The last such instance was more than 40 years ago when Majid did it against New Zealand in Karachi in October 1976. The first three were all before World War II.

    The wicketkeeper will, however, remain available for selection for the three-match series and the three subsequent Twenty20 internationals

    AB de Villiers has made himself unavailable for selection for the upcoming Test series in New Zealand in March though he has recovered from his elbow injury, but said that he was not retiring from Test cricket.
    However, while squashing recent speculation that he was going to give up the longest format, AB de Villiers indicated that his priority was going to be limited-overs cricket in order to play the 2019 World Cup.
