Cricket is on the verge of making its application for Olympic inclusion6h Cricket is on the verge of making its application for Olympic inclusion
The approval of India is needed before a bid can be put forward but Olympic status would help the sport’s image become more global and less colonialFor all that the Olympic Games has become a byword for corruption and greed, it is challenged by only the football World Cup in terms of global popularity. Inclusion brings exposure to new audiences and opens up cash from national governments and the International Olympic Committee itself. That is why rugby and golf rejoined in Rio last year and the World Squash Federation president was “heartbroken” to learn that squash would not feature in 2020. Cricket has long been unique among major sports in its reticence about joining the Olympic Games: an oddity that speaks of the sport’s conservatism and the historic lack of concern of its largest members for increasing the sport’s global footprint.

It is inherently sensible for the league to try and expand its reach and revenue in a crowded market, but flooding it with an inferior product could be dangerous To hear Roger McGuinn sing it, to everything, turn, turn, turn, there is a season, turn, turn, turn. But with AFLX, the “fast-paced, scaled down version of traditional football” played by teams of seven on a rectangular field, the AFL is not for turning, nor is it for the antiquated notion of seasons. The alternate version of the game – initially slated to fill the gap created by the bye leading into week one of the finals – would likely to be rolled out to colour in those few squares of the calendar yet occupied by the AFL.

Euro 2017 stutters of Germany and France a welcome sign of rising standards | Suzanne Wrack15h Euro 2017 stutters of Germany and France a welcome sign of rising standards | Suzanne Wrack
Two of the favourites have struggled and the greater competitiveness reflects the doubling of investment in women’s football across Europe since 2013Germany, seeking to win the European championship for a seventh time in a row, have surprisingly stuttered into their title defence. In 2013 the start of the story was similar – they finished second in their group with one win, a draw and a loss. However, they went on to clinch their sixth title with trademark efficiency, three 1-0 wins paving the way. Although not as all-conquering in Europe as they were before Euro 2013, Germany contain a huge amount of quality and have more experience than any other side when it comes to handling the pressures of major tournaments. In the Netherlands, in one of the stronger groups, the tournament has perhaps proved more competitive than they expected.

Roy Evans described Liverpool’s win as ‘kamikaze football’ but Kevin Keegan, during his time as Newcastle’s manager, helped to light up the Premier League History is not always written by the winners. Manchester United were unquestionably the best team in the land in 1996; they proved it by landing the league and Cup Double. The triumphant return of Eric Cantona, the flowering of the Class of ’92, you can’t win anything with kids, all that … there is plenty to go on. And yet this particular story is not theirs to tell. Occasionally the narrative is dominated by those who fell short. And that year there was clearly something in the air. Germany emerged triumphant at the European Championship, a tournament principally remembered for England’s dreaming, their 31st year of hurt. In golf the Green Jacket was draped around Nick Faldo’s shoulders at the Masters, the great man’s third win, an achievement back then bettered only by Jack and Arnie, though all everyone has talked about ever since is Greg Norman’s view-through-fingers collapse. And as for the Premiership …

Tour de France: why I am bidding au revoir to the greatest race of all18h Tour de France: why I am bidding au revoir to the greatest race of all
After covering 26 Tours I have some wonderful memories but the 2017 race was my last reporting full-time. It is time to spend my Julys doing something else When I returned from reporting on the Tour de France for the first time I told my then boss, Martin Ayres, that I felt the Tour could be addictive. That was 27 years and 26 Tours ago, which speaks for itself. Now it is time to go through the journalistic equivalent of cold turkey. I have decided this is my last Tour reporting full-time for the Guardian, nearly a quarter of a century after I was first offered the job. I will return to the race, I would hope, but not as a full-time, daily reporter, which is what I have been for 26 of the past 27 Tours – 20 of them completed in full – with all the stimulus, constraints, rewards and stress that role entails. I won’t be on the road next year; if and when I return it will be at a time of my choosing, to write about it in a different and equally rewarding way. I would hope it will be for the Guardian, but that particular decision can wait.

Premier League’s missing men: where have all the Scottish managers gone?31h Premier League’s missing men: where have all the Scottish managers gone?
For the first time since England’s top division rebranded there will not be a Scottish manager in charge of one of its clubs when the season gets under way. In 2011 there were seven, so why has their star fallen?It was a high point at the most curious of times. In 2011, long after Scotland’s national team had slid away from finals participation and its players had been revered in the English top flight, a mini coaching phenomenon was in play. Seven of the Premier League’s 20 managers were Scottish. To say nothing lasts forever is gross understatement in these short-term football times but the onset of season 2017-18 still provides a grim line in the sand. There will not be a single manager from north of the border when England’s top division gets under way, breaking a record of at least one per seasonal start which stretches back to the league’s 1992 rebranding. The run is technically even longer, given Sir Alex Ferguson took over at Manchester United six years earlier. Context is of course necessary; only five of those in Premier League office are English.

Any Shrubsole: ‘It is quite hard to remember everything that happened’32h Any Shrubsole: ‘It is quite hard to remember everything that happened’
England’s hero from the World Cup final victory over India admits she was so focused during the match that the magnitude of her achievment took time to sink inA sportsperson’s power of recall is a peculiar thing. Perhaps it is because their work relies on reaction and instinct, but many are prone to misremembering their own spectacular feats: forgetting dates, venues or even the details of the performance itself. For example, in cricket, it is common for batsmen looking back on their careers to recall an early breakthrough knock as a century when it may have only been a match-winning 60. Slowly but surely, the sands of time scrape away any authentic memory. During England’s celebrations deep into the London night, after the most miraculous of World Cup wins against India at Lord’s, Anya Shrubsole, player of the match award stuffed in her bag after a match-winning six for 46 (such is her modesty, her medal was buried deeper instead of around her neck) was given a piece of advice. To write something down. Her feelings, her emotions or simply the thoughts running through her head. To commit to paper a moment that deserves permanency.
