AB de Villiers, Hasan Ali Become Numero Uno ODI Players

If South Africa beat Bangladesh 3-0, then they will move to 121 points, who are right now tied with India on 120 points, just decimals ahead.

South Africa batsman AB de Villiers and Pakistan bowler Hasan Ali have assumed the top positions in the International Cricket Council (ICC) one-day international rankings.

While Pakistan are now locked in an ODI battle with Sri Lanka, having won the first three of the five matches, South Africa are in the middle of a three-match series against Bangladesh.

Kurt Angle to Return to the Ring at "TLC"
Arguably the best worker to ever lace a pair of boots, he has repeatedly shown an ability to excel in matches of many types. The most obvious replacement is Matt Hardy, who is the originator of the TLC match and is without a match on Sunday's card.

De Villiers insisted that what he need was couple of months away with the family, which he got during the break. "I could feel the ball coming off really well", he said", he said. "It's not something I play for", he added. "It felt like I never really left, but I did miss being playing".

When he played in Paarl, there were many who were dismayed by the team management's decision to risk an in-form batsman, like Tamim, who had already aggravated the injury during the first ODI.

Middle-order batsman Mominul Haque, who is in the ODI squad, will remain with the team for the T20Is as Tamim's replacement with Soumya Sarkar or Liton Das likely to open in his absence.

Malaysia, US firm ink deal to restart MH370 search: Canberra
But no trace of the jetliner was found despite the scouring of a 120,000 sq km zone that cost some A$200 million (S$213 million). The Boeing 777, en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur , had gone missing on 8 March 2014 with 239 people on board.

Meanwhile, pacer Rubel Hossain climbed seven notches to 61st position after his four-wicket haul in the second ODI against South Africa.

The third and the final ODI will take place on Sunday in East London.

MI vs. Penn State: Point Spread, Total & Prediction
Barkley will have a tough time gaining any yards on the ground against a MI defense that only surrenders 85 yards per game. Traveling fans in the western part of the state should make out a lot better, or at least their checking accounts should.
