Aaron Finch blasted a national World Cup record 153 to send Australia top of the World Cup standings with an 87-run victory over Sri Lanka at The Oval. Finch equalled his career-best One Day International innings in a one-sided result, the skipper eclipsing Ricky Ponting’s unbeaten 140 from the 2003 final as Australia’s top World Cup innings. Australia’s commanding victory offered a statement of intent for their World Cup intentions and a warning to their rivals, notably England. Sri Lanka’s Milinda Siriwardana is bowled out (Adam Davy/PA)And so Sri Lanka’s innings, and the match, petered out to the inevitable Australia win.

Kerry 1-18 - 1-16 OffalyIt was an historic day in Austin Stack Park as Kerry condemned four times Liam McCarthy Cup winners Offaly to Christy Ring Cup hurling in 2020 when they won this Joe McDonagh dogfight and maintained their second-tier status for another year.

People Before Profit TD Gino Kenny has hit back in a row with the Taoiseach over his response to a parliamentary question on medicinal cannabis this week. Today he claimed Deputy Kenny had only posed the question in order to get a clip he could share on social media, in an interview with RTÉ Radio. But the Dublin Mid-West TD says that was not the case - and the Taoiseach is only making things worse. "I'm sorry if it came across that way," the Taoiseach said when asked if he was rude and dismissive. "What Leo Varadkar said this morning compounds the disrespect he has for this issue, not only for myself but for the families that have been campaigning for medicinal cannabis over the last three years," he added.
