The injury rules the influential midfielder out of Monday's Premier League home game against relegation-threatened West Ham United, a match in which the runaway league leaders will be desperate "to put things right", the German added. It felt after the game like a defeat, it felt the next morning like a defeat. "With all the brilliance that Man City have... (West Ham) weren't outplayed like you would expect when City is on the pitch," Klopp said. "They... didn't have a lot of possession obviously so I wouldn't expect that they go for much more possession against us but...

After Pakistan missed multiple previous deadlines, the Financial Action Task Force said it was concerned that Islamabad had again failed to complete an internationally agreed action plan. "The FATF strongly urges Pakistan to swiftly complete its full action plan by June 2020," the FATF said in a statement issued after a meeting in Paris. "Otherwise, should significant and sustainable progress especially in prosecuting and penalizing TF [terrorism financing] not be made by the next Plenary, the FATF will take action." Finance Ministry and counter-terrorism officials say Pakistan has done much under pressure to comply with FATF's 27-point agenda, which included an unprecedented conviction for terrorism financing of Hafiz Saeed, chief of the Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group. In 2018 the FATF placed Pakistan on its "grey list" of countries with inadequate controls over terrorism financing, which made foreign firms more cautious about investing in Pakistan.

Leg-spinner Poonam Yadav bowled India to an upset 17-run win over defending champions Australia in the opening game of the women's Twenty20 World Cup in Sydney on Friday. pic.twitter.com/iJ0z8F88QQ — T20 World Cup (@T20WorldCup) February 21, 2020Voted India's top female player last year, she bagged the crucial wickets of Healy, Rachael Haynes and Ellyse Perry, and was desperately unlucky not to grab a hat-trick in her match-winning 4-19. It was a big win for India, with only the top two from each of the two five-team groups making the knockout phase. Lanning's team, four-time World Cup winners, were rarely tested through the second half of 2019 when they whitewashed an injury-ravaged West Indies and a developing Sri Lanka team in the short format. pic.twitter.com/kOPQx6At6f — T20 World Cup (@T20WorldCup) February 21, 2020It looked a dubious decision as exciting 16-year-old opener Shafali Verma powered India to 40 without loss after four overs.
