Brisbane (Australia) (AFP) - A heavy hailstorm gave England some welcome respite in their bid to save the opening Ashes Test against Australia at the Gabba on Sunday. Players were sent from the field by the umpires and an early tea called with England at 142 for four on the fourth day. England face the massive task of having to bat for two days to prevent the Australians from going one-up in the five-Test series and they lost the wickets of Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell on Sunday. Pietersen and Cook had safely negotiated the opening hour, but two balls after first drinks Mitchell Johnson struck when Pietersen injudiciously hooked a bouncer straight to backward square leg.
LeBron James drained a jump shot 15.1 seconds left to seal a 101-99 victory over Orlando for NBA champions Miami, who rallied from a 16-point second-half deficit. NBA Most Valuable Player James on Saturday ended with 22 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, as the Heat completed the sweep of the home-and-home series against their cross-state rivals. Miami dominated the Magic 120-92 on Wednesday. Dwyane Wade, back in action after missing two games with a sore knee, scored 27 points and Chris Bosh scored 15 in the Heat's sixth straight victory since they dropped a decision to Boston on November 9.
