BRI­TISH No 3 Naomi Broady failed in her bid to qual­ify for the Mi­ami Open af­ter los­ing to New Zealan­der Ma­rina Erakovic. De­spite serv­ing six aces to her op­po­nent’s two, the 27-year-old lost the first set 7-5. Erakovic im­proved her ser­vice game in the se­cond set to take that 6-4 and reach the first round proper.

Peter Hand­scomb bat­ted for most of the last day for an un­beaten 72 as Aus­tralia sal­vaged a draw in the third test against In­dia. Hand­scomb (right) faced 200 balls af­ter go­ing to the crease in the first ses­sion of the fifth day with Aus­tralia 63 for four. He guided them to 204 for six, en­sur­ing Aus­tralia erased the

152-run first-in­nings deficit and en­sure In­dia could not grab vic­tory. the se­ries is level at 1-1 ahead of the fi­nal match, start­ing on Satur­day at Dharam­sala.
