Bafana Bafana made it two from two as they were held to a goalless draw by New Zealand in a friendly in Auckland on Friday 30th May.
Having drawn 1-1 with Australia’s Socceroos in Sydney on Monday, Bafana could not shake the Kiwis, who played above their lowly 111th world ranking and did just enough to keep out the visiting South Africans.
Colombian Movistar rider Nairo Quintana won the first Grand Tour of his career with victory in the Giro d’Italia.
The 24-year-old finished two minutes 58 seconds ahead of compatriot Rigoberto Uran, 27, after the final stage from Gemona del Friuli to Trieste.
Italian Fabio Aru, 23, was third overall, 4:04 behind Quintana.
Manish Pandey struck a superb 94 to lead the Kolkata Knight Riders to a three-wicket win over the Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League final at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday.
Pandey’s superb knock off just 50 balls with seven fours and six sixes saw Kolkata reach 200-7 with three balls of their innings remaining in reply to Punjab’s 199-4.
The result was particularly hard on Wriddhiman Saha who had scored a wonderful 115 not out off a mere 55 balls with 10 fours and eight sixes for Punjab as Kolkata secured their second IPL title.
