You are listening to the Expresso Sports Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Indian and International Sports brought to you by The Indian Express.
“Let’s begin with news from India’s tour of the West Indies.

India beat West Indies by 88 runs in the inconsequential fifth T20 International to win the series 4-1. Opting to bat, India posted 188 for seven with Shreyas Iyer top-scoring with a 40-ball 64. Deepak Hooda scored 38. Odean Smith was the pick of the bowlers for West Indies with figures of 3/33. Chasing 189 to win, West Indies were all out for 100 runs in 15.4 overs. Shimron Hetmyer was the highest scorer for West Indies with 56 but none of his colleagues supported him. The next best batter was Shamarh Brooks who made 13. Ravi Bishnoi took four wickets, while Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav got three apiece.”
“Shreyas Iyer roared back to form with a stroke-filled 64 while the spinners picked up all the 10 wickets as India recorded yet another one-sided 88-run victory over West Indies to wrap up the five-match T20 International series by a comprehensive 4-1 margin here.

Then, Pandya handed the new ball to Axar Patel (3-1-15-3), who quickly removed makeshift opener Jason Holder (0), Shamarah Brooks (13) and Devon Thomas (10) with three arm balls on a track where balls stopped and gripped off the surface.

West Indies were all out for 100 runs inside 16 overs as one of the most lopsided T20I bilateral series came to an end even though India won’t be complaining having ticked most of the boxes.”
“Meanwhile,

Manchester United slumped to a 2-1 loss against Brighton at Old Trafford on Sunday in Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League game in charge, dispelling any notion that the Dutch coach could provide an instant fix to the many issues that plagued the team last season.

United looked vulnerable in defence — with Pascal Gross scoring twice in the first half to put Brighton in control — and toothless in attack until Cristiano Ronaldo came on early in the second half.

And the questions about Ronaldo’s future at the club remain.

United’s players were booed off at halftime and the final whistle, with Ten Hag looking grim-faced as he walked off the field.

United will play Brentford next.”
“Liverpool had to come from behind twice to salvage a 2-2 draw at promoted Fulham on Saturday, largely thanks to new signing Darwin Nunez, after a performance that Jurgen Klopp conceded was well short of the team’s standards.

Tottenham also conceded an early goal but came roaring back to earn a 4-1 victory at home against Southampton after a dominant display that hinted that Spurs are well gelled after a full offseason under Conte, who took over as manager last November.

Chelsea also had a winning start but in a less impressive fashion, holding on for 1-0 at Everton after Jorginho netted a late first-half penalty.

Newcastle, Leeds and Bournemouth also won in their league openers. ”
“Nottingham Forest spent most of the game defending in its return to the top flight after an absence of 23 years. They still couldn’t prevent Newcastle’s Fabian Schar from finally breaking the deadlock with a long-range shot. Newcastle won 2-0 after Callum Wilson added the second in the 78th.

Forest manager Steve Cooper said, “We were second best in the game no doubt. We coped OK in terms of possession and territory but didn’t play well enough with the ball.”

Fellow newcomers Bournemouth got off to a better start after Scott Parker won the battle of the former England midfielders as his team earned a 2-0 home win over Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa.”
“Arsenal’s newcomers made an immediate impact as they opened the English Premier League by beating host Crystal Palace 2-0.

Left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko set up the opening goal in the first half while striker Gabriel Jesus created several chances and defender William Saliba put in a near-flawless performance in his first start for Arsenal.

The Gunners still had to endure a nervy second half before Bukayo Saka’s attempted cross was deflected into his net by Palace defender Marc Guehi in the 85th.

Arsenal took the lead from a well-worked corner in the 20th, when Zinchenko met a long delivery into the area and headed back across goal toward Gabriel Martinelli, who nodded the ball in from close range.”
“And finally,

Sadio Mané scored on his league debut and Bayern Munich routed Eintracht Frankfurt 6-1 to start the new Bundesliga.

Jamal Musiala got two goals and Joshua Kimmich, Benjamin Pavard and Serge Gnabry also scored as Bayern showed no ill effect from Robert Lewandowski’s summer transfer to Barcelona.

Speaking of Lewandowski’s departure, Musiala said, “We have to find new ways to score because he always scored 40 goals a season.” Bayern’s sheer dominance against the team that won the Europa League last season shows why it remains the firm favourite for a record-extending 11th consecutive title.

The Bavarian powerhouse had 17 shots at goal in the first half alone, when the visitors could also shrug off a comical miss from Thomas Müller.”
