Sport’s Christmas Report

Thursday 25/12/14

With no sports featured on Christmas Day, there will be some teams in need of Christmas Miracle.

India will be needing a miracle if they are the have any chance of winning this summer’s test series against the Aussies. After a second test demolition, there are reports in the camp of disharmony with a dressing room spat between Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. It appears the Indian team is divided and it’s affecting not only off field behaviour, but also on field. It seems this could be MS Dohni’s last series as captain.

The main theme of the EPL wish list is for wins throughout the busy Christmas period with most teams playing 3 games starting tomorrow night within a 6-day period. One of those teams in desperate need is Crystal Palace. After finishing a modest middle table last season, the eagles have struggled to find their feet under Neil Warnock and are staring down the barrel of relegation. Liverpool are also hoping that the injury list becomes shorter in a hurry. Sitting in 7th place, the Reds have been struggling to score goals without Daniel Sturridge (knee), which has seen the Mersysiders win only 3 of their last 8 league games. In the end, it will be about who’s been naughty and who has been nice.

In the NFL, it seems that Christmas has come early for defending champions, the Seattle Seahawks after a win over conference rivals, the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday. Quarterback Russell Wilson threw 2 touchdown passes and running back Marshawn Lynch scored 2 touchdowns, including a spectacular, multiple tackle-breaking 79-yard scoring run to see Seattle win 35-6 and one game closer to winning the NFC title.

Have a great Christmas readers!
