Australia cruise in.

Cricket: A knock of 97 from Michael Clarke helped Australia to a convincing victory over Pakistan at Hobart in the VB triangular one-day series. Clarke's impressive effort, which included 12 fours and one six in 99 deliveries, steered Australia to their revised target of 253 runs from 45 overs, after rain had disrupted their response to Pakistan's 272 runs for the loss of seven wickets after 50 overs. Australia reached their target with two overs to spare, to claim five points and move on to 11 for the series following their victory in their first contest against the West Indies.

Hockey battlers

HOCKEY: An England team depleted by injury and illness battled to a 0-0 draw against South Africa in Pretoria yesterday. With one win apiece so far, either side could claim the four-match series with victory in the final game tomorrow.

Fry's fighting talk

MOTOR RACING: New BAR boss Nick Fry has vowed to "come out of the box fighting" when the Formula One season begins in March. Fry has been promoted to team boss after David Richards' departure and launched BAR's 2005 car in Barcelona yesterday promising to be in the hunt for victories from the very start of the season. Fry, who was promoted from managing director after Honda bought 45pc of the team, said: "Make no bones about it we'll be coming out of the box fighting. We're going to be going for it from race one."

Taylor at camp

RUGBY UNION: Injured British and Irish Lion Simon Taylor will attend a Scotland training camp today. The 25-year-old is still recovering from knee ligament damage but is expected to be selected for the Lions' tour of New Zealand this summer. The Edinburgh number eight was among 46 players named by Scotland coach Matt Williams for a national training squad camp.

Fallon in split

RACING: Former champion jockey Kieren Fallon has split with agent Ron Anderson three weeks after arriving in the United States to ride in Florida for the winter. Fallon, who has made a good start to his stint with three winners on turf at Gulfstream Park despite having had few opportunities so far, will now be looked after by Terry Miller. Anderson also books mounts for Hall Of Fame jockey Jerry Bailey, and initial hopes that the two great riders could work in tandem appear to have rapidly foundered. "Jerry just didn't feel comfortable with the situation," said Anderson.
