Though David Moyes has repeated a club mantra that Rooney is not for sale, the player has yet to match that sentiment. Rooney did attend this lunchtime’s high-profile sponsorship launch for Russian airline Aeroflot at Old Trafford and is said to have returned for pre-season training in positive spirits and good condition, which has not always been the case. Robson advised the striker to think very carefully before severing ties with the club that has been his home for nine seasons. “Sometimes when you are a great footballer you do look and wonder whether the grass is greener somewhere other than where you are,” said Robson. Bryan Robson has warned Wayne Rooney “the grass is not always greener” and the England striker will find it very difficult to match life at Manchester United. “But once this club and its fans embrace you it is very difficult to surpass it, or even get the same. Wayne has everything he could possibly want at this football club and as a supporter, I want to see the best players playing here.” The ongoing issue would appear to revolve around Sir Alex Ferguson’s claim at the end of last season that Rooney requested a move. It is a statement the player denies making and fearing a backlash from supporters who have not forgotten his high-profile transfer request in 2010, wants the public to accept. That seems an impossible hope. “Hopefully they do resolve any issues there are,” said Robson. “It is very obvious all the squad and the manager want Wayne to be playing his football here next season. “All you have to do is look back to Ronaldo at the World Cup when he had the incident with Wayne. After two games, he was playing fantastically well for us, everybody forgot about it and now everyone loves him. That is the scenario for Wayne. If he starts the season, scores a few goals and enjoys his football, the fans will forgive anything there is to forgive him for.” Given United ensured Moyes and his entire first-team squad attended Monday’s event, it is clear some significance – and no little finance – is attached to it. It is likely to be the first of many too judging by the way United’s commercial arm has expanded under the Glazer regime, although it appears Moyes was prepared for that. “I was made very aware by the previous manager that this club has lots of sponsors and that is very much part of the job,” said Moyes. “I am delighted to have another on board.” Moyes offered no insight into the potential signing of Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara, which is said to be reaching its conclusion, though. When asked if there had been any developments, Moyes added: “Not today. I couldn’t tell you anything.” Press Association
New Delhi: Pakistan had been embarrased by Sri Lanka heading into the series against Australia. The 3-0 whitewash of the side ranked No.1 in the format in their own backyard was a wake-up call for Pakistan but in Australia, they did not learn their lessons. After rain saved them in Sydney, they were outclassed by a masterful knock from Steve Smith in Canberra. In Perth, their humiliation was complete as they lost by 10 wickets in the third and final Twenty20 International at the New Perth Stadium to lose the series 0-2. This was the third time Pakistan had been thrashed by 10 wickets in the format while for Australia, this was their second 10-wicket loss.Pakistan were never in the game once Australia won the toss and chose to bowl on a pacy wicket in Perth. Babar Azam, who has been the best Twenty20 Interntional batsman for Pakistan, was trapped LBW by Mitchell Starc for 6 and the left-arm pacer followed it up by getting rid of Mohammad Rizwan for a first-ball duck. When Sean Abbott got rid of Imam ul Haq for 14, all hopes rested on Iftikhar Ahmed who had impressed in the Canberra match.Iftikhar got going with three boundaries off Starc but his partner Haris Sohail struggled. Ashton Agar ended Sohail’s misery while Khushdil Shah, the debutant, also failed to impress when Kane Richardson sent him back for eight. Iftikhar continued on his merry ways and hit two fours off Richardson and he neared his fifty. However, Pakistan lost three quick wickets with Abbott getting rid of Imad Wasim. Richardson took Iftikhar’s wicket and Shadab Khan in the same over and it felt like Pakistan would not reach 100.Mohammad Hasnain hit a four and Mohammad Amir hit a six off Starc but Pakistan confounded the cricketing world when they managed just two runs in the final two overs. Hasnain, in particular, played out nine consecutive dot balls and Australia restricted them to 106/8. There was no such problems for Aaron Finch and David Warner and they demoralised Pakistan even further. Warner got going with a six and Pakistan missed a run-out of Warner when the keeper missed with the direct hit. Finch hit two boundaries off Mohammad Musa while he targeted the bowler with a four and a six. The Australia skipper continued to find the boundary and he launched Hasnain for another big six. Warner hit two fours off Amir to ensure Australia ended the powerplay on 56/0.

However, it was Finch who reached his fifty and sealed the game in grand style when he lofted Musa for a boundary to give Australia victory and the series. With this win, Australia have ensured that they end 2019 on a high in Twenty20 Internationals, having not lost a single game. They have swept away all the sub-continent powers and they will be building good momentum heading into the World T20 that will be played on their home turf.
