Spanish midfielder David Silva has joined compatriots Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique in retiring from international football. The 32-year-old Manchester City playmaker won the World Cup in 2010 and the European Championship in 2008 and 2012, a key player during Spain’s golden era. Silva scored 35 goals in 125 games for the national team over 12 years and was described as ‘Spain’s Lionel Messi’ by former coach Vicente del Bosque. After a miserable match at Lord’s, Indian captain Virat Kohli ceded the number 1 Test batsman’s spot to former Australian skipper Steve Smith. Kohli, who slipped down to the number two spot, lost the position to former Australian captain Steve Smith, who is currently serving a one-year ban owing to his role in the ball-tampering scandal against South Africa earlier this year. #icc #test #kohli #50overcricket #cwc19 #news #game #cricket #team #time #today #odi #t20 #bollywood #sports #food #cricketer
