West Ham beat Huddersfield to get first three points of season

Pedro Obiang’s heavily deflected goal was the moment of luck West Ham needed to set them on the way to their first points of the Premier League season as Huddersfield suffered their first defeat. The Hammers, whose manager Slaven Bilic was under pressure after three successive league defeats, were below par – although the visitors offered little threat. Javier Hernandez hit the bar in the first half, in one of West Ham’s few clear-cut chances. The breakthrough came in the 72nd minute when Obiang’s 25-yard strike hit Mathias Jorgensen’s back and looped over keeper Jonas Lossl.

Security tight as foreign cricketers return to Pakistan

Pakistan is hosting its first big international cricketing event on home soil for eight years. Security is tight for the three-match T20 series between Pakistan and a World XI in Lahore, beginning on Tuesday. International teams stopped visiting Pakistan after a March 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team in which seven of its players were injured. In 2015, a tour by the Zimbabwean team was marred by a bomb attack near the Lahore stadium. Cricket is hugely popular in Pakistan, and cricketing authorities have been keenly working to revive the game at home.
