It is Gambia's first democratic election since former President Yahya Jammeh was voted out of office in 2016.

Ajaz Patel has joined a very exclusive club of Test bowlers after his heroics for New Zealand against India on Saturday. The left-arm spinner incredibly took all 10 wickets in the same innings as the Black Caps limited their opponents to 325 on the second day of the second Test at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai - the city of his birth. Patel, 33, is just the third bowler ever to complete such a remarkable feat in Test cricket, following in the footsteps of ex-India star Anil Kumble and former England player Jim Laker, who did it in 1999 (against Pakistan) and 1956 (against Australia) respectively.

The Utah Jazz owner would be missing a home game Friday night against the Boston Celtics.

Matt Harmon is joined by 4for4's TJ Hernandez to preview Week 13's DFS main slate. While the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers face off in what could be the weekend's highest-scoring matchup, there is a sneaky little team called the Detroit Lions that have a very interesting matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

The couple was caught by the Detroit Police Department when a business owner called 911 after spotting the suspects' car in their parking lot and Jennifer Crumbley standing next to it, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
