    NASCAR did not have its finest weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where the follow-up to the Daytona 500 began with the theft of a race car and a parked SUV rolling into Denny Hamlin's motorhome. Qualifying was a debacle for the second week in a row, rain delayed the start of Sunday's race and Jeff Gordon once again managed to crash into a concrete wall that lacked an energy-absorbing barrier. By the time Jimmie Johnson took the checkered flag to close a cold and wet weekend, everyone was ready to get out of Atlanta. It was a momentum-killing weekend for NASCAR, which had staged a strong season-opener one week earlier only to fall flat at one of the more historic tracks on the circuit.

    Kurt Busch has agreed to follow NASCAR's recommended guidelines to be eligible for eventual reinstatement. The 2004 champion was indefinitely suspended Feb. 20 after a Delaware judge said he believed Busch likely committed an act of domestic violence against a former girlfriend and there was a ''substantial likelihood'' of him doing it again. Busch lost two rounds of appeals for reinstatement before the season-opening Daytona 500 and has missed the first two races of the season. Regan Smith has replaced him in the No. 41 Chevrolet.

    Ireland and Zimbabwe face each other in a Pool B clash at Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Saturday in a match that could have a key bearing on both sides' chances of reaching the quarter-finals of the World Cup. The Irish are just ahead of Zimbabwe in the standings with four points from three matches compared to the Africans' two from four. Zimbabwe have two handicaps going into the match against Ireland, arguably the most impressive of all the four non-Test or Associate sides at this World Cup. They will be without captain Elton Chigumbura after the 28-year-old all-rounder suffered a thigh injury when he tripped and fell while chasing a ball in Sunday's 20-run loss to Pakistan at the Gabba in Brisbane.

    Three-time defending champion flat jockey Richard Hughes has followed jump champion AP McCoy's example and announced he will retire at the end of the upcoming season. The 42-year-old Irishman intends to take on a new challenge of training, his retaining trainer Richard Hannon announced on Wednesday. Hughes -- son of late top Irish national hunt trainer Dessie -- believes according to Hannon it is the right time to make the switch. Among the big winners he has ridden include the 1998 Irish Champion Hurdle on Collier Bay and four mainstream classics including in 2013 the 1000 Guineas with Sky Lantern and the Epsom Oaks on Talent.

    South Africa captain AB de Villiers backed Dale Steyn to be a World Cup match-winner despite the strike bowler struggling to hit top form at the tournament. After an indifferent start to the World Cup, Steyn marked his 100th one-day international with 2-39 in the 201-run mauling of Ireland at the Manuka Oval on Tuesday. Bowling with pace and venom, Steyn sent back opener Paul Stirling for nine and then had danger man Ed Joyce picked up for nought as the Proteas claimed their third win in four games. By contrast, fellow fast bowler Morne Morkel has 9-174 from four games while the unheralded Kyle Abbott boasts 6-58 in two matches since he came in to replace the injured Vernon Philander.

    Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura has been ruled out of Saturday's make-or-break World Cup clash against Ireland with a thigh injury, the team announced Wednesday. The 28-year-old all-rounder was hurt in Sunday's 20-run loss to Pakistan in Brisbane when he tripped and fell while chasing a ball in the Gabba outfield. "A MRI scan showed that Chigumbura suffered a third grade tear of his quadriceps muscle -– a large muscle group on the front of the thigh," said a Zimbabwe team statement.
