HOT OR NOT: Sam Curran delivers stunning contribution to England win,

It's Hot or Not time again as Sportsmail's RIATH AL-SAMARRAI reveals what's been making him feel warm and what's been leaving him cold this week.
What a stunning contribution to England's win over India from a 20-year-old without a central contract. As India coach Ravi Shastri said of the all-rounder: 'More than England, it was Curran who hurt us.' The contract is on its way for the man of the series, and a few more caps as well.
Unless the Court of Arbitration for Sport decide otherwise, Semenya has run her last international race in her natural form — and she won it at the Continental Cup. Barring a CAS reprieve, from November Semenya and other athletes with naturally high testosterone levels would have to take hormone-lowering medication to compete.
His record before this year shows he had only once played three majors in a season and never qualified for the Masters. This season he was 10th at the Masters (after dislocating his ankle on the eve of the tournament), ninth at the Open, fifth in the US Open, and he has just been awarded Jim Furyk's last US wildcard for the Ryder Cup. 
The US Tennis Association chief executive has been one of Serena Williams' biggest supporters in the row over umpiring in the US Open final. How pathetic, then, that she was reportedly grovelling to that umpire, Carlos Ramos, at the Davis Cup this week. One face in public, another behind the scenes — not a great look.
He has hardly come out well from this Harry Arter saga. If the accounts and voice recordings from the Irish camp are to be believed, and Martin O'Neill has disputed some parts, it is odd that he would so aggressively ask a player to perform while injured when you consider he has admitted his own regrets from doing so in his career.
Magistrates heard how the Tottenham goalkeeper was double the drink-drive limit in his Porsche and was caught by police running a red light and veering towards parked cars. Mauricio Pochettino was right to say Lloris was lucky that there were no consequences to others or himself. But quite why the Frenchman keeps the Spurs captaincy is a bit of a mystery.
