6:32 pm
good evening, lots to bring you over the next 20 minutes, but we'll start with an all too familar tale for england cricket fans. australia are firmly in control of the second test in adelaide after day three. england were all out in their first innings forjust 227, but australia failed to enforce the follow—on and paid the price — losing four wickets late—on, in a compelling day of test cricket. andy swiss reports in adelaide. a tense end to a dramatic day. england last four wickets in the
6:33 pm
first session, including joe root and alastair cook. then australia we re and alastair cook. then australia were inspired. an incredible quart bowl from mitchell starc. were inspired. an incredible quart bowl from mitchell sta rc. england rallied with craig overton guiding them to something approaching respectability but their final total of two to seven meant they trailed by 215. australia could have enforced the follow—on, asking him battered again but they decided not to, it controversial decision because australia last four early wickets. the bowlers of england seemingly inspired onto the floodlights, two wickets forjimmy anderson and two for chris woakes, including the prize scalp of the australian captain steve smith. england ending the day on a positive note the australia still very much in the driving seat. england have a sliver of hope and chris woakes was
6:34 pm
delighted with how his team responded. we fought back well. we pushed australia back tonight which is good to see. we can take positives format. we are behind in the game but at the same time, it's really good the fact we fought back and showed good character to get ourselves back in the game. i thought we bowled really well tonight as a unit and its book some pressure back on australia. australia still very much in control of this match. but the decision by steve smith not to enforce the follow—on does not look so clever with australia four wickets down going into today for. these were the thoughts of their fast bowler mitchell starc. we know the night sessions are the toughest as was automatic. —— as we saw to night. if england want to go to win this test much they will have to go through two night session. great sign for us, if you look at session closed there with the bat. with a lead of
6:35 pm
260 going into a day session if you like, we are still very much in the driving seat. despite the latest drama, australia still very much in control. they lead by 268 runs going into day four. england hope they can get early wickets, put more pressure on australia, but even so australia ina great on australia, but even so australia in a great position to go 2—0 up in the series and from there, it is a long way back for england. so, yet another dramatic day of ashes cricket down under... in the afternoon session it looked like australia were on the way to going 2—0 up in the series, but after losing those late wickets, have they given england the chance of an unlikely victory? here are the thoughts of the former england opener marcus trescothick. i think they gave themselves a glimmer of hope with the session they had to night under the lights. jimmy anderson bowl particularly well, chris woakes got some wickets as well. we've got a sniff but is not great. it's not a great
6:36 pm
situation having been there and been in that situation, it's tricky. we need to be bowling them out before lunch tomorrow and be batting, chasing just over 300. anything 350 plus and i think we are staring down the barrel unfortunately. some better news for england this evening, batsman alex hales has been told he won't face criminal charges over an incident outside a bristol nightclub in september and is available for immediate selection. hales was with ben stokes, who was arrested on suspicion hales is a specialist in the one—day format of the game, so is unlikely to play any part in the ashes, but could join the squad for england's odi and t20 matches against australia. hales, of course, was with ben stokes, who was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm in that incident. he wasn't arrested, but was interviewed under caution by police. hales could still be punished by the ecb. despite sitting in the premier league relegation zone, crystal palace have today announced ambitious plans to redevelop their stadium selhurst park in a project that could cost up to £100 million.
6:37 pm
the cloud is to build a 5—tier main stand, which will increase the capacity from 26,000 to more than 3a,000. sara orchard has been at selhurst park all day, and sara, some good news for the palace fans in what's been a difficult season so far? yes, some respite for the eagles fa ns after a yes, some respite for the eagles fans after a rough start. and the crowd trouble that mark that much away at brighton last week. confirmation the club will not be moving from this current site because for many years they mooted moving away. they will be redeveloping selhurst park in particular the main stand which will be across five stories to increase the corporate and hospitality areas. they also want to increase the capacity and size of the pitch. that would bring it up to international standards and they hope to be able to do all of this while they still continue to play at the club. they
6:38 pm
confirmed earlier there is further scope for development at the ground but on top of that, the current chairman is very happy with the current ambition. if we do get relegated this year or next year, we still intend to do it. it's very important to the future of this football club that i think it makes a statement. when you look at a football club, what do you think those are good the stadium is the first thing you think of. i don't think this is commensurate with what we are doing. we need something better. whoever we are end up this season or next. i think is the right sale leg scale and size. —— right scale and size. it comes down to planning approval. they want to submit to croydon council by the end of next year and could begin building by the end of 2018. croydon say they've had good conversation so

champions league campaign, it's been brilliant. the supporters have been incredible for us home and away but it would be nice for us to finish this campaign with a victory at home. and take us to six points which would again, so a great level of progress to us at this level. the equation is simple. if celtic can do better than a 3—goal defeat, then they will be playing in the europa league in the new year. a personal milestone for the club captain scott brown who leads the team out and he will be the first scot to play 69 matches in the premier competition. also coming up in the programme... the uk snooker championship continues to serve up surprises. another of the top seeds is out — judd trump is the latest to fall in york. they caused one of the biggest shocks in fa cup history , knocking

6:45 pm
show. it was awesome. the former world champion is back in the big—time. at the opposite end of the scale, world number 82 from china has beaten the seventh in the world and isn't this a sign of the times in snooker? certainly strength and depth of the game is getting better. there are so many potential banana skin is out there but it is a coming of age of the chinese players of the game. they have been threatening for many years, we've been predicting there will be a chinese surge of players but now i think we are in the situation where there are finally becoming competitors in the finally becoming competitors in the final stages of the event. we've now lost 1—3 in the world, ronnie o'sullivan is now the top—ranked player. how happy would you characterise how it's gone? i'm not massively surprised at these upset.

operation, and the cartilage was over blocking my airways, i couldn't breathe properly. iwas over blocking my airways, i couldn't breathe properly. i was criticised up breathe properly. i was criticised up being unfit. then i had surgery on my shoulder, it came to the other side now and unhealthy. healthy and fit and injury free. it feels like i've said that a lot the past few years but i am feeling great now. i can't wait for saturday. the super middleweight division in britain is buzzing with talent. it evokes memories of the heavy showdowns two and a half decades ago featuring nigel benn and chris eubank. now it's the turn of chris eubank to nijjar george groves and cameron smith all of whom are involved in the semifinals of the world boxing super series with james degale lying in waitfor super series with james degale lying in wait for the winner. hopefully my next fight will be against the wc world title. i am a proud champion

6:50 pm
lobby across his legs. —— from the lorry. i thought you'd never be saved. in the days and weeks that followed, brett counted the number of operations he went, and over time, putting on weight, he decides to claim at the boxing club. the coach welcome to the boxers kizzire trained hard, but you will never be up trained hard, but you will never be up to fight. i never claim to fight,. his inspiration has had an effect on others. he's an inspiration tojuniors effect on others. he's an inspiration to juniors and seniors who come to gym. he has a disadvantage because you can't move as quick as other boxers, he finds it difficult to twist from the hips and move his legs. but because he's so and move his legs. but because he's so fit, and has so much pressure on him,
