final thought, if i've just matches have been played in front of huge crowds. the ashes, significant to the whole concept of test match cricket game seems as significant, as important, and is valuable as it ever has been. the man of the series was always going to be steve smith — his only batting failure coming on the final day. but still 774 runs in four test matches at an average of more than 110 — isn't too bad going. it would have been nice if they had a few more runs under my belt in this game as they walked off. but, yah, look, it was a nice reception. they have given it my all since they have been here. the last four x five months. and every test match we have played, and i did not have much left to give today, i'm pretty cooked, to be honest, mentally and physically —— fourand half be honest, mentally and physically —— four and half months. i'm looking forward to a nice couple of weeks

of the sport today team, goodbye. hello. the weekend has been very mixed. glorious across much of the south—east, really wild for a time across the north of scotland. and in between something a little bit in between. some sunshine but a bit of rain as well. the forthcoming week, largely dry, ok, a little bit of rain, perhaps, in the north—west of scotland at times. there will be some chilly nights around as well. this is how we're shaping up for monday. the remnants of the weekend's weather front to be had across the south. a lot of cloud around, the odd bit of rain. primarily i would have thought before lunchtime. after lunch a lot of cloud. further north the better chance of seeing some sunshine, a gaggle of showers there across the north of scotland, urged along by a noticeable breeze, but nowhere near as windy as the weekend. and cooler, fresher feel for the most part — simply because we're developing a bit of a north—westerly across the british isles. high pressure trying to elbow its way in, so giving that impression of a lot of dry weather to be had. variable amounts of cloud, quite a noticeable wind down the eastern shores and
1:56 am
through the northern isles. and there comes that finger of rain just pushing into the north—western quarter of scotland. temperatures, better get used to it, this is how it will be for a wee while, 13 in the north to around about 20 or so in the south. from tuesday on into wednesday, the high pressurejust eases in a little bit further, cutting off that supply of north—westerlies. so perhaps just feeling a tad warmer. more cloud as this warm frontjust hangs around across scotland and there are bits and pieces of rain to be had here. cloudy fare for northern ireland the north of england. the best of the sunshine away towards the south—west, through the south—west midlands and into wales. and again, 12 to about 20 willjust about cover it. from wednesday on into thursday, that high pressure really does become ours. little in the way of breeze. it could be a foggy started the day and it could be a grey day where that fog lingers. because there's little breeze to shift it. there are no weather fronts to speak of. so it could be quite a cloudy day for some. but at least for the most part
1:57 am
it is dry, if you've got outdoor plans to consider. maybe we're just finding a degree or two in some locations on those temperatures. 22 there in the south. by friday we're just beginning to bring in some air from the continent. so that's drier air. so less of a chance of cloud getting in the way of what is going be a sunny day. and the temperatures responding. coming up three or four degrees in hull, for example. and as we move towards the weekend i think we'll begin to tap into some real warmth coming up from iberia, the western mediterranean, towards the british isles. such that on saturday we could be looking at 211—25 somewhere in the south. and it's as far ahead as sunday before we see meaningful rain coming from the atlantic.
