it has been a day of contrasting fortunes. a little bit more summer like in scotland with some sunshine. temperatures 23 degrees. in kent, various shades of grey and i know of one person he was lighting a fire this afternoon, it was so cold. it is the latter stages of august and we have this cloud covering overnight and it will lower unto the hills, a bit of drizzle here and there and temperatures underneath that blanket, i2 there and temperatures underneath that blanket, 12 to 14 degrees. rain coming into the northern isles and parts of mainland scotland. the rest of scotland should have sunny spells developing again. the cloud is tending to lift elsewhere and it will brighten up in many places with a hint of sunshine as well. as a result we have temperatures up to a reasonable 20 or 21 celsius. i will skip through the next couple of
days, so this is the story for thursday. patchy, like rain coming to northern ireland, wales, western england. ahead of that, a lot of dry weather, but still a lot of cloud so temperatures struggling to 17 to 21 celsius. 0n temperatures struggling to 17 to 21 celsius. on friday, another weather front coming in from the atlantic bringing rain towards northern ireland. the odd shower ahead of that may be brighter skies developing across parts of england and wales giving temperatures a boost to 23 degrees. first half of the weekend could get warm across the weekend could get warm across the midlands and particularly the south—east of england. temperatures could reach 26 degrees in the sunshine. it will be short lived because that warmth is coming ahead of that rain. the rain develops more widely overnight and into sunday across england and wales and it could be heavy and thundery. that's all from the bbc news at six. so it's goodbye from me and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.
hello there and welcome to sportsday. i'm gavin ramjaun. joe root says he'll learn from the defeat to india, after his england side crumbled on the final day to go one—down in the series. multiple world champion hannah cockroft talks to us ahead of the paralympic next week and whether she can bring more gold for team gb again. also coming up in the programme, we catch up with former heavyweight champion david haye, who's back in the ring again next month. could it be the start of bigger fights to come? this is not a come back, this is an anomaly, this is a one—off, this is just proving a point to a friend of mine.
hello there and welcome to the programme. there is work to do for england captainjoe route, despite a momentous score of 180 in their first innings of the second test against india, he said he is taking the blame for defeat at lord's. england crippled on the final day. india take the ascendancy in the series. abelson looks at what went wrong. this test match looked up to any that haven't played on that famous ground, certainly the conclusion on the final day, monday morning, england's cup seems half. but monday evening, it was empty for so they lost. clearly the way india's tail and batsmen were able to build that big lead on the final morning was crucial to india's success, and to take her silverwood conceded england could've gone back to plan a. the got carried away being aggressive, try to intimidate, rather than trying to take wickets. he think their relationship between the two
teams is good and he wants england to stay passionate, perhaps to be more focused. perhaps more like india. i more focused. perhaps more like india. ., ., ., , india. i thought for the four days, and probably _ india. i thought for the four days, and probably into _ india. i thought for the four days, and probably into that _ india. i thought for the four days, and probably into that first - india. i thought for the four days, and probably into that first hour. india. i thought for the four days, | and probably into that first hour of the fifth day, we played some really good cricket. unfortunately india pushed back strong after that and we did not have many answers. and you've got to give india credit for that as well, the way they rallied and put pressure back onto us. a team in a position we are in the position to aspire to be in. aside from injury _ position to aspire to be in. aside from injury concerns, _ position to aspire to be in. aside from injury concerns, the - position to aspire to be in. aside from injury concerns, the big - from injury concerns, the big selection issue for england remains, who is going to screw the runs in the team? there was strong backing today from chris to board for sam kerr and, today from chris to board for sam kerrand, despite today from chris to board for sam kerr and, despite his two golden ducks in the last test match. sometimes batsmenjust ducks in the last test match. sometimes batsmen just get good balls. but england must clearly make a decision about the likes of dom sibley. is it worth it to consider investing in a player or should they
look to alternatives? the list of possible candidates coming to the team is not long was in england today confirmed they will not approach ben stokes about coming back, won't rush him. that decision lies with stokes himself, and clearly there are bigger, more important issues at play, even after an all—consuming test match like the last one. joe wilson there. a round up of some more of the day's stories now. and also we will be looking back at the domestic day's action in the cricket, but let's have a look at the day's stories now. and we'll stay with cricket, because england will begin the t20 world cup in october with a repeat of the 2016 final against holders west indies. the windies won that with four successive sixes off ben stokes in the final over. south africa and australia join them both in their super 12s group along with two yet—to—be—determined qualifiers. chelsea striker tammy abraham has completed his move to jose mourinho's roma. capped six times by england, the 23—year—old moves to the italian capital for a fee of £34 million and has signed a five—year deal.
england women's rugby union team will face world cup holders new zealand twice this autumn — with the first game due to take place on the final weekend of october. as well as playing the black ferns twice, the red roses will also take on canada and the us at home. stage 4 of the vuelta a espana was won by dutch cyclist fabiojakobsen — the deceuninck-quickstep rider coming out on top in a sprint finish. britain's adam yates remains a minute and 21 seconds behind leader rein taaramae in the general classification standings. and organisers have confirmed next year's london marathon will again take place in october rather than its traditional april date. it will be the third successive year the race has been put back six months, with this year's race taking place on sunday, the 3rd of october. let's get back to the cricket novels of this summer, alongside test
cricket, we have been treated to a new, shorterform of the game, the hundred, and birmingham phoenix all but secured their place in the semifinal match in the women's game. they await other results to find out if they have any chance to make the final. the content was on for both northern superchargers and birmingham phoenix. a win would mean semifinal qualification, lose, it would be elimination. it did not take long for shafali verma to show her intentions. this was also powerfully hit but also misdirected. phoenix worn down afterjust three balls. help would come in the form of the two joneses, first from their captain twojoneses, first from their captain amy, two joneses, first from their captain amy, but after she was dismissed, evejones took over with the big hits, even managing to pick out her recently departed skipper in the dugout. she would eventually go for a brilliant 64 for the target
was 148. a target the superchargers captain took a chunk out of. she managed a 50, but her side were stopped in their tracks is something special to eve jones as head in the few that she is with the bat. that moment prove to be the turning point, the superchargers wickets started to tumble. the task was insurmountable. and it is birmingham who make the semifinal. the phoenix had a slow start to this tournament, with three wins in a row, or they rising at the right time? craig templeton, bbc news. let's get a look at the tennis now. andy murray withdrew from the singles event at the tokyo 0lympics but made a winning start, beating richard gasquet at the cincinnati 0pen. murray, who has won the tournament twice, eased into the second round with a 6—4, 6—4 victory.
britain's dan evans is out, though, beaten by diego schwartzman. i thought i did well. i think i moved pretty well for my first singles match in a while, on the hard courts. certainly, a little bit more confidence in my movement than i did when i played him here a couple of years ago. it was the first match i'd played since i had, singles match, since i'd had the metal hip put in, so i was a bit apprehensive. and he... you know, he uses all of the angles on the court really well and makes you move a lot. so you need to move well against him and i did that tonight. heather watson is also through to the second round of the women's event. she won in three sets against belarusian aliaksandra sasnovich and plays world number one ash barty next. naomi 0saka broke down in tears at her first press conference since pulling out of the french open for mental health reasons. the four—time grand slam winner was threatened with expulsion from roland garros after declaring she wouldn't fulfil her media duties. she missed wimbledon, competed at the olympics and, in her first press conference in almost three months at the cincinnati 0pen, became emotional when asked
about her difficulties in facing the media. when you say i'm not crazy about dealing with you guys, what does that refer to? well, you have said you don't especially like the press conference format. and yet that seems to be, obviously, the most widely used means of communicating to the media and through the media to the public. hm, that's interesting. i would say the occasion, like, when to do the press conferences, is what i feel is the most difficult. naomi 0saka. time now to hearfrom one of the paralympic�*s biggest stars. she has five paralympic golds, over ten world titles and three europeans to her name. hannah cockroft is a force to be reckoned with. and she's going for gold again in tokyo next week,
at her third games, which, like the olympics, will feature no spectators injapan due to covid. sally hurst has been talking to hannah at herfamily home in halifax before she set off for tokyo. hannah "the hurricane" cockroft is one of the paralympic games' biggest names — two golds in london, three in rio. will there be more in tokyo? it is going to be a very different games to the last two that i've experienced. but that's the magic of the games. no two are the same. so this one's going to be very, very different! a trip back to the family home is a chance to reflect on the past 12 months and a build up to a games like no other. i feel like that extra year, it gave me the chance to just rest a little bit and work on things that sometimes get swept under the rug. i actually really enjoyed that part of the process, just going back to, actually, what bits of the sport do i enjoy? there's no competitions to aim for, no times to beat. i'm just going to have fun. and i feel like that really gave me some passion back, to get in this year and
really want to do well. i am finally trying on all my kit. and no matter how many times you've represented your country, that new kit excitement never gets old. normally, i wouldn't be trying on my kit in my living room, i'd be at a kitting out process somewhere in a big warehouse, with my whole team, and we'd all be doing it together, so you've got to make it fun in your own ways. and at 11pm at night, when you've been trying kit on for four hours, that was the only way i could do it! watching her races on the tv back home is nerve—racking stuff for family and friends. i rarely actually see the first race. i have to watch it afterwards because i'll be hiding behind my hands or something. it's just too nerve—racking to watch. and you must be a proud brother? yeah, i suppose so. i mean, everyone sees- all the glitz and glamour of it, but i'm the one who's- chasing her to do her e—mails and everything every day, - so i've got the behind—the—scenes, which takes the shine off it a bit.
but, no, it all comes| to a good conclusion. i guess for tokyo, the target is coming home with two golds. that's definitely the plan, yeah. i mean, currently, there's no reason why i can't do that. and i always think if you're going to go for anything, why would it not be gold? so, yeah, that's what i would like, but we'll see what happens. she's been looking strong this year, retaining her 400 metre british champion title injune. you certainly wouldn't bet against her achieving those golden goals. cockroft taking this one! sally hurst, bbc news. yeah, got to love the kit trying on videos! staying with the paralympics, and dame sarah storey says she's as excited as ever as she heads off to her eighth games. if the 14—time gold medallist manages to defend her three titles in cycling's individual pursuit, time trial and road race, she will become the most successful british paralympian of all time. but does that legacy bring extra pressure? certainly on the morning of the race, you have got that big
juggernaut of success behind you and you want to continue to add to that. but it is also an opportunity to prove to yourself that the training you have been doing has been in the right direction, that all of that work you have been doing is going to go to a great performance. iamjust as i am just as excited about the race as the uncertainty it might bring. yeah, i think it is really important to focus on the positives and life will go on after regardless of the result. now in a few minutes' time, there will be a repeat of this year's world championship snooker final when mark selby takes on shaun murphy in the opening round of the british open. the match will be particularly special for selby, who will be walking out at a first major event in his home city of leicester as world champion. charlie slater has been to meet "the jester from leicester". and a very worthy winner, mark selby, world super doll next —— champion! -- champion! i can... what i can dream of — -- champion! i can... what i can dream of a- _ -- champion! i can... what i can dream of a. talked _ -- champion! i can... what i can dream of a. talked away - -- champion! i can... what i can dream of a. talked away in - -- champion! i can... what i can dream of a. talked away in the l -- champion! i can... what i can . dream of a. talked away in the back room _ dream of a. talked away in the back room of— dream of a. talked away in the back
