Watson hits back at Wood jibe


Mr Watson is asked for his response, and in true Aussie spirit he replies: "I heard about it this morning. I can't remember it at all. I don't even know when it was.

"I'm normally not that impressed with bowlers bouncing me too much in the nets anyway. I just hope he knows how to be able to bat properly, because we've got a few fast bowlers as well who don't mind bowling quite fast, so it'll be interesting to see how he goes."

Should be well worth listening to and it is all part of a packed programme with Mark Pougatch and Kelly Cates from 19:00 BST.

Mark Wood on 5 live Sport

England fast bowler Mark Wood

In 5 live Sport tonight at 21:30 BST there will be an interview with England fast bowler Mark Wood, who recalls bowling to Australia batsman Shane Watson in the nets.

Wood was instructed to bounce Watson by his Australia team mate Mike Hussey and says: "I let him have one, he gloved it and didn't give me the best of looks. Next ball, Hussey said 'give it him again', so I bumped him again and this time he absolutely smoked it.

"He picked up the ball, threw it back down the wicket at me and called me a 'net hero'."

The player spent three years with Yeovil and four seasons with Exeter.

There is set to be a minute's applause at St James Park on 8 August in both the seventh and ninth minutes of the match representing the numbers he wore with each club.

Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon says

he will not spend money he does not have and put the newly promoted club at risk.

Andy Mangan, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Jermaine Grandison have not yet signed new contracts and may have to leave because the club are close to their budget.

"The pie is only so big, that's all I have," Mellon told BBC Radio Shropshire. "I can't suddenly look behind Joe Hart's picture in the boardroom and find a bank vault with millions of pounds in it."

Bell-Drummond's century against Australia was the seventh of his first-class career

Kent batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond says scoring a century against Australia

ranks as the best day of career.

The 21-year-old scored 127 off 112 balls on the final day of their tour match, which Australia won by 255 runs.

"It was a brilliant day. It's easily the best day of my life, cricket-wise," he told BBC Radio Kent.

"Normally I go nuts but when I hit the hundred I didn't know what to do. I was on another planet thinking 'what is going on?'."

Euan Broderick: £16m for Danny Welbeck, he's fast, strong and can dribble, but can't shoot, explains why only four goals this season.

Chris Dobson: Arsenal for buying Anelka at £500k then sell £23m, but then using £11m of that to buy Thierry Henry. Bargain.

Barbados out for fielding ineligible player


Barbados have been eliminated from the 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament and fined 6,000 Swiss francs for fielding an ineligible player against Aruba on 14 June.

Fifa ordered Barbados on Monday to forfeit their 1-0 win in the second leg of their second-round match and Aruba were awarded a 3-0 victory by default, meaning they advanced 3-2 on aggregate.

The Fifa disciplinary committee ruled that Barbados fielded Hadan Holligan, who scored the only goal in the 14 June match, when he should have served a one-match ban for receiving yellow cards in two previous games.

Morgan Calton: Fulham signing Zat Knight from Rushall Olympic for a set of tracksuits. Bargain. He was worth twice that.

Andrew Neill: Newcastle getting £35m for Andy Carroll was good. Or would have been had we then reinvested the money. Fee irrelevant if you don't spend it.

Paul: The double transfer of Nigel Reo-Coker and Marlon Harewood from West Ham to Aston Villa for £12m was pretty good. Did nothing afterwards.

Gavin Jessop: Man Utd buying Juan Sebastian Veron for silly money, realising he not built for the Premier League then selling him to Chelsea for silly money.

Simon Williams: Has to be Torres to Chelsea for £50m.

James Pedersen: Bolton got £500,000 for Didi Hamann, who never actually played for them. Hard to beat that.

Tom Catton: Wolves getting rid of Henri Camara. Bought for £1.5m, loaned to Celtic for £1.5m, sold for £3m to Wigan.

Dr Olufemi: Chelsea selling David Luiz to PSG for £50m is just about the best business any club could hope for.

Duckett ton bolsters Northants

Northants 274-4 v Lancashire

Ben Duckett's 134 laid the foundation for a sizeable first-innings total by Northants on the opening day of their game against Division Two leaders Lancashire at Old Trafford.

The opener hit two sixes and 19 fours before falling lbw to left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan (2-54), who also accounted for Rob Keogh.

Tykes in command

Yorkshire 557-6 dec v Durham 41-2

BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson

at Chester-le-Street:

"It has been a day of records here as Yorkshire's Jonny Bairstow and Tim Bresnan set a new County Championship seventh-wicket best with a stand of 366.

"It broke a record set in 1902 in a match between Sussex and Essex and it was also the highest stand for any wicket against Durham, who failed to take a wicket since play began and never really looked doing so.

"Bairstow made 219 not out and Bresnan 169 not out, both career bests and at tea, Durham were predictably struggling after losing both openers inside 10 overs."
