    "But Adam Rossington and Josh Cobb added 46 unbeaten runs to ease the pressure."

  69. Honours even at Lord's

    Cricket: County Championship Division One

    Lord's

    BBC London 94.9's Kevin Hand at Lord's:

    Warwickshire 216-5 v Middlesex (day two)

    "It was an even morning at Lord's but Warwickshire will be the happier of the sides as they reach lunch on the second day of this rain affected match on 216-5.

    "Only 68 runs were added with two wickets falling in the 26 overs that were possible in between a couple of brief showers.

    "The greenish pitch is offering a great deal of assistance to the bowlers but a tremendous spell from the seam pairing of Steven Finn and Toby Roland-Jones to open the first hour was hampered by a ball that was already 50 overs old at the start of play."

  70. Roy smashes century for Surrey

    Cricket: County Championship Division Two

    BBC London 94.9's Mark Church at The Oval:

    Surrey 289-4 v Lancashire (day two)

    Jason Roy

    "He has scored 111 before lunch with a range of scintillating shots. At the other end Steven Davies has sensibly moved onto 71 and the partnership is worth 215.

  72. Leicestershire find going tough

    Cricket: County Championship Division Two

    BBC Radio Leicester's Richard Rae at Chelmsford:

    Essex 166, Leicestershire 102-2 (lunch, day two)

    "Steady, if unspectacular, progress is being made by Leicestershire in their first innings after bowling out Essex yesterday.

    "While conditions are easier for batting than they were on Sunday, there is still plenty in the pitch for the bowlers, and the Essex seamers have worked hard and been rewarded with two wickets - those of Matt Boyce and Ned Eckersley. Angus Robson is grafting it out on 43 from 114 balls, and Foxes' skipper Mark Cosgrove is still playing himself in.

    "The clouds are beginning to gather rather menacingly, but the crowd, watching the various school parties playing impromptu games on the outfield, and listening to the "Hot Jazz" band, is happy enough."

  73. Sussex on top at Trent Bridge

    Cricket: County Championship Division One

    BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle at Trent Bridge:

    Notts 63-6 v Sussex (day one)

    "Sussex enjoyed the better of a rain-shortened morning. After winning the toss and inserting the hosts, Sussex's opening bowlers exploited the seam-friendly conditions to reduce Notts to 34-4 in the opening hour.

    "Steve Magoffin had two successful lbw shouts, removing Brendan Taylor for nine - his sixth straight dismissal in that manner - and James Taylor for nought.

    Chris Jordan

    "Chris Jordan (pictured) showed his athleticism to spring to his left to take a sharp one-handed caught-and-bowled offering from Steven Mullaney, before nipping one back to uproot two of Alex Hales' stumps.

    "After a 25-minute rain delay, Magoffin struck twice more, finding the edge to have Riki Wessels caught behind for seven and Samit Patel taken at slip for 17."

    David Strettle

    Clermont Auvergne have confirmed the signing of England winger David Strettle from Saracens on a three-year deal.

    The 31-year-old helped Sarris to the Premiership title on Saturday as they beat Bath 28-16.

    Strettle was recently recalled to the England squad by head coach Stuart Lancaster, but will be ineligible to play for his country once he moves across the Channel.

  131. Cech and the snoozing koala

    Football

    Remember Jose and the kangaroo from earlier (08:58)?

    Well, the wildlife fun continues for Chelsea on their end-of-season tour in Australia, with keeper Petr Cech tweeting this photo of himself with a koala bear.

    Cech

    Unfortunately for Cech, his koala pal remained asleep throughout his visit.

    Mind you, that's hardly a surprise: because they get so little energy from their diet - which consists mainly of eucalypt leaves - koalas must limit their energy use and sleep 20 hours a day.

  132. Agnew on the Test

    Cricket

    Here's the view of BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew before day four.

    "If New Zealand do win this match, no-one will begrudge them a share of the series, because they are a team that are very easy to like.

    "They respect the game and their opponents and simply seem to enjoy playing. What a shame they are only playing two Tests."

    Agnew also bemoans sloppiness in the field by England, saying it has cost them.

    Speaking of the cricket, let's recap the state of play ahead of the fourth day.

    An unbeaten BJ Watling hundred left New Zealand in a strong position at Headingley, with England facing a huge task to win the second Test.

    Martin Guptill and Brendon McCullum also made half-centuries as the Black Caps closed day three on 338-6, a lead of 338.

    That represented a fightback from 23-2, aided by England dropping three catches.

    England were earlier taken to 350 all out by a rapid 46 from Stuart Broad, as the first-innings scores ended level.

  134. Live coverage coming up

    Something to look out for... two live text commentaries start on the BBC Sport website at 10:00 BST.

  135. 'I've been once before'

    Football

    More on the news that Dutchman Marinus Dijkhuizen has been hired by Brentford to replace departed head coach Mark Warburton.

    Dijkhuizen, whose experience of British football extends to a 10-game loan spell at Dunfermline as a player in 2000-01, told the Championship club's website: "I have been to Brentford once before, with my father and brother, to see a game against Coventry City in March 2014.

    "We stood on the terrace behind the goal and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of football. There was some very good play.

    "We also loved the ambiance in and around the stadium. That is football at its best. I am looking forward to working with everyone at the club for a bright future."

    Dane Kjeldsen (76), England's Eddie Pepperell (69) and Austrian Bernd Wiesberger (73) all finished two under.

    The trio then played the par-five 18th at Royal County Down, with Kjeldsen recording a birdie to clinch victory.

    A sell-out crowd of 20,000 attended the event for the fourth consecutive day, despite several of the world's leading stars failing to shine, including Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia, who both missed the cut.

    According to as.com, Benítez told reporters "I am ready, I can't wait to be there", as he departed the Marina di Castelo hotel next to Napoli's training facilities, which has been his home for the past two years.

    Benítez's arrival is scheduled for 11.30pm (BST) and - according to the website - once in Spain, the former Liverpool manager will finalise his new contract before the announcement of his arrival at Real Madrid and his presentation takes place on Wednesday.

  139. Not your average team photo

    Football

    You know the score with team photos. The players dress in their kit, they sit on some plastic chairs in the centre circle, the photographer snaps them, and then the same slightly dull picture appears in countless papers and magazine.

    So take a bow the lads at Zenit St Petersburg ... for this is what they've done.

    Zeni St Petersburg

    The Russian club, managed by former Chelsea and Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas, won their domestic league with two games to spare last weekend and celebrated by dressing in traditional Russian clothing.

    This picture was posted by former Manchester City player Javi Garcia on Instagram, and features former Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin, surrounding Villas-Boas (centre).

    Zenit's title win, the fourth in their history, came in Villas-Boas's first full season in charge.

    Championship club Brentford have named Excelsior manager Marinus Dijkhuizen as their new head coach.

    Former Bees boss Mark Warburton, 52, left Griffin Park at the end of the season.

    Dijkhuizen, who guided Excelsior to 15th in the Dutch Eredivisie last season - the club failing to win any of its final nine matches, will have Roy Hendriksen as his assistant.

    Chelsea have jetted to Australia for an end-of-season tour, and it looks like boss Jose Mourinho has taken a liking to the local wildlife.

    Twitter

    The Blues gaffer was introduced to a kangaroo in Sydney, as these pictures on Chelsea's Twitter page show.

    Given a kangaroo can reach speeds of over 35mph and jump six feet in the air, might be worth a punt up front next season.

  144. All hell breaks loose

    Football

    In scenes reminiscent of Hagler v Hearns circa 1985, Rangers' Tunisian defender Bilel Mohsni responded to a push at the final whistle by Motherwell's Lee Erwin by aiming a kick and punch at the striker.

    getty

    He then tussled with Motherwell's unused substitute Fraser Kerr, before all three players were shown red cards by Craig Thomson after the match.

    Scottish Professional Football League officials will meet the Scottish FA and the police today to discuss the incident.

  145. Rangers denied

    Football

    Motherwell have preserved their Premiership status courtesy a second comfortable win over Rangers in four days.

    Leading 3-1 from the first leg of the play-off final, the Fir Park side stretched their advantage through a deflected shot from Marvin Johnson.

    getty

    Another ricochet from a Lionel Ainsworth's strike doubled the lead and John Sutton added a late penalty to secure a 3-0 victory - and a 6-1 win on aggregate.

    That, though, wasn't the full story...

  146. 'He's so confident'

    Tennis

    Murray's opponent Jeremy Chardy, is certainly respectful of the Brit.

    "He's so confident, because he didn't lose a match on clay," said Chardy, reflecting on Murray's recent form - unbeaten in 13 matches on the surface this year.

    getty

    "I played against him in Rome. I played a good match, but still I lost 6-4 6-3. After he beat me, he pulled out from Rome to be fresh for Roland Garros, and I think for him it's a big goal.

    "So it will be a really tough match. In the past we always said 'Andy doesn't like to play on clay', but now I think everybody changed and he likes more now to play on clay."

    Indeed. Bodes well, though we're British so we know better than to get our hopes up.

  147. Murray time

    Tennis

    There is plenty going on in the world of sport today, but one of the main events is Andy Murray.

    The British number one takes on Frenchman Jeremy Chardy for a place in the French Open quarter-finals in the second match on Court Suzanne Lenglen starting at around 11:30-12:00 BST.
