    "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)

    "It has been quite a morning - Jason Roy started the day 21 not out and goes to lunch unbeaten on 132.

    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.

    "I'm not sure there is much more the Lancashire bowlers could have done this morning. It has just been inspired."

  71. Taylor agrees Swans deal


    Defender Neil Taylor has extended his stay with Swansea after agreeing a new four-year contract.


    The 26-year-old, who had been linked with West Brom, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, had 12 months remaining on his existing deal but has ended any speculation about his future.

  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."

  74. Federer in charge against Monfils


    Roger Federer is now two sets to one ahead in his fourth-round match at the French Open against Gael Monfils. Elsewhere, Andy Murray is 3-1 down early in the second set against Jeremy Chardy.

    Cricket: County Championship Division Two


    So it is lunch at Headingley, and also in the County Championship matches.

    Here's BBC Radio Solent's Kevan James from the Ageas Bowl.

    Hampshire 222 all out v Worcestershire

    "Worcestershire's continued discipline with the ball caused Hampshire problems.

    "They lost six wickets for 103 this morning and from a position of 88-0 at one stage yesterday afternoon, they lost all 10 wickets for 134.

    "On a pitch offering help Hampshire tried to be more positive this morning but struggled against the visitors' accuracy as Joe Leach took 5-63."

    England v New Zealand

    Alastair Cook

    Rugby Union

    Wales winger George North has been speaking to BBC Sport about his recovery from a series of head injuries.

    North says he is through his concussion problems and has been cleared to resume full training.


    "I'm allowed to start training fully, but there's no rugby to be played so it's a bit of a blessing that I won't take contact for another few weeks now which is even better for my recovery," he said.

    "It is frustrating, but it's not been a bad frustration because you know you have only got one head. Northampton have been amazing with me from minute one. When you only have one head you don't mess around with that."

  78. Hair-raising


    And our next contender...

    FC Schalke 04

    French Open

    Andy Murray

    As we said, it has been a perfect start to Andy Murray's fourth-round match with Jeremy Chardy as the Brit took the first set 6-4.

    If successful, Murray would play either Marin Cilic or David Ferrer in the quarter-finals. Seventh seed Ferrer has taken the opening two sets against the ninth seed.

    More from Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri. He says:"Barcelona (pictured above) play a different brand of football to that of other teams. We'll need to be compact and keep it tight.

    "We have to be prepared for the chance of penalties but I think it would be difficult for the match to end in penalties.

    "This season will go down in history. It's not often a team gets to this point in three separate competitions. There is a great mood in the camp and only five days to go. Let's see if we're able to make this season even more extraordinary."

    We said Andy Murray had started well and we were proved right.

    One break of serve proved enough for the Brit to take the opening set of his fourth round clash against Jeremy Chardy 6-4.

    Victory will take Murray into the French Open quarter-finals.

  84. Dogolski


    Sorry about that rather scary picture. To make up for it, here's a dog.

    Lukas Podolski's dog

    Lukas Podolski's to be exact, dressed in an Inter Milan shirt, and dubbed 'dogolski' in a tweet by the German star.

    The on-loan Arsenal striker came on as a late substitute as Inter beat Empoli 4-3 in the last game of the Serie A season.

    Isle of Man TT

    TT history maker Ian Hutchinson has signed for Prodigy front man Keith Flint's Team Traction Control for the 2015 Isle of Man TT races.

    The Bingley racer had been due to compete for Tsingtao Racing on an MV Agusta but the team has opted to skip the event to continue development.

    Carlos Tevez

    "Carlos Tevez has been exceptional since he joined us," said Marchisio. "He has not created any problems, he has been humble and available for everybody. He is one of the main strengths of our squad and is an important pillar. He will be fundamental on Saturday.

    "We need to stay focused, we know we face a good Barcelona team and three exceptional strikers who have scored 120 goals between them, a record in Spain. We need to prepare well for the match."

  89. Murray breaks early


    Andy Murray's fourth round French Open clash with Jeremy Chardy is under way.

    Juventus news conference

    Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has been talking to the media looking ahead to Saturday's Champions League final against Barcelona.

  93. England need a world record


    New Zealand have decided enough is enough. After a morning of frantic scoring, they have declared on 454-8.

    So a nice easy task for Alastair Cook's England side. They need 455 to win, which would be a new world record for a successful run chase.

    Alternatively, they can bat slowly for the rest of today and all of tomorrow to get the draw. This is the second and final Test in the series with England leading 1-0 overall.
