world cup winnerjason roy though will make his test debut along with olly stone. joe wilson reports from lord's. if this is the warm up day before the actions when i met tess mosca might say to me very warm. they had seenjames might say to me very warm. they had seen james anderson go might say to me very warm. they had seenjames anderson go through his drills and routines, separate from the rest of the squad, england saying very cautious by not taking them for this match, and they remain confident that he will be fit for the ashes, but it presents opportunity individually against them for ali, the fast bowler and indeed for the spin bolero jack, collectively, big opportunity for england time to build on the level of interest that currently is in cricket. following the well cop, that's a point but to the test match captainjoe that's a point but to the test match captain joe route. that's a point but to the test match captain joe route. i think the most important thing for me, and the message to the squad is to play with
huge amounts of pride and passion and intensity. while the intensity this week will set a tone for the rest of the summer, as long as we apply ourselves in the right matter —— minorand go into apply ourselves in the right matter —— minor and go into the game, exactly like that, we will give a dead account of ourselves and i do believe that. maybe nothing ever at lloyd's will live up to our match the drama that will cut final, but they just the drama that will cut final, but theyjust imagine for a second, if ireland were too win a test match for the first time, right here, surely that something their captain must be imagining. the scene great sporting results for irish sport where the air individually and the up where the air individually and the up and are collectively as an six nations in roughly over the years, if ireland were to end this test match do you think it would exceed anything that irish sport has achieved? i think it's big to say that in terms of cricket, yes, it will be and i think will keep
pushing back and keep the price file ( come and be pushing back and keep the price file (come and be strong to say that we can be and get a following, but i would not say that if he won the te st would not say that if he won the test match it'll be the greatest thing we achieving irish sport, but its price cricket others, it be. thing we achieving irish sport, but its price cricket others, it bell cite its price cricket others, it be.” cite a kevin o'brien lynn bring up, sending english mines railing back to the well cop eight years ago, when his scintillating hitting lead toa when his scintillating hitting lead to a victory for ireland over england. different medication, different format, yes. but what —— cricket has learned one thing, it never pays to underestimate ireland. the russian boxing federation say they've opened an investigation into the death of maxim dadashev. the talented us—based russian died following injuries he sustained in his ibf light—welterweight contest with subriel matias in maryland at the weekend. dadashev was hospitalised with bleeding on the rain dadashev was hospitalised with bleeding on the brain and underwent emergency surgery
but failed to recover. the russian federation have suggested there was some sort of violation adding "we need to know the truth about what happened". there will be an official home coming this evening in county offaly for the newly crowned open golf champion — shane lowry. the irishman, who splits his time between ireland and florida, won his first major at royal port rush on sunday and says his next target is a place in europe's ryder cup team. to be honest, i actually, and i look at this morning to let over and others it was hard to believe, i feel very lucky it's happened to me, a lot went in, i didn't know if i was going to achieve anything like this, and yet it's amazing. we can hit the reset button and get back to practise and then set new goals because obviously i had goals at the beginning of the year and pretty much fulfilled right now, so yeah, i
need to set new goals for the rest of the year. hopefully open championship will come back here, at least before i'm 60 so i can play another game, yeah, iwould least before i'm 60 so i can play another game, yeah, i would love to see it back here and left to see the ryder cup in ireland, there are a few people try to make it happen at the minute so yet that would be nice. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the conservative commentator, tim montgomerie and chief executive of the cross—party think tank demos, polly mackenzie.
many of tomorrow's front pages are already in — and they are dominated by borisjohnson‘s win in the conservative leadership contest. the i says borisjohnson will be appointed as the uk's 77th prime minister tomorrow afternoon with a promise to deliver brexit, and unify the nation. the metro carrys a picture of mrjohnson saluting the party faithful outside conservative hq - and it references the dude acronym which the new conservative leader referred to in his acceptance speech. the telegraph looks ahead to boris johnson's first day in number ten with the new prime minister set to appoint the most ethnically diverse cabinet ever — and more women in senior positions. the times also previews tomorrow's cabinet reshuffle — the paper suggests priti patel is set for a return to government as home secretary. the guardian says mrjohnson has fulfilled a long—life ambition in becoming prime minister.
the mail asks for boris johnson to let the sun shine on the uk by delivering brexit. and, finally for the mirror — boris johnson's appointment as prime minister is no laughing matter. well, there really is only one topic of discussion on different pages this evening, tomorrow, so let's go for it, because the papers had lots of different angles as you would expect them to you, so let's start with the times, the front page of the times, johnson goes to work and it looks ahead to his cabinet. a big rumour that seems to be covered in a few of the papers which might be true is that priti patel might be coming back as home secretary, one of the most senior positions in the cabinet. and borisjohnson has had lots of criticism through the leadership contest for some of his
insensitivity on racial issues, and whether it's a response tonight or something he wants to do anyway, i think commitment to put some of the ethnic minority members of the conservative party at the top of government well, i think an answer to that, i think it'll send a message to lots of people in britain that the conservative party is different from what it was, and that boris is still that metropolitan liberal mayor london that people remember head and eyes, although he's back brexit, beyond brexit he is going to be a one nation style of leader. interesting though that there are two sides to boris johnson, the controversial list, as a journalist who has written things about ethnic minority people and some i found very offensive and also asked him if saying, someone who seems to embrace the diversity of life —— will stop a reasonable fear is that he has an incredible talent for knowing what to make him popular in that particular moment. in that
i’ooiti in that particular moment. in that room an audience that when he was writing a column in the telegraph, i think you have 15 years ago, it is perfectly happy calling gay people bomb blaze, that he absolutely was one of the first to champion equal —— because he knows it'll work for him now but if that recipe for tremendous political success or whether reality is that prime minister dale office, where you cannotjust minister dale office, where you cannot just change your mind for every audience or article actually sort of prevent him from succeeding. he's only, he sort of dances i on political opinions and he will say anything and do anything that could bea anything and do anything that could be a recipe success, or disaster. the other interesting story i'm not sure if it's in this paper, is that a p pa re ntly sure if it's in this paper, is that apparently boris's is offering jeremy hunt defence secretary which was turned down and unless he sees a
foreign secretary or that level, jeremy hunt will go and of course this is the problem with the shuffles, boris may have a perfect picture of what he wants, but if one piece in the puzzle kinda falls away in some way, jeremy hunt is a big piece and not conservative puzzle, it all becomes quite chaotic and reshuffling has really undone many of the prime ministers of the past. people had been in government for number of years you think you knew how to do it but they really made enemies through these reshuffles, so thatjeremy hunt position is probably the most important one along side it would be his chancellor. that there are suggestions that sajid javid and liz truss are in competition for that role and given how strong rumours are about both of them getting the job, it's clear when it then will be sorely disappointed. daily telegraph, i suppose what it really
says a lot about his style that, doesn't a? and being headlined, i'm the dude? i'm not sure about that, but this is typical boris though, you know, he is not going to be a conventional prime minister. i think he's going to be like the chairman of the board. why what we've been discussing his baby and his cabinet is more important than normal is that unlike trees are made as a control freak and i don't think they trusted our ministers, he will allow them to get on with theirjobs, and he will be a person who probably the spent a lot of my time on phrases like this. this wont have been something he would have thought of on the spur of the moment. he will co nsta ntly on the spur of the moment. he will constantly as a columnist is been in the telegraph of the years, you will spend lots of time thinking about the messages he's going to deliver to the nation and whether it works
oi’ to the nation and whether it works or not, it dude is a message he wa nted or not, it dude is a message he wanted us to talk about tonight.” think challenges are that david cameron came in, with this fear that he is prime minister and he would delegate asjustice he is prime minister and he would delegate as justice minister he is prime minister and he would delegate asjustice minister is and allow them to run their departments at night to fear. but the problem was it didn't work out. in the end he had to build a big kind of prime minister delivery unit style operation a number ten to drive the delivery, and beyond bright brexit which we know is incredibly difficult to deliver, boris johnson has started sending out a policy and house—building. you can't do that without the chance of being involved or planning to vote —— planning department. and so, already you can see tensions and difficulties. he said this about social care, that the combination of pensions and ministers health care minister and
local government ministers and again whoever he appoints as chancellor. so the aba you can stand back and be a chairman as you can in opposition i think, charlie cabinet he was often described as a chairman of kind of shadow cabinet at the rivals, it was fine. but can you his promise to do that and i think that the big question really.” promise to do that and i think that the big question really. i don't agree really because i think any coordination across government. you don't need to prime minister to be immersed necessarily. you do because those disputes can be visceral. perhaps my experience is coloured by the fact that in a coalition government, of chris out of the tensions between ministers come with a political spectrum, but actually, you know, blair and brown had tensions, which frankly surpassed... a that prime minister only needs to be involved when it becomes a disputed issue. but it happens all
the time, i was in a phase when i was reading every piece of cabinet correspondence, about 200 300 e—mailsa correspondence, about 200 300 e—mails a day, where they are discussing issues of policy, and the ministers tried to stop and prevent each other and had things taken away, all the time and the prime minister has a big stack of paper is to look through every single night. it isn't an easyjob. and i don't think that the way to do it without taking responsibility for dispute resolution all the time. fascinating, and borisjohnson is not known at the details man. they cannot take you to the first page of the daily mayor, which gives size at the daily mayor, which gives size at the other aspect of borisjohnson, that the buffoon or clown deliberately is shown and that's pa rt deliberately is shown and that's part of his public persona, ten is is now going to be what ever you think that they do, you may think it's funny or inappropriate, can this go on being part of his persona
now that he's prime minister?” think it's going to continue, the mirror is labour supporting newspaper, and polly and i were discussing this earlier, and decided painting him as a bit of a joker is clearly the way to her ten and the conservatives, i don't think either of us are sure it's the right strategy as you do want to defeat them, i think the democrats even in america are tackling time for the wrong things a focus on the inaccuracies in his tweets and etc. like donald trump the fact is, most people think rightly or wrongly politicians don't tell the truth. when people asked interest in america is in building the wall he promised to build. it is a pretty good just on the supreme court of the cutting taxes. boris is a few things to do, brett said, rebuilding the infrastructure in the north. if he fails on this, he will fail as
prime minister and labour and the daily mirror, they should focus on that. and because it is entertaining, most people like the side of boris. this only becomes a problem if he is doing this instead delivering. so in a sense of time will tell you now polly can i get you to look at the front page of the eye, power at last, this is another criticism i suppose of boris johnson, that what he's interested in is is himself and how about ambition. of course is all about ambition, he wanted to be prime minister, i every mp, a tiny bit sociopathic. blue max again, i don't think there's any point attacking him forfull. think there's any point attacking him for full. i think it's any point andl him for full. i think it's any point and i thank you for being ambitious. if he wasn't he wouldn't have a job but the question is whether he can deliver and whether this kind of long journey is taken to secure power can long journey is taken to secure powercan in
long journey is taken to secure power can in fact being that he delivers what he promised during the leave referendum. ithink looking delivers what he promised during the leave referendum. i think looking at the last three years, the real tragedy actually is not a lever, michael dull, who i had a soft spot for should have been appointed prime minister to carry through the promises they made in the leaf campaign. and we are now at this kind of clock having had to spend three years of basically nobody trusting teresa made strategies, because she was to romaine or whether it was good or not, now he has to take responsibility and a good thing is, whether he succeeds or fails, mailing can ensue good thing is, whether he succeeds orfails, mailing can ensue —— accusing him of that. only a minute left, but i want to go to the front page of this paper, because this is the big thing, brexit making a warning. yeah and this is the issue that will define his premiership. the idea that the warning is going to change the nature of politics,
i'm not sure it's a real one, people did not believe these economic forecasts any more. i don't think most people believe any economic forecast and whether you're a lever oi’ forecast and whether you're a lever ora forecast and whether you're a lever or a mainer, etc record now of economic turbulence and even i think a lot of a mainer as i had doubts about the expert class, but that's a danger, may be no deal will be a very risky thing, but i think because too many of international... when they make a real warning people don't believe it, but i'm not sure this is going to change the nature of the challenges boris faces. polly? exe political paradox of no deal, if that nobody will ever believe is going to be a disaster until it happened and it's too late and it is a disaster and that means that the more you talk at the danger is, in fact the more you alienate levers and the lead community by succumbing to this narrative, i
believe is economic forecasts, i believe is economic forecasts, i believe that windings of the experts in the details, but it's possible trial agreement which i was happy with, borisjohnson with trial agreement which i was happy with, boris johnson with this kind of blank stare, nice to persuade them to them to agree to it anyway. thank you very much. we'll be back at half past 11. that's it for the papers this hour. goodbye. the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you tim montgomerie and polly mackenzie. goodbye. hello. temperatures have been soaring across the uk.
all ready to record—breaking levels in some spots. tuesday saw a newjuly record injersey at maison st louis, 35.7 celsius. but before this hot spell is out, we'll see records falling elsewhere across the uk. thursday is set to be the peak of the heat. we will start off on a warm and sticky note on wednesday with the widespread thunderstorms across the northern half of the uk. some frequent lightning, hail stones and some pretty strong gusty winds. they will start to lose their intensity as they search further north across scotland, clearing all but the northern isles by the afternoon. then we are left with lots of sunshine, bit more a south—westerly breeze for this afternoon, so temperatures are a couple of degrees down in the west, but in the east we are still looking at hotspots preaching up to 32 or 33 degrees. but thursday, as we pick up the southerly flow, we could be talking about hitting that record.
