a nailbiter at lord's, as england look to save the second test. is this the end of an era? at the age of 40, can federer return to the top after his latest knee operation? tom daley�*s also considering his future, but what an inspiration he has been so far. any young kids out there that feel like they're never going to achieve anything just because of who they are, they know that, with hard work, you can achieve anything, no matter who you are, where you come from. hello there. welcome along. what a brilliant's days _ hello there. welcome along. what a brilliant's days cricket _ hello there. welcome along. what a brilliant's days cricket we _ hello there. welcome along. what a brilliant's days cricket we have - brilliant's days cricket we have had, and they are still going at lord's, just. england's hopes of victory were ended pretty quickly with some brilliant batting from india. it is the taurus now pushing for the

ollie robinson in particular, but about 20 minutes ago ollie robinson came the eighth wicket to fall, leaving india about half an hour to take the final two wickets, and if i just look over my shoulder, towards the big screen, and train my ears to what is going on inside lord's, the big screen, and train my ears to what is going on inside lords, i think i'm on to tell you the tenth wicket has been taken, the players are shaking hands, india are so the rating victory in this test match stop what you are spot on, you predicted it. == stop what you are spot on, you predicted it— predicted it. -- there was that roar. in predicted it. -- there was that man in the — predicted it. -- there was that roar. in the taking _ predicted it. -- there was that roar. in the taking a _ predicted it. -- there was that roar. in the taking a lead - predicted it. -- there was that roar. in the taking a lead in i predicted it. -- there was that l roar. in the taking a lead in the first one was drawn, the rain scuppered india there. —— india taking the first one. they head onto headingley next with their tails up. they head onto headingley next with their tails up— their tails up. definitely, i was thinkin: their tails up. definitely, i was thinking earlier— their tails up. definitely, i was thinking earlier of _ their tails up. definitely, i was thinking earlier of a _ their tails up. definitely, i was thinking earlier of a word - their tails up. definitely, i was thinking earlier of a word to i their tails up. definitely, i was . thinking earlier of a word to really sum up the indian dynamic amongst disc above players, and ethic it has to be resilience. because if using a

michael vaughan very critical ofjoe roofs michael vaughan very critical ofjoe root�*s tactics in the field. joe wilson, live from lord's, india winning that second test to take a lead in the series. we've got the last few matches this week before the hundred comes to a close. southern brave women were already sure of a place in saturday's final, the oval invincibles guaranteed a spot in friday's eliminator, so not an awful lot riding on the game. brave kept up their good form. he won it. —— they won it. sophia dunkley scored an unbeaten 58. lost their last 1a wickets as the clubs for just 85 their last 1a wickets as the clubs forjust 85 all their last 1a wickets as the clubs for just 85 all out. they're going to have to up their game in that eliminator. you will have seen in the news how the taliban regime have re—gained control in afghanistan. before they were overthrown 20 years ago, the islamist group restricted the freedoms of afghan women,
