the table this evening. the african cup of nations got under way this afternoon with the hosts cameroon opening the tournament with a win. they had to fight hard for it, though, after going behind to burkina faso. gustavo sangare with the first goal. what a goal it was. but two penalties in a frantic end to the first half, both scored by cameroon captain vincent aboubakar, was enough. the second game in group a is ethiopia against cape verde, which kicks off in a few minutes' time. it was nervy, it was testy, but england got thejob done in sydney. they hung on for a draw in the fourth ashes test against australia, who were bearing down on another victory. the result ends australia's hopes of a 5—0 whitewash. patrick gearey reports. the relentless march of the australians. on day five, they hunt. ten wickets to get. all too often, haseeb hameed goes first. that's got him. yet there was a strange calm
about sydney, and about zak crawley. under pressure for his place but batting in a bubble, untroubled. he made 77 before it popped. that's out. three down, but look up, it was getting darker. the rain took seven overs out of the match. having been helped by the clouds, england needed their stars. the injured ben stokes, batting in such pain that every run stung... ..and joe root, their captain, but half an hour from tea—time... oh, it's found an edge. that was big. joe root knew it — england had to forget it. after all, they were soon in the final session with stokes still there, wounded side, willing heart, butjust at the wrong moment, he was betrayed by a touch. oh, there he goes. a different kind of hurt, because now the door was open and pat cummins was charging through it. mark wood fell just afterjos buttler. down to the sharp end, 13 balls left, two wickets left. oh, it's got him! whenjack leach became one of them. australia sensed blood,
england perhaps deja vu — last ball to jimmy anderson to decide the test. he's done it. he's survived it. england have survived it... and breathe. this is a draw, not a victory, but england waved no white flag, so there will be no whitewash. patrick gearey, bbc news. well, there has been a lot of pressure on captainjoe root. and he said he was relieved and proud that england managed to draw the match and remove the possibility of another 5—0 defeat. coming into the game, i spoke a lot about putting some pride back into english cricket and into the test performances, and i think the fight and the desire and the character shown today and throughout the five days has done that in a small way. from the position that we found ourselves in at certain points within this game to be able to sit here, having drawn up at the start of today, it was always going to take a good performance. and really proud of the way the guys dug in and managed to do that. joe root there.

hoping to equal a club record in consecutive wins. the egalite officials spotted a foul in the build up to this try — no try. the tigers had dominated the first half and deserve the score that finally put them ahead, converted by george ford, 13—11 to leicester, but two second—half penalties put wasps back into the lead, 16—13 add those to him and try as they might, leicester could not rake them down, conceding a penalty with a final meaningful attack, wasps celebrated a harder to victory. —— hard earned victory. drew savage, bbc news. what a win for them. elsewhere, bottom side bath recorded their first premiership win of the season despite a gallant effort from worcester, who played almost the whole match with 1a men. 22—19, it finished. meanwhile, saracens moved to the top of the women's premier 15s table after a comprehensive 104—0 win over bottom side dmp durham sharks. in a completely one—sided affair,
