a big statement of intent from tiger woods this evening. he posted on twitter that he's on his way to augusta to continue his preparations for next week s masters. the 46—year—old who has won the tournament five times, most recently in 2019, has not competed on tour since nearly losing his right leg in a car crash ia months ago. australia were just too strong for england's cricketers in the women's world cup. the defending champions beaten by an outstanding australian side in christchurch. joe wilson reports. well, it was some journey to fight to the final having lost their first three games, but england faced australia — the green and gold everest of women's cricket. australia's opening batters haynes and healy soon excelled. down the ground... england needed theirfielding, their catching, to be perfect. it wasn't. and alyssa healy continued to play the innings of her life to make 170 in australia's 356.
well, england, follow that! a picturesque piece of christchurch, it was a monumental task, but nat sciver�*s brave batting maintained hope. others came and went. sophia dunkley bowled. sciver kept improvising. her 148 not out was outstanding. but when anya shrubsole fell chasing the last glimpse of the dream, england were 285 all out. that was the match — and the world cup. i think it will take a little bit of time to digest what went wrong, and i think also it's fair to say credit to australia, they outplayed us tonight, they brought their best game on the biggest stage, so fair play to them. these australians may be the most dominant team across world sport — they beat england here, they've beaten everyone for years. joe wilson, bbc news. the bbc�*s henry moeran was in christchurch along with former england player alex hartley. they look back now on an exciting tournament.
england's reign as champions ends after five years and part of the england side that won in 2017, alex hartley has been watching and this australia side were the favourites and the favourites for a reason. they were and today they proved why. they were fantastic, alyssa healy scoring 170 runs in a world cup final, take a bow, it was exceptional to watch and showed their dominance. england won the toss and elected to bowl first, did that hand the initiative to australia? we will talk about it for a few years, did heather knight and england do the right thing? england believed it was the right thing to do and i guess we have to believe that. personally, i would have batted first and tried to get a big score on the board to create pressure, a bit like australia did. australia are the champions but this tournament will be remembered for so many reasons, it has been the greatest women's world cup we have seen. definitely, it has been nailbiter after nailbiter, the
semi—finals were probably the two games in this world cup that were not the most exciting, but that is the way it goes, anybody can beat anyone at the moment, bar australia who are better than everyone, but it has been an exceptional tournament. australia are worthy winners, winning by 71 runs and they lift the trophy, joy and relief for their captain and now australia hold all the trophies, the t20 world cup, the 50 over world cup and the women's ashes, they are an inspiring side. well done to australia. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening. hello there. a big change is taking place in our weather. some places started on sunday morning with temperatures below
minus seven celsius, but monday morning will start on a much milder note, but with some damp and breezy weather, courtesy of a frontal system pushing in from the north west. it is a warm front, so, as the name suggests, behind it, the air will be turning warmer, or at least milder. this wedge of milder air spilling south eastwards across the uk dominating the weather as we head into monday. so, as we go through tonight, that frontal system will bring cloud and outbreaks of rain, moving south eastwards and particularly heavy rain over higher ground in western scotland and after a chilly evening in the south, temperatures will tend to climb through the night, so by monday morning, 6—11. a very, very different feel, with lots of cloud, some outbreaks of rain, some heavy bursts of rain, clearing southwards through the morning and then in england and wales, they are seeing something a little drier, still with a lot of cloud, the odd spot of drizzle, limited brightness, showery rain then returning to northern and western scotland and parts of northern ireland, as we go through the afternoon.
top temperatures typically 11—15 , so milder than it has been, colder than that, though, across the far north in shetland and as we move out of monday into tuesday, we bring this weather front southwards. this is a cold front, so it tries to reintroduce some cold air. now, at this stage, it looks like the cold air will not make a lot of progress southwards, so most of us stay with mild conditions. some brightness down towards the south, generally quite a lot of cloud, outbreaks of rain especially between northern england, northern ireland and southern scotland and then on the northern edge of that weather system, well, remember that cold air? it is likely that we will see some snow, especially over the high ground, in the highlands, and the grampians. we could be looking at 10—20 centimetres of snow, particularly as we head into tuesday night. just four or 5 degrees here on tuesday afternoon, four in aberdeen, ten in glasgow and from glasgow, edinburgh southwards, we stay in the mild air. through tuesday night into wednesday, this area of low pressure moves its way eastwards, deepening as it goes, there will be some brisk winds, still some snow in northern scotland, lost three showers elsewhere on wednesday in that cold air tries to sink further south
as we head towards the end of the week, there could be some further wintry weather for some. this is bbc news ? welcome if you re watching here in the uk or around the globe. i m shaun ley, our top stories. international condemnation of what appears to be the systematic killing of ukrainian civilians by retreating russian forces. explosions in the southern port of odesa — ukrainian officials say missiles have hit critical infrastructure. the city's mayor condemns the attack. translation: windows were blown out. roofs were damaged in private houses. that happened in the second strike. in the first strike the enemy attacked peaceful residential houses. three homes were destroyed today. polling stations
