australia are underway in teh first test since the tampering australia are underway in the first test since the tampering scandal last year that led to david warner, steve smith and cameron bancroft being banned from international cricket. the first match in their three—test series with the world number one ranked side india is udneray in adelaide. chris mitchell is there. we will talk about what this means to the country, but what a start on the first day. absolute dream start. a few moments ago, india were 41—4, 15 minutes before lunch in adelaide. it is blisteringly hot and australia have got off to a very warm start indeed. their pace attack right on the money but the main story i have
to say of this morning is virat kohli, he has been and he has gone, out for three, one of the best catches you will ever see in test match cricket, usman khawaja off the bowling of patrick cummings. superb catch, superman like. fully extended, caught 1—handed in—flight, just brilliant. what was virat kohli doing, why was he wafting at a ball and ochoa or more outside off stump? he did it perhaps because he felt so confident in adelaide ash an acre. the last time he was here he scored two centuries in the test match —— an acre. he felt full of himself perhaps but he went down the tunnel into the changing rooms having scored only three runs. rahane was the last man out, 19—3 when kohli was out, rahane and pujara were doing well, nathan lyon came on to bowl, the spinner. it was calm, a
bit of respite and then rahane did the same thing, a ball way outside off stump, wafted his bat at it and caught behind. a poor start from india's fragile that, batting lineup. once again, they have the experience and the numbers behind them but so often getting caught out to the ball that bounces and seams a bit in the air and moves a bit in the air, and that's what it's been doing in adelaide. first round very much to australia. quickly, we know this is going on amid the backdrop of the bans handed out to the three australian cricket is. a lot of damage has been done, how do they get over that now? by winning here and winning in such a way that the australian public can be proud of them. not so much in sledging, certainly no ball—tampering and do it with good grace. that's what the australian fans want to see and it's
what they've seen so far this morning. all good so far for australia and australian cricket. more to come from chris. staying with cricket, pakistan have the upper hand in the deciding test of their series with new zealand. after three days in abu dhabi they're on top thanks to azhar ali, who top—scored with 134 as pakistan made 348 in the first innings. there was also a century for asad shafiq. he made 104 to gave pakistan a first innings lead of 7a. new zealand, who made 274 in theirfirst innings, start the fourth day in trouble on 26—2 in their second innings. they trail by 48 runs with eight wickets remaining with the series level at 1—1. jose mourinho praised manchester united's heart and soul in their 2—2 draw with arsenal on wednesday.
but he was still counting the cost of his side's mistakes. he shook hands on a draw but he will rue the goalkeeping error which allowed arsenal to open the scoring, before equalising through antony martial. substitute alexander lacazette put arsenal back in front only forjesse lingarrd to equalise a minute later. i'm happy with the soul, i'm happy with the things that we did. but again, we are not uniform, we are not consistent. there's always a moment where the team breaks, in our best moment, in the moment of our best moment, in the moment of our best control, the moment everyone was expecting the 2—1, the feeling where everyone was expecting to get us where everyone was expecting to get us ahead and we conceded the goal, the second goal for arsenal. us ahead and we conceded the goal, the second goalfor arsenal. it's really difficult but i think again, the feeling in the dressing room is, of course, frustration because we wa nt to of course, frustration because we want to win the match, we don't want to draw. but the feeling is everybody is tired and an tarmac
when everybody is tired it's because everybody gives everything —— but the feeling is everybody is tired and when everybody is tired it's because everyone gives everything. meanwhile, liverpool are still unbeaten after coming from behidn to win at burnley where roberto firmino was among the scorers. it was james milner who started the revival afterjack cork had put the home side in front. just before the end, xherdan shaqiri made it 3—1 to liverpool, who once again have moved to within two points of the leaders manchester city. we controlled the game most of the time, only we didn't create this time. in each play you give away and in each situation, with each long ball, they did really well, you know. they're really strong in the air. not for the first time this season, the value ofjames milner. he was outstanding in every position he played today and he scored a wonderful goal. very important at the moment. it was a bit out of the blue, everyone was surprised, even joe hart, in terms of a really good finish. really good game, very important. standout performance clearly from
james milner. the thoughts of liverpool managerjurgen klopp. in the night's other games, everton were held to a 1—1 d raw by newcastle, with richarlison rescuing a point for the home side. fulham drew 1—1 with manager claudio ranieri's former side leicester, and they're now bottom of the table on goal difference. chelsea suffered a shock 2—1 defeat at wolves, despite scoring first through ruben loftus—cheek. tottenham are up to third, ahead of chelsea, after beating southampton at wembley. harry kane setting spurs on the way to a 3—1 victory. in spain, the holders barcelona are safely through to the last 16 of the copa del rey. denis suarez scored twice as they beat third division side leonesa 4—1 for a 5—1 aggregate victory. elsewhere, atletico madrid also scored four against lower league opposition. andre silva scored the only goal of the game as last season's runners—up sevilla scraped through against third—tier side villa—novense 1—0 on aggregate. and karl—toko ekambi scored four

whilst wednesday brought a mild day to the southern half of the uk, across scotland it did remain very chilly. today we're going to even out the temperatures somewhat, but along with that change we will bring in quite a few showers for a time and a blustery wind to boot. the reason for the change, this area of low pressure approaching from the atlantic. and by the end of the night it will already be starting to try and push some milder airfurther north into scotland. there mayjust be a few icy patches in the far north—east. so for first thing, out temperatures to the south in double figures already and the milder air will continue to work its way further north as the morning goes on. it will though be a blustery rush hour. and as you can see, underneath this rain here behind me is scotland. many areas seeing a pretty wet picture at 8am. some heavier downpours pushing through the borders. quite a wet story across
northern ireland too. ahead of that rain, well, a dry but cloudy picture for northern england, the midlands, east anglia and the south—east. but the showers already starting to approach the south—west of england and wales. in the white arrows there we saw your sustained windspeed but the gusts will be higher and overall we're shaping up for a blustery day from top to tail across the uk. scotland should see skies clearing for the afternoon. some sunshine possible here. and certainly a milder day than we had on wednesday, temperatures into double figures for glasgow and edingburgh. to the south more clouds and showers and highs of 13 or 14 degrees. so very much on the mild side once again. through thursday evening, most of the rain subsides but then we tip over into the early hours of friday and things start to get very lively once again. overnight thursday into friday, this beast starts to swing in from the atlantic. it wil bring a spell of heavy rain. but that is not the biggest problem. the rain actually for many will clip out of the way very quickly first thing friday.
aside from scotland, where you, unfortunately, get the worst of both worlds. you will still have the heavy rain first thing on friday but you will also though have some very strong winds, gusting 60 to 70 miles per hour. perhaps in the odd spot of exposure up to 80 miles per hour. that will be enough to cause some disruption. and the rian keeps pushing in here during the day and, yes, white on the chart across the mountains, we are likely to see some snow. further south, some scattered showers towards the west, but many eastern areas windy, yes, but mild and perhaps more in the way of sunshine than we will do on thursday. onto the weekend, and the prospects are for things to gradually become drier for all. the winds will start to ease a little too and change direction. thing turning chillier by the time we get into next week. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is mike embley. our top stories: trouble for chinese tech giant huawei. its chief financial officer is arrested in canada and faces extradition to the us. a state funeral in washington for former president george hw bush.
