of the women's world cup as their opponents thailand reach a milestone of their own. and fernando alonso has claimed back—to—back wins at the le mans 24—hour race. welcome to the programme. thanks forjoining us. it's the biggest rivalry in sport — india against pakistan in the cricket. over a billion people are thought to have been watching on sunday at old trafford in manchester. india continued their world cup dominance over their rivals, with a rain—affected 89—run victory as a highly anticipated match came to a strange end. pakistan, chasing 337, collapsed to 166—6 before a rain delay saw their target revised to another 136 runs required from 30 balls — a task near enough impossible. india, who have never lost a world cup match to pakistan, earlier posted an impressive 336 for 5, led by rohit sharma's 140 and 77 from virat kohli. our sports correspondent andy swiss
reports from old trafford. if you wondered exactly how much this game means, well, here's your answer. for india and pakistan fans, all roads led to manchester. whatever their transport, theyjust had to be there. this means a lot for us. we are from india, only to watch the match. only to win the match! it's more than a cricket match, this is war! no, it's the biggest match in the world. any sport, you can't beat it. the best part of a million people had applied for tickets, with an estimated billion watching on tv. talk about pressure. but from the off, india didn't seem to be feeling it — the favourites off to a flyer. a brilliant century from rohit sharma, before virat kohli showed why he is officially the world's best. he hit 77 until his bizarre dismissal. he thought he'd nicked it.
replays showed he hadn't. frustrated, just a little. pakistan needed 337 but it seems they might have a chance. when he went for 62 the rest tumbled around him. not even a rain delay rescued them as under the floodlights india wrapped up the emphatic win. iam i am enjoying my cricket, coming off the ipl campaign and then starting here, we always know how important it is to begin well so the focus was a lwa ys it is to begin well so the focus was always on that, to start well and then see where the team is heading and then do the usual. as a team we are heading in the right direction. for us it is important tojust are heading in the right direction. for us it is important to just keep ticking the boxes and i think as a
tea m ticking the boxes and i think as a team we have done that most of the time. so with so many people across the world avidly watching — did the match live up to the hype? it was noisy inside old trafford — and one man who was soaking up the atmosphere was cricket commentator charu sharma — he joined me in the studio earlier. it did live up to the hype because they don't play often enough, rather infrequently now. these contests are very coveted. almost a million people wanted tickets, it is the nature of something that is popular. try getting a ticket for the masters in augusta. true. these competitions are so in augusta. true. these competitions are so few and far between between these rivals. we wonder whether tickets go. when so many people apply for tickets, as long as the system is clear and transparent only a small percentage can get them. in terms of people, india has four or five times the population of pakistan. that ratio goes all the way through. so four or five times
of the set is trying to apply for ticket, that is the number they will get. it does therefore seem that there were many more indian fans than pakistani, and those with there would have been very disappointed. you feel for them. bangladesh captain mashrafe mortaza brushed aside the notion that his side will go into monday's game against west indies as favourites, despite their impressive recent record against their opponents. bangladesh have played west indies nine times over the course of the past year, winning on seven of those occasions. last time against new zealand, that might cost a little bit but we still have five matches left. if we can ta ke have five matches left. if we can take them one by one at a time and if we really perform well, which is work that we have to do, you cannot just always think i can win this match and then if you can't win, the max match you will get down. so you
have to perform all those matches and have to positive about all the matches. so, yes, there have been ups and downs but, still, there are many matches left. we can make the difference and we have to believe them. i believe that and my team believes that. defending champions the usa have booked their place in the last 16 of the women's world cup, after beating chile 3—0. bouyed from their record 13—0 win over thailand last week, the united states started strongly in paris, carli lloyd putting them ahead after just 11 minutes. she's now become the first player to score in six straight women's world cup games. julie ertz got their second shortly after, before lloyd made it 3—0 before the break. she wasted a chance for a hattrick late in the second half though — going wide on a penalty awarded by var. earlier, sweden booked their place in the last 16 with a 5—1win over thailand, who scored their first ever world cup goal. ed harry reports.
after conceding 13 goals against the united states it is no wonder that thailand were nervous. it did not ta ke thailand were nervous. it did not take long for the shaky defence to lea k take long for the shaky defence to leak more gold. lingers —— sweden's opener scored within six minutes. 2-0 opener scored within six minutes. 2—0 up before a third was added to it was struck well but the keeper should have done better. thailand managed to hold sweden's attack for most of the second half. it wasn't until the 83rd minute that they entered —— added another. this unstoppable header. and then, a moment to savourfor unstoppable header. and then, a moment to savour for thailand after letting in so many goals, they finally had one of their own to celebrate. the travelling fans had something to cheer about. the final twist came deep into injury time. a score from the spot to confirm sweden's place in the final 16.
qatar fought their way back from two goals down to draw 2—2 with paraguay in theirfirst ever copa america game on sunday — at a near—empty maracana stadium. the 2022 world cup hosts are one of two guest teams at the south american championship along with japan. however, their debut got off to a bad start as they went 2—0 down. but boualem khoukhi levelled with this scrappy finish. colombia lead group b on three points while paraguay and qatar have a point each. chelsea manager maurizio sarri has left the club, tojoinjuventus on a three year deal. he only had one season at stamford bridge but led them to third in the english premier league — and they also won the europa league. he has signed a three year deal at the italian champions. frank lampard, the club's record golascorer and current boss at second tier side derby is favourite to replace him. brooke henderson won the meijer lpga classic on sunday to break the canadian record for tour victories with nine. the 21—year—old led all the way,
closing with a 2—under 70 in chilly conditions to hold off four players by a stroke. in doing so henderson broke a tie with sandra post for the canadian record on the lpga tour and also moved ahead of george knudson and mike weirforthe overall country mark. fernando alonso has claimed back—to—back wins at the le mans 24—hour race. alonso shared the car with fellow former formula one drivers sebastien buemi and kazuki nakajima. the toyota crew, who took the lead with an hour to go, were also crowned the world endurance champions. the race was watched by over 250,000 spectators. marc marquez has stretched his lead at the top of the motogp championship after winning the catalunya gp after most of his big rivals crashed out. marquez‘s honda team—mate jorge lorenzo was late on the brakes as he attempted to pass yamaha's maverick vinales on lap two. he took out ducati's andrea dovizioso as well as vinales, whose team—mate valentino rossi also went wide trying to avoid them. with his main challengers out, five—time world champion marquez rode to his first win at his home track since 2014
for his fourth victory in seven races. denmark's jakob fuglsang won the criterium du dauphine on sunday as he held onto the advantage he carried into the eighth and final stage. dylan van baarle won a close battle with jack haig to take the stage victory. fuglsang had carried an eight—second lead over adam yates into the final stage, but the british rider pulled up with less than 50 kilometres to go as he struggled with fever. fuglsang rode solidly to finish the stage 16th, claiming his second criterium title following his 2017 triumph. a quick note before we go that the us. open is taking place and we are into the final three holes now. the leaders are almost done. very woodland is the mound to catch. you

out and about. through monday, out and about, the front is not going to move very through monday, the front is not going to move very far very quickly. to the north, to the far north of england, northern ireland and scotland, it is a day of heavy thundery showers and limited bright and sunny spells. across the south and east midlands, east anglia and much of southern england, the weather should stay largely dry with some warm june sunshine and temperatures reaching the low 20s. the good news is we finally lose the influence of this area of low pressure mid week and the bad news was that we have another area of low pressure moving in from the south bringing the threat of some more heavy and potentially thundery rain. this is how tuesday starts off. wet weather starts the day in highland scotland, gradually moving eastwards with time. dry start elsewhere but starting to turn a bit cloudier later in the day and feeling perhaps a little more humid as well across the south of wales
and southern parts of england. we may start to see some showers break out late in the day. those showers, we already have met office warning for these, late on tuesday through tuesday night and into wednesday, the amount of rain that we get will vary a lot from place to place. even that the ground is completely saturated, where we do get the heavy downpours coming through we could see some surface water flooding building very quickly. there is a risk of some disruption to road and rail. the exact position of the thundery downpours are still open to doubt, a large spread of east—west movement but it mostly looks like england at risk and perhaps a little rain into eastern parts of wales. through wednesday also some heavy showers again through northern ireland and scotland bringing unsettled weather but the weather has not been as wet across this part of the uk as other areas so hopefully that rain will not be impactful.
