6:34 pm
without loss, chasing an unlikely record a62 runs to win. the only thing that could stop joe root‘s men now? the return of those clouds. joe currie has more. a batting masterclass from the 26—year—old, dominating away from home is not a familiar feeling for infa nt home is not a familiar feeling for infant right note but keaton jennings give them a day to remember. starting 177 runs ahead after the top order faltered it was left to ben stokes to try and keep up left to ben stokes to try and keep up with the pace. maybe it helped. ben stokes hit 360 is anjonny ba i rstow ben stokes hit 360 is anjonny bairstow again making himself useful. not much that ben stokes could do about this, though. as jennings' partners came and went next update was the time ofjos buttler who started promisingly but
6:35 pm
there was only one star man today. keatonjennings ending there was only one star man today. keaton jennings ending his there was only one star man today. keatonjennings ending his two—year wait to make his second england century much to the delight of the fa ns century much to the delight of the fans and his captain. this was this player's final performance for sri lankan. another made a respectable 37 before being caught and joe root declared shortly afterwards and setting the horse a daunting target of 472 for victory. generating —— jennings finishing the date streaks ahead of his team—mates within touching difference of 150. a big thank you to the people that stuck with me and helped me over the past 18 months and have backed me. they backed me through tough times, waking up during the night panicking and stressing and going through some tough times. like i say, really
6:36 pm
pleased to be sitting here having helped us get to a position where we can go on and win the game, i feel. a brilliant day for england and keatonjennings especially. earlier i spoke to simon mann from the bbc‘s cricket social who told me the real test forjennings will be back in england. he was picked for this tour because he was perceived as a good player i can spend, if england had been against south africa australia he might not even have a point on the tour body to punt on him mainly because they he is a good spin player but they also feel who else is there? they normally got to the last chance in terms of available options so they have gone with him, he has got some confidence and he will get some from this innings but the test will come when he goes and faces the new ball against south africa or australia, if you survive that long. sri lanka came in a series the big mac favourites, the only thing holding it up is maybe
6:37 pm
the bad weather takes some overs out of the match but they should win from here, a fantastic position to be in. really, england should end that horrendous run of not running away from home in 13 matches. there are four british sides in europa league action this evening and two of those have already kicked off. for the very latest here's our reporter ben croucher, and, ben, a good start for rangers. it started brilliantly for them. places up for grabs in the knockout stages tonight. let's look at the two early kick—offs tonight. rangers 2-2 two early kick—offs tonight. rangers 2—2 away at spartak moscow. not so many goals in the chelsea game away at bate borisov. in moscow, and eremenko —— eremenko one goal did
6:38 pm
rangers b wins, spartak moscow equalised before daniel candeias put rangers into the lead again however rangers into the lead again however rangers have just considered an own goal, making it 2—2 coming towards the end of the first half. chelsea are playing in belarus against bate borisov who have won the domestic league for the last 12 years. bate borisov have hit the post but it is still goalless in that game. unai emery‘s arsenal have been unstoppable in the europa league this season 3 wins from 3 — including a win in lisbon last time out. sporting — since that game — have sacked their manager and emery believes that could play to the visitors' advantage that personality has worked well for arsenal. win tonight and they'll be guaranteed to qualify for the knockouts as group winners. they change their approach but it is tough. this is a very good chance to
6:39 pm
get frost in the group. they want tomorrow to do a great match with oui’ tomorrow to do a great match with our opportunity. that has worked well for arsenal and if they win tonight they are guaranteed a place in the knockout stages as group winners. three wins out of the league and they will have a better head—to—head record than sporting. it's been 13 years since the gunners last won four in a row in europe. eight o'clock kick off there. so what about celtic? envious no doubt of arsenal's lofty position. just one win so far. rb leipzig come to celtic park tonight — having beaten a poor celtic 2—0 in the reverse fixture. but european nights in parkhead are always something special and manager brendan rodgers has called on his side to raise their game. we have shown at the very highest level in europe we can do it, it is ensuring consistency and, like i say, not dent confidence by giving away mistakes and hopefully we can
6:40 pm
then create a platform to get a good result. celtic, as we can see, have just one win in the group and if results go against them this evening, salzburg beat rosenborg and celtic lose that will be the end of their hopes for qualifying. you can follow all the action on the bbc sport website, live text commentary of chelsea's game against bate borisov and rangers who have just taken a 3—2 lead in moscow. the goals just don't stop over there. last night, manchester city fans may have been relieved var hasn't been brought into the champions league just yet — although it's emerged it could be introduced into the latter stages of the competition this season. it's over concerns that mistakes like this one, when raheem sterling appeared to trip over himself before a penalty was awarded to city.

6:42 pm
giving him that tribute. if anybody deserves one more cap it is somebody who has had 119. more than somebody who has had 119. more than somebody who has had one or somebody that might have had a handful, i think he has earned the right to that cap over a period of over ten years and six major tournaments with england and to beat the record goal—scorer. i think there would be numerous exa m ples of i think there would be numerous examples of people that have earned caps in different circumstances and the fact is it as an opportunity to pay tribute to what he has achieved. i'm looking forward to seeing him and working with him for the next few days. giving him the sendoff i think he deserves with england, which is not always possible for players. and in this opportunity it is possible so i hope and i'm sure the crowd will give him reaction he deserves. it might be rooney's 120th and final cap —
