6:31 pm

6:32 pm
over sri lanka in the first test. these are the scenes at haringay borough — the seventh tier club hosting league one afc wimbledon in the fa cup. we'll be there live ahead of their first round tie. and is there a more fearsome prospect in rugby union than a date with the all blacks? they lie in wait for england at twickenham tomorrow. we took a tough opponentment we have to make sure we don't dip our toe own the weak end and feel our way so plenty to come in the programme, but let's start with england's thumping victory over sri lanka
6:33 pm
in the first test in galle. they won by 211 runs, ending a dismal run of 13 away tests without victory. 0ur sports correspondent andy swiss watched the action. a lap of honour and who can blame them? for england and theirfans, away wins are a rarity so a first for two years was a day to applaud. it began with sri lanka hoping for the unlikeliest of come backs but they were soon sent spinning. jack leach with the early breakthrough as he and moeen ali combined to devastating effect. moeen snapping the first of his four wickets. this was a bad idea. there was no escaping them. before leach in his second test delivered the defining moment. that is about as good as spin bowling gets.
6:34 pm
bamboozled, unplayable. unforgettable. it wasn't all seamless for england. a moment of comedy courtesy of adil rashid, but it was about his team's only slip up as sri lanka quickly capitulated when herath in his final match was run out. it was all over — an ultimately emphatic victory for england and after 13 away tests without a win their travelling troubles have finally finished. it is not just it is notjust us, it is not like we're the only side that struggle away from home, it is very difficult to win test matches abroad now, and i think makes it sweeter when you do come to a very difficult venues like galle and manage to win games, so, hopefully we, you know, we can build on this and it is notjust a one
6:35 pm
off, we can go to cand marcus ericsson with a huge amount of confidence and look to get so a fine display from england, and afterwards former captain and bbc cricket social analyst michael vaughan said that the performance bodes well for the rest of the series. it is hard to win that first game when you had such a period away from home not which, now they have won the game, all the players should be confident. if you look from one to link every player contributed somewhat. you know even an innings of 38 by buttler at six when england we re of 38 by buttler at six when england were under pressure, that is a tremendous innings in the state of the game. england should look at this week and say right, park that, put the bus there, wheels go to cand marcus ericsson and do a similar performance. england's women have a match up against sri lanka themselves, in their opening game of the world t20 tomorrow. they're looking to add the 20 overs crown to the one day world title they won last year, but they'll face some tough
6:36 pm
competition from the likes of three time winners austraila, and the reigning champions west indies, who are this year's hosts. and henry moeran has made the trip to st lucia for us: the trip to st lucia for us. england go into this world t20 competition as one of the faivas. the 50 over world champions looking to make it a done in this competition but their preparation ahead of the event has been far from ideal. warm up matches against strong opposition haven't quite gone the way of the side, the weather here in st lucia has been farfrom ideal meaning practise ahead of their first match has been limited but perhaps the most crucial worry is the absence of catherine brunt, the all rounder vastly experienced, a hugely important member of the england side, aggravated a back injury in the final warm up match against india. england know how important a player she is for this side. of course, she is a massive pa rt side. of course, she is a massive part of the size. 0n side. of course, she is a massive
6:37 pm
part of the size. on and off the pitch, on the pitch, obviously she isa pitch, on the pitch, obviously she is a brilliant all rounder, she bowls the tough overs in t20, so she is hard to replace. you feel like you need two players to do that. we are bringing fran wilson out as cover but i am confident the girls coming in the side will do a good job. england should have aspirations of making the semifinals in antigua at the very least, anything less will be seen as a major disappointment. i won't be easy, t20 cricket means it can throw up the odd upset. it just cricket means it can throw up the odd upset. itjust takes one player to have a good day and you could find yourself on the end of a shock result. england have to be care. england should have aspirations of making the semifinals in antigua at the very least, anything less will be seen as a major disappointment. i won't be easy, t20 cricket means it can throw up the odd upset. itjust ta kes can throw up the odd upset. itjust takes one player to have a good day and you could a bit of rain there. well, the tournament started today, with new zealand and india kicking off the action in guyana.
6:38 pm
india batted first and set a total of 194, thanks largely to a brilliant century from captain harmanpreet kaur. it was always going to be a tough ask for new zealand, particularly after the dismissal of the tournaments all—time leading run scorer suzie bates. new zealand falling well short of the target, india winning by 3a runs. now, it has all the hallmarks of a classic fa cup first round tie. five years ago, there were regularly more players on the pitch than people watching in the stands at seventh tier haringay borough. tonight they'll host a record crowd of around two and a half thousand, as they take part in the first round of the fa cup for the first time in their history. they take on league one side afc wimbledon. need others thank you alex. it is cold. what an amazing story, hang gay borough has,
6:39 pm
just tell us, what is the atmosphere like in the build up to kick off? it is always very special, the small clu ns is always very special, the small cluns getting is always very special, the small clu ns getting a is always very special, the small cluns getting a chance to take on biggerfish? cluns getting a chance to take on bigger fish? —— clubs. cluns getting a chance to take on bigger fish? -- clubs. it really is, you can feel that right now, the fa ns you can feel that right now, the fans are already coming in, it will be their record attendance they have had here and it does have that magic feel, already about it, just being here, and look, if they pull off a win tonight, it will be monumental for the club because it does have that community feel here. there is something very dangerous as well, alex, season there about a small club, getting their chance to ta ke small club, getting their chance to take on, you know, afc wimbledon play for league one so several tiers above them. what makes it so dangerous for those big teams coming to smaller clubs like this? well, i suppose for haringey they literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain. they know the pressure is not on them, no—one expecting them
6:40 pm
to win. when you look at the form of wimbledon they haven't picked up points on play very well. haringey will believe they are in with a chance, in front of their home crowd. what is your prediction, can you think haringey can pull off a big upset this evening? putting me on the spot. i suppose that is why we love the fa cup, the magic, you don't know what is going to happen. it is unpredictable but we love that fairy tale story so i will go with haringey because we are here, the home ground, the crowd. all eyes on the other stadium white hart lane this evening. good luck with the commentary this evening down there at haringey borough. brilliant stuff. so from a seventh tier team, to two of the biggest in the world — manchester united and manchester city face—off in the derby on sunday afternoon. city, top of the table yet again after an unbeaten start to the season. for united, its been a rockier road, but with victory againstjuventus in the champions league this week — could they be beginning to turn things around?
6:41 pm
ben croucher looks ahead. it has long ceased to be a match only for manchester. this is a derby, watched the whole world over. gt it divides this normally united city. for many this is the derby, city versus united, blue versus red, pep versus jose. you know it is manchester united, you know, maybe with liverpool, the strongest teams in all the history in england, for us to be there, now in the last years,ic, the moment they beat there, 0ld in the last years,ic, the moment they beat there, old trafford, 0k, they beat there, old trafford, 0k, the people think, 0k, we are being quite similar, that is a big honour. it isa quite similar, that is a big honour. it is a derby that hasn't always been that close, when the premier league started united were the powerhouse winning eight of their 12 league meet information the ‘90s but
6:42 pm
to the present day city have brushed that red devil to become the success stories and in recent years it has provided a fair share of iconic moment, 2011, the goal wayne rooney described as his most important in a united shirt but it wassen always ant him. balotelli provided the fireworks in a 6—1 thrashing at old trafford. later kompa ny fireworks in a 6—1 thrashing at old trafford. later kompany all be won the title at the etihad. it could have been day jew the title at the etihad. it could have been dayjew view.|j the title at the etihad. it could have been day jew view. i don't think it -- have been day jew view. i don't think it —— deja vu. what happened last season, especially because it isa last season, especially because it is a manchester derby and it means, what it means. what he means is a chance to end city's unbeaten run. city have smashed in 12 but united are buoyed by the midweek win overjuventus. winning in turin in the way they won, when they concede few against
6:43 pm
that team, and we arrive if a good run too, hopefully it can be a good derby and everyone can enjoy watching the game. that will be the perfect advertising for english football. the derby watched the whole world over, the eyes of millions trained op one stadium in match much the sunday. chelsea are the last english team standing in the women's champions league — but how much longer can they last? after a tough quarter final draw — they'll face two—time finalists paris saint germain. 0ur sports correspondent jo currie is here with more. so psg up first in the quarterfinal, it could get tougher in the semis if they make it through. yes if they wa nt they make it through. yes if they want o get to the final they will have to do it the hard way, they are up have to do it the hard way, they are up against psg in the quarterfinal, two time finalist, if they get past then, it gets tougher in the semifinals because there, they are due to face either the defending champions lyon or last year's runner—up wolfsburg so it won't be
6:44 pm
easy, but to be fair last year they made the semifinals for the first time. they know how to do it but i won't be easy. how does that leave the other side of the draw, if it look like chelsea have to take on the tougher sides, is the other side easier? yes with have the big hitting sides in one side, the other draw is ease yes, you have prague, the cheque champions up against bayern munich and barcelona up against lsk, what us does mean for tony duggan for her and for them, they have got a relatively easy root through to the final, if they met bayern munich it won't be too easy but that i have a good chance of reaching the final. it is about the luck of the draw and unfortunately for chelsea, it has not gone their way. for chelsea, it has not gone their way. also coming up in the programme. watch out world — laura muir won four major medals and qualified as a vet last year. now all herfocus is on running.
6:45 pm
i've been chatting to the european champion. a huge battle ahead for tony bellew — and a massive challenge for england's rugby union players tomorrow too — they face the mighty all blacks at twickenham. over the years, the sides have met a0 times. england have only won seven of those matches. new zealand continue to be the most dominant side on the planet. joe wilson reports. england here completing their preparation in their pennyhill park surroundings of all the channels to come against new zealand at twickenham, of all the uncertainties at least there is one thing they can rely on, their warrior goal kicker 0wen farrell, he is not suspended. he is not injured. he is ready. do you think playing new zealand at rugby union is perhaps biggest test
6:46 pm
anywhere in sport? i've never really thought about it like that, maybe. you know, the, certainly a brilliant team, you know to be at the top for that long and have the win percentage they have is pretty remarkable, really, but we are looking forward to playing them. remarkable, really, but we are looking forward to playing themm terms of you throwing yourself into it, are there times whence you think maybe i need to hold back, maybe i need to protect myself because i immediate to make the kick, can you adapt your style of play at all in that way? can you hold yourself back? i don't know many players that would want to hold themselves back. what we are trying to do is win test matches, you know, and to do that, it isa matches, you know, and to do that, it is a pretty physical game at time, and, you know, ita it is a pretty physical game at time, and, you know, it a decision there and then, so, every situation is different. so while england host the world champions at twickenham, wales, scotland and ireland are also
6:47 pm
all in action on saturday. after thrashing italy last weekend, six nations champions ireland return to dublin to face argentina, while wales are desperate to finally end their losing run against australia. austin halewood looks ahead to the action... yes, the autumn internationals really start to heat up in cardiff as wales host australia, for a second world cup in a row both sides are in the same pool injapan next year, so this is the match of the autumn, that warren gatland will have targeted. he led wales to victory over the wallabies in 2008, that was the year he took over as head coach, but that was a decade ago now, and they haven't beaten them since but despite that run of 13 straight defeats, wales go in as slight favourites, that is after a co mforta ble slight favourites, that is after a comfortable win over scotland last week, stretch their unbeaten run to six matches now, in what has been a brilliant year for the welsh. we can look at their 20001 brilliant year for the welsh. we can look at their 2000 1 results so far, they have won nine matches and just
6:48 pm
two defeats, in the six nations, while australia, that i have only w011 while australia, that i have only won three as well as having the disappointment of finishing third in the rugby championship. gatland knows better than to underestimate a tea m knows better than to underestimate a team like the walls by. pretty strong team. they picked the strongest team. they have made a few change, but, you know, it, ithink it's a sign of respect, and one that this welsh team have earned over the year, and in the past, a number of yea rs year, and in the past, a number of years ago teams use year, and in the past, a number of years ago teams use to be co mforta ble years ago teams use to be comfortable putting out the second string side. they don't do that any more. after scotland's tenth straight defeat in cardiff they will be delighted to be back to the familiar surroundings of murray feel. they host fiji and have had a confidence boost of stuart hogg returning. scotland are a better side with him in the team. he had ankle surgery eight weeks ago but he is back in the starting line up and
6:49 pm
scotla nd is back in the starting line up and scotland carry a much bigger attacking threat with hogg in their ranks, the man in charge says he is 110w ranks, the man in charge says he is now good to go. we had experience last year when he came back from two injuries and played in champions cup game, played very well and two weeks later he played test level. we could have kept him back a few weeks but he will still be going into a test match and obviously in training he is ready to go. ireland have one of their key players returning to face argentina in shaun 0'brian brian. they have won 27 of the matches he has played in but he has been out for a year shoulder and hip injury r the irish got often to perfect start with a thrashing of it will i in chicago last weekend but they will need him this time round because on saturday, it is argentina in dublin, and the pumas are sure to be a big step up in class. time for a quick look at the other sports stories making the headlines this evening.

6:52 pm
having, you know, going for a run is a stressful release from exams but running coming up to a championship is stressful. at the world indoors i was at vet school the morning before, you know, i didn't overthink the championships so i rocked up and raced and did well. i think lend themselves to each other very well. imam your themselves to each other very well. i mam your rivals now are quaking themselves to each other very well. imam your rivals now are quaking in their boots because last year you had the destruction of your finals of qualifying at a vet, next year, you won't have to deal with any of that, you will be a full—time athlete, you have won european championships, there is the world championships, there is the world championships next year, world what watch out now you can dedicate yourself full—time to running? . yes, it is going to be different. it is not something i will be used to, but i have conformed very well so far but having that extra time will mean in terms of recovery, it will
6:53 pm
be better and we have that flexibility of going to training camps and being better prepared for competitions, not feeling like you are running round. dame kelly holmes presented you the scottish athlete of the year title, and she introduced you to the stage as the future 0lympic introduced you to the stage as the future olympic champion, what did you make of that, no pressure there? yes, no pressure! it was really nice. yes, it can be easy for one to say she is going to do well but for someone say she is going to do well but for someone to do it, it was special, so that was lovely of her to say and hopefully i can live up to that one day. future 0lympic day. future olympic champion laura muir. max whitlock says the silver medal he won at last week's world championships has given him plenty of confidence as preparations begin for tokyo 2020. the double olympic champion just missed out on a third consecutive pommel title in doha, despite matching the chinese winner's score he was given a lower execution mark. but whitlock says there are a lot of positives to take. it has belt a lot of confidence in
