6:31 pm
evening to you, we will have the latest from the scotland and england camps at the women's world cup in france a little bit later in the programme, but we are going to start with the cricket world cup, where england were simply ruthless. smashing afghanistan to all parts. they won the toss, fancied about, really fancied it. they made 390 750 of those runs coming from 25 sixes, that's a one—day record. 17 of them in owen morgan's1a8, that's that's a one—day record. 17 of them in owen morgan's 148, that's also an in owen morgan's148, that's also an odi record, not surprisingly, england one by 150 runs. we look alive to the ground and just a moment, but first, here's oursports correspondent, anti—swiss, with the story of the match. he'd onlyjust recovered from a bad back. fair to say, you hardly have guessed it, as owen morgan took the art of smashing cricket balls two new dizzying heights. for england, it was the stuff of dreams, for afghanistan
6:32 pm
more a nightmare. wherever they bolded, well he just whacked it. talk about a captain's inning. his century was just the start, the crowd almost losing counts, as morgan clobbered his way into sporting history. that his 17th six, record and one—day internationals, and although he eventually fell for 148, his team—mates carried on. england's total of 25 sixes, another record, and a display of dazzling destruction. 398 was afghanistan's gargantuan targets, and despite some spirited batting, it was always beyond them. england's earlier exhilaration guaranteeing another world cup win. let's speak to andy now, evening to you andy. yes, afghanistan, five defeats out of five, they were bottom of the standings, but england top of the standings, but england top of the standings, and what a fantastic
6:33 pm
inning that was. it was, and perhaps what made it even more rare remarkable, was to start their innings, england were actually relatively subdued. afghanistan did have a degree of control, but then owen morgan came in and that all changed. remember, this was a guy who suffered a back spasm on friday, was seriously in doubt as to whether he would be fit to play in this match, played. and what an incredible innings it was. 148 in barely an hour and a quarter. truly extraordinary, as you say, those record—breaking statistics. 17 sixes from owen morgan. 25 sixes from england. it was quite a staggering display in the second half of their innings. from there, frankly, afghanistan never really had any realistic chance. they batted with some spirits, but the game slightly fizzled out. but england certainly doesn't mind that, that was some batting display from them, what it means is that they are right on course for the semi finals, in fact they are the top of the standings, as things stand at the
6:34 pm
moment. and frankly, if they can bat like owen morgan did here, they will certainly take some beating on it. will they just? andy certainly take some beating on it. will theyjust? andy swiss, thanks indeed. michelle platen he has been questioned by french police today in connection with a corruption investigation looking at qatar's successful bid for the 2022 world cup. platen he was the ua president at the time, and sat on the fifa executive midi. while jane dougal has been outside the building where platen he has been on stakeout duty, jane, today, and to the west of paris, where he is he he is being questioned, a chance to get to the bottom of whether that boat back in 2010 was rigged, whether votes were bought for qatar to get the world cup, have we heard from platen he at all in any way? jo make no, not yet. as you've mentioned, there's always intrigue for the decision in 2010 to vote for qatar, because there was said to have been something of a gentleman's agreement between him
6:35 pm
and the then fifa president to vote for the american bid, to give them the 22 tournament. he said an attorney 15 that he might have told american officials that he would vote for the united states, but however, he changed his mind after a november 2010 meeting, hosted by the van president, nicholas are cosy, and qatar's prime prince, but platney has long insisted that that meeting did not influence his vote for qatar less than two weeks later. when it was announced, it was something of a shock in 2010, temperatures are so hot, it would be unbearable to play football and come about because of the lack of human rights and qatar as well. following investigations in that decision, 16 of the 24 members of the fifa executive committee have either been struck off, suspended, or are under investigation. now as you mentioned, also in 2015, michelle record two was banned by football by fifa's
6:36 pm
ethics committee, different investigation, and that was along with the former president, and following a conflict of interest and dereliction of duty overpayments between the two of them. but the reason we are here is because again today platney has been detained. he was reported to have been brought here to the building behind me, the ministry of the interior, the anti—corruption ministry of the interior, the anti—corru ption office of ministry of the interior, the anti—corruption office of the judicial police is based in this building, and they have been questioning him today, laura led earlier, he was surrounded by a throw of journalists, earlier, he was surrounded by a throw ofjournalists, but he didn't a nswer throw ofjournalists, but he didn't answer any questions at the time and no sign of platney himself either, but his spokesperson has issued a statement, it was issued in french, soi statement, it was issued in french, so i will paraphrase it somewhat. they've said that he is in no way under arrest, that he is being questioned for technical reasons, that he is answering all questions, and that he has nothing to reproach himself over, and that he is absolutely confident of the outcome. this been no reaction from them today or from fifa this been no reaction from them today orfrom fifa either, they say
6:37 pm
they are not in a position to comment further, by french police can detain michelle platney for up to 48 hours in this building. jane dougal there, many thanks indeed for the update. reigning champion geraint thomas is a doubt for the tour de france after a doubt for the tour de france after a heavy crash in the tour de suisse. the team ineos rider was taken to hospitalfor the team ineos rider was taken to hospital for checks after he came off whilst in the peleton on the fourth stage of the nine day race in the alps, his warm up nine day race in the alps, his warm upfor nine day race in the alps, his warm up for the tour that starts in just under three weeks. medics main concern seemed to be the welshman's right shoulder. his teamate chris froome has already been ruled out of the tour after a crash lees than a week ago left him with a broken leg, hip and elbow. looks pretty sore, doesn't it there? the tennis at queens was a wash—out today, no play at all in west london, dan evans and kyle edmund had been due to play theirfiorst kyle edmund had been due to play their fiorst round matches kyle edmund had been due to play theirfiorst round matches but kyle edmund had been due to play their fiorst round matches but will have tio come back tomorrow. there was better weather in birmingham, where the world number
6:38 pm

6:39 pm
the women's world cup tomorrow, they have to beat argentina in paris after defeats against england and japan, onlya after defeats against england and japan, only a win will do, although an extra in a set of results could still see the mess out even if they do win, or scotland sports news correspondent chris has been with the squad. our scotland sports news correspondent chris mclaughlin has been with the squad. if you are going to ever make a break match, you might as well have it in break match, you might as well have itina break match, you might as well have it in a venue like this, this is where scotland face argentina tonight, in a game they quite simply must win. head coach, shelley care, has been speaking to the media. she knows that scotland are the favourites, she knows there is no other option for a scotland victory of scotla nd other option for a scotland victory of scotland are looking at staying here in france beyond the grip stages. now she also said that she had received words of encouragement from someone very special, alex ferguson. everyone knows her alex, so i probably wont tell you every thing, because he did say that he was disappointed in some of the decisions of that have been made against us. he was very competent
6:40 pm
entry about the team. the determination, the stamina, and the togetherness, and the team to finish so strongly in both games. he's watched both of them, he sent us a message before we came here. it's absolutely brilliant for myself, as absolutely brilliant for myself, as a manager, and for him to contact me and also for the players, for him to pass on his best wishes, and he's going to be cheering at the game tomorrow night, so it's billions, great bit of support from an absolute legend. remember, it's two defeats from two for scotland so far, that defeat in nice to england and then the 21 defeat to japan and ran. 2—1. to my ninth, 8pm uk time, scotla nd ran. 2—1. to my ninth, 8pm uk time, scotland between argentina, scotland must win, and even if they do, are the results have to go in their favour. chris maclachlan there for us favour. chris maclachlan there for us in paris. now the pressure is often going to force ahead of their game against japan. already through to the knockout stage, a draw for the lionesses will make sure they are group winners and probably ensure an
6:41 pm
easier last—16 tie. jo currie is in nice for us. now from just over 24 hours' time from now, the lionesses will be stepping out here at this stadium in nice, ready to take onjapan in their final nice, ready to take onjapan in theirfinal group nice, ready to take onjapan in their final group game. now nice, ready to take onjapan in theirfinal group game. now both teams already through to the knockout stages. this is all about who wins the group, and if the lionesses can get a draw or victory, they will go through as group d winners. not japan, they they will go through as group d winners. notjapan, they are a team that england no very, very well when it comes to world cups. they played them in the last three tournaments, i'm sure many of you at home will remember that heartbreaking some final defeat to them in 2015. at this time around, england striker, richard daley, says it's all about two words. winning mentality. element gal, that's been a model that we have for a while now, find a way to win. and i think that that's the mentality we need. we've got a winners mentality within the old whole group, and i think that's ingrained within the group that we need to have that winning mentality. we treat every game like we are going to win it. we've got to win
6:42 pm
it, and we figure out how to break down teams, how to nullify their strengths, and use our strengths in any game. but yeah, japan is a com pletely any game. but yeah, japan is a completely different opponent. but we will look into that more, obviously today and moving forward onto wednesday, focus on how we can beat them. rachel daley and the rest of the lionesses have been very good company this week. tennis superstar, serena williams, is also staying in their hotel. daley is actuallyjust wander down from her comment tomorrow night, they will of course try to replicate some of her success. if you want to watch the match you can commence across bbc sports on tv, radio, and online. joe curry there. in nice. let's stay with football. sort of. this is frenchman benoit paire taking on his compatriotjo wilfried tsonga in halle. turned it into a football match halfway through a point. who wins? pair goes for the spectacular volley here, and makes a bit of a full of himself. but the crowd loved it. and so did we. that's it from sports
6:43 pm
day, we will have updates for you figure out the rest of evening, but for me and the rest of the team, goodbye for now. you are watching bbc news, the headlines now tonight. the race to the new conservative party to my party leader is down to five, with dominic rob failing to get enough votes to reach the next stage, the remaining candidates will not take pa rt remaining candidates will not take part ina remaining candidates will not take part in a live debate on the bbc tonight, it will be a first big test for the front runner, borisjohnson, who's been accused of avoiding scrutiny. and two teenage neo—nazis, who encouraged an attack on prince harry, for marrying a mixed—race woman. they have beenjailed harry, for marrying a mixed—race woman. they have been jailed for terrorism offences. now back to our top story, and in the last hour, dominic rob has been a limited from
6:44 pm
the conservative leadership race, with the field of contenders narrowing down to five. our favourite, borisjohnson —— the favourites, remains way out in front of the other candidates. jeremy hunt, michael gove, rory stewart and soge a job but are also in the race, with each securing the minimum of 33 votes from fellow mps. and itjust under two hour times, all five candidates will take part in a live debate here on the bbc. well the results of the latest ballots were declared just after six p:m., by the senior conservative mp, jared heller. the total number of votes cast in today's ballots was 313. the total number of ballot papers rejected was again, zero. the total numberof rejected was again, zero. the total number of votes given to each candidate in alphabetical order where as follows... michael gove, 41. jeremy hunt 46. sajid javid, 33.
6:45 pm
borisjohnson, 126. 41. jeremy hunt 46. sajid javid, 33. borisjohnson,126. dominic raab, 30. rory stewart 37. therefore, the following candidates are now eligible to continue onto the next ballots on wednesday, the 19th of june, at three p:m.. michael gove, jeremy hunt, sajid javid, june, at three p:m.. michael gove, jeremy hunt, sajidjavid, boris johnson, and rory stewart. thank you very much. gerald guillen of the united 22 committee, let's get more from our chief political correspondent, vicki young, who is in the central lobby of the houses of parliament, vicki just mixed—race year, dominic rob is out, but rory stewart keeps going. that's right, he was the outsider at the guinea, i think there is suspicion among some here, that supporters ofjeremy hunt may be
6:46 pm
have lent their support to rory stewa rt‘s have lent their support to rory stewart's commit means of course that he takes part in that debate tonight, and has been quite striking how much he has really laid into borisjohnson, so that's going to be pretty fascinating to watch, but let's speak to guy opperman, who is with me now, he is from team gove. a bit of support for michael gove, but not a huge amount. are you worried that momentum has stalled. no, ithink that momentum has stalled. no, i think after the problems of la st no, i think after the problems of last week and, he has slowly but surely his back way back into the contest, i think michael has a prove n contest, i think michael has a proven debater, expecting to do very well tonight. i also think that a significant number of dominic raab supporters will come michael's way, they are the natural people i think will come to the committee of brexiteer that michael is, and a strong remainder, my good friend of boris to come he's my neighbour in northumberland. but the reality of the situation is that i believe michael is the man to unite the party, get brexit over the line a pragmatic brexit approach, but i also think of someone who can beat jeremy corbyn, because that's the key thing that we are also looking to in the longer—term.
6:47 pm
you mentioned were restored there, he really has come from nowhere, he does things very different we, he does things very different we, he does seem to be striking a cord with some people, not necessarily conservative party members, are you rate about his attacks on boris johnson? there's a lot of concern amongst your colleagues that there's too much tory attacking tory, and that he's going to add to that. no, ithink that he's going to add to that. no, i think is a legitimate point, which is until boris faces scrutiny, he does not deserve to be the front runner, he does not deserve to have our backing. now he's clearly going to get scrutiny in the debate tonight, he there will be proper scrutiny over the next 4—5 weeks, if he gets to the final. but i think this should be, quite frankly, robust debate, and i saw the channel for debate on sunday night, and i saw some colleagues engaging in intellectual serious debates, having a robust debate, but not knocking chunks out of each other, we are on the same side, but we have differing views about the way ahead. that is something i think is really important to debate. borisjohnson is still a long way in
6:48 pm
terms of endorsements from mps command if you look at all the polling of grassroots members, it's pretty clear he will win this, is there any point in continuing? absolutely not. the front runner has never won the tory leadership contest before. overall the ones in the past, secondly, i genuinely believe that if you take voters for granted, and some of them are our good selves, you should look at the amount of other colleagues putting on voters, rather than boris putting on voters, rather than boris putting on voters, rather than boris putting on voters in the latest round of results. i also, on voters in the latest round of results. ialso, the result he's on voters in the latest round of results. i also, the result he's got this clearly he is in front. but there is a differing view that i suspect people will coalesce around, as an alternative to what boris is proposing on an ongoing basis. i believe that michael is the right person to take this forward, and i think also he is the one who's going to come up the rails. thank you very much indeed. all to play for. again tomorrow, where we will have the third round, and again the lowest candidate will... sure vickie, i mean that the there, talking about talking up michael
6:49 pm
gove, it does feel as if tonight the pressure is really onjeremy hunt. i pressure is really onjeremy hunt. , ithink pressure is really onjeremy hunt. , i think a lot of people feel that he has not really cut through in the way that he might have done. ec may be asa way that he might have done. ec may be as a statesman of course, his foreign secretary, but seen as quite cautious i think by lots of people. and that isn't necessarily resonating, and i think he put on one or two votes, didn't he? that's all that happened. sorry it's the matter now of who is going to be up against borisjohnson. matter now of who is going to be up against boris johnson. no matter now of who is going to be up against borisjohnson. no one doubts is when you get through to the final round and beyond that ballot paper, so the question is is best positioned to challenge boris johnson? should be someone else who isa johnson? should be someone else who is a leading brexiteer as michael gove is, or should it be someone who voted remain asjeremy hunt did, but now says that he is very much onside with brexit, so it's going to be interesting to see how those dynamics change, and it really is impossible to predict, because as we say, dominic raab has dropped out, his 30 boats up for grabs, but you would imagine as a brexiteer that there are more likely to go to
6:50 pm
michael gove or boris johnson, there are more likely to go to michael gove or borisjohnson, but we find out as six o'clock tomorrow. vicki, thank you. that's vickie young there in central london. so, what happens now in the leadership race? well, tomorrow and possibly thursday, there will be further ballads of mps to whittle down the candidates. until we get to the final two, and at that point, conservative members will get under way. tory members will vote, and the winner of the contest and our next prime minister will be announced beginning the attorney 2nd ofjuly. you can watch tonight's live tv debate between the remaining candidates on the bbc news channel. and bbc one at eight o'clock. there's our next prime minister, hosted by a full reaction programme here in the bbc news channel. with yours truly. from nine o'clock. let's move on to some other news now, and there are two natures who are neo—nazis, sent to prison after encouraging people on social media to shoot prince harry for
6:51 pm
for marrying meghan markle.
