hello again. welcome to the programme. the shadows may be lengthening at durham but the sun will not be setting on england's cricket world cup. the hosts are through to the semi finals after beating new zealand and comfortably too by 119 runs. let's head there now and speak to our correspondent andy swiss. andy, england have come good in the nick of time. that's right, when the egg led fans we re that's right, when the egg led fans were arriving this morning to suspect and might of been some nerves jangling, because they knew that if they lost this match then potentially they could be out of the world cup. in truth, a defeat never really looked likely from the moment they got off to a terrific start,
6:34 pm
thanks again to that opening partnership of jason roy and thanks again to that opening partnership ofjason roy and jonny ba i rstow. partnership ofjason roy and jonny bairstow. another terrific pair of innings from them. jonny bairstow reaching 100 for the second match in a row. a terrific innings from jonny ba i rstow. a row. a terrific innings from jonny bairstow. 106 eventually. he proved what an important part of this team he is alone with jason roy. then eglin slightly lost they are way towards the end. a clatter of wickets in the middle order which gave new zealand some hope that they might be able to restrict england to get a bowl total, but the tail wag, liam plunkett web blows towards the end of that helped put england beyond the 300 mark which was always going to be a tough target as far as new zealand are concerned. but take delhi when eglin got to a stunning start, what a catch that was from jos buttler to dismiss the dangerous martin stop led to a perfect start as new zealand lost early wickets.
6:35 pm
fairto as new zealand lost early wickets. fair to say england also enjoyed something of a dose of good fortune as well with this extraordinary dismissal of kane williamson, the new zealand captain. such a danger man. mark wood just getting a fingertip onto the wall on the stance, running out kane williamson at the non—strikers and, touch pad lock. that was what england needed, and from there it went from strength to strength. ben stokes taking a wicket with his very first ball of the day. he enjoyed that one. new zealand ultimately dismissed, doubly as far as england are concerned. england are taking that final wicket which takes them through to the world cup semifinal. it has been a nerve—racking ride to get here, but for the first time in some 27 years, they are through to last four of the world cup. the key elements to eglin‘s game seem to be prospering. you mentioned the key opening partnership and also at their pace attack. these are the things that made engler the pre—tournament
6:36 pm
favourites. that's right, that opening partnership betweenjason roy and jonny bairstow was interesting that it went jason was injured, that is when england seem to come unstuck. he built such momentum at the start of the innings along withjenny boyce though. their partnership is so key as far as england are concerned. —— jonny ba i rstow. england are concerned. —— jonny bairstow. they never really gave new zealand a snap, they shackled the batsmen early wickets, and new zealand never found a way back. special mention for mark wood who got the stadia run out of kane williamson but to three more wickets. very impressive. an all—round performance from england, showing why the other world number ones, why they wear the peat tournament favourites, i def they convey produce of the sort of ruthlessness that they showed in this sort of match, anything is possible going into the semifinals. likely to be either india or australia, so it will be tough for england, but after the last two performances they will not be
6:37 pm
fearing anyone. while the cricketers are heading through in the north east... another home favourite is not... in south west london. british number one kyle edmund is out of wimbledon after a second round defeat to fernando verdasco. and he wasn't the only british player to lose today. john watson is there and can tell us more. it might be disappointed, shoe support for the two british players, kyle edmund ever watson given prime spots on the show courts, hoping to become the first british players enter the third round of the singles, but kyle and's run ended by fernando verdasco a few moments ago on centre court, and earlier in the day heather watson was come doubly beaten by a net content that.
6:38 pm
right from the beginning it was clear this would be gruelling. but edmund soon had centre court clapping along to his beat. it looked so good, first sec check, second set check. cat and mouse rallies. the mouse pad back. but fernando verdasco would pounce any slip—up. inspired is notorious for five set comebacks. whether kyle edmund chances buckling, concern for britain's number one was growing. but ask oh has been right as high as seventh in the world, and here he says to chance to take a vice —like grip. the resistance gave in. this quite literally a defeat as painful as they come. meanwhile there is plenty of heavy lifting ahead for heather watson in order to improve her 2019, hedger has been farfrom jolly. she won just four of her singles matches before today, but she sought to swat away any such
6:39 pm
concerns. the estonian has right more than 100 places above watson, thatis more than 100 places above watson, that is a chasm in tennis terms. her reward, the first set on the scoreboard. before long watson's women dead which is wasted away, the opponent got a line of her own.|j just felt like i had so many chances. i wasn't able to play aggressive tennis, i went on the back food. a bad day for the brits, but there are others to continue carrying the torch. joe, kyle so close with those two games away from booking his place in the third round, he he had that nasty fall which seems to have jarred his knee. that has read unravel. yes, he had a big lead, and i sure that shocked him because he has had a knee problem for months
6:40 pm
going back to last year. bobbie made him a bit uncertain moving on the court, but it is a shame to get so near and not quite do it. huge support for him on centre today as i was on court number one for heather watson. we know her best grand slam performance has been reaching the third round, she has done so here three times previously. why is that she has not been able to get into the second week? heather plays quite well on grass, but coming into their she had fully had many wins, i doubt think she is very relieved to get into the first round where perhaps he did not play that well, but still w011 he did not play that well, but still won the match. today the first set was tight, she had chances here and they are but her opponent has won a lot of matches as she has a top player, so adjust got tougher and tougher. only harriet dart and johanna konta left, we will get more from you in a moment, bullets benyu some of the other talking points. the three—time grand slam champion
6:41 pm
sta n the three—time grand slam champion stan wawrinka is out, beaten and five set today, see them get upset against the unseeded american riley apel against the unseeded american riley apel, who stays at a huge six so off as they wawrinka had that big serve to co nte nt as they wawrinka had that big serve to content web. with pointing out favre because the last 90 when a grand slam other than novak rock, rough andi grand slam other than novak rock, rough and i dial and roger. you feel for wawrinka, se running out of chances? what a win for him. karolina pliskova one, these born champion one of the potential failure to win the rebels entitled this year. the third seed wrapping up this year. the third seed wrapping up her match, a huge serve, she will bea up her match, a huge serve, she will be a contender this year. you have to fight her chances. she is into the third round. never been passed the third round. never been passed the fourth round here at wimbledon, you think you she will do better than that they see are. simona halep, former french open champion, she is also through, it was an all
6:42 pm
remaining encounter this one. she came to 6—3, 4—6, 6—2, so simona halep safely through. we know her calibre in the grand slams as well. the other courts, let's benyu up to date with novak djokovic. the men's number one, in action at the moment against dennis could lower of the united states. novak djokovic has made quick work in this one. he has done really well here. five games are in that first set, so novak djokovic racing through this one i gazed a player with pointing out has reached the fourth round previously, and when he did that he beat alex thereafter for losing to merrin cilic in the fourth round. he has clearly got some pedigree on the grass, but against a play—off novak djokovic's calibre you that novak
6:43 pm
djokovic's calibre you that novak djokovic is the defending champion will have too much to book his place in the second round. court number one, bringing you up—to—date, jesus traced through on a cocoa and a cover against caroline wozniacki, it was the russian who beat wozniacki at the french open. just a a few weeks ago. caroline wozniacki a grand slam cabin herself, one ds gillian ( last year that she lifted the title. wozniacki a big name in the title. wozniacki a big name in the women's draw dacia at webber dent. you would fancy her chances despite the level pegging at that first set. wozniacki will feel that she could progress to the second round once again. you were watching simona halep today, what did you make of her and will she be a contender? it was a very tough
6:44 pm
match. strange when you play someone from your country, aired out a bit more attention. a bit of controversy at the end and the last game when the umpire really got the call wrong. gave the point to simona halep when it should not have been. not really, didn't change the whole match but are lucky. what do we make of the women's draw, it feels like had opened up. naomi osaka going out. we know the quality of ashleigh barty. who would you see as one of the favourites? event after event on the favourites? event after event on the women's tour, it is hard to pick a winner. pliskova playing really great grass court tennis, and i think it is about time she won a grand slam. ashleigh barty may have something to say, and serena williams may have something to say, she has belly said her knee is ok, she has belly said her knee is ok, she is fit and healthy. just like we welcome to her in the doubles. partnering alongside andy murray in
6:45 pm
the mixed doubles. what chances do you feel as far as british success this year is concerned, we know there are only two players left in there are only two players left in the women's singles stop everyone looking to johanna konta, the women's singles stop everyone looking tojohanna konta, how do you fa ncy looking tojohanna konta, how do you fancy her chances? i think she will probably play sloane stephens which will be a tough match but she has beaten her. on a grass court i would go with johanna konta, beaten her. on a grass court i would go withjohanna konta, she will have to play well, but she can do it. who knows? she is in that top bit where it is staff, packed full of really good grass court players. i think she has got the tougher end of the draw. it will be fascinating. we know that serena williams has given everybody a boost here. having said that she will play mixed doubles alongside andy murray this year, andy got everyone excited saying he was going to play any men's doubles but it is the linkup play alongside serena williams in the mixed doubles which will give the british faithful plenty to shout about. not least
6:46 pm
with jamie murray teaming up with better pneumatic science in the mixed doubles. an interesting one,j clarke, another brit playing alongside cocoa golf any mixed doubles that draw was made today. plenty of excitement any murray household with the brothers. set to potentially meet in the men's doubles and maybe even ending mixed doubles and maybe even ending mixed doubles as well. this is what she had to say. i was try to figure last time he played mixed doubles i thick it was at the olympics in 2012. long time since he played make, but what an opportunity. they have both got good form so hopefully they can be the perfect match. we could see both meeting in the men's doubles. how does that make you feel? you never look below your first
