and the future of the british grand prix has been secured for the next five years with a new agreement between formula one and silverstone. hello there and welcome to the programme, where we start with the news that india have been knocked out of the cricket world cup while new zealand move through to sunday's final at lords. the black caps pulled off an unlikely 18 run win at old trafford and our sports correspondentjoe wilson was there. there is a sense of surprise, certainly shocked still around this pa rt certainly shocked still around this part of manchester. notjust that india, the well cricket superpower, are out, but the fact that they could not chase down 2a2 with this much. remember, these are the top order batsmen are rohit sharma, with 500 and the world cup so far, this isa 500 and the world cup so far, this is a top order of virat kohli, while‘s best batsmen. russell is
there as well. yet these three macro batsmen all fell —— these three batsmen all fell —— these three batsmen all fell —— these three batsmen all fell. it was unbelievable when it read five — three. what made it enthralling throughout the afternoon was that india was getting in touch. we had to try to hit texas. he was the one play in the indian team who was scoring at a decent rate of more than one run able. when you are trying to hit sixes will not always come. eventually he found zealand's captain. imagine being under this one. at this stage it seemed like the world cup was on the line. even when jadeja was gone, the world cup was on the line. even whenjadeja was gone, ms dhoni was still there. they put on a 100 partnership. a great throw from martin guptill to get that run out. that is when hope died. new zealand we re that is when hope died. new zealand were in the final four years ago. maybe we should stop thinking of it asa maybe we should stop thinking of it as a surprise. having settled that, both england and australia will play
in the second semi—final tomorrow. they will be secretly, privately glad that they might be playing new zealand are not india. at the halfway stage we sort of wanted 240, 250, and we knew we would be competitive if we got back because the surface played the way it did. but then to have the start of the ball we did was an outstanding way to try nd kick things off and try to get into a position of strength and i thought the way the bowlers and the field operated throughout on a big field on a surface which they had to adapt differently again it was a great effort. new zealand will face the winner of thursday's semifinal at edgbaston between reigning champions australia and hosts england. pre—tournament favourites england lost to australia in the group stage but recovered to reach their first semi since 1992 with wins against india and new zealand. i think we are probably a different
tea m i think we are probably a different team that played four games ago, that one three games ago. i think the loss against sri lanka hurt us. there was an overhang into the lord's game. and then when we came here we managed to produce something similarto here we managed to produce something similar to the cricket we have been playing over the last four years —— produce something. we improved again. and tomorrow we will look to do the same. we are full of confidence going into this game. obviously england have probably been the front runners in world cricket of the past four years, the way they have changed the game, the gameplan in particular has been very aggressive, taking it to the opposition. last we know how they are going to play, they know how we will play, we have played a lot of the last couple of years. it will be whoever holds the nerve, whoever takes the half chances, however stars of the game really well, whether with bat or ball, it will be so important for either side. -- whoever start of the game. —— whoever start of the game.

quarterfinals. the super eagles, 2—1 when was not just quarterfinals. the super eagles, 2—1 when was notjust notable for a late winner, but for the first time in an africa cup of nations where video technology has been used to overturn a referee decision. south africa clawed their way back in after the goal was adjudged to not who've been offside. a decision the moroccan referee had earlier given. it was, of course, overturned by the video officials watching on. nigeria will go through and play either algeria 01’ go through and play either algeria or ivory coast on sunday. it was amazing. i think i forgot what to do. it was a moment of ecstasy. i forgot how dry the pitch was and tried to make a slide and almost made a flip. you have to laugh sometimes. i'm very happy for the boys. earlier in the day, senegal booked a place with a more routine 1-0 booked a place with a more routine 1—0 victory over benin. the second
half winner. they will meet the winner of thursday's lay semi—final between madagascar and tunisia. senegal and nigeria already through, who willjoin them on thursday? with the british grand prix coming up at the weekend, it was announced on wednesday that silverstone will stay on the formula 1 calendar for another five years. circuit bosses had exercised a break clause in their f1 contract with concerns over rising costs, and sunday's race would have been the last. the british grand prix has been held at silverstone every year since 1987. kawhi leonard has left reigning nba champions the toronto raptors just three weeks after winning the championship to join the la clippers in a three year deal to believed to be over 100 million dollars. the clippers have confirmed the free agency move on social media with leonard set to link up with paul george who was traded from oklahoma city thunder which has seen the californian franchise tipped for next season's title. to rugby league in australia, where a last minute try from nsw
fullback james tedesco saw the blues beat queensland 26 points to 20 in sydney to claim a 2—1 state of origin series win. the maroans had won the past seven series deciders and drew level,with two minutes to go after trailing 20—8. however, tedesco's second try of the night in the final play was decisive with the sydney roosters full—back also named man of the series as new south wales claimed back—to—back series wins for the first time since 2005. an absolute cracker of a match. a try in the last minute to win it from that man. for everything else, england up against australia in edgbaston, go to the website. or download the bbc sport up. but from me, tulsen tollett, and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye.
well, it's been a very humid couple of days across many parts of the uk. temperatures have got up to 27 degrees. some of that humidity is going to spark off a few thunderstorms. certainly across northern and eastern parts of the country on thursday. not everybody is going to get them though. this is what it looks like through the early hours. so already some showers dotted around across the uk. the south is largely dry early in the morning. and very warm 15—16 degrees after dawn, just in the north—west there, maybe around 12 degrees in stornoway. now, low pressure is crossing the country on thursday. that's going to spark off some thunderstorms. once again across scotland and eastern parts of the uk. further south it is looking dry. the weather is looking absolutely fine for wimbledon. partly cloudy skies. temperatures around the mid—20s and light winds. but still quite humid. so the forecast for the morning, showers possible almost anywhere
across central, northern england, scotland, maybe one or two in northern ireland. it is later on from lincolnshire, the eastern counties, and eastern scotland where we will see the heaviest of the showers brewing. 20 degrees in the north. in the south, around 25 or 26. another warm, humid day. let's zoom into eastern scotland. these showers will continue to move across scotland into the evening hours and, again, thunderstorms possible almost anywhere from yorkshire northwards. thursday night into friday, that low pressure pushes away. this high pressure is trying to build on that will help improve the weather as we head into the weekend. here is friday's weather forecast. there is a shift in the wind direction, coming from the north—west. it will put away some of that humidity. temperatures will drop a touch as well. on friday, again, further showers are possible in some eastern areas of the uk. temperatures typically around the low 20s, maybe touching 23, 2a degrees in southern
parts of the uk. that's friday. let's have a look at saturday. the winds mostly in from the north. so feeling a little bit fresher, i think, across the majority of the uk. it will cloud over at times. there is the chance of one or two showers, but on the whole it is a dry saturday for most of us. not a bad one. quite a bright one. temperatures typically 21—22 degrees. sunday looks fairly similar as well. in cardiff, 2a, light winds, really a very pleasant saturday and sunday on the way. bye— bye.
