Bold and brave Root century puts England back in the driving seat

England’s risky sweeping strategy pays off in second TestEngland 290 & 324-9; Sri Lanka 336. England lead by 278 runsA brave and brilliant century by Joe Root has given England the chance of a famous victory in a compelling Test match in Kandy. The England captain’s innings was brave not because he was ever in any physical danger – no pace bowler propelled a ball at him until the 55th over – but because the conception of this knock and the approach of the entire England lineup was so unusually bold and risky.They swept and they scurried and they swept again. Their first seven batsmen were all out sweeping, which can easily prompt old-timers to rail against the modern way. Thus they risked severe censure from the wise men in the boxes if their strategy failed abysmally. It did not. They have scored 324 for nine on what is regarded as a Bunsen burner, seldom seen in England (except at Ciderabad). Continue reading...

Steve Ogrizovic: ‘I enjoyed the police. I was good at clearing bars and clubs’

In the first of a series on 90s throwback footballers, Coventry’s former goalkeeper and current coach discusses the team’s shaves with relegation and his father’s escape from the Nazis“He had a trench coat on, he was fleeing the village, and Nazis were opening up on them. They just ran.” Steve Ogrizovic is explaining why his family settled in Mansfield and how a harrowing journey made by his father – ending in England but starting in Yugoslavia during the second world war – shaped his life. Nicola Ogrizovic had already seen his own father shot dead when he fled his home as a 14-year-old in 1942, leaving behind his mother and two sisters.“That was the last time he ever saw his village and his family,” Ogrizovic says. “There was a lake – he went over it and into the woods. It was only when he felt safe in the forest that he checked himself. His coat had been flapping in the wind, there were bullet holes both sides but nothing hit him. He spent the next two years living rough, on the move all the time, evading capture.” Continue reading...

England aim to weather Women’s World T20 storm with win over South Africa

• Heavy rain has hampered England’s tournament• Win against South Africa will ensure final four spotIf England can overcome South Africa, the team they squeezed past in last year’s World Cup semi-final, they can go to sleep on Friday having eliminated their recent rivals and secured safe passage to the final four of the Women’s World T20.That, according to coach Mark Robinson, would be some achievement given the hurdles presented to the team in terms of player availability and preparation in St Lucia, constant rain last weekend still preventing their bowlers from training at full tilt.

England v All Blacks, delicious drop shots and teen strikers | Classic YouTube

This week’s roundup also features a monumental high school football comeback and vintage Australian motorsport mayhem1) It’s England against the All Blacks at Twickenham this weekend, which is a rivalry of sorts … albeit deeply one-sided as New Zealand have won 16 of the 23 contests there since 1925. The Red Rose’s last victory was in 2012, featuring three tries in eight minutes and a show-stopping performance from Manu Tuilagi; for balance, witness Joe Rokocoko in his pomp in 2006 as the hosts were thrashed 41-20, the highlight being Carl Hayman scoring one of his two international tries, and what a try it was. Perhaps the greatest ever contest between the two teams, at least on English shores, was this try-fest from 2002; or maybe it’s this 26-26 humdinger from 1997. The opening match of the 1991 World Cup included a big hit by Peter Winterbottom on Graeme Bachop; the great No 7 had also been in action eight years earlier as England claimed their first win over New Zealand at Twickenham for 47 years.2) No matter what transpires on Saturday afternoon, though, it’s unlikely to top Auguy Slowik’s 80m try for Jersey against London Irish in the Championship last weekend.

Richard Scudamore’s £5m reflects greedy and ruthless Premier League | David Conn

The executive chairman’s departure sits awkwardly next to fudged pledges to help football’s grassrootsIt was strangely appropriate that London was in political chaos over the UK’s impending exit from the European Union when the Premier League clubs gathered unruffled at their meeting and awarded their executive chairman, Richard Scudamore, an eye-popping £5m for choosing to leave his job. There they were, modern representatives of football clubs formed as social enterprises in Victorian England, by churches, schools and enlightened employers, presenting an image of being in a kind of money bubble, voting to give grossly excessive thanks to the man who has enriched them over 19 years.

Cricketers risk being caught out in quest for life beyond the boundary | Andy Bull

Pally dressing-room habits prove hard to undo for some of those hoping to forge new careers outside the sportIt’s a long way from Burton upon Trent to Galle and in the Hilton at St George’s Park last Thursday you could feel every yard of the gap. Away in Sri Lanka, England had just declared their second innings and were now pressing on towards victory in the first Test. Back in the Midlands, a couple of dozen of their county colleagues were in the Hilton’s Howard Wilkinson suite, listening to a presentation about how to get ahead in sustainable investment. Earlier that morning, they had sat through a talk on how improve their networking and presentation techniques, and later that day they had another scheduled how to build a LinkedIn profile. Outside, the rain beat against the windows. Related: Ben Stokes to bat at three as England look to win series in Kandy Continue reading...
