oval invincibles have beaten manchester originals by nine runs in london to win the first match of the men's hundred competiton. invincibles skipper sam billings must�*ve thought it had worked out after losing the toss and being sent in as he helped himself to 49 runs in a total of 145 for eight and in response it was another sam but of the curran variety who took two wickets including the key figure of carlos brathwaite late on which took the wind out of the visiting teams sails and saw the invincibles take victory at the oval. sunil narine, i mean, mystery spin plays a huge part in the short form after the game. to have him as kind of a secret weapon to use is a huge bonus. but again, you look at the four international guys, they played a lot of cricket for england, a lot of different skills. kind of covers or basis, really. there's a lot of options. it was a mixed day for the british players in the fourth women's
golf major of the year, the evian championship in france. the leaders are on six under with england's georgia hall four strokes further back as lydia campbell reports. after a two—year break due to the pandemic the appian championship has returned to sun soaked france. at the top of the leaderboard is world number 113, the top of the leaderboard is world numberiis, recon the top of the leaderboard is world number 113, recon after she made her best start to a major. she is tied at 6—under par alongside america's knoll. former open champion georgia hall is britain's highest place player. she is four also lead into under as she aims for the second major winner of her career. ireland's maguire has had a brilliant season so far. another in oppressive round of 69 here means that getting caught spot for his growing ever louder. spare a thought though for seven—time major winner
park. she tackled this shot with one footin park. she tackled this shot with one foot in the water only to end up right back where she started. scenes that make us all feel a little bit better about our own call. now to the rugby league world cup which is scheduled to be played in england this autumn — and the news that australia and new zealand have pulled out of the tournament — citing "player welfare and safety concerns" related to covid—19, and want it postponed until next year. they're the two biggest sides in the men's and women's games — and the withdrawal will also affect the wheelchair competition. the rugby football league have hit back strongly criticising the decision — saying they've done all they can to alleviate any fears. the rugby league world cup organisers had been bending over backwards for many months to accommodate all of the concerns raised by the australians and the kiwi's and we believed that they were in a situation
into place where they were willing to come, so this decision has come as a huge blow, and i'm sorry to say that i have no choice but to call this a selfish parochial and cowardly decision. they are now going to have to turn around to their players, their men, their women and their disability athletes and say to them that because of their decision, they are not able to participate in a world cup that should be the pinnacle of their career. i think that is going to be very difficult. the players want to come, and i think leadership of our sport in those countries has taken that away from them. there was one game in super league tonight where huddersfield winger jermaine mcgillvary scored four tries as the giants beat fourth placed hull fc 40—26. the 33—year—old former england and great britain international was unstoppable in his sides eight try victory as he helped his team to a first win since the 23rd of may but they still sit second bottom of the table. after a year of delays the 2020
olympics finally get under way in tokyo tomorrow, with the games�* opening ceremony. and two gold medallists from rio will be leading out team gb — sailor hannah mills and rower moe sbihi. mills — here on the left — says she's overwhelmed to be chosen as a flag bearer. in a break from tradition, each nation has been allowed to nominate one female and one male representative. mills and sbihi were selected from a group of athletes put forward by their sports, as encompassing the olympic and team gb values. to be selected as a rower, and indeed the fact in a very olympic based sport, it doesn't create superstars. so to be the face alongside hannah and i think it is such a fall in nominal role. ijust hope that it will show that a normal kid from a normal comprehensive secondary school can be the person thatis secondary school can be the person that is leading out the team at the
olympic games. the men's football tournament is underway. brazil — gold medallists in rio 5 years ago — got off to the perfect start with a big 4—2 win over germany in yokohama. it was a rematch of the 2016 final, which brazil won on penalties and they took the game by storm — everton's richarlison opening the scoring. and he was in the mood for more too as he scored a first—half hat—trick to put brazil 3—nil up. germany then scored two of their own but this brilliant goal from paulinho put the result beyond any doubt for brazil. elsewhere... mexico thrashed france 4—1. the pick of their goals coming from sebastian cordova, early in the second half. and for all the latest on the first leg matches in the second qualifying round for the europa conference league head to the bbc sport website round but that's all the sport for now.
they heatwave is coming to an end, it may not feel like it right away because it's been so hot for so long. and in northern ireland on thursday, we beat the all—time high record once again, 31.4 celsius, that's three times in the space of a week that northern ireland has beaten its all—time high temperature record. and the amber warning from the met office of extreme heat is still in force for friday, that's because the temperatures will remain high during the night and during the daytime. you can see clear skies across many through the early hours in some areas, temperature is still around 20 degrees celsius. but it is quiet on the weather front, at least for now. areas, but through the evening and into afternoon, some coastal towns and cities along the north sea coasts will probably stay cloudy, fairly cool as well, relatively speaking, but with a breeze blowing out of the east and that heat still travelling towards the west, this is where we are going to have the higher temperatures.
so once again, 30 degrees is just about possible in northern ireland, high 20s, across in wales, maybe the midlands. look at that, only 2a degrees expected in london. lots of sunshine, the possibility of a thunderstorm during the afternoon, and then in the evening, clouds are increasing in the southwest of the country. so friday night, we could see some thunderstorms, and that heralds a really thundery weekend for many of us with slow—moving downpours brought by this area of low pressure on saturday and on sunday. the best of the weather will actually be across scotland will be. where it's further south, you can see from morning onwards, we've got cloud, outbreaks of rain, some thunderstorms, remember, these are slow—moving storms, so a lot of rainfall in a relatively small area, in a short space of time, leading to potential flash floods. temperatures quite a bit lower, mostly in the low 20s.
similar weather expected on sunday, if anything, the storms could be even more severe across some southern and southeastern areas. again, the best of the weather out towards the northwest. glasgow could be the warm spot, possibly northern ireland as well around 2a celsius. and the cool weather is expected next week with the low pressure close by bringing freasher conditions. that's your weather.
