6:30 pm
lots to come then, but let's start at the t20 world cup where it's been a disappointing day for ireland. they've failed to reach the super 12's — the main draw in the tournament — beaten to it by namibia, the lowest ranked side there — who pulled—off a shock 8 wicket win in sharjah to go through. drew savage was watching the action for us. for the action for us. namibian cricket does not get the action for us. any better than this. through to the get any better than this. through to the super 12 for the first time. a day for ireland to forget. they'd begun well enough — paul stirling and kevin o'brien had the scoreboard moving nicely, against the side ranked 19th in the world. but things slowed down dramatically for ireland
6:31 pm
after the powerplay, stirling out for 38. from 61 for1 in the 8th over, the wickets kept falling — ending up on 125 for 8. it wasn't enough. kevin o'brien's acrobatics kept ireland in it for a while. that brought david wiese to the crease. three days ago he'd helped namibia, to their first world t20 win. now he was at it again. so was gerhard erasmus, with a captain's innings. the party was starting in the stands for namibia and it wasn't long before it spread to the pitch. wiese put ireland out of their misery with an over to spare. namibia look forward to taking their place in the super 12s. drew savage, bbc news well earlier the england bowler alex hartley popped into the studio, she's been covering the t20 action for the bbc and gave me her reaction to ireland's defeat. it isa it is a shock, a massive shock.
6:32 pm
ireland have got test status so that when i have been expecting to get into the super 12 but they are going to that game as favourites. these world tournaments, anything can happen and credit to namibia because they were fantastic today. really just putting their foot on the throat and for ireland, they have to leave the competition, they will be gutted but they will regroup. another t20 world cup next year so they have got to go through the qualifiers again. they will have learned a lot from today and you can just tell from the faces of the ireland players that they were absolutely devastated. bath ireland players that they were absolutely devastated. both parts of the ca and absolutely devastated. both parts of the gay and let _ absolutely devastated. both parts of the gay and let them _ absolutely devastated. both parts of the gay and let them down, - absolutely devastated. both parts of the gay and let them down, not - absolutely devastated. both parts of the gay and let them down, notjust| the gay and let them down, notjust about them but the bowling as well because namibia, one of their players get a decent score step of the captain got 50, but ireland got off to a brilliant power play, took advantage the first six and then a little collapse. lost wickets consistently. and all it took from namibia it was just for somebody to back through and the captain got 50 and saw them over the line. so namibia go through to the next stage along with sri lanka
6:33 pm
who topped group a with 3 wins from three. finishing off by thrashing the netherlands, they skittled the dutch out forjust 44, the sixth lowest score in the tournament's history. it took sri lanka just over seven overs to reach their victory target. they go through to group 1 of the super 12's, which is england's group. england avoided pre—qualifying due to their world ranking, so their first game is tomorrow against the defending champions — west indies — who narrowly beat them in the final of the last t20 world cup — which unbelievably was way back in 2016. but england are now the one day world champions and hoping to make history by holding both titles at the same time. patrick geary reports. these are some of the most destructive backspin in the world. england have their pick of batterers who are prized by t—20 franchise the cluster group. 7 across the globe. even the captain is not sure of his

6:46 pm
for me it's all about what you do in those moments. it's the preparation. they can just be a beautiful moment and i think some of the work that the team is done and some of the think the players have done to use those moments. in so many guys on team have worked and had the foundations. i remember sitting the night for the world cup final and we said this is what we are going to do. the rest of the points were all there, what can we do for others? what extent do you think south africa has become a more inclusive and unified nation since her world cup victory two years ago? i can't tell you that. i don't know if it is unified for people but i have seen
6:47 pm
many people happy. we want to be as unified as we can be, it's a struggle because her every day and we will hopefully get there one day. there's much more awareness now thanks to your work also perhaps athletes like simone biles during the other picks or spoken about her mental health and the unique pressures that sports stars, even the greatest find themselves under at times. do you think this is a particular problem in sport because the expectation that athletes must never show any weakness7 that the expectation that athletes must never show any weakness?- the expectation that athletes must never show any weakness? that i took so much, i never show any weakness? that i took so much. i was — never show any weakness? that i took so much, i was so _ never show any weakness? that i took so much, i was so happy _ never show any weakness? that i took so much, i was so happy for _ never show any weakness? that i took so much, i was so happy for simone, i so much, i was so happy for simone, i was the heavy what she was going through but she stood up and said i'm not ok. that makes me feel ok with not feeling ok sometimes. when you get hurt you must notjust keep on moving forward, and sometimes you take that literally. even you when you were not ok, emotionally that
6:48 pm
you were not ok, emotionally that you can do anything. i'm trying to find a way where i can be open at more vulnerable in front of my kids, i can cry for my kids and my coach. men don't cry, all that kind of stuff, that's absolutely rubbish subway i know you have to go, we have to dynamically make look forward to seeing you in the autumn nationals here in the uk, what are your expectations for those matches come in particular against england who of course the last faced in the world cup final? do you expect a tougher match this time? i'm looking forward to everything. an opportunity to play, and we know, we are looking forward to it we have never beaten wales in how many years come up that's going to be a challenge in scotland is doing very well. it's going to be a challenge but it so that we are looking forward to.

6:52 pm
ashes series. so it might be quite a disjointed lead up for australia. normally you would expect, you know, a third into the australian season, the players will be hitting the ground running and at the peak of their powers, but i doubt they will be able to be at that because just of how the scheduling works. so we have to be in a position to take advantage of that. ie. have to be in a position to take advantage of that.— have to be in a position to take advantage of that. is enough to be at a oint advantage of that. is enough to be at a point now— advantage of that. is enough to be at a point now where _ advantage of that. is enough to be at a point now where you - advantage of that. is enough to be at a point now where you feel- at a point now where you feel comfortable that you can go, that you can tour an environment that feels right for you all? because we know that it has been a difficult year and a half an cricket is a sport that has been affected more by bubbles and travelling within those environments. i5 bubbles and travelling within those environments.— bubbles and travelling within those environments. is good the series is not the environments. is good the series is got the go-ahead _ environments. is good the series is got the go-ahead to _ environments. is good the series is got the go-ahead to come - environments. is good the series is got the go-ahead to come up i environments. is good the series is got the go-ahead to come up with l got the go—ahead to come up with covid is that changes week by week. hard to give guarantees on anything when the situation is so fluid and we have seen in our own country. but we have seen in our own country. but we have seen in the cricketing world is when countries open up, actually
6:53 pm
cricket shuts down. because when you open up a country covid cases rides which means we have to be protected more to keep the test match on so you shut down more. australia is looking to open up more which might mean the players get shut down more but you find a way to enjoy the tour and keep ourselves mentally in the right place to deliver our skills. that's the only important thing for us. and finally — how's this for a find? the women's rugby world cup trophy has just been discovered in an attic — after having been missing for 15 years! england won the famous trophy back in 1994 but it was lost after a new trophy was made. jill burns was a member of the world cup winning team all those years ago — and she explains what happened to it. a very special treasured trophy, and it went out on tour and all road shows after we won in the world cup. it was in the museum briefly before it went back on tour and a you this
6:54 pm
later we start as they does anyone know where the world cup is? and nobody knew where it was. a few weeks ago one of the administrators was clearing out her parents loft, found some old notebooks, handbooks, posters and minutes from meetings. and behind that the box was this box with the treasured world cup in. imagine if they had not found or some were discovered in 50 years' time? we haven't talked with the premier league, it starts this evening with arsenal, they are playing aston villa. and then of course on sunday manchester united against liverpool. there full commentary of this evening's came on five live but for me and the rest of the team coach want to know anything else go to the bbc sport website from all of us it's goodbye.

good evening. the weather has thrown a little bit of everything at us this week, some wet weather, some squally winds, some mild conditions, some chilly conditions. today has been one of the quieter days of the week, with sunshine in some places, but a lot of cloud in others. and that cloud, as you can see from the earlier satellite and radar picture, has been producing some showers. and we will keep a lot of cloud as we head through this evening and tonight. it could turn a bit misty and murky over hills in the west and more generally down towards the south. still some spots of rain and drizzle. where we have clear skies for any length of time, particularly in north east scotland, temperatures will drop away, maybe all the way down to —2 celsius with a touch of frost. but despite a chilly start to saturday for some, the weekend generally speaking will be mild and quite windy, with some rain at times courtesy of this frontal system moving its way quite slowly in from the west. it will be making slow progress. it's running up against this area of high pressure, and that will keep things largely dry across the bulk

of england and wales. a few spots of drizzle in the west, quite a lot of cloud around. the best of any sunshine in the east. southern and eastern parts of scotland will see some sunny spells as well, but for northern ireland and western scotland, slowly but surely this rain will creep its way in. some of that rain will be heavy, accompanied by a strong southerly winds. now, those are the average wind speeds. we could see gusts in western scotland of 50 mph or more. but because the winds are coming up from the south, it is going to feel a bit milder, 12—14 degrees. we move through saturday night, our weather front staggering a little further eastwards, rain through northern ireland into western scotland. eventually some of that rain will get down into england and wales overnight and into the first part of sunday. what we will also see on sunday is some even milder air being scooped up from the south. notice the orange colours here on the chart. so, certainly a mild—feeling day on sunday. quite a lot of cloud around and some showers, some of which will be heavy, possibly thundery in the west. some sunny spells as well, but confirmation of another windy day and another pretty mild one.
6:57 pm
temperatures in parts of north east scotland could get to 15—16 degrees. similar values further south through northern ireland and parts of england and wales. we look ahead to next week, it stays relatively mild. there will be some outbreaks of rain at times. some of that rain heavy and persistent, particularly up towards the north and the west.

this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley. the headlines at 7pm — scientists advising the government say stricter covid measures should be made ready for "rapid deployment", but the prime minister insists plan b for england isn't needed yet. we keep all measures under constant review. we'll do whatever we have to do to protect the public, but the numbers that we're seeing at the moment are fully in line with what we expected. tributes are being paid to cinematographer halyna hutchins, who's died after actor alec baldwin fired a prop gun on the set of his latest film. the film's director was also seriously injured. she had such a strong vibe, such a sense of a commitment to art and the integrity of wanting to make cinema.
