hello and welcome to sportsday. yes, good evening, welcome along to the sportsday. let's start this friday with the one story that has dominated the headlines all week racism in cricket. today, the sport's top figures met at the 0val and apologised unreservedly, saying they were shocked, saddened and shamed by the testimony they heard from azeem rafiq. on tuesday, when rafiq spoke to a committee of mps, he described english cricket as institutionally racist. today, members of the england and wales cricket board were joined by representatives from all 18 first—class counties and the players' union, with the pressure on to come up with a plan of action, that goes far enough to tackle this issue. azeem rafiq has shined a light on
6:34 pm
our game that has shocked, ashamed and saddened us all.— and saddened us all. racism and discrimination _ and saddened us all. racism and discrimination is _ and saddened us all. racism and discrimination is a _ and saddened us all. racism and discrimination is a blight - and saddened us all. racism and discrimination is a blight on - and saddened us all. racism and discrimination is a blight on our. discrimination is a blight on our game. so the azeem rafiq and all of those who have suffered or experience any form of discrimination in our sports we are truly sorry. i was sport did not welcome you, our game did not accept you as we should have done. we apologise unreservedly for the suffering you have faced. we stand together against discrimination at all levels. and in all its forms and we are united as a sport to do whatever it takes to eradicate the scourge from our game. we will continue to listen, to make swift and positive change to the culture of the game and the embrace and celebrate differences everywhere knowing that with diversity we are stronger. today is a game we discussed a series of agreements to
6:35 pm
make cricket as a where everyone feels safe and everyone is included. now finalise the detail and publish these actions next week. our game must win back your trust. we're joined now by our senior sports news correspondent laura scott. how much pressure was tom harrison under today? he went into today's game meeting under a huge amount of pressure present at the following his appearance in front of the mps earlier this week which they draw criticism from some county chairman and there were some reports in the newspapers that there might have been a revolt at today's meeting and perhaps even a vote of but we were at the oval today and on their way and they said they did support tom harrison and they had been impressed by him. and actually after the meeting we learned it had not been raised at all whether he should or
6:36 pm
should not stay on as chief executive of the england and wales cricket board. telling us they have bigger things to focus on that his role. what was interesting was that harrison did say he had received the backing of the counties and other representatives of the game during the meeting today at the oval. he said he was determined and motivated to lead cricket out of this crisis and make sure sport was somewhere where everyone felt a sense of belonging. he said he wanted to make sure the plaintiff racism was addressed. 0f sure the plaintiff racism was addressed. of course the pressure on him will no doubt continue because the focus will be on how much the action that was announced today works in addressing what has proved to be an almighty scandal and involving cricket.— to be an almighty scandal and involving cricket. what exactly did the sa in involving cricket. what exactly did they say in terms _ involving cricket. what exactly did they say in terms of— involving cricket. what exactly did they say in terms of the _ involving cricket. what exactly did they say in terms of the tangible i they say in terms of the tangible action that they may well be able to have and to produce? the? action that they may well be able to have and to produce?— have and to produce? they did not reall cive have and to produce? they did not really give any _ have and to produce? they did not

6:38 pm
harrison said the action that was announced today or permitted today would not be the silver bullet and was very much a first step in addressing the problem and he said the proof will be in the delivery. well to another development today — as nottinghamshire cricket club have extended the scope of their investigation into the historic, conduct of alex hales, following the publication in a newspaper today of a photo, taken in 2009. the former england batsman has apologised after attending a new years eve party dressed in a racially offensive manner. tupacis tupac is and was and always will be my famous musician ? favourite musician and a wink as him. i realise this was incredibly disrespectful and i apologise for the offence that is has no doubt caused and it was reckless and foolish on my behalf so i want to apologise for that and apologise to the club for the embarrassment it
6:39 pm
caused and i guess my 20s was full of mistakes like that. reckless mistakes off the field that cost me and let down family and that down team—mates and let down friends and close relationships i had during my 20s and a guess some of those decisions i will regret for the rest of my life and the last fear is being away from the spotlight a little bit has given me a chance to train better myself and keep getting better at cricket and getting better off the field as well and it's something ifeel like off the field as well and it's something i feel like i've off the field as well and it's something ifeel like i've done and continuing to strive today. well issues and controversy for the sport in england — and also too in australia ahead of the ashes. tim paine has stepped down as test captain after a historical investigation into sexually explicit texts sent to a female colleague. the investigation, in his words, "exonerated" him, but he decided to leave his role after he learned his texts were set to be revealed publicly. patrick gearey has this report.
6:40 pm
we have been here before. the australian captain, the haunted look, the parting words of pain. today i am announcing my decision to stand down as the captain of the australian men's testing. nearly four years ago i was involved in a text exchange with a van colleague and i recently became aware that this private text exchange was going to become public. upon reflection, write my actions in 2007 do not meet the standard of an australian cricket captain.— the standard of an australian cricket captain. they sexually ex - licit cricket captain. they sexually explicit messages _ cricket captain. they sexually explicit messages sent - cricket captain. they sexually explicit messages sent to - cricket captain. they sexually explicit messages sent to an | explicit messages sent to an employee in 2017 were investigated and he was cleared of misconduct. but cricket australia said they did not condone his language or behaviour. when they appointed him australian captain, behaviour was top of the agenda. this was 2018,

the american john kaplan the americanjohn kaplan are all in the lead on ten on the part going into the third round. three to the last four of the atp tour final and he will have a decisive good match in a third set tie—break. some of the biggest names in tennis, are demanding to know, where peng shuai is, as concerns for the chinese player grow. serena williams, says the case should be investigated, and said it had left her "devastated and shocked". peng hasn't been seen since alleging she was forced into a sexual relationship with former china vice—premier, jang gowlee. the authenticity of an email said to be from peng to the women's tennis association has been called into question, and the international tennis federation is among those calling for authorities to investigate.well earlier our tennis correspondent russell fuller spoke to the wta chairman steve simon
6:44 pm
we have not heard any response back which usually is not common when you receive an e—mailfrom which usually is not common when you receive an e—mail from someone and you send something right back usually a reply that comes back pretty quickly. and the fact that we have not heard anything since that was said is a signal. the other thing that's difficult and they don't accept is that when you come out with allegations such as she bade and the detail associated with it in those allegations and then send me you receive an e—mail reflecting that everything is ok and i'm great and there's no issues and there is no allegation here ijust have to struggle with that. a lot of decisions are driven by politics or by business and by money. that's
6:45 pm
reality and it's something we have to deal with and redo and that's ok. but there's also issues especially when it gets into socially based issues and human rights issues and issues and human rights issues and issues such as sexual assault and harassment and we cannot stand by and the compromises that come from the decisions that are tied to politics, business, and money. this is one of those and i think this is a right and wrong issue and ifeel very strongly about that and it's something that has to change in our world of decision—making. so something that has to change in our world of decision—making. 50 in something that has to change in our world of decision-making.— world of decision-making. so in the amount of money _ world of decision-making. so in the amount of money would _ world of decision-making. so in the amount of money would prevent. world of decision-making. so in the | amount of money would prevent you from putting the wta tour out of china if your conditions are not met? ., , china if your conditions are not met? . , . , china if your conditions are not met? . . ,, ., met? that is correct. this is not about the _ met? that is correct. this is not about the money, _ met? that is correct. this is not about the money, this - met? that is correct. this is not about the money, this is - met? that is correct. this is not about the money, this is about. met? that is correct. this is not - about the money, this is about doing what's right and making sure that mike went safe and free and everything that comes with it based upon the allegations and want to

6:47 pm
platform, his voice to say that we have a duty to look at where we are going and to try and make significant changes to the places that we are, to erase the conversation. that he does not want to come to places any more and go with the flow i think and that's a really important move away from lewis hamilton two years ago. in terms of the rivalry i think everybody has been crying out for a year is for a rivalry and we have got it this season. it is fascinating and these next three races who knows i suppose. i think it is captivating _ races who knows i suppose. i think it is captivating everybody. - races who knows i suppose. i think it is captivating everybody. it's - it is captivating everybody. it's really one of the generation. we have seen some great championship battles in the past but this one really is out there as one of the very best. distended by m points but this time last week and present we thought he would go away with a 30 point advantage so that's how quickly it can twist and turn narrative changes and now hamilton
6:48 pm
has a really good stab at this title as well. it's a fascinating match. in terms of what you have seen so far today from practice any clues as to where that we may come on sunday? it's really difficult to now. none of the teams have any data or information on the circuits so today was very much fact—finding. they'll be running lots of computer simulations overnight and their spare drivers will be doing laps as well as their computers. he saw the mercedes and read both assets, hamilton did not seem to get to grips that quickly but i'm sure by the time it comes the qualifying on the time it comes the qualifying on the race it will be a battle between these two legendary rivals.
6:49 pm
the premier league returns this weekend after the international break .. for some teams it's been a chance for a re—set , none more so than manchester united and 0le gunnar solskjaer. before the break united managed just one league win in six matches, and slumped to chastening defeats at home to liverpool and manchester city. solskjaer returned to norway for a spell but also says he's had time to work on things with his players ahead of tomorrow's match away at watford. this week we have worked on a few things. we prioritise a few things. but we have to improve on. and that we know the form has not been been good and performances have not been good and performances have not been good enough but we know we can do better and we should do better and we think we will do better and it's down to performances on the day and human beings sometimes you hate and it goes out and sometimes it goes in and that can change your mood, the atmosphere, we have got to focus on

getting the start rights tomorrow. ahead of manchester city's game against everton on sunday, the club has confirmed that kevin de bruyne won't be involved after testing positive for coronavirus. (00v)manager pep guardiola said de bruyne had tested positive manager pep guardiola said de bruyne had tested positive after returning from international duty with belgium. he'll isolate for 10 days and — as well as sunday s premier league match against everton — he'll also miss wednesday s champions league game with ps6 and the following weekend s home game against west ham. derby county manager wayne rooney insists his side can still escape relegation despite the deduction of 21 points by the english football league. derby were docked 12 points in septemberfor going into administration and a further nine earlier this week for breaches of accounting rules. rooney's side will go into sunday's game with championship leaders bournemouth on minus 3 points, currently 18 from safety, but he refuses to accept that dropping into league one is inevitable.
6:51 pm
of course it is possible. it will be difficult but if we are being realistic it's a huge challenge which will be tough and it can happen and it takes an incredibly good run and the team struck a lot of points but we are going into each game to pick up as many points as he can and we will see where that takes us. we started the year without fans in stadiums but murrayfield, the aviva, the principality and twickenham will be bouncing for one last time this weekend for the men's autumn internationals. england face south africa for the first time since losing the world cup final two years ago but with an inexperienced side, can they upset the world champions? ben croucher looks ahead... before the sunset on international rugby in 2021, time for one last

6:57 pm
it has been a problem ? predominately cloudy day but some places have seen some pleasant sunshine. and again the eastern side of scotland towards aberdeen we have seen temperatures today up to 17 celsius. that mild air has been with us to end the working week but it's all about to change if you have not heard yet. temperatures will tumble down by the time you get to sunday and will keep the cold air throughout next week. now, that mild air�*s been with us to end the working week, but it's all about to change, if you haven't heard yet. so, whilst we've been in this mild stream of atlantic south westerlies during the day today, it's behind this band of rain that will continue for the north and west of scotland across 0rkney, into the western isles this evening. behind that, the cold air is sitting. to the south of that, where we have got some breaks in the cloud, temperatures could overnight dip to six or seven degrees, but also, there's likely to be mist and low cloud, possibly even a bit of fog around. but certainly some fog around the coasts and over the hills and
6:58 pm
some dank, drizzly weather. 0ur weather front, as you can see, through saturday morning progresses across scotland, northern ireland, so a spell of fairly wet weather. behind it, though, we'll see brighter skies returning. further south, a lot of mist and low cloud again, perhaps some brightness, some sunshine after early fog lifts away, and it will tend to sit on the hills. still relatively mild, but a drop in temperature with the arrival of the brighter skies further north and some blustery showers as the wind direction changes. and that's what will bring about the change in wind direction, and atlantic south—westerly to an arctic northerly for a time through saturday and into sunday. slow to clear away on sunday in the south, so i think we will still see a relatively mild night in southern areas on sunday, but it'll start to feel colder and we've got that frost in the north. and then, we'll see showers coming down that northerly flow, wintry over the hills in the north, perhaps over the hills a little further south, and we'll continue to see showers and quite a strong wind, almost gale force wind blowing through the eastern side of the channel, so across kent and essex with those showers. so, that will accentuate the chill. temperatures at 7—9 celsius, well down on what they have been. as we go through sunday night into monday, that frost therefore becomes more widespread. this is towns and cities,
6:59 pm
