Event of the day

Our event of the day is England against Australia in the ICC Champions Trophy at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. This meeting of the old rivals represents a do-or-die fixture for the Australians, as nothing other than a win will see them through to the semi-final stage of the tournament. Whilst they can count themselves unlucky that the weather has curtailed both their matches so far, they must nonetheless pull out a performance under pressure. England for their part have progressed serenely in the tournament thus far, with two wins over Bangladesh and New Zealand. Despite concerns over the form of opener Jason Roy and the unfortunate injury to front line bowler Chris Woakes, the team is functioning well under the astute leadership of Eoin Morgan.

Our eyes will also be drawn today to the British & Irish Lions next tour match in New Zealand against The Crusaders. After a narrow loss in their last warm-up game against The Blues, they will be looking to put down more of a marker in this run-out against their second super rugby opposition. Scotland host England in 2018 Football World Cup qualifying at Hampden Park in Glasgow. The England rugby team take on Argentina in San Juan, in the first test match of the tour. Simona Halep is up against Jeļena Ostapenko in the Women's final at Roland Garros.
