CRICKET

LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 11: England batsman Chris Woakes acknowledges the applause from the crowd as the players leave the field due to bad light during Day 3 of the 2nd Test Match between England and India at Lord's Cricket Ground on August 11, 2018 in London, England.

Chris Woakes leaves the Lord’s outfield to a standing ovation.

Chris Woakes’ maiden Test century and record stand with Jonny Bairstow put England out of sight against India on day three of the second Specsavers Test at Lord’s.

Woakes (120no), recalled after injury here as a replacement for Ben Stokes while England’s premier all-rounder has been otherwise engaged at Bristol Crown Court this week, marked the occasion memorably.

He became the seventh Englishman to put his name on the Lord’s honours boards as both batsman and bowler during a partnership with Bairstow (93) which realised 189, helped the hosts recover from 131 for five to 357 for six by stumps and is their best for the sixth wicket against India.

Manchester United opened their season with a hard-fought victory over Leicester despite Jose Mourinho’s disgruntlement over signings – now it’s the turn of transfer-starved Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino named a World Cup star-studded squad to take on Newcastle at St James’ Park, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris all among the starters. No new signings, of course – they became the first Premier League team not to make one since the transfer window was created in 2003.

Rafa Benitez has not been pleased by Newcastle’s business, either – but who will do the business today? Follow live updates throughout the day – the Premier League is back!
