Sussex’s Luke Wright breaks 1,000-run duck to put Worcestershire in peril

• Worcestershire 210; Sussex 251-3 • Wright and Ben Brown put on third century partnership of season Luke Wright passed 1,000 runs for the season for the first time in his 13-year first-class career to help Sussex take charge of their crunch match against Worcestershire in the fight to avoid relegation. Bracketed as a white-ball junkie having played 50 ODIs and 51 T20 internationals for England, it is a sizeable monkey off his back. Wright will have a smaller, slightly less irritating weight on his conscience now as he sits unbeaten overnight on 98, courtesy of 17 boundaries. Continue reading...

US Open 2015: Serena Williams v Kiki Bertens – live!

Tweet Bryan at @BryanAGraham Or email him at bryan.graham@theguardian.com Mardy Fish overcomes anxiety disorder for one final bow at US Open 8.36pm BST First set: Williams 1-0 Bertens* (*denotes next server) Williams has won the toss and elected to serve. A service winner followed by a double-fault makes it 15-15. Bartens sprays a couple of shots long to fall behind 15-40, smacking a ball into the net in disgust. Williams nets a backhand, but another unforced error by Bertens gives Serena the comfortable hold. 8.30pm BST Not much longer now “Two minutes please,” calls the chair umpire as Fetty Wap’s Trap Queen plays over the stadium p.a. Serena’s walkout music for Monday’s first-rounder was Drop That NaeNae, which was pretty awesome. Serena's walkout music for her assault on history: Drop That NaeNae. pic.twitter.com/E72zI0nTHV 8.26pm BST Tale of the tape The players have emerged from the tunnel and are in their warm-ups. Here’s a look at how today’s two combatants match up. 8.20pm BST Preamble Hello and welcome to Arthur Ashe Stadium for today’s US Open second round match between No1 seed Serena Williams and Dutch qualifier Kiki Bertens. Few are giving the world No110 much of a shot in a match that’s generally been viewed as a stepping stone in Serena’s march to the first calendar-year grand slam in 27 years. Bertens herself seemed less than convinced of her chances after a first-round win over Mirjana Lucic-Baroni on Monday. It’s going to be tough. She’s a great player and can make here the one-year slam, but I’m looking forward to it. I hope I can enjoy it. I played [Petra] Kvitova at Wimbledon, so I hope I can move forward from that. 7.30pm BST Bryan will be here shortly. In the meantime why not read Kevin Mitchell’s account of Serena Williams’s first-round win over Vitalia Diatchenko. Serena Williams , as befits the grand dame of tennis, began the pursuit of a calendar grand slam with a regal swat on the first evening of the 2015 US Open. This time, it was the turn of the poor Russian Vitalia Diatchenko, in her second appearance in New York, to fall, almost literally, before the finest player of modern times in a mere half an hour in the Arthur Ashe Stadium. It was not just one-sided, it was farcical. Diatchenko, who has had surgery on her left achilles, served lollipops from the start and retired in tears after winning just five of the 37 points played – as one might expect of someone who pulled out of her last tournament in Vancouver and was double-bageled in Stanford recently. She had her chronically weak ankle strapped at 0-5, then gently rolled over, to the bemusement and mixed sympathy of the crowd. Continue reading...

ECB risking county backlash with plan to cut championship matches

ECB risking county backlash with plan to cut championship matches

• Andrew Strauss backing blueprint to reduce amount of four-day games • County chairmen are concerned about integrity of the competition The England and Wales Cricket Board must decide whether to press ahead with a new-look domestic programme that would see the number of County Championship fixtures cut by two matches and in doing so risk the threat of a backlash. The ECB chief executive, Tom Harrison, and chairman Colin Graves have been working since the start of the year on a restructure of the English game and proposals drawn up by their review committee have been presented to the county chief executives and chairmen over the past two days. While the previously mooted eight or 10-team city-based Twenty20 competition is on hold, an appetite remains to raise the standard of white-ball cricket played domestically as England look to create a pool of players that can compete for both the 2017 Champions Trophy and the World Cup two years later on home soil.
