7:32 pm
thanks forjoining us. this summer has seen england shift the way they approach test cricket — more dynamic, more exciting, more entertaining. the fourth day of the final test against new zealand at headingley was all of the above. before play, england were forced into a change with wicketkeeper sam billings replacing ben foakes, who tested positive for covid. when we got going, england impressed with both bat and ball in the afternoon. with 0llie pope on 81 and joe root 55, they closed on 183—2 in their second innings, chasing 296 for a series whitewash. patrick gearey was watching. sam billings had been busy — last night behind the wheel, this morning behind the stumps. he'd driven from canterbury to headingley to be a covid replacement. in front of him, new zealand's roadblock. tom blundell and daryl mitchell have spent three tests defying england.
7:33 pm
now they built a lead and slowly tucked in. england waited on crumbs. here was a morsel. still, mitchell wanted it checked. he was in line this time. relief, belief. now, jack leach saw an opening. this one bowled tim southee and bruised poor billings. the next ricochet was kinderfor him. neil wagner caught by billings, legs behind wicket. it's in here somewhere! there. leach would end up with five in the innings, ten in the match, and england would need 296 to win. when they chase, they chase hard. this england are a team in a hurry, but where is the line? alex lees was certainly short of it. run out. zak crawley went reaching for runs and eventually overstretched. england at that point still needed 245. no calls for caution. 0llie pope and joe root put on more than 100 together creatively. in a few overs,
7:34 pm
momentum had reversed completely. this england team say they are in the attainment business. —— entertainment business. whatever the stakes, whatever it takes, the show must go on. patrick gearey, bbc news. england women begin their summer tomorrow in a one—off test against south africa. it'll be the first time since 2003 the two have met in a red ball game, and captain heather knight feels the women have a big responsibility in the longest form. it honestly feels like every time we play a test match, we're fighting for the format a little bit. and it's quite hard not to think of that as a player, because, ultimately, you're trying to do the best with the situation in front of you, you're not trying to think too far ahead about the format, but i do think we are always judged on that. and there's a slightly more attritional section of players than there is in men's test cricket. i think we're judged slightly differently sometimes, and then the debate starts to go, "should women be playing test cricket?" so, yeah, we certainly feel that pressure. test match special has live online commentary of that match, which starts tomorrow at 11am. you can also watch in—play video clips via the bbc
7:35 pm
sport website and app. highlights will also be on tv later on. to the final day of action at the uk athletics championships, where daryll neita competed the sprint double. she shocked dina asher smith to win the 100 metres yesterday and added the 200 crown this afternoon. neita — who was part of the british team that won relay bronze at the rio and tokyo 0lympics — clocked 22.34 seconds to beat beth dobbin and imani lansiquot to the title. nethaniel mitchell blake set a championship record to win the men's 200. max burgin underlined his status as one of the rising stars of british athletics. the 20—year—old is the fastest man in the world over 800 metres this year and took nearly half a second off the stadium record to win by over a second. let's take you through some of the day's other sports stories. and liam rosenior has been appointed as derby county's interim manager after wayne rooney resigned this week. meanwhile, local businessman david clowes has had his bid to buy the club accepted.

few holes of the final round of the women's pga championship in maryland. in gee chun held a six—shot lead going into the weekend, but she's made four bogeys in herfront nine today to slip to four under par, two shots behind leader lexi thompson. the american — who's searching for her second major and first win in three years — is six under par. stephanie meadow is the best—placed brit, level par for the tournament. one more sleep until the all england club opens its gates for one of the most eagerly anticipated fortnights on the british sporting calendar. think strawberries and cream, henman hill and a load of people with seemingly no problem queueing. wimbledon is almost here. 0ur sports correspondent laura scott looks ahead. it's been a while, but wimbledon�*s back in full force, and so is the queue. awaiting them is an all—star cast. serena williams hasn't played singles since this agonising exit last year... ..but hasn't given up
7:38 pm
on another trophy at a0. 0pening centre court in its 100th year is defending champion novak djokovic. but rafael nadal is eyeing his third slam of the year after three years away. i enjoy it, unforgettable moments here, so i don't know how many wimbledons remain for me, no? so if i have the chance to be here this year, i want to enjoy that opportunity. for some, the championships will be as much about who isn't here. russian and belarusian players are banned over the war in ukraine, meaning no world number one daniil medvedev and no ranking points. it's still the right decision to make for the championships. we hugely regret the impact it has on the individual players involved, but it remains the right decision for us, this year. despite many time—honoured traditions, some things have changed. this is the first time players
7:39 pm
have been allowed to practise here on centre court before the championships get under way, including rafael nadal behind me. the idea is this will help bed in the courts and prevent slippages in the early rounds. there are winners... cheering game, set and match, murray. ..and wild cards among the brits. and last year's overnight sensation, emma raducanu. but the us open champion is tempering expectations after a recent injury. in a way, it might help because there's absolutely no pressure on me. like, i haven't had the ideal preparation, so of myself, i can't really expect too much and i canjust go out there and have a good swing. some have claimed the lack of ranking points means this championships will feel like an exhibition event. but others say it could never be, given the perennial prestige of this place. laura scott, bbc news, wimbledon. yeah, looking forward to that one. this weekend marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most controversial football matches of all time. west germany versus austria in the 1982 world cup saw players engineer the result of their group
7:40 pm
match saw both qualify at the expense of algeria. the resulting outrage led to fifa changing the rules to ensure both final group games would be played simultaneously. 0lly foster looks back on what become known as the "disgrace of gijon" with the referee in charge that day. the 1982 world cup was the biggest to date. 2a teams taking part — england, northern ireland and scotland were there. italy would become champions for a third time. who can forget marco tardelli's goal celebration in the final against the west germans? west germany also lost their opening game. algeria, the world cup debutants, were one of the early stories of that baking spanish summer. they then beat chile and had every chance of going through. theyjust needed the final game in their group the following day to go their way. the header by hrubesch. west germany are in front! germany and austria made sure it went their way. a 1—0 win to the germans saw both progress at algeria's expense.
7:41 pm
bob valentine was refereeing his first world cup match that day, helpless as the two sides�* intentions became clear. it's even worse than i remember it. they'd been playing normally before the goal, and i had no reason to think there was any reason they would not play the same after, but i quickly realised that they weren't going up the park just as quickly as they could. nobody was in any rush. the goalkeepers... when the ball went out, it took an age to get the ball on the spot. everything was slowed down. well, if this was a practice match, they'd have called it dull. it's a world cup tie, and they would call it a disgrace. the number of passes was getting exceptional. it almost appeared as if, as they got into the other half of the field, they lost interest in the ball. they've allowed their good name to be tarnished by taking part in a match as shabby as this has been. as i discovered it, so did the fans. and in the terracing, there began to be a lot of unrest, particularly from the algerian
7:42 pm
section — some of them waving cash, to suggest whatever they might have been suggesting, but that was what was going on. that's the final whistle. the anger on the faces of the crowd are because they have been cheated. and algeria may feel they've been cheated too. what were your emotions at the full—time whistle? i was sad for everything. i felt for algeria. i think most people did. it changed football, to be honest with you, because, now, the last games of any section must now be played at exactly the same time. i feel we have not heard the last of this game by a long way, as the crowd chant their disapproval at all 22 players. it's hard to believe that it's actually a world cup tie. there was nothing i could do about it. it was not a boxing match. i couldn't have called the two captains together and tell them,
7:43 pm
"you're going to have to get stuck into each other here." that option wasn't open to me, so all i could do is deal with whatever happened, which was very little. yeah, incredible story. that is all we have got time for on sportsday this evening. dojoin us at we have got time for on sportsday this evening. do join us at 6.30pm tomorrow evening on bbc news. we will be live at wimbledon on day one. right now, it is time for click, but from me and the rest of the team, goodbye. hello, and welcome to this big, green open space. never before have we appreciated outdoor spaces and parks like we have since lockdown.
7:44 pm
yeah, unfortunately, though, lockdown also saw an increase in something that's threatening to turn some of our green and pleasant lands into brown and unpleasant landfill, and that is the illegal dumping of rubbish. there've been well over a million fly—tipping incidents in the uk over the past year, and paul carter's been to see how ai is hoping to help us find the fly—tippers. like many countries, england's seen a surge in the illegal dumping of rubbish during the pandemic. some people pull up and dispose of their waste, while others, well, they literally do it on the fly. here on the outskirts of london, a number of councils have turned to tech to combat the issue. cameras, but not as you know them. these use al to catch fly—tippers.
7:45 pm
since february, over 80 smart cameras have been installed at known dumping hot spots across a number of councils, including kingston upon thames and sutton. they're just one of the initiatives of the south london partnership's inn0vate programme. it aims to harness the internet of things, or iot, to manage new challenges that have arisen during the pandemic and to pilot solutions to help people live better and healthier lives. so, i decided to put the cameras through their paces. unlike regular cctv, these cameras don't record continuously and are only triggered when they detect movement. that means it not only limits the amount of footage someone has to look at, it also reduces the carbon footprint of the solution. the footage is then transmitted wirelessly to a secure cloud—based platform and an alert sent out to the council's enforcement team. so, i'vejust dumped the rubbish
7:46 pm
that we've seen behind me and you've had that come through to your phone as an alert.
