Ben Stokes provides an ‘I was there’ innings to rescue England at Lord’s | Vic Marks

www.guardian.co.uk - Stokes’s instinctive 92 from 94 balls dragged his side back into the first Test against New Zealand after a dreadful start had left the home side 30 for four Mike Selvey’s day one report: England recover after New Zealand’s fiery start Relive the action of day one at Lord’s with our over-by-over report England’s rally posts reminder that sport is best enjoyed without bickeringIt was an “I was there” innings, not a monumental one but memorable. Ben Stokes, in the space of two hours, cheered everyone up. Whether Stokes’s 92 against New Zealand will linger quite as long as Ted Dexter’s 70 against West Indies in 1963, so vividly recalled by our correspondent the other day, is debatable. Yet Stokes, alongside dependable old Joe Root, 24 years old going on 34, fashioned a recovery every bit as startling as Lord Ted all those years ago, and at a similar rate.The bald facts: England were 30 for four when Stokes arrived at the crease; when he departed for 92 from 94 balls they were 191 for five, out of the woods, if not over the horizon.

Root and Stokes rescue England after blistering start from New Zealand

www.guardian.co.uk - England 354-7 v New Zealand Relive the action of day one at Lord’s with our over-by-over report England’s rally posts reminder that sport is best enjoyed without bickering Stokes provides an ‘I was there’ innings to rescue England at Lord’sCricket days like this are heaven-sent. Sunlit Lord’s, chattering crowd, shirtsleeve order in the pavilion, flags hanging lifeless on the poles, and in the middle a contest to savour to start the international summer. Mid-May pitches in St John’s Wood always carry a green tinge at the start, spring sappiness still. This was no exception and if it changed colour chameleon-like as the day wore on, then so did the nature of the cricket.At the end of an absorbing day the scoreboard tells of England, having been put into bat by Brendon McCullum, making 354 for seven and rattling along for the most part at four runs per over throughout. That, though, gives only the bare bones of the drama that unfolded. After 13 overs of the day there were 30 runs on the board and Adam Lyth, on his debut, Gary Ballance, Alastair Cook and Ian Bell back in the dressing room, victims to the trio of New Zealand pacemen.

Richard Hannon and Richard Hughes loosen ties for jockey’s last season

www.guardian.co.uk - Trainer stresses champion rider remains his stable No1 Rider happy with flexible arrangement in bid to keep titleThe names of Hannon and Hughes have been linked in triumph many a time at this lovely racecourse but Thursday’s card here provides the latest evidence of a very slight loosening of the ties between the two Richards in what is Hughes’s final year in the saddle. As the champion Flat jockey put it here yesterday, “We’re freeing each other up a bit”.Both men feel that a slightly more relaxed association will suit their immediate needs. Hughes hopes to be champion jockey for the fourth year in a row and will sometimes be allowed to take an outside ride against a Hannon runner if he prefers its chance, as in a fillies’ handicap here today, in which he will ride for Roger Charlton.
