LITESPORT London Lite Monday, 13 July 2009 39 BREAKING NEWS... BLOW FOR FREDBREAKING NEWS... Raykitstarts newseason IS ZOLA OFF TO ICELAND? PAGE 36 NATION HUNG, DRAWN AND TWITTERED BY THE TENSION beinabattle him take five wickets against Yorkshire at Headingley at Saturday. Cook said: Hes also just played Aus- tralia, and he bowled pretty well then. Hes a tall lad and a world-class bowler. Hes got lots of wickets this season at an economical rate, and hes bowling very well for us. KPs out again and its another bad shirt choice Instead, he chose to high-tail it down the M4 for a night out in London. Seen here leaving Boujis nightclub in South Kensington, it can only be assumed Pietersen was celebrating the get- out-of-jail performance put on by the England tail-enders to pluck a draw from the jaws of defeat unless of course he was hoping for a Royal pardon from Princes William and Harry, who are regulars at the club. Freddie or not: Flintoff puts pressure on his sore right knee, which needed surgery earlier this season. If Flintoff is unfit, Steve Harmison, inset, could feature in the second Test on Thursday at Lords situation and that one wicket determines a 1-0 or a nil all score line, he continued. They did their job they batted, we didnt make anything out of it. If Im in that situation, if I called for gloves they wouldnt care so its going to be good but its part of the game. Hauritz also revealed the tourists had targeted Englands lower order with their bowling in a bid to get away from appearing too friendly with the opposition. He explained: In the 2005 series I think Australia said they were too chummy with the English at certain times. I think its fantastic for the game to see its a battle out on the field. Do you tweet?

BY GEOFF TEATHER HOURS earlier he had been heading back to the pavilion in Cardiff after adding just eight runs to the England total. A second poor shot selection following on from the much-criticised sweep in the first innings had seen Kevin Pietersen unnecessarily throw away his wicket. A time for reflection, maybe, on what went wrong? But it seems the former England captain decided against a quiet night in watching a Monty Panesar video on how to bat against the Australians. FISHER HOLDING THE BABY: PAGE 37 Westwood snares Tiger at Turnberry LEE WESTWOOD will go head-to- head with Tiger Woods in the first two rounds of The Open at Turnberry on Thursday and Friday just as he did on the final day of the US Open last year. Westwood matched the world number ones score that day, both going round Torrey Pines in two over par 73s, but the big difference was that Woods started with a one- stroke lead. Woods had completed his second practice round for The Open by just after 10am today -- and described Turnberry as a lot more difficult than people are letting on. The world No 1 had never seen the Ayrshire links until yesterday, but he had not visited Hoylake before the 2006 Open either and won there by two from Chris DiMarco. Youve just got to do your homework, added Woods after a round that began around 6.30am. In his victory three years ago he only used his driver once. WEST HAMS new home kit for the 2009-10 season was officially unveiled today and actor Ray Winstone (above) was the first to try it out. The die-hard fan and Hollywood actor said: I actually really like it. It is the claret and blue and thats all I am worried about what else do you want? The new-look kit, including goalkeepers jersey (right), will be available from the clubs Lakeside and Stadium stores and online Megastore from 30 July but can be pre-ordered online at www.whufc.com.
