Bad boy bowls back for India ECCENTRIC fast bowler Shantha Sreesanth was named in Indias 15-man squad for the first two Tests against Sri Lanka beginning next week. The 26-year-olds last Test was in April 2008 before injury forced him out of the national team.

Williamson will referee the final THE row over the appointment of the referee for Saturdays Gillette Four Nations final between England and Australia was settled today with the appointment of New Zealander Leon Williamson. The selection of the 40-year-old Kiwi is effectively a compromise after the finalists failed to secure their first-choice officials. Warringtons Phil Bentham will be the video referee and Frenchman Thierry Alibert is the reserve ref. Denver seize their Chauncey CHAUNCEY BILLUPS hit the game-winning free throw with six-tenths of a second left as the Denver Nuggets beat the Chicago Bulls 90-89. Billups put Denver ahead with his first shot from the charity stripe, but then missed the second, giving Chicago one more shot. Brad Miller hit a shot from the top of the key, but as the crowd went wild, officials called for a TV replay before determining Miller shot after the final buzzer. Bowing to the inevitable: captain Paul Collingwood can hardly bear to watch as England slide to defeat against South Africa A last night Sorry, this is NOT a new England, we were wrong BY NEAL COLLINS Vaughaning bells from ex skipper FORMER captain Michael Vaughan has warned England that they have no hope of becoming the worlds best side without a dramatic overhaul of their playing schedule. His comments come after last nights collapse against South Africa A, despite a bright start to the tour. England take on No1 ranked Test side South Africa in a four-match series next month following seven one- day games, which get under way in Johannesburg on Friday. Vaughan said: England wont consistently be the No1 team in the world with the way the system is right now. Ive been saying for some time that there are too many games on the county schedule. LITESPORT would like to apolo- gise to any readers of yesterdays cricket story on page 35 headlined: SwannwarnsSAthisisNOTsame old England side. This newspaper was taken in by twoearlywinsonthetourof South Africa which encouraged us to accept Graeme Swanns argument whichranalongthelinesof:What weve been trying for the last five years hasnt really worked and weve done something about it. Last nights humiliating Twenty20 defeat against South Africa A in Bloemfontein suggests thisEnglandteamARE,infact,just as bad as all the other touring teams we send around the world for a good hammering at the hands of our former colonies. For that we apologise unreservedly. England,withoutcaptainAndrew Strauss who avoids the shortest form of the game, were skittled for 89inaninningsthatfeaturedthree comical run-outs. The second- string South Africans got there with four wickets to spare. With the first Twenty20 interna- tional looming at the much more intimidating Wand erers Bull Ring in Johannesburg, stand-in captain PaulCollingwoodsaid:Imhoping this was just a blip. Weve started so well, its a really great atmos- phere. I guess its just our decision- making in this form of the game that tonight has let us down. Englands injury list is worrying too. Swann left the field with a slightthighproblem,joiningJames Anderson (knee), Graham Onions (back) and Stuart Broad (shoulder) in the casualty department. NEAL COLLINS will be touring with England next month to watch them take on South Africa in the Test series. See www.nealcollins.co.uk for details and his daily blog.
