CRICKET: Hammond to the fore

First published in Sport

Oxfordshire's Miles Hammond shone with bat and ball as England Under 19s took charge of the first Test against South Africa on day two in Cape Town.

Unbeaten on 17 overnight, he went on to make 39 as England were bowled out for 313 in their first innings.

The 17-year-old off-spinner, from Oxford, then took 2-25 from his 11 overs to help dismiss the hosts for 194.

At the close, England were 24-0 in their second innings.
