And now for the sports, with Christian Sturgess and Oumar Mussa

Christian:

Englands cricket team are set to donate half of their match fees from Thursdays test match against India to the victims of terror attacks in Mumbai.

The team released a joint statement pledging £35,000 to the cause, after a meeting at the player’s hotel.

England and Wales cricket board officials are confident that the second test match in Mo-hali will go ahead. This will start on the 19th of December and was moved to Mo-hali instead of Mumbai, due to the recent events.

The team received a good response from the public when they arrived in India on Monday, many people believing their donation to be a sign of support and care for all those involved in the attacks.

Oumar:

Tottenham won a closely-fought London derby against West Ham to move them closer to the top ten of the Premiership.

Goals from Ledley King and Jamie O’Hara ensured that Harry Redknapp’s side emerged victorious at Upton Park.

Their victory means that they go level on points with West Ham in 14th but are ahead on goal difference.

Luis Felipe Scolari insists he can cope with the pressure as his Chelsea side prepare for a massive European tie against Romanian outfit CFR Cluj.

Anything less than a Blues win sees them knocked out of the Champions League stage for the first time in their history.

Scolari insists that there is more pressure managing the Brazil national side than coaching the West London outfit.

Rugby News Now,

The Welsh rugby winger Shane Williams is delighted to have been awarded the BBC Wales Sports personality of the year.

Williams beat the Olympic cycling gold medalist Nicola Cooke and undefeated world champion Joe Cal-zag-he.

The trophy brings another award to the table for Wales as they celebrate a very successful year in sports.

London Irish and Gloucester are making the premiership table nail bitingly close as both are now on 27 points.

Gloucester beat Cal-vi-sano 40 to 17 on Saturday and the London Irish managed to hold off Bristol long enough to obtain an 18 – 13 win.

Following closely behind the two teams with 26 points is Bath after a very close win of 35 – 31 against the Glasgow Warriors.

Oumar:

And finally, Carl Froch’s hopes of fighting Joe Calzaghe seems likely to fade after Calzaghe said he would ‘probably retire’ in the New Year.

The Welsh boxer admitted that he would consider whether or not he still has the desire to continue his career after spending time with his family over Christmas.

Froch, the new WBC super-middleweight title holder from Nottingham, had made it clear he is keen to fight Calzaghe and said he would be prepared to move up a weight class in order to do so.
