Powell and Pooran blast West Indies to 21-run victory over England in third T20
West Indies 224-5; England 204-5, WI won by 21 runsRovman Powell hits century off just 53 balls for hostsA match that offered fabulous entertainment, four marvellous individual innings, 31 sixes and several rewritten records ended with England posting the highest ever second-innings total at Kensington Oval but still losing by 20 runs to a West Indies side propelled to an unreachable total of 224-5 by Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran.Tom Banton’s excellent 39-ball 73 kept England approximately on track to chase down their target, but unlike Pooran a little earlier he did not find a teammate to join him at the crease and help shoulder the burden. Neither Jason Roy nor James Vince could make it out of the teens, Moeen Ali posted his second duck of the series, and Liam Livingstone, playing only after convincing coaches on Tuesday that he had fully recovered from oesophagitis, was clearly unfit, and needed a physio to bring him some medication before he had even faced a ball. By his fifth, he was out. Continue reading...

What’s plan B if the government can’t attract investors willing to fund Sizewell C? | Nils Pratley
Development money for nuclear power station is an attempt to draw in investors that could replace China’s CGNA sum of £100m is peanuts in the expensive world of nuclear power stations, so regard the business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng’s funding for a round of development work on Sizewell C as a form of advertising. The cash is intended to send a message that the government is serious about getting the plant built in Suffolk. And it is an appeal for outside investors to volunteer to sit alongside developer EDF, the French state-backed group.There was also a definition of a desirable investor: “British pension funds, insurers and other institutional investors from like-minded countries”. Note the nationality test. It is the closest we have come to official confirmation that China General Nuclear (CGN), originally slated for a 20% stake in Sizewell, will be kicked off the project. It remains to be seen how, legally, the government will rip up the 2015 deal with CGN signed by David Cameron’s government, but the intention is clear. Continue reading...
