Cricket: Tavare proves chip off old block

William Tavare marked his County Championship debut with an unbeaten 135 to take Gloucestershire to 292 for five on the first day of four against Hampshire at Bristol. Tavare is the nephew of former England batsman Chris Tavare, who in the early 1980s established himself as a notorious 'blocker'. But William Tavare has so far scored his runs at a reasonable rate, facing 272 balls with two sixes and 19 fours. He received good support from Australian opener Michael Klinger, who made 81.

Cricket: Buttler stars with the bat for England in Twenty20

A fine 67 from Jos Buttler propelled England to 152 for seven in their must win second Twenty20 game with hosts the West Indies at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, on Tuesday. The West Indies can win the three match series if they beat England having won the first game on Sunday. Buttler's highest T20 International score was the feature for England, but the tourists were unable to post a more intimidating target because of a fine piece of bowling by Krishmar Santokie, who took four wickets.
