    DAILY MAIL

    Australia's teenage debutant Ashton Agar scored an extraordinary and historic 98 on another day of high drama at Trent Bridge. The 19-year-old rescued his side from 117 for 9 to 280 all out, shattering records in the process and putting England on the back foot after the second day of the first Test. Also: On a day of drama on stage 12, Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen, one of Tour leader Chris Froome's key wingmen, was injured in a bad crash and is out of the race, while Mark Cavendish suffered his second straight defeat in a bunch sprint stage.



    THE SUN

    Wayne Rooney was forced into a 22-hour, 11,922-mile round trip across the globe after being sent home from Manchester United's Far East tour. Also: England boss Roy Hodgson's worst World Cup nightmare came true yesterday... England were raging last night after two controversial decisions from the TV umpire in the first Ashes Test.



    DAILY MIRROR
    :
    England were offered a grovelling apology by international cricket chiefs after an umpiring cock-up. Also: Wayne Rooney has flown home from Manchester United's pre-season tour with a hamstring injury and will be out for a month. And in another hammer blow, new boss David Moyes is set to miss out on prime transfer target Thiago Alcantara, who will instead sign for Bayern Munich.

    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    After the hurly-burly of the first two days this Test was settling down into something approaching traditional Test cricket when Stuart Broad did that most Australian of things, he edged a catch and did not walk. Also: Arsene Wenger has revealed that he has already held positive contract talks with Arsenal and confirmed his long-term desire to stay at the club rather than move to Paris St Germain... Tottenham Hotspur are set to table an opening bid of 20 million for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke next week.



    DAILY EXPRESS:
    Stuart Broad soured the atmosphere of the Ashes by refusing to walk when he clearly edged a catch to slip at a vital stage of the first Test yesterday. Also: Open champion Ernie Els has criticised Muirfield's male-only membership policy ahead of his defence at the Scottish course next week.



    THE GUARDIAN:
    England plunged the bucket deep into the well of their spirit to extricate themselves from their perilous position after Ashton Agar's second-day mugging, to one where, by the close of the third day, they will have nursed more than a glimmer of being able to win this tight, utterly compelling match and would indeed be favourites. Also: Mohamed Al Fayed has brought his colourful 16-year association with Fulham to an end after sanctioning the sale of the Premier League club to the United States-based billionaire Shahid Khan.



    DAILY MIRROR:
    New Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is ready to launch a cut-price swoop for Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Also: Michael Holding is calling on the ICC, cricket's world governing body, to ban England's Stuart Broad for trampling over the spirit of cricket.



    DAILY MAIL:
    Arsene Wenger has pledged his long-term future to Arsenal after revealing he has started talks over a new contract. Also: West Indies legend Michael Holding has called for Stuart Broad to be banned for failing to walk at a crucial stage of the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge.



    DAILY STAR:
    Rugby pretty boy Gavin Henson was knocked out cold by a punch from one of his new team-mates. Also: Wayne Rooney still wants to quit Manchester United... Cometh the hour, cometh Ian Bell.



    THE INDEPENDENT:
    At this rate, the world supply of seat edges will shortly be under threat. From first ball to last on day three of the first Test of the Ashes twisted and turned excruciatingly on its enthralling path to a denouement which may be unbearable. Also: Any questions about Mark Cavendish's race condition evaporated today as he claimed the 25th Tour de France stage win of his career in spectacular style - but meanwhile, after race leader Chris Froome lost over a minute to his rivals, the clouds of doubt surrounding Sky's overall strength are beginning to mushroom.



    THE SUN:

    Jose Mourinho has increased his wooing of Wayne Rooney. Also: Arsene Wenger says Arsenal can mount a serious title bid for the first time in years - and extend his managerial reign in the process.



    THE TIMES:
    Ian Bell has always been known as a batsman with a pure sense of timing, and yesterday he chose a prime moment to make his most significant Ashes contribution in a home Test match. Also:The call crackled through the team radio just as Mark Cavendish and his team swung out of Nouans-les-Fontaines. It was the code word that had been clarified in the technical meeting on the team bus that morning.

    SUNDAY TELEGRAPH:
    England need to take four more Australian wickets today to clinch victory in the opening Test of an Ashes series for the first time in 16 years. Also: Manchester United are unlikely to offer Wayne Rooney a new contract this year with manager David Moyes wanting to see whether he can get "Wayne right back to where he was".



    MAIL ON SUNDAY:

    Manchester United are not planning to sit down with Wayne Rooney to discuss a new contract - waiting to assess the striker's form and fitness before discussing his future. Also: England are on the brink of taking a 1-0 lead in the Ashes after another controversy-filled day at Trent Bridge left australia needing another 137 runs to win with only four wickets in hand.




    THE OBSERVER:
    Today it will be decided whether the first Test of the 2013 Ashes series goes down in the annals as Agar's match. Also: In the raging sun, a blistering performance. James Dasaolu did not just smash the 10-second barrier for the 100m at the British hips in Birmingham; he scragged and garrotted it in a way that suggested he would quickly do so again, and with great pleasure.



    THE SUN SUNDAY:
    David Moyes has been told he can spend as much as he likes. Also: Stuart Broad shrugged off the walking controversy to fire England to the brink of victory at Trent Bridge.



    THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY:
    On another sweltering day in Nottingham the gladiators stood foursquare against each other. They traded blows once more as they had throughout the entire match, searching for an opening, refusing to yield. But by the close of the fourth day of the First Test, England appeared at last to have worn down Australia on the initial step of their quest to retain the Ashes. Also: It all looks so familiar: just like in 2012, a Team Sky leader has taken the yellow jersey on the first summit finish of the Tour and then swept his rivals from the board with a dramatic time-trial performance. From hereon, we thought, pressing the replay button in our memories, all Sky have to do is keep the race under control as they did so brilliantly last year for two long weeks to Paris and it's game over. But somewhere the film has jammed and the images of 2012 have started to blur.



    THE SUNDAY TIMES:
    Wayne Rooney may have to accept a further 12 months at Manchester United before his future is decided as David Moyes, the new manager, and Ed Woodward, the chief executive, do not plan to address his long-term status until next summer. Also: England need four wickets today to claim an early 1-0 lead in the Ashes series after Australia lost six for 80 on the fourth afternoon of the first Test match at Trent Bridge.



    SUNDAY PEOPLE:
    David Moyes is ready to put Wayne Rooney on probation for 12 months - after revealing Robin van Persie is Manchester United's number one striker. Also: Spin king Graeme Swann and part-time twirler Joe Root bowled England to the verge of an opening Ashes victory after a nerve-jangling day at Trent Bridge.




    SUNDAY MIRROR:
    England will be banking no Graeme Swann as they stand on the brink of taking a 1-0 lead in the Investec Ashes. Also: Papiss Cisse is being forced to train on his own after Newcastle got tough over his Wonga shirt sponsorship row at St James' Park.

    DAILY TELEGRAPH:

    THE SUN:
    Jose Mourinho will keep battling to sign Wayne Rooney - even though Manchester United told the Chelsea boss to forget it. Also: Alastair Cook wants his batsmen to stand their ground in today's second Test - even if they know they are out.



    DAILY STAR:

    Wayne Rooney is heading to Chelsea for 25million. Also: Chris Froome began to dream of Paris glory this weekend after winning a third stage yesterday.



    THE TIMES:

    Chelsea and Manchester United are set for a protracted wrangle over Wayne Rooney after Jose Mourinho confirmed last night that the England striker is his sole attacking transfer target. Also: Shane Warne, master spinner that he is, believes that Australia got more out of the first Test than England and that the force is with them.



    THE INDEPENDENT:

    Chelsea and Manchester United are at loggerheads over the future of Wayne Rooney, with the London club issuing a statement to confirm they had bid for the player - and to deny that they had offered either David Luiz or Juan Mata as part of the deal. Also: All is right with England's world. They are 1-0 up in the Ashes. Their opponents are suffused with controversy which they may rebuff but cannot entirely expel. Four years ago, the Lord's bogey against Australia which had lasted for three-quarters of a century embracing 18 Tests was finally laid to rest with a 115-run victory. Thus, England should be expected to prevail in the second Test which starts today.



    DAILY MAIL:

    Jose Mourinho declared Wayne Rooney his only major transfer target of the summer as a row erupted spectacularly between Manchester United and Chelsea. Also: Rory McIlroy hit back at Sir Nick Faldo on Wednesday after the six-time major champion told the Northern Irishman to "concentrate on golf".

    THE GUARDIAN:

    Jose Mourinho has stated that Wayne Rooney is Chelsea's only remaining summer transfer target, with the club having no contingency plans should Manchester United resist selling the striker. Also: Alastair Cook has backed Stuart Broad to relish his new role as the pantomime villain for the next nine Ashes Tests, at least in Australian eyes, and suggested that he was following team policy by standing his ground rather than walking when reprieved by Aleem Dar during the first Test at Trent Bridge.



    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    England captain Alastair Cook has given Stuart Broad his unconditional support after conceding that the bowler's behaviour during the first Test had made him a "hate figure" for Australians. Also: Chris Froome continues to dominate this historic edition of the Tour de France. Not the dodgy weather, not a careful descent, not a dodgy bike change and not even Alberto Contador rampaging round an undulating time-trial course as of old could prevent him winning a third stage here in the heart of the Alps to increase his dominant overall lead.



    DAILY EXPRESS:
    Jose Mourinho yesterday declared it was "Wayne Rooney or bust" after Chelsea's 20million offer for the England striker was rejected by Manchester United. Also: Rory McIlroy has hit out at Muirfield's ban on women members ahead of today's Open Championship.

    THE GUARDIAN:
    Can there be a better feeling in the world for an England batsman than to make a century at Lord's against Australia in front of a packed house basking in summer sun? Midway through the final session of the first day Ian Bell angled Shane Watson just backward of square on the offside and trotted through for the runs that took him to the 19th Test hundred of his career.



    THE INDEPENDENT:
    It was supposed to be the day Rory McIlroy re-announced himself as one of the greatest - and freest - of golf talents but the more he played, the more he sank into a horror that he could not snap, the clearer it was he needed help.



    THE TIMES:

    Rory McIlroy said that he was "brain-dead" at times during an opening round of 79 at Muirfield yesterday that left his Open Championship hopes in tatters. Also: Her Majesty had seen enough. The Royal Standard was lowered, the fawning members of the MCC committee shuffled the deckchairs and allowed the Queen room to move and she departed the scene. At 28 for three she cannot have been impressed, although as head of state for both countries, she was on to a good thing whichever side were on top. A bob each way, she might have thought, as someone who likes a flutter.



    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    Rory McIlroy did not know what he had been thinking; some of the players did not know what the R&A had been thinking. On a torrid opening day of the 142nd Open Championship the bemusement of the young world No.2 seemed awfully apt.



    DAILY EXPRESS:
    Rory McIlroy is set to call in a sports psychologist to sort out his "brain dead" head after shooting a disastrous opening 79 at the Open. Also: Rafa Benitez is ready to take advantage of the uncertainty over the future of Pepe Reina at Liverpool by making a bid to take him to Napoli.



    DAILY MAIL:
    Rory McIlroy's troubled season sank to a new low yesterday as he plummeted to a horrific 79 in the first round of The Open and admitted he needed psychological help. Also: Three late wickets for Australian leg-spinner Steve Smith spoiled England's day after Ian Bell hit another sublime century in the second Ashes Test at Lord's.



    DAILY MIRROR:
    Rory McIlroy admitted playing "brain-dead" golf as his Open challenge turned into a nightmare. Also: Ian Bell was frustrated after his team-mates failed to capitalise on his brilliant century.



    DAILY STAR:
    Gareth Bale has told pals he fancies a move to Manchester United. Also: Furious Ian Poulter last night claimed The Open has been reduced to a game of crazy golf.



    THE SUN:
    Manchester United will refuse to sell Wayne Rooney - even if he hands in a transfer request. Also: Arsene Wenger last night finally agreed to make a 40million offer for Luis Suarez - only to be told Liverpool now want 55m.

    THE SUN:
    Arsenal are facing a double whammy from Real Madrid. Also: Manchester United's chances of landing Cesc Fabregas dramatically increased last night.


    Cesc Fabregas: Still being linked with Old Trafford switch

    DAILY MAIL:
    Australia coach Darren Lehmann slammed his side after they were skittled for a pathetic 128 in the second Test at Lord's and England took a firm grip on the Ashes. Also: Lee Westwood is convinced he can make his contribution to the great British sporting summer of success - thanks to an invaluable tip from an Australian



    DAILY MIRROR:
    Lee Westwood insists he is ready to finally end his Major drought after turning up the heat at scorching Muirfield. Also: Graeme Swann fulfilled a childhood dream at Lord's by getting his name on the honours board in an Ashes Test.



    THE DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    Sir Ian Botham's reputation as a tipster lags well behind those he acquired with bat and ball, but his prediction of 10-0 double whitewash by England no longer looks like the ravings of a misguided patriot after another abject batting performance by Australia. Also: Lee Westwood earned himself a Saturday shootout with Tiger Woods as the big names rode into contention at the 142nd Open Championship.



    THE TIMES:
    Graeme Swann refused to gloat over Australia's woeful batting or the luckiest wicket of his career as he moved into the top ten England wicket-takers of all time, and helped his side into another dominant position in the second Ashes Test at Lord's. Also: For many years now, Lee Westwood has talked a good game when it has come to assessing his chances in the major hips.



    THE GUARDIAN:
    Rory McIlroy has been left clinging to the hope that a busy run of tournaments will turn around his fortunes, after comprehensively missing the cut at the Open Championship. Also: Darren Lehmann has laid the blame squarely with Chris "Buck" Rogers for Australia's continuing problems in coming to terms with the technology that has become so important in the 21st century.



    THE INDEPENDENT:

    Curiouser and curiouser. Australia's batsmen disappeared down the rabbit hole into a pool of tears, and Alastair Cook is in Wonderland. This is Ashes cricket scripted by Lewis Carroll rather than Neville Cardus. Also: Chris Froome is now just one obstacle away from claiming his first Tour de France title in Paris: one short, and particularly vicious Alpine stage today.

    THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY:
    Cricket Australia have opened an investigation into how an obscene message regarding an umpiring decision in the Second Test made its way on to their official Twitter feed.

This year it's the boy-next-door, Chris Froome.
