Eddie Hemmings, the former England off-spinner, has been appointed Nottinghamshire's bowling coach.

Pakistan beat India by 52 runs in the fifth and final one-day international in Toronto on Monday to win the Sahara Cup series 3-2. Pakistan scored 213 for 9 in 50 overs and then bowled India out for 161 in 45.5 overs.

The West Indies captain, Courtney Walsh, has agreed a new two-year contract with Gloucestershire. The deal is now subject to Walsh's obligations to his country's board of control, who want the 33-year-old strike bowler to stay in the Caribbean after this winter to help develop their domestic game.

Hampshire have signed Matthew Hayden, the Australian opening batsman, as their overseas player for next season. The 25-year-old Queensland vice- captain, who has signed a one-year deal, has scored over 7,000 runs in his first class career at an average of 57, which is better than anyone currently playing first-class cricket in Australia.

Ben Hollioake, the Surrey all-rounder brother of England A captain Adam, has been named in the England Under-19 party to tour Pakistan this winter. Hollioake, 18, who made his first-class debut for Surrey this summer is one of two Surrey players in the squad, the other being the fast bowler Alex Tudor, who missed most of this season with a side injury. The Warwickshire coach, Phil Neale, is the tour manager while the Lancashire all-rounder, Andrew Flintoff, will captain the side, which leaves in late November.
