John Langridge, the former Sussex batsman, has died at the age of 89 in Eastbourne. He hit a record 76 centuries for the county, scored 34,152 runs in his career between 1928 and 1955, nearly 5,000 more than Sussex's second-highest run-getter Ken Suttle.

Sussex have capped the former Northamptonshire opener, Richard Montgomerie, who moved to the south coast this season and has so far hit 632 County Championship runs at an average of 48.61 for his new employers.

The England women's team are to play three one-day internationals against India. The first is at Old Trafford next Tuesday, the second is at Northampton on Friday 9 July and the final match is at Trent Bridge on Sunday 11 July
