This year's charity appeal has raised more than £300,000 for our partner charity, Space for Giants, exceeding last year's total of around £250,000. We are within sight of breaking the record for a charity appeal by this newspaper – £356,000. So more donations would be appreciated.

'Guardian' cricket correspondent Mike Selvey has been dropped as a commentator from 'Test Match Special' after 24 years. The news came as a surprise to Selvey, a former England cricketer who only last winter was reassured he was a crucial part of TMS. "I am disappointed," he says. "Once upon a time TMS was part of a great tradition of BBC radio. But they are bringing in commentators with little knowledge of the game, especially of the cadences of Test match cricket." His departure will be a great disappointment to fans of Selvey's lugubrious manner. A BBC spokesman confirms the move, saying the aim is to "refresh the team", which is to include ex-England wicketkeeper Alec Stewart.
