Lord's famous Father Time weather vane damaged by high winds

Strong winds have damaged the famous Father Time weather vane at Lord's.

Weekend gales in St John's Wood knocked the steel figure parallel to the ground.

It is hoped that Father Time, known to millions in the cricket world and beyond, will be helped to recover his equilibrium back in his age-old stance in time for start of play on April 12 - when Middlesex begin their LV= County Championship season at home to Nottinghamshire on April 12.

John Terry 'delighted' to sign new contract at Chelsea

John Terry has signed a new contract at Chelsea, extending his stay until the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

I'm delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea.

After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club.

Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And as always I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.

This new contract is not to say “thank you very much”; it is because John continues to perform. He is a top defender. I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.

Kevin Pietersen signs contract to return to Surrey

Kevin Pietersen has signed a contract to return to Surrey this summer. The move gives the record-breaking batsman the opportunity to press for an England recall, after being sacked in February 2014 following the Ashes whitewash defeat in Australia.

Pietersen cleared the way for a return to The Oval by agreeing a release from the majority of his Indian Premier League contract with Sunrisers Hyderabad - which clashed with the start of the English domestic season - and he will be available for Surrey's first LV= County Championship match against Glamorgan in Cardiff on April 19.
