Cricket – Dawson vows to take his opportunity

Liam Dawson is keen to impress when England take on South Africa in the first Test at Lord's. The Hampshire spinner has admitted that he was surprised to be included in the squad but is now determined to do well against the Proteas. Dawson said: "You've always got an opportunity. When you play it's a chance to do well and impress and that's what I'll be looking to try and do. "It was an unexpected call-up for me to be involved in this first Test match so I've just got to take things as they come." England are available at 10/11 with bet365 to win the first Test, which is scheduled to start on Thursday, while Dawson is 8/1 to be his team's top bowler in the first innings at Lord's.
