Two US astronauts on Sunday stepped out on the third spacewalk to prepare the International Space Station for the arrival of more commercial spacecraft in the coming years. Space station commander Barry Wilmore and flight engineer Terry Virts began their six hour, 45 minute spacewalk at 6:52 am (1152 GMT). Tethered to the outside of the orbiting outpost, they made quick work of their first task, each installing a boom with two antennas for a communications system so that future crews launching from Florida on US commercial spacecraft will be able to park at the space station, NASA said.
England's hopes of reaching the quarter-finals were left hanging by a thread as Sri Lanka inflicted their third crushing defeat of the World Cup on Sunday, while Pakistan began a salvage operation with a tense 20-run win over Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka cruised to a seemingly stiff target of 310 for the loss of just one wicket with 16 balls to spare as Lahiru Thirimanne (139 not out), and Kumar Sangakkara (117 not out) shared an unbroken second-wicket partnership of 212 in Wellington. Yet Sangakkara insisted he still planned to retire from white-ball cricket after the World Cup as he was "getting old". "Everything I tried came off," he said after a win that left 1996 champions Sri Lanka, losing finalists at the last two World Cups, on course for the last eight.
