Adil Rashid is almost as good a batsman as Stuart Broad

Stuart Broad is the greatest batsman in the history of cricket. Everybody knows that. What people don’t know is that Adil Rashid is almost as good. One of the great tragedies of England having loads of bowlers who can bat is that fans very rarely get to catch a glimpse of Adil Rashid attempting to square-drive yorkers off middle stump. Rashid is a batsman who always plays the percentages. He doesn’t play them like other people though. The way Adil Rashid plays the percentages is he works...

I had a new suit (dark grey, secret pockets) that I was shyly proud of; but with a couple of hours to go, I hung it in the wrong place in a public bathroom and the jacket was sprayed at close range by an auto-dispersing air freshener, the rich and tangy scent of which I could never sc...

Red and Red For Men were my most recent purchases. I have always seen them here on Fragrantica an...
