The 1990s-est Australia Test XI

Let’s pick a 1990s Australia XI. We’re not looking for the best team here; we’re just trying to pick an Australia Test team that couldn’t be more Nineties if it tried. We’re not as comfortable gauging Australian 1990s-ness as we are gauging English 1990s-ness, so a couple of weeks back we asked our Twitter followers who they thought were the Nineties-est Australia Test cricketers. What resulted was a bit of an informational tsunami, but fortunately people were largely in agreement. Once...

The 1990s-est England Test XI

Let’s pick a 1990s England XI. We’re not looking for a good team here; we’re not trying to pick a bad one either. We’re just trying to pick an England Test team that couldn’t be more Nineties if it tried. A 1990s England team is not really about the stalwarts for the simple reason that picking players repeatedly is very much not what the Nineties was about for England. The Nineties was about failing to ever establish a settled XI. So, as paradoxical as it is, we have to try and reflect ...

A Sim Series match report

Send your match reports to [email protected] If it’s a professional match, on no account mention the cricket itself. If it’s an amateur match, feel free to go into excruciating detail.

Other sports no. 3: Don King and the 45 minute answer

It was the week before the Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.I'd been at the first fight when Holyfield had pulled off a major upset by stopping Tyson in the eleventh round, even though beforehand there was a concern that Evander might actually die in the ring. He had been diagnosed with a heart condition that he now claimed had been cured by a faith healer.As a piece of sporting theatre it was the most exciting thing I'd seen. Afterwards both fighters cam...

With the Sri Lanka v England Test series postponed because of coronavirus, we’re playing out two Test matches between Sri Lanka and England on Cricket Captain 2018’s ‘All-Time Greats’ mode… This is Sim Series.

How Parsis shaped India’s taste for soft drinks

A bottle of Pallonji’s raspberry soda comes with this helpful disclaimer: “Contains no fruit.” Electric red in colour, and syrupy sweet to the taste, the raspberry soda is a beloved cultural icon of India’s fast-disappearing Parsi community – as well as the endangered Irani cafes in the western city of Mumbai. Article by Dinyar Patel | BBC It is pure, fizzy nostalgia. But peer more closely into one of Pallonji’s ancient glass bottles and you can discern a story of much greater significance: ho...

Podcast #594: How Churchill (and London) Survived the Blitz of 1940

A few months after Winston Churchill took office as prime minister, the German military began an eight month-long bombing campaign on the United Kingdom which became known as the Blitz. The bombing, which lasted for 57 consecutive days and nights, killed 45,000 Britons. What was life like for the people who experienced the Blitz? My guest today zoomed in on this question by looking at the lives of Winston Churchill and his inner circle during this precarious year of the war.  His name is Erik...

The Lucky Charms of 7 Famous Men

Superstitions — beliefs that are neither directly religious nor logically sound — have surely been around since time immemorial. Humans have always sought to get the edge on the seemingly supernatural forces that govern fate — to ward off bad woo-woo and attract good luck. And while the idea that some cause can influence some entirely unrelated consequence isn’t based on reason, it does have its own sort of rationality: some research shows that superstitions can significantly improve one’s perf...

Rain, redesigns and response times | Mop-up of the day

No amount of mopping-up would have been sufficient to ensure the T20 World Cup semi-final between England and India would have taken place. With no reserve day, India went through to the final because they came top in the group stage. Harmanpreet Kaur reckoned India had taken the rules into account from the outset. “We knew from day one when we were going to start this tournament that we would have to win all the games, because if we don’t get a match because of any condition, then whoev...

Thailand got a wicket with a loopy leg-side full-bunger

Via ICC video In the third over of Thailand’s match against South Africa, something truly magical happened. Ratanaporn Padunglerd bowled a really, really shit delivery and got a wicket with it. We love wickets off abject filth and this particular abject filth was pure.   In theory, Padunglerd bowls medium-pace, but the speed gun had this down at a Chris Harris-esque 90km/h (56mph). In terms of length, it would have landed on the wicketkeeper’s toes. In terms of line, th...
