How good a six was the sliced six in Moeen Ali’s 11-ball 39 against South Africa?

Moeen Ali sliced six (via YouTube) Moeen Ali hit four sixes in England’s last ball victory over South Africa in Durban. Because he’s Moeen Ali and hasn’t even heard of ugly batting, each and every one of them was a languid, spaghetti-armed thing of wonder. In all, Moeen hit seven lovely boundaries in his 11-ball innings. Being as the last of those 11 deliveries resulted in his dismissal, this means that Moeen hit 70 per cent of his non-terminal shots for a lovely boundary, whic...

Why I’m totally OK with being alone this Valentine’s Day (Seriously!)

Have you seen the 1998 movie Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett? It ends with Queen Elizabeth I realizing that all men are either gay or liars, then breaking up with her boyfriend and declaring herself a virgin. She ends up with full ownership over her body and, like, England. I’ll circle back to that. First, let’s revisit a time when I was also a virgin. It’s Valentine’s Day, 2004. I haven’t yet lost my virginity in the bathroom of a roller-skating rink. I haven’t yet broken up with my first b...

How not to invite someone over for a hookup via Grindr

As we approach Valentine’s Day, now seems as good a time as any to remind everyone to be kind and respectful to others online. A Twitter user has prompted many comments after sharing a Grindr message he received. The man messaging him was inviting him over for sex. However, it was how the invitation was worded that has prompted raised eyebrows. Danny Whitehead (@danielswhi) is based in Scunthorpe in England. On Sunday, the 35-year-old was hanging out with a friend in a hotel. They both received...

Farmer’s diary from 1810 shows he was more woke about homosexuality than many Americans today

A page of Tomlinson’s diary. Credit: The University of Oxford An English farmer who lived 200 years ago was more woke about homosexuality than many people today, according to an entry from his newly unearthed diary. Matthew Tomlinson was a farmer in West Yorkshire in Northern England. In January 1810, he heard about a naval surgeon who had been executed for sodomy and took to his journal to express why he thought criminalizing homosexuality was wrong. In England and Wales, homosexuality was p...

England have got a plan for Jonny Bairstow: keep him guessing

Jonny Bairstow (via Sky Sports) As a parent, we’re a great believer in setting unclear boundaries. Keeps ’em guessing, doesn’t it? You don’t want to make things too easy for them. The way you do this is that you ensure you’re as inconsistent as possible. Let your children do something some of the time, but then every now and again give them an absolute bollocking for doing the exact same thing. It seems harsh, but it’s a great lesson in psychology and how the world works. Ot...

Shan Masood's Second Innings

20 Test Matches, 38 innings, 1189 runs, average of 31.28, three hundreds, six fifties.This is Shan Masood's Test Career, which began 6 years and a few months ago. 6 years and only 20 test matches? Exactly!These numbers don't provide a true picture of Shan Masood the test cricketer.Having scored 75 on his debut, in October 2013, one would have expected to see Shan as a regular test opener for Pakistan, but after two tests in that series, he did not play for another year, till his return in Octobe...

Eoin Morgan wants to catapult England forward – but is that wise?

Eoin Morgan (via YouTube) In some ways it was hard to know what year it was. Playing their first one-day international since winning the World Cup, England made 258-8 and were then conspicuously short of weirdness in the middle overs with the ball. The difference is that this was day one of a project to build a new side for the next World Cup, rather than a limp performance in the group stages of the same competition. You’d trust Eoin Morgan to work out what is and isn’t going...

Best 3 Cities To Visit In Europe When Traveling With Kids

We all know that taking a road trip with children brings its own kind of fun and challenges, but there’s another type of trip that every parent needs a bit of time to plan: the Euro trip. There are obviously hundreds of fantastic cities to visit when you’re young and traveling solo, but when you are traveling with kids, you’ve got to think differently and focus less on bars and clubs and more on attractions and restaurants! Luckily, Europe is the perfect vacation destination and is...

Five lost England Test cricketers of the 2010s

Haseeb Hameed (via YouTube) In another universe, these five cricketers are the backbone of the England Test team. A handful of players make it in Test cricket. Others get picked and aren’t good enough. Then there are the weird ones; the ones who get a few games, look the business and then for some weird reason or another disappear again when you were absolutely convinced that they’d become fixtures in the side. Here are five players who seemed for all the world like they we...

Madonna: “Size matters, don’t pretend that it doesn’t!”

The 61-year-old has been plagued with health problems during the tour, leading to ten dates being cancelled. This included...

The silk shirt Charles I of England wore to have his head chopped off

The Museum of London will soon publicly display Charles I's execution vest for the first time. The doomed king wore the silk garment to the chopping block after his defeat in the English Civil War of the 17th century; 30 January is the 371st anniversary of his death at the Banqueting House on Whitehall. The stains are said to be vomit, not blood.

The Jos Buttler formula and the Ben Stokes toolkit – how ‘trust your defence’ and ‘play your natural game’ aren’t competing philosophies

Jos Buttler is a Test batsman who talks as if he needs to approach his innings in a certain way. Maybe taking a philosophy into the middle is counterproductive. What’s your natural game? Our natural game is a lot of tea, coffee and reading, a small amount of writing, maybe a bike ride and probably three beers late on watching something like Roadhouse, the film that taught Michael Vaughan so much. As you’d imagine, we play our natural game basically never, which is fine, bec...

He fled Iran after being raped and tortured, now the government wants to deport him

A gay Iranian man in U.K. who says he was raped in Iran “for being Christian” is now facing deportation for the second time. The 38-year-old man, identified only as “Madhi” in the press, escaped Iran following his attack in 2016. He landed first in Germany, where he was forced to eat garbage and faced persecution by street gangs before moving to the UK last year. There, he managed to start a life. Unfortunately, because Madhi entered the U.K. illegally, immigration officials have been trying to...

As pricing is released for the brand new Hundred Competition, we take a look at the structure, participants and schedule of the competition. Following the euphoria of England’s incredible World Cup victory last July, many fans of English cricket have been asking whether the new Hundred-ball competition will ‘cash in’ on securing new audiences that have gained an interest in the game, or do the opposite and become a significant deterrent due to the potential confusing nature of the game. What fa...

Joe Denly could become England’s Baron of Balls

Joe Denly is not doing the job. But Joe Denly is doing a job. Denly made a ball hundred in the third Test. The ball hundred is a term we coined for use in situations where you’re batting for a draw and ‘deliveries faced’ entirely supersedes ‘runs scored’ as a performance metric. A ball hundred is when you face a hundred balls. Joe Denly faced 100 balls in Port Elizabeth and made 25 runs. 25 runs is not enough runs but 100 balls is enough balls. Some people think Jonny ...

WATCH: Politician called to resign over bizarre antigay rant

In the annals of debunked homophobic talking points, there’s really nothing more prolific or versatile than “Think of the children!” Its latest incarnation comes courtesy of a local British politician whose rant about children being shown gay “pornography” in school has earned him several calls to resign. Glenn Williams is a Coventry city councilor who argued that children should be taught “traditional family values” and “not how to be promiscuous”, aka gay. AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBri...

Mark Wood is playing The Entertain Yourselves Test

You’ll have noticed that the site’s been a bit quiet this week and we’re afraid it’ll continue to be quiet throughout this Test. Sorry about that, but we’re figuratively tied up at the minute. Can you talk amongst yourselves until we’re back? Preview-wise, this Test will be another without Jimmy Anderson. We wrote about that once and we still feel exactly the same. Jimmy’s absence is becoming a more common thing and we can only presume that he’s deliberately trying to sof...

Priests broke confession confidentiality to out gay soldiers to military

(Photo posed by models, via Unsplash/Public Domain) A British politician has apologized after it emerged some chaplains with the British armed force told superiors about gay and bisexual military personnel in the 1990s. The UK dropped its ban on openly LGB people serving in the armed forces in 2000. However, before this time, gay military personnel were routinely dismissed if their sexuality became known. According to the Times, some chaplains reported LGB personnel to their superiors after h...

England are nicking all your best ideas and parroting them back to you

Many people – women in particular – will be familiar with that guy at work who ignores your great idea before repeating it back to you some weeks later as if it’s his own. There’s a bit of that about the England cricket team. How many years has everyone been saying that the batsmen need to leave better and see the shine off the ball? England disagreed. They wanted to be positive. Then in New Zealand late last year they announced they’d come up with this mad new plan where they’d...

Why ‘overnight’ is such an important part of a five-day Test match

Whenever a Test is decided late on the fifth day, there’s much talk about how that kind of tension and excitement wouldn’t happen with four-day Tests. It’s half true. This is why. If you move a deadline, you don’t negate it. Even if a Test match has no fifth day, there’s still a final day. A four-day Test rules out tense fifth day finishes, but it also creates more opportunities for teams to fight for a draw where they would otherwise have been steamrollered given more playin...

Rory Burns and Dom Sibley could be one of the all-time great aesthetically displeasing opening partnerships

Dom Sibley (via Sky Sports) We have this theory that the more ungainly and awkward a new Test batsman looks, the more likely he is to succeed. Our reasoning is that if you’ve made it to the highest level looking as awful as that, you can only be a highly effective run-scorer. Some batsmen are given a bit of extra credit. Unfurl a smooth cover drive and you can guarantee that someone, somewhere will say that you have “a touch of class” about you. “Class” is for the most part...

Rare artifact from queer history pops up after nearly 150 years… on Google

Researchers were stunned to recover a rare, original copy of an 1873 essay promoting the morality of same-sex relations. Titled “A Problem in Greek Ethics,” the essay was written by the English poet and cultural historian John Addington Symonds, who only published ten copies for fear of the work getting into the wrong hands. Homosexuality was very much a crime in 19th century England, and the essay, which praised the ancient Greeks’ acceptance of same-sex relations, could have landed Symonds in...

Joe Denly is here to play a whole inconclusive career

Joe Denly was a weird selection, but since he was first picked, he’s done enough to stay in the team. Just about. Denly’s given us spectacular catches and spectacular drops, but the defining feature of his Test career is an incredible ability to score barely enough runs to survive. We’re actually rather starting to enjoy it. In the 2019 Boxing Day Test, Denly top scored in England’s first innings, making 50 after being dropped on nought. For a while, we thought this ...

Xmas leftovers Part II: Ben Foakes at Guildford

These few paras were taken out of a forthcoming piece as they didn't really fit. I thought Foakes, along with Smith and Labuschagne, was the best player I saw live last Summer. The gods of cricket have decreed that Dom Bess is with England in South Africa, and good luck to him.  In July I went to Guildford, to Woodbridge Road to watch Surrey play Yorkshire. It was supposed to rain all day, but when we arrived just after lunch Surrey had a hundred on the board for a couple down and under low sk...
