Duanne Olivier says he wants to play for England now

Duanne Olivier (via Sky Sports) Test batting average of 3.71. Highest score of 10 not out. We can’t imagine Duanne Olivier will be far off selection as a top order batsmen when he finally becomes available. We lamented the loss of a promising international cricketer when Olivier announced he was taking up a Kolpak deal with Yorkshire last month. We had no idea that we were completely wrong and that he might one day return to international cricket in slightly different clothes. ...

England Bowling Attack the Key to Ashes Success

"James Anderson" by Tim Felce (CC BY-SA 2.0) During the whole of last summer, and more than likely the whole of this summer, questions will be asked about the England batting line up, particularly the top order. England were already struggling to find a new opener before Alastair Cook retired and, without him, that has become an even tougher task. However, despite their issues at the top of the order, it will be the bowlers that decide where the Ashes go this summer. Will England...

A Beginner’s Guide to the Underappreciated Pencil

Editor’s note: This is a guest article from TJ Cosgrove. For most people, the humble pencil is a writing utensil that was once familiar, but is now largely absent from their everyday life. When you were a kid, you used a #2 pencil to fill out the answer sheet bubbles on standardized tests. Maybe you kept using the mechanical kind to do math in college. But as an adult, unless you’re a craftsman making marks on lumber or drywall, you may not use pencils at all, having dropped them in favor ...

Looks like you’ll be able to watch the Afghanistan v Ireland Test on YouTube

This is a slight gamble, but we’re led to believe the Afghanistan v Ireland Test will be broadcast via the feed above from 4am tomorrow (Friday). We’ll just have to see how that pans out. Match preview Our favourite part of the previews for this match are the form guides. They look like this: Afghanistan L Ireland L At least one of the two sides will improve on their stunted Test record in the coming days (and possibly both of them if it’s a draw). Gi...

Root and Wood Could Cover Up England Weaknesses

Jason RoyJoe RootEngland seal record ODI chase — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) February 20, 2019 England have been on an imperious march to the World Cup since their failure in the competition four years ago in Australia and New Zealand. The Three Lions were humiliated, failing to reach the knockout stage of the tournament. Eoin Morgan’s men played a brand of tepid cricket that put them well behind their rivals at the top of the sport. Their...

Brits, Berlin, and Brexit: How British Citizens Can Stay in Berlin

Brexit checklist: a valid passport, Anmeldung, a print-out of your online registration form for the Ausländerbehörde, a paying job, German health insurance, a German bank account, a German driving license, and a year’s supply of decent cider. The 29th of March is nearly upon us, and after more than two years of “robust” negotiations, it’s looking more and more like we’re headed for a no-deal Brexit. So what does that mean for those of us from the UK who have decided to make Berlin our home? As w...

Rejoice! Cricket 19 is coming out on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch and player likenesses are still slightly funny

A year or so ago, we wrote about the Ashes Cricket videogame and the disappointingly good player likenesses seen in the screenshots. This then inspired us to do a nostalgic piece about cricket computer game graphics through the ages. As we said in that second piece, it’s pretty clear that the golden age of cricket videogame graphics is behind us. We’ve got some good news though. The graphics for Cricket 19, which comes out this summer, are just about wonky enough to still be...

Did you see… Jos Buttler’s wrists?

Jos Buttler (via Sky Sports) Many things happened during the fourth one-day international between West Indies and England, and 46 of them were sixes. Quite a few (12) were hit by Jos Buttler and a small proportion were delivered via a mad wrist snap. The mad wrist snap is what we’re writing about today. For some in cricket – most of whom are commentators and several of whom are perhaps mildly racist – ‘wristiness’ is a quality that is unique to Asian batsmen. This is odd be...

Olivia Colman's Fake Gout Was So Good, It Won An Oscar

There's no doubt that we are obsessed with British royalty, both in the flesh and in film. It's hard to even count exactly how many times we've watched the stories of Queen Elizabeth II, King Henry, or Queen Victoria play out on screen. But out of all the biopics and miniseries, there's one queen that is often left out: Queen Anne.Luckily, her reign is being brought to the big screen in The Favourite with all the royal drama we expect. Starring Olivia Colman as Queen Anne, Rachel Weisz as Sarah...

Someone has hidden or misplaced the Sri Lanka Test team that subsides to predictable defeats. If anyone tracks it down, they should probably alert the authorities. Its parents will no doubt be very worried

Oshada Fernando just absolutely smears one to the boundary (via Sky Sports) Someone who we know really quite well has an annoying habit of choosing a film to watch before wandering off to bed after about 40 minutes of it. “I’ve got the gist,” she says – even though she obviously hasn’t. We’re then left to watch to the end on our own when we never wanted to watch the damn thing in the first place. It’s not the blithe assumption that she knows what’s going to happen that gra...

Chris Gayle is not a very efficient batsman any more

Chris Gayle (via Sky Sports) Chris Gayle has always played catch-up. A batsman with a capacity to score quicker than most, he has often taken the time to play himself in before engaging his core to spectator-peppering effect. But just as his personality often seems to have descended into self-parody these days, so has his batting. The slow start has become slower and the catching up even more necessarily urgent. People say that this is okay so long as he does catch up. But d...

History of The Necktie And How To Wear Them

Have you ever asked why you had to wear a necktie to go with your business wear? Did you ever wonder how this style evolved to what it is today? You could be thinking how this piece of cloth whose value is purely ornamental, as it does not offer any protection from the elements and surely not going to offer any comfort, has become the norm. It is undeniable that men around the world would wear neckties to improve their look. From the first ever necktie, to the custom ties ordered from th...

The Better Your Product, the Better Your Life

--> One day, when I was growing up, I had a pain in my foot and my stepmother took me to see a podiatrist. I had never heard of a podiatrist and I have never been to one since, but I remember hearing the most unusual story at the time about a girl who became a podiatrist. Several years ago, some friends of one of my parents’ had a daughter who completed a few years of college and was pretty out of control. She had gotten horrible grades, had gotten into all sorts of trouble, and seemed to be hea...

Annie and Gary and Me

If you like cricket and you're on Twitter, and you follow everybody that everyone else follows, you will probably have heard of Annie Chave. These days, it seems, most people have. Among other things, Annie commentates on Guerilla Cricket, and she recently had the privilege of being flown to Barbados to broadcast on the First Test between the West Indies (they will never ever be called the 'Windies' around here) and England. The only thing stopping it being the trip of a lifetime is the fact ...

Third Test Notes: No-one born slow gets fast

Pace bowling remains one of the game's great unknowables. There is mystery inherent within it, and very few men on earth can do what Mark Wood did in St Lucia last week. As the old sprinters' proverb goes: 'no-one born slow ever got fast'.It was interesting to hear Wood describe it as "feeling like a superhero." When I worked with Simon Jones on his book The Test, he made the same analogy: "It's like having a superpower, it's a surge, an urge. It's a feeling like no other, to know that the oppos...

Kusal Perera does not care for circumstances

Kusal Perera (via Sky Sports) We nearly did a “Dale Steyn’s back” piece. Steyn’s actually been back for a while (he’s been back repeatedly, in fact) but this was the match when we saw fit to extract him from the fast-medium drawer and plonk him back into the fast bowler drawer. This was when he was back back. Steyn took four wickets in Sri Lanka’s first innings and he did it in the time-honoured Steyn way. (These are the ingredients of a Dale Steyn.) Steyn is a bowler who w...

Filmmaker Emma Holly Jones On Mr. Malcolm's List, Jane Austen & Tinder In 19th Century London

If you ask her, Emma Holly Jones was practically born to make Mr. Malcolm's List. "I grew up in love with Jane Austen," the 30-year-old filmmaker says. "I'm named after Emma, I've always had that book on my bedside table, and I've watched every period drama that's ever been made."Jones never thought she would have a chance to create a new period piece — an Austen remake, sure, but something truly original seemed too rare a find. Enter Suzanne Allain's Mr. Malcolm's List, and the screenplay's ri...

Do Your Job Search on Heavy Ground

--> For the past several years I have been interacting with people who are looking for jobs on a daily basis. I have also been working with recruiters, who find people jobs. After many years of working with various people, it often occurs to me that those who get the best jobs do their job search in an unconventional way: The best thing is to avoid doing what everyone else is doing when it comes to looking for a job. By far, the most effective strategy for getting a job is to look where other pe...

Jason Holder is not Bill Lumbergh

Jason Holder (via Windies Cricket YouTube) When we named Jason Holder Lord Megachief of Gold 2018 earlier this year, we said that the three Tests against England would give us more of a sense of the true scale and scope of Jasonholderness. In the first Test at Bridgetown, he hit an unbeaten 202 from number eight and the West Indies won. In Antigua, he took five wickets and the West Indies won. In the third Test, he was banned and the West Indies played less well and got bea...

Are you David Lloyd’s unoccupied hand when Nasser Hussain is answering a question? Because we are

We’ve become increasingly fascinated with one of David Lloyd’s hands over the past few weeks. It is the one that hangs by his side when Ian Ward interviews himself and Nasser Hussain at the end of each day’s play on Sky Sports. It is not the one that holds the microphone. It is the redundant one. The unoccupied one. When Nasser Hussain is answering a question, David Lloyd’s unoccupied hand generally does one of two things: it either does an awkward impression of a passive hand o...

Something truly remarkable might be about to happen and it involves Keaton Jennings

Keaton Jennings (via Channel 5) Remember last week when Joe Denly was picked for England because he happened to be nearby and wasn’t Keaton Jennings? Well it looks like those selection criteria were a little too exacting so they may have to soften them a bit. You may be aware that there are fitness concerns about Foakes, Stokes and Woakes, but let us alert you to the fact that all the time you spend thinking about how their names rhyme was time you didn’t spend thinking about w...

We’ve accidentally made the case for England to drop Moeen Ali

We love Moeen Ali. We’d never deliberately make the case for him to be dropped because he’s magic. What happened was we were writing about Sam Curran and Adil Rashid and how they’re slightly one-dimensional bowlers who work brilliantly within a six-man attack but maybe not so well in a five-man attack when it occurred to us that maybe this applied to Moeen as well. So we checked. And very unfortunately, it looks like it does apply to Moeen as well. The piece is over at Wisden...

Red Lipstick Sent A Strong Message At The State Of The Union

At the State of the Union last night, it was hard to ignore the sea of white. In a chamber of the Capitol that's usually bustling with black suits, navy suits, red ties, and blue ties, more than 100 congresswomen chose to wear white as a nod to 20th century suffragettes who fought for women's right to vote — and never backed down.And while that surely made a political statement, there was also another symbolic element to many of these women's looks: red lipstick.It was, in effect, the big beau...
