Evil v Good, day 3: England’s best day so far

We’re pitting an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most against an Antagonists XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode. Taken in isolation, day two was less rubbish than day one. However, the nature of Test cricket is that it cannot be taken in isolation, so in fact day two compounded day one such that we arrive here at day three in an even worse position than yesterday morning. England are 19-0 and 208 runs behind. That’s pretty much where yo...

Evil v Good, day 2: Australia capitalise

We’re pitting an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most against an Antagonists XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode. Day one was a colossal and predictable catastrophe for England. Australia resume on 50-1. Morning session Jimmy Anderson opens the bowling and Matthew Hayden hits him for four. Steve Harmison bowls to Ricky Ponting at the other end. Harmy appeals for LBW against Hayden but it pitched about a foot outside leg. Tha...

Evil v Good, day 1: England fail to impose themselves

We’re pitting an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most against an Antagonists XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode. Before we start, it’s worth having a very quick Sim Series recap because a lot of these players have already played this format. We’ve played two 1990s-est Ashes Tests (and let’s be honest, this is a very similar thing again). Notable performances from those matches include Graeme Hick top scoring in both innings of the first m...

Two dismissals an innings and over: who was Test cricket’s busiest wicketkeeper?

We don’t write about wicketkeepers very much and that’s wrong. Batsmen and bowlers aren’t the only ones deserving of our attention. Squatters have rights too. This article is about the select band of stumpers who have averaged more than two dismissals an innings in Tests. Wicketkeepers who’ve taken two dismissals an innings and over. It’s not many, you know. If we limit ourselves to guys who’ve played at least 20 Tests so that we can rule out Steve Rhodes, we’re left with just six men and a...

1990s Ashes Rematch: Australia fight hard against unpredictable England attack on day 4

Last month we pitted a 90s England XI against a 90s Australia XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode and the Aussies won. This is the rematch Down Under. Australia (151-2) trail England (575-5 dec) by 424 runs. Here’s what happened on day three. Greg Blewett and Mark Waugh walk out to bat. The sun is out and the ball is 43 overs old, but the pitch is turning and there’s a bit of erratic bounce too. Morning session Angus Fraser lumbers in to start...

1990s Ashes Rematch: Bevan mystery deepens on day 3

Last month we pitted a 90s England XI against a 90s Australia XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode and the Aussies won. This is the rematch Down Under. Day two ended with England 413-4. Nasser Hussain is unbeaten on 145 having batted through the day. Robin Smith is on 22. Mark Taylor still hasn’t given Michael Bevan a bowl. Morning session After much talk about declarations on commentary (Shane Warne thinks Michael Atherton should have declared halfway th...

1990s Ashes Rematch: England bat first on day 1

Last month we pitted a 90s England XI against a 90s Australia XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode and the Aussies won. This is the rematch Down Under. A quick recap. These teams are not 1990s best XIs. They are 1990s-est XIs. Here’s our workings-out. In short, the Australia XI for this match is the same as for the first match, because that is still the most 90s XI. The England XI is quite a bit different because that’s how picking 90s England sides works. T...

The 1990s-est Ashes, day three: Australia plug away

Last week we picked our 1990s-est England team and our 1990s-est Australia team. This week we’re pitting them against each other in a one-off exhibition Test match with the aid of Cricket Captain 2018’s ‘All-Time Greats’ mode. (This follows Sim Series: Sri Lanka v England last month.) England (66-0) trail Australia (519 all out) by 453 runs. Mike Atherton and Nick Knight walk out. It’s cloudy, but after yesterday evening’s show of solidity, there’s some cause for optimism. Morn...

Sim Nineties: the 1990s-est Ashes – day one

Last week we picked our 1990s-est England team and our 1990s-est Australia team. This week we’re pitting them against each other in a one-off exhibition Test match with the aid of Cricket Captain 2018’s ‘All-Time Greats’ mode. (This follows Sim Series: Sri Lanka v England last month.) The match is being played in England because that’s what we decided. If you think that gives England an advantage, consider (a) what happened in the Ashes during the 1990s (Australia won every series, ho...

Lose 220kg, beat back pain, love yourself: personal trainers on lessons that changed their lives

Fitness coaches don’t all start out as slim and healthy twentysomethings. Here’s how three overcame obesity and illness – and their advice for the rest of us‘Don’t go on a diet.” That’s one tip from personal trainer Graham Waugh, 50, and may be surprising given that he once weighed three times as much as he does now. A few years ago, he was 330kg (52st) and stuck at home, feeling as if he was waiting to die. Exercise had never been a part of his life, but after bariatric surgery, he began visiti...

EXCLUSIVE: Shane Warne capable of self-awareness

Shane Warne (via Cricket Australia YouTube) Shane Warne’s got another book out – No Spin. In it, he’s taken the time to dig over old grievances with Steve Waugh. The story is this. Steve Waugh wanted to drop Shane Warne once because he was coming back from major shoulder surgery and he wasn’t bowling very well. Warne agreed that he wasn’t bowling very well, but said he was about to start bowling very well any minute now, so Waugh shouldn’t drop him. Waugh dropped him. Let’s say that the two m...

Australia player-by-player; Going at it home and away - final Ashes notes

Steve Smith said that he felt the series turned on Nathan Lyon's run out of James Vince on the first afternoon at Brisbane. The city was unseasonably cool, the Gabba pitch one England would have knelt down in prayer for, low and sluggish and about as typical of Queensland as Julian Assange. Vince was on 83 and cruising like a rich granny, England 143-2, ahead for the first and, as it turned out, last time. Smith was right, Brisbane was England's chance. How fleeting it was, and how suddenly it w...

Gemstone Food Is The Next Big Trend & We've Got Proof In The Form Of Toast

Adeline Waugh is at it again. If you don't know that name, you might want to look up her Instagram because the food stylist can be traced to the very beginnings of the unicorn and mermaid food trends. And this time the creator of both unicorn AND mermaid toast has brought us yet another visually-enticing edible mashup. It's rock-themed — well, "gemstone" themed — and yes, it's still multicolored. Waugh's caption reads: "What's the logical thing to do when you have multiple deadlines and real th...

A post shared by Adeline Waugh (@vibrantandpure) on Mar 7, 2017 at 8:44am PST Move over unicorn foods, y’all are about to be dethroned. Someone has just discovered a whole new way to use vibrant colors in a breakfast dish, and it is oh so cute. Interestingly, this new trend also draws inspiration from a favorite mythical creature, the mermaid. A food stylist named Adeline Waugh recently posted a photo of her newest funky creation, which she has dubbed mermaid toast.You may recall th...

Asad Shafiq is a HERO

No one expected Pakistan to chase 490, so when Pakistan ended day 4 with only 108 more to get with 2 wickets in hand, expectations changed.Hopes rose even further as the target got to less than 50 on the 5th day.But then, when another 40 odd runs were required, Pakistan lost Asad Shafiq, the man who had turned the first test between Pakistan and Australia on its head.It was a monumental effort by Asad Shafiq, which took Pakistan to 450 in the 4th innings. Easily their highest every 4th innings t...

Runs and Trust (8th January 2012)

A piece about Michael Clarke, from early 2012. There was a time when everyone had an opinion about Clarke, many of which didn't seem to make much sense to me. My opinion was that he was a bloody classic batsman. Michael Clarke could always bat. He could bat when he came to England with the Australian Under-19 side in 1999. He could bat when he made his Test debut in India in 2004. He could bat when he took over the captaincy of his country a year ago and he can bat now. If you wanted, you ...

Who Wants To Fall For A Gay Millionaire?

The sumptuously atmospheric Upper East Side gay drama, Those People opens for a one-week run this weekend at the Cinema Village in New York City and the Arena Cinema Hollywood in Los Angeles. First time writer-director Joey Kuhn brings to the screen this semi-autobiographical tale of a pining eroticized friendship between his alter-ego Charlie (distractingly handsome Jonathan Gordon) and the spoiled rich kid son of real-life swindler Bernie Madoff (melodramatic, dark and handsome Sebastian, pla...
