A Tennessee Man Died In Jail Because He Couldn’t Afford His $100 Bond

On February 22, staff at a jail in Tennessee found 32-year-old Tommy Young unresponsive in his cell. He’d been held in the facility on assault charges since January, unable to pay his $100 bail. The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office told a local Fox affiliate that the preliminary information indicated he died by suicide, but Young’s family is skeptical. “Would he have committed suicide then, when he’s only got 3 weeks until he comes home,” said Angela Stokes, Young’s mother. She told rep...

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...

Faf du Plessis and the implacable cruelty of cricket

Faf du Plessis is so comically alpha that he can have AB de Villiers as a friend since schooldays and not be overshadowed. AB might be the greater player but he's one of life's handsome wingmen, Ice Man to Faf's Maverick. Faf du Plessis is so alpha, his box is called 'The Beast'. He wears pink gloves and has pink stickers on his bat in the same way that 1980s lover boys wore a pink shirt, to let the ladies know. His own playing shirts have the sleeves cut high to best display those magnificent t...

Flawed England reminded that relying on miracles is the way of fools

For those who took confidence from coincidence, there was much to hold dear. Another Sunday in 2019. Another three hundred-plus target history suggested was well out of the reach of men, especially these ones rolled so meekly in their first innings. Another solid enough base to launch a successful journey into the unknown. Even when Rory Burns and Joe Denly, the two overnight batsmen, fell in the opening session, Ben Stokes’ march to the middle brought with it serendipity. Here was the miracle m...
