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...

Twice today we’ve heard that John Campbell’s nickname is Cannonball

John Campbell (via Sky Sports) That’s often enough for it to be a fact, isn’t it? As a journalist, we consider the second instance corroboration. The word Cannonball initially makes us think of three things. Ron BurgundyThe Cannonball Run (which we thought was the greatest film ever for about a week and a half when we were around ten)The Breeders (And absolutely, absolutely not Damien Rice.

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...
