This, that and the other. Mostly the other
As an Englishman, I have never once liked an Australian fast bowler for even a fraction of a second.

Until now! You tell 'em, Pat. Where do you stand on "should of"?
James Franklin was surprised by the clientele at his favourite tourist attraction.
First the playgrounds and now this. Is there nowhere you can go these days which isn't overrun by children?
The charity match
There was a Jimmy Anderson benefit match this week. Graeme Swann had a memorable experience.
One for UK readers in their thirties there. Sorry, everyone else.
Iain O'Brien had a great week.
When was the second happiest occasion when you've seen one?
The summer has been a wet one in the UK. Stuart Broad has been carefully monitoring the skies, primed for action.
"Its not raining. Sprinting to the outdoor nets!"
You've got to make the most of what you get. It's doubtful the skies were still clear when he arrived at his destination.
The film review
Rob Key watched This Means War. Tell us all about it, Rob.
"This means war. Is a very bad film"
County cricketers really do lack inspiration when it comes to going out for food. Is there some sort of national sponsorship deal in place here?
"Travelling done, nets done, nando's done. Time to peruse the shops #dangerous"
@Smeaker18 (Stuart Meaker)
"The foxes loving the discount at Nando's"
@Hoggy602 (Matthew Hoggard)
Discount? Is that a special cricketers' discount?
And are cricketers still "smashing" their food instead of eating it?
Sounds like it.
Demolition. Is that a step up or down from smashing? Daresay I know where the chicken was from though.
The fine dining
Amid all this Nando-smashing, at least Graeme Swann's taking the time to enjoy some quality meals.
That's the spirit.
Tino Best's modesty corner
"Don't hate what u can't Imitate #KeepItReal"
Does this give impressionists more room for manoeuvre?
