Mike Hayward had his cricket career ruined due to a terrible motorcycle accident. He is a tall strapping fast bowler who as an 18-year-old for the SA Schools XI in 1989 had the likes of Clive Rice hopping around the crease in a match against Transvaal (now Gauteng). The accident left him with back injuries which curtailed a promising career. He still finds time to play the odd club game but has since turned his sights to an already promising schoolboy coaching career.

After 8-0, MS Dhoni could look forward to building a team from scratch; now, there is nothing left for him to contribute. Free him from the Test captaincy and he could yet give back in other ways
For all MS Dhoni's many trophies and accomplishments, Test cricket continues to resist his magic and indefinitely postpone his motorbike ride into the sunset
His decisions in the England series have seemed to confirm that he does not care too much for the Test game. Maybe he should be concentrating on the World Cup
Why does the man who is possibly England's greatest fast bowler occasionally turn into Mr Hyde on the field?
