THE TEN MINUTE FORTNIGHT: Looking forward to watching county cricket, and Cricket the Musical in Sydney

"I'm not expecting to go out for a pint with Kumar Roach after the game, but we can still be nattering at the boundary edge."

"At the beginning of the summer, Butcher had been in such horrible form that he had been playing for the Surrey Second XI. The chairman of selectors for the England test team, at the end of the season, was happy to state that Butcher owed his place simply to the lack of options elsewhere."

THE REVIEW (21'35): Tatenda Taibu's Keeper of Faith: Cricket, Conflict and God in Zimbabwe's Age of Extremes
