Shakib al Hasan has been putting in notable performances for some time, and he continues to impress despite having a relatively low profile internationally. If you’re not familiar with him, then watch the below and learn something.

Rain breaks have a habit of throwing up oddities, and yesterday’s washout at Edgbaston has enabled me to discover the below. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or not – the first is a video of Brett Lee singing the Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want it That Way’ to Shane Watson (himself a keen strummer and Kumar Sangakkara, and the second is, if anything, stranger.

Enjoy, if that’s the right word:

India looked to be up against it when they needed 34 from the last four overs (and even when they needed 11 from the final over) in yesterday’s Third ODI against the West Indies, but their captain stepped up to ease them home:

Yuvraj Singh evidently didn’t realise the World Twenty20 was over, smashing 131 from 102 balls for India in yesterday’s ODI against the West Indies. Enjoy highlights below:

Phil Tufnell has recorded an Ashes-themed ‘song’ to the tune of Two Little Boys. It’s not good. Neil Hannon (of The Divine Comedy) and Thomas Walsh (of Pugwash) have released an album under the name of the Duckworth-Lewis Method, which is better, and also features guest appearances from the likes of Matt Berry, always a bonus.

In the past, the peak of cricket-based music has arguably been Half Man Half Biscuit’s tribute to Fred Titmus, which you can enjoy here, and perhaps Roy Harper’s ‘When An Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease‘. The D-L Method‘s ‘Jiggery Pokery’ (a song about Shane Warne’s ‘ball of the century’ which you can listen to here) could yet lay claim to the title of Greatest Ever Cricket Song, not least because of lyrics such as “I took the crease to great applause and focused on my dinner/ I knew that I had little cause, to fear their young leg spinner”.

It seems the West Indies don’t just have one player who can go ballistic. There’s Dwayne Bravo, too. Enjoy his 66 not out against India (from a mere 36 balls) below:

Christmas Youtube: Boxing Day

It’s Boxing Day, and in Australia that means it’s the Boxing Day Test. The long history of playing cricket in Melbourne on December 26th has thrown up a number of memorable moments, mainly of success for the home side – the Aussies haven’t lost a Boxing Day Test since 1998 – and for Shane Warne in particular, from his 7-52 in 1992 to his 700th Test wicket in 2006.

Another legend of the game who has enjoyed a special post-Christmas present in the past is Sachin Tendulkar, who made 116 in 1999, during the same match that Brett Lee took his first Test wicket.

With the cash bonanza that is the Stanford Super Series about to get underway, here’s a quick introduction to some of the personalities involved:

  • England arguably have the least Twenty20 experience of the four sides competing, but the likes of Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff should be able to adapt their big hitting to the format.
