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:

Rumours have been circulating since the announcement of England’s ‘pre-Ashes’ squad that Michael Vaughan is set to call time on his cricketing career, and it seems that it’s about to happen.

Undoubtedly, Vaughan will be remembered chiefly for his acheivements as England captain, most famously regaining the Ashes in 2005, but he wasn’t a bad player either (at least until he was struck by the curse of the straight one). Enjoy some of his best moments below:

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”.

In honour of Umar Gul’s remarkable 5-6 yesterday (youtube here), here are four more of the best-ever T20I bowling performances:

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:

In case anyone was wondering why it is that Chris Gayle prefers Twenty20 cricket, watch the below, make a mental comparison to his distracted play in the recent Tests against England, and perhaps things will be clearer:

Cricket and birdlife have always been natural enemies, as the stuffed sparrow at Lord’s shows, and Jacques Rudolph has continued the tradition by taking out a pigeon in the Roses Twenty20 match last week:

If you’ll excuse the pun, it’s fair to say that one of the true giants of Associate cricket has retired in Dwayne Leverock. Sluggo, as he is known, has often been a figure of fun owing to his size, but his talent as a spinner should not be understated. His figures – 34 wickets at 33.02 with an economy of 4.00 in ODIs, 71 wickets at 26.47 in just 15 first-class appearances – are strong, but he will be remembered by most of us outside of Bermuda for his outstanding catch against India in the 2007 World Cup, which you can enjoy again below (with, admittedly, a somewhat questionable soundtrack):
