Cricket stuff that doesn't deserve its own thread

The UK gets far more of its rainfall during the winter months......Australia more during their summer. Remind me again when we play cricket?

RIP in peace soulless concrete bowl with rainbow plastic bucket seats and (at least the last two summers) spicy pitch, we barely knew ye

(tl;dr the entire Gabba precinct is being redeveloped, including a knockdown-rebuild for the stadium, for the Olympics in 2032)

Brad Hodge is racing around Sandown in a Hyundai Excel in the vic state Excel championship today

That is certainly not a collection of words I ever thought I would be using in the same sentence

What formula is that?
Honestly it is real grassroots level stuff, someone a few years back had the bright idea of taking the surplus of ****box Excels around, sticking a rollcage in them, and going racing. It's really about as cheap and entry level as motorsports gets, but a few young guys have started there in recent years before rapidly going on to bigger and better things

None of the other drivers in that particular the field are particularly notable, Hodge was still firmly at the back though.

Today in cricket history,

Adam Gilchrist pulverised the South African attack with the fastest Test double-century at the time, in Johannesburg. He got to the landmark off his 212th delivery, hitting the 19th four of his innings. At one point, when he was on 169, Gilchrist aimed for an advertising hoarding that promised a bar of gold to anyone who hit it, by scooping a length delivery to it. He missed by a few feet but it showed how he was just playing with the South African bowling that was sans Shaun Pollock, and for parts of the match an injured Allan Donald (who retired from Tests after the game). South Africa went down by an innings and 360 runs - the second-heaviest defeat in Tests - but Gilchrist's record was overtaken three weeks later by Nathan Astle against England. "
