It’s to more closely monitor the ageing process.

Matthew Hayden and his bat

‘Still a few wisps of hair at the front there. Not time to retire yet’.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.

  1. Mirror, mirror, on the bat…
    …who’s the most stupid Aussie [censored]?

    Well, it’s a valid question!

  2. Has your hatred of Hayden caused you to carelessly split an infinitive in your opening sentence?

  3. Hayden must also be getting very long-sighted, judging by the distance at which he is holding his bat/mirror. They do say the eyes are the first thing to go.

  4. I am torn between being (a) pleasure at The Scientician’s correct use of the possessive apostrophe, and (b) the faintly sick feeling I get on reading that nickname.
