Freddy's twin failures!

Warne Trumps England's Flintoff Again -- at the Races

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) --

Shane Warne's mastery over Andrew Flintoff may extend beyond the cricket field.

Four hours after Warne's leg-spin bowling inspired Australia to an unexpected victory over Flintoff's England in the second Ashes Test, a racehorse called Warne's Way romped home in the 12:40 at Fontwell. It was a 9-2 chance.

In the 1:40 race at the same southern England track, Flintoff, a horse part-owned by the England captain, could only manage second place. The 9-4 shot was beaten by a distance, a horseracing term that means more than 30 lengths.

One-day cricket can sometimes get predictible and boring.. was watching this otherwise very interesting encounter between Australia and Newzealand, when i thought of adding a little more fun to life. Also started doing some googling for things just beyond cricket. keywords: cricketer's wives, cricket girls, hot cricket et al. Some interesting findings:

Pic on left: Will discovers Graeme Smith's "bit-on-the-side" Minki van der Westhuizen. ( ). Stick Cricket thinks she is every cricket fan's dream women. What do u think?

Remember Craig Mc Dermott? The ex-cricketer is in the midst of a "sex tape blackmail". Poor guy had to recently shell out Aus$40,000 to stop an intimate film invloving him and wife from being put on the web.
