Credit to Nathan Lyon who finally ended the partnership of Dawid Malan & Joe Root this morning with his 400th Test wicket on Malan (82) + 4 wicket haul, it’s also great to see Australia’s fielding improve with a few successful catches as well as some support to their frontline bowling options from Cameron Green where he got rid of Root for 89.

It gave time for Australia’s frontline quicks (Pat Cummins & Josh Hazlewood) to get back up to speed & made good use of that 2nd new ball where they cleared the remaining England batting card with Green & Lyon for 299 & a 19 run trail before Australia finished the game easily with winning runs by 9 wickets, well done to the Aussies as they lead the five-match Ashes series 1-0.

England have kept it simple during their 2nd innings resurgence yesterday afternoon with Root & Malan despite the openers still being sub-par after a poor first two days, but they just couldn’t keep that momentum going when they returned this AM with potential hundreds & a bigger run stand stolen by Australia before a small lead wasn’t enough to stay in contention.

What Australia will focus now is continue their strong start going into Adelaide & hope that David Warner recovers in time for Thursday’s next test, England needs to at least revisit their opening options if they are to fight back as these guys like Rory Burns who weren’t up to the challenge while they would greatly benefit from James Anderson’s return & maybe Stuart Broad with the ball.

Hats off to Travis Head who produced a test quality knock of 152 for Australia which a little more than what England scored in the 1st innings (147), although Australia left an acceptable lead of 278 when they were all out for 425 but they haven’t found it much ever since after their strong start off England’s openers especially with the partnership of David Malan & Joe Root that halted their progress.

Meanwhile, Mark Wood did a great finishing up with the ball earlier on Day 3 for England, now these openers (Rory Burns & Haseeb Hameed) were slapped again with respective sub-par scores after lunch but gotta say the top-order partnership of Joe Root & David Malan have rescued their day going into Day 4 where they both batted simply down the ground, hung in there & earned their own 50s off the bat while building a big partnership at the same time.

What Australia has to do is make the most of that new ball tomorrow with flawless fielding by their side after a exhausted 2nd half run today as they still have a 58 run lead at 220-2 if not there’s still another easy way to go 1-0 up in this Ashes series, while England need Root (86*) & Malan (80*) to keep their head up by converting these centuries, climb out of the run trail & stay there for longer that will at least turn into a draw or an outside shot of winning the 1st Test.

That partnership with David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne was one of Australia’s best moments earlier on Day 2, who both remained calm and collective in the middle before they flied plenty of decent shots out of the park that sealed their half-tons. 

Warner & Labuschagne may not have converted into a century going into tea when Australia just overtook England for the lead but Travis Head kept them alive in the middle at No.5 when he proved doubters wrong about his inconsistency & earned his way to a nice ton himself which is a wonderful way Australia’s end Day 2 progress in style.

They lead by 196 runs at 343-7 so Australia should stay at the crease for a little longer with Head still out there & Mitchell Starc can bat a handy amount of runs before we bring out their bowling strikeforce & try to finish that 1st Test with a win.

Meanwhile, England took an early advantage off the inexperienced Marcus Harris thanks to Ollie Robinson, who also blocked Warner towards escaping his nervous 90s on 94 before he launched a free run & clean bowled Cameron Green for a duck.

Although England were unlucky to dismiss Warner earlier on through that no ball from Ben Stokes, who just overstepped the line on his front foot but England looked very lost during the 1st half of today while wiping Steve Smith for 12 &  Australia’s middle-order card wasn’t enough to reserve their slump thanks to the last man standing in Travis Head.

What England has to do now is wrap up this bowling spell ASAP in the AM session tomorrow before they can use most of Day 3 through lunch & tea to catch up with the bat, then they can use Day 4 to set Australia a difficult run total to chase but only if one or two of their decent batsmen can survive long enough.

What a day to kickstart their Ashes campaign at The Gabba in Brisbane for the Aussies on Day 1 where they found a way to knock down England’s tail end up early with four wickets (59-4) in the AM session ahead of lunch, then continued that momentum after they bowled them all out for 147.

Nice early tea break for the home side as Pat Cummins bowled beautifully that earned his five-wicket haul alongside Josh Hazlewood who robbed England’s key players with the bat, but the rain has held back for the rest of the afternoon, so Australia will come out to bat tomorrow during the start of Day 2 & use that time to build a big partnership.

England on the other hand gave themselves a lift after lunch thanks to the middle-order partnership of Ollie Pope and Jos Buttler who each made 30+ runs, the damage was already done, however, when the England top-order were exposed by the opposition fast bowling earlier on before it was too late that gave Buttler & Pope a lot of pressure to survive at least after Day 1 which wasn’t successful.

What England can do now is smash the Australian top-order out early & overtake them for the lead but they only have one dedicated fast bowler in Mark Wood and spinner (Jack Leach) plus two fast bowling all-rounders to that job with no Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson.

We’ll wait and see if this England bowling group is going to surprise us tomorrow on Day 2 but if you look at Australia’s decent batting arsenal then Australia continue to build that strong Day 1 momentum with a huge total before they think about finishing that 1st test match on a high.

Australia won their first ever T20 world cup, after a commanding run chase over New Zealand.

The Aussies won the toss and decided to bowl, a decision that has become pretty common in this world cup due to the dew effect and how the pitch matures. It seemed to be a pretty smart decision early on, with Josh Hazelwood taking the wicket of semi final hero Darrell Mitchell, in the third over. The other opener Martin Guptill scored a slow 28 runs off of 35 balls, before he chipped one to Marcus Stoinis.

But from there on it was the Kiwi captain who took control of the innings. After a slow start, Kane Williamson exploded through the middle overs, hitting thirteen boundaries including three sixes in a spectacular innings. Williamson was able to score his 85 off of just 48 deliveries. It was a spectacular innings, that led New Zealand to finish on 172-4, after Jimmy Neesham smacked a six towards the close of play.

It meant Australia had the difficult task of chasing 173 on a slow pitch. Their run chase was made a lot more difficult when they lost captain Aaron Finch for just five runs in the third over. But from there, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh put on the match winning partnership of 92, before Warner was bowled out by Trent Boult.

While Australia came into the tournament with some incredible batsmen like David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch, it was ten year veteran Mitchell Marsh who provided the match winning performance. Coming in with Australia down 15-1 after a slow start, Marsh provided a controlled but impressive innings which led his side to victory.

Marsh had been dropped in the run up to the tournament, but was reinstated into the team as the tournament began, and provided the most important innings of his career in the final. Marsh hit some beautiful shots before Glenn Maxwell took Australia past 173, with seven balls to spare.

Top 3 Performances

3. Kane Williamson produced what was thought to be a match winning performance. His T20 ability is often overlooked, but the captain did everything to try to lead his team to victory today, narrowly falling short of defending their total.

2. While Williamson batted excellently, Josh Hazlewood showed why he is one of th best t20 bowlers in the world once again, taking 3 wickets for just 16 runs, including the wicket of Williamson. It was a bowling performance that meant no other New Zealand batter could properly help their captain

1. Mitch Marsh produced his greatest ever performance. Australia’s batting had been a worry coming into the tournament, with questions all across their line-up. But Marsh put to bed any questions about him being in the team. Marsh never looked worried as he hit a match winning 77 which included four big sixes. It was a performance no one expected, but came at exactly the right time for Australia.

This is the Aussies first ever t20 world cup victory, despite winning five world cups in ODI cricket. Australia lost in 2010 to England, but took care of things today. It means they go into the 2022 world cup which is hosted in Australia as holders, looking to defend their crown at home.

New Zealand need to regroup after a difficult loss in the final, but they will go into the world cup next year with a good squad that should have some crucial additions like Lochie Ferguson and Finn Allen come back into the squad to give them a good shot at the world cup in 2022.

Really since the turn of the century, we have seen more and more sportsmen and sportswomen play into later ages. With better healthcare and nutrition, sportspeople are able to take care of their bodies later and later. Darren Stevens is the obvious example of this, having just been a key member of Kent winning the Blast. So it bring up an interesting point, which is whether or not professional cricketers can play into their 40s.

The case for cricketers playing into their 40s has been backed up a lot recently by performances in domestic and international cricket by a variety of players. Darren Stevens is a good example of a player in his 40s, still performing at a high level in domestic cricket. Stevens produced a match winning performance in the blast semi final against Sussex, hitting an impressive 47 off 28 as he got his side up to 168. He backed that performance up with his bowling, getting a big wicket in Sussex batsmen David Wiese. Stevens is quite easily old enough to be the father of a lot of his teammates, starting his county championship career before teammates Zak Crawley and Jordan Cox were born. 

Stevens has never played for England, but he is widely regarded as the greatest English all rounder to never play for his country. Averaging 35 with the bat and 24 with the ball across its career means it’s tough to see why he has never been called up, but Stevens is a great example of age being irrelevant in domestic cricket. There aren’t many examples of players in county cricket playing above 40, with Stevens being the first 45 year old to play county championship cricket since Eddie Hemmings back in 1994. 

Tim Murtagh is another good example, as he is captain of Middlesex at the age of 40. The problem with county championship games is it can be very difficult on the body. Four day matches are tough for players in their 40s, with the potential for whole days to be spent out in the field. Fielding is the main problem, as it can be extremely tiring for players, and the long season is tough for their bodies. County championship teams play around 14 games a year, which can be up to four days long. It is very difficult for players to keep up when their bodies are struggling to cope with the intense workloads.

Something that you will see a lot more often is players in their 40s playing T20 cricket. T20 cricket is a lot less challenging on the body, as these players have a lot less to do. It is why you see players like AB De Villiers, Andre Flintoff and Shane Warne only play T20 cricket at the end of their careers. T20 gives these players a format which is a lot less challenging on their bodies, as games go from being 4 days to 4 hours. At the moment, looking at this years blast, you saw Gareth Batty, Darren Stevens and Ryan ten Doeschate all still performing to a high level in the blast, with Stevens being the only one of still play county championship games. 

The IPL seems to be a place where legends play when they’re still over 40 years old. Australian legends Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne both played in the IPL aged 41. Legendary spinner Muttiah Muralitharan played in the IPL aged 42, with his last season being in 2014 for Royal Challengers Bangalore. The most impressive of any would be Australian spinner Brad Hogg. Hogg played in the IPL with Kolkata in 2016, aged 45. You will often see spinners play to later ages, as shown by Warne, Hogg and Muralitharan all playing in the IPL past 40. Spin bowling is a lot less stressful on the body than fast bowling. We see pace bowlers like Mark Wood throw their bodies into every ball, putting an incredibly large amount of force through their knees and ankles every ball.  Spinners don’t have the same amount of force going through their bodies as they bowl. This means they can continue to bowl at a later age without losing any of what makes them a great bowler. It is one of the reasons why Darren Stevens has taken so many wickets still in his 40s, he never relied on blistering pace to get wickets when he was younger. Therefore he could continue to bowl the same way even when his body started to get slower. This is why you will see spin bowlers continue to play further into their 30s and 40s than pace bowlers.

In International cricket, there are still currently very few players playing into their 40s. Chris Gayle and Mohammad Hafeez are good examples of that currently. Both in the squads for their countries for the t20 world cup later this year, both are still playing to an exceptionally high level. Chris Gayle still possess the power hitting that has made him a monster over his career. Hafeez is still an excellent all rounder and there are a lot of teams worldwide who would love to have the 40 year old in their team. Both are great examples that cricketers can play into their 40s, even in international cricket. The 2019 world cup saw 40 year old Imran Tahir pick up 11 wickets in the tournament for South Africa, including getting England captain Eoin Morgan out. T20 cricket has shown to be a good place for aging cricket stars. International cricket can be good for stars, especially T20.

However, something you see a lot less of is players in their 40s succeeding in test cricket. You can see this in domestic cricket, as the county championship has talented players like Hashim Amla and Alastair Cook succeeding, when they have been out of test cricket for a few years. Amla and Cook are both still playing at a high quality, but they both also are unlikely to be able to play well in test cricket. Test cricket is incredibly tough on the body, with a five match series being really tough on the body. Currently, test cricket does not have anyone playing at the age of 40 or over. Dilruwan Perera and Jimmy Anderson are the closest to 40, both playing test cricket at the grand age of 39. It is an impressive feat, specifically for Anderson, who is still England’s best pace bowler despite his age. Jimmy is truly a phenomenal cricketer, and he has expressed his interest in playing into his 40s. Jimmy wants to be playing in the ashes later this year, and even carry on beyond the series. It is a difficult thing to do, as your body will deteriorate. There is no way Anderson plays all five tests this winter, and he will need the rest he has now before the ashes.

Sadly, the main reason for cricketers struggling to play into their 40s is injury. Injuries become more and more common the older you get, as players bodies just start to age and wear. Injuries have plagued Anderson over the last few years, and it seems unlikely he can make it into his 40s without more injuries. It is why many players avoid the longest form of the game as a whole when they age, because it is incredibly testing on your body. Fast bowlers especially have to be wary of this. Just looking at England’s fast bowling attack, we have seen injuries to Stuart Broad, Jimmy Anderson, Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes just in the last 12 months. Injuries can ruin careers. Sadly, Dale Steyn is a great example of this. Steyn retiring from test cricket two years ago was a big disappointment for cricket faans, but the fast bowler just could not stay healthy. No matter the advancement we see in nutrition and wellness, injuries will still happen. They are tough to avoid and can make it very difficult to still play at a high level into your 40s. There is no way that after his serious injury this year that Jofra Archer will still be able to play in his 40s. It is a lot easier for spinners and batsmen to still succeed during their 40s.

Players like Darren Stevens, Chris Gayle and Jimmy Anderson are showing that you can play at a high level in all different formats, as you begin to hit your 40s and even get into your mid-40s. It will continue to become easier, as treatment and healthcare continues to improve. Hopefully for these players, the intensity of cricket is not increasing more than the improvements in taking care of these players bodies. It gives a lot of hope to amateurs or semi pro players, as they can still take that step into professional career, into their 30s and even early 40s. This trend will likely continue and more and more cricketers will play into their 40s.

Swimming is one of the best cardiovascular and muscular physical exercises that we can perform without fear of injuring our joints or other parts of the body.

If you are thinking of starting a swimming routine in a pool or you already do it, you must take into account its pros and cons.

Among its advantages is the benefit of health: It is a sport that exercises the whole body and increases your metabolism, which many calories per hour therefore helps to lose weight.

Image Reference: Jacob Lund via Shuttershock

Excellent for joints when floating, muscles do not have to support our weight. For that reason, it is recommended for people with arthritis, overweight or muscle aches.

Strengthens the immune system and reduces cases of flu and colds in winter.

Greatly reduces stress and anxiety. Strengthens the heart, reduces the risk of heart attacks as it is one of the best cardiovascular sports.

However, besides being an excellent sport with numerous health benefits it has it’s disadvantage as well and one of them is because of chlorine. You must take care of your skin, since you are more prone to the appearance of fungi.

The pools are disinfected with chlorine and other chemicals so it can cause skin allergies such as dermatitis, and also irritate the mucous membranes mainly the eyes.

In addition to mycosis or fungi on your skin, many times after swimming, you will notice that your eyes become red and irritated, and your skin is left feeling dry. This happens more often when chlorine levels are not respected and that is why we must protect our eyes and skin. You should also know that a lot of chlorine damages our hair by drying it out.

But what is chlorine?

Chlorine is a chemical agent used to treat pool water, that in certain concentrations usually irritates the mucous membranes and the respiratory system.

According to the standard, the amount of chlorine that the water in a pool must have must be between 0.20 and 0.60 milligrams per liter (chlorine is perceived by smell when it contains 0.30 mg / l). If our pool has more chlorine than necessary, the first effect on our body is seen in the eyes, which red, then dry the nose, throat …

Tips to protect your skin from chlorine

The first is extremely important. Shower before entering in the pool. With this we get rid of certain bacteria that we can carry in sweat or even on bare feet. For example: When leaving the pool, back to the shower so that the tap water drags as much chlorine as possible from our hair and skin.

 2. When you get home as soon as possible bathe with soap to eliminate all the chlorine that may remain on the skin.

3. It’s time to recover the elasticity of the skin: use a moisturizer and apply it to your body and face.

4. The hair also suffers similar consequences, it dries out. That’s why it’s important to wear a bathing cap. In the shower, already at home, use conditioners I would recommend using argan or coconut oil that are very moisturizing after a day of swimming.

Equipment to protect you during swimming I recommend a swimmer’s cap and goggles. Wear sandals when getting out of the pool and walk around it.

Image Reference: Lilkin via Shuttershock

To avoid skin rashes after a pool session I recommend using calendula, aloe and green tea creams, then you should moisturize your skin with a good moisturizer. I recommend the Farmasi brand’s high quality skincare products that I use after swimming. They work very well in maintaining healthy hair and beautiful, clear, skin. 

Below is a link where the skincare products can be found: https://www.farmasius.com/SarhaySkaggs

Finally, I recommend swimming in a pool three times per week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, allowing your mucous membranes, joints, skin and hair to recover on the non-swimming days.

Sim racing is a growing genre that can seem inaccessible. The high cost of gaming wheels, in particular, can be a tough pill for your wallet to swallow. Luckily, there are some affordable options out there, and we’ve assembled the top 3 ones to help you break into the adrenaline-pumping world of simulator games.

Hori Apex 4/Overdrive ($189-245)

The Hori Apex 4 (PS4/PS5, PC) and Overdrive (Xbox One, Series X/S) are no-frills gaming wheels that don’t compromise quality. Made from high-end materials, they’re comparable to the most expensive sim controllers. Their included pedalboard, while basic, can handle even the roughest of racing sessions.

If you’re looking to get your feet wet in sim racing and want a gaming wheel that’ll last, then these Hori offerings are the ideal starter purchase.

Pros

● High-end build quality ensures they’ll stand the test of time

● Basic feature set makes for an ideal entry point for beginner sim racers

● Stunning design that gives the feel of a premium sim controller

Cons

● Lack of force feedback means less immersion

● Turning rotation is only 270 degrees

● No clutch pedal means you’ll need to buy a separate accessory when you’re past the beginner stage

Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider/488 GTB ($188)

Thrustmaster is known for making some of the best gaming wheels on the market. While the Ferrari 458 (Xbox One, Series X/S) and 488 (PS4/PS5, PC) feel less sturdy than the Hori wheels, they’re still solid, affordable options. Like most budget wheels, they’re on the basic side of the feature spectrum, with a 2-pedal board and minimum required buttons. Their Ferrari branding and overall design, however, make them absolute stunners.

Pick these up if you’re new to simulator racing games but want something with a bit more flair.

Pros

● No-frills feature set means this is a good option for beginner racing gamers

● Beautifully designed gaming wheel for the fans of high-end cars

● Solid mounting clamp that’ll keep the wheel secure to your desk

Cons

● Not the best build quality on this list

● No clutch pedal means you’ll need to hunt for an extra accessory when you step up your game

● Turn rotation is the worst on this list at 240 degrees

Thrustmaster T150/TMX Force Feedback ($388)

We’re stepping it up in price with this next Thrustmaster offering. At nearly $390, the T150 (PS4, PC) and TMX (Xbox One, PC) are not as budget as the rest of this list. However, they’re excellent beginner options with enough features to carry you over to the intermediate level. For an extra $20, you can pick up the Pro version that includes a clutch pedal.

If you’re a new sim racer who doesn’t want to buy a new controller when your skills have grown, then these are the gaming wheels for you.

Pros

● Turn rotation is 900 degrees, providing maximum control

● Stepping up to Pro edition is good value with the included clutch pedal

● Force feedback is solid and immersive

● Solid build quality made of steel and plastic

Cons

● Highest price on this list skirts the “affordable” line

● A bit lightweight, which may not suit rougher sim sessions

Which is the Best Affordable Gaming Wheel?

All three of the options on this list will serve you well as a budding sim racing enthusiast. Your choice will ultimately boil down to what you value the most in a gaming wheel. If you expect to be getting stuck into the hobby, then the T150/TMX Pro version will give you the best bang for your buck in the long term. If you’re not quite sure the genre is for you, or you just want to cruise through some chill sims casually, then either of the other options will give you less budget guilt.

More and more people are following their doctor’s advice to improve their overall health and becoming more active. While not all doctors can agree on what activities are best for everyone, they do all agree that something is better. For those choosing to add some weight training to their daily activities, there are so many options to choose from. For some, going to the gym three times a week works, for some who cannot afford the luxury. Lifting weights at home is the best choice for them. When it comes to the best all-around voice for home weight training, the dumbbell is the most versatile. Unfortunately, not all people have the money or room in their home or apartment for a full set of dumbbells. The solution for them is a set of adjustable dumbbells.  

Introduction

Let’s start off by explaining what exactly is meant by adjustable dumbbells. This piece of workout equipment is a relatively new innovation from several equipment manufactures. The concept is designed to make it easy for anyone to select the weight that they want to use for a specific exercise. Then move to another exercise without having to grab another dumbbell. With a simple twist of a knob, you can add weight or remove weight and then continue on with your workout.

All of the weight plates are fully contained within the body of the dumbbell and when they are removed they remain within the system thanks to a specialized holder. This holder is a key part of the system and it takes up far less space in your home gym than even the smallest dumbbell set.

Pros of adjustable dumbbells

● Quickly switch between a wide range of weights depending on the set you purchase

● The compact design takes up far less space in your home or apartment

● Very easy to operate with just a single twist

● High-quality materials and construction

Cons of adjustable dumbbells

● A set of adjustable dumbbells will set you back a pretty penny

● You will need to invest in a pair of weight lift gloves to protect your hands

Who would benefit the most from them?

This is a very good question and the answer is fairly easy to figure out:

The person with a home gym– With the high cost of a gym membership continue to skyrocket, people began dedicating a room or using a basement or garage for a home gym. An adjustable dumbbell set would fit in perfectly.

The person with limited space– If you are like so many people who live in an apartment or small house who cannot really dedicate a whole room or even the garage to be used as a home gym. A compact, adjustable dumbbell set can easily be placed on a bed or put in the closet.

The person with limited resources– Lastly, if a person is limited on funds and cannot afford to buy a complete set of dumbbells. An adjustable set of dumbbells makes it easier to switch between weights and they are cheaper than a full set of comparable weights.

Fox Sports/Kayo have retained the MotoGP broadcast rights in Australia for another few seasons during a press release early yesterday, but this time it’s under an exclusive deal through free and paid content.

That marks the end of Network Ten’s relationship with the sport as their Free to Air partner after 24 years when they first acquired the rights from the Nine Network back in 1997 & will still air eight Premier Class events left (Live) on 10Bold until the end of 2021.

Although there is a possibility that Network 10 could still the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix as part of the government’s anti-siponing laws that must be available for Free, but they will need to deal with Fox Sports/Kayo first rather than Dorna Sports, the sports’ commercial rights holder.

As it stands, Network 10 will only have one motorsports product after this year which is the Formula 1 with every round as highlights & one live race at home (not happening this year due to COVID).

Now these rights are also up for renewal at the end of 2022 in conjunction with Fox Sports/Kayo with no comment made at this stage but they have recently changed their sports strategy after the exclusive acquisition of Australian Soccer that will be available on their own Paramount + subscription for the majority as well as a game every week on 10.

So it’s probably unlikely from my assumption that 10 will just keep airing MotoGP as a one-off event at home alongside a shared paid TV partner, the same goes for Nine who launched Stan Sport as their paid OTT service earlier this year which leaves either Seven or SBS as the frontrunners for the annual Australian GP package.

It’s been great seeing Daryl Beattie provide his take on MotoGP for many years after he finished his professional riding career as well as the late Barry Sheene beforehand, plus there’s a couple of hosts to thank ranging from Bill Woods, Greg Rust, Mark Howard & at present until the end of this year both Sam Charlwood & Scott Mackinnon.

We will miss their contribution to MotoGP after the loss of Supercars & RPM at the end of last year with Formula 1 set to follow if not renewed, but there’s a bright future on 10 Sport when it comes to the Melbourne Cup, Soccer & potentially other products that can provide exclusivity on its own paid/free services.
