    Not sure England are entirely deserving of a guard of honour at the moment, but that's apparently what this water truck at Alice Springs airport was trying to deliver... it was aimed away from the tour party, by the way...

  • [cricket]JONATHAN TROTT
    Former England captain Michael Vaughan on Trott leaving the Ashes Tour:
    It's the right thing for him, I wish him well. I hope he gets back but he's got to take his time. There's no point rushing, he's got to take as long as it takes. He's got to get himself right. I guess if you're just thinking about one thing, all your life, and then you have a bad period as well, within that, it can build up even more. Marcus Trescothick speaks about how he realised he needed other things in his life away from cricket.
