TAB BIG BETS: JAPANESE import Admire Rakti has drawn perfectly for Tuesday’s Group 1 Melbourne Cup at Flemington.

    VETERAN batsman Younis Khan swatted Michael Clarke’s men on a road to nowhere as Pakistan set up a drought-breaking series triumph in Abu Dhabi.

    I GUESS I’m a fringe Derby Day player this year. But it’s Derby Day, and just being a player is a big deal, when all the jocks have their game faces on.

    Women in Cricket Test Breakfast

    Michael VaughanFormer England captain Michael Vaughan will address the Women in Cricket Test Breakfast in the Members Dining Room on Friday December 27.

    Vaughan holds the record for the most wins by an England Test captain, leading his country to 26 victories from 51 matches.

    His crowning achievement as captain, of course, was regaining the Ashes during that memorable series in the UK in 2005.

    He was also pretty handy with the blade, scoring 5719 runs at 41.44 from 82 Tests – including three centuries during the 2002/03 Ashes series in Australia.

    Hosted by Angela Pippos, the breakfast package includes a reserved seat on Level 2 of the Members Reserve to watch the cricket.

    Members are welcome to bring up to two guests (of either gender) but will need to ensure they pre-purchase visitor tickets to admit guests into the Reserve.
