    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.

    DAVID Villa was starting to recapture his best form at Melbourne City, what a shame he’s going back to New York, Herald Sun’s David Davutovic writes.

    THE stamina reserves of Hampton Court and Sweet Idea have been debated all week but were summarily dismissed by trainer Gai Waterhouse on Friday.

    The Official XXIX Club Song

    XXIX Club founding member Ian 'Doc' McDonald (left) with XXIX Club song author Doug ReidThere is a tavern at the ground, at the ground,
    Where XXIXers sit around, sit around,
    ‘Mid pints of beer and camaraderie,
    And talk about the MCC.

    Happy hours of reminiscing,
    Not a single stroke is missing,
    As the runs and wickets tumble from their memory,

    Good friends, the game will live for aye, live for aye,
    As long as XXIXers play, IXers play:
    So lift your glass and drink with throttle free,
    To Cricket and the MCC.

    Doug Reid – 1962
