Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins have helped clean up Pakistan for 240 after Australia’s bowlers rebounded from their toughest-ever start to a Gabba Test. Cummins finished with figures of 3-60 in his first home Test since claiming the mantle of the world’s best bowler. Starc had 4-52 and went within a whisker of a hat-trick, before claiming the final wicket on what proved to be the final ball of the opening day. It came after Pakistan cruised to 75-0 to begin the Test summer, before Cummins kick-started a collapse of 3-4 on Thursday afternoon. With openers Azhar Ali and Shan Masood the first tourists to bat through the opening session of a Test at the Gabba without loss, Cummins turned the game with Shan’s dismissal. Just two balls after Cummins took the opener’s edge for 27, Josh Hazlewood followed suit by nicking off Azhar for 39. Hazlewood (2-46) also had Babar Azam caught in the same manner, with the Pakistan star out driving hard at a … [Read more...] about Australian pacemen keep Pakistan in check on opening day of Gabba Test

Those under the age of 70 were most likely spared the worst of 1950s food trends - but they were truly questionable if these stomach-churning vintage adverts are anything to go by. It appears some rather horrendous recipes were inflicted on suburban dinner party guests around the world, according to an online gallery collated by Bored Panda . Serving then-exotic fruits such as pineapple and bananas with meat and fish appears to have been particularly popular, as was turning celery into 'dessert logs'. Here, FEMAIL selects the most bizarre dishes on the menu... The frozen cheese salad diet? Those on a Weight Watchers meal plan in the US might have feasted on this decades ago - but we can't see ourselves enjoying it anytime soon What the fudge?

The converted warehouse in the inner west of Adelaide has none of the glitz and glamour you would expect of one of Australia’s most successful circus companies. As Gravity and Other Myths (Gom, to the artists) rehearse their new production, industrial air-conditioning whirls to override summer outside. An inopportune metal pole is shielded by a pool noodle. An artist climbs a ladder to re-tape plastic sheeting against a window to keep the room dark. On the mats, eight acrobats experiment with new skills. Often, they fall. “What do you call that one?” yells director Darcy Grant. “Sketchy?” comes the response. They try, and try again, until: “Beautiful!” This isn’t a slick operation. It is fresh and scrappy. Out of Chaos will be the company’s second work to premiere at the Adelaide festival. As it is in rehearsal the company is also in New York with A Simple Space. When that show premiered in 2013, it was performed in an abandoned … [Read more...] about ‘Unadorned, gritty, unpretentious’: how Australian circus went global
