Performance of the day Ajmal Shahzad has made a low-key start to life as a Nottinghamshire bowler following his fall-out with Yorkshire and a move to Lancashire that was curtailed, in effect, when the Red Rose county were relegated. Trent Bridge may be a helpful ground for bowlers but those new to it must first learn how to make it work for them and Shahzad is still getting to grips with his new surroundings. In the sea air at Hove yesterday, he first turned an overnight 35 not out into a maiden half-century for Nottinghamshire. Then he found conditions to his liking with the ball and delivered his best performance so far for his new county, bowling Chris Nash off a bottom edge, cartwheeling Mike Yardy's off stump and finding the edge to have Rory Hamilton-Brown caught at first slip.

When revisiting the life of someone as famous as Stanley Matthews, it helps to unearth a hitherto unknown, headline-making fact, as Jon Henderson has done in revealing that The Wizard of Dribble's beloved second wife, Mila, had been a secret agent for the Communist Czech regime in the Fifties and Sixties. But it would be a shame if this diverted attention from the author's masterly crafting of the real meat of the book, Matthews's extraordinary football career and how it was shaped by his complex, often crabby personality.
