A report by Loughborough University researchers that teaching cricket in state schools improves children's behaviour, spreading chivalrous and "gentlemanly" behaviour over one and all, raises possibilities. Deprived state schools, after all, are not the only arenas in which problematic behaviour – the type the researchers link to football – rears its ugly head. Many of us encounter barging, loud, testosterone-loaded, winner-takes-all behaviour – what we will refer to as "football" values – on buses, at Tube and railway stations and checkouts. Can we realistically import some cricketing spirit into these virtual war zones?

If Surrey reached a nadir when they were bowled out for 130 by Kent last week, maybe it was the jolt they needed. In the wake of their lowest total at the Oval in almost nine years, they yesterday became the first to score 400 on this ground this season and then dismissed the home side for little more than half that total, giving the match between top and bottom in the First Division an altogether upside-down look.

Denis Cosgrove was widely viewed as the pre-eminent cultural and historical geographer of his generation. He was a polymath reminiscent of the Renaissance humanists he admired, and his innovative and sparkling studies immeasurably deepened understanding of how changing Western perceptions have viewed, interpreted and transformed the world around them. His gifted teaching and dedicated supervision, no less than his dozen books and scores of essays, inspired colleagues and students throughout the humanities and the natural and social sciences, well beyond his chosen discipline. Indeed, interdisciplinarity was for him an article of faith.

Yorkshire 350 & 301-8 dec v Hampshire 248 & 46-0: Vaughan back in the runs to keep Warne in check
Saturday 03 June 2006
To a nation pre-occupied for a month with the Rooney toe and the Vaughan knee, the news of the latter is that it withstood an innings of 135 minutes while the England captain scored 56 runs on a third-day pitch against some hostile bowlers who included Shane Warne. His four boundaries, two of them clips through the slip area, were neatly and crisply executed.
