On a crowded wall of the family home in which Renzo and Robyn Vettori raised their children, there is a newspaper front page from February 1997 announcing the selection for a Test against England of their son, with the screaming headline "But he's only 18!" A few of New Zealand's smarter hacks may have felt inclined to reprise that headline when Daniel Vettori last week announced that, for now, at least, he is quitting Twenty20 and one-day cricket: "But he's only 32!" I prefer to look at it another way. Vettori's decision to forgo the lucre and glitz of the shorter forms of the game is a rare and huge victory for left-arm spin, for Test cricket and for the reputation of the greatest cricketer New Zealand has ever produced.

Sathya Sai Baba: Guru and philanthropist who was revered by millions but whose career was dogged by controversy
Thursday 28 April 2011
With 1,200 ashrams in more than 100 countries, the Indian guru Sathya Sai Baba was seen as a reincarnation of god by his devotees, who included prime ministers and presidents of India, business magnates, film stars, artists and world-class sportsmen and sportswomen, who all gave generously to his social welfare projects. Sachin Tendulkar, for one, always keeps a picture of Sai Baba in with his cricket kit. So upset was he by Sai Baba's death that he refused to celebrate his 38th birthday, which fell on the same day, shutting himself inside his hotel room in Hyderabad, where he was playing an Indian Premier League match in the evening.
