Jacques Rudolph hit a century to put County Championship First Division leaders Somerset on the back foot against Yorkshire at Taunton. The former South Africa Test batsman was the star of the opening day with an innings of 155 before he became one of three victims for spinner Ian Blackwell.

Books: I am reading Marley Legend: An Illustrated Life of Bob Marley by James Henke. It is about the early years when he was trying to make a band, and includes interviews with Marley's family. I am also reading Slave: My True Story, about the Sudanese girl Mende Nazer's lost childhood after she was sold into slavery, until she managed to escape in 2000. I have been reading a few books about child soldiers. I just finished writing about my own experience, so I didn't want my book to sound similar. Somebody gave me Roddy Doyle's Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha. It follows the story of a 10-year-old Irish boy and is written in a way that copies the way a boy would speak.
Nottinghamshire 188 Durham 189-9 <i>(Durham win by one wkt)</i>: Patel heroics in vain as Durham squeeze home
Thursday 05 June 2008
Samit Patel advertised his potential as a destructive batsman of high quality and a competent left-arm spinner with a magnificent century followed by three wickets here yesterday. But his efforts were not enough to prevent Durham, the holders, moving to within one match of another final in the Friends Provident Trophy, much as they almost threw it all away in an extraordinary finish.

A hat-trick from Steve Harmison helped Durham claim a seven-wicket victory over Sussex, who slipped to their first County Championship First Division defeat of the season.
Sussex 214 & 15-2 Durham 301 <i>(Durham lead by 72 runs)</i>: Benkenstein and Smith give Sussex a headache
Sunday 01 June 2008
In mid-afternoon yesterday Durham lost their sixth wicket with the score on 235. There was immediately some speculation about whether they had compiled one of the lowest totals of all time to include a double-century partnership, a discussion which gathered momentum at 267 for 9.

Would you want to survive the apocalypse? Isn't life hard enough already? From Soylent Green through to Waterworld, the worst part of the apocalypse is surviving it. Where would you propose to buy your dental floss after armageddon? Who'd have time to worry about personal hygiene with zombies on the loose? This (the zombie part) is the dilemma that confronts Will Smith in I Am Legend. He copes better than most would, but still, post-apocalyptic life is bleak.
