    Australian leg-spin great Shane Warne has told England’s new-ball duo, James Anderson and Stuart Broad, to expect plenty of "sledging", or verbal abuse, during the approaching Ashes cricket clash. Anderson has contrasted the sporting atmosphere, which prevailed during England’s recent series with New Zealand, to the "needle" that existed during the last Ashes campaign, which Australia won 5-0 on home soil in 2013-14. Anderson said he hoped the Ashes Tests between the arch-rivals could be played in the same spirit as England’s series with New Zealand.

  • Judge Masipa got it right – on the law

    Masipa cleared the athlete of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, instead finding him guilty of culpable homicide and of one firearm-related charge. This was because Masipa found that the state had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pistorius had the necessary intention to murder Steenkamp. Despite finding the athlete was a “very poor witness”, Masipa accepted that Pistorius’s version – that he genuinely believed there was an intruder in his house – could reasonably possibly be true, which is all that was necessary for an acquittal on murder. Masipa’s verdict has created a ruckus for a number of reasons, with the most common criticism relating to her application of dolus eventualis.
