Ex-England cricketer Tony Greig dies

Former England cricket captain Tony Greig has died in Sydney after suffering a heart attack, according to Australian broadcaster Nine Network.
The South Africa-born 66-year-old had been diagnosed with lung cancer two months ago, it was reported.
The all-rounder played 58 Tests for England from 1972-1977 and is described by ESPNcricinfo website as the most "complete cricketer" of that time.
He later became a popular commentator and had worked for Nine Network.
The broadcaster reported that Greig died at about 13:45 local time on Saturday, after being rushed from his home to Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital earlier in the day.
He is quoted as having told Channel Nine colleagues last month: "It's not good. The truth is I've got lung cancer. Now it's a case of what they can do."
He underwent an operation later in November.
On Christmas Day, he tweeted: "Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you all. Would love to be at Test but son Tom and I will be tuned in?"

Sangakkara joins elite club of batsmen with 10,000 runs in Tests

Kumar Sangakkara has become the 11th cricketer and the second Sri Lankan batsman after Mahela Jayawardene to reach the 10,000-run mark.Test cricket in Melbourne on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old, who needed just 40 runs to reach the landmark before the start of the Test, brought up the milestone with a beautiful cover drive boundary off Mitchell Johnson and got a standing ovation from a bumper crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Sangakkara stood out for the tourists with his polished 58 dwarfing the contributions of his teammates in a woeful below-par first innings of 156 off just 43.4 overs after winning the toss in the Boxing Day Test.
Sangakkara's 195-minute knock was brought to an end with a stunning running catch by wicketkeeper Matthew Wade at eight wickets down.
In the process Sangakkara was the equal-fastest to the 10,000 milestone, reaching it in his 195th Test innings, the same as Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara.

Sangakkara unfurled a glorious cover drive boundary off Johnson in the final over before lunch to bring up the milestone in his 115th Test match.
But the elegant left-hander was out to a magnificent running catch behind the wicket by wicketkeeper Wade, who scampered 30 metres before flinging himself to take a diving catch and deliver Johnson his 200th wicket in his 49th Test.
Sangakkara is level on top with Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar on the list of batsmen to reach the mark in the fewest innings. Sanga crossed the mark in 115 matches, four more than Lara, who did so in 111 matches. 
He also has the second-best average (55.96) among cricketers to cross the landmark, only behind South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis, who averages 56.92.
Voted Cricketer of the Year by the International Cricket Council in September, he has hit 30 centuries during his Test career. 
Interestingly, Sangakkara had in February this year also become the tenth man to enter the elite club of men with 10,000 runs in ODI cricket when he reached the personal score of 11 against Australia at Adelaide.

Is Shahrukh Khan having an affair with Priyanka Chopra?

After being loyal to his wife for 20 years, Shahrukh Khan is reportedly seeing his Don 2 co-star Priyanka Chopra and they are quite an item

Shahrukh Khan has always maintained a very ‘loyal to my wife’ image in tinseltown, even as he romanced so many beauties on the big screen. Seeing pictures of Gauri and SRK in film and fashion magazines only added to the aura of their ‘sacred’ marital relationship. The only leading ladies he was rumoured to have had a ‘thing’ with are his fave co-stars Juhi Chawla and Kajol. The gossip seemed obvious, since he had some of the most successful films of his career with them. Apart from that, it was Deepa Sahi in Maya Memsaab whom he got intimate with in order to show great chemistry in that famous sex scene. Otherwise, King Khan’s image has been the cleanest amongst the Khans, especially where extra-marital goings-on have been in focus. But it seems that now, after fathering two lovely kids and doting on Gauri for a couple of decades, Shahrukh is going through a mid-life crisis. (Or a mid-wife crisis, shall we say?) These days, showbiz parties and gatherings are not complete without people talking about the torrid affair SRK is allegedly having with his Don 2 co-star, hottie Priyanka Chopra.
It’s been more than six months that the ‘thing’ has been on, they say. Sharing spicy bits, the rumourmongers tell us that it was at one of SRK’s private dos that Gauri had a spat with hubby dearest over inviting Priyanka. Gauri was backed by Twinkle Khanna, and understandably so – remember the Akshay Kumar-Priyanka affair (during Aitraaz) that had serious implications? Hmm, looks like Tina knows only too well the love games that PC is capable of playing! And so she has warned Gauri. SRK meanwhile is simply saying he is fond of Priyanka, gushing about her good looks and her ‘talent’ – and insisting that there is nothing more to it. He has never denied his fondness for Kajol and Juhi as well, with the latter being his business partner in film production and the Indian Premier League. But Priyanka seems special, as is evident from the way he hugs her or interacts with her, or pays surprise visits to her house. He recently said in a newspaper interview that she is his “tame rat” and how he loved getting “kinky” with her in a scene in Don 2. Well, well, so much for a 46-year-old man’s fantasies! But these wet dreams might just die down after Don 2 releases. But here’s more dope: SRK-Priyanka shall soon be hosting the Zee Cine Awards in Macau in January 2012. Before that, they will head to the Dubai International Film Festival in December – a couple of weeks from now. The question is, will Gauri accompany SRK at these events? She was seen alone at Boman Irani’s son’s reception recently, which makes us wonder if things are fine between the couple. Tell us what you think: Are Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra an item?
