New captain takes 5-38 in blistering start to first Ashes TestCummins ‘surprised’ England left out Anderson and BroadPat Cummins basked in the afterglow of a “dream start” to his captaincy of Australia as England’s bid to regain the Ashes began with a familiar feeling of despondency at the Gabba. The hosts are being led by a fast bowler for the first time in 65 years but any concerns about saddling Cummins with the extra burden soon melted away when his first five-wicket haul in Ashes cricket blew England away for 147.

Not in looks, but just a real go getter attitude,” the “Avengers” star wrote. “He insisted on the resemblance and I assured him no one else has this look. Was great to meet you Leon good luck in the future.”View this post on InstagramA post shared by Chris Hemsworth (@chrishemsworth)The photographer who snapped the image of the Aussie brothers, Jasin Boland, joked that “Leon” was a great bloke, but he was “not sure who does the better Australian accent.”The older Hemsworth, 38, is currently in Prague filming the sequel to Extraction. He stars in the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder, which hits cinemas in July 2022.Their good-natured sibling rivalry goes way back. In 2017, Chris revealed that he nearly lost his iconic Thor role to Liam, famous for his roles in the Hunger Games series, but jumped back into the mix at the last minute.“I came in kind of with a little, I guess, motivation and maybe frustration that my little brother had gotten further than me. It’s a little family, sibling rivalry sort of kicked up in me,” he told W Magazine at the time.READ MORE:Chris Hemsworth Uses Wrong ‘Chris’ In Shady Birthday Post To Chris EvansChris Hemsworth Has Fans Howling With Son's Very Honest Admission About His Favourite SuperheroMiley Cyrus Opens Up About Liam Hemsworth Divorce: 'There Was Too Much Conflict'

Solar Ash review – ambitious sci-fi adventure leads to a boring new world
PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC; Heart Machine/ Annapurna InteractiveThis unquestionably beautiful game about saving a planet from an encroaching black hole boldly goes where few have remained awakeLife is about the journey, not the destination, the saying goes, and the speed-obsessed Solar Ash is built on that principle. Kitting the player out with invisible space roller skates, this colourful space adventure sees heroine Rei gliding across a gorgeously vibrant planet. Reminiscent of thatgamecompany’s Journey, a soothing collage of oil paintings and minimalistic comic-book design, Solar Ash’s gorgeous ruined cities and pastel-coloured plains rarely fail to stop you in your tracks. In some moments, Solar Ash is glorious, the sort of freeform, wind-in-your-hair joyride that shuts down your thoughts and delights the synapses. But the illusion shatters once you turn to an objective.Charged with saving Rei’s dying home planet from an ominous black hole, you drift and slash your way across the wheezing planet, seeking out poorly signposted tar-like anomalies and slaying the big beastie responsible for birthing them. These anomalies are obtusely hidden, and Solar Ash provides little in the way of subtle visual language to help you find them. I spent hours roaming the same areas in search of what to do next, slowly losing any lingering sense of intrigue and, eventually, my will to live. Solar Ash is all about movement, an experience that prides itself on speed and flow – but all too often, it grinds to a halt.Solar Ash is out now, £31.99 Continue reading...

Strictly Come Dancing's AJ Odudu Admits One Silver Lining To Landing In The Dance-Off
Strictly Come Dancing contestant AJ Odudu has admitted there was a bit of a silver lining that came with landing in the bottom two for the first time last week.AJ and her partner Kai Widdrington had a bit of a difficult night during Saturday’s live show, placing at the bottom of the leaderboard after a lift in their Salsa routine went awry.Because of this, the pair ended up in the dance-off with Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova, with the judges unanimously voting to send the BBC Breakfast host home.However, during an appearance on spin-off show It Takes Two, AJ revealed that one thing being in the dance-off allowed her was an opportunity to nail the lift that had previously caused her so much difficulty.“It was stressful,” AJ said of being in the bottom two. “I was nervous going into that final lift.“To be able to execute it and show everyone, ‘this is what it was meant to look like’ – I was really pleased.”Having now survived her first dance-off, AJ is one of four celebrities still in the running for the Glitterball trophy ahead of this weekend’s semi-final.She and fellow semi-finalists Rose Ayling-Ellis, John Whaite and Rhys Stephenson will all perform twice in Saturday night’s live show for the first time this series.It’s also been announced that all four of them will be taking part in the Strictly live tour next year, although quarter-finalist Dan Walker has revealed why he turned down the offer to join them.Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7.05pm on BBC One, while It Takes Two airs weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC Two. MORE STRICTLY:Dan Walker Explains Why He Won't Be Doing The Strictly Come Dancing Live TourAnton Du Beke Admits One 'Slight Disappointment' About This Year's Strictly Christmas SpecialOfcom Reaches Verdict On DJ Steve Allen's On-Air Comments About Tilly Ramsay's Weight
