Model cricketers bowl maidens over

Perhaps England’s cricketers would have a better chance of clinching those major test series if they spent more time in the practice nets and less time getting their kit off.

While their Ashes team mates were busy sweating blood down under, England One Day International squad members Andy Flintoff and Dougie Brown were parading half naked on The Clothes Show Live catwalk, shamelessly flaunting their abs for all and sundry.

All in the name of a good cause though. The budding models were obliging their squad sponsors Vodafone in helping the British Heart Foundation to collect items of nearly new clothing.

So next time you are bargain hunting in one of the charity’s shops, you’ll know who donated those white trousers with the dodgy grass stain.
