Former England captain Michael Vaughan said Steve Smith is just as incredible as Virat Kohli after the Australian captain once again bailed his side out of a spot in the Ashes.Smith had scored a polished 141 not out last month to script Australia’s opening victory over England in Brisbane. On Friday, Australia had lost David Warner and Cameron Bancroft early in response to England’s 403 in the first innings before Smith stepped in again to steer Australia to safety at 202/3 at stumps on the second day.Smith was unbeaten on 92 overnight and is just eight short of his 22nd hundred in only his 59th Test. The 28-year-old Australian captain is often compared with Kohli, his Indian counterpart.Like Smith, Kohli also likes leading by example and finished 2017 with 2818 international runs including 1059 in 10 Tests.Just having a glass of vino I have decided Steve Smith has joined @imVkohli in the Freak Category … an incredible player … #Justsaying #Ashes- Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) December 15, 2017In the course of a dominant year for India, Kohli also went past Ricky Ponting and is now second in the list of century scorers in ODIs. The Delhi dasher has 32 hundreds and many experts feel he would be able to get close to Sachin Tendulkar’s 49 tons in the format.Kohli now has the most double centuries as a Test captain (6). He joined Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag at the top of the list for most double centuries by an Indian in Test cricket. Smith, currently, has 980 runs from 10 Tests including four hundreds. During the 2014-15 series between India and Australia, both Smith and Kohli were the leading run-scorers for their teams.advertisementKohli, earlier this year, expressed his anger when Smith tried to seek external help from the dressing room over a DRS. Things got heated in the middle and in the post-match press conference during the Bengaluru Test following the incident.
After dropping Jonah off at home, Mr. Tuttle exchanged goodnight texts with him – and that was the last anyone would ever hear from the young performer.It was only on Tuesday, the day after dark day, that anyone grew seriously concerned about unanswered texts to Jonah’s phone. Members of the Shaw ensemble started trying to contact the actor after he uncharacteristically missed a rehearsal that afternoon. Then, he didn’t show up for the call for his evening performance of the musical on the main stage at the festival: Me and My Girl.Later that evening, Mr. Tuttle was home with his family when his boss reached him to tell him that his partner had been found. “She had to tell me three times what had happened, because I didn’t believe her. I didn’t want it to be true.” Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Advertisement Actors don’t get weekends. Instead, theatre companies tend to have one day a week when no performances are scheduled, traditionally called the “dark day.”At the Shaw Festival, the eclectic repertory theatre company now in its 56th season in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., Monday is dark day – and it was on just such a Monday this summer that something dark took a popular, outgoing 22-year-old actor named Jonah McIntosh.The previous day, Sunday, July 9, Jonah and his partner, Marcus Tuttle, social-media manager at the Shaw, had taken advantage of rare, overlapping time off to go on a hike around the Niagara Escarpment. Then, they saw the new Spider-Man movie – which Jonah, a Marvel fan, pronounced his favourite version to date – had dinner and drove home listening to songs from the Broadway musical Hamilton, singing and dancing along in their seats.
