arena the golden girls

ELIZABETH TAYLOR Perhaps most-recognised for her eight marriages and vivacious personality, the Oscar-winner was in fact one of the most influential actresses and humanitarians of the ’50s and ’60s, and, an icon of classical Hollywood across the world. She brought Cleopatra to life in 1963, and went on to play colourful, memorable characters in over 50 films, closely mirroring her come-what-may mantra in real life. BRIGITTE BARDOT The French bombshell, who is best known as one of the most liberated women and sex symbols of the ’60s, has had several promising careers as an actress, singer, dancer, model and most recently, as an animal rights activist. Her influence in pop culture is well-established: the infamous hairstyle; popularising the Bardot neckline in fashion; making bikinis acceptable worldwide; being the subject of John Lennon and…

the bartender’s new face

As with famous people, in real life the American Bar in the Savoy is smaller than you might expect. London’s oldest surviving cocktail bar—so named because it serves “American-style” mixed drinks—is a peculiar shape, curved like a pill capsule that has been pinched in the middle. Its decor is art deco futurism; the armchairs are low and the cushions are velvet. The bar itself has just four stools. The host attends to the four seated patrons, while the “dispenser” mixes up to 1,000 drinks a night. “It’s so old,” says senior bartender Pippa Guy. “It’s not like a purpose-built new bar. But it is how it is; you have to work around it.” Other things about the American Bar are equally antiquated and unyielding. The establishment currently employs four senior bartenders.…

ipl 2018: the spectacle, the action & how to watch it

It may be the first time in the history of the Indian Premier League that another country has dominated headlines in the lead-up to the T20 competition. The consequences of the ball-tampering controversy in the recently-concluded Test series between South Africa and Australia were far-reaching, with year-long bans handed out to Australia’s captain-vice-captain duo for their part in the event. A year that was set to be dominated by stories of the return of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals after serving their respective bans due to spot-fixing related charges, Steven Smith and David Warner appear to have bitten away a considerable chunk of it. The auctions preceding the tournament were an apt precursor to the event, with most franchises choosing to rejig their combinations after playing with settled teams in…

players to watch out for

JOFRA ARCHER Rajasthan Royals Rajasthan Royals shelled out big money ($1.125 million) to secure the services of West Indian Jofra Archer, who has been plying his trade for Sussex in English county cricket since 2016. His maiden season for Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League showed glimpses of his abundant talent, which included stunning catches and consistently clocking high speeds with the ball. Archer played for West Indies in the 2013 Under-19 World Cup, but seems set to turn out for his adopted country England in the near future. KAMLESH NAGARKOTI Kolkata Knight Riders India’s latest fast-bowling sensation will still be 18 years old when he turns out for Kolkata Knight Riders, after leading the Under-19 team to victory in the World Cup. The Barmer-born teenager hasn’t played first-class cricket yet, but clocks over…
