Ashley Giles happy to return ‘home’ to Warwickshire after Lancashire spell

• Former England spinner lived out of a suitcase
• He is reunited with Jim Troughton and Ian Bell

When Ashley Giles told his family on Christmas Day that he had one final present to share with them – namely that his return to Warwickshire had been finalised the day before and, after two years living out of a suitcase at Lancashire, he was coming home full-time – the reaction was not entirely one of universal excitement.

While his wife, Stine, and 16-year-old son, Anders, were delighted, his daughter Mathilde, 14, let out a small sigh: she thought he was about to tell them they were getting a dog. That one minor disappointment aside, it is fair to say the return of Giles to the club where he made his name first as a player and then head coach has gone down well in the West Midlands.

Andrew Flintoff unlikely to play for Lancashire this season – Ashley Giles

• Head coach has not heard from 37-year-old former England captain
• Giles: ‘if I was hedging my bets I would say no, he won’t play a role’
• Flintoff calls on country to lay off England Test captain Cook

Andrew Flintoff is unlikely to play for Lancashire this season, according to the county’s head coach, Ashley Giles.

England Ashes heroes among cricketers facing large bills for tax avoidance schemes

David Gower and several members of 2005 winning side could face ‘substantial’ losses as HMRC seeks repayment for film investments
• Footballers face penury over tax demands

Several legendary English cricketers, including key members of the 2005 Ashes winning team, are facing “very substantial” bills for payment of tax as a result of their involvement in film investments, the Guardian has learned. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs has sent demands to investors, including the former cricketers, in partnerships set up by the company Ingenious Media, which HMRC is challenging in the upper tax tribunal, claiming they constituted tax avoidance schemes.

The cricketers who invested in these partnerships, which have been subject to HMRC “accelerated payment notices” for the disputed tax breaks, include Michael Vaughan, the captain of England from 2003-08 – including during the 2005 Ashes. Vaughan was an investor in three partnerships HMRC is challenging: Ingenious Film Partners 2, Inside Track Productions and Ingenious Film Partners. With some of his England team-mates at the time, Vaughan signed up for the schemes during the peak of their careers, apparently as part of planning for a financial future when their playing days were over.
