Chris Martin Plays Some Cricket

Coldplay star Chris Martin had a different kind of rush of blood to the head – when his cricket team was thrashed.

The rocker took a break from his world tour to turn out for dad Anthony's team at the weekend.

The keen fast bowler, who developed his skills at public school at Sherbourne, Dorset, put his all into trying to dismiss the opposition at the Countess Wear Cricket Club.

But Martin, 27 – whose latest album A Rush Of Blood To The Head has been a huge hit – saw his team beaten by more than 100 runs in the match at Winslade Park, Exeter.

Martin's Oscar-winning lover Gwyneth Paltrow was thought to have been in the crowd for the club's 50th anniversary match on the private estate. But she was believed to have taken shelter under a sun hat and parasol with other spectators, including Martin's brothers Richard and Alex.

The stars are said to be planning to marry – possibly at Martin's parents' mansion near Exeter.
