0Bangladesj Krieket logoBaie geluk aan Bangladesj Engeland Spin te verslaan

Welgedaan Bangladesj op 'n eerste toets oorwinning oor Engeland. Die oorwinning is deeglik verdien en die reeks kon so maklik klaar 2-0 na die gashere eerder as die 1-1 gelykop.
Beide wedstryde is 'n uitstekende advertensies vir toetskrieket in wat hulle toets vir albei spanne met die Tigers in my gedagtes beweer 'n punte oorwinning oor die twee wedstryde. In Mehedi Hasan het hulle duidelik opgegrawe 'n jong diamant wat nog kan help om sy span te dryf om meer oorwinnings teen die top-spanne. ... Lees die volledige artikel

0Professionele Engeland af te sien tijger achtig Bangladesj

Welgedaan Engeland op 'n professionele eendagreeks oorwinning teen Bangladesj. Die Tigers dalk nie deur al gesien word as die moeilikste teenstanders en die besoekers sal beslis in die gesig staar Sterner toetse - maar enige Asiatiese opposisie op eie bodem is alles behalwe 'n plak ....

0Ring van staal Bring Skeur vir die oog

dit was, in baie maniere, gerusstellend om die militêre mag van Bangladesj en die show van krag wat hulle op voor die aanvang van die eendagreeks begin môre sien (Vrydag).

Foto's en video-knipsels beslis wys dit beteken besigheid. Ek het gehoor 'n radio-kommentator vergelyk die sekuriteit om wat jy wil sien vir 'n reis deur Barack Obama. ... Lees die volledige artikel

0Stof tot nadenke na die opening van verlies

Een toets in, Eng­land are one-nil down. Welgedaan Pakistan
Hav­ing brushed Sri Lanka aside Eng­land are in the midst of a much stern­er test against an in-form Pakistan. And the vis­it­ors suc­ceeded where many oth­ers have failed of late, d.w.z. to expose England’s weak­nesses.
Per­haps England’s main weak­ness is a lack of top qual­ity spin­ner. Moeen Ali is use­ful for a good few overs and tends to sur­prise many bats­men and trick them into a false sense of secur­ity. hy is, how­ever, a second spin­ner. As hy kon nie kolf sou hy in die span? baie onwaarskynlik. Hy is 'n back-up opsie, not lead the attack mater­i­al. How and why Eng­land have chosen to ignore Adil Rashid amazes me. Over the dec­ades Eng­lish select­ors have shown a reluct­ance to pig leg-spin­ners and Rashid is seen as sus­cept­ible of leak­ing a few runs – but he has proven in ODIs and T20s that he is able to keep it tight. Thank­fully they have at least indic­ated they are will­ing to put this right by nam­ing him in the 13 tal vir die tweede toets. They must pick him – espe­cially as Old Traf­ford tends to offer encour­age­ment to the twirlers. Eng­land have a bit of a selec­tion dilemma on their hands – I sus­pect Ben Stokes and Moeen are fight­ing it out for one place.

0TMSTMS - 'n gerusstellende teenwoordigheid in Brexiting Times

Op Donderdag 23 June Bri­tain (goed, Eng­land and Wales – the Scots are seem­ingly more sens­ible) voted to leave the European Uni­on.
As the stark real­ity of what the nation had thrust upon itself sunk in I was in a rather depressed state of mind. At work I couldn’t even stom­ach my bacon but­tie such was my frus­tra­tion with the plebis­cite.… Lees die volledige artikel

0Super Engeland Eis Super Series

With just one match left in this new “super series” format between Eng­land and Sri Lanka the home nation have proven them­selves com­pletely dom­in­ant
Win­ning the test series comes as no sur­prise – the vis­it­ors were nev­er going to be able to cope with Ander­son and Broad in home con­di­tions – but I expec­ted a stern­er test in the 50-over format.… Lees die volledige artikel

0England vs Sri Lanka — any Lessons Learned?

The third and final test in the Eng­land vs Sri Lanka test series is now at an end after the rain brought a damp squib of an end to the match.
So, wat het ons geleer? Nie 'n baie werklik. Ons is amper waar ons was drie toetse gelede. Nick Compton would appear not quite of test level is one obvi­ous con­clu­sion. Per­son­ally speak­ing I feel it would be a little harsh to jet­tis­on him – I would give him the Pakistan series to make a final decision on him. I doubt that will hap­pen, how­ever and Lords was the last we will see of him in the whites of the three lions.… Lees die volledige artikel

2Aarde krieketbal'n kant om almal tevrede te stel - die massas te vermaak, miskien?

Many say test match crick­et is lan­guish­ing in the doldrums at this moment in time. Daar is allerhande planne word gegooi om te probeer en dit afgee deur sy baadjie sterte. Such one sided demoli­tions as the Eng­land Sri Lanka series only add weight to the naysay­ers cause and the half empty (of moet dit wees vol?!) stands at Chester Le Street don’t exactly help mat­ters.
As always the answer to turn things around isn’t straight for­ward. We’re all search­ing for that sil­ver bul­let or mir­acle cure to guar­an­tee packed sta­dia but the only thing that is clear is that there is no simple answer.

0Pitch Perfect Engeland Het jy 'n Sterner Toets

So the first test of the sum­mer is at an end. Well done Eng­land for a vic­tory for what was really a match of men against boys.

Sri Lanka is, te gebruik wat dikwels voorgehou klank-byt, a team in “trans­ition” and boy did it show. Dit moet in gedagte gehou word, how­ever, that they kept a strong Eng­land bat­ting line up to a tad under the 300 mark – and half of those runs came from the excel­lent Jonny Bair­stow. Alex Hales did well too with a decent knock and must be kick­ing him­self he didn’t con­vert it into a ton. Was dit nie vir dié twee is dit dalk 'n nader hardloop ding gewees. We will nev­er know.… Lees die volledige artikel
