0Politieke Machina Ties Series begin met 'n knal

Tydens 'n week waarin die wêreld het 'n nuwe president verkies Commander-in-Chief in Amerika en die Britse Eerste Minister Theresa Mei besoek Indië, dit is dalk gepas die eerste toets is in vergelyking met die globale politieke gekonkel.
Die gesegde lui dat 'n week is 'n lang tyd in die politiek - en die woord sal ook bekwaam in krieket verskyn.
Slegs 'n paar dae gelede baie naysayers (myself ingesluit) were fear­ing the hosts could inflict a series white­wash on the vis­it­ors — espe­cially if the top order in par­tic­u­lar didn’t apply them­selves bet­ter.

nou, bloot vyf dae later en lyk alles goed met die wêreld. Cer­tainly Eng­land showed a lot of char­ac­ter to come away with a points vic­tory (the score­sheet will read draw). A subtle change can make the world of dif­fer­ence and the intro­duc­tion of the lad Haseeb Hameed as open­er was a pos­it­ive if not much needed step. And he cer­tainly took his chance, excel­ling in the open­ing birth. A lot has already been writ­ten about the 19-year-old’s suit­ab­il­ity for the longer ver­sion of the game – fin­gers crossed he lives up to the hype and Eng­land have finally found a part­ner worthy to sit along­side Alastair Cook.
Good to see Rashid get in the wick­ets. He didn’t quite fin­ish India off but the fin­ish­ing line was at least in sight. Hope­fully Eng­land can main­tain this momentum into the series although at some stage they will face a dust-bowl which turns square – how they handle that remains to be seen.

Streuth mate – or some­thing along those lines – what is hap­pen­ing to our Aus­trali­an cous­ins – fresh from a thump­ing in the first test against South Africa now they find them­selves bowled out for 85. So 'n jammerte.
