كان هناك نقطة في اختبار الرابع بين الهند وانجلترا عندما كان يستضيف أشواط 30 عاما ونيفا وراء خصومهم يكت ثلاثة فقط المتبقية. كان عليه على الرغم من الفجر الكاذب وكولي بارع ورائع جايانت ياداف (إلا في الاختبار الثالث له) combined to take the match and with it any hopes… اقرأ أكثر "

During a week in which the world saw a new President elected Commander-in-Chief in America and British Prime Minster Theresa May visited India, ربما يكون عرضة تتم مقارنة الاختبار الأول لمكائد السياسية العالمية. The saying goes that a week is a long time in politics – and the saying would appear apt… اقرأ أكثر "
So the Ashes are now at end with England the victors and Australia put back in their place. A 3–2 scoreline flatters the green baggied ones a little but in truth the last test was a dead rubber for England. They were never going to play to the same level on intensity as when they… اقرأ أكثر "
أحسنت اليستير كوك. حسنا, so he missed out on making a century, مجرد, ولكن ليسجل 95 when the chips were really down took unbelievable character. The only way he was going to silence the critics was with some runs and hopefully today’s score marks a permanent return to form. The crowd’s reaction when… اقرأ أكثر "
اختبارين في, 1–0 to India. England’s poor summer continued apace today with a shocking (معذرة, مروع) collapse after lunch today to hand the visitors the initiative going forward into the rest of the series. On current evidence it would be hard to see past India winning the series.

لماذا أنا على وشك أن أقول قد أكون ببطلانه من فوق ... ولكن أنا سعيد أن هذه السلسلة الرماد وصلت الى نهايتها. Quite simply Australia have played far better than the sum of their individual parts and England have been, بالنسبة للجزء كبير, absolutely diabolical. As sure as night follows day… اقرأ أكثر "
English winters are a terrible thing. بارد ورطب, the season also means no home cricket whatsoever. Christmas is one shining light in the fog of the cold and to add to this the thought of an annual test match that starts on Boxing Day and usually held under blue skies and warm temperatures is… اقرأ أكثر "
With a ruthless determination and a killer instinct worthy of a wolf chasing a wounded deer, Australia duly completed the rout of a demoralised England this morning. England simply haven’t turned up this series and a rejuvenated Australia have preyed on every weakness and every failing to humiliate what is still a pretty good side.… اقرأ أكثر "
