0Die as urn2019 Ashes

so, met die Wêreldbeker-kriekettoernooi amper verby, dit is tyd om te dink oor die belangrikste gebeurtenis van die krieketwêreld somer begin: die Ashes! In die laaste paaiement is Engeland weer sag geslaan down under, maar hulle het nie verlore by die huis vir 18 jaar. Op papier beide kante het 'n paar top-spelers, sodat dit lyk soos dit kan wees die naaste reeks sedert 2005. Om te verseker dat hulle bo uit te kom Engeland sal moet 'n paar groot probleme by die top van hul bestelling sorteer.

Dit is weer daardie tyd - die nagte is lank, die lug is koud, maar gou die radio sal brand in die lewe en bring die klanke van die Australiese somer in ons ore. Sal Engeland terug te kom uit die vorige kalk met 'n oorwinning (as wat hulle gedoen het in 2010-11, of sal Australië voltooi 'n 3ST afwit in 4 reeks. Ek vir een is weddery dit sal nie 'n trekking wees!

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

2Die as urnGeen ster skyn helder vir beide kante

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 were try­ing to claim the little urn back from our Anti­podean cous­ins.

0Hoe om 'n probleem soos Engeland te bestuur

In a way I am almost glad Eng­land failed to grind out a draw against Sri Lanka. Had they done so it would have been seen by many as some sort of mira­cu­lous escape. Rug teen die muur, sto­ic defence when the chips were down. Dit moet nie, how­ever, detract from a dire per­form­ance. For the ump­teenth time the bats­men have let us down. The last Ashes on Eng­lish soil were won des­pite, not because of our bats­men and the over­all pic­ture hasn’t improved since then.… Lees die volledige artikel

0Sachithra Sen was 'n Mankades (Probeer gesê dat na 'n paar biere!)

Crick­et is a sport in which most fol­low­ers expect their her­oes to adhere to a high­er stand­ard of fair play and sports­man­ship.
The recent incid­ent of ‘Mankad­ing’ (wat op die aarde geskep dat frase?) – when Sri Lanka’s Sachi­thra Sen­anayake ran out England’s Jos But­tler who had strayed out of his crease at the non-striker’s end at a key point in the final and decid­ing ODI in the series was dis­ap­point­ing to see and thank­fully remains very rare.
The last incid­ent I can remem­ber is when Kapil Dev ran out South Africa’s Peter Kirsten, appar­ently without warn­ing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v = RzbFy_elb8k
Dif­fer­ing accounts of Tuesday’s shambles say Sen­anayake warned But­tler twice or just the once. Hoe dit ook al, it wasn’t crick­et. The bowl­er shouldn’t have done it and the cap­tain should have over-ruled the appeal. Hy het nie, Dit het gebeur sodat ons links na die koste van 'n stam reken op die spel.
Wat ek nie hou nie, how­ever, is Eng­land using this unsa­voury con­tro­versy to shield yet anoth­er highly mixed per­form­ance dur­ing a ODI series.
Sri Lanka are a decent side – but without the wick­et tak­ing machine that was Mut­ti­ah Mur­a­lithar­an in the line-up and home advant­age you would have expec­ted Eng­land to win the series.… Lees die volledige artikel

0Engeland in die behoefte van Moore somer klas

Verskonings een en almal vir 'n gebrek aan onlangse musings - dit is alles te danke aan 'n nuwe aankomeling in die huishouding wat my wakker beteken (en slaap) uur is heeltemal oorheers deur bottelvoeding sessies en luier veranderinge - ja 'n bietjie bambino het aangebreek. Give her about 18 years and she’ll be play­ing for Eng­land.
Any­way; to busi­ness.
Wel, to para­phrase Wil­li­am Shakespeare some­what, that was a winter of dis­con­tent for Eng­land. After pretty inept per­form­ances in the Ashes most would have thought it couldn’t get any worse. It did – the humi­li­at­ing defeat against the Neth­er­lands (even if it was a ‘dead rub­ber’) prov­ing the coup de grâce. Before and since that final sham­bol­ic out­ing there have been some high pro­file cas­u­al­ties — gone are coach Andy Flower, middle order main­stay Jonath­an Trott and spin king Graeme Swann. And then of course there is the whole saga around Kev­in Pietersen. Glove­man Matt Pri­or will also be nervously look­ing over his shoulder as oth­ers threaten his place in the side.… Lees die volledige artikel

0Australië stoom op in die geveg teen Proteas

Wanneer Engeland kwadraat tot Australië in die laaste reeks om die As ek, soos baie, gedink dat die besoekers sal die urn in die vyf wedstryde behou. Dit is altyd 'n taaier stryd as die somer onthulling maar oorwinning sal na verwagting.

Speler vir speler Engeland was net te sterk, En hulle was nie? Op daardie stadium, with the standout excep­tion of middle-order maes­tro Michael Clarke, a com­bined XI of the two sides would have been dom­in­ated by the three lions. Oth­er than skip­per Clarke who would have made the com­bined side? Per­haps Dav­id Warner for Michael Car­berry? A fit Ryan Har­ris in for either Chris Trem­lett or Tim Bresnan? Cer­tainly the former, prob­ably the lat­ter. A place for Shane Wat­son? Miskien - maar wat sou hy vervang? Op die oog af, how­ever, Eng­land cer­tainly appeared the stronger out­fit.… Lees die volledige artikel
