0بھارت تیسرے ٹیسٹ میں پہل

میں دو تجربوں, 1–0 to India. England’s poor sum­mer con­tin­ued apace today with a shock­ing (sorry, انتہائی خراب) 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.

0مور موسم گرما طبقے کی ضرورت میں انگلینڈ

Apo­lo­gies one and all for a lack of recent mus­ings – it’s all due to a new arrival in the house­hold which has meant my wak­ing (and sleep­ing) hours are com­pletely dom­in­ated by bottle feed­ing ses­sions and nappy changes – yes a little bambino has arrived. Give her about 18 years and she’ll be play­ing for Eng­land.
Any­way; to busi­ness.
ٹھیک ہے, 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.… مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

0آسٹریلیا پروٹیز کے خلاف جنگ میں بھاپ

When Eng­land squared up to Aus­tralia in the last Ashes series I, بہت سے Like, thought the vis­it­ors would retain the urn dur­ing the five match series. It was always going to a tough­er battle than the sum­mer show­down but vic­tory was expec­ted.

Play­er for play­er Eng­land were just too strong, وہ نہیں تھے? وقت پہ, 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? شاید - لیکن وہ کون تبدیل کرے گا? اس کے چہرے پر, کس طرح کبھی, Eng­land cer­tainly appeared the stronger out­fit.… مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

0راھ سے راھ, خاک میں انگلینڈ

میرے کہنے کا میں نے اوپر سے نیچے مارا جا سکتا ہے کے بارے میں ہوں ... لیکن میں خوش ہوں کہ یہ ایشز سیریز اپنے اختتام پر ہے. Quite simply Aus­tralia have played far bet­ter than the sum of their indi­vidu­al parts and Eng­land have been, بڑے حصے کے لئے, abso­lutely diabol­ic­al.

As sure as night fol­lows day the Aus­sies wrapped up a dev­ast­at­ing 5–0 series win, yet again bowl­ing Eng­land out for a piti­ful total not worthy of an inter­na­tion­al line up. The vis­it­ors now need to go back, re-group and pick up the pieces from this poten­tially dis­astrous tour down-under.… مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

0گریم سوان نے فوری طور پر ریٹائرمنٹ کا اعلان کر دیا

Amongst the wreck­age of the Ashes tour comes anoth­er seis­mic bomb­shell — the best Eng­lish spin­ner in a gen­er­a­tion has handed his tick­et in.

Yes it’s true — Graeme Swann has announced his imme­di­ate retire­ment. کیا ایک بڑے پیمانے پر نقصان. Swann was a great play­er, com­pet­it­or, fight­er and all-round team man. اس نے یہ بھی گول ایک چمگادڑ صحیح راستہ پکڑ سکتا.

Hav­ing taken 255 wick­ets in his test career at a shade under 30 ایک ٹکڑا, ان کے ریکارڈ کو دیکھنے کے لئے سب کے لئے نہیں ہے اور اسے تبدیل کرنے کے لئے بہت مشکل ہو جا رہا ہے. As always with Eng­land there’s hardly a queue of spin­ners banging down the door to take his place in the side. So does that mean we go back to the days of only ever pick­ing a twirler when the pitch suits rather than a first choice?... مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

2T20آرام کھلاڑیوں کے بارے میں انگلینڈ کے broadside کی

As I sit listen­ing to the T20 freak-show (it mar­gin­ally beats whatever soap based rub­bish the wife is watch­ing) I’ve been con­tem­plat­ing the debate that’s been stirred after Eng­land res­ted five key play­ers for the ODI series.

Cap­tain Cook, بیل, گریم سوان, Jimmy Ander­son and T20 cap­tain Stu­art Broad are all put­ting their feet up and let­ting a new-look Eng­land take on the Aus­sies for the five match series.

Former Cap­tain Michael Vaughan has had his say and Stu­art Broad has fired back. The media have of course jumped on to a healthy debate and stirred it into a bit of a row.… مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

1ایشز کلشAustralia hold the upper hand — in a dead rubber match

Two days in and Aus­tralia cer­tainly have the upper hand. لیکن تو کیا. The Ashes are won and won pretty con­vin­cingly at that. This is a dead-rub­ber match and is very remin­is­cent of Ashes series of old when Eng­land used to sud­denly pull a decent per­form­ance out of the hat when the urn was in the pos­ses­sion of the Aus­sies. Play­ers who time and time again let the team down would sud­denly grab a five-for or score a cen­tury and their series aver­age to the his­tor­ic observ­er would look half-decent.… مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

1انگلینڈ اینڈ ویلز کرکٹ بورڈ (لوگو)Aussies Tonked — Now to the Future

Firstly an apo­logy for not updat­ing the site much of late – along with the oth­er author for this site I’ve been on a drive through Europe.

اب ہم واپس آ گئے ہیں اگرچہ, اتنا نہیں ڈرتے.

تو, Eng­land wrapped up the Ashes with a barn­storm­ing per­form­ance on the last day to well and truly send them pack­ing. A lot has been writ­ten already about England’s per­form­ance and, in par­tic­u­lar, Stu­art Broad’s per­form­ance. It was excel­lent, کے اختتام.

So I’m going to con­cen­trate on some­thing a little dif­fer­ent, ایک چھوٹی سی آف مرکز اگر آپ.

When Aus­tralia were at their peak a few years back (ابھی کچھ وقت پہلے لگتا ہے!) the one mis­take they made was not to blood up-and-com­ing young­sters so they had a chance to exper­i­ence the highs and lows of test match crick­et.… مکمل مضمون پڑھیں

0ایشز کلش3–0 to England… what have we learned?

I’ve been away on hol­i­day for the past 2½ weeks and haven’t had chance to write about the crick­et. Dur­ing that time there have been 2 more Ashes test matches and Eng­land have exten­ded their lead to 3–0. Hav­ing been away from all the talk­ing heads I haven’t heard what they have to say, تو یہاں میرے اپنے خیالات میں سے کچھ ہیں, unin­flu­enced by the pun­dits.
