لا نجم يلمع لجانبي

جرة رماد

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 "

يظهر كوك له همة في أداء Ballanced

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 "

كان Sachithra سين Mankades (محاولة قائلا أنه بعد عدد قليل من البيرة!)

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’ (الذين على وجه الأرض صاغ تلك العبارة?) – 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… اقرأ أكثر "

من الرماد الى الرماد, انجلترا لالغبار

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 "

England — just what is up??

What has happened to Eng­land? في الاختبارات الماضيين أنها كانت مروعة. I can’t think of any pos­it­ives to take out of either game. The bat­ting line up has been short of runs for some time now. The bowl­ers won the Ashes for Eng­land last time round, des­pite the best efforts of the… اقرأ أكثر "

انتقادات انجلترا عن اللاعبين يستريح

T20

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, جرس, جرايم سوان, Jimmy Ander­son and T20 cap­tain Stu­art Broad are all put­ting their feet up… اقرأ أكثر "

أستراليا عقد اليد العليا - في مباراة المطاط الميتة

جرة رماد

يومين في واستراليا لديها بالتأكيد اليد العليا. لكن ماذا في ذلك. وفاز رماد وفاز جدا مقنع في ذلك. 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… اقرأ أكثر "

إنجلترا وويلز مجلس الكريكيت شعار

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. لقد عدنا الآن على الرغم من, لذلك لا خوف. وبالتالي, Eng­land wrapped up the Ashes with a barn­storm­ing per­form­ance on the last day to well and truly send them… اقرأ أكثر "

3–0 to England… what have we learned?

جرة رماد

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, so… اقرأ أكثر "
