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.
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 "
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 "
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 "
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 "
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 "
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 "
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 "
