When England squared up to Australia in the last Ashes series I, ڪيترن ئي وانگر, 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, اهي نه هئا? هن وقت, 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? ٿي سگهي ٿو - پر هن جو مٽائي ها? ان جي منهن تي, تنهن هوندي به, England certainly appeared the stronger outfit.… پڙهي پورو آرٽيڪل
ڇا مون جي باري ۾ مون کي مٿي کان نازل ٿينديون ٿي سگهي ٿو جو چوڻ آهيان ... پر مون کي خوشي آهي ته هن خاڪ سيريز هڪ آخر ۾ آهي آهيان لاء. ڪافي چئجي آسٽريليا پري سندن انفرادي حصن جي پڄاڻي کان ڀلو ادا ڪيو ۽ انگلينڊ ويا آهن, سنڌ جي وڏي حصي لاء, بلڪل diabolical.
جيئن ته پڪ جيئن رات ڏينهن جي Aussies هڪ devastating 5-0 سيريز ورتي مٿي ڍڪيل جي پٺيان, ڪنهن ڏکيائي جي ٻيهر هڪ ڪري ڇڏين ڪل هڪ بين الاقوامي لائن اپ جو لائق نه لاء انگلستان ٻاهر بالنگ. سنڌين هاڻي واپس وڃڻ جي ضرورت آهي, re-group and pick up the pieces from this potentially disastrous tour down-under.… پڙهي پورو آرٽيڪل
English winters are a terrible thing. Cold and wet, 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 one that stirs the imagination and one that I will raise a cold beer to.
Boxing Day tests have been held every year since 1980 (except 1989 when a one day match vs Sri Lanka was played instead (boo – ed) and at the Melbourne Cricket Club in Australia – aka the MCG). They have also been dominated by some massive crowds (which have approached six figures on occasion).... پڙهي پورو آرٽيڪل
After such a slow start to the game the first test finished at break neck speed today – and what a performance by Stuart Broad to raise the chequered flag.
نه رڳو هن ڪلب ڪيو 20 odd important runs (نه نڪرڻ) as England’s innings came to a quick and disappointing end but he followed that by a spell of supreme fast-medium bowling which decimated the New Zealand order.
When Broad is on-song like that he was today there is simply no stopping him and he can be virtually unplayable. The last time he delivered a performance like this was against the Old Enemy at the Oval in the 2009 خاڪ طاهرالقادريء. I recorded the highlights of that day’s play and kept them for a few years just so I could watch it again and again. That day he got a 5‑for, claiming the scalps of Watson, Ponting, Hussey, Clarke and Haddin – so pretty much the Australian top order.… پڙهي پورو آرٽيڪل
