The Photo The ECB Doesn’t Want You To See

By |December 10th, 2019|Categories: Fun|8 Comments

See the poor sod in the photo above? His name is Dave. And Dave's depressed. Like many people who grew up watching cricket in the 1980s and 1990s, Dave has seen English cricket change irrevocable over the years. And now his favourite competition, the county championship, has been shunted to the fringes of the season so that a shiny new [...]

A Christmas Message From Colin Graves

By |December 9th, 2019|Categories: Fun|16 Comments

Dear Valued Customers, As the frosts harden and sales of Costcutter cocoa start to peak, one's thoughts inevitably turn to Christmas - that special time when harmony and goodwill to all men (and women, never forget the world cup winning women) flows like craft gin at a St John's Wood wine bar. Love really is all around. It's tangible. And [...]

Selecting England’s Squad For South Africa

By |December 6th, 2019|Categories: SA v Eng 2020, Test Cricket|27 Comments

Although the ink in the Seddon Park scorebook is barely dry, England's selectors will choose their squads for South Africa tomorrow. The games come thick and fast this winter, with the first Test commencing as soon as Boxing Day. This gives the players about 20 hours to digest their festive turkey, xmas pud, and schooners of Drambuie, before they're back [...]

One Of Us: RIP Bob Willis

By |December 5th, 2019|Categories: Nostalgia|16 Comments

Will he be missed? He certainly will, Charles. Today is a really sad day. Like many people I feel absolutely gutted at the loss of Bob Willis. He was loved by all and he's left us all far too soon. Bob was one of the few cricket pundits who was just like us supporters. He was candid and critical because [...]

What We Didn’t Learn In New Zealand

By |December 4th, 2019|Categories: NZ v Eng 2019, Test Cricket|16 Comments

I love a good tour of New Zealand me. The scenery is gorgeous (unless they're playing in Aukland), the people are nice, the teams are evenly matched, and the weather is good but not so good that you immediately want to emigrate. But unfortunately this wasn't your ordinary New Zealand tour. The scenery was pretty (especially at Mount Maunganui) but [...]

Dropping The Ball! – Day 5 At Hamilton

By |December 3rd, 2019|Categories: NZ v Eng 2019, Test Cricket|16 Comments

Imagine this. You're an England bowler. You've bowled a massive 82 overs in the space of ten days. You've taken just two wickets at a cost of 105 runs each, your captain has questioned your effort in public, and you're part of an attack with the worst collective series strike-rate in the history of the England team. And then this [...]

The Joe Show – Day 4 At Hamilton

By |December 2nd, 2019|Categories: NZ v Eng 2019, Test Cricket|9 Comments

Good news. We're not going to lose this game. Ok, there's a remote possibility that we might get bowled out in a session, ahem, but even the most pessimistic England supporters should feel pretty relaxed with our situation overnight. There's even a slim chance that we might force a win. Although I'd whisper this one very quietly lest we jinx [...]
