Brian Lara 501 Not Out

2018-11-29T11:48:23+00:00November 28th, 2018|News|7 Comments

Who is your favourite batsman of all time? For me it's probably Brian Lara. Even though I'm a Worcestershire and England supporter, and Lara played for rival teams, I don't think there's any batsman I've enjoyed watching more. He was so flamboyant, elegant, powerful, and quite simply unique. That high back-lift, those [...]

Pats On The Back All Round

Overseas wins for the England cricket team are rare. Two wins in a row is rarer. And series wins are even rarer than sightings of Lord Lucan and Elvis Presley. England have therefore achieved something quite impressive this month. This is the side, remember, that couldn't even win in Bangladesh two winters [...]

If [...]

First of all a confession. I wasn't able to watch much of today's play because I had a symposium at work. Therefore the following report is a mixture of second hand opinions and guesswork. However, I don't think it takes a genius to work out what happened. Perhaps I should've just cut [...]

Galle – Day 2

2018-11-07T18:48:28+00:00November 7th, 2018|SL v Eng 2018|8 Comments

Well this is rather pleasant isn't it? England are currently sitting pretty with a lead of 177 and all ten wickets still intact. The only thing that can stop us winning this test match is the weather. Famous last words. The day couldn't have gone much better. Ben Foakes completed a debut [...]
