About James Morgan

James is a freelance copywriter, author and orthodox (some would say boring) opening batsman. He's written TV and radio scripts for noted cricketing luminaries Carol Vorderman and Caroline Quentin, and composed an academic book about the concept of US imperialism. His real area of expertise, however, is the cover drive.

County Preview: Worcestershire

I had very mixed emotions at the end of the 2018 season. Winning the T20 Blast for the very first time was absolutely superb. It brought back memories of our glory days in the 1980s when trophies flowed like wine at a wedding. But our subsequent relegation to division two, and Joe [...]

Although I haven't been paying close attention to this year's IPL, simply because it's a big year ahead and I need a bit of a rest before the World Cup and the Ashes, I am incredibly interested in how T20 and cricket in general might evolve in the coming years. I'm especially [...]

With the IPL currently dominating the headlines there's been very little to write about of late. I guess I could have written about India's domestic T20 circus but there are two big reasons why I didn't: A) I'm simply not following it, so any article would've been guesswork. B) I doubt TFT's [...]

Don’t Forget It’s An Ashes Year

2019-03-26T17:54:52+00:00March 26th, 2019|Ashes 2019, Test Cricket|26 Comments

A home World Cup is always a super occasion. The last time it happened I was actually travelling around Australia. We'd just endured another Ashes defeat, and I decided to come home after a few months specifically to catch the end of the tournament. Unfortunately England got knocked out before I flew [...]

The Big Why?

I was listening to LBC this morning when I heard cult broadcaster James O'Brien go on another Brexit rant. He's like a broken record. I don't blame him, as political passions are obviously running very high at the moment, but at least it got me thinking. The first thing I thought was [...]

Getting Shirty?

I sense this one is going to divide opinion like a John Bercow intervention. But unlike the political machinations at Westminster, The Full Toss is here to discuss matters that really, erm, matter. So let's debate the big issues of the day; the issues that really define nations and affect lives. I'm [...]
