Who Should Replace Hales?

2019-04-30T21:21:23+00:00April 30th, 2019|News, World Cup 2019|20 Comments

It just wouldn't be England without some pre-World Cup drama. In previous years we made last minute changes to personnel because, well, the team was a bit crap and the selectors desperately hoped some new faces would turn the tide. This time, however, we're facing a mini crisis because our governing body [...]

Today Marco talks about his Yorkshire roots and what the county’s return to York this summer means to him. It’s a touching tale about cricket, life, and above all, family.   Yorkshire are playing Warwickshire in a County Championship game at York this season. There’s nothing unusual about that except that Yorkshire [...]

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 [...]

The Monday Marshmallow

2018-06-18T17:31:13+00:00June 18th, 2018|News|19 Comments

Evening all. I thought I'd quickly put pen to paper (or rather fingers to a keyboard) before the England football match kicks off in an hour or so. In fact, by the time you read this England will either be the best team in the world and dead certs to lift the [...]

The Monday Macadamia

Afternoon all. I hope you enjoyed the weekend more than I did. England lost the rugby, my club side lost their relegation showdown at London Irish, and obviously our cricketers lost their ODI against New Zealand too. It was one of those weekends that felt like a kick in the crotch ... [...]

The Thursday Thali

2017-08-24T11:10:01+00:00August 24th, 2017|News|15 Comments

It's time for another of our midweek roundups. It's what we do when there's no single burning issue to discuss but a plethora of smaller talking points instead. I'll start with Shahid Afridi's amazing century against Derbyshire in the T20 Blast quarter final. He blitzed 101 off 43 balls. Pretty impressive I [...]
