Brian Lara 501 Not Out

November 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 [...]

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 [...]

James Pope from Fanto and Matt Gisby have been in touch to tell us about games they've developed for The Ashes. I thought I'd pass on the details. James runs a fantasy league site and he's put together an Ashes version you might be interested in. It works a bit like the [...]

The Thursday Thali

August 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 [...]

The Thursday Throwdown

So what's been going on this week? England's women have marched into the semi finals of the World Cup - good work, girls - and the men start the second test against South Africa at Trent Bridge tomorrow. However, the story's that's gripped me most over the last few days concerns Trent [...]
