England’s Best Ever XI Revisited

2018-05-30T15:21:23+00:00 May 30th, 2018|Nostalgia|65 Comments

It was my tenth wedding anniversary at the weekend, so my Mrs and I took a trip down memory lane and stayed at the hotel where we got married. "That's all very well" you might say "but on earth has this got to do with cricket"? It's because the one thing I [...]

The first home test of 2018 begins today when England face Pakistan at Lord's; therefore we're going to bring you a touch of nostalgia to put you in the mood for some good old fashioned test cricket. New guest writer Haroon Khalid, who is a bit of a fearsome fast bowler himself, [...]

My Winter Escape

2017-12-12T17:40:04+00:00 December 12th, 2017|Nostalgia|3 Comments

Today we have an article by new guest writer Lee Payne. If, like me, you love watching England during the long winter nights, you might rather enjoy this ... although I'm not expecting too much joy at Perth!  I haven’t been abroad for almost a decade. In fact, my passport expired four [...]

Pull the other one – England’s Ashes injury hoodoos

2017-11-16T17:21:50+00:00 November 8th, 2017|Nostalgia|17 Comments

Injuries. They’re the bane of the England cricket team’s existence. And every time there’s an Ashes tour down under things just go from bad to worse. Back in the 1990s England only seemed to have two players the Aussies worried about: Darren Gough and Graham Thorpe. Therefore it was odds on they’d [...]

Bloody Australians

2017-10-26T11:05:16+00:00 October 26th, 2017|Nostalgia|27 Comments

First I’ll begin with a confession. When I was a teenager I used to take life too seriously. And I used to get far too worked up about sport. I used to hate Shane Warne with a passion (a very unhealthy passion), and I used to fantasise about punching Matthew Hayden in [...]

Captain’s Log: Durham 1999 Part 4

2017-07-23T08:49:48+00:00 July 23rd, 2017|Nostalgia|3 Comments

Welcome back! Durham’s real life season has been a bit of a disaster, but at least they have the excuse of starting in negative points. Here, back 1999 on International Cricket Captain, Durham are still a relatively new first class county and have just about shaken off the wooden spoon tag. But they’re [...]

Our Dear Old Blowers

2017-07-19T08:41:03+00:00 July 19th, 2017|Nostalgia|19 Comments

I suppose that Henry Blofeld has often divided opinion. You could almost describe him as the Jeremy Corbyn of the commentary box - a sobriquet that is deliberately facetious as I think it would be stretching credibility to suggest that Blowers is hiding even a hint of red under the bed. He might have a [...]

Flashback: The 2004 U19 World Cup

2017-06-20T17:35:49+00:00 June 20th, 2017|Nostalgia|0 Comments

Here's a trip down memory lane from new guest writer Lee Payne. This submission got my attention because I remember U19 World Cups fondly. Enjoy! Remember when you were young? Remember when it was so easy to get obsessed with something? Sport wasn't something I enjoyed until I was about 9 years [...]
