March 26th, 2020|ODIs & T20|8 Comments

World sport is obviously suffering from a period of extreme uncertainty at the moment, with major competitions and events being cancelled or moved. Perhaps the most notable to be shifted is the 2020 football Euros, which has now been delayed by a full year to accommodate domestic football calendars. With the men’s [...]

Fun In Aukland

November 10th, 2019|NZ v Eng 2019, ODIs & T20|11 Comments

I had to laugh when I saw the score in the deciding T20 at Aukland. Of course it was going to end in a tie. The only surprise was that the super over managed to produce a clear winner this time. One wonders what might've happened had the super over ended all [...]

Dangerous Dawid

I won’t ask you to boot up your phone and laptop cameras, but I wish you could see the beaming smile etched across my face. There’s nothing better than destroying / obliterating / absolutely tanking the Aussies, and to do it in a World Cup semi final is all the sweeter. England [...]

Still Alive

July 1st, 2019|ODIs & T20, World Cup 2019|49 Comments

What a weekend of cricket. I'll start by quickly mentioning the Pakistan and Afghanistan contest, which was one of the best ODIs I've seen in ages. Although I feel desperately sad for Afghanistan, who really should have won, I tip my hat to Pakistan's middle and late-order. It was some comeback. The [...]

Mathews Sticks It To Us

June 21st, 2019|ODIs & T20, World Cup 2019|29 Comments

We should have known better. I should have known better. When Sri Lanka were meandering along at 4 runs per over in the 40th over of their innings, puzzled looks were exchanged, and predictable jokes were made. Nick Hoult of the Telegraph thanked Angelo Mathews for showing him what an ODI in [...]
