The Friday Fish Finger

Quite a lot has happened this week. There's been some on-field developments, with England thrashing Pakistan in the first ODI, plus some significant individual performances in the county championship too. There's also a couple of off-field talking points we should sink our teeth into as well. We'll start with England's win at the Rose Bowl. [...]

Super Chris

“Oh heavens, not Jordan”. That was my initial reaction when Eoin Morgan tossed him the ball as England took the field for Pakistan’s super over. I’m not a Jordan fan. Never have been really. But despite having the worst bowling figures of any England bowler during the match, Super Chris was absolutely [...]

Plunkett Proves His Point

2015-11-27T09:03:18+00:00November 27th, 2015|News, PakvEng2015|6 Comments

Is Alastair Cook the most undervalued cricketer in England? No. I'm going to say it's Liam Plunkett. He’s probably the fastest bowler in the country, with the possible exception of Mark Wood, yet he’s not even going to South Africa. At least Cook is on the plane. Yesterday showed just how upset Plunkett [...]

Buttler Pops the Corks

2015-11-20T18:24:15+00:00November 20th, 2015|News, PakvEng2015|8 Comments

This new England ODI side never ceases to amaze me. Every time I try to lower expectations, and keep things in perspective, they pull their pants down and give me the big moon. How on earth is a cynical supporter, who has become accustomed to false dawns over the years, expected to [...]

Hales Make EMS Eat Its Words

2015-11-14T14:20:50+00:00November 14th, 2015|News, PakvEng2015|8 Comments

Just a few words on yesterday's ODI. I'm feeling a little crook today (the combination of a tummy upset and sinusitis isn't pleasant) so I'll keep it brief. Yesterday's win in the cricket was absolutely superb. It was most unexpected too - at least from my perspective. Whereas our openers were a liability [...]

England’s Reality Check

2015-11-12T10:29:15+00:00November 12th, 2015|News, PakvEng2015|12 Comments

Just a few quick thoughts about yesterday's ODI. I won't go into too much detail because I imagine most of the games will follow a similar pattern. I'll be repeating myself before I know it. Essential the game went exactly as many of us had anticipated. Just call me Mystic Morgan. I [...]

That Was the Tour That Was

2015-11-06T15:36:03+00:00November 6th, 2015|News, PakvEng2015|22 Comments

And a very warm welcome to my first guest post for Eat My Sports! Thanks for dropping by. It's quite an interesting experience, actually - returning to the backbenches after so many years at the despatch box on The Full Toss. Once lord of the manor, I am now a mere footman. Thankfully, James has allowed [...]
