What The Hell Was That?

Thanks a bunch England. I was going to take a breather from TFT this week as I've belatedly moved into a new house. I've been up to my eyeballs in boxes (that's boxes of the cardboard variety not men's abdominal guards), and I was planning to simply write a summary at the [...]

Are India really the No.1 ranked team in the world? You could have fooled me. They were completely inept in this match: no backbone, no skill, and no clue. They looked like Sri Lanka back in the 1980s or perhaps even Bangladesh on their inaugural tour of England. That might sound harsh [...]

It’s second test time. That means another five days (or perhaps just three) of my wife moaning at me for watching TV all day with my mobile phone in hand. Oh the joys of marital ‘bliss’. Fortunately Edgbaston was worth the earache, and this Lord’s could be a beauty too. After all, [...]

Ah Birmingham. An English cricketing fortress and cultural powerhouse. Home to world’s most beautifully named football club, the UK’s spiciest balti, and a musician named Astro. It’s also the place where Richie Benaud uttered arguably the two most revered words in the sporting lexicon: “Jones! Bowden!” I’m afraid I wasn’t able to [...]
