Cricket, lovely cricket




He’s bowled peaches.

Was just getting iffy and that should stuff them?!


Curran :money_mouth_face:


And he’s still got one more over to go








Great game.



Great bowling from Curran, he’s a top prospect.


Another great SA import!


Don’t care where we get them from as long as they can perform.


England just trounced the Prime Minister’s XI in a T20 warm up game, hitting the 137 required off 12.4 overs. Nothing special there, except that David Willey opened the batting and scored 79 which included smashing Nathan Lyon for 34 in one over.

He hit 5 sixes and was on for the maximum, but only hit the last ball of the over for four. Unfortunately not on TV but it made good listening!


Here you go:

It’s not the first time either:


I wish we had played the one day series before the Ashes, we gave their bowlers too much respect in the tests.


Absolutely. Sometimes, even in the 5 day game, aggression is needed to knock the bowlers out of their rhythm a la Stokes, Pieterson, Flintoff, Botham etc. We were far too passive in the tests.


We made Lyon look like Shane Warne in his pomp.

It was said before the tour that we were concentrating on the one day matches and definitely looks that way. Mark Wood has come out and said he wanted to play in the tests.

Why not try the likes of Roy. We need batsmen capable of playing match winning knocks, scratching around for 30 or 40 runs is ok for the averages but no use in an Ashes series.



I hope he didn’t drop the ball.


Just woke up. Checked the scores for the Eng/NZ test. England all out for 58 after 20.4 overs. WTF???


Haha, really?! Didn’t see that.


Rugby, cricket, football and athletics - England national teams and the associations behind them are not fit for purpose.
They make the Governemnt look organised and efficient.
