“Bloody South Africans!”

published 19/01/2010

ProGood series

ContraNo bowling

The great irony of the ECBs increasing moves to reduce the number of South Africans in the domestic English game so to help young English players come through has seen the ECB increasingly pick players born in South Africa to play for England, Trot the latest, a guy who played all his cricket in...

You know it's been a dry year for British sport when some of the top bets for the Sports Personality of the Year consist of a man who won his first grand prix at the seven thousandth attempt and a comedian who swam the channel for charity. That's where the Ashes come in handy. By the time the...

England have already lost the Ashes to Australia, and now looking to desperately avoid a 5-0 whitewash in the series. Having lost the first three tests easily, England could only get better, while Australia seem unstoppable, outclassing their opponents in every department. Will this fourth test...

Contra2 many poor performers

The first day at headingly is drawing to a close and already it is clear this test will, weather permitting, have a result England need to survive the last few overs tonight and then the opening assault from curtley and courtney in the morning to have any hope of reaching the windies total then...

ProStrength of character

ContraBack injury

Mike Atherton we need you! Do not even contemplate retirement in the near future. The final test this summer against the West Indies has proved beyond doubt that he is young enough and good enough to play test cricket for a number of years yet. When the chips are down he is the most obdurate...

England have done it at last !!! The West Indies were slaughtered by the mighty English resurgence. Well nearly. England appear to be a team possessed or at least very different from other teams from the 90s. They have a fire and a passion. The batting may not quite be there but with the current...

“Give youth a chance”

published 24/07/2000

ProAndy Caddick and Darren Gough

ContraToo many 30+ players

Surely it is time that the Englnd cricket team gave youth a chance. Even though they won the triangular series the players involved in most of the games are nearly all on the wrong side of 30. Darren Gough is shortly set to join the 30 plus brigade, leaving only Andy Flintoff, Paul Franks and...

“Is this a revival?”

published 25/07/2000

ProExciting to watch, can produce excellent cricket

ContraInconsistency

It is of course wonderful to see England producing some decent cricket. However beating Zimbabwe in a Test and then in a One-Day Final is far from proof that the revival is complete. England will struggle to beat the Windies although I think they will manage it. What happens when we meet South...

ContraWeak willed, gutless, lacking in quality

Anyone who is anyone knows that there is a vital cricket match today (2nd March 2003). England need to beat Australia to have any real chance of progressing in the Cricket World Cup.
