Sorry, there was no Wednesday Wickets last week but this week… it’s back! Associate Acquisitions? It’s a shame that Benny Howell hasn’t played for England. The likes of Tom Curran and Chris Jordan (Slower balls included) have probably prevented his path.

Welcome to a new regular feature that will appear each Wednesday. In Wednesday Wickets, I’ll put all (Well, some!) of my cricket thoughts from the last seven days into one post. This is rather than scripting a post and it not seeing the light of day for a few weeks, potentially losing some relevance orContinue reading “Wednesday Wickets #001”
No, this isn’t a cricket blog (Honest!) and yes, the above image is from Cricket 19 but… Cricket 22 is confirmed! Big Ant’s fifth (And best?) cricket game is due for release on November 25th. Read the details from the horse’s mouth here… https://www.bigant.com/announcing-cricket-22-a-new-era-of-cricket-games-has-arrived/ Will it be riddled with bugs and crash half the time?Continue reading “Special Post: Cricket 22… CONFIRMED!”
