Who Will Win the Ashes? The Results

If you didn’t get your vote in then I’m sorry. It’s a pretty quick turn around for the results! The people have spoken and Australia are your favourites for this year’s Ashes series. The hosts claimed an emphatic 100% of the votes! Come on England! Hopefully the series can play out without a hitch andContinue reading “Who Will Win the Ashes? The Results”

Wednesday Wickets #004

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. His career record speaks for itself though… https://www.espncricinfo.com/player/benny-howell-211748 England rejection doesn’t have to meanContinue reading “Wednesday Wickets #004”

Wednesday Wickets #003

Sibley Stays at Home Discarded England Test opener Dom Sibley has withdrawn from the England Lions squad to work on his technique at home. I can’t say that I’m convinced this is a good decision! Sibley’s place has been taken by Yorkshire’s Big Bash bound Harry Brook. It’s not inconceivable that injury/COVID etc could resultContinue reading “Wednesday Wickets #003”

CatchingContinue reading “Bonus Post: More Cricket 22 Info!”

Wednesday Wickets #002

Welcome to the second edition of Wednesday Wickets. The T20 World Cup has commenced and so it could be easy to forget about the county game, but… Hosein Retires Some extremely sad news from Derbyshire, that 25-year-old wicketkeeper Harvey Hosein has been forced to retire due to concussion. Hosein made an immediate impact with theContinue reading “Wednesday Wickets #002”

CricketXI: T20 World Cup

The T20 World Cup starts tomorrow and the above graphic displays my CricketXI fantasy team. I won’t go on a rant about meritocracy and the structure (Or lack of!) of international cricket but… My team consists of players from primarily Associate nations not Full Members because the former must play First Round matches prior toContinue reading “CricketXI: T20 World Cup”

Wednesday Wickets #001

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”

Special Post: Cricket 22… CONFIRMED!

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!”
