    Bangladesh v England - Test Matches

    First of all well done Cook for England's record caps. :owusu: Going to very hot & a slow pitch. Looks like Bangladesh will play four spinners. I'd go: Cook Hameed (but it will probably be Duckett) Root Ballance Stokes Bairstow Ali Woakes Rashid Some young fella called Batty Broad...

    3rd Ashes Test at the WACA.

    How many changes for England. Come on Guys & Girls, Name your England team. Our history in Perth is crap, A must not lose match. Will it be the normal quick wicket or have they gone for a slow high scoring pitch (does it matter with our batting line-up). Last chance saloon for a few.

    SL v Eng: 1st Test in Galle.

    After the humiliation against Pakistan it's time for the England team to stand up & be counted. Interesting times for the selectors. Bopara or Patel?. They must be praying Bell scores some runs. How many spinners do we play?. Plus we have the Anderson, Broad, Bresnan or Finn debate. The DRS...

    England's 'face-saving' 3rd Test against Pakistan in Dubai.

    Dead rubber concerning the series, But this is a big big game for England. Bouncebackability or another middle-order rabbits in the headlights. Who stays or more importantly who goes.

    England's 1st Test against Pakistan in Dubai.

    This series in the UAE has come slightly under the radar. Is it a two spinner pitch & do we see the return of Panesar. How good is Saeed Ajmal's 'teesra'. One thing for sure is that it will be a lot more competitive then the current series Down Under.

    Two good old traditional derbies.

    Steel city & Black country this Sunday. I know both Sheffield clubs are there on merit but over 32,000 for a 3rd tier game. Draw at Bramell Lane & Baggies for me.

    So England are back in the principality next Thursday. We all remember the last time playing at Sophia Gardens & the heroic last wicket stand. OK there will be at least two changes to England's starting eleven from the last Test whipping the Aussies by an innings in Sydney. Here's that famous...

    IPL 2011

    After all the euphoria of India winning the WC. The IPL is back, Bigger & more glitzy then ever. Madras are doing well so far against Calcutta (Sorry all you modern folk)). Do we have any favouritism for any teams on the gpg.

    World Cup to remain free-to-air in UK after European Court Ruling

    Total hypocrisy from FIFA & UEFA - They slag off the Premiership for taking Murdoch's dollar & creating what is the worldwide brand, but are quite prepared to do exactly the same. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12482371

    England's qualifier against the Swiss in Basel.

    All eye's will be on our Wayne. I'll have Cahill as the other centre half, but don't be surprised in FC goes with Upson for a bit of experience. Hopefully the Swiss come out to play instead of the normal 10 men behind the ball.

    England's final Test of the summer against Pakistan at Lord's.

    We've still got a job to do on Pakistan before thoughts turn to Brisbane. Umar Gul look's to be fit again, but to drop Riaz would be harsh. No doubt England will go with the same team - But I'm disappointed that we've not experimented with a fifth bowler that I think we'll need down-under. The...

    England v Pakistan: 2nd Test at Edgbaston.

    The England bandwagon rolls into Birmingham this Friday. Would love to be a fly on the wall in the Pakistani hotel - The PCB bring back Mohammad Yousuf without talking to Salmann Butt or Waqar Younis first. Then send Danish Kaneria scuttling back to county cricket for him to be replaced by an 18...

    England v Pakistan: 1st Test at Trent Bridge.

    No real surprises in the squad. I do like the look of our bowling attack with Broad, Swann, Anderson & Finn. The Bell injury made the selectors job a bit easier. Anybody feel Bopara is unlucky or time to move on. More good experience for Shahzad as 12th man.....England's starting to get a sense...

    Pakistan's Test series over here against Australia.

    Anyone going, Anyone interested. Both teams in transition & Australia will be looking to reclaim the No:1 ranking. It's a good opportunity to gauge the Aussies in the five day format before we head down-under. Is Steven Smith the spin master they crave. Will Pakistan capitulate from a winning...
