    England Take No.1 Spot By Thrashing India

    England I sense will use the West Indies as a warm up series for the South African tour that is in June. In all honesty they should be more than able to handle the West Indies at home. England have some issues, that they need to get sorted: Andrew Strauss cant score a run at the moment and...

    John Wright Gone!

    I think this is a case of personality clashes. Buchanan seems to do that and Wright I sense has had enough and thus the contract is ending. Wright seems to me the best man for the job but I think Buchanan being director of cricket will make things difficult. One thing to keep in mind, is that...

    Is Smith Done?

    @ljp the form is as I mentioned the last 12 months. I am implying that he should be sent to domestic cricket and not be moved to another place in the batting order. The dropping to domestic cricket did Mark Boucher a world of good. It would also send a strong message to senior players who I...

    Is Smith Done?

    I have been thinking about an issue for the last few weeks. A year ago I doubt I would even write it let alone think it. So here goes. I believe strongly that Graeme Smith is at the cross roads of his international career. Injuries and a complete lack of form has dogged the once unbeatable...

    Hilditch And Chappell Sacked

    Inverarity is a very interesting selection. I agree with Kram81, I also did not see this coming. I hope he does a good job and that CA provide him with enough authority to ensure that he can get things done. The only concern I have came from this: I It will now be essential to his role as...

    The Time Has Come For To Move On

    Update: Yesterday, Nyoka was voted out as President for the second time. It seems that this might be last time that he is mentioned as CSA President as the vote was one of no confidence in his leadership abilities. The Minisiter for Sport in South Africa has now entered this battle and seems...

    Pat Howard New Gm, Team Performance

    Former Rugby Union International , Performance Director for ARU Pat Howard has been made GM: Team Performance by CA. It is part of the Argus recommendations and is "a key appointment". A new selection panel and head coach still needs to be appointment. I must admit I have no problem with the...

    Hilditch And Chappell Sacked

    The Argus report is a significant statement of an intent. I commend CA for making all of the recommendations public as it paints a really bad picture of them. If there is one recommendation that caught my attention it is the talent pool that is to be created. Love the concept and I think if...

    England Take No.1 Spot By Thrashing India

    Gentleman, can I for the record state that I think this is a fairer reflection of how things are really in international cricket. India got the test ranking by math calculations and not be winning many test matches. I agree with the notion that England needs to win alot of away test series to...

    The Time Has Come For To Move On

    Who Is The Strongest Associate Side?

    Agree with ljp and hope that the ICC does give them the same backing that they gave Bangladesh. I do think that the time has come for the ICC to stop England from taking their best talent. Note Boyd Rankin has been added to the England Lion's team.
