    England Ashes Squad

    Who are we likely to see? Any new faces? Have been really impressed by the way England has been playing recently, despite their inconsistency on occasion. Looks to be a tall order for Australia.

    England In New Zealand

    Quite a competitive ODI series happening down in New Zealand at the moment. The teams split the first two matches, although as I type the New Zealanders are up against it batting first in the decider. I am looking forward to the Test series and seeing how a few of the youngsters play. Always...

    Pakistan In South Africa

    I have to say, I have been quite heartened by this series. Pakistan have been their usual frustrating selves, but they have played on some very tough pitches against a very good side and shown some real brilliance at times. The third Test got underway yesterday and although the Proteas have...

    Indian Test Team Selection Thread

    What do people think of the Indian Test team at the moment? I was not surprised to see Gambhir dropped for the current series given his horrid run of form, but there does seem to be a fair bit of shock that Dhawan was his replacement. I am not too familar with the young player but I will be...

    Moises Henriques - Is He The Real Deal?

    Failing to live up to expectations has been the hallmark of Henriques' career so far. When he burst onto the scene as a teenager he was a top-order batsman with beautiful technique who also happened to bowl at 145kph+, a genuine contender to take over Keith Miller's mantle. Fast forward...

    Spotlight On: Great Rotw Players

    In continuing my series on my favourite players from around the world, I thought I'd make a thread in this forum for players from a range of countries. In some ways, for me personally I think this will be the most interesting and educational thread as my knowledge of countries outside of...

    Spotlight On: Great Australian Players

    Along the same lines as my thread in the England forum, I have been reading a lot of history of the game recently and have been inspired to post some information about some of my favourite players to have graced the Test arena. The players who will appear in this thread are not necessarily the...

    P C B To Submit Corruption Strategy At Next I C C Meeting

    The die is cast. A deadline has been set, and the PCB has undertaken to submit a detailed report on combating corruption to the next ICC meeting in Hong Kong, on 26-30 June. What this report will contain is anyone's guess. Not since the Cronje scandal has one country been so engulfed by the...

    From Offspin To Medium Pace

    Well, I'm not techically an offspinner but the same principle applies. As a very parttime bowler I have for many years made use of my left-handedness to bowl a bit of useful left arm orthodox spin. My problem is that as my career's progressed I've spent more time focusing on my batting. Also...

    Spotlight On: Great English Players

    I have been reading a fair bit of history of the game - downloading old versions of Wisden onto my Kindle, and thumbing through overviews - and have learned a lot about players of the past that I previously knew little more of other than the name. I thought I might post some brief vignettes on...

    Ranji Trophy 2010-11

    Okay, so this competition is into its second round and already there has been some amazing cricket being played. Last week's match between Gujarat and Saurashtra produced some nailbiting cricket. After losing the first day due to rain, Saurashtra was sitting on a 130 run lead with 8 wickets in...

    The Final Pace Spot

    Okay, so it looks like Finn has the final bowling spot all tied up for England, but Tremlett and particularly Bresnan have been performing extremely well against Australia A in Hobart. They have been taking wickets and looking extremely dangerous with the movement they're getting. How far away...
