    *Official* Women's Cricket discussion thread

    Most of the english male players whining about it on twitter are ********. If the laws say you can do it, you can't complain. They may not have done it themselves but the 'that's not cricket' argument is just bollocks. They've got to learn by now that you've got to see the bowler release the...

    Players should have learnt by now especially vs India. Just **** cricket by England. If the laws say you can do it you can't complain. Interesting this only happened at the end of the game when it was getting close- Kinda looks selective rather than spontaneous. Is the law still 'If the...

    *Official* England in Pakistan (T20, September 2022)

    Excellent stuff by Brook and Duckett. Brook could be playing himself into the side for the World t20s. Both pushing their claims for the 50 over stuff in India next year - especially with no Morgan and Stokes in the middle order.

    County Cricket 2022

    Gay (Northants), Haynes (worcestershire), Rew (somerset) and Ollie Price (Glos) are 4 young batsman I'm keeping an eye on as maybe test players of the future. Then again another year's time and it'll probably be 4 other randoms.

    County Cricket 2022

    According to the internet England t20 squad fly out to Pakistan in 2 days time, with the first game a week tomorrow so explains where Jacks and Curran are. Schedule gets more and more ridiculous.

    County Cricket 2022

    ugh Gloucestershire crawling to 246-5 in 92 overs on day 3 vs Somerset after having a 100 run lead on first innings and a solid base in the 2nd innings. No ambition, No wonder we are bottom by more than 30 points. Sam Cook 188 wickets @20.43 before this game. Average down to 19.8 after 9...

    England players and selection discussion thread

    Hales hasn't even been that good recently in T20(and other) iirc. Don't think they were overly keen to bring him back but Roy's lack of form and Bairstow's injury have forced their hand. Salt should have played more cricket earlier in the summer for England when Roy was obviously struggling imo...

    *Official* South African tour of England and Ireland 2022

    being fit? Jamie is injured. Yes it's stupid. Even if they think this is the guy, it's counterproductive to keep picking him at this point. His confidence must be non existent. His game which had weaknesses at the best of times is in a terrible state. Just drop him and let him find some...

    Stokes retiring from ODI cricket

    Just need Moeen to go now and that's all 3 of the middle order, left hand over 30s leaving the stage in ODIS in recent weeks. **** moves quick. Given we don't exactly have any bowling right now it doesn't exactly bode well for the WC.

    County Cricket 2022

    That's a thrashing and a half. He came through at Worcestershire and very highly rated but couldn't stay even remotely fit. I thought he was going to be lost to the game until Derbyshire picked him up. In the Lions squad for the games v South Africa this week.

    *Official* India tour of Ireland and England 2022

    Shame Edgbaston didn't learn from the other tests. Sold out and yet the ground isn't even half full. Should be say £10 rather than £0. Would stop people booking up freebie tickets and then not going.

    England players and selection discussion thread

    Stokes was hardly going to say otherwise having selected him. It's not the easiest of things because Crawley's confidence looks at a very low ebb last test and it's not doing him much good playing at this point. It's also not that easy to bring someone else in for this one off test too with...

    Eoin Morgan retirement

    Morgan physically has looked bad for a while. Unwilling to run quick singles or 2s, and in the outfield looking very stiff in the back. Kinda surprising for someone I thought was known for looking after himself pretty well and isn't that old by modern standards.
