    In Defence of Two Test Series

    Two test series get a lot of criticism on here and in the media. While I don’t think they’re the ideal length for a series I do think said criticism goes too far, so I wanted to put in some kind of defence for them. For a start, in modern times there just isn’t always the time for long test...

    World Cup Transfer Game

    After Hurricane’s successful trading game over the christmas period I thought we could do a similar thing with the World Cup teams, only there’s a slight twist to it. Rather than just trading players, each team will have a transfer budget and be able to buy players off other countries for an...

    Home Advantage

    The mixture of conditions and the difference between playing home and away has always been one of the best things about cricket. But IMO the contrast between sides fortunes home and away has become way too extreme. I haven't really looked at any stats to prove it's an issue which has become...

    World Cup Tipping Comp

    Because for some reason this hasn't been done yet. Will be done like the yearly Premier League tipping. But for those not familiar, will quote Furball from last August. In the case of this, a week will be Monday to Sunday Brazil time. When the knockouts arrive will post the games as they...

    Missing Players XIs

    Seen suggested that before the tournament there should be a 'best of the rest' match where those not picked play a team of the best players who didn't qualify for Brazil. Along with those injured there are a mountain of quality players who won't be going. Who would win if there were a mini...

    Going to be boring and go with Brazil or Argentina to win it. Argentina's attack is terrifying. Don't really know much about their defence other than that it's supposed to be their weakness, but with that attack they may be able to City/Liverpool it. Reckon France could be a dark horse...

    Reshuffle of England's Management?

    Just twitter speculation as of yet, with no sources, but apparently Hugh Morris has quite as managing director of English cricket. With Andy Flower refusing to deny claims his future as coach is over, could we be about to witness a revamp of England's management structure? As I type the...

    England Tour Squad for Australia

    Australia have their "test side for the first test in Australia" thread, so why not have our "squad for Australia" thread. England took 17 players last time, took 18 to India, and I can't see them wanting to reduce their options for the nine FC matches on tour, so we'll say pick 18 names. I've...

    Who do you love more?

    Stuart Broad or Ian Bell? Both national treasures who should be knighted as soon as possible. Both influential in deciding the outcome of the Ashes. Which one do you love more? Tough one for me. After the first two tests it was Bell, but Broad has made me cry with joy this test. Right now...

    *Official* Third Test at Old Trafford

    Discussion around the Third Test at Old Trafford. With David Warner currently 100 and plenty not out against South Africa A, he surely has to come in for Australia, whether it be at the top of the order, or in the middle order. Meanwhile, England are dealing with the possibility of Kevin...
