    England players and selection discussion thread

    My prediction for 1st Test XI Lees, Crawley, Root, Pope, Lawrence, Stokes, Foakes, Woakes, C Overton, Broad, Anderson (12th man : Mahmood)

    Curtly Ambrose vs Dale Steyn

    Random point here, but does anyone else think Steyn would have dominated batting line-ups in the 90s? I absolutely think he would have done! There were some great world-class batsman in that era, but (apart from Australia) I don't think there were collectively any great batting sides. My gut...

    County Cricket 2022

    Shaheen Shah Afridi is just an incredible cricketer and so very likeable! Has all the attributes to be one of the ATG's. What a coup for Middlesex! He hits a clean ball as well. Won't be surprised to seeing him being a capable lower-order batsman long-term

    England players and selection discussion thread

    Sam Cook would be a really good option for this coming summer imo. Just from watching him quite often, he looks an excellent new ball bowler. He definitely looks like he could make early inroads at test level and trouble good batsman. Super consistent, repeatable well-grooved action and moves it...

    Joe Root resigns as captain

    Yeah thats fair. The only circumstances I could see the ECB justify this is by saying Broad wasn't dropped for the Windies tour, but that it was used as a rebuild and 'to look at other options' for when he retires. I don't necessarily agree with this (hypothetical) stance, but I do think Broad...

    Joe Root resigns as captain

    Think Broad will have it short-term and Lees will be the longer-term captain next year. Can also see Foakes being a left-field choice but think that's extremely slim

    Fantasy Draft - Women's World Cup 2022

    Yeah I don't think McGrath is a great bowler (yet). Reminds me a bit of Shane Watson actually. Keeps it tight, a partnership breaker while having the ability to take big hauls on occasions Definitely a big talent but a quiet tournament for her. Not that it really mattered a jot!

    Australian domestic season 2021/22

    Think Will Sutherland is a bolter to dayboo in the test arena next Australian summer. Like the look of him

    Be nice if Tahlia can put in a big performance. Quiet tournament for her

    *Official* Women's World Cup 2022

    This Australian women's team is vile, absurd levels of depth and quality Can think of half a dozen players on the outside (Villani, Redmayne, Carey, Harris, Wellington, Strano) who would walk into most other nations XI

    *Official* Women's World Cup 2022

    Good observation that. Lanning=Ponting and Gardner=Symonds. Mooney gives me Mike Hussey vibes in her ability to marshal a chase and close out a game and Tahlia McGrath definitely has a bit of a golden arm like a certain Shane Watson The comparisons are eerily similar I agree

    Just comes across as a class human being really. All-round good egg

    *Official* Women's World Cup 2022

    Australia look quite flat out here. I mean, there's nothing much riding on this game, and they're probably trying out combinations, but they look a little off. Can't help but feel that Darcie Brown is crucial to making early breakthroughs. I'm sure that's she in their best XI but rested...

    Fantasy Draft - Women's World Cup 2022

    Yeah those were only just a few players who've really stood out for me, but I absolutely agree with the others players you've mentioned and your observations. Cross definitely goes under the radar a bit alongside Brunt and Shrubsole who are much more established. She's an excellent stump to...

    Saqib Mahmood - The Thread

    He's very good. Really should have been blooded sooner in all honesty. He was in the squad in New Zealand pre-Covid

    Fantasy Draft - Women's World Cup 2022

    Things are taking shape nicely. It's been a good tournament so far (quite unpredictable) and I expect a few surprises as the group stages come to a conclusion next week. Australia and South Africa are looking very good while India really need to life their game. And can England make a late dash...

    I know! Shame. Hit a lovely boundary earlier in the over but that paddle sweep brought upon her downfall

    Good period this for NZ. Sattherwaite and Green rotating nicely

    Very impressed with Dean. She has great fundamentals as an off spinner
