Could a Day-Night Test be heading England’s way?

Last year, you may remember Australia hosted New Zealand in what became the first ever day-night test, in the attempt to attract larger crowds to the stadiums, and with a peak-time for TV audiences boost figures there as well. Of course you remember. How can you forget the pink cricket ball? They’ll be doing it at least once again at … Continue reading

Shane Warne: Jungle Capers

A few months ago in the UK, we were treated to the annual series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – where the likes of Vicky Pattison, George Shelley and Kieron Dyer took part in the lifestyle of the jungle outback in Australia. Last year however saw Australia themselves finally beginning the format, taking their celebrities to a … Continue reading

Perhaps Batting DOES Make 100 Problems?

Controversy? Welcome to cricket and the One Day Internationals! Let’s paint the picture, for those who missed it: Ben Stokes – with the stonker of a catch in the fourth test of The Ashes last month – in defense or purposely – attempts to re-enact the moment but at the wrong time by stopping the ball with his left hand as … Continue reading

Giving the Aussies a Hell of a Beating: New Designs In Store!

The Ashes 2015 is over, with England winning the Ashes back 3-2. While the overall score looks rather balanced, it’s safe to say the margin of victories have been… well, absolutely dominant. Which got us wondering… especially watching that fourth test which will surely become historic over time, what would the Australian legends have thought of it? Dennis Lillee, Shane … Continue reading

The Ashes 2015: The Day Pomicide Was Committed

August 6th, 2015. A date, probably second only to August 8th, 2015, that England Cricket fans won’t forget for a long time from this year. While England regained that Ashes on the 8th, it was the first day of the fourth test that will go down in history for an unbelievable day of cricket.

The Ashes 2015: England 3-1 Australia (England Win The Ashes)

Well there you have it. 40 minutes in to the 3rd day and it was all over. An inning and 78 runs, England regained The Ashes with the score at 3-1. Worse still for Australia, is there’s still one test match left in the series. It’s not even over… What a game it was, too. We’ve already looked over the opening … Continue reading

The Ashes 2015: England 2-1 Australia

We did have a weekend full of Cricket planned… and then Edgbaston happened. This series couldn’t get more topsy-turvy if we even tried. It started with England putting their pre-Ashes form to good use, taking Australia by surprise before Australia came back and simply annihilated England with a 405 run victory in the second test. So, midway through, one apiece, things … Continue reading

The Ashes 2015: England 1-1 Australia

Well, then. That was certainly something by Australia. The question was how would the World Champions respond after losing the opening test by 169 runs? Answer: Pure and utter annihilation of the England side to thrash them by a stonking 405 runs. In fact, combining both innings for each team, Australia managed to rack up 820 runs, losing 10 wickets (declaring … Continue reading

The Ashes 2015: England 1-0 Australia

There won’t be a whitewash for Australia this time round then. At Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, it took England just four days to see off the World Champions by 169 runs, meaning a first test win for England since the fourth test of the 2013 Ashes Test. While the Aussies were much closer to England on performance in the second … Continue reading

The Ashes 2015: Two Days Down…

…and 23 (hopefully!) still to go. Brilliant, isn’t it? So as we write this, before day three kicks off, it’s England leading the way right now with a lead of 166 runs after their first innings of 430 all out, while Australia have looked impressive with a run of 264-5. That being said, the World Champions will be looking for … Continue reading
