ODI Series: England 0-0 Sri Lanka

England 2-0 Sri Lanka: Done & Dusted, With History Made

England 1-0 Sri Lanka: A Story of Dominance… So Far

It’s always fun to be a supporter of England, isn’t it? Disastrous in the World Cup, show up Australia in the Ashes, convincingly beaten by Pakistan and now, in the first test against Sri Lanka, decimating them in just three days, winning by an innings and 88 runs. Can’t beat a bit of consistency. Still, England will be thrilled with … Continue reading

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

South Africa vs. England, One Day Internationals: Can the visitors win today?

With the fourth ODI starting as we type this blog, England could win the series by the end of the day. That, or hosts South Africa could level things up with one day to go.

Ben Stokes Goes On and on and on and…

So, Ben Stokes. Certainly must’ve been difficult to play against him in the P.E. ground. In the still ongoing test between South Africa and England (which England have already won, BTW… spoiler alert.), it was all about day 2 of the second test. Nope, they didn’t bowl out their opponents for just 60 runs (sorry Australia…) – but Ben Stokes caused chaos … Continue reading

Outclassed: Pakistan 2-0 England

Last Chance Saloon: Can England Salvage Anything?

What was a very fun, interesting and wild Ashes series seems quite some distant memory now for England. In their 3-test series against Pakistan, each have gone to the wire… and delivered a bad end result for the visitors. In the first test, their attempts to play chase against both Pakistan and lighting came close but to no avail – … Continue reading
