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

Well, that was pretty much a one-sided affair. England have already wrapped up the test series against Sri Lanka, winning the second match by nine wickets (having won the previous by an innings and 88 runs). There’s still a game left to go, as well. Having been out for 91, 119 and 101, Sri Lanka finally found their gears and went forwards … Continue reading

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

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

When Cricket Goes Wrong: India vs. South Africa Second Test

Sometimes it just doesn’t go your way in life. Must’ve been how both India and South Africa felt when they hardly got to play any cricket for their second test match. Instead of a blog about how great the play was, or how the results could’ve affected the motivation of each side… basically the only major talking point is a … Continue reading

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

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
