Crapshack tournament finally has a good match. Aided and abetted by butter fingers galore.

    Rumour doing the rounds that the CB40 is being cancelled. Can't give any definite sources yet.

    It only took a couple of weeks to get a watchable 2020. Good match. England will get Gayled

    Sandeep Patil is our new chairman of Selectors
    http://www.thehindu.com/sport/cricket/patil-appointed-selection-panel-head-amarnath-sacked/article3942121.ece

    Surprised tbh, and relieved that we've finally gotten rid of that twit Srikkanth. Also, thank flip we didn't have to see another cricketer dad in Roger Binny take the chairman of selectors. Aniruddha Srikkanth is torturous enough.

    Saba Karim for the east, sound choice.

    what cost Mohinder Amarnath then? Maybe too outspoken and headline mongering?

    WI bowling has never been utterly convincing and the same can be said for the English batting..

    Seems like we have a proper game on today..

    Also Lasith Malinga is a once in a lifetime bowler and I think he even deserves to be congratulated with a chapeau.. so chapeau Lasith :tu

    Nah, West Indies have bowlers who can bowl 50mph. Enough to beat England.

    As for Malinga, don't rate him. Good for mickey mouse stuff but chickened out of the real cricket. Not great when reqd RR is not in the factor. Vaas is still the Lankan ledge.

    What is it, 3 matches, 14 balls and 4 runs for the English opening partnership? Cost them this match, and will again when needed.

    Very true..  :)

    But what in the world is Morgan doing at No.5...  >:(
    He is and has always been England's best Limited overs batsmen and to put him in a position where the game may already be out of our hands  ::)

    Also lots of inexperience at the top of the order, probably more so than any other team at the top of the order... so having an experienced batsmen like Morgan up there would help...

    And Kieswetter may be pretty talented but he has to go, not consistent enough and you need someone who can get you runs at the top of the order more often than not..

    Windies bowlers were clever and they are all useful but when Badree goes for only 20 (or something like that) then you know that something is up. Against a better team as has been shown previously then they could get punished, a side full of Morgans would have decimated this bowling lineup..

    God only knows and he ain't saying.  To compound matters, Bairstow then batted far too slowly.  Morgan needs to face as many balls as possible for England to get anywhere near winning this tournament, and at the moment, the whole team seams completely out of kilter.  Imbalanced, tactically naive etc. 

    Thank heavens the team spirit is good. Just imagine a team challenging for wins with no team spirit.

    Are you questioning the decision to bowl Samit Patel to Chris Gayle in full flow?


    Some county transfers news-
    Saj Mahmood been released
    Yorkshire favourites to sign the headbanded heart throb Jack Brooks
    Solanki's off to Surrey
    Spriegel to Northants
    Northants may also lose Niall O'Brien as Leicester want a keeper to replace that weed Nixon

    And in other news, Tasmania have nominated themselves for the shambolic performance of the year as the exceptional quartet of Smiff, Haddin, Copeland and Henriques scored fifty plus. With Haddin and not so Moises scoring hundreds (114,161)

    Knew this for a few days, but had to post the day before he signed for Yorkshire :fp

    As for Key sweater, he's not an international cricketer. Been sh*t for too long to hope anything great will happen. Look sh*te is just that. Eh, why do the South Africans fail you when you need them?

    You know that you're not good enough when England can score 20 runs off you in 4 overs of spin.

    And that is it, game over with an edge...  :(
    Was hoping for SA, but Akmal and Gul deserved it. Unlucky Kabloemski, but Pakistan's spin bowlers seem to have given SA a bit of the English jitters, maybe it is contagious considering that the Saffers just came from England?  :P

    Now onto the Ryder cup, still trying to get my head around foursomes.. :-[

    Foursomes= One ball for each team and alternate shots
    Four balls= a ball for each player and better score taken into consideration

    And the most basic is you win holes not strokes.

    All right...

    Seems like there is very little red to be found on the scoreboard at the moment :woohoo

    Stricker plays a good shot out of the bunker though, hopefully wont allow the Americans the momentum back.

    Very early days, but Europe would desperately want to lead early on in the foursome and four balls. The American singles are good.

    Good rescue by Westwood Molinari. One of the worst possible bunker lies to have the ball below the feet.
