Sim Series, Sri Lanka v England, 2nd Test: Team news

With the Sri Lanka v England Test series postponed because of coronavirus, we’re playing out two Test matches between Sri Lanka and England on Cricket Captain 2018’s ‘All-Time Greats’ mode… This is Sim Series. In the wake of England’s big win in the first Test, we asked whether they should be forced to omit players who retired before Sri Lanka ever played a Test match. Most of you said they should. Okay, people were able to respond to the survey multiple times if they wanted ...

Let’s anchor Ollie Pope as a flighty middle-order shotmaker and see where he takes us

Ollie Pope (via Sky Sports) Stereotypes are great. Stereotypes lighten the load on your mind. There has been no time in human history when stereotypes have had any kind of negative impact whatsoever. Fit a new person to an existing internal mental template and you free up a load of thinking time for all the important stuff like ‘what’s for tea?’ and ‘why do Mulder and Scully always wear sensible shoes when there’s a 40 per cent chance they’ll end up in a foot pursuit before the...

Horace Goes Copyright Striking

In the universe of video game mascots, Horace’s star dimmed long ago. Hero of 8-bit hits Hungry Horace and Horace Goes Skiing, he was a shapeless blob with holes for eyes and a flick of hair generally mistaken for a single stunted arm. No official sequels have appeared for decades and few modern players even know his name. But Horace was recently embroiled in controversy after his apparent new owner, a retrogaming entrepreneur, issued copyright strikes against the character’s only YouTube superf...

Chris Woakes has a beard now and that definitely says something although we’re not exactly sure what

Chris Woakes (via TMS Twitter video) Remember when Ian Bell grew an almost-beard? That was a statement if ever there was one. Ian Bell’s beard said, “I am grizzled nowadays. I am a veteran. I am a man.” Gingery and flecked with grey, Bell’s was the facial hair of a cowboy who’d been on the trail for a few days. Bell’s beard had barely eaten and had only washed in an icy river. Bell’s beard was saddle sore. Bell’s beard had killed a man. It wasn’t a beard that reflected...

Let’s rate the ‘serious face’ of every England player in the new trailer for The Edge

The Edge (all images via YouTube) There’s a new trailer for The Edge, the documentary about that England team that got to number one in the world and then fell apart. We had ten questions about the first trailer, but this second one really ramps up the seriousness. NO ENGLAND TEAM FELL HARDER says one of the shouty captions and it’s pretty clear that there’s going to be quite a lot about the psychological challenges of Test cricket in this film. To really pull that off,...

Something truly remarkable might be about to happen and it involves Keaton Jennings

Keaton Jennings (via Channel 5) Remember last week when Joe Denly was picked for England because he happened to be nearby and wasn’t Keaton Jennings? Well it looks like those selection criteria were a little too exacting so they may have to soften them a bit. You may be aware that there are fitness concerns about Foakes, Stokes and Woakes, but let us alert you to the fact that all the time you spend thinking about how their names rhyme was time you didn’t spend thinking about w...

First Test notes: Moeen's Immaculate Disaster

Moeen Ali is a poetic cricketer, a cricketer to watch, and almost everything he does is worth watching. When he has a bad Test, or a bad tour, he accommodates failure in his own way.The first innings in Barbados was a lovely example of this. Advance publicity on Moeen is that the short ball can unsettle him. His instinct is to hook, but he knows that he probably shouldn't, and in going against instinct he has created a problem for himself. When his first delivery from Kemar Roach came flying dow...

The Edge is a 1997 film starring Anthony Hopkins, Alec Baldwin, Elle Macpherson and Bart the Bear, a kodiak bear who also starred in Legends of the Fall among other things (actual fact).

Reflective and renewed, Ian Bell is ready to solve England's No 3 problem

Ian Bell is a man who knows a thing or two about the importance of the number three slot. The Warwickshire man was shunted up to the position at various points during his England career but never truly nailed it down. The list of England number threes in recent years is a lengthy one with only Jonathan Trott looking truly at home in a position that has often proved pivotal in the sport’s longest format.

Shimron Hetmyer just narrowly missed out on making back-to-back hundreds against India

Shimron Hetmyer (via ICC) On Sunday, Shimron Hetmyer made 106 off 78 balls against India. Today he made 94 off 64 balls. We’ve only seen a handful of video clips, but let us tell you that Shimron can unfurl a satisfyingly ludicrous follow-through when the mood takes him. He is 21 years old and we’re sure you’ll agree he promises to be a great deal of fun. The general rule at the minute is that good young batsmen in the weaker teams count double. Pretty much everyone wants to see a bit more fr...
