Evil v Good, day 2: Australia capitalise

We’re pitting an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most against an Antagonists XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode. Day one was a colossal and predictable catastrophe for England. Australia resume on 50-1. Morning session Jimmy Anderson opens the bowling and Matthew Hayden hits him for four. Steve Harmison bowls to Ricky Ponting at the other end. Harmy appeals for LBW against Hayden but it pitched about a foot outside leg. Tha...

Evil v Good, day 1: England fail to impose themselves

We’re pitting an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most against an Antagonists XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode. Before we start, it’s worth having a very quick Sim Series recap because a lot of these players have already played this format. We’ve played two 1990s-est Ashes Tests (and let’s be honest, this is a very similar thing again). Notable performances from those matches include Graeme Hick top scoring in both innings of the first m...

Even the mere *idea* of playing for Yorkshire seems to have helped Dawid Malan. Somehow

Dawid Malan (via Sky Sports) Dawid Malan is the Ann Veal of English cricket. For a man who deploys a W so ostentatiously, he’s weirdly easy to overlook. Malan has an Ashes hundred to his name and he’s also made England’s fastest T20 hundred, but still there’ll be people saying, “Dawid Malan – which one’s he?” He’s the one who plays for Yorkshire. Malan’s comments about leaving Middlesex earlier this week were slightly odd. “I’ve been captain for two years and I’ve bee...

England have hired a Yorkshireman as coach and no-one’s really noticed

Chris Silverwood – true or false? (via ECB video) England have promoted Chris Silverwood to head coach. No-one’s really acknowledging it because he was coaching Essex before he joined the England setup, but Chris Silverwood is from Yorkshire. Is that significant? Of course it’s significant. England at one point hired straight-talking, no-nonsense Yorkshire stereotype Ray Illingworth as chairman of selectors/coach/’supremo’ (he said it frustrated him he couldn’t captain the team...

Let us tell you about Jason Roy from England’s World Cup squad

Still taken from Sky Sports Jason Roy is originally from South Africa and he hits the ball very hard. The similarities with Kevin Pietersen don’t end there either – he also has the same shaped mouth. There the similarities pretty much do end. The noteworthy ones anyway. There are two versions of Jason Roy and England’s World Cup hopes to a great extent hinge on which one turns up. Jason Roy 1 is a man who hits the ball back past the bowler and scores very quickly without any re...

India v Australia, Adelaide 2018, Day 3

I watched most of India's batting on the 3rd day after waking up early on Saturday morning to do so. When I went to sleep on Friday night, I feared that Australia might still be batting, with Mitchell Starc and Travis Head doing their best impression of Jason Gillespie and Steve Waugh. But India earned lead of 15, which, from 127/6 still meant that the last 4 Australian wickets added 108.Murali Vijay played as though he knows he is keeping the spot warm for Prithvi Shaw. KL Rahul played like a l...

More Ashes Notes: Boycott versus Engel; Bluffborough; Cleaned Out

There is an outtake from Death of a Gentleman, just a minute or so of footage knocked off by whoever had the camera outside the Oval after a Test match, a fraction of the many hours that ended up in the pixellated digital scrapyard once known as the cutting room floor.It shows Geoffrey Boycott crossing the road, wheeling his suitcase behind him. His back is to camera, but the figure is unmistakable: immaculately dressed; panama hat tilted just so. People surround him, shout his name, follow him....

Jason Roy wants England to be worse at one-day cricket

Still taken from Sky Sports It’s happened again. Jason Roy wants to do things that will make England worse at cricket. Ahead of the World T20, Roy appeared to lose sight of his role at the top of the order, which we likened to tinder. He said he wanted to give himself time, apparently unaware that any time he took would have to be stolen from his team-mates. Similarly, talking about the 50-over game this week, he said: “I want to be that solid guy at the top of the order. Yes, quick 50s and 60s...
