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 ...

Thailand are playing in the T20 World Cup this week

Thai cricket (via YouTube) Have you ever been to Thailand? Thailand’s great. We had garlic prawns on an island called Ko Jum and it was pretty much a 50-50 ratio of those two main ingredients. We did some other stuff too, but that’s the first thing we remember. Top work on the garlic prawns, Thailand. There are 10 teams in the T20 World Cup, which starts tomorrow, and Thailand are one of them. The general feeling is that they probably will not win a match and so obviously the m...

Five lost England Test cricketers of the 2010s

Haseeb Hameed (via YouTube) In another universe, these five cricketers are the backbone of the England Test team. A handful of players make it in Test cricket. Others get picked and aren’t good enough. Then there are the weird ones; the ones who get a few games, look the business and then for some weird reason or another disappear again when you were absolutely convinced that they’d become fixtures in the side. Here are five players who seemed for all the world like they we...

Monty Panesar was on Celebrity Mastermind and it did not go well

Monty Panesar on Mastermind (iPlayer) We love Monty Panesar – absolutely love him – but his Celebrity Mastermind appearance was not a triumph. The pressure clearly got to him during the general knowledge round and he appeared to lose the ability to comprehend English sentences. What followed was a sort of word association exercise where Monty blurted out whatever happened to be passing through his brain each time John Humphrys stopped talking. Monty gave some very fine wr...

Ten important questions after watching the trailer for that new England documentary ‘The Edge’

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). It is a lost-in-the-wilderness-getting-hunted-by-a-kodiak-bear film. The Edge is also going to be a 2019 documentary about the last England team that got to number one in the world but then fell apart. You can watch the trailer here. Here are ten important questions that arise after wat...

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...

Jimmy Anderson gave a lion’s view of Virat Kohli

Lion (Wikimedia Commons licensed by Kevin Pluck) “If a lion could talk, we could not understand him,” wrote Ludwig Wittgenstein. The point being our feline friend would probably be rambling on about how he’d happened across some other lion’s urine earlier in the day and his specific concerns about this patch of piss would mean nothing to you. Lions live in a world with different norms, values and preoccupations – and so do fast bowlers. Ask Jimmy Anderson for his opinion on a particular batsman...

Pakistan to Manchester

Manchester was home for me between 2009 and 2011 and while I spent two magnificent years in the city, I was quite disappointed when England did not schedule a test, or for that matter neither an ODI or a T20I, at Old Trafford during Pakistan's tour in 2010. I did manage to watch a couple of T20 games between England and Australia at Old Trafford and also made my way down to London on the weekends to catch a few days play at Lords and Oval in 2010, I feel like I missed out not watching Pakistan ...

County cricket – live!

• Will Macpherson at Surrey v Middlesex and Mike Selvey at Northants v Kent• County cricket: the week’s final over 11.05am BST I notice Selve mentions Adam Rossington’s glovework. I covered Northants’ rather dispiriting defeat to Essex a few weeks ago and was very struck by his work with the bat and gloves. He counter-attacked brilliantly, and has all the strokes, but there was a quite incredible legside stumping off the seamers which really stuck in the memory. Unlike some of his team-mates...

Monty Panesar’s back!

As in ‘returned’. He hasn’t got anklosing spondylitis or anything. Like many people, we have a soft spot for Monty Panesar. Firstly, he lent his name to our assistant. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, he was for a time exceptionally good at bowling spin for England. Now he’s back. Back at Northamptonshire at any rate. He also hopes that he’s pretty much back to himself after being blighted by paranoia and other mental health problems in recent years. There was that bladder control thing...
