Evil v Good, day 4: Match skitters to a conclusion

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. England made 202 runs and lost four wickets on day three. It was very boring and far and away their most successful day. Australia still lead by six runs. Paul Collingwood and Andy Flintoff are at the crease. Morning session Don’t get ahead of yourselves. Darren Gough is batting at eight. Flintoff batted quite zes...

Evil v Good, day 3: England’s best day so far

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. Taken in isolation, day two was less rubbish than day one. However, the nature of Test cricket is that it cannot be taken in isolation, so in fact day two compounded day one such that we arrive here at day three in an even worse position than yesterday morning. England are 19-0 and 208 runs behind. That’s pretty much where yo...

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...

The Realm’s England XI – 5. Paul Collingwood

We’re picking an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most. In 2017 we launched a campaign for Paul Collingwood to be included in England’s Ashes squad. No-one was more surprised than us that we’d ended up feeling that strongly about him. There are definitely two ends to the cricketers-who-we-love continuum. There are the cricketers who we loved from the very start and maybe the shine wore off a little bit towards the end, and then there are the players who we didn’t n...

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 ...

Tom Curran insists England aren’t shaken by first ODI thrashing

Tom Curran was reluctant to accept England‘s under-strength side had been shaken by their seven-wicket defeat to South Africa as the tourists plot a way back into the series at Durban.In their first one-day international since winning last year’s World Cup, an England team showing a raft of changes from the one that defeated New Zealand in the Lord’s final were outclassed at Cape Town.England are likely to keep any changes for the penultimate match of the series to a minimum and Curran is confid...

Chris Silverwood will appoint Paul Collingwood as England cricket looks to keep it in the family

One of Chris Silverwood's first steps as England head coach will be to appoint Paul Collingwood as a full-time member of a backroom team with a strong English identity. Collingwood has worked with England on a contractual basis for the past 12 months but had to apply for a full-time role advertised in August. Silverwood will also look to appoint a full-time bowling coach, a position left vacant after his own promotion, but this is unlikely to happen until after the New Zealand tour next mon...

A Middlesex Second XI v Lancashire Second XI match report (from 2016)

Ged writes: The best laid plans, eh? My plan for the day was to have a real tennis lesson at 10am and stay to watch the finale of the Middlesex v Durham match. But Middlesex decided to bring an end to those proceedings the day before. Plan B. Real tennis lesson at 10am, then scoot from Lord’s to Radlett to catch at least two sessions of dinky-doos play there (Editor: We have no idea what this means, but sometimes it’s just better to publish and hope that no-one uncovers your ignorance than actu...

You can probably gauge the worth of Paul Collingwood from that time he was an umpire

Paul Collingwood excelled at all those aspects of cricket which are undervalued; all the ones that are hard to measure; stuff like fielding and unearthing singles that have no right to be taken. Because of this, he was one of our heroes when he retired from international cricket and he’s not exactly dropped in our estimation since then, playing on for Durham through thick and thin and thinner and thinner still. Now he’s retiring completely. We’ve nothing left to say about Colly’s cricket. We in...

Is it right that Jos Buttler won a Test spot without playing first-class cricket?

Let’s take a look at how Test teams are picked and whether runs in other formats are relevant. We’ll begin with a quick bit of background. A quick bit of background Doing well at one-day cricket for England used to be a common way of getting into the Test team. Players like Paul Collingwood and Andrew Strauss did well in coloured clothing and then effectively got promoted. Somewhere along the line, things changed. Broadly coinciding with the IPL getting bigger and more influential, cricket i...
