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...

We’re talking about Harry Brook this week

Harry Brook (via ECB) Well the message is clear: if you want to identify batsmen who will one day go on to play for England, contract a very heavy cold, take time off work and watch a bit of the Under-19 World Cup. You’ll have to endure quite a lot of Alan Wilkins, but at least you’ll also see the future. D Charlton took this course of action earlier this year, reflecting on Harry Brook’s performance that “there was something about [him] that had stardust on it.” Similar conclusions could be ...

Define ‘dibbly-dobbly medium pace’

Paul Collingwood bowling (via YouTube) We all feel that we know it when we see it, but what exactly is dibbly-dobbly medium pace? Is it just non-spin bowling of a certain velocity (less than 75mph, say)? Or is it something more specific than that. When we asked people to identify the greatest dibbly-dobbly medium-pace bowler of all time on Twitter, the vast majority of suggestions were batsmen who bowled a bit. These players were, almost by definition, not particularly effective, so it struck u...

Shoulda, coulda, woulda – five things England got wrong ahead of the 2017-18 Ashes

Australia win the final Test (BT Sport) We were originally going to present this article as being the views of Captain Hindsight, but when we started to write it we realised that half of England’s problems were actually fairly easy to see in advance. So while some of what follows comes with the benefit of knowing how things panned out, that’s not true of all of it. Whether or not the sum of all these things would have made any difference to the end result is of course another matter. Shoulda d...

Is Hardik Pandya the best all-rounder in the world?

One of the problems with asking questions such as this is what time-frame do you use to make your assessment? Performances over the last year, over the last five years, over the last ten years? We’re going make our assessment based on performances over the last 24 hours. This leads us to conclude that yes, Hardik Pandya is indeed the best all-rounder in the world. Emerging with India 76-5 against South Africa, he made 93 off 95 balls. After that, he sauntered in and took 2-17. Best all-rounder o...
