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...

Did you see Dom Sibley’s face when Zak Crawley palmed that catch straight up?

The image above is Zak Crawley not-quite-catching Anrich Nortje a split second before catching Anrich Nortje. It was a very fun moment because these kinds of parried catches always are. We’ve done a thing about them for Cricket 365. Please go and read it. If you want proof of how exciting parried catches are, just look at Dom Sibley’s face. Dom Sibley seems to have quite an expressive face. We hope Dom Sibley’s face has a long and distinguished Test career. Re...

What do you look for when buying a Cricket Bat?

Cricketers across the world have a tough choice to make when choosing cricket bats resulting in various questions being asked before they make a purchase that could be the difference between a good and bad season. Which bat do I go for? Do grains make a difference? Which brand is the best? What is a sweet spot? Many of these questions run through a cricketer’s head before they make a decision – some think about these more than others. The revolution of cricket bats came with the experimentatio...

It’s not Shaun Marsh’s fault that he’s good enough to play Test cricket for Australia

Shaun Marsh being good enough to play for Australia (BT Sport) Australia have dropped Shaun Marsh. Again. The news was met with plenty of that particular brand of rejoicing where people look really sour-faced and say: “About time.” We’ve an inkling that the main problem with Marsh is that he’s good enough to play for Australia in the first place. Marsh averages 34.31 in Test cricket and everyone in Australia says that’s not good enough for a specialist batsman. But they’...

Chanderpaul on the Unique Art of Batting

Most sports people get the chance to immediately put their mistakes right. Nobody remembers, for example, that Andy Murray surrendered a 40-0 lead as he served for his first Wimbledon title in 2013 before eventually overcoming Novak Djokovic. Nor is it now relevant that Sergio Aguero squandered two good goal scoring chances against QPR before stealing the Premier League title in stoppage time for Manchester City in 2012. Similarly , when Andrew Flintoff d...

Is an Australia player going to say ‘records are made to be broken’?

At the time of writing, Australia have made a solid start to chasing 400-and-plenty to win against Pakistan after losing ten wickets for 60 runs in their first innings. We can’t at this point say what we expect the situation to be at the close of play, but it seems highly likely it will be a time for wide-eyed optimism. The very best form of wide-eyed optimism is when teams are chasing very big fourth innings targets and play ends for the day and everyone takes stock and loses all perspective. ...
