England v Bangladesh – The Cricket World Cup

I’m going to write this one as I go along battery allowing! (more photos to be added later) Cardiff isn’t a million miles from Bristol, but thankfully it looks like the weather isn’t going to spoil this one! Well, not in a rainy way anyway! I dawdled at my Airbnb and underestimated the walk so was a little late to […]

Pakistan v Sri Lanka

It rained, then it rained some more. Then the sun shone and the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled! But, I had a great day in spite of that, spending time with the delightful Stani Army and catching up with TMS man Dan Norcross! And as an added bonus I saw X Men Dark Phoenix in Cardiff, and […]

Bangladesh v New Zealand – The Cricket World Cup

I’m going to have a go at writing this one during the game: Kane Williamson won toss and put Bangladesh in to bat. (Photos to follow) Sarkar and Tamim opened the batting and both looked comfortable until a Matt Henry ball demolished Sarkar’s stumps! He was out for 25, Bangladesh were 45 for 2 in the 9th over Shakib joined […]

England v Pakistan – The Cricket World Cup

This was my 3rd World Cup Match, but I must write this up before the Bangladesh v South Africa match, which in itself was a special result. (photos to follow) I got to Trent Bridge via the Clifton Park and Tram, it’s a great way to get to the ground, but having chatted for too long at my Airbnb I […]

West Indies v Pakistan – The Cricket World Cup

Where to start with this, my first World Cup game? I’ve been thinking long and hard on my drive home from Trent Bridge. I’ve seen some off the wall innings, performances and moments at Trent Bridge in the last 7 years, enjoying many days watching cricket. I saw a great game between England and India last summer, Virat Kohli scored […]

Saracens v Gloucester – The Premiership Semi-Final

It’s been a funny Premiership season, with the top 2 pretty much cemented early on. The relegation spot wasn’t confirmed until virtually the end of the season, with Newcastle being the team to go down. Gloucester had come through as strong contenders for 3rd place, beating Saracens at Kingsholm during the 6 Nations window, they were deserved winners that Friday […]

England v Pakistan – Headingley

With 15 World Cup matches to go to I need to speed up my writing, so I’m going to see what I can do with this one. No doubt I’ll ramble as per usual though! This was the final match in a 5 ODI series, the first at The Oval had been rained off, well Hailstoned off if that’s a […]

England v Pakistan – Trent Bridge

This was my second attempt at watching England play Pakistan, play had been stopped by Hailstones at the Oval, before play was called off. Pakistan had made 80 in 19 overs which may well have given the problems had play started again under the Duckworth Lewis method. Having sat watching Essex play Notts in positively hot weather it was clear […]

The Royal London Cup – Star Men Watch – the Play Offs

I’m sitting just outside Newcastle, here for the European Rugby, hoping my team, Saracens lift the Champions Cup tomorrow. I listened to BBC Radio 5 Live on the […]

The Royal London Cup – Star Men Watch – Day 16

The final day of the group matches in the Southern league saw Hampshire sitting out, but also sitting pretty at the top of the table with a home semi-final guaranteed. There was all to play for in all 4 games, with 4 teams still in with a shout of a play-off place. There’d been a small twist in the tale […]
