For the Love of County Cricket

A catastrophe at New Road Worcester gave me a happy consequence, an extra day of county cricket in Chelmsford. Warwickshire had moved their game against my team Essex only to be undone by a flood at the lovely Worcestershire ground. With a ticket for the World Cup Final a trip to Worcester wasn’t on the cards, but a 5 minute […]

England V Australia – The Cricket World Cup- Semi-Final

A surprise win by South Africa against Australia meant India finished top of the table rather than Australia. That pitted India against New Zealand. For many Indian fans that was a certain Final spot, but the Blackcaps had other plans and the Final place is theirs. England and Australia would battle each other for the other spot. Edgbaston has been […]

Pakistan v Bangladesh- The Cricket World Cup

A probable last hurrah saw Pakistan and Bangladesh face each other at Lord’s. The MCC had released the news that due to poor take up of tickets by members they were inviting 250 children to sit in the rarified atmosphere of the pavilion. Hopefully the teams would give them a day to remember. Two of the most passionate sets of […]

Pakistan v Afghanistan – The Cricket World Cup

This was the one Pakistan group game I didn’t have a ticket for, I was offered the opportunity to go, but having driven 1700 miles and been away from home for days on end I decided to stay at home. So, for this one I’m going from the TV coverage. Gulbadin Naib won the toss for Afghanistan and elected to […]

Hopes Hanging by a Thread – England v Australia

By: Adarsh Shah Twitter: @shah_adarsh As I close my eyes I am transported back to 20th Feb 2015 in Wellington New Zealand. I was there at one of the lowest points of English ODI history. It was a dismal batting and bowling display by England with Brendon McCullum scoring a record breaking 77 off 25 balls.  Well, I was hoping […]

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 […]

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 […]

(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 […]
