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 […]

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 Australia – The Cricket World Cup

The weather in Taunton has been nothing short of horrendous since I arrived on Sunday! I had a ticket for the match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in Bristol yesterday, but opted for Rocket Man at the cinema instead. That match was abandoned without a ball being bowled, so, good choice! Today the rain, at the moment has decided to […]

England had a change around in the batting order with Jason Roy […]

England v Australia – 5th ODI – Old Trafford

With the single T20 between these 2 teams happening tomorrow I’m going to write this with just a few photos included, then I’ll add more later. 413 runs were scored in this 5th ODI and it was far and away the best of the 4 games I went to. Tim Paine won the toss again, and again elected to bat. […]

Champions Trophy 0

Bangladesh v Australia

Having seen Australia ‘rained off’ at Edgbaston I was hoping for a better day at The Oval. The fact I didn’t get soaked did I suppose mean it was better, but the result for the cricket was to be the same. I was sitting in the new Peter May Stand which meant I was amongst the very passionate and vocal […]

Champions Trophy 2

Australia v New Zealand

Having watched England kick off their Champions Trophy campaign with a win I headed back to my car in Hampstead to drive up to Birmingham for Game 2 between two Southern Hemisphere rivals.  The forecast wasn’t the best and it’s accuracy will make this account more of a Phlog than a Blog. I woke up to the sound of rain […]
