Champions Trophy 6

My Top Cricket Photos in 2017

I watched a lot of cricket this Summer and took thousands of photos, I can’y whittle them down to 10 is so am going to share these with you, trying to add in the player, date, venue and teams playing. Staring with the Champions Trophy, where I was lucky to see 7 games including the Final Mark Wood – The […]

Champions Trophy 0

India v South Africa

Match 6 of my Champions Trophy watching gave me the chance to see 2 of the best teams in the world for a second time.  I was hoping both would play to their potential.  Amazingly the trains from Chelmsford were working which gave me quite a nice day trip albeit with an early start.  The weather forecast was good, but […]

India v Sri Lanka

Match 5 of my Champions Trophy took me back to the Oval, I was very excited to be watching Virat Kohli and his India.  I’d watched them play test cricket in England in 2014 and knew I would be watching a very different team.  Virat Kohli has in the intervening years become one of the very best cricketers in the […]

Getting to […]

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 […]

England v Bangladesh

Having been at Lords to see England’s horror show against South Africa I was looking forward to a good game of cricket at the Oval in the opening Champions Trophy match.  I’d only received 2 tickets through the ICC ballot, including the final, but access as a Surrey and England member and persistence with the site meant I’ve ended up […]
