Essex v India Day 1

And so the Superstars of India Cricket arrived at the Cloudfm County Ground in Chelmsford to play a warm up match against Essex.  The game was due to be played over 4 days but that was reduced to 3 once the visitors had arrived in town.  Hugely disappointing for those who’d planned to come along on Day 4, the Saturday.

England v India 2nd ODI – Lord’s

The ODI series moved on to the Home of Cricket, could England find their mojo and even up the series?  A man who’d been out of sorts would make sure they did.  To put the ‘moaning’ about Joe Root into perspective, in the 7 ODI’s he’d played in before this one, he scored 136 runs  with a top score of […]

England v India T20 Bristol

Lots of photos for this one, especially of Rohit Sharma The mini road trip to watch England play India took my friend Monica and I to the County Ground at Bristol for the 3rd and decisive T20 between the 2 teams.  We chose to use the Park and Ride which worked really well going but was something of a disaster […]

England v India – T20 – Cardiff

My cricket schedule means I’ve fallen behind on writing, here’s hoping I can keep up with the test matches!   This was the second of three T20’s to start this series between England and India, India had won the first game at Old Trafford in an atmosphere that was more akin to a home game for them.  The weather in […]

The Women’s World Cup Final – England v India

The problem with watching so much cricket, if I can call it a problem is that I struggle to keep up with writing about it.  I’ve come home today after a week away watching England play at Old Trafford and Essex at Scarborough.  Essex managed to beat Yorkshire by 8 wickets in 2 days so I find myself with a […]

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 […]
