The Bob Willis Trophy – Round 5

Lots has happened cricket wise since Round 4 of this summer’s red ball County Cricket competition. Not least the arrival of the Australians for a white ball only tour. Australia somehow managed to lose the first T20 from an unassailable position. They didn’t hit a boundary from the 14th over until the 3rd ball of the 20th! Dawid Malan had […]

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 […]

The Royal London Cup – Star Men Watch – Day 12

There were 3 matches today, I was at The Oval to watch the match between the 2 teams trying not to finish bottom of the Southern table. I then went to the theatre, which means I’m writing this close to midnight, so it should be brief! Lancashire 239 for 6 v Derbyshire 209 for 7 Harvey Hosein won the toss […]

The Royal London Cup – Star Men Watch – Round 4

Today I surprised myself by choosing to stay at home with my daughter who’s visiting from Paris rather than going to the Oval to watch Surrey v Essex. That meant I kept track online and missed out on what proved to be a low scoring game. There was no cricket yesterday, on Easter Monday, today on a working day there […]

Middlesex v Kent

Having worked out that the match I’d planned to watch with my friend Alun was actually in Mansfield rather than Trent Bridge, we booked to go to Radlett to watch Kent (a team I have a soft spot for) against Middlesex (a team Alun has a soft spot for): my second visit in 4 days.  It was a perfect venue […]
