England v Ireland – Day 2

Day 2 of the first test of the summer and Ireland’s first test against England saw the hosts trailing by 122 having been skittled out for 85 on Day 1. We were predicted temperatures of 39 degrees and train journeys from my neck of the woods were due to have difficulties due to melting tracks! I chose to forgo Greater […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

England v South Africa – Lords Test Day 4

I was travelling home from a 6 day holiday in Bruges when this first test of the summer started, England fell to 76 for 4 in the 23rd over, with Alastair Cook out for 3, Keaton Jennings 8, Gary Ballance 20 and a man who’s been a saviour for England so often, Jonny Bairstow out for 10. That was a […]

England v South Africa ODI – Lords

  Nearly a month after this game I’m not going to write a novel, but, the game was attended and the photos taken so I have to post something as much as I’d like to forget this match! This was my first trip of the summer to the Home of Cricket, Lords.  The place has a vibe all of its […]
