Where's Alex Tudor?
This is another "whatever happened to?". Other posts here have pointed to concerns over our attack in the Caribbean. I'm no fan of Tudor's but he might be a horses for courses pick for...

Hussain should go now
Before the WI tour. He never was good enough, he certainly isnt good enough now, Collingwood should get the call and leave Hussain at home to be bitter there. me

D.R. (David) Smith RIP
Very sorry to learn of the death of David Smith, former Glos and England fast medium bowler, at the comparatively early age of 69. Like his current county name-sake, Mike, he was a rel...

Batting to blame
So England utterly thrashed in Colombo. They've been outplayed in all three games and the better side (on these pitches) won. They did well to bat out for draws in the first two game...

Third test
Tea time on day four and England looking at defeat by an innings and plenty. Fair enough, given that Sri Lanka have consistently outplayed us even though nowhere near at their best throughou...

Typical English player.Looks promising at the start and within a year becomes a liability(and gets injured three times a month,like Harmison,Jones,Hoggard etc.etc.)

Most over-rated England XII
Reading through the all-time worst XI's earlier got me wondering about England players whose reputation far exceeds their deeds. Obvious candidates, for me, are Emburey, Tufnell, Flintoff, ...

A Bit More Cardus
For Sid. In return, he'll write a report of the Singapore RSC meet we held this evening, and kick off the annual awards ceremony. Anyway, this piece apparently originally appeared in t...

England eke out another fighting draw, two in a row, which they can't have done for a while; one of the two really special batsmen in the game makes a big score; Ntini keeps on improving; in...

GregC: This is one of the weakest periods for bowling in a long, long time
+++++ Iím not going to criticise the modern-day players... The batting certainly has improved, because batsmen have become more positive, thanks to the one-day game... Itís probably a r...

I've watched Muralitheran closely during the last test, and I can't honestly say I've seen him bowl a single legitimate delivery. It's so obvious, particularly in slow motion that his arm st...
