Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 03-05-2019

Anything related to Cricket, including county country and village, please post here, Ashes we have a separate thread to take the mic at the Aussies (fingers crossed) 

Just listening to the ODI against Ireland and the Irish are giving us a lesson in cricket.


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 03-05-2019

Phew, Foakes and Curran to rescue.

A banana skin avoided, bring on the Aussies


RE: Cricket Thread - Bones14 - 03-05-2019

So this ones for us Aussies to take the piss out of you pommy gimps. I like, I like it a lot.


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 04-05-2019

Damm.....I was hoping it would be the other way round Bonesy, but you never know.
You can also post about Grade 1 cricket here, I remember one lad from our club went to Oz to play and he didn't cut the mustard over there etc...


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 11-05-2019

What a game today, Pakistan came close to winning this


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 14-05-2019

Well looks like Pakistan will post a big total. I am heading home to watch our boys play this


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 14-05-2019

Looking comfortable now but I do think the fasting has depleted the energy of this Pakistan team. (that is if they are fasting)

Roll on world cup and Ashes


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 15-05-2019

RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 17-05-2019

Well can England win this game


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 17-05-2019

My best starting X! for England


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 25-05-2019

Warm up game against the auld enemy, we have a decent score to chase

Bairstow gone, is this worth losing I wonder, as I don't want anyone to get injured


RE: Cricket Thread - Undertaker - 30-05-2019

World cup has started and we need to score more than 300 as SA ain't no mugs

England had to work hard for 311 there.  Not that many boundaries.

I thought South Africa bowling was very smart, and used the conditions fully and it was very hard to get any runs so we done very good to get 300, and I think the smartest thing England done was copy South African's way of bowling and it worked. 

A very tactical game, and a very special performance from Stokesy, who if continues like this will be known as god.

Yeah it was a good watch.  England look to have a decent side.  I used to watch lots of cricket but kind of lost interest a bit.  Enjoyed it yesterday although didn't get to see much of south Africa's innings due to work.

I dunno, it sounds kind of good mate Smile  Apart from rugby, never been into that.  I went to a football/cricket school, never understood rugby that well.

I went to school which had all three sports, I was shit in football, so got roped into Rugby, not that I was any good, but they needed me to make the numbers up. Cricket I was good

Are you watching this game?  Pakistan don't like the fast bowlers  Smile

You would think, an international player can play a short ball.....well playing short ball is a skill, and Pakistan are really struggling. 

Easy win for W indies in the end. I was listening to it as I am working, so will be a quick highlight tonight. 

I do fancy W indies to reach Semi or even final.....as everyone is talking of Aus/IND/Eng/ SA or NZ, W indies are the surprise pack i think
