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.

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...

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

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.

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
