  1. Can't believe no one's pointed out the obvious pun in the title yet... Probably because no one is "rooting" for England. Except their captain.
  2. Well I hope you're right. I am really looking forward to that series and hope it will be close. I agree that SA, having watched them in England recently, are nothing special. The series could rest on the fitness and form of Steyn imo. If he's fit and found his mojo by then SA are favourites. If not I fancy India.
  3. I was looking forward to your SA series before this game. For some reason I expected you to suddenly be competent in swinging conditions! Reckon Pujara will be out on his own in that series. Then you'll probably have worked it out by the England tour!
  4. This was a non-story the first time. Why would a Russian know who any cricketer was? There are enough people even in countries where cricket is played that have no interest in the game and wouldn't recognise a cricketer. Like the two gay guys who Stokes was allegedly defending who only realised who he was a month after the incident.
  5. Will Pak v Ind tests ever match the Ashes?

    Yorkshire first, England second ;)
  6. Will Pak v Ind tests ever match the Ashes?

    Well how can we possibly find out if you never play each other? I've never watched an Ind-Pak Test match, the last one was before I discovered the joy of watching neutral matches. I would love to watch and India-Pakistan Test match.
  7. We're all resigned to the inevitable thrashing here, well most of us are anyway. The Brexiteers are still confident, telling us realists to "stop talking the country down", just like they do when anyone questions them on the car crash of leaving the EU. Not looking forward to waking up on the cold, dark winter mornings to tales of woe from down under. Fortunately I can't watch as I don't subscribe to the BT Sports channel who will be showing the games. Looking forward to the NZ tour later in the winter which ideally would be a closer series, but I expect our little flowers will be mentally shot by then. Shame we can't just sack off the Ashes, hand the Convicts the urn without having to go through the pain, and have a full winter in NZ.
  8. Shastri wearing a full playing uniform. Seriously?
  9. Am I right in thinking this venue is like India's Cardiff? It rains all the time and cricket isn't that popular in the area.
  10. I want some decent neutral cricket to take my attention away from the upcoming Ashes disaster. This isn't it.
  11. FIFA U-17 WC : India 2017

    An England team in a world tournament final in Kolkata. Sounds familiar. Prediction: England to be leading in the 85th minute, then Spain to score four late goals to win with the same Spain player scoring all four. And we'll "remember the name" of whoever scores the four goals
  12. Biggest Shocks of 2017 in Cricket

    Essex winning the County Championship is up there.
  13. ICC approves Test Championship, ODI league

    I'll believe it when I see it.
  14. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    Yep that needs to go as well. No sign of the ECB seeing sense on that one though. IMO it's part of their plan to permanently damage county cricket (in all formats) in favour of city based teams, which will eventually compete on all forms. Call me paranoid but...
  15. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    Just came to see if the ridiculous neutral ground thing had been scrapped and pleased to see that it has. To an extent at least.
