  1. India Under 19 team's tour of England

    Game on Wednesday is televised on sky sports for those interested.
  2. Jadeja suspended for Pallekele Test

    Rabadas abusive send off had nothing to do with Stokes personally, it was just the frustration of being behind in the game and he happened to be the batsman he dismissed. Pretty sure both the players have stated there's nothing between them in particular and there's not been any notable incidents involving them before or after Rabadas ban.
  3. Jadeja suspended for Pallekele Test

    You missed the regulation below that though : 2.1.3 Public criticism of, or inappropriate comment in relation to an incident occurring in an International Match or any Player, Player Support Personnel, Match official or team participating in any International Match, irrespective of when such criticism or inappropriate comment is made. Which Kohli was in violation of when suggesting repeated systematic cheating in the post match press conference with no evidence. I thought it looked pretty clear that both boards agreed not to pursue punishments against each other as each captain recieving punishments during the series wouldn't benefit anyone.
  4. Ball tracking in Ind vs SL seres

    Well the batsman has got well forward out of his crease
  5. jofra archer

    The pace he gets with such a relaxed run-up and action is absolutely crazy.
  6. At what men's level is women's cricket?

    And why the need to shorten it when it's working just fine as it is? Tennis is one of the only notable sports that is reduced for the female version of the game.
  7. At what men's level is women's cricket?

    As proved by the very entertaining 50 over world cup that just finished?
  8. At what men's level is women's cricket?

    From an English perspective I think if you picked a womens world xi it would probably beat a local club ECB premier league team (the highest level of club cricket in England, so the level below county, county 2nd xi and minor county cricket). Start going far above that and I think it would start to become a bit of a mismatch.
  9. Final - ICC Women's World Cup 2017 - India vs England

    Didn't even need that, if she didn't slow down and ran her bat in at full length she'd have made it.
  10. Final - ICC Women's World Cup 2017 - India vs England

    Looks like half the game could possibly end up getting pushed into the reserve day because of the weather. Would be a shame given it's a sell out.
  11. That's why it's probably a good idea to read the article you're commenting on .
  12. They didn't issue a warning to anyone so unfortunately no opportunity for you to pull the racial victim card here.
  13. 12.5% of his wickets have come in Asia where he has played 12.1% of his games. 63.7% of his wickets have come in England where he has played 57.3% of his games. Not sure batting first here was the best choice by South Africa.
  14. Rabada ban

    Surely under this system a player who's already racked up 3 points (the equivalent of 3 occasions of 'verbal abuse') should be careful not to go overboard?
  15. Rabada ban

    They were there fining him, the same way Rabada would've been punished if he hadn't previously 'come into unnecessary physical contact with another player'.
  16. Rabada ban

    Why would they need to release a tape when it was fully audible on live TV.
  17. Rabada ban

    He'd have received the exact same fine and demerit points as he has on 2 occasions recently.
  18. England T20 Blast Thread

    Warwickshire received quite a bit of backlash from their supporters when they changed to Birmingham in t20 cricket. Saturday evening isn't exactly the best time for a t20 match in England because it'll clash with all the club cricket games. You'll notice most counties will avoid the Saturday evening slot most of the time unless it's a sky game. On a separate note let's hope Luke Fletcher is ok, that blow was horrific.
  19. First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    Third umpire appears to need a trip to the opticians after deciding that wasn't a no ball.
  20. First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    Yep, definitely nothing to do with Hameed being a walking wicket all season.
  21. First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    A team and pundits thinking about the future and series other than the one taking place? Shocking behaviour...
  22. First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    Dawsons being picked more to do the role Ashley Giles did for England to be honest and just hold up his end without releasing any of the pressure the pacers are putting on like someone like Rashid would. Did that job in his debut test match in the India series whilst Rashid was going around the park. Future prospects like Crane aren't quite ready yet.
  23. The ICC Women's World Cup | England & Wales 2017

    On another look you're right. From the outdated kits it appears the photoshoot was done during the KSL last year as it was where the greatest concentration of women's cricketers would be for a pre-tournament photoshoot. All 5 of the cricketers in that photo would have been present but there wouldn't have been any representative from India, Pakistan or Sri Lanka in the tournament to join it.
  24. The ICC Women's World Cup | England & Wales 2017

    Don't the teams featured just happen to be the ones that gained automatic qualification?
  25. New DRS rule

    Not sure I agree with this, it's going to result in a lot more reviews wasting a lot more time. If you're not going to just remove umpires call overall then I'd have just left it as it is. Teams know what region the ball has to be to keep their review and should make a judgement based on that, all this is doing is expanding that area.
