    England Will Win the World Cup!!

    They were always the favourites to win. And they've now beaten the Aussies like they were a nothing side. Outplayed them on the field and with the bat.

  4. Match number - ODI no. 417 Two of the pre-tournament favorites, India and England, are going to be playing against each other in one of the most important matches of the ICC World Cup 2019. India and England have been the top-ranked ODI teams in the last couple of years. They are both very good sides that know each other’s strengths and weaknesses quite well. This was the same venue where the spinners got a lot of help in the match between Pakistan and New Zealand. There has been some murmuring in the media about England not getting the kind of pitches it needs and this may be in a bid to pressure the groundsman at Edgbaston to prepare a flat batting track. ENGLAND England has struggled in the ICC World Cup 2019. It has now lost to Pakistan, Australia, and Sri Lanka. It still has to play India and New Zealand, two of the in-form sides, and the knives are already being sharpened. England has not become a bad side overnight but it looks like the pressure of expectations is getting to it. The mental battle will be the toughest one it faces in this match. INDIA The only side still unbeaten in this tournament, India is under little pressure. It must win another match to be certain of its semi-final spot but it has two relatively easier opponents to face after England. Even if it loses this game, nothing much will be lost.India is going to be the far more confident side going into this match on a pitch expected to take a lot of turn.

  5. Hi everyone! I recently was introduced to the sport of Cricket and I love it! One of my classmates showed me this wonderful sport for an assignment that we had due and since then I have been hooked! I am really hoping that you guys can teach me more about this sport so I can help spread it to others in my community that do not know much about it. Please take a look at this article that I made in regards to the upcoming Cricket World Cup, I would appreciate any criticism or comments that anyone could provide! https://www.buzzfeed.com/cricketfiend/a-look-around-the-cricket-world-cup-2019-teams-3oospjudes
  6.   Jofra Archer could play for England at World Cup after ECB amend eligibility rules play Plenty of contenders for 2019 World Cup - Morgan (0:51) Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Email 10:08 PM Andrew Miller UK editor, ESPNcricinfo Jofra Archer could be set to play for England in the both the World Cup and the Ashes next year, after the ECB announced a change to its eligibility criteria - from seven years to three - following its board meeting at Lord's on Wednesday.  Archer, 23, was born and raised in Barbados, and represented West Indies at Under-19 level. However, he has been on Sussex's books since arriving at the county in 2015, and has risen to become one of the most sought-after all-round talents in the world game - a quick and accurate fast bowler and hard-hitting batsman, who was bought by Rajasthan Royals for £800,000 in last year's IPL auction.  Under the previous ECB regulations, Archer had been braced to serve a seven-year residency qualification, which would have made him available to England in 2022, by which stage he would have been 27. The terms of that regulation also required him to be in the UK for 210 days a year - causing conflicting priorities for a man who would be a marquee pick at any T20 tournament around the world.  ADVERTISEMENT  In a press release, the ECB confirmed the changing criteria for players such as Archer, who had moved to the UK after their 18th birthday, stating that the new regulations brought the board into line with the ICC's own regulations, which were themselves amended this year from four years to three.  The change will come into force on January 1, 2019, meaning that Archer could conceivably make his England debut on the tour of the Caribbean that starts later that month.  However, it is understood that, in order to meet his 210-day limit in time for that tour, Archer - who is currently playing in the T10 in the UAE - might have to renege on some of his oversees commitments, including this winter's Big Bash. Otherwise, he will be become eligible to play for England in March.  "The exact date of Jofra's qualification will depend on the time he spends out of the country during the rest of 2018-19," said a Sussex spokesman. "Qualifying for England has long been an aim of Jofra's and Sussex Cricket is delighted for him that this ambition will now be realised sooner than previously envisaged."  Reacting to the news on Twitter, Archer wrote: "It may or may not happen but I would love to debut in front of my family."  It may or may not happen but I would love to debut in front of my family  — Jofra Archer (@craig_arch) November 29, 2018 The new ECB eligibility criteria for players, both men and women, from January 1, 2019, are:   a) British Citizenship and, b) Either born in England/Wales, or 3 years residence (a total of 210 days/year April-March) and c) Not played as a local player in professional international or domestic cricket in a Full Member country within the last 3 years  The decision could be a massive fillip for England going into their home World Cup campaign, in which they start as favourites after a remarkable turnaround in fortunes in recent seasons.  Eoin Morgan, the England ODI captain, was understood to have been an advocate for Archer's fast-tracking - albeit he denied this in comments back in June - for if England lack one attribute in an otherwise very well rounded squad, it is a reliably quick spearhead, to complement an attack in which Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid are arguably the first-choice picks.  When fit, Mark Wood has been a preferred option to provide England with a pace injection, but his ongoing ankle issues mean his availability cannot be taken for granted, while Liam Plunkett - who plays a crucial role in the middle overs of an ODI innings - will have turned 34 by the time the tournament gets underway
  7. Having made a commendable comeback from the brink of a series defeat, India will look to increase their stranglehold on hosts England to draw parity when the two teams square off for the fourth Test India: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant (wk), Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuma Vihari, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah. England: Joe Root (C), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Oliver Pope, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, James Vince.
  8. Is Ravichandran Ashwin the best choice to replace Kohli as captain in Tests? If not, then who?
  9. The Indian cricket team would expect its floundering batsmen to take more responsibility in pursuit of a series-levelling victory in the second Test against England, starting on Thursday at Lords. Squads India: Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Rishabh Pant, Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah.

    Ollie Pope

    https://www.google.co.in/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/sport/cricket/ollie-pope-england-india-second-test-lords-cricket-india-a8481636.html%3famp It may also be that Pope takes Dawid Malan’s place at No4, which would be an extraordinary induction. No England batsman has made his Test debut at that position in almost 20 years, since Michael Vaughan took on South Africa in 1999, the famous Wanderers Test in which England were 2 for 4 before Vaughan launched a dogged rearguard that portended the golden career to come.

  13. Riding on an impressive Twenty20 International series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against hosts England in the three-match One-day International series, which begins at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday. With the 50-over World Cup scheduled to be held in the UK next year, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a fair idea of the conditions that his team are expected to encounter around the same time next year.

  16. Pakistan target series win Quotes "It was very clear where we needed to improve from last week. We've had some good preparation, the guys have really worked hard and now it's just doing it, going out and proving a point, putting a really strong performance in as a group and showing some pride in the badge.'" Joe Root expects a response from his team after their humiliation at Lord's "We have to forget Lord's and move on to this now. If we want to move ahead as a team we have to forget our wins. We did well, we enjoyed it for two days, but now we're here." Sarfraz Ahmed on keep focus Big Picture On an overcast Tuesday afternoon just over two weeks ago in Malahide, Pakistan found themselves three wickets down for 14, still needing 146 more to prevent Ireland becoming the first team since 1877 to win their maiden Test match. With a worrying recent history of fourth-innings implosions, Pakistan looked set for a defeat so ignoble it would define their time on British shores this tour, and highlight the malaise of their Test team since, indeed, the last time they were in the UK just under two years ago. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam carried them through that ordeal, and since then, the post-mortems of sharp declines in Test fortunes are suddenly the opposition's problems. The series against England began with two Test teams that had, with varying degrees of rapidity, gone from being the best in the world to distinctly mediocre. Pakistan's - as you would expect - was a more expeditious, less explicable downturn, albeit one hastened by the retirement of two of their greatest batsmen, Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq, while England's arguably has reasons stretching back for a decade: from cricket no longer being on free-to-air TV, to the marginalisation of the County Championship, to their well-documented struggles in replacing Andrew Strauss and Graeme Swann, not to mention Kevin Pietersen and Andy Flower. But the manner of England's decimation at Lord's - their fifth defeat in 12 Tests at that holiest of grounds, where previously they had not lost since 2005 - may be the jolt the home side need to assess how far they've fallen. In last week's Test, England were out-thought by a team that isn't exactly renowned for its meticulous planning, out-fielded by an outfit that has never been a torch-bearer in that regard, and out-batted by a group whose susceptibility to the moving ball is well-documented. After all that, it was hardly a surprise that Pakistan out-bowled them, too. The dismissiveness, almost derisive, with which Sarfraz Ahmed's young team put England away seems to have set alarm bells ringing at the ECB, with an urgency that wasn't in evidence even in the wake of a 4-0 drubbing in the Ashes earlier this year. As a result, Pakistan find themselves in the unfamiliar position of being the steady clinical team from which no drama is expected, while England have faced all manner of uncertainty over the past few days. The only blot on a perfect Test at Lord's for Pakistan was the loss of Babar to a wrist fracture, while Joe Root's men have been left to contend with changes in strategy and personnel if they are to avoid a first home series loss to Pakistan in 22 years. Form guide England LDLLD Pakistan WWLLW Team news As if England didn't have plenty to ponder already, Ben Stokes is a serious doubt with a hamstring injury, with a late decision expected before the toss. Teenage prodigy Sam Curran has been brought in as cover. Chris Woakes's chances of starting in Stokes' absence look good, particularly given his all-round credentials, and though Dom Bess had an indifferent debut, it is unlikely that England will risk starting the Test without a specialist spinner. As for the batting department, Stoneman has been left out, with Jennings returning to partner Alastair Cook at the top of the order. England (probable) 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Keaton Jennings, 3 Joe Root (capt), 4 Dawid Malan, 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 6 Ben Stokes/Chris Woakes, 7 Jos Buttler, 8 Mark Wood, 9 Dom Bess, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 James Anderson It is much more straightforward for Pakistan. With Babar Azam out of the side, Usman Salahuddin is set to make his debut at Leeds tomorrow. No other changes are expected. Pakistan 1 Azhar Ali, 2 Imam-ul-Haq, 3 Haris Sohail, 4 Asad Shafiq, 5 Usman Salahuddin, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Mohammad Abbas http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/18025/preview/1119536/england-vs-pakistan-2nd-test-pakistan-tour-of-ireland-2018/
  17. Pakistan face England at Lord’s Lord´s, London, May 23, 2018: England´s Joe Root and Pakistan´s Sarfraz Ahmed pose with England vs Pakistan Test series trophy. Photo: Action Images via Reuters Big Picture The teams were jostling for the No. 1 Test ranking. Now they are battling mid-table mediocrity. Alastair Cook and Misbah-ul-Haq were the captains. Now it's Joe Root and Sarfraz Ahmed. Younis Khan was jumping around the crease (and scoring a double century). Now Pakistan are trying to build a new middle order. It's been less than two years since England and Pakistan last met for a Test series and much has changed. The latest series, which starts at Lord's before continuing to Headingley, is a meeting of teams in various states of flux. England are still trying to find solutions to a number of familiar problem areas while Pakistan have lost three of their five series since taking the No. 1 spot shortly after the 2016 contest concluded with their series-levelling victory at The Oval. Pakistan are missing three men who were vital to that 2-2 scoreline - Misbah, Younis and the injured Yasir Shah - and another, Wahab Riaz, who could have added experience if not always direction with the ball. Their batting looks on the callow side and they almost came a cropper against Ireland, with much resting on Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq finding their touch quickly in a short series. With the ball, however, they will, as so often, remain a threat. Quite how much Test cricket Mohammad Amir will play remains to be seen but he bowled beautifully in Ireland and if his team-mates can catch he could run through a line-up. Mohammad Abbas will be a handful if there is any nibble on offer while Shadab Khan has immense promise and also the advantage of being new to England. For England there are subplots aplenty at the beginning of a second season in charge for Root. His own position (in the batting order, not the captaincy) is one talking point - can he settle at No. 3? - which is part of a larger reshuffle of the order. Will the punt on Jos Buttler at No. 7 pay dividends or just muddy the water more? Can Dom Bess take the most of an unexpected chance? Is Mark Stoneman facing his last chance? Can Alastair Cook go again as a Test batsman? Is there life beyond James Anderson and Stuart Broad? That's a lot of questions. Of late, England's Test side haven't provided a whole lot of new answers. This season needs to change that. Team news England's one decision is between Chris Woakes and Mark Wood for the final pace-bowling slot. Wood was recalled in Christchurch at the end of March and provides extra pace. Woakes provides more with the bat. There will be a debut for 20-year-old offspinner Dom Bess. Pakistan 1 Azhar Ali, 2 Imam-ul-Haq, 3 Haris Sohail, 4 Asad Shafiq, 5 Babar Azam, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Rahat Ali/Hasan Ali, 11 Mohammad Abbas England 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Mark Stoneman, 3 Joe Root (capt), 4 Dawid Malan, 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 6 Ben Stokes, 7 Jos Buttler, 8 Mark Wood/Chris Woakes, 9 Dom Bess, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 James Anderson http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/23581673/england-pakistan-looking-forge-new-test-identity-mid-table-battle
  18. All bowlers did well.Ishant played very vital role in picking up those two wickets and keeping lid on scoring rate . Ishant has become a bowler who will bowl long spells and be economical which is very important in keeping the lid on run rates. Monga's article says it best about Ishant. Bhuvi is a must in England , Bumrah is rising star and Shami is the leader of the attack. So the question becomes which bowler has to make way for a spinner. I would be tempted to leave Shami out. Your views.
  19. Couldn't see an Ashes Series thread so figured I'd start one. @Laaloo, feel free to sticky this Thread old sport. Obviously I will have an keen interest in how Australia go given Pakistan's own born Khawaja will likely play for Australia. I cannot see Australia losing a Test. I suspect they will whitewash England and win most games inside 4 days. The (lol) England batting line up looks very fragile except for Root how will likely struggle as most English captains do in Australia. Starc, Hazlewood and Lyon will be too strong for the batting line up while Smith (best batsman in the world), Warner (best opener in the world) and Khawaja will dominate the English retirement village pace attack. I for one would be very surpised if the scoring line wasn't 5 - 0 Australias favour at the end of the series
