If this August is another scorcher, they should consider going in swimming trunks and having an ice-filled paddling pool instead of a drinks break (it worked for Ntini, right? :D)

Cambridge UCCE beat Middlesex despite losing 3 times as many wickets! :D

"If this August is another scorcher, they should consider going in swimming trunks"

Best not select Bob Key then. The populous couldn't take it. :bwadr:

The people's choice would surely be to keep Thorpey and have KP too. Trescothick looked possessed by a club-wielding caveman, the poor Banga bowlers didn't know where it was going to go next. When it comes to it, I'd like to see Harmi used as a nigh****chman sometimes instead of Hoggard, to hopefully have someone around the next morning who can knock it about a bit too.

Bashar 61* or 65 if we include his brilliant reverse headbutt for 4. :D

Hopefully Flintoff and Jones get sent out if they have to bat again.

Andrew Flintoff's jerky bowling action was the main point of interest in an otherwise forgettable mismatch between England and Bangladesh recently staged at Lord's cricket ground. The Lancastrian's last spell contained some of the most blatant transgressions of the law covering legitimate actions seen in respectable company this year.

Shepherd was embraced by the players at the end of Pakistan's emphatic 136-run win, and Brian Lara even presented him with a bat that said: "Thank you for the service, the memories and the professionalism. Enjoy your retirement."


Did Lara walk on 0 in case Shep had missed the deflection, and so didn't want the Devonshire cream tea guru's last Test to be remembered for a potentially very costly mistake? (One of the Sky commentators said it wasn't the first time he'd seen Lara walk though.)

10dulkar undergoes surgery in London.

Here's to a speedy recovery. :cheers:



Lara will hope to have caught up even more on the century tally list by the time he's back I suppose. BC has an average of 100.86 against Sri Laka in Sri Lanka. Bodes well? :wonder:

PCA Master 167/6, Pieterson failure. Can you believe that we appear to have a complete twenty20 innings without 1 sungle boundary!?! Unless the cricinfo card and indeed the bbc's scorecards haven't yet been updated? :confused:

Thorpe went for under ten today in a county match after hitting his pad as the ball passed the edge.

Who knows? :(

Gilly has made 16 without cricinfo recording any boundaries which proves that they will be filled in later after all, Gilly must have hit at least 3 4's to get 16.

Right.

Ag you can be happy again. Gangas gets runs. :)

England v Hampshire. Should Pieterson bat for both sides? Because I feel guilty about England taking away half of their special weapons. :wonder:

Hoggy is typical Yorkshire. They fight. The batting may not be aesthetically appealing but it is tough to get a Yorkshire bloke out.

What to you think of Greg Chappell and the Indian cricket team.

May be he will open the bowling underarm and confuse Afridi?:angel:

Good for Gangas. Nothing like county cricket to tone up a guy.

Have you seen the scorecard of the 12 over game between England and Hampshire? Can matches get any closer. :Bad:

"Michael's case has been stolen," an Australia team spokeswoman told AFP on Sunday. "That contained his five bats, seven pairs of gloves, three pairs of spiked shoes, his yellow pads for the one-day series, two pairs of rubber-soled shoes - even his box has gone."



Even his box has gone. Has to be Nass. Though I wouldn't put it past Ashley Giles.
