plus the Irish guy.
Flintoff is English enough for 11 men.
England are going to be getting two more huge (and I mean huge) talents from Ireland very, very soon. I know I said it before but remember the names George Dockrell (especially him) and Paul Stirling. These guys are 20 and 21 respectively and are made for the highest level....
Though I sincerely hope that our application for Test status is granted. We've asked to become a Test nation for 2020....if we don't our exodus of top quality players will continue. In recent years we've lost Ed Joyce (though he came back), Eoin Morgan (one of the best ODI and T-20 batsmen in the world) and will in all likelihood lose Stirling and Dockrell to England. That's gotta stop or cricket will never expand.
Eoin Morgan is a good player but he is not world class yet imo. He has way to many flaws in my opinion He reminds me of graham thorpe just a little uglier in his style. I am shocked moeen Ali has not been called into the england one day squad yet, very talented player.
Anyway i've enjoyed the west indies vs enland games even though it has been fairly easy for england. Today the first day in birmingham at edgbaston was cancelled due to rain...no suprises there. I've played on the actual pitch there and used to train there too with the county and so on, fun times.
Anyway as a kid I used to love West Indies cricket, my favourite player of all time was west indian so it is sad to see the state their game is in now even though they are improving again. Still not sure if the young players have enough professionals around them to fulfill their talent but I would like to see it happen.
Darren Bravo looks in terms of natural talent he could be as good if not better than any current england batsmen, he has so much time and elegance about his game but has failed so far in this series.
Finn should get a game in birmingham, should be interesting to see how he gets on too.
Any predictions on the England vs SA test series?!
AH yes the WINDIES of yesteryear awesome thrashed ENGLAND 5 nil back to back
Sad loss of upcoming player Tom Maynard found dead on the tracks in the LONDON UNDERGROUND from all accounts he was running away from the babylon who were going to pull him for drink driving. Son of Matthew Maynard.
Eoin Morgan's back in form <3
Ramps calling it a day
f**k is anyone interested in cricket any more AMLA SOUTH AFRICA triple century today first south African to do it Take a bow son take a bow!
Kevin Pietersen has just confirmed his commitment to "all forms of the game"
South Africa are currently 105-5 in their first innings.
England must win this test match to retain their World Number 1 test ranking.
South Africa all out for 309.
Strauss, Trott and Cook are all out already. England are currently 51-3.
Andrew Strauss has resigned as England captain and retired from international cricket...
I knew he'd resign as captain, didn't think he'd retire altogether.
Also, did anyone see the rogue cat on the field during the ODI between Pakistan and Australia? It was like digging a hole in the field. Great television.
so Graeme Smith has done it again. But there is truly something not being revealed because its all so drastic-I mean to give up the captaincy is understandable but all forms of the game? Something fishy or is it problems at home with the missus?
T20 World Cup starts today. Ireland vs Australia. We have a real chance of beating them too...
f**king useless. They seem nervous and our best batsman, Stirling is gone and now Joyce....25-3....it's T20 ffs, hit the f**king ball.....they're letting balls go....you don't do that in T20. Bat to f**king ball. Bat to f**king ball.
33-4 off just over 7 overs. f**k this. Lost already. Ridiculous Ireland....really disappointed.
