My Ashes Pick

September 8, 2010

As a blog writer I will admit I read very few blogs (I know), but one blog I tend to always read is that of Oliver Brett on BBC Sport and when I recently read his Ashes Pick and I realised it is just over 8 weeks until England’s tour of Australia to defend the ashes begins in earnest.

Adam Gilchrist – An Aussie Gent

June 4, 2010

As the carnival that is the Friends Provident T20 tournament gets underway in England, I must say it is a pleasure to see Adam Gilchrist return to these shores.

Colly To The Rescue

July 15, 2009

As 6.40pm on Sunday grew ever closer, I decided to change my mind and do a review of the 1st Ashes test whilst previewing the 2nd test.

This was decided after a fantastic 1st test which was a fitting start to the summers cricket and I wanted to get excited, but as a cricket fan, sorry an English cricket fan I couldn’t.

But thankfully we had Paul ‘Colly’ Collingwood.
