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.

Don’t worry we’ll have another 3 weeks down under before the first test begins in Brisbane. After reading his informative blog, it made me wonder;

Is David Saker England’s Secret Weapon?

England cricket is experiencing a change in fortune over recent months, as the post-ashes slump appears to have refrained from happening like it did back in 2005.

Dawn Of A New Era

October 9, 2009

When the England squads for the forth-coming cricket tour of South Africa were announced yesterday I for one breathed a sigh of relief followed by a renewed optimism ahead of the tour.

Although the tour does not commence for another month or so and the all important test series not beginning until mid-December as a cricket fan I have more optimism than usual.

My Ashes Review

September 2, 2009

I decided to take a week or so to reflect on the events of this summers ashes series in England. Now I feel after celebrating an English win and listening to all the opinions offered that I can give an honest and fair review.

It was a great series but overall it was not on a par with the 2005 series we experienced in this country.
