Welcome to our forums.

Am I the only person here into cricket?

A belated well done to England for wrapping up the test series with SA, nice to get an overseas series victory for a change.

The ladies are also doing quite well in the T20 Sri-series, with victory over India yesterday.

Hopefully they can push on and win the World Cup that comes at the end of this series and the men can fight back from their initial loss in the one day series.

Well done England, continuing the demolition of SA with an early wicket

A rousing thrashing of the South African Test side, well done England! Do I smell an overseas tour victory?

Shame that some of those who got into the 20/30s didn’t press on to a bigger innings but hopefully Stokes and Pope can press on and establish a big first innings lead. The rain isn’t helping though.

England are in a strong position for the final day of the test, lets hope they can translate that into a win to draw the series.

It says what many have said about the ‘Honours List’. I tried to get a person an award several years ago for their services of over 50 years to charity and though it was backed by our local MP it got no where yet a highly paid person in the employ of the charity got an award. I rest my case.

On the back foot again, can we turn this around?

A bit of fun on BBC Sport, “ Pick your England Test team of the decade”

Here’s my attempt. Pretty straight forward but I struggled with Monty vs. Swanny. Monty would be great if I needed someone to hold up an end cheaply but not a proficient wicket taker. Swan was a more effective strike bowler and was probably a good morale booster in the dressing room.

Which is fine for people who pay for their TV viewing – but I watch so little I’m very happy with Freeview and TMS. (If I had a long term condition which made getting out and about difficult, I’d rethink this!)
