So England once again take Tom Banton out of Somerset for him to sit there and do nothing - can’t remember when he last played , and he had found his form. Disgraceful treatment of him

been plenty of examples of this the last month or so, feels very much like they feel like they can do what they want as the counties are being more and more marginalised, very sad state of affairs the direction English cricket is headed 😪😪😪

I have just remembered it was 3 weeks ago as he smashed Kent for a century in the T20 blast

Well they are only concerned about the Hundred now and all those foriegn coaches

Apparently the team for the west of the country have been asked to look for the Welsh spirit - that’s gone down really well

How much does the Pak keeper shout? Beats the Indians[/QUOTE

I remember playing against a team years ago and the keeper was a massive arse! Always shouting and when up to the stumps always took the bails off even when you were in your crease.
Had a row with him one year then ended up playing in the same lloyds of London and league rep sides as him - that was awkward

Why oh why is this fascination for reverse sweep even when you fail to connect three out of four times. High risk, low payoff and chews up the balls..

It is no longer a surprise if you try it every other ball

Why oh why did Pakistan not bowl out shadab rather than bowl pace in the 18th over

that track should be the blueprint for limited overs cricket, something in it for everyone

Stuart Broad been utterly excellent in the comm box this series, lets hope the long standing rabble dont bring him down to their level as they have done others at the end of their career!
Totally agree. Knowledgeable, articulate, and without a hint that he is struggling for things to say. I’m not actually a huge fan of Broad as a cricketer, but have been mightily impressed with him in the commentary box.
