    Michael Clarke

    Convict Captain Clarke declares half way through day 3 on 329*. Very unselfish I'd say he was 5 away from equalling Mark Taylor's 334 as the highest score by a convict skipper and 5 away from Bradman. Beyond that and with the time available he could have gone on to beat Lara's 400* and still had...

    Goodbye Piggy Eyes

    Ricky Ponting has given up the captaincy of the convict cricket test & odi teams and will be succeeded by Michael Clarke. He remains as a player having been picked for the forthcoming tour for 3 odi's in Bangladesh. That in itself is a bit of a surprise as normally when an Aussie gives up or is...

    Convict open

    Did I hear correctly when someone said that nobody has taken more than 3 games in a single set off of Murray so far. Of course he'll still probably go out in the quarters/semis to an inspired performance, but that's still seriously impressive.
  4. The English Cricket Coaster Continues

    Being English, I've come to expect and almost predict roller coaster Summers of sport. So often it takes the form of expectation and devastation that a Football World Cup brings. This Summer, it's been the turn of the England Cricket Team. The tumultuous Cricket Coaster started with the rise of...
  5. the prison system!!

    are the jails too cushy? with the prison population at record levels which is costing big money there must be an alternative. my idea, take one of the scottish islands where its in complete sticksville ie no public within 30 miles or any island in england with the same criteria. at the...

    India 2 Convicts 0

    India have just comnpleted a 2-0 series victory over Australia. From what I have seen of the convict side it is a pale shadow of the team that has dominated (2005 aside) for many years. The retirements of Warne, McGrath, Langer etc has obviously impacted heavily on them, Bully boy Hayden is not...
  7. Chris Morris news!

    To all the Morris fans out there... i know there are a few courtesy of PopBitch >> Brass neck << BBC say Airline Plot good, Morris bad? Chris Morris. Role model for news and comedy shows on TV. He has a brilliant new show idea. The Brass Eye provocateur has written a comedy...
  8. Ron Manager


    Don't worry, I'm not turning into an Aussie turncoat before I even get over there. However the love of beer is surely one thing we do share with our convict cousins and for those of you who think of Fosters and XXXX when someone mentions Aussie beer then may I recommend this - Coopers...

    WIndies v the Convicts

    As uninspiring as England v NZ (again) is, West Indies v Australia produced some enthralling play to show that it is England who are short of inspiration, not the format or the sport. Two years ago this would have been a gigantic mismatch, but the WIndies are a team finally on an upward curve...

    Bloody Convicts

    I've just seen the end of the 2nd Test from Sydney, Michael Clarke took 3 wickets in the penultimate over to give them a 16th consecutive Test victory. This match is a parallel to the Adelaide Test last year where England had a lead with 500 plus and lost. Although in that match the Aussies...

    Sri Lanka v England 3rd test at Galle

    Looks like thats it for the day. I've popped into a nearby internet cafe in case they decide to resume, but given there's now a spot of rain that's highly unlikely. Not sure what to make of today. I assume England won the toss and elected to field, but from my vantage point above the new gate...

    England in Sri Lanka

    First warm-up game today in Colombo. England have actually beaten their hosts to Sri Lanka, which is promising. They've also managed to beat me out there, as my flight isn't until Saturday. Sri Lanka were last night falling to a 2-0 defeat in convict land. Needing a world record 507 to win on...
