    The Ashes 2013

    Sooooo, anyone care to speculate on the biggest sporting event of the year? England massive favorites on Betfair. I wonder if it will play that way.....Maybe I (along with others) am being paranoid what with it being Australia. You never know what they'll produce. Michael Clarkes form has...
  3. England in SL

    Squad has been announced. No place for Morgan, Patel comes in for him, whilst Tredwell (!) comes in for Tremmers. Might be a chance for Ravi to cement his place, alternatively they might push Prior up to 6, and play Patel or Bresnan at 7

    T20I: England v West Indies (Friday and Sunday)

    Myself and SUFCEssex are off to The Oval tomorrow for the first of 2 T20Is v The Windies Team news There are a variety of options for England to consider and the squad was clearly picked with an eye on Sri Lanka as it contains four spin options. It's hard to see more than two playing in either...

    Death Penalty vote back in the forefront

    According to Sky News, MPs may be about to debate the reintroduction of the death penalty: With the vast improvements in DNA and forensic findings, is it time for a more up to date viewpoint from the cross section of SZ posters at large? For myself, I believe that if the evidence is 100%...

    County Cricket Tubby XI

    Currently watching the Glamorgan vs Essex game on sky, and I must of picked up the fattest pro currently on the county circuit. Step forward or perhaps roll forward - Mark Cosgrove, Glamorgan's T20 Overseas player. Dropped apparently by his state side back in 2005 for being overweight. What...

  8. For those who believe that the founding ideology of America

    Was based apon one religious ideal ... I.E that America is neither founded on completely on the monotheistic ideals of Christianity or Judaism , and specificity welcomed those of other creed's and ideologies , to worship as they please. "Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a...

    Stanford Super Series

    England beat Middlesex last night in a warm-up to the $20m game. Not the most inspiring of games on a slow scoring pitch. No-one really seemed to get going, although Shah - playing against his county - top-scored for England and probably looked as fluent as anyone. Strauss dropped the easiest...

    BT Stats

    From the developers blog: There are 1,996 coaches who do not have any player assigned to them. These are employed by 446 managed teams. There are still 75 managed teams who have more than 10 coaches. Of all the coaches employed by managed teams, 34% are batting coaches, 32% are bowling...

    2nd ODI

    Can't believe England have dropped Bopara. Miller out! Moores out! Whittaker out! Giles out! He is England's best young batsman and a player we should be giving maximum amount of chance to succeed. He's hit a bloody double hundred in a limited overs games, plus a hundred off about 50 balls...

    One Day International

    After the test series, and the FPT Final last week, Im not that enthused about the one day series which starts today. However it is an area England need to improve upon (Although before NZ we appeared to be on the right track) and hopefully we can make a fresh start under KP. Slightly odd team...

    3rd Test

    So, England win the toss and bat. Goes without saying this is a massive test, and England can have no excuses with a full hand to choose from. As Im sure most of you know by now, this isnt the team Id have chosen (In form Ravi or Samit Patel over Colly anyday / just about anyone who can...

    NZ v Eng, 20:20

    Comfortable win for England. KP looked a class apart. My MoM McCullum for inserting England on a good pitch. The ball was darting about in the second innings under lights, with Sideshow in particular bowling well. Mascarenhas will probably get the plaudits for slogging Jeetan Patel for 4...
