I once had the honour of playing at Stapleton Towers Plymouth CC, and bowling 2 overs at the mighty Gary Sobers. I was one of two school kids given the honour in a charity match against a Pasty Harris team I think. God knows how I wangled that, I was 16 or 17. I think it was Hylton Jones' recommendation who played for Tavistock.

Hylton Jones............ Remember him.Teacher i/c 1st team cricket at Sutton. Decent chap I seem to remember. Used to bosh it a bit too.

My club Tring Park CC have this guy playing Premier League cricket in 2016.

The Club is very pleased to announce that Australian, NSW and Sydney Sixers all-rounder Sean Abbott will be joining us this 2016 cricket season as our overseas player.

We are very excited by this signing, as Sean is one of the most exciting young talents in Australian cricket. The club also sees great virtue in having someone of Sean’s standing to coach and mentor some of our younger cricketers.

Simon Shearman, Chairman of the Club, says “this is fabulous news for Tring Park Cricket Club and the local community. Sean is a terrific young cricketer and we very much look forward to working with him. Tring punches way above its weight in sport, particularly Cricket & Rugby; this is just another example of that and I have no doubt that Sean will be embraced by the Town and his stay with us will be an enjoyable one. A big thank you to all those who have made this possible, in particular Berkhamsted School and Tape Specialities Ltd”

And this one.........

We are pleased to announce that Northamptonshire cricketer Saif Zaib has joined the Club. Still only 17 years old, Saif became the youngest player ever to appear for Northants 1st XI two years ago and he played two first class games for the County last season. He is a left handed bat and slow left arm bowler, and scored 108 and took four wickets for 35 runs for Northants 2nd XI against Durham in 2015.
Welcome to TPCC Saif!

Is that the Sean Abbott who was the bowler in the Phil Hughes tragedy?

Yes. His brother, younger, bigger and a batter, was lined up to be our overseas but I believe Sean turned down pro contracts and wanted a bit of down time with his brother. So the brother is now playing at neighbouring club Dunstable. Really hope he finds what he's looking for and returns to Oz at peace with the world.
A really nice lad from what I've heard.

Did you see the Windies singin n dancin on their return to the hotel last night ? Can't find it on youtube but it's on f/b.

Oh dear.19 needed off the last over,4 length balls from Stokes pumped massively into the stands by Braithwaite. Great game of cricket though, twists and turns all the way, Samuels once again laying the foundation for the WI as he did last time they won it. Unlucky for England who didn't make enough runs after an awful start but well done to the WI-they won the womens 20/20 today as well as the U19 50/50 the other day-long overdue resurgence?

I've just seen the last over online.
It all looks a bit suspicious to me. Four full length balls just asking to be hit out the ground ? . Cricket has always had a bent side. It's why the game was invented.

Shocking news;

Rather unbelievable-James Taylor has always struck me as being one of the fittest players on the circuit. Can only wish him well in his operation and for the future- England will miss him,should have played more IMHO.

What about KP re-qualifying to play Test cricket for South Africa then?

If I was him then I'd go for it; if I was them I'm not sure I'd pick him.

If I was the ECB I'd bang a few heads together and get him back in the XI.

Very shocked to read this. I thought he was destined for 50 odd tests at least. At least they have found out before something serious happened.

Tony Cozier passes away;

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Another in the mould of Benaud, Laker etc goes. Loved his commentary even though a few years back it was inevitably about another tanking the West Indies were giving to England. He must have despaired at what happened to the Windies in recent times, but at least they won both 20/20 tournaments in the winter which may have cheered him a bit.

RIP Tony

Woakes six wickets but bit of a last wicket stand 338-9.England's weaknesses exposed a bit in this innings, Moeen was fodder for the class bats in the Pakistani line up and Finn wouldn't have been picked for Sydenham Damerell seconds on that display.

Pakistan 281 ahead with two wickets standing. This is obviously not going to be a repeat of the Sri Lanka walk over, Pakistan have very talented match winners in their line up and I don't honestly give too much for Englands chances in this one against their attack-Yasir is different class. Good match for Woakes, streets ahead of any other England bowler and 11 wickets so far.

Bowlers did the business again this morning, 283 to win - achievable.

3 wickets down for less than 50 with Cook and Root back in the pavilion. Not looking good.

Top performance by England in this one, although still disagree with not enforcing the follow on, could easily have blown up in Cooks face given a bit of bad weather and better batting from Pakistan. What a talent Root is-technically flawless and every shot in the book, one of the very best English bats of all time already.

Pakistan win final test by 10 wickets, they outplayed England in this one and level the series 2-2. Fitting result for an excellent test series, pity there isn't a decider. England have some batting problems though-Vince, Ballance and Hales have failed to impress-not sure what the cupboard is like in county cricket, always thought that Hildreth of Somerset deserved a chance-maybe he plays for the wrong county.

Hildreth wouldn't be the first Somerset player to be outperforming others in county cricket, only to be overlooked by the England selectors. I can think of quite a few in recent times who've either not been selected, despite being clearly worthy, or who have moved counties in order to get a better chance - Compton to Middx, Buttler to Lancashire, and further back Harden to Yorkshire.

Peter Roebuck, Graham Rose, and even Peter Trego in the T20 should have been called up by their country. West is sometimes best, not that the selectors seem to realise.

Hales broke the record for an England batsman in ODI's as well with 171.Couldn't see Geoffrey Boycott or Ken Barrington doing that somehow.

Amazing performance even considering the crap fielding by Pakistan.

Why does Hales open the batting in Test matches? Surely he is a perfect no.5?

England were utterly mullahed by Pakistan in last nights 20 over match, a mixture of mediocrity from us and brilliance from them.

Get your scrumpy out as Yorkshire struggling to bowl out Middlesex. A draw is no good for any of them and therefore expect teatime contrived run chase.................if it is a draw Somerset win the county championship for the first time.

Come on Somerset!!
