Crickets Biggest Characters

For those not in the know Cricket is to them a dull drawn out game that is mostly played by dull entitled people. While there might be some truth in that (no offence Alistair Cook), for the fans who enjoy the ultimate tests in sport, we understand that to excel at this game you must be slightly nuts. That could be the insane concentration required

Bangladesh beat the Three Lions

Bangladesh produced one of their finest ever comebacks to win the second Rocket Test Match and level the two match series at 1-1. This was their one and only Test victory against the Three Lions from England and they fully deserved it. It rounded off yet another all round hard thought Test Match.              

England in Bangladesh

The First Test was a cracking Test Match all round and it had pretty much had everything that kept both sides fans on the edge of their seats all the way to the end. Just shows how far Bangladesh have come in the past 16 years. Not many people a few years ago would have been predicting games between these two countries would now be so close.

Why everyone loves Our Joe

Joe Root, with his baby face, cheeky smile and unassuming nature, is definitely the boy next door you don’t mind introducing to your Gran. But put him on a cricket pitch and he will send shivers down the spines of even the most terrifying of bowling attacks.                      

Bookies Make England Favourites v Pakistan

England should have no problem beating Pakistan in this summer's second home test series - if the bookies are to be believed. Having already beaten Sri Lanka earlier this year, England were expected to find Pakistan a sterner test, but they are still being heavily backed to succeed.
