The Cricket Tier


A SWIG for Cricket

I know you shouldn't get too excited when you get a delivery, just in case you're disappointed when you open it. That certainly wasn't the case when I received my SWIG hip flask. I removed the outer bubble wrap to find a small light-blue box with a ribbon wrapped around it, it felt and looked like a Christmas present.        

Demanding The Ashes: Street Cricket Wars

The Cricket Tier - A different view on the world of cricket, is proud to let you know about a great cricketing story. Yes, we all know the 2015 Ashes series between England & Australia has just happened, but The Ashes are very rarely a persons first reason to fall in love with cricket.

England Regain The Ashes

My normal blogs are posted on the 6th of the month, every month, with some other ones in between when there is something "special" to write about. This month was different though, how could I publish my blog on the 6th August knowing The fourth Ashes Test at Trent Bridge was just hours away.

Anyone for Cricket in Munich?

Less than two days to go now until The Ashes begin, and I suppose like you, we're very excited as always as the anticipation grows towards 11am on Wednesday. However, before it all begins, The Cricket Tier has been here, another shire and there. That's right, last weekend The Cricket Tier went international with a visit to Munich.  

One Hell of a Blast

I think I'm still shaking after last night, that has to be the most intense, dramatic and best domestic T20 match I have ever seen! My latest article was only written and published two days ago, but after witnessing that last night I've had to give the #RosesMatch a special mention.                  

Lancashire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire & Back

Three different cricket grounds in a week? No, The Cricket Tier was in fact at three different cricket grounds in just five days. First up was Old Trafford on Wednesday 27th May, but not a single cricket ball was bowled. Not that I was disappointed on this occasion, we were there for a different reason.            

A Matter of KP's Form or Trust?

Innings scores of 19, 53*, 32, 8* in two County Championship Division 2 matches don't stand out to me as good enough form for an England recall for Kevin Pietersen. Yes he was 326* when he had his meeting with Andrew Strauss that evening but surely the decision for a recall had already been made then?
