South Africa's Batting Woes Continue

Australia exposed South Africa's batting problems with a ruthless performance in Durban. The Baggy Greens ripped through the South African line-up with frightening ease. Reverse swing master Mitchell Starc wreaked havoc and had the hosts back in the changing room one after the other.             

England in NZ, plus Feb/Mar fixtures

Joe Root's England side will be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing Ashes series when they take on Kane Williamson's New Zealand next month in two Test Matches. The series, which starts with a day/night fixture in Auckland, is sure to be played in an entertaining fashion with both sides packed with explosive talent.     

England facing tough test vs New Zealand

After a month and a half of torture against Australia in the test arena, England bounced back with vengeance in the ODI’s series to complete a 4-1 series win. England's performance was in stark contrast to what they had produced during their disastrous Ashes campaign.                   

Liam Livingstone news, plus Jan/Feb fixtures

Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone has been named in the England Test squad, alongside Jimmy Anderson, for the first time ahead of the upcoming series against New Zealand in March. The 24 year-old, who's a graduate of the Lancs Academy, was recently named Captain having averaged over 50 in the County Championship. 

England lose The Ashes in Perth again

England have lost The Ashes once again in Perth after a crushing innings defeat by Australia in third Test. The Aussie players embraced on the field in a half-empty ground after an earlier rain delay halted their victory. It's just 863 days since England had reclaimed the Ashes themselves at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in 2015. 

The Ashes 2017 schedule

The 2017 Ashes series from down under in Australian has finally started and day one is done and dusted. Before the start I honestly had no idea which way the series will go, I'd also heard the weather hadn't been great in Brisbane either and with that in mine it could help both our bowlers and theirs. 

How long until The Ashes start?

If you're anything like me then you'll know exactly when it starts, I've had the date listed on my calendar for over six month now. If not, then you'll be pleased to know it starts exactly one month today on November 23rd, when both teams will enter the field of play at The Gabba in Brisbane.
