Chaos for England as 3 players & 4 staff test positive for covid so the whole squad has to isolate,one day series against Pakistan starts on Thursday so they've had to name a whole new squad which includes 9 uncapped players.

The team will be captained by Ben Stokes who was playing for Durham on his return from a finger injury,there are also some of the test players in the squad.

I would have thought they would all be vaccinated ?

But that doesn't stop you having it & passing it on.

Like how Kate Cambridge is self isolating 

This whole covid thing is a total bastard

England reserves beat Pakistan by 9 wickets.

An England team with 124 ODI caps between them,of which 98 belonged to Ben Stokes bowled a near full strength Pakistan side out for 141 including 2 wickets in the first 3 balls of the match.

Wow !

That's some dept to be proud off

 

Now i just hope none of those new caps end up like Neil Mallender because that was an unforgivable travesty

England reserves beat Pakistan again,this time by 52 runs so take a 2-0 lead in the 3 match series.

England women beat India women on duckworth/Lewis on Friday in a 20/20,a good catch to watch from Deol of India as she threw the ball in the air before crossing the boundary to then dive back onto the field to complete the catch.

A great 20/20 game yesterday between England & India women,chasing 149 to win with 7 overs to go England were 106-2 looking like they were going to romp home,only to lose by 8 runs,finishing on 140-8,still not quite sure if India won it,England threw it away or a mixture of both.

That catch was awsome

More exciting cricket as England reserves chase down 332 to beat Pakistan with 2 overs to spare in the 3rd ODI to complete a 3-0 series win,not bad for a side that was thrown together a week ago.

Can they shoot penalties...?

 

 

 

Possibly too soon

If they couldn't score penalties I doubt cricket fans would be defacing murals & sending out racist abuse on social media or trashing stuff.

Barbara Azim scored 158 for Pakistan & was applauded by the whole ground when he was out not booed because of his colour or who he plays for,just fans appreciating a good innings.

We have to keep cricket like this 

All cricket - from top to every lowly social league everywhere in the cricketing world 

We need to show other sorts why cricket is the best :)

Bring back the reserves.

An England team containing only 4 of the side to beat Pakistan in the one day series lost the first 20/20 game by 31 runs,Pakistan amassed 232 in their innings & despite the fastest 20/20 century by an England player from Liam Livingstone which kept them in the game for quite a while they were bowled out for 201.

Reminds me of Neil Mallender 

(Not for the first time)

Really sad for the 'reserve' players

In the Yorkshire v Lancashire 20/20 game,Joe Root declines to run out a Lancashire batsman who pulled up with cramp whilst running.

They be a place reserved  in cricketers heaven (a long time in the future) for him

Did you find yesterdays game as enjoyable?

Did not watch it this time, and have just looked up the result, must have been a very poor pitch but will make for a tense decider.

While on reserves.. India`s B team are up 2- 0 against Sri Lanka in the 3 match ODI series. In the first match, India chased 260 plus in just 36 overs and in the second thanks to a 8th wicket partnership of over 80, we came back from behind.. It seems that the second string team guys play with greater intent as most of these guys have played for the national team. Even in Australia, feel the victory there was due to the fact that most guys were very new, no pressure and a burning desire to show that they belong there. 

Having Rahul Dravid as the coach also helps.

@Daisey Jeep the hundred started last night with a womens game,a crowd of over 7,000 at the oval & it was live on the BBC.

A close game aswell with the home team winning with 3 balls left.

Not sure how I feel about it yet,seems all a bit jazzed up which of course is the purpose to get people interested in it but just seemed strange,20 lots of 5 balls instead of actual overs,a dj,fireworks etc.

Good to that young people are getting chance to see some actual cricket on tv though.

The mens competition starts tonight.
