If anyone looking for a cricket fix this weekend there are three ICC trophy warm up games at Edgbaston this weekend with:
Bangladesh v Pakiston Saturday 27/05
Australia v Pakistan Bank Holiday monday 29/05
New Zealand v Sri Lanka Tuesday 30th
All of these games commence at10:30 and is free admission to Bears members and are only 10 or 15 to public which is great value,
and just 1 for U16's.
I will certainly be going Mon & Tue especially if sun out. There are a few isolated showers but.....still worth it.

Thanks for that info PGW. I had no idea that these games were on, and I must get 3 or 4 emails per week from the club!

Looking forward to a day in the garden with TMS on the radio. It's sunny now and so the forecast rain can feck right off.

England lost toss and have been put in. Currently 12/03.4

No Woakes...injured ..Quad strain not too serious but rested as a consequence. Jake Ball in to replace him.

England will be pig sick if they don't win the Champions Trophy. They're all over SA here.

England to win without Woakes and only 3 overs from Stokes is some effort! Great finish and we'll done to Mark Wood!

This team really has something.

What a wonderful last over from Mark Wood, he handled the pressure so well.

Stokes is so important for this side I'd rotate in next game.

I think so long as we have 2 out of Stokes, Moeen and Woakes we're in a good position because they all 'bring it' in all aspects of the game.
