Why do France keeping getting major sporting events? They couldnít organise a piss up in a brewery.

Itís because Lourdes is the home of cricket.

I donít really understand the squad weíve picked for the Ireland games. It feels like some of the batsmen need some more prep.

This white ball series against the Kiwis has been very strange, each game whether T20 or ODI has been won by large margins, I donít remember those kind of results before.

Malan is so badly underrated.

No Roy in the squad for the World Cup squad, heís replaced by Harry Brook which seems a sensible move.

England coming towards the end of their innings against Ireland. A few times it's threatened to turn into a really big score before a wicket or 2 slows things up again.

Hain is batting really well on debut and Jacks got a really good 94 before mistiming one going for a 6. Aside from that we've had a lot of starts but not quite pushed on.

The delivery from Ahmed to bowl McBrine is a beauty, far better players would've been done by it. The kid is going to be a top spinner before long, I just hope England don't do a Woakes to him and trap him in 12th man limbo for years.

Pretty embarrassing for Gloucester that the umpires had to abandon the ODI at Bristol today after 30 minutes worth of rain. Watching them try to get those antiquated covers on was quite comical though!

Any predictions for the World Cup. I'll go with India, England, Australia and Pakistan to make the semis. India to win final as home advantage will be massive.

I hadn't realised the West Indies had qualified for the World Cup.

Nope theyíre in grim place. Big 3 and ICC still continue to fail to realise a diverse game is absolutely key to long-term stability (and ultimately earning potential). If more of the wealth was spread it would end up better for all.
