Three tests, three results, each in three days. Doesn't scream quality series, does it?

Somewhere in ECB HQ, however, discussions are under way about reducing County Championship matches to three days to try and solve the fixture congestion problem.

Thoroughly enjoyed England v India in Bristol yesterday.

Hopefully the first of many women's internationals.

NB - I don't think Ecclestone's brilliant catch should have stood. Sure that the ball touched the ground as she rolled over.

Ashes all done and dusted by the end of July. Everyone loves an "Ashes half a summer".

Wankers.

Imagine they need the test players to play their flagship BS tournament in the summer….

They do unfortunately. The only home international cricket next August is a T20 against the Kiwis on the 30th August. Madness.

It's a joke, everything revolves the Hundred.

Failing to defend 199 is disappointing but in T20 cricket it’s very fine margins. When one batsman clicks it’s a difficult game, when two click it can  be impossible to contain them. Well played Pakistan.

Shithousery of the highest order from the Indian team in the women's cricket earlier.  Dean was in her ground when the bowler got into her delivery stride.  She then proceded to stop, turn back and take the bails off.  It was almost like a 'dummy' delivery designed to get the batter out and not really what the law is there for.
