The all new Cricket Thread

A brilliant and quite correct rant. The slashing at balls especially, I am sure sirdennis could confirm, is just amateur nonsense. Or more slashing across and at the ball.
Nasser is spot on. The technique or lack of it is dreadful.

Seems to me the batting coaches are trying to be too clever maybe to appear to justify the money they are earning , but in essence the basic principals of top class batting especially in test matches haven't changed at all.

I missed last nights' win by the Bears - too busy watching Wales if I'm honest.

The Bears appear to have some good young talent with the ball, but to me, there's still a question mark on the batting atm.

It's Vitality Blast day again today.

This time, the Bears are away against Durham at Chester-le-Street with a 2:30 kick off...... that's of course if it gets under way, as we are into the monsoon season now.
