On the front foot attacking England generally look good.
It's under any duress they just give up.

An innings win in three days on paper looks very good but there's a but here. This side seven days ago played England off the park

Saw the end of the Somerset game yesterday. Always find the English domestic limited overs tournaments enjoyable.

Windies side is very young and seems to be improving.

Hope they don't all fuck off and become t20 nonces in a couple of years.

It's meant to be entertaining but cricket is meant to be a contest between bat and ball.

Afghanistan take their first step into test cricket today.
Can we line up a series against them, might actually win for once.
