The last 12 months haven’t, on the surface at least, been the best for England cricket. They’ve completed the year without a Test or T20I series win and their one-day World Cup performance in India was below par. But there have been some astonishing moments across 2023 both for England and others. Here are my [...]
This feels like a pretty good situation for England as they head into today’s 50-over Cricket World Cup. Sure, there is always pressure being defending champions – after they claimed the title with an amazing Super Over victory against today’s Ahmedabad opponents New Zealand four years ago – but it is nothing like the levels [...]
It’s incredible. Tomorrow sees a must-win Ashes Test match for England against Australia and there seems to be more chatter about what’s going on off field than on it. The unsavoury scenes in the Lord’s Long Room was not a good watch and not good for cricket but I do hope nothing changes – except [...]
A Lord’s Test match is always special, even more so during the Ashes. It is the Home of Cricket and Ben Stokes and his England side will be keen to level up the series after their opening loss to Australia. The tourists played their part in an exceptional Test match and while the early declaration [...]
It’s fair to say that one of the biggest moments in my career is synonymous with the phrase “Barmy Army wicket”, and there will be times during this Ashes series where England may need to rely on the crowd to keep them going. I love the unwavering confidence head coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben [...]
There is always a sense of excitement when the Ashes rolls around; it is cricket’s biggest rivalry and it transcends the sport. And after England’s hugely disappointing 4-0 away loss in the last edition of the series, the hosts this time around, under new stewardship, go in as my slight favourites. Australia still possess the [...]
Jos Buttler’s Twenty20 side may have somewhat botched their run chase against Afghanistan in their World Cup opener on Saturday but they’ll be over the moon to have the first game hoodoo off their back. It doesn’t matter what kind of form you take with you into a World Cup; that opening match can be [...]
When the T20 World Cup gets going in Australia this weekend, the bigger teams will still have a little while to wait before their campaigns begin. England don’t start their World Cup until next weekend – when they play Afghanistan – but it’s still a good chance for the team, under Matthew Mott, to get [...]
When Ben Stokes leads his side out against New Zealand at Lord’s on Thursday with head coach Brendon McCullum watching down from the famous pavilion, it will mark a new era in English Test cricket. I was not surprised to see Stokes appointed captain – there weren’t too many other options around the squad at [...]
It’s a shame I can’t speak to Shane Warne again and thank him because I wouldn’t have got to where I got to, and played for England, without him. He will leave a legacy in so many different ways. People remember him for his antics off the field, he was a rock and roll cricketer, [...]
