You can tell Jonty is their fielding coach. Unbelievable.

What's the likelihood of Rocky coming back? He's been pretty much an ever present for Surrey hasn't he where as Borthwick was always a bit part player.

Anyone catch the BBC documentary about Flintoff and his bulimia last night?

Started when the papers went after him for being too fat when he first started playing for England and he's never got over it - really sad to watch :(

I like Freddy as much as it’s possible for me to like an English cricketer, and I have to say my thought was “Geez, he was a very good player - imagine if he weren’t hamstrung by this needless* painful burden he was forced to carry”...

*i.e. no need for Fleet Street to create the burden for him

I remember a headline when he had just broken into the team reading something like "Flintoff needs to stop losing his wicket and start losing some pounds" or some s*** like that.

Absolutely pathetic.

How the f*** does Moeen get another contract?

In his last 10 games he's averaging 9 with the bat (ODI's and T20's) and has gone for 216 runs taking 1 wicket. There's surely got to be someone else we can stick in the side.

Chris Rushworth and Brydon Carse among seven Durham contract extensions.

Scott Steel and Nathan Rimmington are among four players who will leave Durham at the end of the season.

Interesting that Steel is going elsewhere, not a fan personally. He had a bit of a run-in at our place a few years ago, acting the big time charlie.

England have been invited to take part in a short, limited-overs tour of Pakistan in early 2021.

England have not played in Pakistan since 2005 and their next trip is due in 2022.

Pakistan did not host Test cricket for 10 years following an attack by gunmen on the Sri Lanka team in 2009.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said it will liaise with the Pakistan Cricket Board and "a final decision will be taken in due course".

Ferk off man - better be sorted by November

Haha, mate, we’ve apparently got the hardest lockdown in the world in Melbourne. We’ve been told domestic Christmas travel is the aim, so the chances of international tourists (that aren’t LNP donors) by November is zero.

Working for an airline that has a certain red rat as it's logo, I wouldn't even be holding your breath for domestic Christmas travel in and out of Melbourne based on the internal mutterings.

But in regards to the Ashes, they will still go ahead regardless.  The All Blacks are coming over for the Bledisloe Cup and they were going to run the Rugby Championship out of Sydney with the Springboks and Argentinian teams before the former pulled out because they couldn't get their players match fit in time. 

Pretty sure the Indian cricket team are still touring this summer as well.  Just don't expect the fans to follow.

Looks like County Cricket will be 3 Groups of 6 again for 20-21 (5 home and 5 away)

Top 2 in each group go into Division One - they then play 4 matches with the team finishing 1st getting the title

The top 2 from Divsion 1 also contest the Bob Willis trophy final at Lords

I'm all for a shake up of the league format. Generally not fussed about the off the field stuff as long as we get a lot of 4 day cricket.

Also...

Could be damaging for the T20 Blast, given the summer in NYC is the same time of year as it is here.

A super over just got tied in the IPL, meaning there is another super over, however the previous bowlers and batsmen can't be involved. :lol:
