  • Around the Wicket - Horses for Courses and Arrogant All Rounders

    Did you know that in the last eleven tests, Australia has fielded eleven different XI’s? That’s a lot of 11’s. But, it’s also a very unsettled side. The selectors are trying to get around that little stat by telling people they have a new “Horses ...

  • Around the Wicket - Black Caps and Boycotts

    So we’re all geared up for a 2 test series vs Daniel Vettori are we? Honestly – this series could be the death of New Zealand cricket. With a pumped up Aussie side looking to atone for the embarrassment of a 2-0 defeat to India, and New Zealand ge...

  • Around the Wicket - 4th test Preview

    So the test series is about to draw to a close, as the 4th test begins in Nagpur on Thursday. The equation is simple. Anything but an Australian win sees the Border/Gavaskar trophy back on Indian soil. For the Indians, they only need to draw the t...

  • Around the Wicket - 3rd Test Reviewed

    Well, I guess we’re all wrong sometimes. I doubted Australia would have the nerve to hold on this test match, and I even suggested India would win sometime on day 4. In fact, what happened was that we saw a big momentum swing after day 2 of the te...
