Despite finishing 4th in the Leage Durham County Cricket Club relegated, start next season -48 points and banned from hosting Test Cricket

Talk about harsh !!!

Brutal Durham punishment reflects poorly on ECB

There could well be a few: F.T.E.C.B. banners floating around the Riverside when the England v. West Indies T20 game is played next September.

Eligibility rules for the ICC to play cricket for a country

For blokes, it seems you have only to live in a country for just over 6 months in the preceding 4 years to be eligible. You don't have to be a citizen of that country.


Sourced from the ICC rules here



I have no idea why rule 3.3 is there. Surely 3.2 would apply??
















No wonder so many South Africans go play in England. No racial preferences and an easy side to get into!!

Injured Mitch Marsh in doubt for Ashes



What clown wrote this article?



He/she got this part right


Quote:
The shoulder injury caps off a turbulent time for Marsh, who has copped widespread criticism on social media for his ongoing struggles with the bat.

Marsh has averaged 21.7 across his 21-Test career, posting just one half-century in his past 32 Test innings.


But this?? A blaster??? FFS!!!


Quote:
The WA blaster has fared better on the bowling front, with his 140km/h seamers viewed as a crucial weapon in the Test side.




Don't get me wrong. I want everyone that plays Test cricket for Australia to perform superbly including Mitch. Score 100 runs plus an innings, take 10 catches and take 10 wickets but sadly our man Mitch Marsh is clearly not up to the Test cricket standards required to play for Australia.



He can go make his fortune on the T20 circuit. Good luck to him.


But please, never again in the Australian Test cricket team.
