Too much focus on the shorter formats coming home to roost.

Not watched a lot of cricket over the last few years but I think it's good for the game of cricket to see the Windies getting back to being a good team

It is impossible to try to post in this thread when that is not happening.

This would appear to be a new low however.

The only choice really but not exactly convincing imo. Similar sort to Botham and Flintoff and neither of those worked.

As immature as this sounds, I would absolutely love to fight him (I think Lando Norris is the only person in sport I'd prefer to fight) and if I ever saw him would be tempted to antagonise him. Fortunately (for him) I don't live in the UK anymore

Stephen Fry: Actor and writer to become next MCC president




Actor and writer Stephen Fry will become the next president of the Marylebone Cricket Club.

Fry, 64, will take over from former England captain Clare Connor, who nominated him for the role, on 1 October 2022.

The broadcaster and comedian is a lifelong cricket fan and has been an MCC member since 2011.

"I am honoured and proud to be nominated as the next president of MCC," said Fry.

"It is a club that is known throughout the world for what it represents in the game and to be gifted the opportunity to perform this role is truly humbling."

Based at Lord's, which it owns, the MCC acts as custodian and arbiter of the laws and spirit of cricket.

Fry delivered the 20th MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture last year, becoming only the second non-cricketing figure after the late archbishop Desmond Tutu to do so since the event started in 2001.

Connor became the MCC's first female president since it was founded in 1787 when she took over in October last year.

"I am thrilled to be able to announce Stephen as my successor," said Connor.

"He has a deep love and care for cricket and will be a wonderful ambassador for MCC.

"The Cowdrey Lecture he delivered last year was inspiring and showed the extent to which he understands the challenges and opportunities that both MCC and cricket face.

"He will bring a wealth of experience to the role and I hope he thoroughly enjoys his year."

Just read that Graham Thorpe is seriously ill. I wondered how old he was so did a Google. Fuck me, he's only 52. Must've had an incredibly hard paper round

See England named McCullum as their test coach, I'm a bit surprised by that. Not sure what his coaching philosophy is but obviously as a player he loved to slog it regardless of the format or match situation.

Thought they were stepping away from trying to emulate that aggressive Australian approach in test cricket which is exactly what one would assume McCullum would try to emulate.

He was that type of swashbuckling big hitter that you couldn't help but love.

This clip will last forever too


Absolutely nails him

Morgan too

They've spent more time looking for the ball outside the stadium than they have bowling, it's been absolute carnage and great to watch!

I know it’ll take time to obtain the balance but this gung ho cricket is crazy!

We could easily have lost every game vs NZ & this one...

Entertaining though

Brilliant to watch, completely insane change in attitude in such a short space of time.

Cloud cover this morning, not good.

Chasing down 378. Fourth innings. Against India.

Unbeaten centuries from Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.

Wow.

They never looked in trouble today either. The control both Root and Bairstow have shown over the past few tests is quite amazing.
