    According to the vacuous New Zealand news website, Stuff, the Basin Reserve is shabby and needs a makeover. Well no shit. The Basin Reserve is shabby. As a visitor from overseas, I was struck with how provincial it was. On top of any earthquake strengthening works, it needs better general admission seating and floodlights (seriously, even the WACA has lights) for starters. Then overall logistics (some kid holds a piece of string restricting the movements of spectators during overs, true story) needs some major attention.

    With Mickey Arthur suing Cricket Australia and airing the family secrets, Australian cricket hasn’t been so scandalous since Shane Warne bought a mobile phone.It’s a bit of a shame that it coincides with the second Test. How can we thank him for snitching when there’s an urn to be returned? You don’t make friends with salad, Mickey.Now, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that I don’t like Michael Clarke.If you were to ask me, I’d say he pretty much encapsulates everything that is wrong with the Australian side.

And not because I was too busy reading this gem (thanks M_Littlewood84!), but because it seems to be thought of as a foregone conclusion.Not even Cricket Australia’s TV commercial, which has far too much John Howard in it, places any confidence in our team. Make no mistake my friends, they’re trying to tell us the glory is in the struggle. This is not true. The glory is in the win, win after win, series after series.

    You could be forgiven for thinking the current Australian cricket team are a touch on the bland side. By a touch on the bland side, I obviously mean the blandest thing since the Poms started making curries. A team consisting of a few stalwarts, a bunch of who-the-fucks, and Michael Clarke. A decade ago I loathed cricket with a fervour that I now reserve for hippies and gun-happy Americans. But I knew who most of the Australian cricketers were. Not because of their skill (a low score meant it would all be over quicker - yay) but because they had a bit of personality.Maybe you can’t entirely…

    Holding a Test match in Wellington at the end of March is a pretty stupid thing to do. It has rained more than half the days so far this month, and while the MetService often get it wrong, (the weather can change from rainy to sunny faster than Jesse can down a XXXX), rain is forecast from Friday through until Monday. Who in their right mind would commit to that scheduling in a place where the weather is so reliably unreliable? People who want the match to be rained out. Who would take a draw over a loss. I know, it sounds like an England thing to do, but when you consider how desperately NZ…

  • KP: The Autobiography - A Review

    Kartikeya Date
    10 Oct 2014 | 3:40 am
    Kevin Pietersen has written a startling autobiography. So startling that it has taken the English cricketing and journalistic establishment by surprise. It is a catalogue of leaks, intrigues, triumphs and disappointments which accompanied the brightest batting talent in contemporary cricket on his way to becoming England's greatest international run scorer.Such is the specificity and relentless ferocity of Pietersen's critical gaze, that were it not without regular glimpses into his vulnerabilities and his willingness to admit error, the book would read like an ethnographic account of the…

    16 Sep 2014 | 9:42 am
    ESPNCricinfo published a list of Frequently Asked Questions about illegal bowling actions the other day. Question 1, was as follows:What is an illegal bowling action?An illegal bowling action is one in which the bowler's 'elbow extension' exceeds 15 degrees while he is in his delivery stride. The ICC set the 15-degree limit for all bowlers in November 2004.This is wrong. But perhaps, it is not Cricinfo's fault. The ICC has been saying this for 10 years now. It all goes back to a recommendation by a sub-committee constituted by the then chair of the ICC's Cricket Committee, Sunil Gavaskar. At…

    Pakistan's ace spinner Saeed Ajmal was banned from bowling in competitive cricket by the ICC after a technical review of his action found that Ajmal flexed his elbow more than double the allowed 15 degrees. Ajmal's action was reviewed in 2009 and cleared. Ajmal is one of at least 6 spin bowlers from the top 8 Test playing teams whose action has invited technical review recently. Kane Williamson, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford, Sachithra Senanayake have been studied and banned at least to some degree.This increased scrutiny of bowling actions follows an ICC Cricket Committee directive…

I'm not going to try and present a lengthy autopsy here. But the lamentation is worth reflecting on. What sort of defeat is intolerable?,  Liberate Dhoni, India failed to provide a serious examination, Test team has embarrassed the country.

    Cricket has to be watched. Only the score can be learnt by reading most match reports or live commentary. If you watch even an hour of the day's play, then you will learn nothing more by reading professionally prepared match reports as a rule. If you read match reports about Day One at The Oval, you'll find plenty about the Indian captain "standing firm" and tedious plays on the word 'green'. You'll find that unsuccessful leaves are generally "half-hearted", while players who make runs are "competitive".Anybody who has to rely on match reports to know what's going on on a cricket field could…
