Before this week’s match, I have switched around non-facing opener Sanders to third for me to second. We lose and bat. How will I do in this new position? We start strong, 8 off four and then we’re out. Disappointing. In our bowling we start badly, but collect a wicket in our first over. I […]Read more "Paddy Spin Career Mode Season 2 | In Charge"

Steve O’Keefe had an outstanding performance against India in Pune, his best bowling of 12/70. Darren Lehman has compared it to Mitchell Johnson’s performance in the Ashes. But can O’Keefe keep up his form and prove himself in the next tests or was it a fluke? Steve O’Keefe looked to be ‘past his prime’ at […]Read more "Will Steve O’Keefe keep up his recent form?"
Brian Lara is an unbelievable batsman who has the highest score in international test cricket. Sachin Tendulkar is as great as well, being the most consistent Indian cricketer there ever was.

I will have a look at their […]Read more "Brian Lara vs Sachin Tendulkar: Who is the Better Cricketer?"
