Joe Root Losing Wicket Consistently between 50 and 100

Joe Root is cross with himself to have been losing his wicket between 50 and 100 more often than not.

The other batsmen of this era who are being tipped to be future legends are all frequent century scorers, but, Root, although he is as consistent as anyone else and averages as high as anyone else as well or even higher, has struggled to record three figures too many times.

England lost the first game of the ongoing twenty 20

England lost the first game of the ongoing twenty 20 series against South Africa at Newlands, Cape Town yesterday.

It was Chris Morris again who did the trick for South Africa scoring the required 14 runs in the last over of the innings.

Chasing a very low score on a flat deck, the Proteas made it difficult for themselves as they tried to be overcautious in the chase.

And at one stage, the game had almost slipped out of their hands.

But, thanks to those two timely boundary strikes off Morris’ bat, they managed to reach the target and took an unbeatable lead of one nil.

Australia beat England in the Old Trafford series

Australia beat England in the Old Trafford series decider yesterday.

The bowlers starred in that game for the Kangaroos as they bundled England out for just 138 on a flat wicket.

When England won the toss in the morning, it seemed they had snatched great advantage as batting would be quite easy in bright sunshine.

But, Australia broke through in the very first over.
Mitchell Starc, the left arm quick who was back in the XI for Australia after being rested for the 4th game, trapped Jason Roy plumb in front twice.

England might make two changes in the playing XI

England might make two changes in the playing XI for the third game of the ongoing Ashes series.

One would obviously be Jonny Bairstow replacing Gary Ballance who has been dropped after a run of poor shows in the recent test matches.

Apart from that, there also have been talks that Mark Wood might have to make space for Steven Finn.

Wood was pretty unimpressive in both the innings at Lord’s. His pace was down and he did not look penetrative which prompted some of the experts to say that the selectors should think about resting him.

Cricketing world is of the view that Australia

Almost the entire Cricketing world is of the view that Australia would be able to break the jinx of losing three consecutive Ashes series on English soil this time around, but, Andrew Flintoff doesn’t think so.

As per Flintoff, the series will end up with the result of 2-1 in England’s favour.

Flintoff, who was one of the Ashes heroes for England in the last decade, reckons there isn’t much to choose from the current squads of England and Australia. England might actually be a little stronger if the conditions are taken into account.

England will be playing a One Day International match against Ireland

England will be playing a One Day International match against Ireland this summer under the captaincy of James Taylor.

Most of the England limited-over regulars would not be available for that game.

Some are on the West Indies tour with the test squad, while, some are busy playing in the Indian Premier League.
However, giving Taylor the captaincy has raised some eyebrows.
