Quote:
South Africa wicketkeeper Mark Boucher has retired from international cricket following the eye injury he suffered during Monday's tour game against Somerset.
The 35-year-old required three hours of surgery in Taunton on Monday night and, after being released on Tuesday morning, it was initially confirmed he would leave the tour.


Sad end to a remarkable career.

Really is one of my favourite cricketers, his will to win was second to none, even considered going to that game.

Quote:
Former England cricket captain Adam Hollioake has become the latest sporting hero to be toppled by a failed property venture.
The ex-captain of the England one-day cricket team suffered a spectacular fall from grace this week, as he appeared in court over 14 million debts from a property venture that went wrong.
Now bankrupt, the 40-year-old has even taken up cage fighting in an attempt to scrape some money together.




Wow. Shocked

England's day by far, 267-3 is a great platform with Cook there and plenty of shot makers to come. We should push on the run rate and bat for as long as possible. 500 wouldn't be impossible if one of Bell/Bopara/Prior get a score. Our batting line up is so deep.

I have a feeling Cook will be out early tomorrow.

Don't ask why.

The Oval is such a flat, batting wicket. 500 should certainly be within the realms of possibility, setting up an inevitable draw.

Off to watch it tomorrow. Not sure if I want the sunshine and even-more favourable batting conditions, or a bit of moisture in the air.

Can't say the draw is inevitable without seeing both teams bowl. Will also spin round corners by the 4th/5th day. Swann >>> Tahir as well so that should give us a big advantage.

South Africa well on top. England need Kallis/Amla out before close, and to limit the damage. Keep them under a lead of 100. Draw best result realistically for England now.

1st test at the Gabba vs. Sorthh Auurrrficahh was a draw. Captain Michael Clarke scored 259, he's so much better than that Ponting guy

Good start for India in the first test. Hoping we cream England as badly as they did back in England. Still won't be that satisfactory, I don't feel India achieve much winning in India.

SA won the third and final test in Perth to take the series 1-0. Not the best send off for Punter but can't complain, SA proved why they're the best test side in the world over the last few days.

Hashim Amla = Class

To all the non-Kiwis on here, how does it feel having a competently run cricket team? You know, one that doesn't alienate one of their only world-class players, and cut down any chance we ever have for success.

Must be nice...

The worst thing about this entire debarcle is that Taylor was forced onto Hesson in the first place. If Hesson had his way as soon as he stepped into the job Taylor would not have been capatin.

Forcing a captain on a coach or vice versa is only going to create tension and issues. This has been bubling under the surface for a while with Taylor and Hesson, Hesson has wanted Taylor to not be his captain ever since he took the job. And honestly after their performances up to and including the first test nobody would have blamed him for wanting a leadership change. Then all of a sudden they turn it on for the second test and now it is the worst thing to ever happen?

The way that it has been done is not the most pleasant, but Ross Taylor could have handled this a hell of a lot better too, he is not absent of blame in this situation yet the media and the fans are out there painting him as a perfect little boy who has never done anything wrong in his life.
