Last year has been a record year for England in cricket, we had the most ducks, collapses and lost 9 tests…..


I wonder if we can start with a win at Sydney……

Happy new year to all those who follow cricket may this year be the one where we see the revival of our teams.

I am sure his replacement even if it is a 50 year old will play well against us

Hope he recovers quick

One report said he actually caught it, not just a contact. If so, will be surprised if others dont get it given i think hes normally in the slips. Covid sadly our only chance of avoiding 5-0 as i think players have now lost heart as well as capability.

Usman Kawaja replacing him.

Darren Stevens would score a quadruple century and take 20 for 0 against this shower of shit.

He is named as one of the Cricketers of the year in Wisden for 2021.

One of the greatest all rounder never to play for England

Will they shuffle the batting order or will Khawaja bat lower down?

I am sure he is getting on, how old is he now I wonder

This Test is going to be a very telling test of their character for England players, have they regained their belief and pride to perform? or will they still be in a state of shock. With so much talk of players needed to be discarded, talk of Root needing to surrender the captaincy, and Silverwood be sacked and who takes over etc etc, it promises to be a Test match with a lot of questions needing to be answered.
Also will Australia be over confident and take their foot off the pedal? promises to be a fascinating game and hopefully England regain some pride.

Who cares its lost, and if we do well it will be said because the pressure was off.

Test cricket hadn't been invented when Stevens was in his prime.

They could be over confident but take their foot off the pedal? ffs they are playing England :)

FFs, talk about being whooshed

Haha sorry I thought you meant the chap who plays for Kent. Doh!

Worksop Palace 01-01-2022 10:25 AM

Absolutely fallen on my feet with this one. My monthly BT subscription falls due on 4th, the day the next tests starts. So I don’t have to watch it now. TFFT.

Lets hope the Aussie's let their guard slip;), and we can start the New Year with a smile on our face and that will be coming after Palace winning against West Ham and we sit comfortably in 8/9th position.:)

Keep it it for one month, you never know we may win this

And no I am not drunk considering it is New Year’s Day

And there's Test World C'Ship points at stake. The Aussies missed out the last Final by a tiny margin, so they will be determined that doesn't happen again.

Probably will now ive cancelled :D

But will be very hollow if so

Whilst I fully accept us to lose 0-5, I just think a bit of fight and cojones being shown would redeem some of the current shower.

the general consensus is that the team lack minerals, which is very damning.

A gritty century from somewhere wouldn't go amiss.

Broad must be going mad, surely a must for the last two tests.
