Amazing that the test series with Pakistan was only a 2 test series but alas just like football and many other sports money is the Be-all and end-all Mr K.

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again!!!!

Agreed, a test series should always be at least three games. I am actually going to the ODI v Australia at Old Trafford on the 24th. 😎

Cost me about £89 I think. One of my Christmas presents this year was a years membership at the other Old Trafford so was able to purchase tickets in a good area earlier and at a discount.

And if England get bowled out for 57, it could be a very short expensive day !

The beauty of Test cricket is that there is time for the game to switch one way then another, both teams have a second innings/chance. Once a one day game goes one way, it gets very boring/predictable - great if it goes to the last ball but very few do. I'm obviously in a minority going by attendance figures !

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again!!!!

Lets hope the wicket at Old Trafford on the 24th is as good as todays strip, 742 runs scored in one day.

That is the vexed question Jim as different strips can be totally different.

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again!!!!

The wickets at old Trafford have been very true recently, unless there is a dramatic change in the weather I predict another shirt front.
