England v India: Jonny Bairstow & Liam Plunkett star in hosts’ Cricket World Cup win. Exciting match to listen to on TMS - now England just need to maintain that level of performance. Perhaps the return of Jason Roy is the talisman the team needs 🏏
Got home from work in time to watch most of West Indies hitting 21 fours and 23 sixes in their ODI innings against England. Chris Gayle with 135 off 129 balls, including three fours and 12 sixes. Very impressive, very entertaining. England now need 361 to win. 🏏
Great to see BBC Radio 5 Sports Extra broadcasting ABC Grandstand’s live ball by ball coverage of the Australia vs India cricket Test series. I listened to a couple of hours of it when I couldn’t sleep in the early hours of this morning. Good quality commentary and good to see that Alison Mitchell is part of ABC’s commentary team. Will enjoy more during the nights to come, I’m sure.
Worcestershire set 158 to win in the T20 Blast Final. Another great bowling performance, especially by Ali and Brown. No particular affiliation, but I’ve been impressed by them today and hope Worcestershire prevail. 🏏
The good thing about the timing of the T20 Blast Finals Day is the return of England players to represent their counties – Moeen Ali, Joss Buttler and Keaton Jennings all appearing in the first semi-final – Worcestershire Rapids vs Lancashire Lightning 🏏
