HENRY: Smith’s appointment means it’s time for the tyros

HENRY: Smith's appointment means it's time for the tyros

5 days ago

The Nathan Lyon inspired victory in Adelaide will not be repeated in Brisbane – that’s the 12 wickets bit, not necessarily the victory bit. The grass will be greener, the footmarks will not be as deep and the finger spinners will not be reaping the rewards of close-in fieldsmen suffocating prodding batsmen and deafening umpires […]

HENRY: England capitulate as Australia flourish

HENRY: England capitulate as Australia flourish

7 Jan 2014

31.4 overs. A single session of cricket. Capitulation, surrender and embarrassment. And that was just the final Test. The term ‘Test’ may have to be revisited. The contest between Australia and England was termed that in the late 1890’s because of the intense struggles between the master and colonists. The Ashes were a symbol of […]

30 Dec 2013

I am pretty much an optimist when it comes to cricket results (and I am on record as predicting an Australian 2-1 win) but in my weirdest dreams I hadn’t foreseen this shellacking of our northern visitors.

18 Dec 2013

As the ball looped lazily toward short leg from Jimmy Anderson’s self-preserving fend I had ample time for a 24-year-old flashback. Just before George Bailey swallowed the Kookaburra I could see Boonie sweeping Nick Cook to backward square for the boundary that regained the Ashes (in the UK for the first time in 55 years). […]

HENRY: Life’s a Mitch right now for the English batsmen

HENRY: Life's a Mitch right now for the English batsmen

10 Dec 2013

Test victories at Adelaide Oval are very often hard earned. The pitch has forever lacked a green flavour, drop in or live in: brown, browner and brownest being the favoured shades. The weather is often hot rather than warm, the pitch bakes and cracks under the Central Australian sun, the dry air sapping its moisture, […]

England crumble as Australia seize Ashes momentum

24 Nov 2013

Momentum. Mass times Velocity. Momentum is a scientific definition of moving objects and the ability for them to be accelerated or be slowed and stopped with a proportionate outside force. Basically, the faster bodies move, the harder they are to stop. The concept of ‘momentum’ is often applied to the progress of teams: business teams, […]
