The time I heard this news my reaction was like ” Woo, ok. What? What the hell are u talking about?”
Oh, I liked his bowling so much. Always though he could make in the starting XI in this Ashes. Oh god, everything spoiled.
Well, we have to respect his decision. Happy retirement man.

Pace star retires as Nathan Lyon suffers concussion

I don’t want to talk with people in such a way but I must say, what the hell are you talking about? I mean seriously?

You talk about behaviour? Since his return after sandpaper-gate incident can you show be anything wrong he did? Anything?

Well, I admit he had a horrible Ashes that’s true. He could not do well in India series too, but you know he was injured that time.

If you compare him with others openers across the world what di you see? Far better, no doubt.

You talking about his IPL poor outings? What the hell is this IPL? JUST A FRANCHISE LEAGUE. I don’t care if he does well here or not because playing for national country and for franchise leage is a whole different thing for me. Obviously if you can do well that’s good but if not that doesn’t mean you are ugly. I don’t even know why people care about this IPL so much, it’s a dumb tournament that is destroying cricket.

We need to stop carrying David Warner

Ian, yea. . I don’t mind playing few t20 games but these t20 league are just kind of ‘ wak thu ‘. So, disappointed. Even players trying to overlook the glory of the Ashes.

Player withdrawals risk turning Ashes into farce

Jeff, yea. I just get astonished how t20 matches specially t20 league(rubbish game) changed the whole cricket. Shame!

Player withdrawals risk turning Ashes into farce

I basically did not get the point. I know it’s hard for mental health to be in quarentine for a long time but when players go for the IPL, they remain in the qurentine with specific rules but they have no objections. When it comes playing for the national team they have tons of uh ahs.
Can anyone explain me why this happens?

Got it 😁

Does Bangladesh have any real chance at the T20 World Cup?

No, actually I said that as the group stage purpose.. at least they are much stronger than Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland.

Does Bangladesh have any real chance at the T20 World Cup?

Might be hard, I am not so much optimistic though but you know, WC means there is always a chance like FIFA WC or Champions League.

Does Bangladesh have any real chance at the T20 World Cup?

Jeff, throwing a match might be hard but considering situation that might be helpful.

Does Bangladesh have any real chance at the T20 World Cup?

Yea bowling is the strength. Lets see how far they can do good.

Does Bangladesh have any real chance at the T20 World Cup?

Paul, i mean the chance of winning the trophy. It’s likely they pass the qualify round. Agree, they have to go match by match.
N.B. I choosed a different headline but editor had a different idea too. 😁

As a Bangladeshi, I hope we win 5-0 and keep the winning mojo and head over to the T20 WC.

Bangladesh earns maiden T20 win over NZ

Just Nuisance, yep, he took celabration to another level.

Dale Steyn was sheer fast-bowling beauty

Yeap. That is his speciality

“I reckon his body will be thanking him”, 😁 Right paul.

Nice article paul.
I also don’t think Rishabh Pant is a no 6 batsman for test cricket. He can bat at 7 and let Jadeja to play at 6, who knows may be at 5 but at least 6.

The opposite of a 'big, smiley dressing room': Takeaways from the third England-India Test

I think, Mark Wood caould be a real game changer. He is the quickest, can bowl 90 mile per hour regulaly and can hit the pitch hard. Though I feel he sometimes misses the length and bowl way short than usual.

England’s bowlers could be in for a world of hurt in Australia

I like this article. Actually, England’s batting order has been a real concern.
I don’t understand why England play Buttler as a keeper when Bairstow in the XI. Bairstow is a better keeper then Buttler.
Also mention, England gave Buttler so many chances because of his explosive batting at the end of the innings. I am not sure if that worked though he did well in some occasions. Nothing against him but Ben foakes deserves a real run in the side.
Curran’s white ball batting has been developed significantly. But he did not play sufficient FC matches before this series. He is struggling probably because of lack of match time.

England’s batting woes go well beyond 1-2-3

Well, a good analysis. Here are some things from my perspective :
Assuming fit, I think we don’t have to think about for Finch’s form too much. Firstly, he is really a class act and an international gun. Secondly, a partner playes a big role to other patner. They both have played a lot with cricket with one another and has a real connection and communication between them. I think when he get Warner by his side, he feels more comfortable and can play his natural game. Same doesn’t happen with others partners, may be. Thirdly, if he will fail extreamly, that I can never wish, we have his backups.
Really excited about Inglish though I am not sure if he will be in the starting XI.
Just one selectors could do is to keeping Andrew Tye as reserves. Nothing against Ellis or sams but I thing Tye didn’t get justice. He was with the team since England tour last year till the end and got dropped from the WC squad. Can you imagine the frustration? He got a few chances and did well enough to keep his place at least as reserves. Again he is a wicket taker and his slower, knuckle balls, cutters would be helpful in pitches like UAE specially in death overs. I am a big fan of George Bailey but I can’t say this is a right decision.

'Much needed reinforcements': The squad carrying Australia's World Cup hopes

I hope too. And looking forward for ur next article.

Who will wear the baggy green with so many Test stars on T20 World Cup duty?

Bascically, I am not a fan of this kind of scheduling. Australia may have some backups but a growing test team like Afganistan don’t have. This match is nothing but a benifit for Australia as they probably want to see how their backups perform ahead of Ashes. But for Afghanistan it’s tough.

Jeff, right, not too many days ago, against Bangladesh was his last match. Mujib may have his chance though.

Thanks a lot paul. It’s nice to have some feedback from an expert someone like u. I hope I will to write here more often.

Henriques is already 34. He showed some form in FC cricket. But I am not sure if selectors would give him another chance though I think age should not be a factor.

Who will wear the baggy green with so many Test stars on T20 World Cup duty?

McDonald, Thanks man.
Swepson is with the WC t20 squad.So, It will be hard for him to get in the test squad like other key players.
