    Wonderful voices. This would be a big loss.

    One of those things that you assume will always be there in summer, but with no licence fee, no anti-siphoning law, and not much competition, if the commercial radio station doesn't want it, then it's gone.

    Made worse by Radio Sport's statement: "Radio Sport will continue to keep Kiwi cricket fans in the know across next summer with match updates, robust opinion, in-depth analysis and plenty of talkback." A classic example of the insulting, "you're getting less so we'll pretend it's more" public relations crap.
    That would be a darn shame as I really enjoy listening to NZ cricket via Radio Sport. Waddle and Coney are two of the more knowledgeable and enjoybale commentators in the game with the former being one of those voices that seems to be have been around forever. He is the voice of New Zealand, just lIke Tony Cozier was for West Indies cricket, and always reassuring to hear on TMS every three years or so.

    It sounds a bit like they'll try to do something like the BBC did without live access to the recent series in South Africa. A load of pundits gabbling on from a studio in London (or possibly Manchester) with Agnew doing the occasional live report on the phone from the ground. It was woeful, but sometimes preferable to the banality of the talksport commentators.

    Do cricket on the radio properly. It's not a big ask.

    Good day for Kyle Jamieson though.

    England women fell short of the target against Australia and the hosts will play India in the tri nations T20 final. Still, a good warm up for England ahead of the World T20.

    And they managed it. Fantastic for Bangladesh. India will be happy enough that in Jaiasawal they have by far the best batsman and in Bishnoi one of the best bowlers in the tournament.

    The u19 final is a classic, with Bangladesh needing 34 runs with 3 wickets left.

    Seems to be stating the obvious that the England set-up cannot deal with a genuine quick bowler of Jamaican descent. I am less convinced that the Jamaican factor is the key one given that there have also been other genuine quicks who rose and fell very quickly, from Harmison onwards, but it's possible that the team's multicultural sensitivity hasn't moved on as much as we would have liked to think since Devon Malcolm was so badly mishandled.

    Bangladesh really shouldn't have dropped him in single figures.

    Pakistan have another home Test, against Bangladesh in Pindi. The hosts are well on top of the first innings.

    The women's T20 tri-series in Australia is very tight after India impressively chased down 173 to beat the hosts. With one game left, between England and Australia, Australia need to win to reach the final. If they do win then all three teams will be tied on four points but Australia would be guaranteed to get through on NRR. Given how dominant Australia were in England last summer, it's good that they've been dragged back to the other two.

    India vs Bangladesh in the final of the under 19 world cup. India huge favourites after they crushed Pakistan in the semi-final.

    New Zealand can't catch a break in their T20 series. They've just lost three in five at the back end of a very doable run chase.

    I think what happens is that the team currently batting chooses the roller to start the day, so they choose the heavy roller to try and break up the pitch. If Sri Lanka had been put in straight away they would have had the choice of roller - I think they also get the choice in the change between innings.

    "The final day had started with Williams declaring Zimbabwe's second innings on 247 for 7 after just one ball: an uncharacteristic leg-stump half-volley by Suranga Lakmal that Sean Williams flicked over deep square leg for six.

    The shot brought up Williams' third Test fifty, but more importantly, Zimbabwe got the chance to use the heavy roller on a dry Harare deck at the start of the day. The idea presumably being to widen some of the cracks on the pitch, and give their bowlers a better chance of bowling out a team in the fourth innings of a Test for just the seventh time in their history."


    The above quoted from cricinfo. But can anyone tell me the pertinent rule on the words in bold above? If Zimbabwe had declared overnight, they couldn't have used the roller?

    Alas, not to be for Zimbabwe. In all truth their bowling attack is pretty weak and it showed today.

    184/3. It looks like SL would probably have got this target with more overs left, but then Zimbabwe would have set a bigger total. A draw seems fair given that rain spoiled Zimbabwe's plans to use all their wickets to set a higher target that would have exerted greater psychological pressure on SL.

    A glimmer of hope for Zimbabwe as Angelo Matthews goes for just 14. Sri Lanka are now batting for the draw I think as there won't be enough overs left. Zimbabwe need to take seven more wickets in something like a session and a half, so the draw is favourite at the moment. That could change if Mendis goes.

    The 9th and 10th highest successful run chases are 362 (also both with target 359) - one of these being the Stokes and Leach stand last year - so this will be no mean feat. If Sri Lanka can time a boundary at the right point then the 9th highest successful chase is on the cards.

    Sri Lanka seem to be progressing well here with Mendis and Fernando now looking set.
