    England players not wanting to leave their families whilst the panic continues at home is a good point and the whole idea will never get of the ground. However, domestic cricket being cancelled in the West Indies is a precaution, there have been very few cases on the cricket playing islands - the sum for all of Antigua, Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, Guyana, St Lucia, St Vincent, Grenada and Anguilla is 37 as of today, and just about all of these are visitors to the island.

    There are a few interesting articles comparing malaria versus covid19 and the startling inverse relationship ie countries with malaria have little/no covid-19 and vice-versa.

    Most of the efforts to find a cure/vaccine for covid-19 ppear to be based around chloroquine, which is quinine based and has long been used to protect against malaria. The results so far have apparently been highly encouraging although Trump did jump the gun a little by saying the solution was approved only to be shouted down as not enough testing had been performed yet. In desparation doctors in China and Korea are reported to have treated patients with Chloroquine and the number of deaths has dramatically fallen. Germany has reported just 44 deaths from 16,666 reported cases - Chloroquine is made by Bayer.........

    Chloroquine will apparently not be a 100% cure eg people with Kidney problems or diabetes ( that's me ! ) but maybe be a solution for many eg pnemonia/breathing related sufferers.

    On February 26, 2020, the UK Government supposedly added chloroquine to the list of medicines that cannot be exported from the UK.......

    True or not, I'm now drinking Gin & Tonics for medicinal reasons !

    Not a chance. The players don't want to play while their families are in self-isolation, and they might infect each other. Domestic West Indies cricket is already suspended.

    The Over 50s World Cup cricket competition was called off earlier this week, part way through the third game. I have a couple of old team-mates in the Welsh team, they were battered by South Africa, beat Namibia fairly easily and were looking to be on the wrong end of a thumping before the game against Pakistan was called off. I think they have flights home sorted and had a fantastic time in Cape Town while they were there.

    Quite a low scoring affair too, that first ODI.

    Very possibly, but they will be worried about their families and their minds would not be able to focus on cricket.

    Aus v NZ ODIs are being played in empty stadia.

    A spectator at the women's T20 final has tested positive.

    Perhaps the England cricketers might have been safer staying in Sri Lanka ?

    Very minor issue compared to all the serious stuff, but I think the ICC Test Championship is now fucked. They won't get the games in.

    I thought it was in the bag but ended up dead level with Ireland winning the Super Over 12 runs to 8.

    Afghanistan need 52 runs in 48 balls, with 8 wickets in hand, to win 3-0 v Ireland (T/20 in India).

    In commentary they mentioned that Boult and Southee have played together in 28 of NZ's 100 test wins.

    This was NZ's 100th Test win, in Ross Taylor's 100th Test.

    They took a long while to get going. I can remember their 10th (1978 v England, under Boycott's captaincy). Their 50th was this century (England 2002).

    It's rare for people to go to New Zealand for a test series and enhance their reputations, and India are heading to defeat in the first test. They got the worst of the conditions, but their second innings batting especially has been pretty weak.

    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.

    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.
