    I'll take Kevin S's wildly inaccurate speculation as a huge compliment

    Comment


      Did Aggers' "cunt" rants only go the intended target or do such communications go public automatically?

      It also seems to be another double standard in relation to Danny Baker. Agnew conveys some thoughts about a West Indian fast bowler that may betray unconscious racism, calls his accuser a cunt when he's called on it, gets slap on wrist.

        Mark Wood doesn't seem overly bothered by the Jofra Archer thing: "“Jofra has natural raw pace whereas I feel I have to bust a gut to get it up there,” Wood said. “It’ll be good to have two pace lads in at the same time and see if we can really ruffle a few feathers. It will be interesting to see how far back the wicketkeeper stands for him and me.”

        Agnew definitely has some old school blinkers on a fair amount of the time, viewing the game through the lens of happy-go-lucky West Indian cricketers, fickle Pakistani fielders, etc.

          ODI cricket is less interesting when a match looks done with 40 overs to spare.

            Uh-oh.

              Good from Stokes. Wood has wheels, when he’s fit.

                Rashid's run-out of Babar today was absolutely astonishing.

                  Balletic. And his c&b wasn't too shabby either. He's perhaps the player England would find it hardest to do without at the moment.

                    The first of three women's ODIs between England and West Indies in Leicester today. This is the only Women's Championship fixtures until October. West Indies could do with winning at least one of these matches if they want to finish high enough up the table to qualify directly to the world cup in 2021.

                      Two out of two so far and both by huge margins for England. Yesterday's win required a DLS reduction.

                      I prefer the way the women's wear the new kit with dark trousers, too.



                      There's another Championship series which has just concluded 1-1 after Pakistan and South Africa won one match each and tied the decider - only the sixth ever tied WODI match,

                      I think an England win in the third and final match with West Indies will confirm their place in the 2021 World Cup. That match is to be at Chelmsford on Thursday

                        A win secured but apparently WC qualification is not yet guaranteed. Anyway, have a look at Fran Wilson's incredible catch here:

                              Or if you fancy some T20, then how about Guernsey v Norway?

                              Official ICC stream

                              Innings break at the moment and Guernsey need 96 to win from a reduced 16 over allocation. This match is part of a tournament which is an early stage of the World T20 Qualifiers.

                                The Guernsey stream is the better one. with commentary and more than one camera.

                                  Gonna be a quick one. Many, many wides on that first over and Guernsey have 13 on the board already.

                                  These matches are now official T20Is after the ICC granted T20I status to all its members. This should become Guernsey's first ever T20I win, then.

                                    Two overs, and Guernsey are now 25/0,

                                      There will be a couple of other T20I games starting at quarter to four - the key one is Jersey v Italy, both with three wins from three. Only the top team from this competition goes on to the next phase - the 14-team qualifier in UAE in October - featuring this lot, who will be something of a step up in quality.

                                        One of the Guernsey players is called Luke Le Tissier. Here he is - got to be a relation to Matt, hasn't he? Nephew?

                                          Couple of slip ups by the hosts now and Norway take some smart catches. GRN 28/2 (3.3/16), target 96.

                                            These wides are going to be Norway's undoing.

                                              Currently batting for Guernsey is the intimidating-sounding Josh Butler.

                                                62/2 (10/16), target 96.

                                                  Butler holes out rather tamely.

                                                  67/3 (11/16)
                                                  29 needed from 30 balls.

                                                  The commentator says there have been no successful run chases in this tournament so far.

                                                    Oooh, another wicket! Have Guernsey got the batting depth needed to get over the line now?
