  • South Australian bowlers make inroads against NSW in Sheffield Shield match in Adelaide

    South Australian bowlers make inroads against NSW in Sheffield Shield match in Adelaide

      AFTER suspecting they were victims of daylight robberies, South Australia’s bowlers turned into night-time stranglers of NSW in their Sheffield Shield match. The Blues were 9-227 at stumps on Saturday’s opening day at Adelaide Oval after a final-session collapse in the day-night fixture.

      From a powerful 1-147, NSW struggled from dusk onwards: they lost 8-77 against a disciplined Redbacks bowling attack inspired by captain Johan Botha.

      The South African-born spinner took 5-34 from 29 miserly overs, quick Joe Mennie claimed 2-36, while paceman Chadd Sayers and Daniel Worrall picked up a wicket each.

      Blues opener Nick Larkin top-scored with 78 and first drop Scott Henry made 56 - they put on 110 for the second wicket before both fell to rash shots.

      Henry smacked an innocuous Botha ball straight to short cover to end his knock.

      And Botha, in his next over, dismissed Larkin when the polished right-hander tried to cut a short, wide delivery but feathered an edge to wicketkeeper Tim Ludeman - one of the gloveman’s five catches on the day.

      The dismissals were the first and second in a costly slide, and also placated a Redbacks outfit seething at having a string of lbw shouts refused earlier in the day.

      The trend started in the third over when Ryan Carters appeared to be trapped plumb in front by Sayers, only for New Zealand umpire Wayne Knights to inexplicably decline the appeal.

      Sayers’ mood didn’t improve in the middle session when he had two lbw shouts against Larkin rejected by the same umpire - replays showed the batsman was extremely fortunate to survive both.

      Larkin kept his cool and produced a patient 173-ball innings, highlighted by some sweet offside drives, until his untimely demise.

      Botha and Mennie then turned the screws under lights, with the Redbacks seeking consecutive home wins, after downing Queensland by eight wickets in their season opener.

    • Quick off spinner in trouble!!

      Posted on November 8, 2014 by Selby

      Bangladesh fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain is the latest international to be reported for a suspect bowling action.

      The 24-year-old is the sixth bowler, and the first non off-spinner, to be reported by match officials since July.

      His action must be tested in the next 21 days at an International Cricket Council facility in either Cardiff or Brisbane.

      Hossain, who has played four Test matches, can continue bowling until the results are known.

      The right-armer has also played nine one-day internationals and nine Twenty20s.

      Pakistan spinner Saaed Ajmal has been suspended after analysis showed his arm bent more than the 15 degrees allowed.

      Sri Lanka off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake, New Zealand's Kane Williamson, Zimbabwe's Prosper Utseya were reported recently, Senanayake, and Williamson also subsequently banned from bowling.

    • Great pub for a beer

      Posted on October 17, 2014 by Selby

      Pub manager, Sophie Clifton-Forbes and assistant manager, Tania Hazard pictured outside the Test Match in West Bridgford.

      THE daughter of a Nottinghamshire cricketing legend is embarking on a two-week test to bring a West Bridgford pub back to its glory days.

      Sophie Clifton-Forbes has been managing the Test Match on Gordon Square with partner Tania Hazard for 18 months.

      But now the pair have got the go-ahead from Greene King for a £140,000 revamp of the grade II listed building.

      “It is quite bizarre that I have ended up back where I was born and where all my family came from to run this pub,” the 37-year-old said. “I used to drink in here as a teenager!

      “But it is great to be back to my roots and surrounded by all the history of my family.”

      Her father, Carlton Forbes, was born in Jamaica but moved to England and began his first-class cricket career with Notts in 1959. He died in 2009, but his memory will live in on in his local.

      “It has brought the memories back being here,” said Sophie. “Now we want to be able to bring the pub back to make it vibrant and new, whilst keeping that strong history.”

      The first thing to make a return will be the original wooden sprung dance floor from 1938 that the pair found had been under carpet for years. Tania said: “We want to bring it to life. We have lots of live music already and some people dance, but it will definitely encourage them more if there is a great space like this.”

      Next on the list is re-establishing the speakeasy-style cocktail bar upstairs, which the partners want to be filled with craft beer and mojitos as a secret getaway for visitors.

      The showstopper will be the tea room they are creating, with pretty set tables, real china and freshly made cakes.

      But there will also be a slice of Sophie’s father’s past in all the new finery. Tania said: “We both wanted to make sure he was remembered, so we have created a games room named the Carlton Room. It will be full of cricket memorabilia, but have modern games too, from darts through to giant jenga.

      “We want the place to shed its old-man’s pub reputation and become a place for everyone – from students through to tea dancers.”

      The pub will reopen on Tuesday, October 28.

    • End of season bad luck at Old Trafford

      Posted on September 27, 2014 by Selby

      Not surprised to see that Lancashire have left been relegated to Division 2 of the County Championship in their last match of the season

      Middlesex survived the same fate when poor weather at Old Trafford cost 14 overs on the last day 341/8 declared leaving 243 to make, impossible, a very disappointing outcome in spite of Lancs skipper Glen Chapple’s best efforts

      Junaid Khan 3/84 off 29 overs and Simon Kerrigan 3/106 off  48 played well but it wasn’t enough, what a shame!!!

      Lancs cricket memorabilia is always very popular so lets hope for a good 2015

    • The curse of the Doosra

      Posted on September 9, 2014 by Selby

      Amazed to hear that Pakistan’s number 1 bowler, offspinner Saeed Ajmal has been banned from bowling by the ICC due to a potentially suspect action( the Doosra), Ajmal, who has been Pakistan's lead spinner in Tests and ODI over the past few years, was formally reported at the 1st Test against Sri Lanka in August this must be a huge blow to Pakistani cricket.

      Cricket Collectables have always been keen on Pakistani Cricket Memorabilia and have signed cricket bats, balls and tour material all autographed by the player. It is one of our most popular sellers

      "An independent analysis was carried out by a team of experts at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, however the ban can be suspended at any time should Saeed decide to modify his action to within the 15 degree tolerance permitted

      Ajmal was previously reported for a suspect action in spring 2009 he was bowling the infamous Doosra, the well named Doosra is unique to off spin bowlers, the ball spins in the opposite direct direction to an orthodox off break and has proven to be very effective in recent one day internationals

      Cricket collectables are delighted by the way Ireland are playing at present beating Scotland at Malahide yesterday by 7 wickets, well done to Craig Young accounting for 5 of them on his International debut
