    What a day at Old Trafford no sooner do Australia start showing their true potential and the whole things rained off. Australia deserved to win and with decent weather would have.

    Autograph Signings have taken place throughout the series with particular emphasis on the memorable  Lords Test.

    The last 5 days have been a lesson for players and fans alike not to become too complacent, things can so quickly go the other way, there is so certainly plenty to do at Chester-le- street starting Friday.

    Australia having declared overnight on 172/7 and England needing 232 to win the home side fell to pieces, with the scoreboard showing 35/3 Australia, in my opinion would have had no problem bowling the hosts out with a hefty 72.3 overs remaining. Talk about saved by rain!!!!

    Trent Bridge got England off to a cracking start which they followed up by hammering Australia at Lords opening the path to their fastest retention of Ashes since the 1928/29 series when they won the first three matches

    England may have retained the Ashes at this dismal show but they now need to win the series, which after yesterday’s display won’t be the 4-0 they are hoping for, with Australia gathering momentum 2-2 is not beyond the bounds of possibility.

    The selectors have been quick to act by including Durham fast bpwler Graham Onions and Chris Tremlett in the 13 man squad for the 4th Test.

    "While the players should be congratulated on retaining the Ashes there is still a lot of cricket left in this series and it is important that the players recover and refocus ahead of another crucial week of Test cricket," said England national selector Geoff Miller

    Sports autographs and Cricket Memorabilia will be available for the series later this month.

    Let’s look forward to a spectacular match at Durham on Friday.

  • England Level the ODI Series at McLean Park

    Posted on February 20, 2013 by Selby

    England Level the ODI Series at McLean Park Napier

    England 270 for 2 (47.4) defeat New Zealand 269 all out (48.5)

    The Tourist bounced back today defeating the Blackcaps at Napier by eight wickets, levelling the ODI series 1 – 1.

    Autograph Signings are taking place throughout the series.

    Alastair Cook (Ess) put the hosts into bat, the two openers Watling and Rutherford were quickly dismissed for 18 runs, both bowled by James Anderson (Lancs), caught by Cook.

    Williamson and Taylor put on 72 runs with Ross Taylor ending his innings on a 100 out to Anderson caught by Jos Buttler.

    Brendon McCullem batted well adding a further 74 runs off 36 balls before being caught by Chris Woakes (War) off Stuart Broad. The tail enders contributed only about a dozen runs between them ending the Blackcaps innings on 269 all out.

    James Anderson must be congratulated in my opinion on a match winning 5 wickets for 34 runs.

    Alastair Cook and Ian Bell (War) put on an 89 run opening stand setting the pace for a good start, followed up by Joe Root 79 not out and Jonathon Trott (War) 65 not out adding a further 121 runs for the 3rd wicket. Cook was out on 78 runs caught and bowled by Southee.

    Joe Root stood out playing consistently well, with a variety of strokes, Joe put on his 79 runs off 56 balls having survived two missed catches; his innings will leave selectors in a quandary on KP’s return to ODI.

    Cricket Memorabilia is available for series including the International Twenty-20s and the ODI.s

  • New Zealand v England Twenty20

    Posted on February 13, 2013 by Selby

    New Zealand v England Twenty20

    Cricket Memorabilia from the New Zealand v England Twenty20 series is fairly abundant and we hope to have a number of Autograph Signings at the end of the series.

    Following an excellent opening match in Auckland last Saturday the England side could not keep the momentum going and were outclassed at Seddon Park leaving the Black Caps with numerous openings and winning chances resulting in a New Zealand win by 55 runs to level the series 1 -1 going into the decider in Wellington on Friday.

    The effect on the ICC rankings was to demote England from 3rd place 6th

    A combination of Stuart Broad electing to field and putting in a below par bowling performance saw the writing on the wall for a NZ win.

    England conceded 38 runs off the last two overs; Skipper Brendon McCullen’s watchable innings of 74 off only 38 deliveries before exiting from a catch off Dernbach sealed the tourist’s fate.

    Joe Buttler hit form at the right time scoring 54 off 30 and Jade Dernbach’s 38/3 off 4 overs was encouraging going into the Wellington decider.

    Autograph signings will hopefully be on Friday I will keep you posted!!!
