    Somerset twenty 20
    Alfonso ensured a Somerset win in the twenty 20 against South African Warriors at Chinnaswammy, accompanied by a good bat from Kieswetter, which was the only creditable display at the crease, with Thomas player of the match on the strength of his two wickets and catching Prince for ten.
    Good luck in the Semis.

  • Fred Trueman Cricket Memorabilia

    Posted on September 7, 2011 by Selby



    I recently acquired several examples of Fred Trueman Cricket memorabilia from a private collector in Yorkshire, which was indeed his home county.

    Fred(1931-2006) Yorks, England, fast bowler, represented England in 67 test matches notably taking over 300 wickets, which he reached at the Oval in  1964.

    In the second half of the 50s teamed with his fellow opener Brian Statham the two cricketing heroes made a formidable new ball partnership.

    The Trueman era began 1951 when he hit the headlines taking 8 for 68 against Notts and in the return match at Trent Bridge 8 for 53, His very quick bowling style included outswing inswing and he was a master of the swinging Yorker.

    On his retirement from first class cricket in 1969 a natural raconteur, he became a popular speaker on the after dinner circuit, known for his mixture of coarse jokes and humorous tales, he became part of the TV show Indoor League and had a regular feature column in a Sunday newspaper

    Controversial in his public life he was certainly very decisive when in action on the field.

    Fred Trueman cricket memorabilia that I acquired is listed below:

    MCC tour of the West Indies 1953/54 hand signed Fred Trueman framed presentation

    Yorks 1955 a hand signed presentation, from a season where Fred took 153 wickets at an average of 16 runs.

    Yorks 1959 a hand signed photo taken when they won the championship outright Fred taking 140 wickets in his 30 first class appearances, lots of catches as well.

  • Don Bradman cricket memorabilia

    Posted on August 28, 2011 by Selby




    Don Bradman cricket memorabilia is highly collectable, in fact I have one particular hand signed sepia press photograph of my father and Bradman walking out to toss up when the “Invincibles” played Lancashire in May 1948 at the Old Trafford 3 day match, this remains part of my family collection.

    I had the privilege of being introduced to Don Bradman at Lords in the late 90’s and what a pleasure it was.

    Don Bradman (1908-2001) New South Wales was without question incomparable in his status as an iconic cricketer he was renowned for his outstanding abilities on the field followed later by his contributions as Chairman of the Australian board of control and as a member of the National Selection Committee. He was awarded a well deserved Knighthood in 1949 for his services to cricket.

    Bradman’s  phenomenal batting  performance pre and post war so concerned the 1932/33 touring  side that in an attempt to curb Bradman’s batting domination a meeting was scheduled at the Piccadilly Hotel London between four Nottinghamshire players England Captain Douglas Jardine, a player who was obsessive in his will to win, Captain Arthur Carr, and two skilful fast bowlers Harold Larwood, and  Bill Voce,

    The purpose of the meeting was to analyse the style in which Australia had toured England in 1930, Don Bradman’s batting had dominated the series, averaging 140 runs Australia won the series 2-1.

    The season of 1932-33 saw the introduction of bodyline bowling a decision which was to test the Anglo Australian relationship to the very limit.  Bradman adapted to the bowling attack in the unusual manner of moving around the crease towards the leg side, away from the  line of the ball, cutting the delivery into the comparatively open offside mid field.

    Bradman went on to average 56.57 runs an average which although significantly below his usual statistics was never the less an outstanding performance given the circumstances.

    Bodyline series cricket memorabilia  is regarded as highly desirable to collectors, of particular interest are mono sepia photographs, completed signed and printed scorecards, programmes and autographs.

    Great if ironic to see Eoin Morgan is taking over from Alistair Cook to captain England in the one day international, when he plays his former countrymen  this week at Clontarf Cricket Club Dublin. The makings of a great day out.

  • Body line series hand signed cricket memorabilia

    Posted on August 17, 2011 by Selby




    There is only a limited amount of hand signed cricket memorabilia available depicting the 1932/33 Australian test series, famous for “fast leg theory.” This is the series where captain Jardine is said to have advised bowlers Larwood and Voce to adapt to a bodyline style of delivery. The objective of this was to contain Bradman’s skilful runmaking on the hard fast Australian bowling surfaces.

    Under these playing conditions Bradman still achieved an enviable average of 56.5 .

    I was fortunate to purchase an excellent example of cricket memorabilia, from the series recently at Knights sporting auctions.

    M.C.C. tour of Australia (Bodyline) 1932/33. Large and original mono action photograph from the 1st Test match played at Sydney on the 2nd-7th December 1932. The photograph shows 'Sutcliffe, when 43, played one from O'Reilly on to his wicket without dislodging the bails. Note the amazement of McCabe and Oldfield as the ball trickles away from the middle stumps'. The photograph, by 'Kodak', with title to top border 'Ist Test' and title to lower border. Excellent image. The photograph measures 15.5"x12.5", framed and glazed, overall 22"x21". Good/ very good condition. Very rare in this larger format

  • Test at the oval

    Posted on August 17, 2011 by Selby



    Ahead of Thursdays final test at the Oval It is interesting to note that of the 10 Tests they’ve played here, India have lost only twice yet somehow not surprisingly the team seem resigned to their fate.  The whitewash I forecast after Trent Bridge is now a reality; let’s just hope that on a wicket known for high scores that there is plenty of good cricket to look forward to!!!

  • Edgbaston test

    Posted on August 10, 2011 by Selby



    With Virender Sehwag back in the side it will be interesting to see if he can recapture his 2008 form against England, he has little preparation but if on form could still make a huge impression on the series.

    Openers Sehwag and Gambhir  can compensate for  Zaheer Khan, exit from the series however the weather at Edgbaston could be the deciding factor.

    Definite value in betting on an England whitewash in the series.

  • Glamorgan cricket

    Posted on August 8, 2011 by Selby



    It is bad luck for Adam Shantry the bowling allrounder (Glamorgan) has been forced into premature retirement at only 28yrs due to a recurring knee injury, after  32 first class matches, 90 wickets averaging 24 runs. Good luck for the future
