  • Australia v England at the Adelaide Oval - how fitting that it actually was "Australia day"

    Posted on January 27, 2014 by Selby


    It was "Australia Day" yesterday,  How fitting and unsurprising that the Aussies celebrated  with a win at the Adelaide Oval

    England chasing a 218 target  fell short of the mark by 5 runs when they were dismissed for 212  with just 2 deliveries remaining - The hosts totally dominated the One Day International series by 4 matches to 1, as they did  during the  Test series which culminated in only the 3rd, 5-0 whitewash in more than 130 years of Ashes Test cricket   (1920-21 and 2006-07)

    Cricket memorabilia is available for the complete ODI and Test series with the emphasis on signed cricket bats, tour paraphenalia , signed scorecards and autographed photographs

    Michael Clarke elected to bat which was probably in retrospect a mistake as most of his low to middle order batsmen made little impression. George Bailey played well with a top score of 56 off 74 balls before being caught by Ben Stokes (3/43) off Stuart Broad (3/31), the two leading bowlers.
    With a target of just 218 runs to make a much needed second consecutive win, England appeared to the favourites but were soon in trouble at 29/2, Joe Root put on 55 with a contribution of 39 from Ireland's Eoin Morgan, however it wasn't to be, the five tailenders went for a combined total of 29 runs

    Clint McKay 3/36 and Nathan  Coulter - Nile 3/34 led the bowling averages leaving the hosts with their 9th International win of the tour. Faulkner was awarded "man of the match"Aaron Finch was nominated "man of the series" having contributed two centuries

    Australia are now Number 1 in the One Day International rankings displacing India

    Cricket memorabilia will be in demand from the forthcoming Twenty20 series staring on the 29/1/14 in Hobart, 2 days later at the MGC Melbourne finishing on Feb 2nd in Sydney, maybe this will give the tourists a chance to show their mettle!!!

  • Cricket at Malahide - Ireland v England

    Posted on September 4, 2013 by Selby


    Malahide Cricket Club was the place to be yesterday as Ireland took on England at the Dublin ground in front of an excited capacity crowd.

    Cricket Memorabilia from ODIs is always popular and there are a growing number of collectors now who concentrate on Irish matches.

    England fielded a much depleted side with Broad, Cook, Bell, Anderson, Swann, Pieterson, Root and Jonathon Trott, having a well-earned rest from the ODIs following their Ashes Victory last month

    Captain Eoin Morgan captained the England side which is notable in itself as he is the first of only two cricketers to score a One day International century for both England and Ireland.

    It is understandable that the predominantly Irish crowd were a bit agitated as they are used to seeing Eoin leading Ireland, Eoin hails from Dublin, and he played 23 ODIs for Ireland before switching to England following the 2007 World Cup.

    England won the toss and put Ireland in to bat, Skipper Porterfield “opener” put on 112 runs before being clean bowled by Rankin, his lively innings included one six and fourteen boundaries. Rankin must have improved his chances of touring with England this winter.

    Ireland finished on 269/7 after 50 overs with no other notable batting performances, in response England made 274/4 in 43 overs which included a record ODI 5th wicket stand of 226 runs, Morgan and Ravi Bopara scoring 124 and 101 respectively, both batsmen not out.

    It was not all plain sailing for England who found themselves in trouble early on at 48/4 it was then in the fifteenth over that Ravi and Morgan made their challenge. Tim Murtagh who made his First Class debut in 2000 for Surrey, bowled well taking 3 wickets for 33.

    Altogether it was a great day for spectators and for Irish Cricket

    We expect to have Cricket Collectables from the match on our website later this week including Autographs, signed cricket bats and official signed scorecards .
