  • India v England ICC cricket memorabilia

    Posted on January 11, 2013 by Selby

    It looks as though England may retain top ICC one day rankings after a good start in the first ODI against India.

    With India evens and England 8/11 on the bookies are taking no chances and need to be more generous with their odds, as I write this betting has been suspended? However India are looking in with a chance  at 138/3 with the openers Rahane and Gambhir putting on 97 runs averaging around one run per ball.

    This series will provide lots of opportunities for some good cricket memorabilia

    England Captain Alastair Cook and Iain Bell put on an impressive opening stand of 158 before Bells wicket was taken by Ajinkya Rahane, ending his 85 run innings.

    Irishman Eoin Morgan scored 41 off 38 balls before departing due to a tremendous catch by bowler Ashok Dinda, Pieterson scored 44 before being caught off Dinda, tailenders Patel and Kieswetter added another useful 44 runs.

    It will be interesting to note the rule changes for the pace bowlers two bouncers allowed per over plus the field restricted to four players outside the fielding circle instead of five in the outfield.

  • England v India at Subrata

    Posted on December 21, 2012 by Selby

    England v India at Subrata

    Cricket collectables from the recent Test Series will be available on our website next week we have several presentation sets from the series and a good supply of signed tour itineraries, autographs, and programmes.

    It was great to see India back on form in the first Twenty20 at the Roy Sahara Stadium although disappointing for England that they won by 5 wickets.

    Opener Alex Hales(Notts) set the pace with his 50 scored off 35 balls before his wicket was taken by left arm spinner Yuvraj Singh, this escalated when Luke Wright and leading Twenty20 batsman Captain Eoin Morgan were dismissed in the space of 2 overs both caught Rahane bowed Singh who ended up with 3 very valuable wickets for 19 runs.

    England were never able to regain momentum, India impressed in the field, they were so much better than in the tests.

    England bowling was below par; Jade Dernbach (Surrey)delivering 3 wides in his first over amongst the 10 conceded during the match, Bresnan was top England bowler with 2/26

    The top Indian scorer was Singh on 38 off 21 deliveries caught by Meaker(Surrey) bowled Wright(Leic) as a best score that more or less tells the story.

    Cricket memorabilia from the current Twenty20 is in demand and a good assortment should be available.

    The 2nd and last match of the series should make great viewing in Mumbai tomorrow.

  • Test Cricket India v England Mumbai

    Posted on November 20, 2012 by Selby

    Test Cricket India v England Mumbai
    No doubt that Alistair Cook made selection mistakes in the first test at Ahmedabab which led to a nine wicket hammering, there’s no way that left arm spinner Panesar should have been left out of the side, and he would have been ideally suited to the wicket.
     Despite Cook putting on 176 and Matt Prior 91 to keep England in the game on day 4, a draw was still out of reach, Ojha claiming both wickets. There was no help coming from the three England pace bowlers who could only muster 1/245.
    The closely following 2nd test in Mumbai on Friday will need a selection rethink if England are to level the series, the middle order batting of Jonathon Trott, Ian Bell, Kevin Peterson and Patel contributed only 68/8 scored over combined innings, which was disappointing to say the least.
    I would like to see 4 changes for Mumbai.
    Ian Bells decision to fly home solves one problem and leaves the door open for Jonny Bairstow.
    In addition I would like to see Finn, Panesar, and Ireland’s Eoin Morgan replace Broad, Bresnan, Patel and Ian Bell.
    India will get plenty of encouragement on Friday with the Mumbai Cricket Association presenting Tendulkar and Sehwag with silver salvers prior to the test, Tendulkar honoured for his 100 centuries and Sehwag for his 100th test appearance. Signed photos will make great cricket memorabilia.
    Time for England to put more reliance the spinners, hopefully, Swan, Patel, Panesar with the support of some decent England batting can turn things around in this critical test.
