  • Cricket Autographs England v New Zealand Test Series

    Posted on May 20, 2013 by Selby


    Cricket Autographs and Memorabilia were high on the list for many fans attending the 1st Test at Lords yesterday.

    Stuart Broad supported by James Anderson devastated the Tourist batting as they were dismissed for a mere 68 runs in their 2nd innings with England securing their first Test victory of the season on a 170 run lead.

    Only two Kiwi players - Neil Wagner and BJ Watling - made double figures as New Zealand claimed tenth position for the lowest scoring in a Test at Lords.

    Tim Southee,  6 wicket for 50 runs should have left the Kiwis in good standing, but this was enough to fire Stuart Broad into action,  claiming 5 wickets from 35 deliveries before lunch making  up for his disappointing tour of India during the winter.

    Stuart Broad’s final tally 7/44 was reminiscent of his fine bowling against the West Indies also at Lords (7/72) in May 2012, on that occasion Anderson was also prevalent dismissing number 2 &3 Powell and Edwards.

    Stuart Broad cricket memorabilia was particularly sought after as you would imagine.

    The 2nd Investec Test is at Headingley on Friday 24 May not to be missed with the momentum England now have, it might be worth a punt.

  • England v New Zealand Cricket Memorabilia

    Posted on May 18, 2013 by Selby

     James Anderson s 300th Test wicket (81 Tests) wasn’t enough to hold back New Zealand’s determined effort to win the 1st Test at Lords, at start of play today Paddy Power was still offering 11/1 on a tourist win, while I think a close look at the weekend weather forecast may lead to a draw.

    Cricket Memorabilia from this series will be very collectable and signings are taking place during the series, of particular interest to collectors are signed cricket bats, scorecards, autographs and tour itineraries.

    England need to concentrate on getting NZ out for under 232 followed by a big 2ind innings, the bowling talents of Southee Wagner and Boult who seem more than capable of restricting runs and getting wickets will not make things easy

    Ian Botham still remains England’s leading wicket taker on 383 followed by Bob Willis and Fred Trueman.

    Cricket Collectables pertaining to any of the Top 10 bowlers is a great way to start a memorabilia collection.

  • Jimmy Anderson hopes for wickets record

    Posted on March 21, 2013 by Selby

    .

    Jimmy Anderson is looking at the New Zealand v England Test at Eden Park as a further step towards becoming England’s leading wicket taker.

    Anderson needs only 3 wickets to surpass Derek Underwood’s tally of 297 wickets before concentrating on the top 3 bowlers. As he moves in the direction of Ian Botham’s record of 383 wickets taken over a total of 102 matches he is not helped by the New Zealand surfaces which have so far been flat and relatively unresponsive.

    Cricket memorabilia from the New Zealand v England Test and ODI series is very popular especially signed cricket bats and match used cricket balls, so far this winter in the Southern Hemisphere has been excellent for both.

    Having averaged an enviable 30 wickets per year so far it is really about all about how long he can continue playing at Test level. Best of luck to him.

    It is interesting to note the following stats:

    Ian Botham                   383 wickets per 102 matches played (28.4)

    Bob Willis                      325 wickets per 90   matches played (25.2)

    Freddie Trueman         307 wickets per 67 matches played (21.5)

    Derek Underwood      297 wickets per 86 matches played (25.8

    Jimmy Anderson         295 wickets per 79 matches played (30.4)

    As is evident from the bowling averages my number one bowler Freddie Trueman comes in first as expected with an average of 21.5 and note that he only played 67 matches to achieve 307 wickets.

    Without Kevin Peterson tomorrow England have it all to do, anyway let’s hope the rain keeps off and that the wicket for the deciding Test of the series at Eden Park, offers more to the bowlers.

  • 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

  • Blackcaps v England 1st ODI at Hamilton

    Posted on February 18, 2013 by Selby


    Blackcaps v England 1st ODI at Hamilton

    England    258 all out

    Blackcaps 259 for 7 wickets

    Autograph Signings will take place through to the 3rd Test at Eden Park, marking the England tour of New Zealand.

    On Sunday at the Seddon Park ground, despite the England top order batsmen, Ian Bell, Jonathon Trott and Joe Root making some useful scores, the Tourists were defeated by 3 wickets. This was their second loss at the Park in seven days.

    The Blackcaps put the England side in to bat and having achieved a solid position of 190 for 3 through 40 overs, England lost 7 all important wickets for just 68 runs in the last ten overs, McClenaghan, Franklin and Mills doing most of the damage. McCallum performed well in the field responsible for the wickets of Bell, Woakes and Stuart Broad.

    The Blackcaps finding themselves on 155 for 5, assisted by Kane Williamson’s 74 runs, hit back when McCallum (90 not out) scored 69 off 61 deliveries, whilst Martin Guptill having returned to the pavilion injured in the sixth over was sufficiently recovered to hit four 4’s and a six securing victory for the Blackcaps with 2 matches left in the series.

    James Anderson (Lancs) rested since the 4th Test at Napur in December, made history with the last ball of his first over by bowling BJ Watling with  an inswinger, it was his 529th International wicket, Ian Botham had held the record of 528 wickets.

    The ball used to bowl James Anderson into the record books will make an interesting item of Cricket Memorabilia
