  • Umpires, Frank Chester Herbert George Baldwin 1948 Cricket Memorabilia and controversial modern day decisions

    Posted on April 3, 2014 by Selby

    Worst LBW decision ever

    A culmination of circumstance appears to be effecting "match in play" umpiring decisions. The DRS, decision review system which was first introduced in Test Cricket in 2008 India v Sri Lanka, is there for the sole purpose of testing controversial decisions by Umpires and deciding whether the player is out or not

    We currently have a number of items of items of Cricket Memorabilia, signed team sheets and signed cricket bats which have also been signed by the Umpires, Frank Chester Herbert George Baldwin in the 1948 4th test England v Australia at Headingley (AUS won by 7 wickets resulting in a 3-0 series win) a very fine example is a fully signed cricket bat in good condition with legible signatures

    Today bad light and weather decisions are often contradictory as are some fine catches taken low in the infield which are now decided upon by the 3rd umpire. A recent decision giving  Mahela Jayawardene the benefit on his first delivery was seen to be incorrect and proved to be game changing, camera angles in these circumstances can be misleading, yet are regarded as the final word

    The Ladies second semi final T20 England v South Africa takes place at Dhaka on Friday, which will be watched with interest Cricket Collectables hope to add to their Ladies memorabilia with some match signed cricket bats and teamsheets

    Lydia Greenway looks a fair bet at 9/2 to make the most runs!!!

  • T20 Cricket Memorabilia at The Rose Bowl Southampton

    Posted on August 30, 2013 by Selby

    England having won the toss chose to put the Australians in to bat leaving “man of the match” Aaron Finch to ensure the Tourists first international win of the summer, Aaron scored  a tremendous 156 runs off 63 balls including 14 sixes and 11 fours, before being bowled by Jade Dernbach,. Aaron beat the previous international record of 123 runs scored by New Zealand's Brendon McCullum to become the first Australian to score a T20 cricket international century.

    Cricket Memorabilia is always popular at T20 events and somewhat more available owing to the less formal atmosphere of a Test match; this was certainly so at the packed Southampton ground last night where players were more than generous with their offerings. The only downside being England selecting a relatively fresh eleven, better known for County Cricket achievements

    Chasing a target of 248/6 the England opening batsmen threw caution to the wind, with the first four wickets falling for just 34 runs Mitchell Johnson and Joss Hazlewood dismissing the key batsmen, Joe Root stemmed the flow putting on 90 runs off 49 balls not out, the hosts putting up a spirited fight making 209/6, but it wasn’t enough.

    Cricket Collectables look forward to the 2nd and final T20 on Saturday at Durham before the start of the 5 ODI series.
