  • Joe Root justifies selection

    Posted on July 21, 2013 by Selby


    What an outstanding performance by Joe Root making his maiden Test century as an England opening bat, leaving the hosts to close day 3 at Lords with  an unreachable 566 run lead, it rather seems to have justified the Nick Compton decision

    Things could have been so different if he had not survived the mix up between keeper Haddin and Michael Clarke on Friday.

    Root and Bell seemed there forever until their 153 run stand ended when Bell misjudged a short ball and was caught by Steve Smith at mid wicket Signed cricket bats are availabe for the Lords Test and containing Roots autograph all the more popular

    It seems today at Lords will just be a formality however Tiger Woods needs to make sure Westwood doesn't move any further ahead at Muirfield (not forgetting Hunter Mahon good odd!!!

    • Friday,

    India are playing well at the moment which means something special from England is needed to win the Champions Trophy.
    Cricket Memorabilia associated with the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy is readily available and at  Cricket Collectables we have signed cricket bats, autographs and tour memorabilia from the series.
    India's performance in fifty over cricket is clearly above the other 7 competing nations, they remain the only unbeaten side in the tournament, endorsing this yesterday at Cardiff in the semi-final with an easy eight-wicket victory over Sri Lanka.
    India easily achieved the modest target of 182 runs with the loss of 2 wickets and still 90 balls to spare against Sri Lanka.Dhawan and Rohit Sharma put on an excellent 77 run stand. Mathews dismissed Rohit Sharma but Dhawan notched up his 2nd fifty to add to his run rate in the competition. Kohli also played well scoring his 23rd one day international half century.
    India are back in the finals for the 3rd time, and as I suggested earlier if England are to win the cup they will need to play their best game, they play well under pressure so this may be what they need.
    A great season for cricket memorabilia
