Guerilla Cricket: live cricket commentary

It's ball-by-ball like you've never heard before; it's ball-by-ball with your mates; it's ball-by-ball covering all England international matches and much more besides; it's high-brow, it's low-brow, it's laughter, it's song (just wait till you hear our jingles) all in the company of a knowledgeable collective of comedians, journalists, musicians, classicists, an MCC committee member, and a woman with a Master's in meerkat behaviour (they're bastards apparently). And YOU, contributing via twitter on the issues at hand from one of the 193 countries who've already learnt of the Guerilla legend.

The Guerilla Guide to Filthy Lucre


It's the third week of September and somehow we still have to fit in 5 ODIs against the West will be interesting to see what the English weather has to say about that. For the moment I'm going to stick to the first ODI and look for a couple of bets there. It's not clear whether Jason Roy or Jonny Bairstow will be opening up for England tomorrow, but with the former struggling for form and the latter new to the role, there could be an opportunity to back the tourists in the first 15 overs. Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis could make a mockery of this if they take off, as they did in the recent T20 International, and the longer format could allow Gayle in particular to settle in for 20 minutes before pressing the launch button. They could just as easily perish early, that's why it's called gambling, but I favour a punt on the West Indies to make the Highest 1st 15 Overs Score at 2.2 (6/5 in old money).
