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


As my colleague Paul has posted an excellent preview of the series as a whole, I've picked out a couple of bets for the First Test starting today, being of course the first day-night Test to be played in England. The first and also the last? We'll see. Like many I'm unconvinced that this is going to work, nonetheless it's worth a try. Surely the pink ball is going to help the bowlers and I'm looking at a couple of bets bearing that in mind. First of all I make no apology for going back to the well of No Hundred In The Match. Surprisingly to me the price here is only a tick underneath what it was when I backed it in a couple of the SA tests. You can have 7.5 (13/2) on No Hundred being scored in this match. I'd be shocked if any of the WI bats took this away from us. Cook and Root are always in play for England, but it could prove more difficult for Stokes, Bairstow or Moeen to deny us here as even if one gets in England could well be bowled out before they make it. It's also entirely possible that England will only bat once, or have a low target in the second innings.
