Jimmy Jimmy. John Lennon or Van Morrison?
Tony Bishop 14th August 2020
Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound. Nobody told me there'd be days like these. Strange days Indeed. Nobody told me: John Lennon. Nobody told me there'd be days like these. We all have bad days. You're not feeling quite right and you don't know why. Your tea is cold, your egg tastes off and your partner's shouting at you and you have no idea why. Things go from bad to worse and the harder you try, the worse they become and the grumpier you get.

Perfect picks and silly selections: how the 2020 IPL franchises could get It right, or get it very, very wrong
Nakul Pande 21st December 2019
Having exhaustively live tweeted the IPL auction, Nakul now gives you his opinions of the outcome of those buys. Mumbai Indians – winners of the 2019 edition of the IPL. The horse-trading, gavel-wielding and paddle-waggling is done. The fast and furious IPL auction, which Guerilla Cricket live-tweeted from start to finish, is done, and the eight franchises have their squads in place. But who they got is only part of the story – the question now is what they do with them. As we've seen throughout the history of cricket, selectors and captains don't always get it right, and in a tournament with such a curious mix of hard-edged analytics, overly intrusive marketing and emotions worn on sleeves as the IPL, there are plenty of ways for franchises to get it wrong.
Words vs actions – why cricket in Australia still has a long way to go.
Messy Jez Tells us the view from a baking Australia and the effects of increasing temperatures on our beloved summer sport. It's only getting hotter the world over, what now for cricket?. Welcome to Summer in Perth. It's Summer here in Perth. It gets hot – it always has, and there is no doubt that it's getting hotter, and will continue to do so.

It is to be played at the new Burswood Stadium, which has replaced the much-loved, but woefully inadequate, WACA ground as the home of major cricket matches in Perth.
From conflict to cricket: a story of Kent Cricket Club, Sierra Leone
Annie Chave 7th December 2019
Annie Chave gives the low down on the inspiring rise of cricket in Sierra Leone. Kent Cricket Club. With our country currently engaged in one of the most divisive and unnecessary political battles in its history and our cricket fan-base similarly divided over ways to progress the game, it feels like an appropriate time to step away from our self-imposed turmoil and look at a wonderful story developing about a cricket club in a country that has been through some of the most horrific hardships humanity can endure.

Nakul Pande 22nd March 2019
The tournament may have been shunted forward to accommodate the World Cup, and the schedule may have been delayed by the mind-boggling security and logistical operation of the Indian general election, but don't let anyone tell you that this is any sort of IPL Lite.

Here's our exhaustive handbook on the 12th edition of this rolling cavalcade of fours, sixes, wickets and thoroughly underwhelmed cheerleaders.
Exclusive: Pakistani doctors' diagnosis - Arthur has to go, and we'll pay for sacking
Hendo 26th September 2018
Cash and harry: Dr Ansari's consortium want Arthur replaced by a more synergetic coaching team. A group of leading Pakistani physicians have offered to pay off the final year of Mickey Arthur's contract as they urge the country's board to seek a new start after the team's disastrous Asia Cup campaign.

Furthermore they accuse the South African of sidelining Sarfraz Ahmed over selection and key decisions, arguing that he leaves the captain to burden the disappointment of a nation's failure.
