Default Summer of Cricket 2021

With the county championship starting tomorrow it seems the right time to start a new thread.

Here's Durham warming up yesterday.


Another IPL is also about to begin.

The 2021 T20 World Cup (covid permitting) will be in India in October.

This year sees The Hundred making its debut. Seemingly unwanted by cricket lovers but loved by the money men.

Test series this year against NZ (2 Tests) and India (5 Tests). A bit of revenge here I think. Also a bunch of ODI's and T20's involving Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

It's going to be good if we can actually watch cricket at the ground this year.

Good nut.
Reminiscent of a particular delivery, granted he hasn't had the task of spinning it around Gatting though

Meanwhile Mohammad Abbas for Hampshire took 6-11 including a hattrick as Middlesex were bundled out for 79.

I think it is great that we now have cameras brodcasting the county game properly. The numbers are pretty good and it allows showcasing of brilliance that in the past only was reflected in stats and reports by those lucky to be in the ground.

Always amused me that the Sobers six 6s in an over just happened to be filmed by the BBC in an act of almost pure random chance.

Last over of the innings with Jadeja on strike for Chennai vs Bangalore in the IPL went for 37: 6, 6, 7 (6+No Ball), 6, 2, 6, 4.

Went on to pick up three wickets in Bangalore's innings.

Good day's work.
