A couple of weeks ago, I entered a ballot for tickets to the Ashes Test Match at Edgbaston and have just received an email notifying me that I'm a winner and will be going to Day 4 of the match on Monday, 19th June 2023.

I'm absolutely chuffed!

Phil Simmons has resigned from his job as head coach of the West Indies cricket team. It comes after the regional side had an embarrassing group stage exit from the ICC Twenty20 World Cup.

They really were awful in the three games they played and lost

India v Pakistan was incredible, gutted for Pakistan at the end. A bit of Kohli magic, some poor bowling and a lot of luck.

It’s a shame the tournament is all in the morning hours. Hopefully wake up to find us well ahead against Ireland tomorrow.

So about that...

Such a shame we've had a couple of games be rain affected. It's something you'd expect in England, but not in Aus, although it's still their spring over there.

Weird tactics didn't help. Why did we go so slow, knowing rain was forecast? Out played with bat and ball, even with Moeen going at 12 an over I'm not convinced we would have won anyway. Need a response now and personally I'd go Salt over Malan.

Malan has been terrible so far, strike rate of about 75.

Frustrating as Moeen would have won it for us still today had the rain not intervened

From a neutral perspective, gutting not to see an India v Pakistan world cup final, but it's always great to beat India - not least due to their slightly over bearing domestic fans. Sensational win - bring on Pakistan this weekend.

Indian cricket social media taking the semi final loss as maturely as expected I see  ;D

At the end of the day, twenty twenty cricket is a lottery, anyone can win on their day.

Wasn't sure what to make of Stokes innings - I'm still not even now. Anchored the chase at a point it needed slow and steady but then took an age to get going in partnership with Brook. Would he and Ali have managed the boundaries they did had it not been for Shaheen's injury? Regardless though, he is always there at the key moments in our modern cricketing history, one of our greatest ever pressure players.

World champions in ODI and Twenty Twenty at the same time - the greatest white ball side in history?
