England Cricket Thread

Post by Paddles » Tue Oct 01, 2019 10:17 am

One of the years most eagerly awaited cricket events will occur on October 20.

The Hundred Draft is here. And everyone, bar India is in. Their players are only allowed to play county cricket. That means world #1 t20 batsman Babar Azam should be getting snapped up. Along with fellow star players Farkhar, Shadhab and Imad Wasim. Even Amir and Shinwari should be in the mix. Afghanistan and world best t20 bowler, Rashid Khan will of course get snapped up.

There are squad sizes of 15. And each team will be allocated an England test player. But they will not feature much until the final. Bet they all want Buttler, Archer, Bairstow, Stokes or Root more than Broad, Burns, Anderson or Leach.

Roy and Ali are on the player's list, with Plunkett, Morgan, Hales, Rashid, etc.

Warner, Starc, Smith, KW, Gayle, Rashid are all the mix.

Teams may only sign 3 overseas players. And they must take 1 England contracted player minimum.

So squad sizes are 15, but that is really 14, as the England team will be unavailable so often. And i you pick Ali, and he gets a test recall, suddenly your squad is down to 13. So this will need some very astute selections. I expect as a result, there may be some less than expected second round picks, with the real value of a local player like Mark Wood, or Tom Curran, being higher than one would normally think given these restrictions. That said, Warne believes his first round picks should be ABdV, Dre Russ or Rashid Khan... And its hard to debate that I wouldn't take Dre Russ or ABdV if available neither.

I have to say, I am excited to see how the teams make their draft picks.

London (AFP) - England cricket chiefs have named Chris Silverwood as their new head coach to replace Trevor Bayliss, who stepped down last month at the end of his contract.

The 44-year-old, who has spent the past two years serving as fast bowling coach under Bayliss, will take charge for the tour of New Zealand, which includes a five-match Twenty20 series, starting on November 1, and two Tests.

While former India and South Africa coach Gary Kirsten and Surrey's director of cricket Alec Stewart emerged as contenders to succeed Australian Bayliss, managing director of England men's cricket Ashley Giles described Silverwood as the "standout candidate".

474 players Un-Sold including Rabada, Gayle & Babar Azam in 100 over tournaments of england


Gayle, Malinga and Rabada find no takers in Hundred draft
October 20 2019


Chris Gayle and Lasith Malinga were among several players who found no takers
Rashid Khan was the first pick in the maiden 'The Hundred' draft while Luke Wright was the last pick, with both players going to Trent Rockets who started and ended the event on Sunday (October 20). With only three overseas slots each available for the eight teams, there were several big name players who had no takers, including the likes of Chris Gayle, Lasith Malinga and Kagiso Rabada.


There were seven salary brackets - GBP 125,000, 100,000, 75,000, 60,000, 50,000, 40,000 and 30,000 - that made for the seven rounds of two picks each. With all the teams having signed up two local players before hand, along with one England centrally contracted player apiece, they had to skip that particular price bracket in the draft for the respective selections made before the draft.

D'Arcy Short was Trent Rockets' other pick in the first round while Southern Brave bagged Andre Russell and David Warner as their first picks. London Spirit and Oval Invincibles had already selected Eoin Morgan and Jason Roy as their local picks under the GBP 125,000 bracket and they opted for Glenn Maxwell and Sunil Narine respectively as their second first-round picks.


Manchester Originals opted for Imran Tahir and Dane Vilas in the first round while Welsh Fire chose the Australian duo of Mitchell Marsh and Steve Smith. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Aaron Finch found takers in Northern Superchargers during the first round. Birmingham Phoenix, meanwhile, chose Liam Livingstone as their only first-round choice in the draft, having roped in Moeen Ali beforehand.

Lewis Gregory, Liam Dawson, Sam Billings, Phil Salt, Ravi Bopara and Tom Abell were the England players picked in the GBP 100,000 bracket while Kane Williamson, Mohammad Nabi, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mohammad Amir and Chris Lynn were the overseas selections in the second round. On the other hand, big names like Shakib Al Hasan, Trent Boult, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo missed out.

Babar Azam was the major exclusion during the third round along with several other overseas names while Shadab Khan made it to the Southern Bravo team, who stacked their bowling department with plenty of pace options and batting firepower, with Russell, Warner, Archer and Tymal Mills all part of the lineup. Liam Plunkett and Ryan ten Doeschate, who had a reserve price of GBP 50,000, were both picked by Welsh Fire.

A total of 96 players were selected in the draft while as many as 474 went unsold.

Anderson, Amar Vardi, Wood & Johnny will Train in southafrica before the tour underway


Bairstow, Anderson to head to South Africa for training camp

November 25 2019

Bairstow is currently out of favour in the longest format.

Jonny Bairstow will take part in a training camp in Potchefstroom, South Africa, at the start of December with "the aim of returning to England's Test squad". Bairstow was dropped for the current two Test tour to New Zealand after a disappointing Ashes series with the bat.


Bairstow will train against James Anderson and Mark Wood who will be continuing their rehabilitation from injuries in Potchesfstroom at a specialist pace bowling camp, designed to test the pair's fitness ahead of the Test series against South Africa. Olly Stone, Craig Overton and Sussex's Ollie Robinson will also take part in the camp between December 1 and 14.

All three of Anderson, Wood and Bairstow will hope to be included in the squad for the four Test series in South Africa. Anderson has not played since injuring his calf in the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston while Wood has been out for even longer having had knee surgery after the World Cup final. Both fast-bowlers have recently been in Spain doing some outdoor bowling.


Stone, Overton and Robinson are attending as part of a new approach to the development of future England players. Rather than opt for generic training camps and matches, as has been the case in the first half of previous winters, the ECB's new Performance Director, Mo Bobat, has decided that the pre-Christmas programme will consist of bespoke programmes on specific areas of the game.

The Lions schedule will still include match-play although that will exclusively be confined to the new year this winter. The Lions will tour Australia in January and February with the schedule and tour party set to be announced in the next few weeks.

As part of the ECB's new approach, eight players will also attend a camp in Mumbai between November 26 and December 17 to work on bowling spin and batting against it. Batsmen Will Jacks, James Bracey, Dan Lawrence, Keaton Jennings and Sam Hain will travel to India alongside spinners Dom Bess, Mason Crane and Amar Virdi.

A number of county coaches will also be involved in the camps. The pace bowling camp in Potchefstroom will be led by Durham's Neil Kileen and Lancashire's Glenn Chapple while Jonathan Trott will work with Bairstow.

In Mumbai, Surrey's Vikram Solanki will work with the batsmen and Gloucestershire head coach Richard Dawson will work with the bowlers. Former Sri Lanka international spinner Rangana Herath will also be working with the young spinners for part of the camp.


"The Individualised Programmes are a great opportunity for some of our best young cricketers to focus on specific areas of their game in unfamiliar and challenging conditions around the world," Bobat said.

"While these two camps have overall themes of pace and spin, each player in attendance will have a uniquely tailored training programme. Some of the players involved are in England's immediate plans, while others will be working on areas that will benefit the national team's medium- and long-term needs.

"We're fortunate to be working with a number of high-quality coaches and support staff to help deliver this fresh approach to our programming, which is testament to the strong links we have with the counties."
