Jayden Seales: Why The Teenager Is The Most Exciting West Indies Fast Bowling Talent Since Ambrose And Walsh

Jayden Seales announced himself on the world stage in Jamaica, becoming the youngest West Indies bowler to take a Test match five-for in a memorable one-wicket victory over Pakistan. Seales, who first caught global attention at the 2020 Under-19 World Cup, is a player worth keeping an eye on, writes Mike Vince.

“This kid is ready to be in and around the senior set up right now,” said Ian Bishop in 2020, months after Seales’ 18th birthday.

Yasir Shah: What's Going Wrong With Pakistan's Record Breaking Leggie?

Yasir Shah broke onto the Test scene in 2014 as an exciting leg-spinner who quickly set his stall out as one of the world’s best. Shah is the owner of some fantastic records, he is the fastest bowler to reach 200 Test wickets, reaching the landmark in just 33 matches.

Shah displayed an ability to rip the best teams apart, taking ten wickets in a Pakistan victory at Lord’s in 2016. Unfortunately, Shah also holds some unwanted records, and his career has not been as plane sailing as it once was.

England's mis-treatment of Moeen Ali is one of cricket's biggest disappointments

On Tuesday morning Moeen Ali was dismissed for an entertaining 43, India wrapping up a 317 run win and tying the series at 1-1.

After the Test it was announced that Ali would be departing the touring squad to return home for the remainder of the test series.

Skipper Joe Root announced that the all-rounder ‘has chosen to go’. By doing so beginning a series of rather unfortunate events surrounding the reporting and framing of such a ‘decision’.

It has been widely reported that England are takin

How do England fix this?

… Is the question on everyone’s lips approximately every time the England men’s Test side gets hammered abroad, but this time it feels different. Worse.

The main accusation levelled at the ECB is that they prioritise the white ball game and this is why the test side is so forlorn. There is some truth to this, given the amount of players who are expected to perform in both sides, and the preference given to the shorter forms in the domestic calendar.

This is all reductive however, and ignores t

The Trent-based women’s Ashes squad members | CBJTarget

After the men’s Ashes debacle, England fans’ attention turns to the Women’s Ashes and the hope of a change of fortune. Talent from across the English shires will be vying for spots in the playing eleven, with a notable Trent Rockets contingent.

Brunt is a bona-fide legend of English cricket, Australian players will be bored of facing her by now, having made her England debut all the way back in 2004. With 301 wickets across formats for her country, Brunt remains England’s spearhead with the bal

Australia Day: Who are Nottinghamshire’s five greatest Australian men? | CBJTarget

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club are a storied English domestic side with plenty of history, therefore it follows that they would have some top Australian talent over the years.

Brother of Michael, David Hussey goes down as a legend of Nottinghamshire cricket, and another potential great of the game who lost out on a Test career because of the strength of the Australian side at the time. There is a generation of Australian domestic greats who did not make a significant number of internationa

Women’s FA Cup: City too strong for spirited Forest | CBJTarget

Nottingham Forest came up against a vastly superior Manchester City side in their Women’s FA Cup fourth round tie, losing 8-0 at the City Ground.

3,994 were in attendance in the Brian Clough stand to see Forest face off against some of Europe’s finest.

With City putting out a strong side, Forest knew they would be in for a long afternoon when some mazy work from Lauren Hemp led to a cut back which was swept home by Caroline Weir inside two minutes.

The Reds will have hoped to keep the differe

NTU basketball: Free scoring Trent find groove late to beat Southwark Pride

City of London Academy’s Southwark Pride young guns ran Nottingham Trent University close from the start, but experience told in the end.

The first period began in frenetic fashion with both teams inefficient from the jump.

It did not take long for the quality of both teams to shine through however with Southwark Pride drawing first blood and NTU taking a while to reply.

Once into their stride the technical ability of NTU showed with point guard Brahe Ashton controlling the tempo early and Is

The subtle genius of David Silva

As Craig Pawson blew his whistle to bring Manchester City’s thumping of Norwich to an end, it not only brought the curtain down on this campaign but also David Silva’s Premier League career.

What a career it was. City fans will remember him for a long time as the beating heart of a destructive attacking team which brought home a first league title since 1968. The vision to see and most importantly play an eye-of-the-needle pass, set him apart from most of his peers in the Premier League and ind
