The ‘American Premier League’ is said to be a six team event, with Premium Pakistan, Premium Indians, Premium West Indies, Premium World and Premium America teams in the pipe line.

England must act quickly over Prior performances

England slumped to a 20 run loss in the second ODI to West Indies, with Shivnarine Chanderpaul making a superb 112 not out. However, it could have been a completely different situation if Prior had not dropped Chanderpaul on 27. A mistake that was punished with some style from the West Indian. That drop followed a series of poor performances behind the stumps from the Sussex keeper and surely now England must act. There is little room to include Prior as just a batsman, so his keeping may well justhave lost him a place in the side. (more…)

On the evidence of the twenty20 defeat early this week, he will have his work cut out. Flower already has the backing of senior players within the dressing room, but still has some work to do to convince his superiors that he is right for the job. (more…)

Aussie influx could damage Ashes chance

Stuart Clarke is the latest and most high profile Australian international to join a County team this season. Kent this week announced that they are to sign Aussie Pace-man Stuart Clarke as their overseas signing for the first part of the year.

England lacking genuine twenty 20 big hitters

England’s defeat in the twenty20 match to the West Indies raised more doubts about the capability of England’s batsmen in the shortest format. Shock Debutant Steve Davies top scored with 27 while the rest fell in tame fashion, including 3 run outs. This defeat is a worrying sign for England ahead of the summer’s twenty20 World cup and changes need to be implemented to this side if it is to taste glory. (more…)
