When England were given a comprehensive shoeing in 2006-07, everyone in England was up in arms that they’d let their bowling coach, Troy Cooley, leave for a post with Australia.

Now that Australia’s fast bowlers have turned into long hop machines set at 80mph, we’ve all forgotten about him, but he’s still there, he’s still working for Australia. Where’s the magic touch gone?

We wrote a bit more on this at The Wisden Cricketer. Not a lot more, but a bit.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. I am currently in a london branch of pizza express with three australians. It is glorious. I feel a match report coming on.

  2. So far I have established that beer is too inexperienced, ponting is past it, katich is flakey and they want to get shaun marsh in.

  3. Ps – an australian just bade me farewell by saying ‘congratulations on retaining the ashes’.

    We’re fucked.

  4. On an unrelated note, when was the last time the top 4 teams played test cricket on the same day ?
