did the points deduction arise from a match where he was captain? Might explain it
Also says we're looking for an experienced captain for next season too. What does that mean in regards to Pujara?
The appeal turned down two balls prior looked a far better shout.104/5. That last one was a very average decision from the umpire
Surely after injuring himself in the IPL this year Archer won't risk it again.Excellent win to round off the season. A young team on the up. In contrast Glous are an older team on the way down, who threw away a good chance to get a first CC win of the season.
New contract for Robinson confirmed today too. Considering England pay him a yearly salary on a central contract it’s great to get this sorted. In theory, he and Archer will feature in CC cricket next season as the schedule has a huge gap between the Indian series and July’s West Indies series. Season starts in early April and I believe there’s a 7 game block before any England commitments.
IPL is between March and May, but I highly doubt Robinson will be involved. Archer might, fitness permitting. Surely it’s in England’s best interest to get both playing CC matches before the July series though?
