Sussex 277 Notts 46-2: Prior's ton reinforces case for England return

Some say Matt Prior will win back his England place only if he gives up the idea of keeping wicket and concentrates on the batting talent for which he was originally picked, for the 50-over side, in 2004.

Eng Lions 280 & 275-5, New Zealand 273 (Eng Lions lead by 282 runs): Carberry hits century but celebrations cut short

There are much greater challenges ahead for England than the first Test series of the summer, against New Zealand. Without detailed research or the presence of Bangladesh, it is difficult to think of a lesser one.

England Lions 280 v New Zealand: Wright times his assault perfectly to wag Lions' tail

Luke Wright brought cheer to the England selectors for the second time in a week yesterday when he struck a sparkling hundred for the England Lions against New Zealand in Southampton. On Wednesday Wright revealed that he had turned down a lucrative approach to play in the Indian Premier League so that he could focus on playing for England, and he enhanced his chances of achieving that goal considerably by producing the Lions only notable performance of the day.

Sussex 171 & 174-2 MCC 205: Kirby struck as Sussex take control

Steve Kirby had caused Sussex enough problems with the ball on the opening day, but the MCC tail-ender yesterday proved a real nuisance with the bat.

Sussex 171 MCC 130-4: Harris makes instant impact to bowl shaky Sussex lifeline

It was not just the chill which had Sussex followers shivering during the first two sessions of the opening day of the new cricket season. The way an aggressive and energetic MCC attack set about dismantling the reigning County Champions' batting must have filled even the most die-hard of fans with trepidation.

Flintoff has a ball on return to bowling

Andrew Flintoff bowled for the first time in six months here yesterday and took two wickets, for Lancashire, in one over against Sussex in the Pro Arabian Challenge.

England 242-7 New Zealand 213-6 (New Zealand win by 34 runs (D/L) - New Zealand win series 3-1): Struggling England in need of an upgrade

Satisfactory. That is Peter Moores assessment of how England's one-day side have performed during the time he has been coach. Those who have watched England play in New Zealand, where Saturday's four-wicket loss took them to a 3-1 series defeat in a five-match series, may disagree with Moores appraisal but it does make sense to judge the team on what it has achieved since Duncan Fletcher resigned rather than looking back solely on the past two and a half weeks whilst emotions are running high.

New Zealand 213-6 (37 Overs) England 242-7 (50 Overs): New Zealand win the series as England are outclassed

Out thought, out played and overall outclassed. Rain brought a premature and unsatisfactory end to last nights series deciding fifth one-dayer between New Zealand and England but Paul Collingwood’s side could have no complaints about the result of this match or the series.

England 340-6, New Zealand 340-7: England's Wright idea earns thrilling tie

The introduction of Twenty20 cricket has made batsmen realise just how many runs can be scored in a limited-over match, whether its duration be 20, 40 or 50 overs. The recognition is the principal reason England and New Zealand shared 680 runs here yesterday in a thrilling one-day game. Five or six years ago the team batting second would never have dreamt about chasing down 340, yet with six overs of the game remaining New Zealand were coasting to victory.

Moores hits England with 'reality check'

Who would want to be a coach? Peter Moores must have privately asked himself just that question on numerous occasions during the past five days sat in a stand helplessly watching his England cricket team implode in their opening two one-day internationals against New Zealand.

Australia and India agree to abandon 'trust' pact

Australia and India have decided to abandon their agreement of trusting the word of fielders on contentious low catches for the rest of the Test series.

Presidency falling apart at the seams for Bush and his entourage

His foreign policy is in tatters. He has just suffered a sweeping electoral defeat. And now - from Buenos Aires to Hawaii and Vietnam - even the clockwork-like operation to protect and ferry around George Bush and the rest of America's first family seems to be coming apart at the seams.
