Two games, two man-of-the-match awards, two victories, one hundred, one unbeaten 90, two wickets. The England captaincy is not exactly having a draining effect on Kevin Pietersen so far but that is just the word his predecessor Paul Collingwood, who will return to the side for today's second one-day international against South Africa, used to describe his own time at the helm.
Friday 22 August 2008
Kevin Pietersen has spent the initial 18 days of his reign as England captain on the front foot. Every decision Pietersen has made, whether it be picking a five-man bowling attack for The Oval Test against South Africa or persuading Steve Harmison out of one-day retirement, has been a positive one.
Scotland 156-9, England 10-0 (match abandoned; no result): Bresnan and Patel shine before rain hits Scottish showpiece
Tuesday 19 August 2008
Samit Patel and Tim Bresnan benefited most from England's abandoned inaugural one-day international against Scotland here in Edinburgh yesterday. In reply to Scotland's workmanlike total of 156 for 9 England had reached 10 without loss when heavy rain descended, bringing a premature end to proceedings.
England Lions 184 South Africa 185-6 (SA win by four wkts): Gibbs enjoys share of luck as South Africa cruise to win
Friday 15 August 2008
The South Africans barely broke sweat in this, the first of their warm-up games for the forthcoming one day international series against England which begins at Headingley a week today. Despite a solid 50 by Rob Key, the England Lions captain, and a couple of chunky, but ultimately inadequate contributions with the bat from Luke Wright, Owais Shah and Ravi Bopara, the Lions were unable to set a challenging enough total for the South Africans to chase.

Next to bottom a little over three weeks ago, Sussex, the defending champions, could leap to third place in the First Division table should they win here. Yet they face a trickier task than looked to be on the cards at tea yesterday, when they were probably contemplating a day off.
Thursday 07 August 2008
It requires only a superficial assessment of Sussex's current state to realise that in what remains of the season the form and fitness of Mushtaq Ahmed are likely to be key to their prospects of winning a third Championship in a row.

Test cricket's troubles, brought on largely by the huge success of Twenty20 cricket, continue to be well documented but domestic Twenty20 cricket in England, on the eve of this summer's tournament, has reached a crossroads, too.
Tuesday 10 June 2008
There was a winner in this game – the weather. But with 169 overs lost neither side had a prayer of salvaging something more significant than the collection of bonus points from this dead game.

Given that the ball swings so readily here, you might have thought that no set of slip fielders would be sharper than Nottinghamshire's. Yet after dropping two on Wednesday evening, they shelled another three yesterday and in doing so probably handed the match to Sussex.
Thursday 22 May 2008
The last time Sussex came here it was to clinch the Championship in 2006 on the back of some extraordinary bowling by Mushtaq Ahmed.
