sometimes when the batsman is angry he slide-tackles the ball towards the cowering wicketkeeper

Anyone else watching Trinidad steamroller the rest of the Caribbean in the CPL recently?

Pravin Tambe just sprinted to take a diving catch like he was thirty years younger.

Semi-final win over Jamaica wrapped up with five overs to spare. Narine, Hosein and Bravo all with an economy rate of four or under. Eleven wins out of eleven.

Of course, they’ll lose the final now but TKR have been superb.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 8 September 2020 16:59 (seven months ago) link

Rakheem Cornwall with a diving catch to finish off Guyana for 55 all out.

TKR vs Zouks is going to be great.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 8 September 2020 22:45 (seven months ago) link

Cornwall went early but Fletcher and Deyal are murdering the TKR bowlers ;_;

74-1 off eight overs.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 10 September 2020 14:44 (seven months ago) link

Zouks are the team I'm supporting (partly for Cornwall but also as I think they were the bunch that hired Jarrod Kimber as a selector) so not displeased by this

imago, Thursday, 10 September 2020 14:53 (seven months ago) link

Zouks all out for 154, which could be worse for TKR, i guess. Given how they breezed through Guyana, i'd still fancy St Lucia.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 10 September 2020 15:48 (seven months ago) link

What are these insane bowling choices for the Zouks mind you? Spin is not travelling at all so let's bowl loads of pace?

imago, Thursday, 10 September 2020 16:58 (seven months ago) link

Bringing Williams back on was the sort of insanely stupid bowling change not even a child would consider

imago, Thursday, 10 September 2020 17:05 (seven months ago) link

Until Zahir’s over I still thought the Zouks would do it. Kuggeleijn going for 16 in his last over was unexpected.

It was a terrific performance by TKR, after the first ten Zouks overs. Simmons and Bravo running through the Zouks’ dances as they hit six after six was rubbing it in a bit.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 10 September 2020 17:42 (seven months ago) link

Jofra Archer has just hit four consecutive sixes off Ngidi in the IPL and there are still four balls in the over.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 15:49 (seven months ago) link

Could have easily been a 40-run over. Which has happened to me before. I know.

Smith and Samson are chasing 224 in Sharjah so drivers on the Al Wasit Highway watch out.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Sunday, 27 September 2020 16:20 (seven months ago) link

Pooran with possibly the best piece of fielding I’ve ever seen. Dived over the rope to catch the ball and threw it back underarm to save a six before he landed.

KKR needed 92 from 30 balls. They now need 42 off 16. Incredible match.

aw was enjoying Kishan, perhaps the biggest breakout star of the tournament. have been hoping for this from him for a while. v unlucky dismissal today, how often does a wide yorker end up bottom-edged onto the stumps

I wouldn't write them off today if Kohli and Padikkal show up. Under different circumstances you'd have expected Ali and Zampa to have featured more. I like Siraj and Chahal but the bowling has been pretty weak all tournament.

five months pass...

Rajasthan vs Punjab was a blast.

Samson had 119 off 61, with RR needing five off the last two balls, turned down a single, which would have meant Morris could win the game with a four, kept strike and smashed the ball to the fielder at deep.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Monday, 12 April 2021 18:14 (three weeks ago) link
