Cricket Captain 2019: Out Soon!

Cricket Captain 2019 will be released on May 30th to coincide with the ODI Cricket World Cup!

With Cricket 19 released on console just two days earlier, it’ll be a busy gaming time for cricket fans.

We’ve got to get out of the house and look after our families sometimes though, so I’ll be giving Cricket Captain 2019 a miss, for now at least.

If you buy it then good luck and enjoy!

Malan Madness!

Don’t worry Dawid. If I get my hands on Cricket Captain 2019 for the Mac or dig out my PS4 and buy Cricket 19, I’ll provide you with another England cap!

It’s safe to say that England’s T20I series in the West Indies hasn’t quite been what DM was hoping for…

On another positive Dawid, with first team England appearances err, appearing unlikely, I might find a place for you in my Telegraph Fantasy Cricket Team. Clouds and silver linings and all that!

Telegraph Fantasy Cricket CC/ODC 2019: How to Select a Team

As with Cricket Captain, 2019 is upon us, so if we want to succeed at TFC, then we already need to get our thinking caps on! Again, as with Cricket Captain, I’ve put forward my tactics before but feel that I can now expand on those in greater depth.

I’ll likely do both the above articles as audiocasts. My short-lived YouTube experiment is probably on hiatus. I just don’t have the space to be able to keep it clean and make it look sleek. I’ve got some really good ideas but with a second child having just arrived in a very small house, the audiocasts are a bit more feasible than recording videos.

Shehan Karunatilaka: Chinaman Book Review

I’m about fifty pages into this and am enjoying it so far. There’s such a lack of quality cricket fiction out there but hopefully this has bucked the trend.

Please take at look at my previous book reviews here…
