    Sibley's season stats are absolutely ridiculous

    The next best full season lads are averaging a whole 16 runs less :eeek

    Just home absolutely shocking a disgrace to the White Rose. Serious changes need to be made. Off to Edgbaston for 4 days next week I must be bloody mad.

    Proper intense game. I'm between jobs at the minute so have a lot of time on my hands. Test matches are proper batting and I bat just like England - lots of pretty 20s and 30s and miss a straight one for LBW or bowled.

    Sibley now looks a certainty for a winter tour spot but I’d also like to see Sam Hain get a chance. He promised much as a teenager and played for the Aussie U19’s but he chose England a few years back and I think he has the application for test cricket..

    Worst thing for me is there’s a glitch on 360 where if you simulate the balls you don’t face when batting it sometimes freezes. Got to 89 off 190 odd balls and it did that once and I was fuming :laugh:

    Love these old photos. Children play street cricket in Alpha Grove, Millwall in London in the late 30’s. In the background behind the dock fence is The West India Docks. Most captions refer to this being in the 50’s but the houses on the right were almost all destroyed in the Blitz in 1941.

    Sibley scored 109 today taking his season average to 69.68 and his career FC average to 41.45.

    Surely he has to be on the plane now?

    If he doesn’t get picked this time he may have to move to Yorkshire or Surrey

    When he left Yorkshire no one missed him, personally think he’s finished & will play occasionally for Surrey ( between injuries)

    3 trophies down, 1 to go!

    4 days away from the absolute perfect season from my personal point of view! Huge game to finish at Taunton.
