Adrian Armstrong sent me a very thoughtful email. “Don’t be too embarrassed, Geoff. It could look a lot worse. The last time anyone forgot a game was happening in Adelaide they left out Wood and Leach.
Hello, cricket buffs. It’s already time for the third game in the T20 installment of this multi-format Ashes series. The first game saw England score very well, then Australia smashed it in reply. Yesterday’s second game was a blow in what is otherwise expected to be a fairly dry week in Canberra. The forecast for today looks good. Or so I thought…
This is not the case for Tayla Vlaeminck. Australia’s fastest woman has missed a lot of cricket from 2020 with a stress fracture in her foot. Now, after a few matches, it’s back. Terrible news for her, with another missed World Cup ahead.
England need to find something in his absence today or they will see a 5-1 aggregate and a run that is already slipping away.
