When we first started writing about cricket, we posted regular articles on World Cricket Watch (we recommend checking out the new WCW One Hand, One Bounce weekly podcast by the way) and Pongo Cricket. This included our regular weekly column entitled 'The Reverse Sweep' (hence the name of our blog, which we created a few months later). The name came from the fact that we aimed to take an alternative and irreverent take on the big stories in cricket. Hopefully, we've achieved that in a small way.
Anyway, whilst we've continued to post the column on World Cricket Watch (read past issues of The Reverse Sweep here), we haven't posted it on Pongo. That wasn't a deliberate move, but in the main due to the trials and tribulations involved in becoming a father for the second time. We also saw that the number of people posting blogs on Pongo had dried up.
But this week, we've decided to redress the issue and have posted the latest column on Pongo as well as World Cricket Watch (once David uploads it to the site!).
This week's column features a preview of the England-Pakistan test series, which kicks off tomorrow at Trent Bridge. We also take a look at the mounting problems facing Australia ahead of the Ashes, suggest the teams that should be involved in the next MCC Spirit of Cricket Series, take a potshot at the run laden Colombo SSC pitch and ask what has happened to India's fast bowlers.
If that sounds up your street, head over to Pongo and/or World Cricket Watch and give it a read.
