Re: English Cricket

I assume you are using the term 'cricket fans' very loosely there Den.

Re: English Cricket

Surely those organising this tournament should have planned for this and had a reserve day.

We signed up to those playing conditions, so can't really complain. All about time and money these days.

Re: English Cricket

England's two-Test series in Sri Lanka has been cancelled as a precautionary measure against the spread of coronavirus.

Re: English Cricket

Former first class cricketer and England captain Tony Lewis has sadly passed away . Of course he eventually became better known for other cricketing reasons.

---------- Post added at 17:59 ---------- Previous post was at 17:52 ----------

The BBC article says he was born in Bolton, wrong he was a proud Welshman born and bred.

l remember him more as the figurehead of the BBC's cricket coverage but he came across as a lovely man.

Re: English Cricket

It was many years after it was first introduced that I found out he was the Lewis of Duckworth-Lewis fame.

Actually it isn’t true, an untruth I believed for years until very recently.

Actually Lewis of Duckworth/Lewis also died recently which will add to the confusion. Even his Wikipedia has got confused with 2 death dates.
Quote:
. Anthony John Lewis MBE (25 February 1942 – 15 March 2020)[1] was a mathematician who, along with Frank Duckworth, developed the Duckworth–Lewis method of resetting targets in interrupted limited-overs cricket matches.[2][3] ....
Lewis was born in Bolton, Lancashire. He attended Kirkham Grammar School and graduated from Sheffield University with a degree in Mathematics and Statistics.[4] In January 2008, he retired as a lecturer in Quantitative Research Methods from Oxford Brookes University. He was formerly a lecturer at the University of the West of England where the Duckworth–Lewis method originated from an undergraduate final-year project. He was also a former chairman of the Western Operational Research Discussion Society[citation needed] and was a keynote speaker at the Second IMA International Conference on Mathematics in Sport in 2009.[4]

Lewis was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2010 Birthday Honours.[5]

Lewis died on 1 April 2020, aged 78

Re: English Cricket

I even remember Tony Lewis as a test player, and I have got the two mixed up as well, Welsh Tony is still alive and kicking at the age of 81.
