Today in Cricket history: 1986 The day Mike Gatting's nose went west. In the first one-day international against West Indies at Sabina Park, Gatting, sporting a helmet with no visor, wore a short one from Malcolm Marshall right on the bridge of the nose. To add insult to injury, the ball trickled onto the stumps and bowled him. Marshall later found a piece of bone embedded in the ball. It led to a famous exchange at Heathrow Airport, where a battered and bruised Gatting was asked by a journalist "where exactly on the nose" the ball had hit him. As for the match, England were never in it once Tim Robinson and David Gower went without scoring, and West Indies eased home by six wickets with 13 balls to spare. 1969 For such a magnificent player, Garry Sobers the captain made some duff decisions. He was the man who declared when England won by seven wickets in Trinidad in 1967-68, and on this day his decision to put Australia in backfired with a thumping 382-run defeat. This after the Aussies smashed 619 in th ...

David Gower. Retire now. For all the cricket fans in GB who's Xmas has been ruined by the ineptitudes of the team, remember this! We all had to prepare for work whilst watching the folly of the first 3 tests. Don't spoil what's left of it by pandering to the stiff upper lip brigade (apologies to my friends on LW 198) by talking pish when there's a game on, attended by up to 90k people. Having said that, the chat is bad, but its not Mark Nicholas bad.
*** David Gower and Shane Warne have just spent 15 minutes talking about wrapping bananas for Christmas!?
"Dis no ladies' game, man." A Tribute to Great Fast Bowler Sylvester Clarke Viv Richards claimed Clarke was the only bowler he did not feel comfortable batting against, David Gower stated that Clarke was by far the fastest man he ever faced, and in the mid-1980s Garry Sobers wrote that Clarke was "the quickest and most hostile fast bowler now playing in world cricket" Clarke was not shy of delivering balls patently designed to scare opposing batsmen and make them look foolish, and was regularly capable of a perfect bouncer, which having pitched then cut away sharply to follow the path of a batsman's head as he swayed away from it. Having duly terrified the batsman, Clarke would often follow this up with a wicket-taking high speed yorker, which the shaken up batsman was in no condition to defend. Though an affable and laconic personality off the pitch, Clarke had a quick temper on the field and regarded the battle between batsman and bowler as a personal trial of strength and character. (He then oured *** ...

Mohammad Azharuddin Mohammad Azharuddin About this sound pronunciation (help·info) (born 8 February 1963) is an Indian politician and former cricketer. He was an accomplished batsman and captained the Indian cricket team for much of the 1990s, until being banned[2] for his involvement in a match-fixing scandal.[3] The lifetime ban for his alleged match fixing was later found illegal by Andhra Pradesh High Court. A member of the Indian National Congress, Azharuddin won from the Moradabad constituency of Uttar Pradesh to the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Parliament of India. In his prime, he had a graceful, fluid batting style, comparable to that of his English contemporary, David Gower and Australian batsman Greg Chappell. The wrist flick was his most characteristic shot and he fared best against spinners. The grace and fluidity of his wrist once prompted John Woodcock, a noted cricket writer, to say, "It's no use asking an Englishman to bat like Mohammad Azharuddin. For, it would be like expecting a ...
Day 1: They thought Australia was 0-1 in Ashes. Day 2: They thought England will post a high score. Day 2: CricInfo said Clarke has a technical flaw and he is a failure. They [Ian Chapell, David Gower, Ian Botham, Nassir Hussain, Mike Atherton and Shane Warne] were wrong. Day 3: We think Australia has enough on board. Wait and watch. It ain't really over. All experts can take a walk. I would like to enjoy the contest. So, I muted the commentary. It is bliss.

David Gower backs 'business-like' England to win first Brisbane Test in 'quarter of century' Former England captain David Gower has said that Alastair Cook's 'business-like' England team can dish out Australia's first Brisbane Test defeat in a quarter of a century next week. Australia have not lost in the Queensland capital since November 1988 when they were humbled by the all-conquering West Indies, which came a couple of years after Mike Gatting's team of 1986-87 began their series victory in sensational style. According to the Mirror, Gower backed England to win in the first Test at Brisbane as he believes that the team is well-organised and seems to have everything 'clicking into place', adding that England has become a strong side under Cook and they how to win Test matches. Gower further said that a team could fall behind after the first morning during a Test match at the Gabba as it is a hostile venue, adding that it is hard to recover on the Brisbane pitch if the opposition is 100 for no wicket or ...
