Suave's Republique Cricket

Now that is a proper tour!

Thanks to a recent agreement between the ICC, South Africa and The England, tours between the two countries will now be played over five tests.

The schedule for The England’s winter tour to South Africa, is now 2 T20i’s, 4 ODI’s and five tests.   That my friends is a proper cricket tour.  If you’re listening STUPID INDIAN ADMINISTRACATS, no-one wants to play two tests and eleventy ODI’s.

Hugh Morris, England Cricket Managing Director, said: “We are grateful to colleagues and friends in South Africa who have worked with us to provide what we believe is an exciting and well balanced tour. It makes good sense to start with the ODIs given the schedule of cricket that we have in September, October and November 2009.

“The four Test matches are scheduled for iconic grounds of South Africa and I am sure that thousands of England supporters will be looking forward to spending their Christmas and New Year holidays following the team.”

We will have a lovely boxing day test too!  Top bombing.  Suave is now going to do all he can to be at that test.

If any South Africans out there would like to put up the Suavest Cricket Blogger in the world, then leave a comment.


Seems myself and an Indian cricket website can’t fucking read.

It’s four tests, five ODI’s, as Patrick Kidd rightly points out here..

Well that’s pissed on my parade, hasn’t it..

Cunts, the lot of em.

@suavey – well BCCI did add an extra test on the NZ tour. nothing like beating up on minnows! ; )

but 5 tests should only be reserved for marquee match ups. sorry, but saffers vs poms doesn’t qualify. even india v aust is only 4 tests. 3 is plenty, 2 vs the new minnows (nz, lanka, windies), 1 vs bangladesh, 0 vs pakistan*.

But it is. It’s the second oldest cricket match up behind the ashes. It’s marquee cricket alright.

Too right. You also have to consider who you want to be playing. England want to play the best. All those 5 and 6 test series against the Windies in the 80s/early90s.

NB – just been reminded of Goochie`s 154 at Headingley in 91, vs Marshall, Ambrose, Patterson and Walsh. That were grand.

Four tests is still pretty good – it’s more or less the same as we gave them and as bonus it’s one less game for The England to lose.

Dave does have a point.
