RL Haynes Retained As Thunder Captain

In some fantastic news for fans of the Sydney Thunder, Rachael Haynes has agreed to terms for another season with the reigning WBBL Champions. She was part of the inaugural Thunder WBBL team which won the WBBL|01 title and was the captain in their WBBL|06 victorious campaign.

She is the Thunder WBBL all time leading run scorer and will be looking to lead from the front again in WBBL|07.

Welcome back RL Haynes!

Good to see her back!

Celebrating the debutants

A hearty congratulations to JR Philippe, WA Agar and BR McDermott who have made their ODI debuts against the West Indies overnight.

Australia proved far to strong for the hosts with MA Starc and JR Hazlewood producing 61 dot balls between them and ripped through the heart of the West Indies top order.

Australia lead the series 1-0 after succumbing to a 4-1 series loss in the T20 series.

Resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction has penned a haiku poem in celebration of the three newest members of the Australian ODI team.

Three players debut

Welcome to the Aussie team

Winners straight away.

JP Inglis Take A Bow

Josh Inglis has been lighting up the Vitality T20 Blast with exceptional returns in the regular season of the competition.

The wicket keeper batsman from WA has been in career best form, plundering attacks to all parts of the ground.

He is one of many high quality wicket keeper batsmen in the domestic ranks at the moment and certainly reminding us all of his talents this English summer.

JP Inglis strikes them well

Take a bow young man.

Tim Ludeman sighted Josh Inglis as a player to watch when we chatted on the Cricket Library Podcast.

1000 Poles For JM Anderson

An absolutely incredible achievement from James Anderson has seen him take career best figures and go past 1000 First Class wickets. Indeed a special day for the man himself and cricket as a whole.

Well done Jimmy Anderson!

To celebrate the achievement, our resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction has penned this stirring haiku poem.
