  • England stick to formula for final rematch by Christopher Martin-Jenkins

  • When India's elder statesmen triggered a collapse by Elmo Rodrigopolle

    ENGLAND'S impressive attempt to win the Champions Trophy in Sharjah will be seen on British television after all.

  • Arabian nights and untold cricket riches in concrete theatre By Christopher Martin-Jenkins

    CRICKET never ceases to produce unlikely facts, but is it not one of the oddest of all that a stadium created out of barren sand in the desert of the Arabian Gulf should have staged more one-day international matches than any other ground? To be sure, it is.

    MATTHEW FLEMING, the hero of England's seven-wicket defeat of India in the first match of the Sharjah tournament on Thursday, expressed his profound disappointment yesterday that the matches were not being shown on television in Britain, writes Christopher Martin-Jenkins.

    THE FACT that the Sharjah Champions trophy is just another one-day tournament among so many for India and Pakistan should enhance England's prospects of winning the quadrangular contest...

  • England in Pakistan: An imperfect past makes the present tense (2 Dec 1997)

  • PCB names teams to play against England (2 Dec 1997)

    An 18-member England cricket team will arrive at the Lahore Airport on Tuesday at 4:30 pm to begin its tour of Pakistan
