England's tour nears a happy ending  February-20 (Scyld Berry) England's four-month tour could have a happy ending. Today they could win their four-match one-day series against Zimbabwe, though there is no guarantee as they are only 2-0 up; and either Gavin Hamilton or Ashley Giles will get a game in the third of the internationals, or even both of the forgotten men of this tour.

England learn the hard way  February-15 (Martin Johnson) It was pouring with rain again as England flew out of Johannesburg yesterday for their end-of-term four-match slogfest in Zimbabwe, and while drier weather was there to greet them in Bulawayo, they brought with them a certain residual wetness behind the ears.

Caddick finds his feet under new regime  January-26 (Martin Johnson) Andrew Caddick has been one of the success stories of this England tour, but when he started talking about himself yesterday as finally becoming "part of the furniture" you began to worry for him. England's selectors have such a tradition of loading their furniture into a removal van, it's a wonder they're not sponsored by Pickfords.

The best of enemies  January-23 (Michael Atherton) It is unlikely that I will face Allan Donald in the Test arena again.

Even so, I think none of the England players, and especially the senior ones, will be significantly cheered up by the fact that we narrowed the margin of defeat with the win in the final Test at Centurion.

Australians hail contrived Test result in South Africa  SYDNEY, Jan 20 (AFP) - Former Australian captain Mark Taylor on Thursday led an appreciation of the bold moves by South Africa and England to contrive a result in the rain-hit Centurion Park Test.

Final flourish fails to hide lingering flaws  January-20 (Michael Henderson) It may not have been an authentic, hard-fought victory, achieved by taking 20 wickets, but England can at least say they finished the Test series as winners. All the talk yesterday was of the double forfeiture of innings that allowed the rain-affected match in Centurion to reach a positive conclusion, and not a voice denied that most of the credit for that went to Hansie Cronje.

Woolmer backs Cronje the Bold as ICC sniff at Test result  January-19 (Trevor Chesterfield) Centurion - As fond as the International Cricket Council are of peddling the myth that they believe in the modern image of the game, Hansie Cronje's decision to resurrect a dying Test with the support of Nasser Hussain has not gone down well at HQ.

Play abandoned in South Africa v England Test  CENTURION, South Africa, Jan 16 (AFP) - Play was abandoned for a second successive day without a ball being bowled on the third day of the fifth and final cricket Test between South Africa and England at Centurion Park Sunday.

No play before lunch in South Africa v England Test  CENTURION, South Africa, Jan 16 (AFP) - There was no play before lunch on the third day of the fifth and final Test between South Africa and England at Centurion Park Sunday.
