The Village Cricketer is a little miffed that its September of cricket viewing has been cancelled. Surely the ICC could have changed the location of the tournament so that we could enjoy some cricket on TV during September. Instead, I have to wait until October to get my fix.

Speaking of October, England has named a 15-man squad to play Sir Allen Stanford’s All Stars in November for a chance to win $1million each.

The squad is as follows:

Kevin Pietersen (Hampshire) capt
James Anderson (Lancashire)
Ian Bell (Warwickshire)
Ravi Bopara (Essex)
Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire)
Paul Collingwood (Durham)
Alastair Cook (Essex)
Andrew Flintoff (Lancashire)
Stephen Harmison (Durham)
Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire)
Matt Prior (Sussex)
Owais Shah (Middlesex)
Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire)
Ryan Sidebottom (Nottinghamshire)
Luke Wright (Sussex)

It all kicks off in October, with the big money match on November 1st. Bring it on!
