Before my own blog was launched, My entries appeared only on the Test Match Special blog. Here are some of those entries:

TMS ready for magical Ashes
Whether it was listening to Botham's exploits at the back of the classroom during the summer of 1981, celebrating Gower's glorious run-scoring feats while at scout camp in 1985, hiding my radio under the bedclothes as Gladstone Small took the winning catch in 1987, prematurely singing "Ashes Coming Home" on the outfield at Edgbaston in 1997 or chewing my finger nails at The Oval in 2005, most of my best cricket memories have come during series involving cricket's greatest rivals, England and Australia.

My World Twenty20 predictions
After a highly eventful 12 days at Trent Bridge, the Oval and Lord's the ICC World Twenty20 is reaching its climax over the next few days with the semi-finals and finals in both the men's and women's competition.

The Ashes Years - part 2
Five Live's "The Ashes Years" series continues on Tuesday from 2100 BST, with the emphasis moving from 1981 to England's victories in 1985 and Down Under in 1986/87.

The Ashes Years
During the summer of 1981 I was probably the only nine-year-old in Britain annoyed when Bob Willis bowled England to a miraculous victory at Headingley to level the Ashes series.

World Twenty20 hotting up
It was certainly an eventful group phase of the ICC World Twenty20 with one of the greatest upsets in cricket history as the Netherlands humbled hosts England, plus Australia crashing out of the tournament following defeats by a revitalised West Indies and an impressive Sri Lanka.

All set for the World Twenty20
Yuvraj Singh hitting six sixes in an over, Zimbabwe's shock victory over Australia, the bowl-out between India and Pakistan, Chris Gayle's blistering 117 off 57 balls and Misbah-ul-Haq's dramatic last-over dismissal in the final - just a few of the highlights from the hugely successful inaugural ICC World Twenty20 held two years ago in South Africa.

Tests give way to one-day action
After a successful, if low-key, start to the summer, England's cricketers move onto six weeks of one-day action with the NatWest Series and the ICC World Twenty20.

Aggers' bizarre bra questions
After England's three-day victory at Lord's, the TMS team now moves onto Chester-le-street for Thursday's second Test.
