Australia v India, first Test, Melbourne, first day

Where's the cauldron?

The MCG on Boxing Day is supposed to be a heaving, roaring giant bowl of Test cricket-loving humanity, no?

Sydney Sixers v Brisbane Heat, Big Bash League, Sydney

Some smashing, some bashing

In the opening game, there was more entertainment in the stands than on the field

Alas, poor Rohit

No hundred for the hard work, and no win for India either, but a good time was had by all

Wellington v Otago, Plunket Shield, Wellington, day two

Burning up at the Basin

Bangladesh v Pakistan, only Twenty20, Mirpur

An all-green non-contest

Bangladesh were no match for a Pakistan side on a hot streak

Cricket in the summer hols

After the crazy 23-wicket day, this home fan enjoyed watching South Africa win, even if it meant just a session's worth of play

India v West Indies, first Test, Delhi

What, no hundredth?

An India fan turns up at the Kotla for the mother of all landmarks but has to be content with a home win instead

Mushy the exorcist

Fifty-eight all out? What's that?

Scrapping their way into the semis

Sri Lanka v Australia, fifth ODI, Colombo

Mmm, Malinga

Yet another hat-trick from the wild-haired one. Plus fireworks from Chamara Silva. Equals happy campers

England v India, fourth Test, The Oval, fourth day

When cricket met religion

Rahul Dravid batted like an angel, but only a miracle could save India

Sri Lanka v Australia, fourth ODI, Colombo

And the band played on

... while the Titanic sank. If only Clarke had won the toss, things would have been so much better for this Lanka fan

The pain of rain

Cricket at Lord's is some experience, even with overzealous stewards, pedantic umps and lots of rain

Surrey v Somerset, Friends Life t20, The Oval

No carnage and no Mexican Wave

Pollard disappointed, but there was a Dilscoop, and sitting at The Oval on a summer's evening is its own reward

Kent v Surrey, Friends Life t20, Beckenham

'This is our summer'

The Railways ditched and the queues were long, but Kent and Surrey's fans enjoyed the cricket and dealt with all the inconveniences with humour

A pop quiz, and a naughty superhero

If you're a Hampshire fan, there's no way you'd miss the Rose Bowl's first Test, would you?

Surrey v Essex, Friends Life t20, The Oval

A case of mistaken identity

Lime-green clothing can confuse one, can't it? And who's more fun - fans of Surrey or Essex?
