About Holdingwilley

1976. England vs West Indies at The Oval. England are 81 for 7. And Test Match Special commentary resumes after a break. The redoubtable Brian Johnston has this to relate – “The bowler’s Holding, the batsman’s Willey.”

Welcome to HoldingWilley. Since nothing can equal the pleasure of playing cricket for the country, we thought we’d add something to the pure vicarious pleasure of discussing it whilst watching it with some likeminded people.

We have brought together cricket fans from all around the world, all keen students of the game, to transfer their enthusiasm and knowledge of the game on each other, and on all those choosing to observe (and even participate in) their interactions. It is quite literally like being in a room full of friends of different nationalities, as they debate, vent, pontificate, illuminate, rant, grunt …whatever the cricket brings out of them.

Hopefully, this will become that unique forum where we’ll get perspectives from all around the world. Not from former test cricketers or cricket journalists, but from followers of the game with no agendas and deadlines, which hopefully will bring in a different dimension to cricket discussion.

And the door has been left open for you …Join any discussion you like with your comments. And if you’d like to be a panelist on HoldingWilley, please do get in touch at: editor@holdingwilley.com
