What is this website?! It’s a blog, about cricket, written by two young cricket fans. We mostly talk about English cricket, County cricket, Leicestershire, Sussex, Stuart Broad’s girly looks, our favourite players. And not only that, but we’ll pour on the sexiest, hottest analytic and satirical butter over those topics to make it that little sweeter. Wizard.
The Leading Edge grew inauspiciously out of the ashes of perhaps the greatest ever student house, and, er, the Ashes. Perhaps the only house to be equipped with Sky Sports, a 40 inch TV and 3 fanatical foaming cricket followers (and two not-so-keeners) whose level of “banter” (shudder) never fell below exceptional standards, even when Ramnaresh Sarwan pillaged 291 on a pitch that even J. P. Fraser got have comfortably got a two-figure score. The dream however was shattered – suddenly we were graduates and separated by a horrific 70 miles of south east British land. With the Ashes fast approaching, and an average of 473 text messages on Ian Bell’s hairstyle flying between us each day, a ‘blog’ seemed like the most appropriate way to carry on the spirit of our student days.
Basically, its a cricket blog. That is, a blog, that often talks about cricket. We love cricket. Who doesn’t?
