I'm not the suppository of all knowledge.

I think your only warming up there JA! 😊

Must be a new use of stunning I haven’t come across before.

He was invited to come on the tour by Langer.

Apparently he has just been awarded the “Spirit Of Cricket” award by the ICC! 😂

Virat Kohli cannot believe it after umpire turns down LBW shout


No, it's not time for four-day Tests

“Robert Craddock thinks” There’s three words I’d never thought I’d see together.

Just jokes mate, I appreciate your contributions.

Peter, you need to find another hobby mate! 😊

The Renshaw catch and the laws of cricket

With the rise of white ball cricket we’ve seen a real drop off in batsmen who can hang tough in challenging conditions. I guess we’ll see where it leads. I agree DJ, low totals aren’t always a good indicator.

Newlands Test the tonic after flat Australian summer

That’s incorrect Pierro, this season Swepson has 12 wickets at 26.58 as opposed to SOK’s 14 at 18.42 both from 4 games.

Langer says Test side likely to stay unchanged for June series against Bangladesh

Bowled……….Thomas! A very good opinion piece. I’m an unapologetic fan of Lyon and think he is the soul of the team. I would still like to find out why he wasn’t made captain after sandpapergate. No disrespect implied to Paine but who had the more test experience and was guaranteed a place every time a side was picked. Will probably never know. A terrific player.

Nathan Lyon’s greatness should be more appreciated

Yep, against NSW at the SCG match figures of 39 overs 2/107 bowling in the 2nd and 4th innings doesn’t scream pick me. His batsmen didn’t give him much to bowl at in the 4th innings though. SOK took 4/71 off 32.5 overs for the match. He’ll get a go somewhere, Agar performed reasonably well in Bangladesh last time 7 wickets at 23.1 from 2 games.

Langer says Test side likely to stay unchanged for June series against Bangladesh

In the current series Buttler is averaging 21.5 with the bat, and Philander 35.3. 😂
And de Kock (Buttler’s opposite number) is on 49.75. 👍

'F---ing k--bhead': Jos Buttler's all-time tirade against Vernon Philander

Good to see King Kohli on board, he carries a lot of power in India. It’s all about the money of course. 5 days has to remain.

South Africa to back ICC's plan for four-day Tests

So the remaining shield matches will have no bearing on batting spots then. I’d like to think that if an opener or even a 5-6 played out of their skins they’d be a chance of making the Bangladesh tour.

Not sure Australia will need all day. 😊

New Zealand fight back at the SCG

The GOAT was brilliant, Phillips had a few lives on his way to 50.

Nathan Lyon shocks everyone by dropping TWO easy caught-and-bowleds

With no rain on the horizon the only factor which could save the Kiwi’s is a stoppage due to poor air quality. This pitch will deteriorate with variable bounce to go with the slow turn, I think Labu might be difficult to handle if they can find someone to field at short leg as Wade might feel he’s used up all his luck after the pull he wore yesterday!

New Zealand fight back at the SCG

That was nasty.

Matthew Wade cops terrifying blow at short leg, still tries to catch the rebound

Few people lose kg’s this close to Christmas!

New Zealand produce tame effort at SCG

Apparently he’s dropped 2.5 kg’s in the last few days. He is clearly not fit to play let alone lead a team in the projected heat.

New Zealand produce tame effort at SCG

And sometimes the best matches aren’t won on the fifth day but end up hard fought draws!

Why Test cricket deserves five days

I used to be a big fan of Taylor, he kept it simple and direct. When he was on the CA board he changed an awful lot and became corporate/establishment. 😡

Ridiculous to drop a day from Tests – Lyon
