We are massive fans of cricket and love making dream teams. We also love challenging each other to see who can make the best team. Barry is more of an expert on test cricket and Australian and English domestic leagues whereas Zac is more of an expert on cricket in Asia and Africa.

yes, that exactly. You just hate them cos they are Vics.

Finch's phenomenal form has him primed to fly into Test side

Surely a bowler would work in Tests if he were able to give up ODI’s and T20’s, as they are very different formats compared to Tests. It would reduce injury and the bowler-captain would be more relaxed to plan for Tests only.

Selectors must get over their captaincy bias

I would select Watto over Khawaja, bring him out of retirement i reckon,

The key players to watch in Australia's T20 tri-series against Pakistan and Zimbabwe

Cremer was unavailable for selection due to the money problem over in Zimbabwe where players are not getting payed.

kk mate, just that it doesn’t seem like it takes much skill to kick a ball. However, it does take skill to fake injuries like that.

The World Cup is a chance to reflect on toxic masculinity

very true, i think Jadeja and Shakib deserve more praise as they are constantly bowling their teams to victory

The problems of left arm orthodox bowlers

Sorry, I don’t get it. What sport are you trying to hit at?

The World Cup is a chance to reflect on toxic masculinity

coming from a person that hates soccer: we do not fear you, soccer is the most popular sport in the world only because it is introduced in every nation. If cricket was not limited to the commonwealth then it would be head and shoulders above soccer as it is challenging them atm even without most of the world involved. You “blokes” can go around saying it is on fear but it is also human nature to water something down if it hurts. For all I know, you people are more scared of losing popularity and then copping it even worse when nobody likes soccer and you are even less a part of society. From experience, people who like soccer also reckon they are top notch and bring it onto yourselves.

nothing masculine about soccer, as i have heard; they are better actors than the people up in hollywood

Smith had a lot more batting time than Maxwell who literally came out with 10 overs to bat every time, Smith had a good 45 overs on most occasions.

What's the best template for Australia's ODI team?

very true, which is why I have him up the order, we have much better death batsmen than Paine and he is partially the reason to why we havent been able to score big off the last 10.

Our pick for Australia's ODI starting XI

he is far from the best ODI opener, I could count at least 5 better than him. I almost threw up at how trash England was during the ashes, you may have a good ODI side but that is because it is well balanced not because the players are amazing.

Jonny Bairstow joins the ODI elite

true, if he was 26-27 and he had the skills he currently has he would be a team destroyer. The good thing is though, he could continue to play until he is 36-37 because he is on a diet of (max) 10 overs per day.

Narine.

Well said mate. You cannot justify a selection for test cricket on T20 form which is pretty much a game of luck (Jos Buttler exempt but that is due to a lack of options on the English part).

Why Glenn Maxwell deserves Test selection

You obviously like Travis Head as a player but… Maxwell is just that bit extra overall whether it be batting bowling or fielding. He has been absolutely robbed as of late but if given the chance I am sure he will perform well for Australia and will likely add to his sole test century.

Why Glenn Maxwell deserves Test selection

I am looking forward to seeing a lot of players dominating this season, we need people to put their hand up and demand selection because our ODI stocks are running thin

Pumped for the One-Day Cup

Yeah, Narine was extremely unlucky to miss out on a spot but could come in for someone if needed

The greatest IPL XI of all time

Yeah, too bad he was never really consistent in the test arena… he could have been one of the all-time great all-rounders.

The greatest IPL XI of all time

this team was mostly stats based not based on how they helped the team. Yes Watson is a gun at T20 but there are also many other outstanding IPL players and I was following the IPL rules of no more than 4 overseas players if i made an XI without rules then he would surely be in it.

The greatest IPL XI of all time

Wait, I got my stats from the official IPL website, and Malinga had that economy. Also, I wrote “The IPL’s all-time leading run scorer, as of last week” as in he was the leading run scorer last week but isn’t now. That is a good idea doing the Runs scored x s/r idea, might use it in my next article ?.

The greatest IPL XI of all time

yeah, we had a few people in the honourable mentions category that didn’t get published we had players like Uthappa, Gambhir and Narine among others in there.

The greatest IPL XI of all time

I see where you are coming from but… Harbhajan is 4th on the all-time wicket-takers list which is why he gets in and Raina is currently the second leading all-time run scorer of the IPL so he is a must-have in any IPL side and his nickname is Mr IPL ?.

nice article mate
