Perhaps Laxman if looking for style? Was always great to watch.

A stylish XI versus an awkward XI

He probably deserves a week, however as he is in my supercoach team, and since so is Nathan Cleary, sense should prevail, and he gets a suspended fine……

'We can't have it' - Cronk slams NRL brats after Walker video emerges

Well I’m all for it, but can certainly see the hurdles in the way.

A simple change could get rid of one of cricket's pet hates

I thought Bill Lawry was a commentator…

Don’t hate the idea. I think its probably a bit optimistic to think it would be in place by this summer, esp when boards are looking to keep revenues up as much as possible.

I’m sure there would be some sports science guys with opinions on this. Maybe bowling deliveries 7 and 8 each over places a bit more unwanted stress on bowlers bodies.

I remember Botham had the record and then Hadlee went passed him, then Kapil…..

Remembering the two Ws

Thanks Allcaps…..

Why Twitter will be your new pub when the footy kicks off

Sad finish to a legendary career. Retired as the leading wicket taker in Tests at that stage if I’m not mistaken.

Remembering the two Ws

That 1992 series in England is still imprinted on my memory. All those highlights of Waqar bowling those late inswingers to the hapless Pommy batsmen. Great times.

Also, great mention of Asif Mujtaba. I can still see him hitting S Waugh for 6 off the last ball to tie an ODI (in Hobart from memory), not so great times, but great history!!

Don’t forget Maxy Walkers collection of stories (“Great blokes and ripping yarns” or some such….). Might be more for fans of the Channel 9 commentary team!!! 😂

My cricketing library

Ferriday and Wilson’s “Supreme Bowling”. A great detailed read on 100 great bowling performances. I think they may have produced a similar book for batting performances, but I don’t have that one.

In fairness Paul, if there are no fans, I’d prefer to skip the MCG test. Its been a poor place to host test cricket for awhile now, without the massive crowd it wouldn’t be missed.

I cant see how we cant play Tests at different locations from a biosecurity point of view, I’m sure its possible. I guess it might come down to money.

India open to Adelaide hosting Test series

I’m surprised we haven’t postponed the T20 WC to Feb/Mar 2021 already. Allows the IPL to go ahead in Oct, the Test summer can go ahead, and I’m sure Aust can restructure its ODI and T20 summer to accommodate the WC. The longer the WC is delayed, the higher the chance of fans being allowed into the games.

Hard to believe someone born and bred in Monte Carlo would be entitled!!! 😛 😛

Ricciardo rolls Renault for make-or-break McLaren move

Classic McNamara….

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

Is this true Spruce, or you just poking a bit of fun his way? Hilarious if true.

Oh Brayden, your use of “stillborn” to describe this season made me gag on my corn flakes. Dear oh dear……

2021 is certainly shaping up as an interesting one, plenty of unknowns at this point, and as you say, we still have to get through 2020 yet.

Sainz, Ricciardo kick off the F1 silly season

Hey Micko, agree that its sad Danny Ric would be at Ferrari. But as mentioned in another article, I’m not convinced that Carlos wont “rock the boat”. He can be a bit firey at times, and won’t love being the number 2 driver for long, regardless of what his contract says. I’m really looking forward to it, should be a great battle, with hopefully a few tears and tantrums to keep us entertained in 2021.

Ricciardo rolls Renault for make-or-break McLaren move

McLaren even compares favourably to what would likely have been on offer at Ferrari“. I agree. The old romantic in me would love to see Dan in the scarlet car, but realistically, as far as winning the DWC is concerned, its just as likely to be in a McLaren as a Ferrari.

Ricciardo rolls Renault for make-or-break McLaren move

Michael, your “he’d be more easily massaged into a supporting role for Leclerc” comment is an interesting one. I cannot see Sainz happy with that, he didn’t exactly take a back seat to Max when they were at TR together, even though Max was the chosen one.

Love to see Danny Ric in the red, but seems Carlos has been picked for now. Good luck to him. In fairness, McLaren might win a WC before Ferrari anyway.

Ricciardo ready for red but Sainz makes fine sense

The plague is caused by bacteria, not a virus. Sorry to be technical…

Cartwright can say no to his flu shot, but the NRL should say no to him

No Gus? No worries…

Media expert casts doubt on Nine's NRL walkaway claims

yeah I had to read it twice because I couldn’t remember seeing Wade in there…..

What if Australia had to field a team in all three formats at the same time?

Freo wins the flag DESPITE….!

…..all evidence to the contrary!

Are the two WA clubs victims of the AFL's Vic bias?

This mickey mouse stuff might be a bit of fun, but what happens when a player from your club gets injured and misses games once the season is back on?? Might be alright for the Carlton boys, what with their strong wrists and all, but hate to lose big Brodie for the season proper…..

AFL legitimately announces 'Australian Dice Football League'
