Right you are Clifto, we’ve added him to the options

Concur. Be great when he finally makes his Wallabies debut.

Guys, we’re all for having a strong opinion, but please refrain from getting personal with your comments. A few have been getting a bit nasty towards Tom, which we don’t want to see.

Insider. Please mate. Watch the film. All the questions you’re asking are answered in it.

Uncomfortable as it might be, all sports fans should watch The Final Quarter

Thought Charlie Pickering’s take on that (not Newman specifically, but a lot of the ‘it’s not racist’ commentary) was pretty spot-on

So was the muppet who wrote the sentence.

Thanks for sharing the article! A great write-up on a special match.

Lord's: A glorious cricketing tragedy

I’ve always thought people named James have excellent opinions on cricket.

VOTE: Which expert picked the better Ashes side?

Oh, I’m not at all suited to fights, Paul. Much prefer running away from them.

VOTE: Which expert picked the better Ashes side?

I think we’ll just have to compromise and say my side has a better batting and bowling line-up 🙂

VOTE: Which expert picked the better Ashes side?

David was the guest, so I figured I’d give him the first pick.

Sorry to disappoint pal. I once made a 57-ball 12 in park cricket though, so I’m pretty sure I’ve got Gilly covered.

Ooops.

Cheers Ronan, they certainly played in some thrillers (that Windies game made it very difficult to concentrate on the Matildas-Norway match at the same time!).

Don’t forget about Kane’s two scalps mate

Not sure how that one slipped through, thanks James

Would have been more than happy for Stokes to have got it. I preferred Shakib’s weight of runs and wickets, but you could quite convincingly argue Stokes’ contributions had a bigger impact on the tournament.

At any rate, I wouldn’t have picked him as England’s best middle-order batsman before the tournament started.

I think he’s got the talent to be more than someone who specialises on bowler-friendly English pitches. His pace and skill for someone who’s only recently turned 24 are impressive.

I’d be surprised if we don’t see him during the Ashes.

India’s the next venue Carlin. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure there will just be the ten teams once again.

Few factors came into my reckoning r.e. Archer, Paul:
– His excellent death bowling, particularly in the final
– His performances in England’s wins were very good
– Coming into the tournament, England were missing a strike bowler – their attack was their one weakness. Archer filled that void and helped his team to a win in the final. (I went into a little more detail on that front in the podcast today, but that’s about the bones of it.
Fair call about Roy and NCN, both deserving nominees, and I like the ICC award. I’d love to see more teams in the World Cup, too (not that it’ll happen next tournament). Bring back the associate nations!

Thanks Riccardo. So much to like about Williamson, both on and off the field. Personally, his reaction to being told he was the player of the tournament takes the cake:

Second ball? I think you’ll find it was his 12th, Don

Thoroughly outclassed, but Aussies can take heart in ODI revival

Let’s just say I’m wary of writing the Maroons off. I was in primary school the last time they lost a decider.

Entirely understandable, given the last decade and a bit!
