They also made a pretty dominant start in that last odi tour. Lol

Australia destroy South Africa in Johannesburg

That price difference to me is shocking. Are they making that much money fro the tickets sales? plus the over priced food and drink.

Ignore the haters, Katy Perry can help the Women's T20 World Cup fill the MCG

Hi Bobbo, totally. It another thing C.A. and the broadcaster has missed. It makes them look like they couldn’t run a cake stall.

Fan apathy for Stoinis shows growing understanding of T20 subtleties

Hi Mary, I love your work and I love you even more because your an ‘eel’. Lol. I have only been listen to ‘the rugby League digest’ Super league podcast (I think it is excellent). I will look up the kangaroo one.

Has international rugby league finally turned a corner?

Hi Kopa. While I don’t think ya country needs or is way se to give 100% to ‘all’ tournaments, I don’t think a country should treat it as nothing. It’s opportunity to ‘blood’ new guys, rest the main ones. That few years from 2016 in odi, I wasn’t sure what C.A. was trying and I am often scratching head at the boards. Lol

Australia need to break South Africa hoodoo

Hi IAP. I think a big cost may come from injured players being compensated while ‘sitting out’ or unable to work if not yet ‘fulltime’. I’d expect injury numbers to be larger then AFL percentage wise to be bigger for awhile.

Expanding AFLW faces a test that it will pass with flying colours

Hi Timmuh. That is a thing I don’t like. People can say ‘just get it, or only cost $20 a month’ or what ever. But after you got your ‘fox’, ‘Kayo’, ‘Netflix’, plus what ever other thing members of your family want, it isn’t just one thing. That has been a bit of a con. Also, having stuff easy and free for the youth is helping your future. Kids will be playing cricket, but it’ll be 20 over playing and to make big bucks anywhere around the world, that then we won’t get to see because of ‘walls’ and other countries tournaments. I know I being negative but I don’t like where it could end up going.

Where has Australian cricket gone?

Hello dunger and insult. I also think the broadcaster should have some say, but what’s it has become isn’t ‘blasphemy’, a ‘super league’, best of the best, concise tournament. 60 or so match’s! I think it’s twice the length. My memory not best, but I have a feeling the first seasons had more of the Australian team ‘stars’ in more games. For me personally, it’s ‘test’, but I did love the odi tournament. I’m not really interested in a ‘league’ style comp, a team buys player from around the world. I like the ‘country vs country’. I guess you style ‘selected’ for the ‘Sydney turnips’ or the ‘London shoelaces’ if there a world comp eventually. But being ‘selected’, representing your country is big to me. It’s hard to find articles on the last 20 over aust vs ind that was just played, let alone been able to watch it on pay tv of find a free site online. I have watched 3 full games of the bbl. reports I have read saying players haven’t been of standard, that’s a shame and just poor. I’m not saying it couldn’t work, but the three formats, multiple leagues, a dozen countries, plus the different broadcasters don’t have a set plan. It’s a ‘land rush’ at the moment.

Where has Australian cricket gone?

I find the entire thing bizarre. Often trumpeted as Australia’s number one sport, lol,(to me it is). Yeah, It does often feel the sport pushing something smelly up a hill. It’s length, thee formats seeming to compete against each other, half a dozen international boards trying to screw others. Imagine any other sport doing something opening these lines. Nrl shortening the comp regular comp, puting other half of games behind paywall, then making a ‘7’’s or ‘9’s’ and it run for 8 weeks, one game a night. It might be great to watch, but at the sacrifice of the basic comp? The 20 over game ‘had’ big viewers (maybe still does), but at cost of the other formats? Do they hope the other formats die off to give it one ‘easier’ format? It almost seems like it, how businesses or often run. I’m not saying this ‘is’ happening, I just can’t figure out some of the reasoning. I’m worried about the future of cricket.

Excellent work Hutch.

England are cricket's new bad boys

Your first paragraph is simply not true. Go sit a day in court that your nearest, a ‘list day’.

Israel Folau and the governing bodies who are powerless to govern

Hi IAP. The only idea I have is to try out and ‘blood’ players in nothing games (no offence to India, lol. All countries only take serious really is the ‘at home games’ and world cups).

India thump Australia to claim ODI series

I don’t follow religiously ufc, I more ‘travel’ across the fighting types abit. To me ufc is just like one of boxing’s sanctioning organisation. it like saying wbo is better then ibf and wbc. A fighter from wbo saying there the best and not fighting someone from the other belt isn’t too real to me. There’s ufc, Strikeforce, Rizin… was ‘pride’. I always dreamed Fedor could somehow get across, to see how he would go.

There's only one solution for the UFC's biggest problem

Hi TheGeneral. I wouldn’t have Maxwell as an allrounder, just batsmen. His bowling a bonus, maybe if stuck and right circumstances. But you would have M.M. there. C.A. and selectors are just trying stuff out in these sort of tournaments.

Australia smash India in record-breaking win

Agreed Sgt, Kohli can bat anywhere. Saying the lineup was the problem only rings if Kohli didn’t get out and ran out of overs and/or partners because of later position. Or are they bluntly saying Kohli don’t have the skill/can’t handle the pressure to face ‘zamper’ at the stage and pressure pacer bowlers were building? Aust were just ‘on’.

Australia smash India in record-breaking win

Agreed Paul. It would be unusual for them not to bounce back, even from a flogging. Surely it just on the day, Australia were ‘on’ and India ‘off’.

Australia smash India in record-breaking win

It may be an old cliché but ‘it will be a sad day if it happens’. Or another one, which will make true, it being an actual time an ‘older’ person says its was better in my day’.

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

Yeah it’s money. All countries want to get the most they can. This is India having a time like ‘our’ summer, a touring side or two (the board hoping the more competitive the better). Because it’s all ‘me first, me first’ countries aren’t to fused helping out Bangladesh’s cricket’s-entertainment season for example. It’s will happen more and more, the ‘Australian cricket summer’ will change because other countries want their own one. That’s where a strong/fair/even ICC board comes in, to plan and run it, fair and evenly.

Glenn Maxwell's ODI axing could boost Australia's World Cup hopes

Hi fella’s. My take is, I’d be happy but wouldn’t be thumping my chest too much if we, lol (Aust) won in India with kohli out and there next highest averaging batsmen. Sure it would be marked in the books, but I’d wait about buffing my chest out till I beat the team with the best two batsman in playing.

Australia and India are clearly the two best Test teams

Hi republican. I don’t think there is that much currently separating them. For me, India would need to win more convincingly then our last tour ‘there’, then ‘Them’ win more convincingly touring here against our ‘regular’ strength team to be a comfortable way ahead of us.

Australia and India are clearly the two best Test teams

Hi The Bush. I a hope India doing their own D/N recently was a step to get India ‘comfortable’. I do find ‘touring’ dictation sad. I want ‘my’ team being the best, to me that means anywhere/anytime, take that challenge where the home have a strong record. It like the heavy weights champ avoiding fighters but claiming awesomeness. Lol

Australia and India are clearly the two best Test teams

Hi Brian. I agree. I don’t mean this rudely, but what are some solutions? There are some tough Problems that I don’t think will be solved to help this. I don’t like the complaints of lower ranked/weaker countries coming here in summer. We all want good games, but What are is meant to happen? Have those weaker countries come here during a winter tour? Those teams getting games/tours to the high ranked countries is hard, them not touring won’t help them improve. What a screwed up catch-22. Because ICC have no real overall power like ‘league’ sports, it makes it tough to get a roughly equal schedule, that with international travelling time, world seasons, odi, 20/20 leagues and internally 20/20. Cricket has a tough task. Cricket boards almost ‘having’ to run with a ‘me first’ style for funding makes it hard. Would a mega/WSC media style take over to fund a take over get a test competition right?

Australia and India are clearly the two best Test teams

Hi spruce. I agree and that’s no offence to him. I still rate his brain and would definitely have him in my ‘brains trust’/leadership group on the field and in the team. His input and reading of the game is gold. Vice captain maybe, but the the final decision maker, if that makes sense.

A better way to hold the World Test Championship

Yeah, it is a sad predicament with those too countries. Imagine if those two never played each other in a series, years years and decades, but make it into the finales. Lol. From me looking from the outside at the ODI world cups and such, the public from those two countries love the games between the two. Bloody politicians.

A better way to hold the World Test Championship

Hi Steele. That an interesting idea, I would still like them to get a reward for winning one test. It all ideas that hot to be thrown around to get it right. Maybe points from series win could end with dead games, teams giving up if series is lost but not over.
