Gee hasn't published any posts yet

Nice idea, it would also boost interest in the BBL if all the top level Australians were playing. It won’t happen of course, CA are too limited in their thinking to plan for a WC four years away and at the same time boost interest in their ailing cash cow local league.

Australia should use its next ODI series as a development tour

This has to be a joke, probably off a parody website. Not even NZ under PM Princess Perfect is this nice or forgetful.

Ben Stokes nominated for Kiwi of the Year

When Smith and Warner were on their holiday and a numpty like Labuschagne gets picked before you (and gets an extended run doing nothing) you are not playing tests again. He might as well go on the T20 circuit and just stick to the white ball stuff for Australia, if he keeps his spot.

Glenn Maxwell's Test career cruelled by World Cup flop

It’s probably true for the bowlers, even if Pattinson, Siddle, Neser and Holland (or another bowler for Australia A) crush Australia it’s doubtful they will get a game first test.

Tim Paine says upcoming Australia v Australia A game isn't an Ashes play-off

” Australia has a dismal win rate of just 24 per cent when playing in South Africa and they haven’t tasted victory at the famed Ellis Park since 1963 ”
That’s the focusing on rugby part of the article, focusing on crime is less depressing.

Wallabies still shaken by phone robbery

He must of saw the Wallaby jumper and figured this guy can’t catch me if I run off.

Wallabies still shaken by phone robbery

Nice guy, dud coach. Bring in the next hopeful, then get rid of him when the Sainters keep on failing.

St Kilda parts ways with Alan Richardson

It will be interesting to see if those umpires will be side lined in the future. Darrell Hair was canned for making the correct call on Murali and due to political pressure was black banned. These two bumblers make a crucial mistake in the WC final but seeing how NZ will not throw a tantrum they will probably get away with it.

ICC issues statement on controversial Cricket World Cup moment

Head to Head, or a dance battle.

Nine better ways to settle the World Cup final

Imagine if India were in NZs position. The BCCI would chuck a fit, lucky for those ICC twits the nice, humble and unimportant Kiwis have excepted this shambles.

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

Please use a sarcasm emoji next time, I thought you were serious for most of that post 😉

Was Kane Williamson the right choice for player of the tournament?

They can keep their PM. She is wonderfully woke but a bit late with gun laws, unlike our boring white guys.

Were the umpires wrong to award England six runs for this freak moment?

The wide was called and Santner not playing a shot or Boult at least not trying to run the bye off the keeper were shockers.

Two craps don’t make a correct 🙂

Darren Lehmann laments 'crap' rule that decided 'the greatest game of cricket' he's seen

Awesome game and the better team in the tournament got the trophy imo but what another big bunch of proof the ICC aren’t fit to run a corner shop. It’s the final, bowl another super over if you must have that joke of a rule. Keep bowling them to you get a winner. The more 4s and 6s rule should not be the way to decide who the WC winner is.

England win World Cup final in thrilling super over finish against New Zealand

Ratings for the selectors & coaches? I would go 7/10 like Smith & Behrendorff, good but not top shelf. Great job getting the team competitive, then they go all in on Stoinis.

Australia World Cup player ratings

No Carey for the first test, but I can see him coming in as specialist batsmen at six if things have gone to hell later in the series. Given that Smith imo is the only batsman who can handle swing that is a good chance of happening. Carey’s FC average does him no harm nowadays, 29 as a keeper isn’t that bad compared to the mid 30s of the sorry lot of specialist batsmen getting picked now. That’s the pathetic level batting we have now.

Alex Carey should not play in the Ashes

In WC final games it’s great to be fair to him, solid as a rock when it counts.

Thoroughly outclassed, but Aussies can take heart in ODI revival

I would ditch Stoinis for Mitch Marsh but I think him & Maxwell will play, Langer values loyalty. Hopefully they can pull their fingers out and perform when it matters, unlike those star Indian batsmen couldn’t last night.

Maxwell, Stoinis handed no guarantees to play semi-final

He has batted down the order as well a lot of the time, 7-8 if not opening.

Maxwell, Stoinis handed no guarantees to play semi-final

I would go with that line up. Marsh is obvious but with new pitches and only two games left Wade might come in instead of Handscomb for Khawaja. The form of the openers & Carey being a rock might persuade the selectors to take a chance with Wade at 3 and Smith at 4. I wouldn’t, I prefer 3 & 4 to be a proper batsmen if early wickets are lost as cover for Maxwell and Marsh/Stoinis. Wade deserves a shot but not now.

Mitch Marsh and Handscomb can help Australia beat England

You are a bit harsh on Finch, he has been in top form for a couple of months now. Maxwell is the passenger in that batting line up.

Mitch Marsh, Matthew Wade called in to cover for injured duo in World Cup squad

Barrett is a bit of an attention hoe, best to ignore a lot of his opinions imo.

Barrett’s Showdown comments are an indictment on the AFL media

Mitch Marsh should of come in, then picked for the match against South Africa to see if he can replace Stoinis. Missed opportunity imo.

Maxwell, Marsh injured as Australia forced into World Cup swap

If he took out Stoinis we might of had to reintroduce our knighthood system 🙂
