Gee hasn't published any posts yet

They could invite Meatloaf back to do his entire playlist and the G would still be packed for the GF.

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

There is every chance Burns will get dropped next season (his average is down to 38 and he gets bowled too much for an opener) so Maddinson needs to keep posting runs. Bancroft and Harris are hopeless, Renshaw is just a grade cricketer now and I doubt they will pick Khawaja as an opener so there is not much completion.

Why Nic Maddinson should be given more thought in the Australian opening batsmen discussion

Tasmanian’s need to stop caring about football & start watching rugby & soccer. Gil & the crew will give Tassie a team then.

Tasmania eyes AFL team by 2025: Report

Renegades 1, Stars 0. Amusing that the team Cricket Victoria treats like a red headed stepchild is more successful than mommy’s little favourite.

Glenn Maxwell's latest BBL finals failure stings

The BBL needed to end last week. Channel 7 moves the finals around to suit its schedule ( for Home & Away & the now low rating Kitchen Rules) & the excitement level has dropped. I didn’t even bother watching the Stars v Thunder game.

Fan apathy for Stoinis shows growing understanding of T20 subtleties

Wade is also lucky to have been picked. Maxwell has made a T20I ton opening so is the better option if Warner or Finch are injured/rested & Wells is a specialist middle order batsmen who could fill Maxwell’s slot. Wade is probably just backup but is not the best available.

He got picked for Delhi, I can remember Ponting saying in commentary for around 900k.

Just like Lynn & Short.

Also I wouldn’t get too carried away with the quality of the bowling in the IPL. Most of the bowlers are Indian domestic nobody’s and if a no-hoper like Uthappa is in the all time top scorers list it’s not that tough.

Marcus Stoinis is merely a Big Bash bully

And as a Renegades fan 😉

Can the Stars put recent wobbles behind them this BBL finals series?

Change the names and slightly modify some sentences and this could be a piece about Australian Rugby.

Retirements leading South Africa into grim cricket era

Played in the wrong country and no one cared about the result.

What are the reasons behind Australia's loss against India?

He hasn’t served it yet. Some biased SA judge with no clue about cricket will get him off like last time.

Kagiso Rabada handed one match ban for overzealous celebrations

A+ this piece, off the charts funny. But leave Steve Waugh alone, he played in the sweet spot when we didn’t need South African rejects so these funny sounding names are new to him. (He didn’t learn any of the actual South African players names, as was the practice of the time every opposition player was known as wa*ker, d*ckhead or ba*tard.)

The Liebke Ratings: India vs Australia, first ODI

That dragged on forever, even when I skipped the last two minutes of it.

The Liebke Ratings: India vs Australia, first ODI

It’s New Zealand, they do take PC crime very seriously over there. The police task force they established over this incident would of got more funding than their Air Force 😉

NZ spectator handed ban for racially abusing Jofra Archer

Burns & Wade are relatively safe for Bangladesh. Warner is more than likely to be ordinary there (I suspect last tour was a fluke) and we don’t want another Ashes like debacle with Labuschagne & Smith coming in within the first ten overs to cover for the flat track king and a newbie opener. Wade had done enough to keep his spot, barely.

Why Glenn Maxwell should go to Bangladesh

Indians play swing worse than Australia so a fit Boult and Southee combo could cause havoc. If Taylor and Williamson find some form this series will be tighter than those numbers suggest.

Another spanking on the way, with New Zealand set to slide further down Test rankings

Added all-rounder Marsh & spinner O’Keefe? Greens back is still dodgy & O’Keefe as the second spinner (if played) with Swepson as back up looks good.

Langer says Test side likely to stay unchanged for June series against Bangladesh

They should of ran down the pitch another 50 times to give NZ a decent score for once 😉

Rare scenes as Aussies controversially cop 5-run penalty

Deader than disco 🙁

Renegades' BBL title defence is in massive trouble

Get rid of Klinger, he is a curse on Victorian cricket. Hopeless when he played here and looks just as bad as a coach.

Michael Klinger frustrated by Renegades' start

Hypocrites. A pity Pattinson isn’t a dud like Stoinis or he could skipped his ban and played in Brisbane against Pakistan.

Marcus Stoinis cops fine for abusing opponent

Still better than the no hit wonders, The Melbourne Stars. Nabi is back for the last half of the season so they will improve a bit.

The Renegades are a one-hit wonder

A+++ for Head, that ton has saved us the speculation whether Mitch Marsh will play at the SCG. F- for the chances of Adelaide or Perth stealing the Boxing Day test like they fantisise about. A+ for the Kiwi supporters for travelling a thousand kms to watch a test match here when few of them would walk ten feet to watch one in NZ.

The Liebke Ratings: Australia vs New Zealand, second Test

There is also the one off test vs Afghanistan in Australia before the Indian series. Unless one of them “does a Warner” I think they are fairly comfortably in the team to the Indian games.

Joe Burns, Matthew Wade and Travis Head are here to stay
