Cricket's all-time alphabetical 'R' Team

With the pairs of Richards (and sons) and Russells, as well as other high quality players, the ‘R’ Team is perhaps best described as ‘light heavyweight”’– strong and powerful but just below a few of the others. Still, this is a very strong team.

Cricket's All Time K Team

With some of the composite teams coming up, we are now past the half way mark of this marathon. To date, the B Team and the H Team are the stand outs and it’s fair to say that they won’t be challenged by the K Team.

Wouldn’t you rely on your MVP QB rather than your D against the GOAT?

The bizarre coaching decision that might have cost the Packers a Super Bowl

Yep, an absolute WTF moment.

Still, they had 3 shots at it from 8 yards.

Sangha can tour but I’d hate him to play. He could be a red ball, gun in a few years but not if he’s being brought up in T20.

Where’s Ashton Turner?

And am I the only one who thinks that Chris Green is a club cricketer?

Tanveer Sangha and Wes Agar are in my Aussie T20I squad for NZ tour

Four wicketkeepers!

He might be playing Saf.

Is Inglis really the best glove man in Shield? ( I haven’t seen enough of him to know).

My Australian Test squad to face South Africa

Every large organisation has a D&I officer these days.

CA won't mention Australia Day to promote BBL games, and the Prime Minister has had a big whinge about it

On the other hand, India just won the unwinnable test with a bunch of T20 cricketers.

Australia's reliance on the 'Big Four' is hindering them

Neser clearly should have played in Brisbane (as a few Roar contributors suggested) after Starc’s lacklustre performance in Sydney.

Also, Cam Green’s bowling was disappointing which didn’t help for Cummins’ workload.

Going forward, Cummins and Haze should be red ball only for Australia. Pay them not to play white ball cdi key because they are way too valuable.

This could have decided the match.

The GOAT denied by the barest of DRS margins

They are just putting up a graphic now which shows that on the last 13 years, 3 teams have scored 296+ in the 4th innings for losses, including the Pakistan effort with 450 a couple of years ago.

Should Australia have declared at tea?

President Allan Border has a nice ring to it.

Cummins looked tired yesterday.

Bradman and Richard Hadlee of New Zealand are the only two cricketers to be awarded such an honour while still playing the game.

Not sure that’s quite right. Alastair Cook is still playing.

I reckon Steve Waugh would be near the front of the queue as well.

There is certainly a lot to like with Green, not the least him putting a price on his wicket.

Wade and Harris can learn from Green's old-school batting

This is looking like a very good call!

After an exhausting week off the field, it’s time to play cricket

My point is that they aren’t likely to be the words used in such a situation.

India’s odds out to 14s. That seems very high in a two horse race.

Predicting India's strategy for the Gabba decider

While I am no expert on the mind of an overt racist, “brown dog” doesn’t feel like the sort of thing someone would randomly say in that situation.

I really don’t like this resting of test players by not playing them in a test match.

Three English players under the pump in Sri Lanka

Yep. India’s only real chance is if it bats first against a still tired Australian bowling line up.

There are no other openers in the squad unless you move Wade to open and Moises at 5.

Will Pucovski ruled out of Gabba Test as Australia confirm XI

It’s hard enough having one prima donna nut job on your team – the Nets now have two. Harden and Kyrie have a history of dissing team mates – this has disaster written all over it.

The winners and losers of the James Harden trade

Well that would be awesome!
