Mitigating circumstance with Greg telling Trevor to do that. Was it about the same time Greg starting a duck farm? He clearly lost it with that.
With the sandpaper it was the case of a weak captain meekly not leading the team from what was dark forces being operated within. And Bodyline couldn’t’ve operated without the clear cooperation of the bowlers.

My point is that the wicky and the bowlers have too much specific responsibilities in the field. Batsmen basically just have the general responsibility of fielding.
Dev and Akram had issues at times that batsmen never faced.

I’m not against a Batsman captain bringing him/herself on a la Border. Who l think did not trust spinners so much that he doubted his own acumen as a bowler.

Picking a bowler as captain is fraught. I’m not discounting their capacity just the logistics

Cummins: captaincy chat a moot point

The real one. Not the dilettante.

Absolutely. Monty Python even made fun of him with a mock variety show called, “13 Weeks of Off-spin Bowling with Jim Laker”. And he took those famous wickets on an infamous pitch.

Gee Dunger B, that’s a lot of pressure on the keeper. He has to be on for the whole game. And l disagree with Paul. The most important aspect of captaincy is when fielding. Yes, off-park issues, man-management & batting you’ve got a deal with for sure. But having people on-side, understanding your tactics, accepting your imprimatur, psyching the bowler and psyching-out the batsmen are the coal-face.

But there have been so many more batsmen that have done it better. A major problem for bowlers is over or, usually, under bowling themselves. Or suffering form lapses like Botham; I think.

So the big Vic clubs get bigger, the small Vic clubs get smaller.

So instead of doing it right the LOC will dictate.

How do we make the AFL season fair?

Let’s not try cook the roast in 45 mins. The General won’t believe me saying thus but let Paine’s time run it’s course. The choice is not necessarily as Stark as giving someone their Head because it should be Cummin sooner than you think.

And that is the same reason why most Sth Aussies hate the city of churches stuff. Welcome to the feeling!

I haven’t seen any churches walking around Adelaide either.

To put a cat amongst the pigeons the criteria implicit was the Australian way of picking the team. Select your best XI and pick the captain from them.

If we use the, admittedly antiquated, English method where you pick your captain first then only one person could be captain.

I. M. Chappell

Now there are probably 50 batsmen more prolific, more eloquent with quicker strike rates.

His average as captain was over 50, he never lost a series, he won more games without the combo of Lillee n Thommo.
He had ‘everyman’ on the team with probably the exception of skull. He knew how to lead a team. His leadership in the field was a paragon of attack. No captain has taken more wickets by fielding pressure.
——
But more than that he lead players from being pauper amatuers to professionals.
Every Test, ODI, 20/20 and 1st Class player’s bank account owes something to the fight he took on.

So I aver that he is actually the most important and influential person the game has ever seen. And anyone that can tell KP to go forth procreate must have earnt it.

And no, l don’t care who you drop to fit him in.

Is the 2013 AFL draft the best since 2001?

If Aish could be 60% as good as his uncle he’ll be good for you guys.

I loved Tangles and Merv.

Aussie bowlers I could watch all day

Probably because Adelaide hasn’t developed as quickly as Sydney or the other 3.

I remember waking up late on the days of mid-late 70s cricket broadcasts tuning into the commentators talking about the “city of churches”. We’d be sitting in our jocks, stoned n drunk, wondering if the commentator’s drugs were better than our’s, saying stuff that didn’t relate to what the average native did.

Last census had SA as the least religious state and NSW as the most. It’s been that way for a while.

Gower was a better cover driver period.

Me neither. Steve Waugh is in my top team ever because l love a fighter. Mark Waugh was a poor man’s Gower.

Thommo? Couldn’t even take a bump.

Maybe it’s something hidden about Tex then. He appears to go missing in the contest. I like him but l imagine he could be a bit stubborn and dogmatic. I have been wrong 7 times in my life, l admit it. 😂

Being in NSW & Qld these past 30 years I’ve lost count of the times that the rains all the time thing has been said about Adelaide. When they find out it’s the driest they’re gobsmacked.
