Honestly sometimes I like that commentators are more relaxed with their commentary and that they are not just mechanically spewing out stats and information

Some gentle advice for commentators

Yeah, I think so too, he deserves a chance after a pretty good shield campaign

Who should bat at five for Australia in the Ashes?

honestly I think their success depends on their main player’s commitment, AB and du Plessis cant just walk back to the international set-up without doing some non-franchise cricket beforehand

My IPL team of the tournament so far

There are a few small errors in this otherwise good article: Amit Mishra is not Delhi’s skipper (Rishabh Pant is) and Mitch Marsh never went to India, instead staying home with family

IPL suspended as more Aussie cricketers go into isolation

shaw maybe, but before the halfway mark agarwal had only made one fifty with an average in the 30s

My IPL team of the tournament so far

Well who would you put in place of him?

My IPL team of the tournament so far

The reason I did a half-way point one was because I wasn’t sure about how far we would get into the rest of the tournament. If we do finish it then I will do another one

My IPL team of the tournament so far

Alex Carey was potentially but in the squad not only as a keeper but as a middle-order batsmen, he bats at 5 for SA and could probably to it for Australia

He hasn’t done that well in the ipl so far against stronger opposition

Ranking Australia's ten best T20 international cricketers

You are right, a few solid seasons to build up his career could totally boost his chances for a future test spot. Apart from Street there are not a lot of quality ‘young’ players so I wouldn’t be surprised if SA and Australia invest some time into his development

Daniel Hughes' Test hopes on line in Sheffield Shield final

Aaron finch could possibly be a good replacement as an opener because of his good form in NZ

Three stars who can join as a replacement in the 2021 IPL

Actually a wicket every 6 balls

Why cricket doesn’t deserve to be an Olympic sport

Was released and no one bought him back

Smith will shine and Meredith will struggle in IPL

The pink ball only really starts to play tricks after a day of bowling, so if they were to implement it to one dayers it would have to be changed a bit

What does the India vs England white-ball series portend for ODI cricket?

Which is why Pujara was important because Pant did not think he had to be overly cautious when he did play aggressive

From Uttarakhand to Gabba hero: Rishabh Pant’s red ball career so far

One off the best partnerships in test cricket at the moment is Pujara and Pant. When they are both in, you know that Pujara is going to stick it out and be there to the end, which allows Pant to play is shots and put pressure on the opposition

From Uttarakhand to Gabba hero: Rishabh Pant’s red ball career so far

A draw results in the team at the top of the table winning the trophy

England waste toss advantage as Aussies’ WTC hopes all but end

It is plausible but his bowling is not up to scratch to be a second spinner

Which spin bowlers should Australia pick to tour the subcontinent next year?

100% agree Wade’s time is up. He showed glimpses at the top against India but since then has just been pretty disappointing. If Australia are to have a long-term, consistent wk than they need to be able to bat down the order as we already have a solid top 4. Inglis or possibly Phillips are our best options moving forward

Matthew Wade's time is up. Josh Philippe must take the gloves

If you are going to play McDermott it had to be in the top 3. In bbl9 he batted down the order and nothing went right for him, he is just not that type of player. First drop is best for him with probably Stoinis and Marsh at 5 and 6

Australia must flip the script with multiple changes in Wellington

You can’t just take Maxwell to the subcontinent on the basis that he is decent white-ball spinner. His bowling FC figures are not that great and pretty much the only way for him to get back in the team is with his batting

Which spin bowlers should Australia pick to tour the subcontinent next year?

NSW are so stacked with quality that their second 11 could probably win the cup

Warner to return for NSW, Smith still out

One good thing about the WTC is it t has added a lot of purpose to a few series. For example, normally I wouldn’t watch a windies vs nz series but because of WTC it had more context other than they were just due to play each other

Has the World Test Championship made Test cricket better?
