the redbacks equally were dudded by d/l in the first one day game this year. it needs a serious review

Travis Head makes a statement with absolute troppo innings of 230 from 127 balls

Eddings, paine and finch discussing your future.. what a trio of losers. they should be discussing themselves. (I will ignore cummins presence!)

Elite loyalty: Agar stands by under-pressure coach Langer

as a crows fan, lions absolutely robbed. worst umpiring since the bulldogs were gifted the grand final against Sydney. I started off barracking for the bullies that game but halfway in switched to the swans (who I never like) it was so outrageous

UNBELIEVABLE! Bulldogs snatch one-point win in semi-final for the ages!

Well there’s a surprise.. was always pretty obvious. And of course if the bowlers, Warner, smith and cam the newbie were in on it, I’m sure the wicketkeeper( now captain )Tim and the rest had no idea.

"Self-explanatory": Cameron Bancroft drops bombshell over bowlers' knowledge of 'Sandpapergate'

i thought the waugh video showed he was not at fault most of the time?

Lies and damn lies: Cricket’s debatable statistics

i would like to be judged on peak period (it was a great ball)

Lies and damn lies: Cricket’s debatable statistics

thats just not true. he said he was a “pure gloveman” as opposed to a keeper-batsman, obviously his batting since has been good, but he never said he was the best keeper in the country

James Pattinson is charging, Marcus Stoinis is flagging and Alex Carey's been anointed

paine wasn’t praising his keeping, he was bagging his batting! he said he was a “pure keeper” because his batting was crap, and until this year it was. I had seen him flub a runout and last year dropped one of those straight up and down ones, but its hard to judge on bbl, thats why I was interested in the shield game

James Pattinson is charging, Marcus Stoinis is flagging and Alex Carey's been anointed

inglis’ keeping against the redbacks described by your own commentators as “sloppy” and his miss of Nielsen a “shocker”. Carey a better bat and keeper.the selectors have got it right.

while most of the “failures”(my word) you have mentioned have also had unsuccesful cracks in the top order, that there are only 4 batsman in the top 10 seems right. im not sure any batsman anywhere seems consistently able to succeed lower down (altough abdv does ok at 5, but he is no ordinary batsman) maxwell doing well in the ipl this year batting in the top 4, im not sure where he was the last few years, lower i think, which may account for his improvement this year. happy to be proven wrong by statisticians

Ranking Australia's ten best T20 international cricketers

5 batsman in the team, with sangha and edwards averaging under 30 always looked skinny

Labuschagne puts Queensland on top in Shield final

sounds a bit like ferguson, so many times (it seemed) if he just makes 100 now he is in the test team.. but usually didnt. (and sure enough hughes out in the first dig)

Daniel Hughes' Test hopes on line in Sheffield Shield final

He would still be in the middle looking angry. Really poor sportsmanship and borderline ch……g

Was Marnus Labuschagne right to be awarded this controversial catch?

he would still be in the middle of the pitch shaking his head. this is a shocker, close to cheating

Was Marnus Labuschagne right to be awarded this controversial catch?

just opinion. let me know if anyone out there really doesn’t think a test bowler couldn’t tell if someone is scuffing the ball with sandpaper one ball to the next, wouldn’t be much point if there was no difference. as an old seam-picker I reckon I could tell . I’m not too fussed, and I think smith(Warner and Bancroft) have been hung out to dry a bit

Will Cricket Australia regret their ‘fan consent’ clause on Smith?

It’s a denial not a “repudiation “, and lawyers! Well….

Will Cricket Australia regret their ‘fan consent’ clause on Smith?

Non

Will Cricket Australia regret their ‘fan consent’ clause on Smith?

And the Australian cricket”enquiry” never even addressed the question of who else may have known. Doesn’t make you wonder why?

Will Cricket Australia regret their ‘fan consent’ clause on Smith?

does anyone really believe the bowlers , keeper (yes, St Timmy) didn’t know someone was roughing up the ball with sandpaper? give me a break. but smith has done his time. let him back

Will Cricket Australia regret their ‘fan consent’ clause on Smith?

interesting article, but i wonder about “english players getting sucked into playing for turn”. what is the alternative? if half the balls are turning, playing for no turn isnt going to end well either. i have no idea, not sure if there is an answer

Agar should play ahead of Swepson in Australia's nine Tests in Asia next year

Dan Cullen had injury issues too with multiple finger surgeries which I think undid him

James Muirhead and Australia's other fallen cricket prodigies

mcdermott the most likely of the keeping contingent to be able to come in lower down and bang 6’s on a normal or big sized ground

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

19 first class matches, mostly as a batsman with a 28 average and “not a high-quality keeper”. think we’ll wait and see..

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

Agree,he looks an excellent long term player, I don’t know why agar isn’t taking wickets,last year he couldn’t help himself and he looks fit and like he is bowling ok

Head, Bancroft make a statement at the WACA

also interesting who didn’t “make a statement” . Whiteman and Inglis failed twice, Inglis’s keeping in the words of the west oz commenter “sloppy” and his drop of Nielsen a “shocker”. Carey took a couple of excellent catches (including Inglis ) and made 24 and 82 not out
