Yeah, I just saw that, 4pm for us QLD types.

Cricket Australia letting fans vote on next retro ODI jersey

If they want to pick him purely as a batsmen then I have no issue with that, but he should not be in the discussion for the keeping spot.

Why Matthew Wade is better off not playing for Australia

So where do you vote for this?

Cricket Australia letting fans vote on next retro ODI jersey

No, they have just started to re-evaluate what they want from a keeper, and Keeping seems to be a much higher priority and thank goodness for that.

Why Matthew Wade is better off not playing for Australia

No, first four NRL rounds.

NRL games can’t get here fast enough

Did you know that Allan Border did not bat at first drop, did you know that Viv Richards did not bat at first drop. Did you know that Clive Lloyd didn’t bat at first drop. Neither does Smith or did Martin Crowe or Kohli or many others.

When Steve Waugh and the baggy greens ruled the Test arena

Give me a long sleeve version of that Perth Challenge strip and I will stump up the crazy amount of cash for it.

I am not sad to see him leave but I wish him well. He was quickly sliding down the pecking order.

I think he was trying to accuse the Red Melbourne team of cheating but the way it is reported is him having a go at the openers.

Funny game cricket, but Glenn Maxwell ain't laughin'

It was 7.5 when Stoinis got out. They was 10 overs to go with 1 wicket down and 7.5 needed on a wicket that is hard to get in on. So instead of feeding the strike to Dunk they panic’d and they all went the tonk and then have to balls to blame Stoinis and Dunk for the loss. Even more absurdly talking about a soft ball after 10 overs.

You don’t bag out your team mates like that publicly, and 7.5 an over I have been told over and over again is easy meat for guys like Maxwell. They threw that game away with the collapse, not the opening stand.

The openers laid it on a platform for them. If Maxi can’t handle a 10 over soft ball then he has bigger issues.

Well Foxsports is reporting that Maxi is blaming the openers for not going hard enough. If that is true it is very poor form.

Weren’t they $170 last year? Does that mean they are coming down in price? I might buy the odd t-shirt for around $30 on sale but there is no way I am paying $160-170 for a polyester jersey.

An NRL jersey rant to get off my chest (again)

I am interested why you think business entities/franchises have traction with the kids
while State teams don’t?

To me it is just down to how much CA bothered marketing one comp over the other and how one comp was on free to air and the other wasn’t. But maybe kids are so used to doing what marketing types tell them to do they couldn’t possibly understand what a State is. Of course State of Origin does prove that is not the case.

The reasons we have franchises now is because the marketing people at CA wanted franchises and they wanted two teams in Sydney and Melbourne.

What Cricket Australia must do to fix the Big Bash for 2020

I didn’t say spread it through the whole season. But if we could schedule a round or two of Shield cricket in the middle then we can use that for Test preparation/selection whilst still having the BBL. That is impossible with the franchises.

If they go back to State based teams you can also play Shield and One day games during the season as well.

Unfortunately the super league is still seen as an illegal comp, so it is never mentioned by the NRL or the QRL.

Who would have won the 1997 Telecom Bowl?

Two games in three days, the horror! How can anyone perform with such a punishing schedule.

This is CA we are talking about. If ratings and crowds continue to drop they will eventually do what they have always done, completely revamp the whole thing. Brand new fresh franchises with even more high viz colours like hot pink, sorry I meant magenta, and silly names.

The Dragons were the Washington Generals to our Harlem Globtrotters. The Raiders were the only team on a similar level to the Broncs.

Stephens was not a difference maker.

Dragons depth a problem for coach McGregor?

Get on youtube and watch a few Donald vids. Style is in eye of the beholder but Donald is very similar to Lee ans glorious to watch 🙂

The elegant eleven

As I said above Brett Lee and Alan Donald would be two locks for style and action. I you are going to copy anyone it should bs them, not that I would recomend copying anyone.

The elegant eleven

No Steve Smith?

The elegant eleven

Azharuddin was great to watch. Abbass was just before my time but I have the distant ferling that he was great.

Dean Jones had an expansive technique that I thought was stylish as well.

What are their economy rates? That matters given how England play ODI’s. Any thing under ir near 6 per over would be good enough for them.
