Love Test cricket, love cricket history and love Victor Trumper. Also, enjoy the ODI world cups but the T20s and regular ODIs are just money-making garbage. Sorry. Like the Olympics, soccer World Cup and NRL finals, too.

I won’t be commenting anymore, PR, but I’ll make an exception for your articles.

Just give me a heads up when you post something.

Avoiding defeat often means avoiding victory: Why strike rate matters

PR

I’m getting off the platform.
I still browse articles but I will no longer be active.

I enjoyed your ashes 1989 piece 👍

Australia's greatest: Bradman or Trumper?

FYI

The author chose Border in his all-time Australian XI

Mark Waugh was selected in the fourth XI

Australian cricket’s seven best Test XIs

How Australia could have won the 1989 Ashes 6-0

Don’t take it personally.

I wouldn’t do the ‘back and forths’ with people. Just make your point once and move on.

Regarding your last, it’s up to you –
Probably won’t get a big response.

Anyway, I’ve enjoyed your series on junior.

Comparing the Waugh twins with peers in Ashes battles

👍

Commemorating the birth of Victor Trumper

Another good job PR

England really were below par in this era and it’s hard the believe they only won one live test in eight series.

It is interesting to speculate what might have happened if the 2005 series coincided with an Australian side that contained both Waugh’s someone near their peak.

As you have shown, they were both such great players under pressure.

They might have made the difference in such a tight series.

Comparing the Waugh twins with peers in Ashes battles

Definitely

Capping is not only legitimate but in fact absolutely imperative when comparing batsmen

Are you sure about that last sentence?

The mega rich are 95% on the left

Zuckerberg,
Gates,
Dorsey
Bloomberg,
Bezos
Anyone in Hollywood
Anyone in University
Anyone in the media (except Fox)
Soros

Almost every top 100 company in the US is fully woke to the point where asking for an ID before voting is considered deeply Ray Cist – not my words by those of the current President

Walt Disney
Delta
Amazon

The only exception I can think of is Elon Musk.

So which party stands for the working class?

There is something rotten in the Rainbow Nation

😂 😂 😂

There is something rotten in the Rainbow Nation

Why would I want to protest ‘disparity’?

Isn’t a rocket scientist supposed to earn more than a plumber?

Isn’t the guy who works 80/week supposed to earn more than the guy who works 40?

Doesn’t the guy who saves all his money deserve to have more than the one who spends all on booze and women?

Eliminate disparities???

Sounds like a typical University education.

There is something rotten in the Rainbow Nation

Same here.

Everyone I’ve met from SA say it’s become a s hithole.

They can’t all be wrong.

It’s not that hard in Australia to start with NOTHING

and make your way into the middle class

My parents did it

Came to Oz with ZERO

Couldn’t speak the language so didn’t know that ‘dirty slimy Dago’ was a pejorative

Plenty of discrimination in them days against Italians

But they worked their butt off

Nor is their story an isolated case

EVERY single person from mum’s village secured a comfortable life in Australia

And that same story is true anywhere in the west

Immigrants to America, from Africa, India, South Korea, Chile

They all do well through building strong families, hard work, avoiding vices and living a clean life (and dare I say it, religion helps).

It’s not that hard

But the welfare system destroys self esteem and motivation

And when you see yourself as a victim

rather than the star of your own success story

Things will never change.

Welfare, handouts and affirmative action, destroy personal agency.

Rather than go to the next B LM protest, or march for g ender equity,

Ask your boss for overtime.

Left is fine Rowdy

As long as you don’t want to come and redistribute my money

among your friends 😂

Eye for eye, Rowdy?

Let’s avenge crimes from 200 years ago

What could go wrong?

There is something rotten in the Rainbow Nation

I get it

Dirk thinks the right way forward is revenge.

Let’s round up all those white people and cart them off to A uschwitz

You can operate the watch Tower, Dirk

There is something rotten in the Rainbow Nation

Brilliant JN

And you are speaking from direct experience in SA

I fear that the west is heading down the road of r acism 2.0

Where the teams change sides.

My days in Australia are numbered.

Poor people today,
in the west,

Are 100x wealthier that those from the middle class in 1890.

I live in Indonesia,
were the middle class earns less than someone on welfare in Australia

And Indonesia is one of the safest of countries.

Poverty is never an excuse for crime – EVER

Why would crime rates fall when people claim that it is justified and legitimate?

In the 20th century,

100 million people died because China and the USSR decided to follow Marxist ideology.

Marxism was, is, and always will be, a road to hell.

@Big Joe

You took the words right out of my mouth.

A memo to b lacks :

Stop joining ‘the cribs’ and ‘the bloods’ and start going to the library.

Stop impregnating random women and find yourself a respectable wife.

Stop taking Fentanyl and go to the gym instead.

Stop l ooting and r ioting at B LM protests and volunteer for extra shifts at work.

Stop committing homicides at 4 times the rate of whites and go to church instead.

In the 1930s, 40s and 50s, these suggested behaviours were common among black Americans.

Why did you stop??

Maybe it’s time to stop blaming Ray Cist and return to your old ways.

There is something rotten in the Rainbow Nation

Definitely.

There’s a couple of great documentaries on YouTube, too.

If you haven’t seen them.

Capping is not only legitimate but in fact absolutely imperative when comparing batsmen

Agreed

A missed opportunity

Comparing Mark and Steve Waugh against Pakistan

Strange

Here’s another interesting observation

Junior would have been rated much higher had he played in Trumper’s era, when there wasn’t such an obsession with smashing opponents.

No one cared if you made 250* against some weak opponent.

Comparing Mark and Steve Waugh against Pakistan

I’m surprised Dave won’t acknowledge that India in Australia were minnows, in the 1990s

😱

Comparing Mark and Steve Waugh against Pakistan

150 in front of par is a good marker

From here, the chances of defeat are in single figures.

Anything beyond that point is low impact

And before you say it, Pope

That doesn’t mean these runs don’t count or that the captain should declare.

It means they would be excluded from an analysis of high-impact performances.

Which is what PR has done 👍
