We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Well, that umpire needs a career change.

Secondly, funny how no one calls Khawaja a cheat, but people lined up to lynch Stuart Broad.

Is this the worst umpiring decision in BBL history?

And yet, a standard far lower than what MLB players are held to.

Cricket needs a fielding score. How about this one?

Exactly.

It’s not homer vs the box car hobos but it’s close

Paul Gallen was just made to be punched

It’s a coin toss isn’t it?

The most frequent day of a result is day 4, and you want people there on the Sunday to see it…not on a Monday or Tuesday.

If tests go the journey then days 4 and 5 are on Monday and Tuesday which is arguably worse than day 1 and 2 being on the week days.

The Adelaide pitch was brilliant yet again. Now the others need to follow suit

And what of boats that get in trouble and need rescuing?

Sydney to Hobart race cancelled for first time ever

Could they?

Easily?

Go and organise it.

He missed a full and straight ball.

That’s not unlucky

The bowling of Australia and India is joyful

Because if it rains on one of those days, then a 4 day test is a guaranteed draw

That’s a regular haunt of mine, Pedro.

Great, great Indian.

I’ve been for a test. It’s amazing.

Just sitting on the grass there is a true gift.

WAY too early to making these calls.

Australia's shaky batting could cost the Border-Gavaskar trophy

Four was the right call. The reporter got it wrong.

When held by a player, the player is an extension of the ball.

Player got the ball inside the field of play, landed and then hit the rope.

Controversy after Black Cap comes within half a millimetre of taking one of the greatest catches ever

Yeah, but in 10 years time you’ll remember this fight Gallen won’t.

He won last night, but lost precious remaining brain cells.

You’ve misquoted Chappell.

He actually went for the gallows humour approach instead of defending himself.

He actually said “I’m not batting long enough to be batting badly. “

Australia reportedly settle on opening pair, XI, for first Test vs India

You need to go to India before you make rash and wrong calls about how they view other cricketing countries.

You are simply assuming the arrogantly indignant attitude Australia has toward anyone but England and India is shared everywhere else.

India is far, far more respectful of ALL their opponents than Australia is

Mark and Steve aren’t exactly tight knit brothers, but I get your point.

If only you could channel your powers toward accurate footy tipping…

I can’t see many opportunities eventually because rugby league drop goal kicking is horrific. Its not like rugby union where they routinely pot them from distance.

Secondly, if the drop kick is charged down and recovered by the opposition you are gifting them prime field position for an attacking set of 6.

What exactly is the field goal change designed to achieve?

Cricket.

The BBL looks absolutely nothing like international T20.

Australian cricket has always used domestic competitions to experiment foolish ideas. The two innings one dayers being an example.

Marnus may as well open, cause the actual declared openers will be walking wickets anyway.

Justin Langer confirms Cameron Green will debut in Adelaide - if he's fit

I think RB would need to balance the want to give Max an unchallenged run by using a weaker partner (Albon easily fills this role), with the need to think about the constructors championship money.

RB got lucky that racing point had an ordinary start to the season with clearly the second fastest car, and that Ferrari were duds.

In tighter seasons, picking Perez over Albon could be the difference between 2nd and 3rd in the championship, and with it, millions of $$$$.

Sergio Perez's F1 travesty

Solid wrap of the race and season.

There was more fuel to the Hamilton bonfire… when he’s not in front he’s having a whinge. GOATs don’t whinge.

Abu Dhabi is frustrating because there is so clearly better and more exciting layouts within the complex. Why can’t they just blast down to the hairpin? The two corners before are a joke and neuter the point of the hairpin. That should be an overtaking zone.

And put some bloody sand traps in! It’s the most forgiving circuit. There’s sand literally over the fence.

I hope Perez gets a seat next year.

Five talking points from the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Hmm…I do agree, but I have sympathy for those with bubble fatigue.

Australia was incredibly lucky. Victoria aside, the worst of the lockdown measures were significantly tamer compared to those overseas.

We in Singapore endured 10 weeks of a hard lockdown. It was necessary and very successful, but I’d hate the idea of doing it again. It was mentally destroying.

Asking players from countries who experienced severe lockdowns and bubbles to then fly to a relative flu free paradise to have to still live in a bubble would be a hard task.

I get why some have thrown in the towel.

Dear CA, what were you thinking?
