You’re talking about the same ICC that reduced the World Cup to 10 teams…

The pros and cons of Ireland’s tour of the West Indies

Surely the ICC could fund it to expand the growth of the game?

You beat me to it.

Too true about locking in batting orders. I would also try to not have 2 accumulators batting together.

Three players Australia must select to tour South Africa

I didn’t realise this was a racial argument.

Proteas coach queries legitimacy of Rabada suspension

What is a unique Australian experience anyway?

Multiculturalism will be the focus of the T20 World Cup in Australia

Sounds nice.
The men’s tournament is to be held during a time of the year in southern Australia when the nights will be cold and an increased chance of rain compared to summer. Duckworth-Lewis here we come.

Always defending, never admitting.

No one can.

Glenn Maxwell powers Stars home with some of the best hitting you'll see

An incredibly talented player that has not be looked after at all. Should be playing Test cricket but unfortunately not. Would be an incredible asset at no6. Too often criticised. The selectors have wasted his talent. Don’t know what you had until it’s gone.

Why Glenn Maxwell should go to Bangladesh

Burns and Head are terrible vs spin but don’t deserve to be dropped from the touring party. However, Maxwell and Handscomb should be added. We need horses for courses in Asia. OKeefe as 2nd spinner also.

Langer says Test side likely to stay unchanged for June series against Bangladesh

Leave it unchanged. Marnus has shown enough as the second spinner. Swepson won’t outdo any of the quicks, and is also less of a batsman than all 3. Why weaken the team to keep Warnie happy?

Aussies and Kiwis both stewing over SCG line-ups

Who said he was a leggie?

O'Keefe should be in Test squad instead of Swepson

They’ve done their best over the years to choose anyone but OKeefe but have succumbed on a few occasions and were rewarded (particularly with the first Test win in India for a while). Warne loves a leggy and seems to have an influence on the selectors (Michael Beer) so we’ve got what we’ve got.

O'Keefe should be in Test squad instead of Swepson

They have completely rolled over. Their highest total in 4 attempts is 240. The excuses are embarrassing.

In a test of character, Williamson's New Zealand will not wane

Wasn’t that one at Adelaide Oval?

The Roar's picks for the top 5 balls of the 2010s

Obviously he’s too old to learn. Might as well drop him now.

Head is improving, even if his critics won't admit it

Not dropping him but pretty poor technique for someone who has to face the new ball.

Series slipping as Black Caps desperate for something special

For all the knocks on Head (he actually scores runs before getting out) I think Burns and Wade should be on shakier ground.

Series slipping as Black Caps desperate for something special

I’m so glad he’s getting runs down the order. The easiest places to bat in the short forms appears to be in the top 3 where records can be inflated. Down the order is where the pressure is and this guy is a diamond.

Carey building towards another World Cup starring role

No greater sight than DK Lillee kicking off the sight screen, big mo, shirt open, chains swinging from side to side, bursting into his delivery stride, then jumping into a 180 degree starfish appeal toward the umpire with 60000 Victorians going up with him. A thing of true beauty that will never be replicated.
I’m starting to tear up.
Also Ryan Harris from the other end. Heart the size of Phar Lap, in an injury plagued career.

Who's your favourite fast bowler?

Disagree. Money is killing the fabric of AFL. The AFL has changed the game of Aussie Rules for the worse.

India tour the right time to start limited-overs refresh

Money talks… isn’t that the AFL’s mantra?

India tour the right time to start limited-overs refresh

To be honest, I’m still getting my head around the ridiculously stupid scheduling that hardly sees any international cricket during January. Can’t get into the BBL so I may have a good chance to get stuck into a few jobs around the house.

Don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone

A remarkable changing of Australia's ODI guard
