Cricket Part II


#8292

what degree does James Sutherland have?


#8293

Can David Saker cook?


#8294

Well there will be no dropping of the Marshes any time soon, he loves those blokes.


#8295

Two horrible collapses by WA this shield season…well under 100 when the other team batted well. I’m blaming Langer directly for them.


#8296

I’m predicting we’ll look back at this appointment and view it as a horrible mistake.

Personally, I was hopping for Dizzy to get the nod.


#8297

It could have been worse. They could have chosen someone who has been out of the game for years, and only had one major victory by the narrowest of margins over a decade ago.

And to extend the analogy further, at the time he presided over a team with people who had blatantly committed the same offence that the person he is replacing was charged with.


#8298

And both West Australians. :grinning:


#8299

BCCI now own CA.

Adelaide test is a day test after India refused to play a pink ball test.


#8300

That’s a real shame for the SA cricket public who have made that D/N Test a popular fixture on the cricket calendar in such a short time. I guess the BCCI don’t believe in progress.


#8301

No way the bcci were ever going to approve it ca are fools for even asking


#8302

So we’re already up 1-0?


#8303

So Nic Maddinson has been called in for the T20’s, despite having been completely dumped by NSW and no other state picking him up as yet.

Bizarre world is Aussie cricket.


#8304

My understanding is that CA were offering a sweetener of a 5 test series when we tour India next


#8305

Australia squads for England tour
ODIs: Tim Paine (capt & wk), Aaron Finch (vice-capt), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (wk), Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye

T20Is (also for Zimbabwe tri-series): Aaron Finch (capt), Alex Carey (vice-capt & wk), Ashton Agar, Travis Head, Nic Maddinson, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, Andrew Tye, Jack Wildermuth

Should just leave maddinson in Zimbabwe


#8306

Hes white, he’ll be murdered


#8307

Only if he is a farmer or has money


#8308

How does Boof get offered a job by CA? Astonishing.


#8309

Sutherland was a chartered accountant with Ernst & Young.

He was also a fast bowler, had a short first class career for Victoria, during which he got our new national coach, the BNG, out twice.


#8310

Don’t forget Sutherland was the finance manager at Fark Carlton when they loved paying players via brown paper bags.


#8311

Australia cancel Bangladesh’s tour here. The governing bodies of the ‘bigger’ nations need to take better care of the game. It’s an absolute disgrace that Bangladesh haven’t toured here for so long.
