Cricket Part II


#8312

Why wouldn’t they give him a job?


#8313

They never should have done that. Our players will be furious. Playing countries like Bangladesh and Kenya is the time honoured Indian technique for giving average players outstanding averages. Our boys have missed out yet again.


#8314

So the typical Australian Summer?


#8315

Just cancel all test matches till Smith returns!


#8316

Australia and the bigger nations need to pay back the game by playing against the smaller nations. It’s a shocking decision by CA.


#8317

Yep, only cancelled because corporate/broadcast dollars were not going to be forthcoming.


#8318

I’ll borrow an old Gideon Haigh quote here :

“Does cricket make money to exist, or does it exist to make money?”


#8319

Pfft, exists to make money of course


#8320

Ponting has signed a multmillion-dollar dollar deal to join 7.


#8321

Michael Vaughan will be joining FS to partner Gilchrist.


#8322

Vaughan’s good. They need to make sure someone gets the English woman…is it Alison Mitchell?

mel and lisa would be good gets as both talk sense instead instead of ch9 drivel


#8325

Ireland are a rough chance of pulling off a win in their first ever Test. Pakistan’s most recent fourth-innings chases are 248, 114 and 81.


#8326

Is this a 4-dayer because the follow-on mark for tests is 200 (5 days).


#8327

Pakistan will clean up with the bookies though. Odds on this happening would be rather long.


#8328

Was a 5 day test but with the entire first day washed out it reverted to 4 days. As a result the follow on was reduced to 150.


#8329

#8330

So what I got from that article is that CA doesn’t understand the rules and couldn’t answer anyone’s questions. Therefore the state league took it upon themselves to make a decision.

I am shocked…


#8331

Pakistan currently 3/36 chasing down 160 to win against Ireland.
