Cricket Part II


#8372

Pakistan with a duke ball in England can be just lethal. Or top order hasn’t been very good for a long time


#8373

Going left field, Warne. Best cricket brain of any of them, if you ignore his off-field stuff.


#8374

A NEW documentary will air allegations that match fixers corrupted a groundsman who helped prepare the pitch for an Australia Test match in Sri Lanka two years ago.

The Australian newspaper has reported that broadcaster Al Jazeera is set to release a documentary airing allegations that the pitch used for the 2016 Test match Australia lost in two and a half days in Galle had been doctored by criminals.


#8375

It shows how gutless the ICC are (and also CA) where India can reject a test playing condition (under lights) because of significant disadvantage yet we see a pitch as bad as that and say nothing.


#8376

Also Fleming confirmed to move to channel 7 cricket commentary.

And before anyone bags him or some of the channel 9 commentators, have a listen to Darren Sammy and Dean Jones on star sports 1. They are ■■■■■■■ terrible, yes worse than Slater.


#8377

Can they please sign some up some non Australian commentators?


#8378

What? Like KP?


#8379

Dunno. Just want more international opinions as opposed to constant Aussie voices.


#8380

Get bumble


#8381

They have picked up Vaughn, KP and the female commentator everyone likes.


#8382

Anyone from Asia?


#8383

Harsha Bhogle would be good but I think he’s on ABC


#8384

That female one is a shocker (the one from triple M?) How does anyone like her? Shes the pom version of Slater


#8385

Don’t know who it is, I only know the female Aussie comms, haven’t heard the Pom one.


#8386

They should get Alison Mitchell who works for BBC test match special. Also did some work on the ABC last year. I actually would like it if she ended up on the ABC full time.


#8387

Yep, get Mitchell, Katich, Nannes, get rid of Flemming.
Even grab Whateley, he’s good with the crickets.


#8388

Katich and Nannes are awesome, doubt they’ll leave ABC though. I think Michael holding is still doing channel 4 in England, he would be good. Atherton goes alright too.

Bumble and boycott are great. It’s a shame we’ll almost certainly get Brayshaw, just hope the channel 7 bosses get into their ears and tell them to commentate the ■■■■■■ game, not have a chat amongst themselves


#8389

I have a feeling the female commentator I’m talking about is currently doing the eng vs Pakistan test series. Maybe it’s just triple M that turn her into a moron.


#8390

England looks in strife here against the pakis


#8391

Pakistan are a good solid Test team. Haven’t got any batsman you would consider world class but they have some real gritty players who can tough it out. They are a far more reliable team that years gone by.
