Cricket Part II


#8452

thanks for that. have tried checking channels. i can now sit back and enjoy he night until we collapse or something


#8453

Should be over by 11:45


#8454

Or you can watch magic mike on go! At 9.30. Tough choice


#8455

Neser to debut.


#8456

He looks the second biggest pie-chucker (after Herath) in world cricket, but Moeen has 3/13 off 5. Aus 4/72 off 17…Stoinis and Maxwell batting.


#8457

Moeen is so ■■■■. Embarrassing that we have gifted him 3 poles not through good bowling in his behalf, but 3 very ordinary pieces of batting. Stoinis caught behind off Rashid, 4/5 wickets falling to spin. Australia 5/90.


#8458

Can just see what’s going to happen; Maxwell is going to go out playing a very Maxwell shot and then everyone is going to blame him for the loss. This despite the fact that he came in for 3 for bugger all

or he’ll score a fighting century and be hailed a hero


#8459

In tests Ali is an awful bowler, in limited overs he is pretty decent- just keeps it basic and tight and also picks up the odd wicket.


#8460

Langer begins his tenure with a loss. Morgan and Root partnership killed the contest.


#8461

Gee we picked a weak team, is that the vest we have available now?


#8462

We picked who was available and not injured.


#8463

Yes, especially given England auto qualify as hosts

“”GET YOUR SANDPAPER!" bellowed a handful of volunteers as they handed out small yellow sheets - one part viral marketing to two parts “stick it up 'em”. Each a meme come to life. Each recipient a retweet. They were waving them outside the Beehive pub, like referees cautioning the wind, fervently when an Australian jersey or anything else in canary yellow was spotted. Just before entering the ground by the Alec Stewart Gates, an A4 size card with Steve Smith’s agony-ridden face under which the caption read “We’re only here for the tears.” Most of them were.”

We are gonna cop shitt for years to come, get used to it.

I haven’t been back to NZ for 20 years, but they were still talking about the underarm incident then & this is 100 times worse.


#8466

It’ll be just like how Australians can’t let the whole Cronje thing go, right?


#8467

Who? :grinning:


#8468

It will be interesting to see how long the comments last. Mohammad Amir went to jail for match fixing in England and this year there was hardly a peep from the crowd. This was his second tour back.


#8469

Pakistan aren’t tall poppies though

CRICKET Australia is closing in on a new deal for the radio media rights and it looks like tradition could be taking a back seat.

After enjoying an 80-year partnership, it has been reported CA could be set to exclude the ABC from the broadcast rights, according to Wide World of Sports.

Craig Hutchinson’s Crocmedia company is believed to be the favourite to claim the rights with Macquarie Media also atop the list.
