Cricket Part II


#8552

I’ve never really seen it with him tbh. I just find him a bit meh; and not meh in like a ‘Rhino’ Harris kind of way


#8553

Cricket Australia are sure pushing the AFL as the dumbest sporting organisation in Australia. They have now decided that the domestic 50 over competition will revert to 6 teams and all of them will make the finals…

Awesome way of putting players under pressure to perform to make finals.


#8554

Oh how I long for a return to the halcyon days of seeing who defied the odds and missed the finals when we had 14 teams and a final 8.


#8555

So why do they even have finals?
All they are doing is having two seasons, one after the other, and whoever wins season two is king of the sandpit. Just stupid.


#8556

Surprise!

1 game ban for Chandimal for ball tampering.

More fool to CA for the ridiculous over the top bans for our players.


#8557

Oz 0-66 off 11.2 Head 47 and Finch 18

At least 3 runs per over below par.


#8558

Now they’ve gotten themselves in, they need to capitalise in the back end; no point scoring @5.5 then throwing your wicket away as you try to accelerate, which has been our, problem of late.


#8559

Aaron Finch opening. Novel concept.


#8560

Australia score 310 with centuries to Finch and Marsh but England look like they’ll win this one. Currently, need 91 from 83 with 7 still in the shed


#8561

The days are gone where you can afford to have both your openers score @ a run a ball, and then not cash in.

Does anyone know why Maxwell didn’t play, yet we played with 2 keepers?


#8562

Injured I believe


#8563

I’d be pretty miffed if he was dropped, with Agar at 5 the batting lineup looks mighty thin.


#8564

Hamstring issues I believe. He had some issues before the 3rd which didn’t improve.


#8565

Shoulder


#8566

Ok, he had hamstring tightness before the 3rd though.


#8567

That he did.


#8568

He hurt his shoulder when he was doing some stretching exercises for his tight hammies

@Alan_Noonan_10 Michael Slater has joined the Seven commentary team. I know you’ll be delighted. :wink:
