Cricket Part II


#1744

I wouldn’t write off Maddinson just yet - he is only 25 and was done no favours by the selectors who picked him soley on “promise” when he was out of form. Totallly mesesed with his head and his season spiraled into an absolute nightmare. He’s had one chance, whereas Marsh…


#1745

Got a terrible technique suited only to limited overs.


#1746

Being a war veteran doesn’t exclude you from being a tool


#1747

I think this is great.


#1748

I couldn’t stomach seeing S.Marsh in a Baggy Green again. At 34 he’s had more than enough opportunities. I’d rather Cal Ferguson get another crack at it. One Test is not enough of a sample size to see if he could cut it. Marsh has had so many chances and never cemented his spot…


#1749

The problem was with the selectors. Everyone knows that Marsh is brilliant first test back then does nothing for the next few. So they should bring him in for one game, drop him, then bring him in, drop him, then bring him in.


#1750

Patto ruled out of summer cricket- stress fractures in the back.
I think he’s done.


#1751

Think Pattersen needs to take 2 years away from cricket - First year is no sport at all and year two is a slow build up.


#1752

Patto will get up to too much mischief if he does. You think Stringer has problems…


#1753

Maddison is garbage in the long form. How he got selected for a test, is a mystery for mine.
His 3 tests are possibly the worst in recent memory for an Australian batsman on debut. Couldn’t possibly considered anytime soon without a major rework of his technique.


#1754

Shame, a career ruined by injury.


#1755

Pretty obvious how he got a gig! Smith and Clarke big fans, no doubt due to the colour of his cap.

On the latest picture of him on the Oz cricket site, he looks like he’s going around in a disguise…big glasses and moustache.


#1756

Stokes unlikely to tour Australia, Finn added to squad


#1757

I can’t see how he can participate in the Ashes even if they haven’t completely ruled him out. The footage is so damning and it would send a very poor message if he were to play. The ECB are obviously desperate for him to play and are keeping their options open but they have nowhere to go. He simply can’t play.


#1758

Smith heading home from India due to injury.


#1759

Ferg with 169 in the JLT Cup today.
Playing on some postage stamp sized ovals, some of the scores are a joke


#1760

Will Sutherland 3/11 off 4.2 for the Vics against NSW

6/87

Just went straight through Starc.


#1761

And Siddle has bowled 6 overs for 3 runs! Up to Commins and Starc to get the Blues out of their hole with both bat and ball you’d imagine. They are capable. But it’s not looking good for them.


#1762

Ahmed picked up 3 quick ones. Now 9/113


#1763

Vic win on D/L after match abandoned due to dangerous wicket.
'dem quality grounds in NSW.
