Cricket Part II


#1864

Mini Boof shooting right up in contention for the no.6

I reckon he should be given the chance. Can counterattack and is a good age.


#1865

Vics 3-160 with Handscomb about 60 and Finch 9.
Maxwell out for 64 lbw to Mennie…looked a fair bit legside to me. No doubt Hawkeye would have had it cannoning into the very edge of leg stump. Mennie all 3.

WA 0-179 with Bancroft 84 and S Marsh 91

Marsh out for 91, Cartwright made a pair
Bancroft still to be dismissed in the game on 85

Handscomb out for 58, Finch and Christian on 32 and 24
4/206


#1866

2 hatricks in the game for Starc!
NSW win


#1867

He’s done the Sorbent and cleaned up the tail.

Bowlers of his type can so often make love Greek style and f**k up the tail.


#1868

All six wickets were around the wicket with either a yorker or a fuller ball. They know what’s coming but are powerless to stop it.

Good win by NSW, they need to cash in whilst the Oz reps are around and two outrights to start the season is obviously ideal.


#1869

England second innings falling apart. Just lost 4 / 3.

You can watch it live online.


#1870

Milenko tearing them up. Poms 7-125


#1871

Does it say more about M Starc or WA?

WA’s got all rounders from #3. Cartwright (albeit green) seems a legit top order bat, but MMarsh, Turner, Agar, Stoinis?

I will never understand this fascination with picking all rounders, as well as just as many tail enders as you normally would. Defeats the purpose.


#1872

Most fail the litmus test of being good enough to be picked solely in either discipline. The real all-rounders are a captain’s best asset, which is why England are leaving the door open for Stokes. If it were anybody else they would have already been ruled out.


#1873

Their middle order is meant to be their real strength as well. I realise no Stokes and Ali but I’m still taking it as a good sign for Australia.


#1874

Just checked the score. Cricket aust xi are 7-51 in the chase. Ball must be moving all over the place, not a great advert for the pink ball game


#1875

The side they had in had 3 full time bats - coming in at 2, 6 and 7, Bancroft kept and opened the batting, 4 full time quicks and 3 all rounders.

Not sure what Mitch Marsh did to get the captaincy, but I’d guess he gets a selector’s spot with it. He really needs to be told he’s got the potential to be quite good as a bowler who bats a bit - not the other way around.


#1876

Ellyse Perry has scored a double century not out in the Ashes test match.


#1877

Super effort, not to mention opening the bowling with a 3 fa in the first dig.


#1878

The best cricketer, male or female, in the world.


#1879

NSW go into the match against QLD without the Oz pace trio and have QLD 4/111 - Renshaw (16) fails to pass 50 for the fifth time this season and his form is starting to become a worry, Khawaja on 47*.

Tassie stinking up the joint as usual and
Wade fails again with 5 whilst trying to pull Siddle through mid-wicket only to have his furniture disturbed.


#1880

Renshaw is a big worry, his confidence has fallen to drastic levels.


#1881

Sorry to see your absence didn’t endow you with any sense, pazza.


#1882

Best in Women’s cricket by a mile I’ll agree on but best in World cricket is taking it too far


#1883

Bancroft in the runs again, Langer still thinks he could come in at Renshaws expense
