Cricket Part III


#8452

“Shot”


#8453

No. He shouldn’t.
Really only one good game before XMas and this one, not enough.

Bird and Boland have 45 wickets each at 22 & 20 respectively, should be at the top of the list by a long, long way.


#8454

I assume West is a bowler, because if he is a batsmen he should be put into the cannon.


#8455

Yeah.
Young leftie quick, and he looked pretty lively too.
2nd Shield game so very early days but looks like he has something to work with.


#8456

So Starc’s got competition.


#8457

Everyone see this catch. Most insane thing I’ve seen since John Dysons catch way back when.


#8458

3rd test between NZ and Bangladesh called off.

I keep thinking of Stephen Fleming when their hotel got bombed in Pakistan and he had to do a press conference and he described the scene. Horrible.


#8459

Injury free Pattinson is a world class bowler. If he’s injury free and bowling full pace he should be on the plane to England.


#8460

At this point injury-free-Pattinson is the Aussie Cricketing equivalent of a unicorn


#8461

Like injury-free-Cummins.


#8462

Pattinson 3 out of 4 in SA’s 4/113

Jake Lehmann has made a lot of ducks this season. Vics have dropped White and ‘rested’ Boland, bringing back Fekete and Siddle.


#8463

Siddle gets Brad Davis, who has done time in a Turkish prison, for 23.
Head on 29 and Harry Nielsen with his favourite loneliest number.

Nielsen caught behind off Siddle for 2. 6/140

NSW 3/160 vs Tas, both openers making sixties and Patterson 14.

And WA 3/53, Marsh out for 2 and Bancroft 4. Neser 3/7.


#8464

Pattinson is about 3000x the bowler of Bird or Scotty Boland. But he’s probably not had enough cricket to force himself onto the plane.


#8465

Is Tremain injured?


#8466

Nope. He’s playing.


#8467

Harris out right on stumps. Vics 1/28 chasing 260.


#8468

All fell over after that, all out 138.
Neser 5/15 off 15 overs.
QLD 3/28 in reply.
Must have a wedding on Friday.


#8469

Labuschagne 2 and Renshaw 1 out in a score of 3/28 chasing 138.


#8470

It looks like no-one told the groundskeepers that it’s still cricket season.

Edit. Or no one told the batsmen


#8471

Are they still using Dukes?

There might be a few home teams creating ‘result pitches’ in a bid to make the final.
