Cricket Part III


#8752

Khawaja going at a rapid pace of 7 runs from 19 balls.


#8753

Slow wicket. Looks like a road but average 1st innings score is only 225 so it clearly doesn’t come into the bat and scoring is hard.


#8754

Fich was at a run a ball 2 overs or so ago. Kwacker surely needs to lif his pace to remain in the OD squad.

Edit: I haven’t really kept up with his figures since the Aus series, but he’s just as slow now as he was then, … so …


#8755

Pitch looks like it is made of clay


#8756

Finch is out plumb LBW for 39


#8757

Great, the two slowest batsmen in together at the same time: Khawja 19 from 36, Smarsh 1 from 9


#8758

SMarsh gawn stumped.

Was just about to post how many times I look at him in a helmet and think it’s Brett Lee.


#8759

Fingers crossed Marsh fails in the 5th ODI and his spot is given to Smith


#8760

Stoinis gone for 2.

4 down.


#8761

Super knock from Maxwell. The contribution from Khawaja was super important in getting a total of close to 280.


#8762

yet people keep on knocking uzzie but this series and in india g=has been consistent. then again they might want blazers in and all out for 70 in 50 balls


#8763

It feels like we have made an active decision that we aren’t going to win the World Cup making scores of 350. Therefore we are going to back our bowlers to do a job and restrict teams to under 300 and our batsmen to make or chase enough. Personally I don’t mind it as we didn’t look capable of making the huge scores England in particular have been making.


#8764

English grounds are a lot smaller as well, so it will be harder to defend sub-300 totals. I’m happy we have had an upturn in form with the WC approaching.


#8765

Pucovski gets another 50


#8766

Blocker gives Gotch out lbw.

They seem prepared to give lb’s that might hit leg stump these days. I thought it was missing leg.


#8767

Pucovski lbw to Abbott for 51.

I don’t think that was missing leg.


#8768

Gotch one wasn’t hitting the stumps. Pucovski one was.


#8769

White lbw to O’Keeffe for 36. Sweeping…pretty plumb.

351 in front.


#8770

Thank god it’s an Ashes and World Cup year.


#8771

If the rain stays away this will be over before tea. Ball hooping around everywhere
