Cricket Part IV


#1881

Not good

Worse for Handscombe coming in at 4, just looked useless.

If we can somehow scrounge our way through Wade surely has to play


#1882

He’s not a good boy. We can’t pick players on performance, they must be fine upstanding citizens. Can’t bat but he makes a nice cup of tea…

Dumb cricket

Australiaington


#1886

Great spell from Rashid. Never seen him turn it that well before.


#1887

Remind me why Wade was not picked?


#1888

Why the hell is a number 8 trying the late cut?
Just get your body behind it, play straight and let Smith do the dirty work


#1889

Hope Smith gets his hundred, just needs someone too stick in with him.


#1890

Because it was ridiculous to drop Maxwell the match winner.
I read it in here earlier today.


#1891

Going back a little, has Hanacombe done recently to get the nod above Wade in am ODI?

Farking go Smith.


#1892

Maxwell’s not the problem tonight, have a good look at the scorecard


#1893

WOAKES - ROOT - STOKES, … lel.

Would that be a 3some, … or just a 2some?? :smirk:

Edit; (Ok, … that’s enough Bourbon for you now BSD …)


#1894

If our bottom 3 collectively can make say 30 from 40 and Smith stays in we can still post a decent (enough) total imo


#1895

Agree. Hopefully Stark can go berserk late


#1896

Looked at that scoreboard more than enough.

Like the rest of the scoreboards throughout the tournament in no way shape or form do I see a semblance of

Maxwell - match wining performance.


#1897

He is not the main problem but he is a problem. Had to hide the useless tool at 7 because he is a liability batting higher. I said before the tournament started that our weak middle order would be our downfall and it’s proven to be true. We haven’t got the order or mix correct all tournament


#1898

Mmm, … just trying to remember when it was that Lyon hung around for that last wicket big score, … and how long it’s been since he’s done similar. Still has stick around ability no??


#1899

With only 8 overs remaining you would hope that our tail is only facing 15-20 balls tops and Smith is facing the rest


#1900

A run a ball here gets us to 230
