    Test XI Selection Thread

    I know it's only Bangladesh (if it goes ahead) - but he's 29yo & played 14 first class games. White ball maybe, red ball no.

    Is that D Short or M Short?

    The Ashes 2017-18

    I was quite surprised when he turned out for nsw - was he their first overseas player since Imran Khan? While he may turn into a decent bowler, at this stage his numbers speak volumes.

    The Ashes 2017-18

    Will the English leg spinner Mason Crane feature in the Ashes? Just looked up his first class stats - I hope he plays all 5 tests!

    Test XI Selection Thread

    In 4 completed Aus innings across the first 2 tests, Smith's 55 in the 2nd dig of the first test is both the highest Aus individual score, and only 1/2 century. Garbage cricket.

    The case against: 1) Almost 36yo 2) Dodgy knee 3) Over 2 years out of test cricket 4) Almost 12 months out of 1st class cricket 5) Rotten bloke Still no word from SA asking him to come back!!! I think it would be funny watching him face up for SA with that big England tattoo on his arm!!!

    This looks like KP trying to keep himself relevant & in the news? No word from anyone official in SA.........

    I'm probably being a bit unfair, although at times it does get annoying! Not just limiting it to Channel 9, here is a few commentators (past & present) I like, and don't like....... sure to ruffle a few feathers? GOOD: David Lloyd Bill Lawry Ian Chappell Tony Greig Richie Benaud Kerry O'Keefe...

    2016 Icc World T20 Discussion Thread

    Have to laugh when Samuels says he has never disrespected Warne, then says his face is plastic in the next sentence! That said, listening to Warne commentate whenever Samuels is playing, it is easy to pick up how he doesn't like him. Sums up the channel 9 commentary team at the moment - very...

    I remember reading recently about a league match in Essex that was abandoned due to a fight - not sure anyone died though - maybe a different incident?

    2016 Icc World T20 Discussion Thread

    From memory, it all started with this incident when Samuels tried to prevent D Hussey taking a second run in a BBL game years ago....... Warne is definitely no angel, but Samuels should've got rubbed out for throwing his bat.

    Huge result for NZ to beat Ind in their own backyard! Loads of media ripping into Ind suggesting they're not the masters of spin everyone thought they were. Personally I'd be putting it down to a (very) bad day at the office, but time will tell. Didn't see any coverage, though Gayle blasting...

    The Asia Cup(t20s)

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/asia-cup-2015-16/content/story/977171.html The Australian team got a lot of media coverage with their poor behaviour last week, seems it's not just an Australia problem? I can't seem to find any video of the incident?

    World T20: Tv Blackout For Australia And Nz

    What a joke - I'd be interested to know the figure Star Sports wants for the rights! Also a joke that suppose Channel 9 were to buy the rights now, they can't show it on GEM or GO!

    Hazlewood was in the wrong, pleaded guilty, copped his 15% match fee fine - this is international professional cricket, the stakes are very high. Not really that big of a deal IMO. Though if you listen to the Kiwi commentary you'd think Hazlewood took a swing at the bloke! Suggest the kiwi's...

    Is this short pitched bowling tactic Mascharenas' idea? Must admit it it more exciting to watch than the old school top of off stump plan, but it isn't going to win NZ too many test matches when the decks are so good to bat on and there are no really quick bowlers to call upon!
