    Jofra Archer's behaviour

    Give him a break. he is just a kid and not knowing how to handle the situation is more a reflection on English cricket culture than it is on Jofra. He can bowl though he is facing some truth telling in this test

    Ball Tampering

    I see the high and almighty comments are still coming on this subject from the culpable media and wise former cricketers like Warne and Clarke. Two enquiries but the CEO seems to think he is immune, and what was that? Micheal Clarke intermating he will make a come back, really? Clarke lead a...

    Ball Tampering

    Hey thought everyone had deserted this site. Well i tend to agree. the whole issue is becoming tiresome. Tend to feel that the right thing has been done but those that are crying the hardest (Cricket SA, the media and politicians) are the very ones that are not getting the lesson from the quick...

    Ball Tampering

    https://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/not-what-it-seams-a-brief-history-of-ball-tampering-20180325-p4z645.html In the current atmosphere of the worst sort of cheating (pre-meditated) the whole ball tampering issue has some history. The link is to a list of recent issues but really is it the end...

    Test XI Selection Thread

    Well the panic button has been well and truly pressed. Some of these changes are as untested as the ones they dropped. Totally disagree with dropping Neville. Wade was moved on in the first place because he was so ordinary behind the stumps, has that changed suddenly? Good Khawaja is still there...

    Test XI Selection Thread

    Well seems i could not have been more wrong. The team is at that crisis point like the team back in the eighties when Kim Hughes was captain. The questions are different but still as difficult as they were then. The batsmen seem to have lost confidence to do the job. I think the line up is ok...

    Test XI Selection Thread

    Seems to be too many questionable decisions being made with the selectors and within the team. Will be a long hard summer but i am sure the team can dig in and get things going again. Seems that any trip to the subcontinent takes a heavy toll on the team and its performance for months after. I...

    2016 Icc World T20 Squads, Ladders & Results Thread

    i wish some minor never heard of country would come out of nowhere and win it. It would serve two purposes, it would be good for the expansion of the game and it would prove T20 is rubbish.

    Well a two one win to Australia. not the most exciting series

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    stirring a bit but certainly not off the mark. A typical POMMY you would expect no less than the desperate need to remind us they hold the ashes. I don't fancy their chances of retaining it and the real test will come when we next tour the UK. Then when they are flogged Australia can claim...

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    That's a bit rough. It was clear in the replay that there was a small hotspot. Either the tech is in or out. The issue is more that this is not what the referral system was meant to be about. It was to remove the howler. That was no howler that was a tough but good decision. He had a doubt so...

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    Slow innings from Burns, clearly was struggling but that only shows how determined he was. It was a very important innings in the context of the game so he must be feeling very happy with his effort.

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    Well shaping up as a good test with the first innings going to be not to far apart so long as the Kiwi's don't let Voges and the tail get away. Only day two long way and a result for sure

    Not sure with they way the first test went that it will help the Kiwi's.

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    Well the Aussies wrapped that up neatly. Will look for some fight in the next test but Australia will be No1 test team with a draw or win.

    Shane Warne Interview

    Geeze Warnie? what a total burke. Really the IQ of a river pebble this one. It is amazing he could even turn a ball as that requires enough brain capacity to remove his foot from his mouth first. I too have never been a massive Steve Waugh fan, thought he was a dictator but he was smart tough...

    Wish i could watch the test, don't have fox and refuse to get it. Seems to be a good game for the Aussies and McCullum getting out at the end of the day will hurt NZ tomorrow

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    didn't see it live only a long replay and it didn't seem they had appealed untill they saw the big screen but i suppose a muffled grunt is an appeal.

    Australia In New Zealand 16

    Well not sure you quite get it. We will start with Smith, he will be a good captain but has much to learn tactically. The decision was right it was off the foot and it was out, but clearly the appeal was only made due to the big screen replay. Bad sportsmanship, never mind NZ will never forgive...
