  1. Yikes ...... Matt Renshaw just took SA apart in the one-dayer. 156 not out, off 109 balls, 15 fours and 5 sixes. Perhaps he's keen again to get back in the Test side. Hope he makes it as he's a good opener and a fine first slip. Cheers J
  2. Didn't realise that "netizen" was a word. Live and learn ! Cheers J
  3. With his first ball in English tests no less. Gatting’s reaction is priceless.
  4. Seems like Cricket Australia was aware of the situation when it happened, but decided that all was OK. Now it isn't ....... because the details have been published ???? Doesn't look too great for Cricket Australia ....... resignations maybe ? Yes I'm kidding, of course the CA officials won't resign. Situation is pretty dirty. Smith to captain for the Ashes is my guess. Cheers J
  5. Cat among the pigeons time !!! Now the question will be ........ does he still get picked as Australia's best keeper ?? I would take the opportunity to recruit a new keeper, Inglis? Carey? , and I would also give Smith the captaincy for the Ashes series. Cheers J
  6. Fair dinkum, I think if I read " reached out to " instead of "contacted" once more, I'll be physically sick. Newspaper writers/editors are the worst culprits. I can only imagine that they are teenagers these days. Cheers J
  7. Not impressed with Usman named in the squad. Has performed just once for Australia, when in NZ. Crap fielder. The rest pretty much as expected. Very pleased to see that Matt Renshaw is back in the A side. Cheers J
  8. And we thought we'd left the colonial era behind !! Cheers J
  9. Well, the Aussies, written off by most at the start of the tournament, have won the cup for the first time, frustrating the Kiwis yet again. Mitch Marsh had a very good tournament ( another test trial maybe ?) , and mostly the good test players keeping everything going. Amazing how the "best" players are still the best players, as long as they are not mucked around with rests and changes all the time. Hopefully Australian cricket has moved on from the woke efforts of the last few years, and will just do the simple but best process of picking the 12 best players ......... and let them decide when they need a "rest". Finch had a pretty ordinary series ..... maybe will have some proving to do. Didn't see any games, so I really don't know how his captaincy affected anything. The shorter games are pretty well mapped out beforehand these days. Now for the Poms !!!!! Cheers J
  10. " The Big Show" now has 36 runs from 6 innings .......... Australia"s test cricketers showing once again that you can't replace "class". The Kiwis will be tough ....... maybe Maxie can finally shine in the final ???? Cheers J
  11. Well thank goodness for that, after all the media hype over Usman's form lately. Now there's one place still to be filled. Bit of talk about Mitch Marsh ....... could do worse I guess. He can be pretty handy with bat and ball and a decent fielder. Cheers J
  12. Kiwis dump the Poms from the cup. They're always tough. Cheers J
  13. Yes, somehow it is not just straightforward. Cheers J
  14. Have noticed that EB hasn’t shown up in the new platform. What happened, anyone know? Cheers J
  15. Musing on the World Cup. Yet again the “Big Show” hasn’t produced after all the media hype. He has one, maybe two matches to “show” . His only saving grace is his excellent fielding, which is very important, and his generally decent bowling. The regular test match stars have produced for Australia. I wonder if Langer can resist changing the winning team ?? He loves to tinker and I fear his dodgy decisions. I don’t think that the Pakis will be looking forward to our fast bowlers, so I’ll be filled with horror if they dump one of our quicks in favour of a spinner who the Pakis will eat for breakfast. Go the Aussies ! Cheers J
