Re: The Aussie Thread

points from the game VIC 1 0 0 1 3.18 SA 1 0 0 1 2.27 Can someone explain why Victoria get more points from this draw when they scored less runs? This reminds me of the ICC's ODI tiebreaker rules. Its bonus points for the first 100 overs of every first team innings only. So for the first team innin...

Re: Picturesque Cricket Grounds

It's a crap rugby ground pretending to host cricket, and still fuels the legitimate Aus criticism of NZ and its "rugby" grounds masquerading ...

Re: New Zealand Cricket Mega Thread - Long White Cloud

Excellent. Cricket will now be more accessible to NZ folks, which will hopefully translate into more interest in the country for the game. Spark is pay stream. So its not more accessible. In fact - rural NZ on data caps are right now panicing. But this will cause some serious demand to improve the ...

There is no test cricket outside of rich 3 either ;)
Well this may explain why England and Australia are 4th and 5th then. They're not really testing any of the good teams lately. And struggling with Ireland, WI and Bangladesh :P

Re: 10 underrated Cricketer of Test cricket

Why there are no BCCI underrated test players? Love to hear on what raja would say, even though it’s about BCCI bashing. ;) Because the BCCI is part of the Rich 3.
