Remember that now part of his BBL contract.

Not as bad as Vettori though and wouldn't surprise me if McCullum has a few days off too.

Do yous think the likes of David Hussey, Brad Hodge, Brad Hogg etc are still playing because they aren't content with what they achieved in there careers?

Pisses me off, just let the young ones have a go.

Chris Lynn timed it beautifully. :grin:

he'll play T20 tournaments for a few years now, his still fairly young, his only 35. "retired" ( :lol: ) fairly young.

Had a shocker his first game though. Looked shit every ball of his 6 ball duck then dropped the match in the 2nd last game, absolute sitter.

Chris Lynn said yesterday his bats come and he cuts an inch off the top and bottom off the bat to make them light and they keep the same power.

Before taking an axe to Shaun Tait for a 121m six that went over the grandstand at the Gabba on Friday, Lynn turned amateur carpenter and took a saw to his own bats.

Lynn loved the power he could gain through his Gray-Nicolls blades but it troubled him that they were slightly too heavy to gain the bat speed he wanted.

That left him with the challenge of keeping as much wood as he could around the sweet spot while somehow making the bat lighter.

Maxwell has pointed out that no one has a average of 30 in ODIs and as high a strike rate as him in the history of the game in his latest interview

Haha every time he does something good he talks himself up in the media or does a long interview :lol:

& add another excuse to his list


It began with a burst, leading the Stars and then Australia’s ODI line-up to victories with controlled innings, and then hit a “speed hump” in New Zealand.

"I had a couple of indifferent dismissals — a chop-on and a one-handed catch — and unfortunately that can just turn the tables,” he said.

“That’s how fickle the game can be. I felt I was in good nick at that stage and those 50-50s were going against me.”

“I’d like to be remembered as someone who changed the way one-day batting was perceived,” he said.

“Having limited opportunities in Test cricket, I still think I’ve had an impact on one-day cricket.

"If you look at my strike-rate compared to games played and runs scored, there’s not many who have struck higher and averaged around 30.

“To manipulate fields the way I have in one-day cricket and won internationals, I think that would be the legacy I’ve left if I finished my career now.

“But there’s still a lot of unfinished business. I still think my average will go up and my strike-rate will stay the same.
