I’m just joking with you how you always wish both sides good luck. Others only wish their own team or their favourite team the luck.

I admire your spirit of cricket :)

Mike will be spitting chips over the selection of this PMX1 to take on England tonite.. Mate I have to admit you have a point. Far too many from south of the border for mine too. Neville, Henriques, Patterson, Sandhu etc etc.... Where is Ben McDermott, Tom Cooper, Marcus Harris, Michael Neser or Fawad Ahmed? CA almost has an orgasm over its beloved BBL.. this message they are sending is why take wickets or score runs when it will lead to nothing.

PMX1 with a paltry total of 136. England should do this on her head.

Willey takes Lyon to the cleaners. Maybe this will stop calls for Lyon to play in our short format teams.

First blood to the Aussies. Stanlake could be added to the Saffer tour squad on that showing. Then again T20 is not Test cricket.

Should have read your post first. His pace and ability to get lift from a good length would be ideal for Saffer decks. He is injury prone tho..so that has to be taken into consideration.

Only ten minutes or so until the game starts. I've got my coffee on the go, a bit of CricForum, and it's frosty cold outside on my day off. Chores can wait a bit :D

It was ten minutes until the program started. I appreciate the actual game didn’t start until about half past or quarter to nine

Malan going well again. Really has stepped up & taken his chance at the top level & showed that he can adapt his game. BTW.....Toby Roland Jones & Jamie Porter both fit again & bowling for England Lions in the West Indies warm up match. Jennings got a hundred but Hameed two failures. Sorry for going a bit off piste.

England going okay but their bowling is the weaker suite hence why they have to hit such big totals.

There was a stat on tv about how they have the worst bowling economy rates in all international t20 cricket in the early overs

England batting now falling apart. Their bowling won’t be able to protect a sub-150 score. Well played Australia

That is Maxwell at his best. Had his share of luck..lives on 42 and 61. I like this side. Australia should take it to the WC. Also we should be wearing this strip for all limited overs internationals in my view.

Something to do with attaining full body maturity at about age 24. Billy is at the end of a long queue of injury prone young uber quicks in the past decade.
Hopefully he has come out the other side like most of the the others.

Talking about maturity hail the new Maxwell.

Nah it was the Big Show. Boycs is just being dry.
Elite honesty:
At the toss Faf said to Finch that you lads can bat - Finch replied "no, no we can't-we really can't".

I hate the fact that cricketers all over are sporting beards.Sporting a beard is not compulsory in Islam but the devout prefer to keep one.

But I don't understand why Christians and Hindus are sporting beards .It's just become like a fashion statement, just that it does not look good on the player.

Kohli, Jadeja for example.The beard does not suit them at all.

Bell bottom pants in the 1970's was much worse imo.

Team India in particular do seem to love a beard under Kohli, though. But I agree that beards do appear more fashionable globally than 10 years ago.

But I don't understand why Christians and Hindus are sporting beards .It's just become like a fashion statement, just that it does not look good on the player.

Kohli, Jadeja for example.The beard does not suit them at all.


Bell bottom pants in the 1970's was much worse imo.

Team India in particular do seem to love a beard under Kohli, though. But I agree that beards do appear more fashionable globally than 10 years ago.

Nah it was the Big Show. Boycs is just being dry.

The Big Show returned tonite. He is devastating when on song. Took Rashid to the cleaners. All the same I was impressed by Agar. Wanna see him with the willow in hand too.
