In other words you are full of shit, making pointless statements that you can't support with facts or reason just to aggravate other forum members.  I think that makes you a troll doesn't it ?

Lighten up Tonto.

We've had a serial troll (your words) here who constantly puts down anything NSW / Sydney on the forum (and still does) you didn't pipe up then? So it's pretty funny imho when a little is thrown back at the 'sporting capital' and you blokes prickle up.

Exhibit A - totally off topic & irrelevant   :yes:


Sydney stuck in time warp

SYDNEY was one of the first world capitals to ring in 2019 but when “Happy New Year 2018” was projected onto the Harbour Bridge revellers were left feeling behind the times.

About one million people crowded the harbour to watch the fireworks and light show.

“We just laughed about it … these things happen,” council’s major event executive producer Anna McInerney said.

 :whistle:

As for facts, you skip over the capacity % I provided? Why? because they debunked your silly comparison  ;) Simple fact, it was ordinary attendance in Melb so instead of slagging others who point it out, why not discuss the reasons?

Like I said - it says a lot about the state of Australian cricket in general.

Selectors got it half right. Hopefully that’s the last we see of MItch for 3 or 4 years in the test arena.
He has a lot of work to do on his game. Technically and mentally

Seems strange that Labuschagne will be batting at #3.  :chin:
Strange he should be bowling.  One over for 12 runs.  Lucky they got rid of Mitchell Marsh.  It would have taken him 50 overs to get that result.

33k today at the cricket today. Not bad for a non Ashes series in Sydney . Will be interesting to see the aggregate crowd will be after the Ashes last year. I think 120k will be a good target.

Labuschagne returns 0 for 25 off 4 overs going at 6.25 an over.


Is this a 20/20 game?


Tell me what the selectors got right Wily.

They dumped a proven failure. A bloke who cant bat or bowl at test level despite plenty of chances.
You really are thick aren't you  :lol:

Labuschagne  bowled well in the UAE. Is he the answer ot our problems? :chin: I don't know but only an idiot like you would hang him on todays efforts
He's already got 7 test wickets @ 22 which shits all over your bum chum

Just settle back and accept your bloke is gonski until he rogers a selector again :bulb:

They dumped a bloke, dumbarse, who was roundly acclaimed as our second best bowler in the last test.


He took 0/51 in 26 overs.  Your replacement has 0/25 off 4 overs.  Boy oh boy. 


You could pick someone out of the crowd to match those figures. 


Even a dumb prick like you.

Oh well, I’ll live with that. Just dont go slashing your wrists over little Mitch.
He’ll be back in one day when he learns to play, no doubt.

As to the crusty old  Shaunie, the clocks ticking.  I suggest you tune in to this test and pray for him. I suspect they’ll give him a chance against the weak lankans in a few weeks but not if he goes cheap this test

No chance of Marsh getting to bat.  The Indians look set to bat for five days.


Labuschagne on fire with 0/67.

Can this be true? If so we are becoming a rabble. Thank god we are playing the Lankans who are going even worse at the moment.

Best chance for an Aussie 100 is today. Conditions are good and Indian bowlers are going through the motions as weather may have some impact before the end of the test. They are playing for a draw.

Harris has surely cemented his spot as Warners opening partner on his return.

Good of Usman to open in our selectors ignorance but hope he drops down to #4 or 5 on Smiths return

Wonder what excuse the sycophant will come up with to Shaunie knicking off to a nude nut like that.
Thankfully, that must spell the end to his test career

Oh, and the youngster is looking the goods :clap2:

Thanks Bubba.

100k so far is good for a non Ashes test.

He got a very good ball from Jadeja that pitched on a good length and turned.


Would have got most out although some, like Khawaja, might not have been good enough to nick it.


Speaking of nicks, did you see Khawaja's nick through to the keeper on nought?  Talk about useless.


The youngster took 0 for 76 off just 16 overs.   Going for nearly 5 an over and no wickets.  Terrific performance. 


Maybe someone dared him to take as many wickets as you have brain cells.

A good ball.  :lol:  Every commentator declared it a straight ball doing zilch. The Indian guy on ch7 even laughed about how bad a shot it was :clap2:
You reckon Warnie bowled it you wacko.  You’ve clearly never been a cricketer  :bulb:
Bye bye Shaunie

Another fascinating bit of revisionism of a career after replacing some greats.

Very good article. Spot on in its contention. He was slaughtered by the system

It was a very good ball and in fact Jadeja has bowled extremely well this series. 


It pitched on a good length and it turned.  It didn't turn sideways.  Just enough to get the edge. 


Khawaja on the other hand (and you've shied neatly away from it  :yes: ) was dropped before he had even scored.


Instead of taking his good fortune and batting for the team, he slogged across the line of the ball and hit it straight to mid on.


He's scored less than Marsh this series but no-one is talking about him being dropped.


Three letters.  NSW. 


If he were from WA he'd had been dropped by now.
