Magnificent innings by West Aussie Coulter-Nile.


Time to drop Khawaja (13) and bring in another one.


S Marsh.

What we learned from the India game.


Finch better make some runs.  S Marsh should replace him. 


Warner isn't a "carry your bat" player.  He needs to get amongst it or bugger off.


Maxwell has no brains.  He was actually batting quite well and then played a completely unneccessary shot to get out.


Right when we needed him to keep his wicket.  It aint 20/20 Glenno. 


Stoinis?  Don't think so.  Needs to make runs and he just hasn't.  His bowling isn't good enough to not make runs too.


Coulter-Nile.  Not sure.  One big score, then very ordinary. 


Carey.  Is this guy the next superstar?  Very impressive in both temperament and execution.


Needs to bat further up the order.  His wicket keeping is good too.




I think we only need one allrounder.  We need Lyon to play.  And probably Jason Behrendorff.

Obviously you don't follow the game very closely Mohammad.


Kholi is an Indian and we can't pick him.   Yet.


You may see him driving Uber soon in an effort to get Aussie citizenship.

Aussies can afford to lose a couple of games and waltz into the semis.

They can’t afford any washouts though.

The top 3 batsmen look ok while others are shaky. Starc had a shocker against India.

Statement from ICC CEO David Richardson on World Cup reserve days
by International Cricket Council & Cricket World  Tuesday 11 June 2019
at: https://www.cricketworld.com/statement-from-icc-ceo-david-richardson-on-world-cup-reserve-days/56940.htm

Factoring in a reserve day for every match at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup would significantly increase the length of the tournament and practically would be extremely complex to deliver.

 It would impact pitch preparation, team recovery and travel days, accommodation and venue availability, tournament staffing, volunteer and match officials availability, broadcast logistics and very importantly the spectators who in some instances have travelled hours to be at the game. There is also no guarantee that the reserve day would be free from rain either.

 Up to 1200 people are on site to deliver a match and everything associated with it including getting it broadcast and a proportion of them are moving around the country so reserve days in the group stage would require a significant uplift in the number of staff. We have reserve days factored in for the knock-out stages, knowing that over the course of 45 group games we should play the large majority.
 This is extremely unseasonable weather. In the last couple of days we have experienced more than twice the average monthly rainfall for June which is usually the third driest month in the UK. In 2018 there was just 2mm of rain in June but the last 24 hours alone has seen around 100mm fall in the south-east of England.

 When a match is affected by weather conditions, the venue team work closely with Match Officials and Ground Staff to ensure that we have the best possible opportunity to play cricket, even if it is a reduced overs game. ]We also work to keep fans in the stadium, or those travelling to the game, as up-to-date as possible with any information we have, either through public announcements or on our social media channels.[/u]

SO A WASHOUT IS GOOD FOR THE FANS BUT A RESERVE DAY IS NOT?

Does anyone know what brand of chewing gum Aaron Finch chews or is it a bubble gum? Surely whatever it it is, they should get him to endorse the brand as he is killing them !!!

Another Victorian cricketer to brighten up the game of cricket . :no1:

The memory of Ken Mackay and Lindsay Kline holding on to force a draw against the West indies in that 1960/61 series still sticks in my mind. The best Test Series of all time.

Yes WOD, on that statement FZ might have to give it a bit of rethought. Marsh might be lucky to retain his place in the side, let alone replace Finch.

The First Test, the tied Test, is the one which gets the attention but it was the Fourth Test, the drawn Adelaide Test, which was the most nerve-wracking  :sweat:, the most exciting.

And they say drawn tests are boring...…………..   :no:

The test at the MCG in that series attracted the world record one day attendance of 90,800. I went that day and lined up at 8 am in the morning, unheard of then and since, in those days there was no reserved seating..."first in, first served ".

I was too young for that 60-61 series and envious later as a kid of those who saw or listened to it. The first one I remember was 1962-63 and I still recall the names of the players in that series more clearly than I recall the names of half my relatives.

The 68-69 and 75-76 Windies tours were entertaining as well. They had superb cricketers. I watched Rohan Kanhai when he played in Tasmania in the late 60s and, even then, he was batting in a different league to the locals.

Political Correctness gone mad. What with the AFL employing  Behavioral Awareness Officers to patrol the crowds at AFL games I noticed at the ICC World Cup there is  a Club Safety Steward to do something similar.

Welcome to the brave new PC world. 


Any Indian tried to tell me what to do I'd tell him to piss off back to Mumbai.

As usual a retort overpowered with racism, a gross lack of any intellectual matter and basically  (to use the vernacular ) the musings of a dummy.

They're all Indians in 'security.'   Everywhere.


Only dumbarses here are you two. 


I'm surrounded by them at work.  Indians take over industries and only employ their own.


And they're all dodgy as hell.  THe amount of fleecing of the public in taxis by these Punjabi's has been unbelievable.


And how would I know Gunbower, you moron?


Because my frigging customers tell me.  And they tell every other non-Indian taxi driver too. 


It's been an avalanche of overcharging since Punjabi's worked out that the taxi industry was a shortcut


to permanent residency via a loophole. 


Call me a racist you fking moron. 


They're the ones doing the crime.  I'm just the messenger.


Unfortunately some leftard morons don't like the message. 


So look at anything that requires 'security' and you'll find an oversupply of Indians. 


I suppose noticing that is racist too? 


And they're out there telling Aussies how to behave at a footy match.


Like I said.  Fk off back to Mumbai and take your mates with you.
