Aust v SA big bash, Supposed to be starting at 16:20 at Metricon, but it’s bucketing over in Brissy just now.

International 20/20 is crap

Sun, 2018-11-18 08:51

International 20/20 is crap regardless....

 

I hope the India test series and the ashes series save Aussie cricket for the masses....

im over the crap being served up. I can follow a footy team rebuilding or going thru a bad stretch because there is often an end in sight even if misguided....but what have we done to international cricket and rugby union in the last ten years? Both are deplorable....if it was a just talent thing I could cop it but it’s clearly a policy thing and too many fingers in the pie thing....we are miles behind world standard and most frustrating of all were too dumb or too stubborn to change anything. It’s now endemic and has filtered into junior and state cricket so will be many years before we dig ourselves out of this hole. ....I hope I’m wrong. 

Bowlers that break down time after time and we rest them so much they don’t get kms in their legs. Bowlers that can’t hit the same line never mind the same length or most frustratingly don’t get instructed to. And batsmen, we are a joke....one trick ponies: hit out or get out is our only way atm....what happened to learning and playing good old cricket shots that have worked for 150 years? 6 of the current test team wouldn’t have made a shield team 10 years ago because of temperament alone....why does Shaun keep getting picked....because he’s the only one left with a test batsman patience...and then only if he gets in, but at least he tries to get in....he’s the only one left worth a pinch of shit (even thou he frustrates the shit out of me personally) and it’s because he grew up under different leadership...pretty sure he debuted with Clarke as captain with pointing still in the team?

we are so shit, a border, Taylor, Waugh, or Ponting (maybe even a Clarke) lead team would towel these current misfits up bowling and batting with their good arm tied behind their back...image for a second what Warne and McGrath would do the current aust batting line up?

Good luck to Alfie trying to right the ship...got at least two-three years of untangling sports science and bullshit egos before you’ll have a team with even the right attitude....and then you’ve got to deal with Juniors coming thru that have watch and been thought slap and tickle their whole life....

Probably unkind to place Aus rugby union in the same basket as Aus cricket imo.  Very different levels of arrogance whether it be from the players or administrators.

His form since the Dubai tour

Mon, 2018-11-19 18:47

His form since the Dubai tour has been outstanding. The only player putting his hand up consistently...and therefore deserves his place for at least the first three tests.

I’m quietly looking forward to the Indian tests here, no doctored pitches so hopefully our quicks can leave some bruises.

Another 20/20 not being shown by channel Basil. Don’t know what their obligations are, considering they have 3 different channels. I can say we’re going ok, rain has stopped play with Aust on 3/153 after 16.1 overs, Max has got his eye in, even hit the overhead spider camera.

Well that’s an Aussie win, by 4 runs or there abouts, Duckworth Lewis came into play. Closed out nicely by Stoinis.

Just turned it on, didnt know they were playing, thought it was on the weekend, anyway, just in time to see Short get his stumps rattled. Could be an early night. 3/36

Why are we playing this

Sun, 2018-11-25 19:57

Why are we playing this mickey mouse shit whilst the Sheffield Shield is running? Would rather see guys like Finch, Stoinis and Maxwell plying their trade over 4 days to earn a Test spot digging in and making runs that matter. It also allows our up and coming bowlers to bowl to higher level batmen and bowl to a set plan.

Mon, 2018-11-26 06:40

Mate, we don’t know how to play shield cricket anymore. Agree stop this rubbish. Make it a U21 comp or similar.

I actually like BBL cause it’s a bit of fun but hate international 20/20 because international cricket should be a serious thing not this embarrassing rubbish....like you said we are doing ourselves a massive disservice playing this rubbish format, agree that finch n co need to learn how to play the longer form....that if you think most of this team is worth the effort, I personally don’t...sack em all....no heart But worse no cricket intellect whatsoever.

i support aust in everything but like I don’t watch international lawn bowls I won’t can’t watch this crap.

I agree, Finch and co have been walk up starts for too long. BBL starts on the 1st December, I start work for a month on the same day, so I’ll miss a lot of cricket, pulling out of here and heading to Newman tomorrow by myself while wifey stays here with her sister. Back on the tools for a month.
