Cricket World Cup.

 Not fishing, sorry, but can anyone explain to me why Smith & Warner are taking their cricket gear to the UAE ???

I didnt know they had proven themselves playing at the top of their games yet. 

Both have had a below average time in the middle lately.

To think that someone that is playing well & gelled into the team will miss out because Aussie cricket is a "Boys Club".

I thought Justin Langer was better than that.

IOM they both should have been stripped of their Baggy Greens.......

Bloody walk up starts, was discussing this with a mate, who gets dropped from a team that’s doing so well?

Fri, 2019-03-15 17:50

Bancroft has shown more form than those 2 put together. Marsh is the only baggage the aussies have but it is a club for mates so probably will stay in there aswell.
Havent had a lot of time for cricket this year and not likely to in the near future either.

Do the crime do the time and these biys have dine their time 10x over.

Smith is 100% a walk up start and if Warner is back to his best in the warm up matches then Finch can carry the drinks.

 Did Warner recently have his elbow surgery? But I agree if in form paly them if they've finished their penalties, Langer will know what to do with these boys as far as dicipline.

Adam, can you move this to where it belongs?

Sat, 2019-03-16 10:42

 Certainly doesnt belong in the Fishing Discussion sub forum. And to the original poster-- you said you knew it wasnt fishing, so why did you post it here? It belongs in General Discussion.

 I also just use Latest Content, but to actually post you have to select a section, it doesnt do it at random.

Not a huge deal except when (say) you only want to look at peoples trips etc so go to that section.

Cricket?, never been a huge fan and since all these goings on and the poor sportsmanship evident for a long time, Im out altogether

Sat, 2019-03-16 16:42

 ..you haven't seen a rant. Some people are careless as to what they post where, or do it by mistake. That happens. What is your reason? Again, you said you knew it wasn't fishing, but posted it anyway, when you must have known it was a General Discussion topic. Think you won't get enough views there, or just trolling? Curious.

Some of you may just go to the latest post on whatever, some of us use the forum only for what interests us, which is fishing and boating, and largely stay out of General Discussion.

Reading the title of 'Cricket World Cup' why did you open it when it clearly isn't fishing and therefore doesn't interest you?

I dont really think its fair

Fri, 2019-03-29 19:45

I dont really think its fair to attack a prolific contributor to the forum like Ranmar in this way.

Different maybe if it was someone who never actually produces content here, but Ranmar would be amongst the top few contributors for quality content and Fishwrecked would be way poorer

without him here, and I'd be astonished if anyone disagreed with that.

That alone I think at least gives him some leeway to have a say.

My personal opinion, I agree with what he says in so far as while I mainly use "Latest Content" also, at times I'll go into say Holidays and Trips and it'd be shit if it was half full of cricket and footy.

Whats so hard about putting it in the correct forum, and doing it deliberately would seem to be somewhat churlish.

Most of us that have been here long term will have seen at times "what ever happened to such and such", and when you go back to their last posts it has been something like this directed at them.

Sat, 2019-03-16 17:05

Fishwrecked has never been the type of site that is hard on posters if they post in the wrong forum. Wander down and have a read in the general discussion forum and you will see that, but it is a good local site where in general most people accept that and don't worry too much. Go and have a fish and let everyone know how you go. you have good input normally.

Well back to the cricket

Sun, 2019-03-17 09:19

 Neither got a start in the last two games against India which was a good call i think. But they both need a chance to play agaianst good/quality bolwers before the world cup starts.

Got to test all players which make up the full squad prior to settling in a the starting line up.

Mon, 2019-03-18 08:41

Smith and Warner are in the UAE simply for a catch up with the Australian team, nothing more. They're on the way to IPL to get some cricket under their belts. If their form is good enough then they will get a run in the World Cup, if not, then they won't. They got a big penalty and have (almost) done their time, I think that we all just need to relax.

Apology.

Mon, 2019-03-18 14:28

 I deeply apoligise to ranmar and those who can't just scroll past a subject.

I will not do it again.

I just have one question.

Should i have put this apology on the General discussion page (where nobody will know what it's about)?

Or leave it here to which i will probably get into trouble from him again, but then he wouldn't know i have apoligised for it.

Geez some people make life way too hard.

 

cheers.

CA have reported it as a dislocated shoulder to his bowling arm. That's a real shame for the young man who give it his all and hopefully there's no ligament damage.

Nonetheless we're hitting a purple patch of ODI form at the perfect time! Warner smacked 85 from 53 in the IPL too.

Yes, as it’s turned out, I watched the incident and thought it was his arm from that and nobody would say what it actually was, so found out this morning it was his collar bone.

Thu, 2019-03-28 15:12

What am I referring too, page 96 bottom right hand side Wednesdays West Australian.

So as to keep this post relevant to a fishing forum I say this, to me those people who have chucked the mud at this particular time are like carp feeding, they pollute the water by their bottom feeding in amongst the detritus and similar type of bottom covering material.
Why didn't they put their views to the cricket board when the case of ball tampering first came to light.

Sat, 2019-03-30 07:54

Good win by the Aussies. Finch and Ussy in sparkling form, Maxie slaying it down the order, Carey in good touch as the anchor and Warner brutilising the IPL. I think Smarsh is going to make way with Ussy dropping down to 3 and it'll become a tussle between Handscom and Smith in the leadup matches and early pool matches.
