Cricket World Cup

Just watching tonight’s game Aust v Windies. Windies have come in with a game plan, lots of bouncers led to silly wickets. Aust currently 5/137 in the 28th, new bloke named Smith going ok with Carey.

Looks to have been a bad toss to lose, pitch is somewhat flat making it hard yakka for the quicks, expect the little lion man will be brought on soon.

Good win against the Kiwis

Sun, 2019-06-30 08:30

 Wasn't sure they could defend 243, but did it quite easily.

Starc continuing his great form, Behrendorf proving to be a good inclusion, bringing Smith on to bowl at the right time and great fielding proved the difference.

Have been impressed with Carey's batting so far and Khawaja held his end up well though slowly when the big guns failed.

India the biggest threat to Australia's hopes at this stage it seems.

Sun, 2019-06-30 12:06

Hurting today after lasting until 2:30am and still missed all the final action. I was also watching the Pakistan match with a wry smile watching those nails going into the Pommie coffin.

Carey is an absolute beauty. He has a bit of Ponting/Mark Waugh about him in that he is in position early and looks to have all the time in the world to play his shots. Starc is now right up there with Akram imo.

With Lyon in the side and Smith able to roll a few and our quicks firing surely we don't need Maxwell's or Stoinis' pies and can afford to bring in Smarsh for the SA match to strengthen our insipid middle order. We need to at least move Carey up the order if not.

I can understand how the Kiwi's would feel gutted.  They had plenty of opportunities to put a lot more runs on the board and failed to contain the Poms in the last 5 overs.  A masterful display by Stokes was the difference.

Personally I hate countback systems

Mon, 2019-07-15 19:05

Whilst I dislike the penalty shoot out system like they have in soccer at least it produces a result from the shoot out mechanism where the fans and supporters clearly see why the winners won.  Another super over or two would have been a better decider mechanism imo however I take nothing away from the Poms.  It was there for the taking with 5 overs to go and the Kiwis let it slip.
