  1. Anderson is in his prime, he's bowling as well as he ever has.
  2. Therapeutic use exemptions require the likelihood of serious medical problems if the medication is not taken and no other possible medication for the condition.
  3. Because the same wouldn't be returned in Australia? Jeez, they've booed Broad for years because he nicked one behind and didn't walk as if pretty much all their team haven't done the same at any point in their career.
  4. Never because we're not professional international sportsmen. Are you suggesting the players are incapable of reading an ingredients list?
  5. WADA have a full list of banned PEDs available publicly, listing every single different brand of medicine and whether it's banned or not would be an insane job and incredibly difficult to maintain. The ingredients lists are always there.
  6. Woakes instead of Wood.
  7. Yes, it'd be wrong to hate a nationality based on the actions of others many years ago. I'm English and don't go around hating on Germany because of the past.
  8. This is Stokes first World Cup.
  9. You mean like picking 2 of the drier months in the year during the summer and having reserve days in place for knockout games?
  10. A concussion substitute was used.
  11. I'll repeat it yet again. June/July is statistically just as damp as August/September.
  12. What have the Ashes got to do with this?
  13. Our away kit is our red kit but we get home designation for all games given it's our home world cup.
  14. The point of bait is it's not meant to look too obvious mate .
  15. The semi final pitch will be 2 strips over from the last 2 India have played at Edgbaston.
  16. Wood's right up there on pace right now and the tournaments 5th leading wicket taker so far.
  17. No I don't mean that. The local organising committee committee wouldn't have had anything to do with the number of teams, that'll be an ICC board matter (that would require a majority of the full member boards to vote in favour of it).
  18. I'm sure you'll have a source for that...
  19. The ICC have their own 100+ member local organising team for a reason.
  20. I'm not sure whether I wish I was as pessimistic as you or not. I guess the one upside is you can never be disappointed.
  21. It's the used track from the India v Pakistan game. Added to that we played the WI on arguably the flattest ground in the country (right up there with Trent Bridge).
  22. Ashes venue cities (all of which are also World Cup venues) average rainfall in June/July (when the World Cup is on) and August/September (when the Ashes is on). Rainfall days are in brackets. London June: 43mm (13) London July: 41mm (14) London August: 48mm (13) London September 49mm (15) Birmingham June: 60mm (17) Birmingham July: 50mm (18) Birmingham August: 50mm (18) Birmingham September: 60mm (18) Leeds June: 40mm (13) Leeds July: 41mm (12) Leeds August: 41mm (14) Leeds September: 45mm (13) Manchester June: 80mm (20) Manchester July: 60mm (20) Manchester August: 80mm (21) Manchester September: 70mm (20) Don't let the facts get in the way of a good rant though.
