    Mzansi Super League

    Do South Africa not have any kind of employment laws that would make this illegal?

    Where in UK is this test being shown?

    BT have the rights to games in Australia.
  3. Yes. Hence why I stated "returning" to a 2 year cycle. Given it already culminates with the World Cup and the lack of sense a knockout tournament makes from a financial/organisational point of view I'd happily take you up on that.
  4. No it's not, the ICC have made clear their intent of returning the tournament to a 2 year cycle instead of continuing with the Champions Trophy.
  5. Would make more sense if the Champions trophy wasn't being directly replaced with an additional WT20 tournament that will produce more profits.
  6. Well yeah, it's a bit harder to call a ball a no ball when zoomed in pictures show part of the heel behind the line than it is to claim there's an edge when pictures show daylight between bat and ball.

    How was that not a no-ball??

    Not entirely sure what this means, but I'm gonna guess it's disagreement. To me the back of his heal is just overhanging behind the line.

    Struggling to see how they were in any way comparable, Bumrahs you could literally see a chunk of the line behind his heel.

    Zoom in, the back of the heel appears to just overhang behind the line.
  10. No, they came out and publicly stated those exact words to the media after the incident.
  11. Er no, that was direct quote from the gay men in question calling him a 'real hero'. The chances of him recieving any prison time at all are minimal.
  12. The only alleged incident of him targeting people for being gay so far has been claims he mocked a pair of gay men. The alleged incident was witnessed only by the bouncer he'd just previously insulted. The gay pair the bouncer claimed he mocked have come out since the incident and labelled Stokes a 'real hero".
  13. The 2 men he beat up aren't the gay ones and it was the ECB that withdrew him from the ashes not the CPS.
  14. Buttler has international captaincy experience whilst Bairstow doesn't even have experience at domestic level. It's pretty clear that Buttler's expected to take over from Morgan in limited overs in the future therefore he's the natural choice as Roots deputy in tests right now.
  15. We have 8 left handed batsmen in our lineup which makes that rough slightly less important. For the first time since our last game.
  16. A full list of who's missing that would currently be participating if they were at full strength : A Cook, Lawrence, Ten Doeschate, Bopara, Wheater, Harmer, Porter, Wagner, S Cook.
  17. A generous statement, there's 9 players from their current full strength team who haven't played a part in this match.
  18. At full strength a 5 to 8 of Stokes, Buttler, Moeen, Woakes is more than good enough in the batting department, especially with Plunkett, Rashid and Willey/Wood to follow. Might as well go with the security of an extra bowling option.
  19. For a right hander the boundary over cover/square leg (depending on the end) is probably one of the shortest in world cricket.

    Pujara's county performance thread

    Think Coad's going to have to up his pace a little bit to get an England cap.
  21. He was asked specifically about the Australian series and their preparation going into it. Yes this was an international game and it's also a significant part of the preparation going into the next series, just like any other consecutive series in the same format would be. "It was a fantastic game of cricket. Scotland played extremely well. They brought their best game and we didn't, we were far from it. Full credit to Scotland" - Ungracious and arrogant?
  22. He said a close competitive game was better preparation than just practicing (i.e having some nets) when asked about the Australia series specifically, don't see what's not true or arrogant about that. Would you prefer him saying England shouldn't play Scotland/Ireland prior to ODI series and should just have some nets instead?

    Australia refuse to host Bangladesh

    There's never been a game of international cricket played in England in April...?
  24. As far as I'm aware Lloyds only ever been critical of the television commercialisation of the IPL such as adverts taking place every single over and has actually always been pretty complimentary on the cricketing side of things? Seems fair enough to me?

    Kohli to play for Surrey in June

    Unfortunately for you he'll only play a single game at The Oval and that's a one dayer.
