  1. If it weren't for Sydney's shytty weather, they would have been knocked out in semi here also.
  2. NZ are a good team. They just have a mental block against Australia.
  3. Brat might have sledged Paine about being a temporary captain last Australian summer, but if not Paine, who's gonna be the Aussie test skipper in the short term? - Hazlewood? Cummins? Lyon? They NEVER give the captaincy to a bowler. - Head? Captain of South Australia, but still hasn't found a permanent place in the Test team. - Labuschagne? Looks like he could become a permanent fixture, but he isn't just yet. Let him concentrate on his batting and part-time spin for now. - Finch (the ODI and T20I captain)? Hopelessly exposed against India in the Test series last summer. No. - Smith? Not eligible again until March 2020, and why would you want to go back there anyway? Let him just concentrate on being the best batsman in the world. - Mitch Marsh? lol j/ks
  4. Congrats to Australia on retaining the Ashes. First time in England since 2001. The obnoxious twats in the Aussie media (Crash Craddock, et al) will be insufferable now.
  5. Smith making a century nearly every time he bats is getting a bit boring now.
  6. Craig Overton in for Woakes for England. Wtf does Sam Curran have to do to get a game? Roy and Denly swap positions - Denly to open, Roy to #4. So I suppose Roy has swapped coming in at the beginning of the innings for coming in at 2 for 10?
  7. Highly entertaining, but also highly effective.
  8. "We've got Steve Smith Steven Peter (Devereux) Smith I just don't think you understand He's Justin Langer's man, He's better than Brad-man, We've got Steven Smith." Or something like that (to the tune of Achy Breaky Heart, of course).
  9. I live for the day when Stuart Broad gets fined for excessive appealing.
  10. Cummins and Pattinson bowling together...
  11. Looks like all three of the "Sandpaper Trio" could be playing in the first test, with Bancroft favoured to partner Warner at the top of the order, and Smith batting at four. The Barmy Army are waiting...this is what is on the back of their official series polos and t-shirts:
  12. Win predictor should be blown up. Greatest load of rubbish ever. Congrats NZ.
  13. Fans of every other cricketing nation are also hoping thala doesn't retire.
  14. Right back at ya, Aussies.
  15. Yes, NZ have been kissed on the d!ck so many times in this tournament, I just expect it to continue.
  16. Smith almost singlehandedly keeping AUS in this game.
  17. Aus just need to make a similar score to what NZ did against Ind. Their bowlers will do the rest.
  18. I was doubly flat this morning - with this result, and Queensland losing the State of Origin series right at the death, NSW scoring the match-winning try in the 80th and final minute. It’s on to the international rugby season (Rugby Championship and World Cup) for me now.
  19. If you think that I thought India were shoo-ins for the final, you are wrong. All I thought was that India v NZ was the battle for second. Obviously I still think that.
  20. Want NZ-Eng final, so we are guaranteed of having a first-time winner.
