Doesn't help that their best player plays for England. Which is a direct result of them not getting the support because of boneheaded ICC policies.

This is absolutely hilarious:

Cricket: Kerry O’Keeffe shares amazing Imran Khan story

Quote:
SHANE Warne is considered by many as cricket’s greatest playboy, but former Test spinner Kerry O’Keeffe has lifted the lid of his experiences with another, Pakistani legend Imran Khan — and the tale leaves “Warney” in the shade.

My dream XI for Pune, the first Test:

Warner
Renshaw
Khawaja
Smith
Handscomb
Nevill
O'Keefe
Starc
Lyon
Hazlewood
Holland

That's a huge risk using only five specialist batsmen plus a keeper, but Nevill is averaging 72 this Shield season and I firmly believe that taking 20 wickets is going to be more important than an extra 50 runs. This way we've got our two best quicks, our two best spinners and the best Shield spinner of season.

My wish from the squad we have (fuck it's a joke Nevill isn't in it):

Warner
Renshaw
Khawaja
Smith
Handscomb
Agar (gets a go ahead of Maxwell to start with, if he doesn't perform, Maxwell's in)
Wade
O'Keefe
Starc
Lyon
Hazlewood

The team that will very likely be playing:

Warner
Renshaw
SMarsh
Smith
Handscomb
MMarsh
Wade
O'Keefe
Starc
Lyon
Hazlewood

No Marsh should be selected for any Australian team.

Any of you catch the women's Australia vs New Zealand T20 just then? Awesome win by New Zealand, with Anna Peterson becoming the first Kiwi woman to take an international hat-trick. It came from the first three balls she bowled that day, and her final delivery resulted in a run-out too. Great ending, great cricket.

The last three overs of tonight's T20... wow. Gunaratne played an unbelievable knock.

Thrilling start to international cricket in Geelong.

So Grant Elliot is at it again. Lahore needed 6 to win off the last over against Islamabad in the PSL with just one wicket remaining, with Grant Elliot on strike......

I hope Ian Smith was there in the commentary box to get another chance to shout "AND HE'S HIT IT INTO THE GRANDSTAND! GRANT ELLIOTT, SUPERMAN!"

So good.

Who is this commentator? He sounds like NZ's answer to BT.

How have you not heard Danny Morrison before?! He's fucking amazing. But it does him a great disservice to compare him with BT.

Seriously, that bat drop is the best celebration I've seen.

I've heard of him, but I hadn't been able to put the voice to the name!
