Watching the WBBL match and the cameras turn to a young boy in the stands eating a watermelon whole. Incredible.

Great to have the WBBL on the main Ten channel, and what a cliffhanger of a finish. With the low target you'd have thought the Renegades would do it easily, but the Stars made them fight for every run. I'm a bit outraged about that wide that was called in the final over, since the margin was so narrow, but the Renegades deserved that win for the tenacity they showed in the face of good bowling - even with a couple of appalling runouts.

This crowd is insane.

And Watermelon Boy continues to be a thing.

Hugely impressive crowd. The MCG and arterial roads were chockers early arvo apparently.

Not a bad time and place to hit a T20 hundred if you're Luke Wright.

Well what a day of domestic cricket. Wouldn't have believed a decade ago if you'd told me I'd spend the day watching a nationally-televised women's game, then that massive crowd at the MCG, then a sellout at Perth. Hell, if you search hard enough you can probably find me on this forum fearing the death of domestic cricket in Australia.

Shit, it's telling that I completely forgot the third Test began today. And of course as soon as I remember to tune in there's a rain delay...

Ben Stokes has made a big hundred, going at better than a run a ball. Maybe we could call him Flintoff mk2.

There's the double century, reached with a four!

It's been pouring for ages in the BBL match and they're still playing?

I'm impressed they're still out there. I thought they were just trying to get to five overs so they could have a result and then walk off.

Also, I don't get why you have to play 40% of the innings to get a result in ODIs, 20 overs, but only 25%, 5 overs, in T20.

Amazing finish in the rain up in Brisbane, with the Heat finally getting a win. Chris Lynn was incredible. Surely he selects himself for the Australian T20 team now.

And Bairstow just brought up his maiden ton in Cape Town! His celebration was wonderful, you could tell what it meant to him. The partnership's now well past 300...
