This is getting a bit depressing.

Wow, England really plundered runs today. Not surprised they declared - and oh god what a horrible runout to kick off South Africa's resistance.

Carlos Brathwaite has a bright future ahead of him. Probably even a bit wasted batting at 7 when Samuels and Ramdin are up the order.

Samuels right now seems to be the absolute definition of not giving a shit. Awful play. You feel for people like Holder or both of the Brathwaites because they've been actually trying to drag this team along and attitudes like Samuels' make that task so much harder.

And how the fuck did Chris Lynn miss the ODI squad?! At least Watto missed it too.

Looks like rain might save the Windies from losing the series 3-0. These last two days have not seen the greatest amount of play, and the forecast for the next three is not promising.

Wow, the Renegades just bowled consecutive wicket maidens against Hobart. Didn't think I'd see that in the Big Bash.

Chris Gayle fucked up tonight.

Chris Gayle comments cause uncomfortable Big Bash interview with Mel McLaughlin

Mel McLaughlin handled herself remarkably well given the circumstances.

I can't say I'm surprised (and I'd be lying if I said I didn't have an awkward laugh as the whole thing occurred) - this is, after all, the guy who called himself the #UniverseBoss in a column for The Age. He's got an ego bigger than any six he's ever hit. McLaughlin deserves full credit for remaining professional through the interview.

He can have as big an ego as he wants without having to resort to low shit like that.

Good words by Daniel Brettig.

This is good too. According to Chris Rogers this behaviour is all too common.

There've been some good reflective pieces today. The anecdote at the start of Russell Jackson's piece almost defies belief: It's not just Chris Gayle: sport media's Blokesworld mindset needs to change | Sport | The Guardian
