Australia will finish on about 260, half-tons to Clarke and Gilly, with great cameos from Haydos and Hopes.

Australia slayed Sri Lanka, Sangakkara's 41 the only resistance. Pathetic.

I just thought i'd pipe up and say i hope England murderise us throughout this entire one day and test series.

Given the drums are already beating for Bracewell hopefully an appalling series effort will be the end of him.

Please.

Good to see Channel 9 broadcast some women's cricket this morning- even if it was just the highlights from last weekends Twenty20 match

Well Done India!

Lets be honest, if Mike Hussey didn't get going India could have won a heck of a lot easier!

Well done to India, but they were only chasing a total of about 150... and the commentators were lauding it as one of the greatest victories of all time. The Indians bowled extremely well, don't get me wrong, but it took India nearly the entire 50 overs to chase it down, and there was a stage there when Australia was very much in the game.

Been quite impressed with Rohit Sharma, Gambhir, Dhoni's captaining, Pathan, Sharma and Sreesanth's bowling. Even if Sharma looks like a rat and barely speaks English.

Quick story: I was scoring for the our B Turf side yesterday (I play for Wyndhamvale) and our captain, who made 8 from 84 balls, at a strike rate of 9.5, hit the stumps with his bat. This is what followed.

"Fuck! What a soft fucking way to get out! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!"
"Ease up mate there's kids over here!"
"I know, I know..... FUCK!"
"Mummy, why is he saying fuck?"
*Captain punches the wall and almost breaks his hand.*

IPL looks to be a massive nail into the coffin of what cricket should be about.

Some cracking squads there, but the game is not a test of genuine cricketing ability so who you've got playing for ya is pointless.

Did you read today how much the Aussie Players are getting taxed?

Andy Symonds is only going to get just under 800,000 from his $1.4millon contract.

20/20 and the IPL are doing a great job at making me want to adopt a football code as my favourite sport

And Mr. Swan gets it all.....


If you'd asked me about this situation like a week ago I was enthused. Now? Not so much.
