Well I'm over the IPL, and Ricky Ponting is right back after smashign 158 against the Windies.

I laugh though, because they're putting up more of a fight than Sri Lanka did

Brad Hodge Stay home with Lara, Michael. I would.

Again, Hodgey fires for the national side. Though he could smash 300 and still the overrated Pup will be ushered straight into the side.

Sadly that's true. But he is the future captain. And I think he's above the status of overrated though.

Oh yeah, and there's an enthralling test match on, where for once the quicks are having an impact.

We did win last night, so there is that.

But fuck. We're an extremely average side, and the godawful uniform from Canterbury of NZ doesn't bode well for the Warriors strip next year.

Not to defend our truly unimpressive performances of late, but I would like to remind you that Australia lost to Bangladesh before we did. Over three years ago, back when Bangladesh were even worse than they are today!

(That Aussie loss happened while I was in the US, and none of the Yanks quite understood why I was so happy that day.)

I'd suppressed that.

I saw the scorecard though, and the Tigers had you 9/160 odd, so they could have beaten you, just that Oram and some other bloke put on 50 odd not out for the last wicket.

They wouldn't have beaten us if they'd bowled us out for 160.

Just to bring up another stat to make me not feel so bad about things - New Zealand was the last of the major cricketing countries to be beaten by Bangladesh.

WE DO HOLD SOME CRICKET RECORDS THAT ARE ACTUALLY GOOD!

The less said about the record deliveries for a duck, the better.

That's a big call...

^Am I the only one who still prefers tests over one-dayers and twenytwenys?

Not at all.

Tests are all that matters now. The meaning of ODI's has been diluted by the over-frequency of matches since 2000. And one-dayers don't reflect cricketing ability.

Glad to hear

Tests for me are the ultimate. Don't reeally give a shit about ODI's, apart from say the summer series between us and two others, which can be quite good, the operative word there most definitely being can. Can't stand the world cup. Results are far too often one-sided, I'm not going to go into actually, cast your minds back to the last one for reasons. Twenty20's are great entertainment, but nothing beyond that. I consider it a marketing thing, it's not cricket, as much as I enjoy watching them (again, sometimes).

India well on top in the second test, best we can hope for is a draw. Our bowlers are shithouse.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh are on top in the first test against New Zealand!! wowowoohohoho!
