Maybe for Melbourne Australia shouldn't select any recognized bowler and see whether India can get close.

Remember when Australian pitches had character?

The WACA in particular is as useless as a road now.

I generally hate anything played at the WACA nowadays, ugly stadium, ugly field, meaningless pitch. Cricket at the Gabba is a bit of a dirge too.

It's hilarious the Heat have been so shit in the BBL because the Gabba more than almost any ground seems custom-made for thrashing big totals.

The Heat have been ordinary purely because aside from Lynn (and Simmons/Burns when he's available sometimes) they don't have any real quality batsmen, and their bowling is weak.

Damn, he didn't make much, but by god the rest of his team did. Thunder are first team to pass the 200 mark this season, I think. And for the Sixers to stay in contention they need to get there within 16 overs! Good fucking luck.

That was hilarious. Glad the Sixers made a real go of if, though even when they had wickets in hand there was a sense of inevitability.

Bad start for the Stars...

Good hundred. Too bad the result will be identical to the two games before it.

A tad annoyed about Broad since it took the attention away from Rabada's first 5fa.

A time must come when Brayshaw is removed from the commentary for good.

Do other countries have shite nicknames for their players like 'The Big Show' and 'The Finisher'?

Get Maxwell in our Test team too. What a magnificent knock.

I dislike him immensely but he'd be the correct replacement for MMarsh.

I'd be swapping him in for Voges to be honest. I think it's a little harsh to judge Mitch Marsh on this summer. He's obviously a huge talent, but it's hard to get yourself going when you've really only had two or three opportunities in three months to actually spend time at the crease. Really hasn't had much of a go with the bat. And he's been quite impressive with the ball.

NZ I'd be running with

Warner
Cowan
Khawaja
Smith
Maxwell
MMarsh
Nevill
Pattinson
Starc
Hazlewood
Lyon

(obviously that's not realistic. Burns to open, Voges at five and reckon they'd probably take Siddle over Pattinson, mmmmmaybe swap Siddle/Patto/Hazlewood around. SMarsh as 12th or in place of his brother as an extra bat)
