Gone quiet in here. Good first Test, this one shaping up nicely.

Perth’s new ground has thrown up a nice pitch.

Nathan Lyon is a champion.

If you love your cricket as much as me, have all of your chores done and a few cold beers to down then stick on the test match now and watch Kohli knock....great great batting that has to be admired.

I played with a guy in the UK who NEVER thought he was out, would never just walk off and would bang on for ******* hours about hiw much of a bullshyte decision it was. The ****er could be clean bowled with his middle stump cartwheeling away from him and he would still find reason to whinge about it or even better...he would blame you for not taking a single that would have got him off strike or something...or you sneezed, farted or looked at him wrong.....

Yep..my old man was a bastard to bat with....

Big night in the WC!

This tournament has been surpisingly entertaining.  I thought it was gonna be a runfest and that having 10 teams all playing each other once would be dull, but it has been a great battle between bat and ball, and the format has been good.

Also, England struggling has topped it off. They could still come good of course, but Johnny Bairstow's little hissy fit this week was brilliant.

Pakistan, what a mad team! They must be the most entertaining international sports team around. Being a Pakistan cricket fan would be heart-attack inducing.

Meh, it's all about the Lionesses in England at the moment, big semi against USA coming up midweek. Cricket feels tainted because of Australia and the sight of Warner and Smith lifting the world cup would be truly puke worthy.

Oh yeah cricket is tainted because of two guys who have taken their medicine and done their year suspension for a crime that many others - including England on more than one occasion - have got away with or been slapped on the wrists.  Meanwhile, England's best player is a dude who beat the living **** out of someone and got away with it.

Anyway, Johnny got his flat track today so once he survived some early nicks and plays and misses, he went alright.

They want the SCG to have drop-in pitches because it looks bad trying to sell it to a non AFL market! 

Already discussed in the AFL thread.

Bye bye India.

If Australia beat your old mob, then the heads in the ECB will be mighty unhappy.

Comment I read from someone...

How does a country with a population of 4.6 million with rugby as their number one sport beat a country of 1.3 billion whose major sport is cricket...

AS someone who used to love the game and have been to test matches in venues aroun Aus from childhood the cheating antics of Warner & Co has totally turned me off cricket as a whole....so.......I don't want them to win it. The poms should get up on home soil in the semi and then they hopefully lose to the Kiwis in the Final......:P

:D

Australia win toss and bat first, game over, no need for the 50 overs each.

Going to be a backpacker crowd at Lords for NZ v Aus.
