Mine's fine tbh. The lack of cameras is irritating but the quality is fine
Having to watch from over the batsman's shoulder is bullshit.
My housemate suggested a drinking game. A shot every time this bloke commentating the NSW game says "powerfully driven".
I hope you are all available to attend my funeral
Marnus Labuschagne helped steer Queensland to a four-wicket win, but also became the first fielder penalised under cricket's new rule against "fake fielding".
The Cricket Australia XI received five penalty runs after Param Uppal drove a ball towards mid-off, where Labuschagne dived and missed the ball, but faked a throw that led to Uppal initially turning back from the run he had started. However, once Uppal realised the ball had passed Labuschagne, he completed the run.
The MCC's new Law 41.5 states that: "it is unfair for any fielder wilfully to attempt, by word or action, to distract, deceive or obstruct either batsman after the striker has received the ball". The umpires have the discretion to award five penalty runs if they determine that such deception is wilful.
In a paper summarising the Law changes, the MCC stated specifically that mock fielding, "where a fielder feigns to field the ball and/or feigns to throw a non-existent ball in an attempt to prevent the batsmen running", was regarded as unfair and was a target of this new Law. Although the MCC's revised Laws come into effect from October 1, the JLT Cup's playing conditions reflect the upcoming changes.
The penalty runs helped the Cricket Australia XI to 7 for 279 in the match at Allan Border Field in Brisbane - Max Bryant top-scored with 60 and Ben Pengelley contributed 53. However, the CA XI were unable to complete their second consecutive victory, as Queensland reached their target with nine balls remaining.
Labuschagne, who was named Player of the Tournament in last year's one-day domestic competition, made 61 from 62 balls in the successful chase. Matt Renshaw top-scored with 67, Joe Burns made 49 and Ben Cutting struck a brisk 39 from 25 balls towards the end of the chase.
the great Sean Marsh 132 from 136 balls to sink the blues
The Blues sunk themselves. Were cruising at 3/200 and then decided to bat like retards,
I'm out at the Bulls V Redbacks game. Very tight Queensland bowling.
Queensland lose by 84 runs. Bowled out for 157 at AB field is poor.
Mickey Edwards more than just a blonde fielder
Nic Maddinson with 137 of 119 balls to go along with Edwards' impressive bowling figures.
Blues second XI getting the job done.
It's Tasmania lets not go overboard. Good win though.
Do lol at abbott's batting..0 & 1...go "all rounder" lol
Your QLD mob st full strength got pumped by SA lol. Don’t go throwing stones.
Abbott faced 6 balls you douche
He bowled OK 3/29
Why do we suddenly care what Locky thinks?
If cricket knowledge were sustenance he'd have starved to death years ago
Victoria had a huge win over Tasmania today
NSW lost to the redbacks as well
very hot and cold start by the blues this year , 3 games in, 1 win only
Blues playing CAXI today, starts 1030
We should win it well
Can we get any form of cricket coverage where they don't wank on about AFL?
