    Kicks off in a week, Monday 5pm AEDT.

    Coverage both on Fox and Kayo

    Read that Isha is going to host the series. Cummins and Warner drafted in as commentators
    As well as Brett lee and Mark Waugh. Pretty good team, no Warne always helps a lot

    Interesting re Finn Allen, huge school star in Auckland, didn’t really anticipate him becoming a T20 block buster, hopefully the confidence spreads to real cricket

    Guptill is well on borrowed time

    Phillipe had a way better Big Wank that Wade, if they are picking on form he should be there

    We might be a chance now that Boz McCallam has retired.

    He invented T20

    Australia should have a field day against the black caps pace bowlers. Southee, Boult, Jamieson, Bennett and Neesham are bang average when it comes to bowling in t20 cricket.

    Big Bash international edition. Hope we have X-Factors, Bash bonus points and power surges or it's just not worth watching.

    Sadly there’s no proper cricket, so while in reality it’s not worth watching, we’ll watch...:slight_frown:

    This calls for a new buzzword: The lightning high octane X strike!
    So more than just one I guess, but the more buzz words the better.

    Can you say HYPE. High Yield Player Entertainment.
    Could maybe do with more focus group testing with that one.

    All those BBL and IPL superstars in once place. Oh my.
