    So did we ever find out whether Jimmy Anderson knicked it?

    Dharmasena reminded me of a young Sphagnum being forced to umpire during a bye at some backwater shithole in western Sydney on a 40 degree day.

    When in doubt, just give it out so we can all go to the pub and get shitfaced.

    At least there’s cricket to watch. The brief period with no cricket or footy is gay as all f**k. Alcohol fills the void on weekends but the weekdays during this period are the pits.

    A couple of tests in Jan against minnows need to be scheduled to fill the January voids.

    I'm lost now.

    I just saw what you're moaning about. Talk about a storm in a teacup.

    Spend all week doing the form, reading articles, listening to interviews, studying breeding etc

    Then spend all weekend doing your ass.

    If the Kiwis weren’t so good at Union whinging would be their national sport.

    Missed all of days play, never in doubt

    Had there been a 6th day in Melbourne we go 5-0 ;)

    Hopefully we can continue to do well in South Africa, we have always been under dogs going there but managed to win or draw the test series.

    Looking forward to see how India go in England mid year , 5 tests there

    Australia have never lost a series in South Africa ever since South Africa were welcomed back in 1992. Can’t wait for that series, it was a cracker there in 2014.

    Isn't that name of KP's new autobiography as a global franchise t20 cricket player?

    "I love t20" by KP - a short story

    Then the full autobiography,

    "I'm a celebrity in the jungle - get me out of here" by KP, t20 player.

    Sequel "Straussy - I'm sorry" and finally

    "F it - I'm retiring to take up commentary".

    I had a system and it was decent at first but by the end I’d end up winning more using my other fail safe system of picking the horse with the funniest name provided it’s not the favourite. Might get back into to it though.
