    It sure must be tough to earn a crust as a cricketer these days. I guess a few million dollars just doesn't go as far as it used too.

    It is quite conveniently released right before we play a test.

    Basically it should be investigated by Cricket Australia/ICC but its pretty light on the details but heavy on the innuendo. The world cup winning allrounders (and I will generously include everyone from that 2015 squad that can be deemed an allrounder) are M Marsh, Maxwell, Faulkner and Watson.

    Outside of the occasional spell from Broad and Anderson the Poms have already bowled like AIDS.

    The second one will never happen.

    I would trust him to fumble and be annoying that’s about it.

    So if a batsman blocks out an over to purposely get a maiden is what that tells me. Both teams have scored pretty slow this series. Both bowler and batsman would have to be kinda in on it for someone to predict how many runs an over there is cos they could bowl a no ball.
