    The great Sandhu returns!!!!!! He has had enough of old Parraboys side and is making a late dash to get in. Please impress Parraboy!

    Sandhu got an absolute freebie there. This won''t help to break in Parraboy's side.

    Sixers are making Sandhu look like Wasim Akram out there.

    Getting pretty over the standard of umpiring in BBL.

    We could see the Silk v Sandhu Showdown the world has been craving for.

    The way the Big Bash is run is a f**king shambles. You either play it in these conditions or you don't. There needs to be some sort of standard.

    Yep administration has been terrible over the last few years. Extending the season was a mistake as was going away from having all games on free to air TV.

    Yep. If ever there was a season to make you lose interest in the Big Bash this is it.
    - Season goes too long - should go back to the format from a couple of years ago
    - All games should be on free to air - I have Foxtel so it doesn't affect me but I find this has reduced general interest in the comp as a whole
    - Lack of quality players - Time to increase the amount of international players allowed in each side, 2 just isn't enough. Bring it up to 3 or 4 to increase the quality and depth of sides.
    - Presentation from Fox and 7. Both have been terrible. Bring back international commentators like Viv Richards. Getting sick of hearing about the rat that ate Steve Waugh's baggy green, Andrew Symond's theory about bails weighing too much and Mark Howard's general jibbering.

    *I think the season is going till near March...way too long.
    *Foxtel has hurt a whole lot of sports. Cricket has joined the club.
    *Import quota should absolutely be increased. If they want this comp to be international standard, they need more high standard players to bring it up. I'd have four imports.

    Having guys like Smith, Warner, Lab playing in the BBL now is what the comp needs.
    Renagades are probably looking to see if they can extend Finch's stay over there.
    Not these guys playing in a random, irrelevant series in India.
