    a game of cricket is never won/lost by any one bowler or batter. Sorry, but its a total team sport.

    This league is starting to grow on me, I love the fact that there's a lot to play for so there's plenty of fire and emotion. Sure beats watching 3 days of boring test cricket between NZ and SA or even between Sri Lanka and Aus. May follow it more closely next year.

    I'm glad CA called bullshit on that stunt. He deserves to be pinged.

    It was a deliberate ploy to bowl slow making Faulkner captain

    :lol:So much for being nicknamed "The Bear"

    Well, it's no point CA reporting him if they aren't going to properly discipline him. They had the chance to do it with the brouhaha he had with Samuels but when you get the CEO of CA speaking in defense of your bad behaviour, they've already set a dangerous precedent.

    I'm sorry, but you don't understand the meaning of "cricket". T20 is a bastardisation of what many half-witted Gen-Y'ers call 'cricket'.

    Possibly. I think I understand the meaning of "entertainment".

    What a dreadful way for Warney to finish his career (most likely). He is getting more and more mental as he gets older. Glad the Scorchers won because as a Heat fan I can at least handle losing to them.

    I don't get the hatred for the BBL. I'm a fan, I watch every match and so does my missus. State based 20/20 or this form: either way is fine with me. FTR Test cricket is my preferred form but its a false dichotomy to say if you like 20/20 in general and the BBL in particular you're somehow not a real fan of the sport. You can have both; why not?

    I don't like it's current format and preferred the 6 team state based version

    I have no interest in the current teams where previously i had NSW

    State based with everyone playing each other twice

    With or without overseas imports?

    Would the state sides be allowed to go to the icl? I guess they would

    Well put. I'm the same.

    Any cricket is better than no cricket.

    I don't have a problem with 20/20 Cricket but I preferred the state based comp, if they wanted extra teams maybe bring one in from the ACT or something

    Having said that I will be at the final tomorrow

    Definitely prefer the State based one, I still get confused like when seeing Tom Cooper in Red playing for Melbourne playing against Adelaide.

    Brisbane did well making the final when you looking at their side, very similar to the Thunder but they have better players outside of their big guns.
