    Wrong numbers always get a response from me even if the topic itself is worn and tiresome. Just one of my quirks.

    Smith and Kohli for me are on the top tier alone (AB would be there no doubt if he had played much this year)

    Williamson, Root would lead the tier below, which really isn't a bad place to be.

    The series in India will be interesting to watch, not just for Kholi vs Smith, but Smith has had 89 innings with 63 of them being in Australia and England.which is quite unbalanced. Will be interesting to see how he adapts on Indian pitches.

    Weird that AG seems to view showing his ignorance and poor math is somehow a victory

    "Pre-eminent umpire"?

    Is it 2006 or something?

    Even then I don't know that he was ever considered the top umpire, certainly not for long anyway. But it's pretty funny the way he went for the hat adjustment when he realised he had f**ked up.

    The adjustment is hilarious imo

    I've always wanted to either a) bring my counter up to my eyes and click the next delivery, or b) bring my finger up to scratch my nose, in response to an appeal. Just to mess with people's minds

    Yeah, me too - just never thought I'd see it in a domestic game - and most of them missed it

    Certain team mates or opponents I'll mess with a bit like that tbh when umpiring, just because it's hilarious.

    Cant really blame him, on air ambushes is not the place to discuss selection policies.

    I think KP is a lot like Warnie, likes to get his name in the papers.

    Yeah for sure...and I watched a video where KP and Maxwell were discussing the switch hit. They are clearly mates.

    But yeah...definitely crossing a line of professionalism. Mind you, you're probably putting yourself in an awkward position immediately being a part of the selectors and the media simultaneously.

    It's not overly professional but like I said on the night it's about time someone took Waugh or any of the selectors to task. I don't agree with KP about Maxwell but I did particularly like his jab about the bowling attack we took to South Africa

    They're both knobs anyway

    You cant rip on a selector on air and then push the barrow for Maxwell. KP has no credibility.

    Giggles can get f**ked. Pissed off from South Africa because he couldn't get picked, backstabbed his English captains and team mates and now poking his nose into Australia's business.

    Wanker.

    When did we start calling the batsman a 'batter', seems to be pretty prevalent at the moment.
    Last I check batter was what you put on fish.

    It started in women's cricket, they refer to themselves as batters

    Latest rankings are quite interesting-

    http://www.icc-cricket.com/team-rankings/test

    India clear #1 in Tests. Australia clear #2. NZ should leapfrog Pakistan and go up to 5, but will probably lose it seeing as we don't play another Test after South Africa until later this year FFS

    Australia #1 in ODI's. NZ #1 in T20.

    Steve Smith clear #1 in Test batting, but 10th in ODI's and not in the top 10 for T20. I find his low ranking in ODI's to be a bit bizarre.

    Maxwell ranked #3 in T20
