So......how are the aussies enjoying the ashes so far?


Today they bowled really well. I hope they rip off last wicket tomorrow in first session.

DRS is making headlines all over the mainstream media and has fucked rashes series apart. They should "fullproof" DRS system again.

My favorite sportsman and legend of legends Sachin Tendulkar officially played his last test match. His records are insurmountable and will never ever been surpassed. His emotional speech today was perfect and touched every fan of him(including me). Totally a fanboy who'll miss him and pretty much sad that he won't be coming back.

Zomg, Afghanistan beat Bangladesh* in Asia Cup 14. It's time for unknown teams to step up and beat top leaders. The day ain't far when you see teams like Netherlands, Afghanistan, Ireland, or even Nepal ripping top teams apart.

Eh, we deserve it in all honesty, with the kind of shoddy, non-penetrative (yes, I said that) attacking display in the bowling department. And don't forget; they gave Pakistan a run for their money.
Seconded reg. participation of more association teams. Would definitely do the sport a world of good, and give it much needed variety.

I think Bangladesh's performance was good but they gave too much runs in last 20 covers. Otherwise, you see first 30 covers it was mere 100 runs but in last 20 overs they gave away 160 runs(which is good target on sub-continent pitches in 20-20 format). With Asharful* not on your side, openers let the team down. As an old adage goes in cricket, good start makes the team in driving seat. Well, India Pak fighting today, one team has to face rejection today. It'll be fun-day today.

He's my favorite when it comes to hammering down runs against beat teams.

What I like about the current team is that they have a stronger pool of players now, instead of one good player carrying the whole team. Like Ashraful, for example; it's true that we won a lot of matches initially when he was playing to his potential but he'll always be remembered as a missed opportunity, an enigma. Nowadays, we have the capability to win without some star players, as the pool is stronger now (the home series vs. NZ, for example). Addtionally, I'd be much more worried if Shakib Al Hasan (the world's best all-rounder arguably) goes missing more often than not in crunch matches.

Indeed, the loss was totally avoidable, and it just shows that the team is lacking temperament and, to some extent, fitness. Nothing new really. In any case, good luck against Pakistan bud. It'll be a tightly contested one hopefully.

Ah, shit went down to the last ball until Afridi blasted two sixes off consecutive balls and took match away from India. I really thought 245 wasn't an easy target(this whole "dew" shit is drab except ball gets wet and comes on bat easily) and indeed Pakistan had their last sweat until boom boom Afridi finished the game. Close game, bad luck India as they didn't do well with the bat. Had it be +20-25 runs on board, India would have done the job well.

Yes, Hafeez played very good innings but the way he throwed his wicket was very amatuer show.

I have lived in Australia for most of my life and still find cricket to be one of life's more tedious phenomena.

It would be vastly improved if they used hand grenades instead of balls and batters had to fight their way past violent psychopaths armed with cleavers to score runs.

I think Ice Hockey "sux" too. But, still there's a thread where people don't participate how that particular sport "sux".

I Always find it baffling how much of a cricket fan I am even though I am Dutch and that there are people from true cricketing countries who don't carer about it at all.
And btw I am NOT a fan of T20 matches Limited over matches are als not the thing. I want my test matches. Like the epic battering the Poms got at the hands of the Aussies or the great battle between South Africa currently going on. What a shame it's only a three match series though. :-( I want to see fats bowlers soften up batsman, hit them on their body, hit them on their helmet. And that's been going on by both sides this series. Just loving it.

Btw the highlight of my cricketing life has been the Indian team practising at my club in Utrecht about 8 or so years ago and seeing the true cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar practice and after their practice session having a really nice talk with the guy in the clubhouse.

Great. He was fantastic with his skills.

I met him while I was in 7th standard, was on tour with my dad to India and from one of my dad's friend I got to meet The Sachin Tendulkar in New Delhi. I talk to him for half an hour while he was on break from nets and is an amazing guy. He told me to watch out for him while hammering down England bowlers . His next tour was to NZ and was focusing hard to face the heat from bowlers like Shane Bond,Toffel or even Chris Cairns. NZ were champions at that time with superb batting line up.

T20 meant for entertainment and hosting every 2nd year of T20 world cup is now becoming tiring. It's like cup is tossed from one country to another country and the day ain't far where we'll see Nepal lifting T20 world cup. Such an entertainment crap.

And seeing "fast bowlers soften up batsman, hit them on their body, hit them on their helmet"? You gotta have to bring Ambrose, Walsh, Denis Lillie or Waqar Younis back on track and damaging front grill of helmet. I miss the fun and "actual" sledging* on field. Gone are the days when Aussie use to put 9 players(including Wicket Keeper) on slips while Glen McGrath outswings his bullets.
Oh, did you see the amount of match-fixing gone up? Sometimes I feel that every match finishes up in close-contested challenge, it's darn fixed.

*sledging these days have gone crap. Bowler: "Hey fuck you!" Batsmen: "Fuck you too"!! Baaah.

Haawww. fanboy moment? I've never been much of a cricket fan, but I do watch it with friends over a few beers. I barely follow any sport now, maybe I do follow a bit of the xgames, but that's it
By the way, I'm sure Joe would be pissed with you using the word Poms
I had quite the laugh in Germany when I would hear the kebab guys always say pommes, which to me sounded like pomies

I feel for you and the fans out there who turned up in loads to see Bangla win. But, woah, the way they put up the score on board was fantastic. They ripped Pakinstani's bowling unit. Outstanding display of batting but not much shown in bowling. Fielding was awful especially captain dropping Afridi(though he dismissed few deliveries after) but impact would be hella different. Bangladesh played well and I think they'll be top contender to upset big teams in T20 world cup.

With that, India was shown the door too.

And with that, I think that a major shakeup should be on the cards regarding our bowling, coz otherwise, I see this being repeated over and over again, as it has been for the last few years. Pathetic, meek, complacent, coupled with poor captaincy. Our bowling is nowhere near where it was five-six years ago, and it's not like there has been a huge overhaul or anything of that sort, more like a lack of development and wrong/defensive/cowardly attitude. If we can't defend a score like that, then we deserve to be beaten. As simple as that. A real shame for the batsmen, though, coz all of them scored fifties and Shakib was outstanding as well (44 of just 16 balls).

T20 has commenced.

Nice to see Netherlands pulling off great win with 6 overs to go - great opening partnership and ending was murderous. Bangladesh losing to Afghanistan was amusing, I don't know how fans will be reacting(though they qualified). India ripped Pakistan yesterday. Today, rain spoiled an awesome play between New Zealand and England. Poor Brits has to face heat of injustice and frustration. They would have pull off the match.

Let's see how world cup unfolds. I'm really looking forward to.

No frigging idea what happened
I was following the match on Cricinfo and was totally stunned. But at least the Dutch totally demolished the lowest ever inetrnational T20 score. SO, there was a certain style to it Hahahaha
What a totally different kind of batting than in the match against Ireland where they chased down 189 runs in 13.5 overs.

Fast pitches cricket teams should know they playing on sub-continent pitches. The most DIFFICULT pitches of the world. It's easy to get away with on fast pitches as you have a mentality to hit out on the way ball comes to it.

It's quite difficult to play on spinning tracks. Look at Sri Lanka, their spinners ripped middle order of Netherland. Tell captain of Holland team to have few spinners in team.

And funny part is Sri Lanka while chasing down to 40 runs lost their opener. Pathetic, again.

Alex Hales opened the account in style. Still I felt the opening was shabby and fielding was amateur. Broad also need to shuffle bowlers smartly. At the end they gave away too much runs.

Worst exit for Brits. Ashley Giles need to re-configure team while shabbyhead Broad needs to be more mature. Howling down on umpires won't get him an ounce of respect. Like Mech said, lighting do strikes twice in one place. Proved.

Well, India will getting up against *match on between NZ v/s SL*, it has swung badly to SL side. I really want NZ to be in semis so that Indian spinners beat the hell down to Mcullum's boys.
