    They must be recycling articles! Ive read that Phil was the better cricketer but I havent read 442 since my subscription expired and that was years ago!

    Gayle is unstoppable when he gets going... Why couldn't he do that for Sydney thunder, instead of just bankrupting the team. They were downright shithouse this bbl.

    Too early to start Ashes discussion? 10 weeks to go.
    I'm predicting Australia 3-2, in a tight series. Mind you, Aus batting better improve a tad

    IF Phillip Hughes gets away early in the series, IF Warner has a strong showing, IF Cowan can hang around, then Maybe, just maybe we're in with a shot.
    Our bowling is as potent as England's - that shouldn't be a problem.
    Our spearhead won't be mercurial Mitch Johnson anyway - can only do better than 2009

    Phil Hughes has been around for years now and done hee-haw - Warner can scelp it all over the place but no-one will convince me he's a Test match bat........... Cowan........... i do like those straws, keep clutching them, you never know

    England aint that great........... but theyll still pump you







    Too good a team, never replaced.

    Langer
    Hayden
    Ponting
    Gilly
    Warne
    McGrath
    Lee

    Far too many epic players to replace all at once - that was a 'glory' period for Aus cricket

    I like our bowling attack too, but we are nowhere near England. I love Siddle, but I see him offering the least bowling wise and would go with (if all fit) Pattinson, Starc, Harris, and Lyon with fagboy Watson as backup. In reality though, Siddle will be in front of Harris.

    And as a bonus, they can all bat. And we'll need them to get runs because our top and middle order is a rabble.

    Assuming everyone has done their homework assignments, I 100% agree with that lineup Oz...

    I think Harris is better than Siddle but they won't leave him out... And Watson is an idiot but he *might* perform

    I think Bird is good too. England conditions should suit him well, if he gets on

    During the week, I saw that Kevin O'Brien from Ireland smashed Pakistan all over the park in a tied result. I hope he and Ireland continue to flourish - who can forget his awesome 100 against England in the World Cup in 2011. That was such an amazing innings, I got the DVD of the game.

    And... 6 weeks til Ashes begins!
    Alas NZ fell a bit short of being competitive, but at least showed Aus will have a chance with the ball.

    My mate is married to O'Briens sister

    NZ got pulverised in these test matches. England go into Ashes in good firm but they may need to re-jig batting order

    Root and Bairstow both proved themselves.

    Is there space in the side for KP?

    Of course - you don't leave out one of the worlds best players when he's fit I think they'll probably drop Bairstow tbh......... although Compton might be under a bit of pressure! Always thought Trott was a natural opener anyway so wouldnt surprise me if they went down that route.......

    Bad boy Warner was in the news again, this time for trying to punch Joe Root in a pub. Again he's admitted being in the wrong.
    It's a shame that our top team is represented by a lot of dipshits - Clarke, Watson and Warner are the supposedly top 3 men in the country for captaincy, yet all 3 lack real character.
    The only sport i can think of with similar issues for Aus is our male tennis stars since Pat Rafter - Phillipoussis, Hewitt and Tomic.

    And... Less than 4 weeks til Ashes begins

    Funniest quote, "Warner gets off to a good start on tour, gets a root early"

    Ricky Ponting to retire from all forms of cricket in October.

    End of a legend!
    Was a true winner. Absolutely hated losing!
    But what a run scorer.

    England thre it away

    Cook looked awful opening

    Bopear and Morgan with decent partnership

    Made some terrible decisions under pressure though to give away wickets

    Bell "out" decision from 3rd umpire was a joke

    Suppose they did well to get to final though - India always favourites

    Mickey Arthur sacked as head coach of the Aussie cricket team 2 weeks out from The Ashes kicking off.

    We are a joke from the top down, absolutely embarrassing.

    He should have never been picked as our coach, fucking obvious as fuck to me, hes fucking sth african!!!!! But once you stupidly pick him, you have to stick with him Cricket Australia, fuck me. Or fuck him off immediately after the homework debacle, not hang onto him and dump him 2 weeks before the biggest trophy in world cricket.

    Australian cricket at its lowest ebb in my lifetime, and as I've said before, we still haven't hit bottom yet......
