Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Awesome game between NZ and Srilanka. Easily the best match in this tournament.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

What a game NZ vs Sri Lanka was, congrats to Sri Lanka, YOU BASTARDS, lol. As soon as we were 0/4 off 2 overs, I thought that was going to be the deciding factor in the game & it proved to be the case. There are only 6 overs of powerplays in this format & to score only 4 runs off a third of those overs was a disgrace. NZ probably have more lower order power hitters than any other team in the tournament, so why not send two of them in to bat first & give them a license to swing as hard as they can?
Open the batting with NATHAN McCullum & Southee, whos jobs are to not block at all & play nothing but attacking shots. If they hit a few, that's awesome, but if they don't & lose their wickets, there is no real damage done. Southee didn't even bat & Nathan did fuck all, so I'd prefer to lose those 2 wickets in the power play overs.
Taking the gamble of getting off to a flier with "unimportant" big hitters, which may or may not occur, then letting our most competent batsmen handle the non-powerplay overs is a far better option IMO. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
But anyway, what a game & once again, congrats to Sri Lanka, you bastards!!

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Amazing, entertaining match between SL and NZ. I thought the game was over qwhen they were 62/0 in 5 overs. But, NZ made a damn good job of coming back at the Lankans.

Oh, and Taylor should have manned up and played the Super Over. My have made a difference.

England floundering as usual while Gayle does Gangnam style .

Great comeback by Morgan and Hales. Brought it closer than anyone imagined !

Overall, a very very entertaining day of cricket. That is how it should be.

Yeah I was quite pleased for that new opener the Windies have, he played some rather unorthodox shots, but I guess that's the way the game is going.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

@ Pakistan, wouldn't know what seam bowling is in this matchup. All spin. That's T20 for you.

-----------------------

Caught a few hours of the Shield game today at Bankstown. NSW are looking pretty good so far this season, Pup batted well and our bowlers were really tidy and narrowly missed out on enforcing the follow on. With the rain about, it'll be a drawn game, but nice to see a good start to the season for once.

South Africa choked again lol. They had Pakistan for 77/7, but still managed to screw it up.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Wow what a game between Pakistan and South Africa. SA choked again. Great bowling from Pakistan to restrict SA to a low score but then Pakistan collapsed. They were dead and buried until Gul and Umar Akmal saved them. Fantastic match. SA had it their way up till 15 overs but then Gul and Akmal saved Pakistan. What a game. Pakistan vs India on Sunday is going to be a cracking game. De Villiers made some captaincy errors by not using his spinners after the 15th over. Gul came on late to bowl and bowled only 2 overs but he let his batting do the talking. Sensational. India vs Australia now, what a game this will be. What a tough group this is.

I really hope England beat NZ tomorrow. Don't want to see the defending champions being eliminated so soon.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

India getting absolutely thrashed by a far superior Aussie team. Why do they include these minnows? Pointless carnage against a rubbish team
