    Re: World Cup Squad - 2019

    I got tickets to the warm up game on the 25th v England in Southampton. Absolute bargain so am taking the family for a grand total of 43.

    Also got tickets to the India, Sri Lanka, NZ and England round robin games so a big a month of cricket for me.

    I like the format of the tournament being everyone plays everyone rather than group games and super 6's etc.

    In terms of the squad, I am a little disappointed that Turner wasn't picked. Has real "X" factor. Would have preferred they did a wiat and see on Warner and Smith. Feel that after a great tour against Pakistan that they could upset the balance a little. Smith has hardly been turning it on in the IPL

    Re: World Cup Squad - 2019

    I went along to the Eng v Aust warm up game in Southampton. Result went Australia's way, but the game was played in a warm up spirit, with Australia resting Cummins and Starc and England subbing players out. That said positives for Australia:

    Smith - his 116 was faultless. For a guy who has missed 1 months of cricket he middled every ball
    Warner - batted well, just go frustrated and tried to push the tempo
    Khawaja - batted well and had a good partnership with Smith. I would go with him ahead of Marsh
    Carey - like his innings gave a real push towards the end without the fireworks. He just middled them to the boundary
    Richardson - bowled well. Reckon it is out of him and Berendorf for the rd seamer spot
    The Spinners - bowled well in tandem really tied down the English batsmen
    Stoinis - his death bowling was great. Not convinced with him as a batsman though.

    Negatives -

    Smith and Warner will cop a LOT of heat from he crown this Summer and at some grounds (ie Edgebasten and Headingly) the banter is unlikely to be as tame as it was at Southhampton
    Stoinis batting in he middle order - he really is an all or nothing batsman. He can hit the ball well and far, but he doesn't run singles so he can be a liability eating up dot balls

    Noticed Paul Collingwood was even fielding at one stage.

    I have England slight favourites, they've taken aggressive batting to the next level over the last 18 months.

    Agreed! It's why I still enjoy the ODI format. The ICC needs to make the in-between four years a real lead up to the showcase, similiar to what FIFA does with World Cup qualification.

    Oh well, sa la vie. It is what it is and if a bunch of deplorables want to shout stuff from the crowd then it says more about them and their knowledge of the game than anything else. Just ignore it.

    As far as sledging from the opposition goes, well you do have a bat in your hands...
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    South Africa has a very weak batting lineup. Heavily rely on De Cock, Amla and Faf and 2 of them failed. Archer could well get the most wickets in the tournament. He looks deadly every time he rolls his arm over.
    I will never see #16 the same!!
