    Labuschagne's dismissal means his series average has plummeted to a pedestrian 235.5.

    I still smile when I think of Jason Gillespie on air a few years ago with Mark Waugh on Triple M radio commentary. Dizzy was in a particularly mischievous mood - the topic of conversation was that miraculous double century as a night watchman, and he says, "Junior - when I reached the 160's, I...

    One might accurately describe this bowling as "right arm over the fence".

    No South Australian batsman has ever scored a Test double century in Adelaide - go Travis!!!

    And that single creates a new 4th wicket stand for Australia against the West Indies. I guess the next point of interest is, can these 2 both reach 200?

    It's probably not the point, but if any of our players are dumb enough to do anything untoward again, they'll deserve a life ban.

    It's a joke. I'm not saying we should get rid of the Big Bash, but pleeeeeeeeease make it shorter. 14 games per team is ridiculous - cut it in half, and devote more time to giving Shield batsmen an opportunity to stake their claim for upcoming overseas tours.

    Labuschagne becomes just the 3rd batsman (after Gavaskar and Mohammed Yousuf) to score 3 consecutive centuries against the West Indies. Is he lucky at times? Of course he is, but he's also bloody effective, and the Windies bowlers will be having nightmares about him.

    Australia has been batting for more than 19 hours in this series, and Cameron Green still hasn't had a hit. I wonder if he still remembers how to hold a bat :-).

    Competition Sweet Summer League 2022/23: Round 1 Match Threads

    You sound as confused as Pixie Ann Wheatley, while she was interviewing Dermott Brereton. She even got his name wrong when she asked, "Kermit - I believe that you used to play at half forward. Does that mean that you weren't good enough to be a whole forward?"
