    Expansion Apple Isle Showdown: Tas Govt threatens to end Hawks, North deals if no plan for 19th side

    If the Tasmanian cricket team can be as viable as it is whilst producing its fair share of international-standard cricketers then I'm positive a Tasmanian AFL team will provide the same impetus. Pretty sure the number of Tasmanians which represented Australia was almost zero prior to Tassie...

    World Test Championship Final.

    Gonna need to see some T20-esque batting tonight if a result is gonna happen.

    What ever happened to ?

    Anyone know what stopped Tim Ginever playing in the AFL?

    World Test Championship Final.

    That would be amazing. There would surely be no doubt about NZ's supremacy if they managed to pull that out of the bag!

    World Test Championship Final.

    Could very well happen. I was more thinking that if the bowlers can get the ball to hoop around some corners we could see some dramatic lollapses from both sides that has the potential to open the game right back up.

    World Test Championship Final.

    I have a feeling a result is still possible here.

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    I had nearly forgotten they had played that series recently. I guess I based my comment on the fact that Zimbabwe are due for a fairly big rebuilding phase, similar to how Ireland are currently fairing. Zim's rebuild began with the retirements of Cremer & Masakadza, & will sadly eventually see...

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    Looking good. I should have done the top 12. I have a feeling Afghanistan are a tier above both Ireland & the Zim-jims. Looking forward to seeing how they fare down here in a few months!

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    This is how I would currently rank the top 8-9 teams. 1. NZ 2. India 3. Australia 4. England = Pakistan 6. South Africa 7. Sri Lanka = West Indies = Bangladesh

    In that case, glad he's been staying fit since then.

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    Some of his bouncers last night were utterly vicious. Seems to have bucket loads of upper body strength. Can't really recall him suffering from many injuries either.

    Nortje was bowling some genuine heat last night. Has to be currently one of the fastest bowlers in the world.

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    That looks really good to me. Agree with you on Powell, he was probably the only Windies batsman to look like withstanding the Saffers last night. Dowrich probably deserves a run with the gloves as well. I'd wager he'd average a little bit more with the bat than da Dilva, but not sure who's the...

    What would your ideal Windies Test XI look like heading forward PhatBoy?

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    I'm really losing faith in Hope at Test level now. Part of me really wanted Bravo in there in place of Shai.

    Prediction - Gold Coast Suns will fold by end of 2022 season.

    For some reason the Gold Coast has never been a legit sports hub, in spite of its booming population. The NBL (Rollers/Blaze), A-League (Gold Coast Utd), ABL (Clippers) and even the NRL (Giants/Seagulls/Chargers) all at one time failed to establish a sustainable presence up there. Wouldn't be...

    I thought OShane Thomas would have been doing alright for himself these days. Haven't seen him much since the 2019 CWC.

    World Test Championship Final.

    Yeah, pretty underwhelming stuff. I would have liked to have seen a knockout comp between the top 8 sides. I believe it's possible to hold a Test championship & have it done & dusted in just over a month.

    2021 WI vs SA - the battle for world cricket supremacy (2 Tests, 5 T20Is)

    Good stuff from big Kemar in that second innings. Most certainly the best fast man the Windies have had since Ambrose/Walsh. That was also the first time I have seen van der Dussen play an innings of substance. Glad to see him amongst the runs.
