    BBL|08 Game 11: Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Thunder @ Blundstone Arena

    Absolutely. Leading Shirld run scorer - 2x50s in 3 BBL games. Unfortunately, we can't drop Paine because he's skipper. So they wont pick Wade, to avoid the possible selection controversy.

    BBL06, Match 30, Heat vs Renegades @ Gabba 7.40PM

    Not true - sure, it's the number of overs that is most critical. However, if you score a single to win the game, your final score is calculated as. for example, 161 runs off 17.3 overs. If you hit a six when scores are level, your score is listed as 166 off 17.3 overs. If you hit a boundary...

    BBL06, Match 30, Heat vs Renegades @ Gabba 7.40PM

    Seriously - potentially, the run rates are so close, and the margins so fine, it could come down to the last ball. If a team is chasing and going to win comfortably, the final placings could depend on whether they hit the winning runs by a boundary (and so win by 4 or 6 runs), or just push the...

    BBL06, Match 30, Heat vs Renegades @ Gabba 7.40PM

    So first thing for the Gades - sixers must lose - if they win, Gades are out. There is no way both the Scorchers and Canes can finish below the Gades - one or the other. If sixers lose: For the Hurricanes to jump above the renegades (using an average score of about 160) - they either have to...

    BBL06, Match 24; Renegades vs Hurricanes @ Etihad

    True. Anyone who can deliberately hit the second last ball off the outside edge for 4, and then follow it up with a leading edge that plops over mid-off while trying to play a flick through mid-wicket is the man I want in a crisis. Look, the whole game has occasions of luck. The Renegades had...

    BBL06, Match 24; Renegades vs Hurricanes @ Etihad

    I agree - lost 3 in the last over. One - he winds up bowling himself - not a recognised bowler. Now I know Bravo got injured, but Cooper was surely a better bet (only bowled one over for 4 runs). Another game - he winds up with Pattinson bowling the last - when he's the most expensive bowler...

    Club vs Country: Losing BBL players to Australian team

    Pretty much, yeah. The public has shown over the past couple of seasons that ODI cricket (except for the World Cup) is not that attractive a prospect. Some of the ODI crowds have been pretty poor. Last summer in Perth the 4 BBL crowds were 20K, 20K, 19K, and 20K. The single ODI that was in...

    BBL06, Match 12, Stars vs Renegades @MCG 6.10PM

    There should be a requirement for commentators to know the rules of any sport they are calling. That was pretty poor, that none of the three commentators understood the Duckworth-Lewis well enough to explain to the viewers how the par score was reached and WHY wickets weren't a factor in this...

    BBL06 match 06, Hurricanes vs Stars @ Hobart

    I think Tait is worth a go - when he's on form and fit (like, not now:p), his speed is valuable, and can win a game. But you should never bowl him in the powerplay. The reason they bowl a lot of spinners during the PP is the the batsman has to make the pace in the shot. They have to hit a good...

    Seriously, Mark Waugh is a dead-set moron. "oh his foot is bouncing up after the stumping" No, you idiot, they're cycling the replay.

    Sheffield Shield Round 5: Tas v Vic @ Blundstone Arena

    Vics should go for this. Tassie is on the bottom of the table. No real harm if they snatch a win here. But huge bonus for the Vics if they get it.

    Matador BBQs One-Day Cup 2016

    I reckon it's still advantage NSW. They'll know how much to get and how hard they have to go. The Vics have to go for 380-400 (and are on track). If they collapse for 250-ish, NSW can basically cruise (if you block for 50 overs at North Sydney. you'll still make 200+). If Maxwell gets lucky...

    Sheffield Shield Final: SA v VIC @ Gilderol Stadium, Glenelg

    Well done to all the Vics - Handscombe, Dean and Holland in particular. It's a shame their performances will be overshadowed by Mick Lewis and his pathetic cheating. I just feel sick about that and I can't really enjoy the win as I should.
