    1st Test New Zealand v Australia Feb 29-Mar 4 0830hrs @ the Basin Reserve

    Other than his ego, what's the justification for a batter who has displayed declining reactions in the past few years (and who depends on his eye to a greater extent than most), to be shunted up to a position where reactions are everything.

    Play Nice Scott Morrison in the Multiverse of Ministries.

    It also shows that if Dutton was dumb enough to get played by Morrison, then he's in no way qualified to be PM.

    Pretty much an ideal result. Belting first half with starting line-up and then mass changes afterwards. Interesting to see Torpey get the nod over Raso. I like Raso's pace but a couple of the cut-backs Torpey delivered from long crosses, taking the ball in mid-air, I couldn't see Raso doing...

    India did but there's a bit of a gap between Ashwin and Hartley in ability.

    Have looked at replacing your ducted gas with electricity? We''re pretty much the same, got ducted gas as a legacy from when the house was built, don't use it much. Not sure about the costs.

    It's a downside of Bazball. Everyone gets excited by the run rates but if you're only making an average score and doing it in 2 sessions, it gives the other team more time to bat slow and bat long. India in India is just the side to do it.

    The onward march of T20

    Probably because it's near impossible to maintain a fan base. Soccer works because teams play in one place for 9 months and because the same players take to the pitch each time. With the franchises in different cities, fans would have to re-learn their team every few months.

    The onward march of T20

    Good piece - not sure how they're going to enforce the solutions. Play for match fees and bonuses? Can't see players accepting that - much better to be like Joe Root, have a few months off in the IPL on full pay while not playing. There's way too much money sloshing around in cricket now for...
