As the topic heading suggests.

We will keep this on the main board for summer.

Usual BF rules apply and try not to take it too seriously. It’s meant to be a bit of fun.

fu**....

The weather forecast for tomorrow has been revised to 44c (both Geelong & Melbourne)

It will be Melbourne's hottest December day on record and the hottest day in Melbourne since Black Saturday

Take care tomorrow everyone

Alex Hales doing more in this innings that he did in his entire season for the Hobart Hurricanes. :rolleyes:

My life honestly.

Proud Geelong boy tonight.
Good to see such a poor crowd tonight. So many rejecting the hit n giggle farce format #T20isshit
Wait until January - we'll get a better crowd that night

It way against them getting a decent crowd tonight:
- first home game for Renegades & that really should have been at Marvel
- Vline train strike which would have made transport to the game more of a nightmare than normal and most likely kept a good portion of those considering coming from doing so

Can't dislike this enough.
Please people. Stay away from this abomination.

Absolutely despise T20.

😂

Just wait until both World T20 tournaments are played in Aus over the next 11 months - it's popularity will continue to grow

I enjoy watching the battle of a test match but I also understand the appeal off T20, especially for those with younger kids where an ODI or test match is just too long to keep their interest

The other really good thing about T20 is it's popularity with the younger generation - kids wanting to watch it & play it

Not sure how that can be a bad thing

Please jinx the rest of the team...
We've (canes) haven't the best of luck with the internationals.

Hale's and Tymal mill =trash

OH Shaw and Malik were somewhat disappointing but will give them a pass for some good games.

Can't even remember any others tbh.

Having said that Rava Naved back in the early days was pretty good. And of course ol m8 big Jofra Archer.

Sangakkara was awful. Probably the worst even except he gets a free ride because he is a legend.

Miller should be a good get this year. Not convinced on the Afghan spinner.
