Very glad I watched every ball of that Stars innings live, just luckily happened to be at a sports bar for dinner and we were the last people there haha

As exhilarating as the Stars' innings was, it pretty much killed any interest in the outcome of the game.

The more I see that Evans catch from the right angle....reckon it’s the best.
Symonds said to judge those catches , you may have to watch all a few times.


Reflecting back on Abbotts catch was made more difficult because he had to catch that from the shadows.


Im starting to lean towards Abbotts more and more

Hurricanes would be the most comfortable at the MCG. Makes them significant favourites in my opinion with the Strikers hittingc balls straight to the outfield.

interesting scenario, if Perth win the Qualifer, what crowd would we get for a final at the Marvel?

reckon lucky to get 10k. But could see a few of the Sydneysiders coming down to Melbourne to watch the game. (assuming Thunder or Sixers make it)

Hurricanes just batting out the overs which makes sense. Still might make 170-175 which is a solid effort in normal circumstances. Trying to get some of their batters into form.

Hurricanes v Strikers should be a great game, a pity there will only be a few thousand people there at the MCG.
Does South Australia have border restrictions or something? Thought this was a game set for Adelaide Oval. Reckon you get a crowd of 20,000-22,000 or thereabouts for a Final there surely.

No, Cricket Australia want to limit the chances of players getting covid which I think is fair enough.

Would be a good time for the Strikers to get their first ever win at the MCG

For obvious reasons we've probably only played the Stars there right?

It amazes me how much the captains have to explain to the bowlers what to bowl because they're not smart enough from a cricket perspective to work it out. I remember it was the same with Finch on the mic last year and now Maxwell has had to tell Elliott what balls will work to David.
