Spoke to a mate who is camping with his family and he told me of his first world camping problem:

“Bloody kangaroo knocked over my satellite dish and now Foxtel is out”.

I said that wasn’t he meant to be camping but he said that didn’t mean he had to miss any cricket 😂
Jeez that goes beyond glamming! Satellite Dish?

Renshaw...now there's a case of rewarding performance. :rolleyes:
They've screwed him over twice now.

He should never have been dropped and now they bring back him in when he can't score a run. They are setting him up to fail, like they did with Finch.

Sri Lanka wont offer much on the bowling side of things
We scored runs for fun against them

They have a couple of pretty talented batsmen though

Good time for Aussie to blood some youth

Lol. I really like that Billy Connolly line about Australian nasties. “I saw a sign that said “beware stingers”. I very much wanted to beware,trouble is I didn’t know if they were coming by land,sea or taxi”.

Alex Carey is pretty much the only current player in the Aussie team that gets me excited to watch.

Really hope he can cement his spot in the team for all forms of the game.

Edit: And he gets out one minute after posting this ffs.

Indians getting absolutely stomped in the first 5 overs.

3 for 4 after 3.5
I remember the days in the early 80’s when they’d cross back at 7pm after the current affairs show and you’d miss the first 6 overs.

Australia would generally be about 3/10 if playing the Windies. Darling, Wood and Laird back in the pavilion.

In Adelaide it kept going because of the half our time difference. We would either miss out on Gilli and Hado going nuts or Lee steaming in bowing 160km/h. JUST SO WE COULD WATCH ACA!! I’d call up C9 every time and have a whinge every time. No sympathy for free to air now it’s on fox. FiretrUCK em.

Never forget Perth had the ODIs on three hour delay for a while there.
