Who was it on this thread that said anything we do against the Sri lankains does not count because they are not a test worthy team. The same team that just bowled over the South Africans at home 2 nil. Of course it counts what we did against them

Well word around the traps, nn strode to the wicket at 2/65 requiring a further 198 from 21 overs or if you like 9.42 per over for an unlikely victory.

When he left the field retired 50 not out !!!!!! in a knock that included six boundaries and a six against second placed Springvale who put all their, fielders on the fence, the locals had they known, would he is sure partied well into the early hours.

Game on, cracks started appearing in Springvale's armour, Doveton 3/187 ( yeah nn couldn't believe it either apparently) alas they got to 9/251 with nn not out 57. Great to see him makes some runs when finals weren't a possibility, heaven forbid he ever makes a decent tally when the heats on.

Nice to see Finch in the runs - Kawajah excellent, Maxwell very handy, Marsh can fugg right off. here comes the crash? 320 a must to win this but again the middle order struggle.
Did you see the Finch LBW decision? It hit him in line and to my eye seemed to be tailing toward leg, which clearly both batsmen felt too, they reviewed the decision and the tracker had the ball going back the other way and hitting middle stump! It was clearly BS but no comment was made at all.

In the break just now, BJ brought it up and made it clear he thought it was bullshit.

I also thought it turned a bit to leg after it pitched.

Hanscombe decision was poor, too.

It's been all over twitter. Check it out, major error from Hawkeye. Still think it would have clipped leg.

Wow pretty good chase down by Australia! Set 359 and slipping to 2-12 they get there thanks to Uzzie Handscomb and a great innings by Turner with excellent support by Carey at the end
Pretty good? Probably one of our greatest ever one day wins. Amazing result.
