Got a couple months worth of weird crammed into one evening tonight. My mates wife was in town for a creative dance performance and she invited me and my wife along. There were only about thirty people in this very small venue, and the first performance consisted of a heavy set girl coming out dressed in plastic bags. I knew immediately I was in serious danger of breaking out into uncontrolled laughter so I immediately began thinking about very sad things, like our forward line entries. She then starts swaying with her eyes closed before ripping open a bag above her head which resulted in molasses pouring all over her face and hair. She then started crying before walking out of the theatre into a busy downtown Vancouver Street. Thought provoking stuff. Of course 90% of the audience thought it was amaze balls. Then to top it off, my mates wife came out topless for her performance so I tried furiously to avoid looking at her tits for a solid 30 minutes.

Wow, swimming in molasses and Tits, Jack Watts, eat you heart out! Tell the truth you dirty bas***d, your missus had to punch you on numerous occasions.

It all felt weird. The ‘crowd’ were enraptured by it though. The questions and comments from the audience following the show were very amusing.

some of his answers are head scratchers
fu** me. I've never had less confidence in any of our coaches as I now have after seeing this. Ariana Grande over Taylor Swift? fu** off mate.

Harry Potter can get stuffed too. Alistair Clarkson, That West Coast Guy, Richmond Coach, all of them have flags. All of them voted for Lord of the Rings. Not a great sign for Goodwin.

(FWIW I'm on team Kanye too tho)

That being said Goodwin came across ok I thought. Hinkley seemed like an absolute bore.

He needs to rotate the strike more instead of dead batting half the deliveries, but if he isn't doing it now, he's not ever going to do it.
Yeah Bevan and Hussey used to be able to switch tempos, brilliant and noodling the balls into gaps for 2s and 3s without risk and then upping the tempo later.

Was the discussion about being a number 3 or having too many dot balls in a recovery
Number 3s don't do recoveries in the same way though, do they? I believe the conversation was originally about wasting deliveries but I'd consider getting bowled out in the first 30 overs a bigger waste of deliveries. Khawaja scored 56 off 77 at a SR of 72 (Bevan had a SR of 74) after Maxwell got out (which is roughly when Bevan would be expecting to come in to bat). That's a pretty decent recovery.

Bevan and less so Hussey played in lower scoring eras. A 250 score in Bevans day was a tough chase although these English wickets are probably about 270 par looking at em

Just don't understand what you're not happy about - the fact that Khawaja isn't Bevan or Hussey or the fact that he faced 120 deliveries when the rest of the top 6 could only muster up 51 off 77 deliveries, which incidentally is a worse strike rate than what Khawaja managed. Esp given the pitch is very clearly a minefield to bat on after the game on it on Tuesday, and even Taylor and Williamson (who tried to up the antieand then got out) whom are significantly better batsmen than Khawaja have operated at SRs around 50 for most of today. Batting for as long as Khawaja did on this wicket is no mean feat. Game would already be over if he hadn't done it.

I'm not unhappy at all. I chimed in on a discussion you blokes were already having. Khawaja doesn't rotate enough but I did say this might be a decent score. Certainly looks like it now
