The USA look pretty formidable 13 -0 v Thailand .Ten goals in the second half was just rude.Arrogant even .Or are we just talking about cricket here.

For some reason, the Random Chat Thread is the soccer chat thread and cricket is segregated. I suspect racism, a lot of non-white powerhouse countries in the cricket world. Some people can't handle that.

HoneyBadger35 is to blame. We shouldn't have added the clause that POTY winners can segregate any thread they want.

If Warner + Smith are going to start reclaiming the love of the Aussie public, they need to put on a massive partnership right now.

No boooing of Warner and Smith from the Pakistan cricketing public. Much more tolerant for some reason

Maxwell in early.Looking to make lots of runs here in the mid innings I reckon.Wahib and Amir are pretty good bowlers the rest are struggling dont know if Pakistan should save their best two till the end.Wahib is a sensation I reckon.One of my all time faves.

And that's why Maxwell doesn't bat higher up the order more often. Maybe this WC will shut the prictorians up about how badly mistreated he is. As i wrote earlier can't be trusted, continually gets out early playing dumb shots. Av of 32 says it all.

Wow bit of ass puckering towards the end.

That Maxwell run out to finish the game is as good as you will see.

I really dont get the Australian selectors. Finally make the call to replace Zampa but then to bring in Richardson? Of course he got slapped all over the park. In contrast Bergendorff is the absolute perfect seam bowler to come in and suppport Cummins and Stark by building scoreboard pressure. Otherwise stay with spin and recall Lyon. Richardson makes no sense.

Its also time to make the call on Khawaja. He's an opener or he isnt in the team. Why persist and throw our balance all out? He has no second gear. Smith and Marsh have to come in at at 3 and four, Maxwell at five (or higher if we are off to a flier). MMarsh or Stoinis at six then Carey and a handy wacker in Coulter Nile coming in at eight...

Don't even understand why Kane Richardson went in the first place. Plenty of bowlers who deserved a look before he did. Stanlake, Meredith, Cutting to name a few. I even would've sent Tye before Richardson.
