    Disagree on your first point. Whilst the fact that there are fuck all warm up games played on tour and they are over before the touring side has had a chance to warm up means they never really get their eye in, losing on tour should not be a fait accompli. We only just retained the ashes in England.

    New Zealand are abysmal in this series. Their bowlers are dead trundles and their batters, apparantly amongst the best in the world, have barely been better than Pakistan. Its men v boys out there.

    Cricket as a sport is an embarrassment. Where is the competition?

    It's a walk in the park, Australia could put out their B team and still win against these joke teams like Pakistan, New Zealand etc.

    Yeh took us a while to find a reliable no. 3, and Labs form the last 6 months is Bradman like. Still amazes me he only averages about 30 at state level.

    Don't normally comment on cricket - after watching chn 7 had to turn sound down - cannot cope with the commentary of Slater n Mcgrath. Startted watching Fox coverage - the commentary is actually entertaining at times. The female commentator, knows her stuff as well - not cringeworthy like the "quota" commentary in the Rugby League especially on nine. I need a life!

    Totally disagree,

    The big bash is as interesting to me as Aussie Rules.

    Test matches first.

    ODI's second.

    20/20 at international level 3rd.

    Sheffield Shield 4th.

    Finally big bash 5th.

    If I had too put in order it would be like this..

    ODI’s First

    Twenty 20’s second

    Big Bash third

    Tests Dead last (or wipe them completely) so boring,drawn out and unexciting.

    I like all the existing forms. My favourite is 50 overs. But i still rate tests, and 5 day tests not 4. We would get too many draws. Not all series will be as one sided as our last couple and finish early.

    What i am not up for is proposed further versions of the game like this stupid 100 ball idea.
