    I thought it would be good to make a thread for all the cricket fans out there to discuss domestic and international cricket and post scores and results.

    Watching Tassie and queensland atm, tassie have a young quick Ben Hilfenhouse this guy is a complete weapon bowling 140kn plus every ball any cricket fans out there know much about him

    Yeah, I wish they were doing the Pura Cup too, atleast they're showing the final.

    I can understand why they're not showing the whole season though. They have to put other sports on too.

    Chris Gayle is in awesome form atm. The same can be said for Brian.

    What's Lou Vincent been playing like lately? He's got so much potential that bloke, the day he fulfils it, ill be a happy man.

    Exactly. I've seen him play some awesome knocks, but some really crap ones too.

    He's played some blinders against Sri Lanka.

    yeah gayle has started to mature as a batsman, last 1 or 2 years instead of coming out trying to dispatch every ball to the fence he as developed maturity in his batting with patience and in result is scoring frequent big scores. his bowling is also more than decent.
