Tahir's celebrations are awesome. Of course I would hate them if he was an aussie, but whatever. SA's bowling was insane for what was basically a second string fast bowling line up. Could be a tough next 5 weeks.
36 required of last 2 overs and Sri Lanka did it. Must have been great day for Lankan fans. Don't understand why this series was scheduled? Anyway, because of work missed all the matches today. Seems NZ-SA was also an exciting one.
Meanwhile Australia register a mammoth 469/7 dec against a resonably good India A team. Smith and Marsh both got 100s. I expect Smith to score 500 runs but it could be career changing series for Marsh. Like that of Hayden in 2001. Seems Aussie are preparing well.
"I have a hole where my heart should be, and nowhere else to go."
Don't watch IPL but it seems the selection process is a bit strange. Like they always overpaid Yuvi. They picked Sanga for what reason I don't know when he used to fail every time. The windies players usually do well. Guptill is pretty good in t-20 thing so could have been picked. IPL and other leagues should try to bring players from Ireland, Afghanistan and Holland.
Note: We have 5 users from previous forum. Tafe and hamsterman have joined in from Aus and NZ. Is Salter not coming? The place would be much better with him here. I had talked to Spike and he might join later.
Last post I read of Salts he said he wasn't joining a replacement forum. In words to remember him by, he then informed the person he was talking to, some gormlesd twat on the Politics board, that it guaranteed that he would never again talk to someone as stupid as he was.

First Post on the 'new boards'. Feels kinda strange. I for one hope Salter and Rohan come over too. AJ, Hamster, Tafe, Man (with no shame) - I come in peace, no more pitch doctoring talk!
Still laughing at Australia's T20I travails. Still don't know how they lost that one, those last 3 overs saw some of the worst bowling and fielding tactics I've ever seen in international cricket.
I see NZ still are clueless against Leg Spinners. Tahir had a field day !
Aus v India A - smart work from the Indians. Played a virtually all pace attack on a hard fast bouncy deck. Of course Australia played well on it. It'll be nothing like the conditions facing the in the Test.
