A cricket thread for NeWDiS 🦗



If so many Saffas weren’t playing County Cricket over here on Kolpak deals, their strength in depth would be ridiculous.


<3 Rabada. Can’t believe De Kock is only 24 too. Both are going to be around for a decade.

This afternoon’s game has the potential to be very exciting.


Are all the IPL lads back now?


Yup. Stokes just in time to miss the final I think. His side lost by one run.


Fuuuuuuu! This might be a really hot take so brace yourself, but I reckon Stokes might’ve been able to make that run.


Quite. Talk about trying to prove you’re not a one-man-team and then failing by a whisker.


Not really a fan of the IPL, but it does seem daft that the English players got called back before the finals. In the long run, does it do Ben Stokes (and England) more good to experience a high pressure semi final and final, or do some training in Spain with the other England guys? If he needs to re-acclimatise to English conditions, well, isn’t that what these one-dayers are for for every other country too?

In other news, I don’t think there’s a batting lineup I would take over England’s at this moment in time. Bowling… not so much.


Stokes did so well in the last high pressure final he was in…


yeah, that’s got to be extremely frustrating for the SA cricket board.


He could do with the practice then!

To be honest, I’ve completely stopped caring either way in the 15 minutes since I posted that, from my already very low level of caring. There’s actual cricket on now!

Not far off.

England are looking pretty soft here.


Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.


@discobot help the England batting


@discobot Can you get an 8 sided dice, with 1-6, a ‘.’ and a ‘W’ on it?

We can play cricket then


Replace the ‘5’ with another ‘1’ and we’re talking
