Winter cricket thread then 🦗

cricket!

#1

less than a month after the summer season ends the winter season begins. bit hectic this scheduling innit. saw on cricinfo that some of the all formats players are playing international cricket 1 out of every 3 days of the year. that’s pretty crazy.

this is The Big One though! five ODIs against the might of Sri Lanka.


#2

8th in the world for ODIs. Not holding out much hope of a cracking limited overs series.


#3

Apparently new Zealand (proud brave island nation) have only played about 3 matches in 7 months? What’s all that about


#4

aye, no matthews, no mendis, malinga looks on his last legs. could be a bit of a drubbing this series.


#5

they lose money on every match they play that isn’t against the big 3. shitter innit.


#6

They should move closer.


#7

Just discovered Tailenders. Got a lot of time for Jimmy, and the Maccabees, so quite like it. Wasn’t a huge fan of Greg James, but he’s good.

What’s the Michael Vaughan/bit spicy stuff about?
