Helps to be from NSW.

Didn't Warner make a pair in the last Ashes test in Hobart?  Broad made him look like a Muppet, and it isn't the first time....I don't see how any other result is likely.  His o/s record is very ordinary, so is it reasonable to carry this bloke to whatever end point he wants?

Can't get brain damage? At least one side has banned headers at training.

And the theatrical component is pathetic, diving is a form of cheating.

Why does it cost a zillion bucks to register kids to play in this country?  Are those clubs then using this cash to pay senior players?  Where's all the money going - it doesn't sound like much is filtering back to development.

The usual pundits who have made a living bashing Australia and it's culture have been very quiet recently.  I wonder why.

800 or so Australians have died of COVID in the last 7 weeks.  It's fashionable to pot Dan and all things government ATM, but after having a family member go very close recently thank f### for our public health system is there.  It ain't perfect and it perennially struggles but it does help people.

I call total Bulldust on the value of the GP to Victoria and everyday Victorians.  No single politician or department has ever put out a realistic, rigorously determined figure that can be backed up with real data.

Amen brother.

We lost this tournament with the first three balls Starc bowled in the very first over.  We have never recovered.  When he is off he stinks and he is off far too often. He doesn't have a change of pace delivery, a major  weapon in the T20 fast bowlers kit.
Cummins has also bowled rubbish and dropped a vital catch.
The bloke who needed a run was Agar - we keep playing the same three Quicks when history has shown that changing them out, particularly from the mid point of a series works wonders

LP, it's a miracle that an exploration lease was granted over the ground you mention.  I'll have to get online see for myself.     But the chances of a company ever getting access to that ground are zero.  Not a snowballs chance in hell.  But the rents will still need to be paid on it, EIS and IA consultants will be required etc etc etc.  The alphabet soup of Vic Government bureaucracies will string them along and bleed them dry like leeches.
