Even more evidence to check the books after that result.....cold pastie to beef Wellington overnight,  sure,  we believe that one Virat.
Yep the Mr nice guy ICC award winner seemed a bit more interested as did his troops, I liked the old Kholi better, this new nice guy stuff is doing my head in.
Good to see Rabada suspended as well over in South Afrikaans , abusing batsman, screaming at them, he has been allowed to get away with it too long. Poms doing a number on the Saffies with Stokes leading the way along with wonder kid Pope, the quota system has really stuffed SA cricket as they cant seem to consistently pick their best teams.

I knew you'd be on to that EB :)  They're nothing if not transparent.  And untouchable

How does Kholi run down the middle of the wicket for his entire innings, then the moment he is dismissed they warn the other batsmen?

Crap umpiring, or corrupt umpiring?

Great to see Carey getting a run in the T20s, this bloke is the real deal.

SAffies were a joke!

Saffies are in real trouble, their domestic good players are leaving for Kolpak contracts in the English county comps or the t20 comps around the world and they have lost all their star players due to retirement with no new ones on the horizon. Add the ridiculous quota system and they are at rock bottom.

Mitch Marsh, when will they learn!  :-[

The Marsh brothers are an enigma, they can hit the ball out of the park, score big totals at a rapid rate, they seem to have all the talent in the world.

But they both start an innings batting like they have a stutter, and this slow starting habit seems to put the brakes on our teams momentum every time, no matter what they end up scoring as individuals, they exist in a space that transfers pressure to those around them. They seem to play cricket without sacrifice!

I feel sorry for this English girl being lambasted over her failure to Mankad an opponent.

It's unfair, Mankad has been so stigmatised by the media it's become impossible for the bowlers to act on it and whoever is batting will just ignore the rules.

Some large portion of the quick singles are illegitimate, and as such so are the batting records!

Both Marsh brothers have failed to live up to the hype that comes with having Marsh as a surname...Mitch has always been our hope of having what we crave and thats the next Flintoff or Stokes and always comes up short when it counts mainly due to a poor technique. Shaun teases and gives you something every 6th innings but has also disappointed when its tough conditions and a good technique and strong mind are whats required and he usually gets dismissed with a poor lazy shot designed for a flat track.
A very decent catch to dismiss M. Marsh though this latest innings and he was a tad unlucky..

It's no way to win when she was given the same latitude when batting.

Cam Green is a gun, best prospect for Australian cricket for a long time

Good technique suited to the longer formats, needs some county cricket experience to get used to the moving ball, handy he can bowl 140k but looks a bit injury prone so I'd be seeing him more as a batsman in that No 6 slot who bowls everynow and then but not fulltime.
We always tend to look for the Stokes type allrounder and always end up disappointed...

Apparently his back injury is very similar to what Pat Cummins had, and the correction he needs to make to his action is also similar to what Cummins had to do. I have faith that we learned a lot from that, and we'll be able to get him back to bowling at his best, even if it takes a couple of years to get there. Agree he should spend a couple of winters over there facing the Duke ball in helpful conditions
