Has this game ever been in more a confused state.
It’s just unbelievable how things have deteriorated.
Australian management of sport generally is really poor, cricket, Rugby and NRL ...... just a joke.

Just run 11 bowlers out. They'll score more runs, and we'll have more chance of taking 10 wickets.

AJ Tye is pathetic. Never gets his line and length right. He’s hopeless under pressure and keeps costing us games. Turned a winning position into a losing one in an over.

Australia blowing it big time. Wides, no balls. Not a single yorker in sight. Zampa bowled us to a strong position and then Tye and Stoinis put up rubbish.

Stoinis finally gets it semi right helped by a Maxwell screamer. Everyone did okay. Except Tye.

It just staggers me. So many short balls angled down leg by bowlers who are supposed to be the best in the country. I have never seen Australian cricket so poor.

I saw a TV interview with Stoinos the other day. He walked out of a million dollar house and drove a Range Rover SUV. What’s he done? He’s average yet is living the dream. We have bog average cricketers being paid huge money because occasionally they can hit a ball into the grand stand.

I’ve loved and played cricket my whole life. I’m over it - we have ruined Australian cricket. Give me 11 blokes who will practice their art and perform in the test arena. That’s cricket. Not these pretenders that swing a bat and hope it connects.

Rant over ....... for now!!

Who cares about 20/20. It’s like complaining about the Tigers losing a 9’s match. The real stuff starts next week, the Test series.

I'm not holding out much hope in the test series. India will win a test series in Australia for the first time.
Not subcontinental team as ever won a test series here. However I think things will change this summer.

I care because it is destroying a generation of Australian cricketers.

were you guys thinking the same thing when ODIs started?

without t20, cricket dies. No one has time and effort to stand in the heat for 5 days and 30% of the time not even get a result. the world has moved past that.
