Based Bash tonight: Stars v Hurricanes
SA/Eng & AUS/WI both inevitable draws
>Only 86.2 overs had been bowled in the entire match by the end of day four, with West Indies still 7 for 248 in their first innings. Last time two straight days were washed out in Australia was also in Sydney, against Pakistan in 1989-90. The first two days of that Test were rained out without a ball being bowled, which led to a sixth day being added.
wow this is pretty accurate, a few American cities I can't comment on as I've never been there, Charleston, Portland and Guam. I don't think Davenport can really be compared to Alice Springs though.

everything is becoming clearer and clearer
if your "highlight" of the year was on this shithole then i genuinely feel sorry for you
not in a 'im trying to mock you' kind of way, I honestly just pity you and hope your life improves at some point
>England had been in the field for 211 overs - the longest for them since 1987
why did I get enjoyment out of reading that
Were Bread and Blanderson even hitting 115 kp/h by the end of it?
>The Women's Big Bash League has continued to gain strong support, with the Ten Network confirming it would move two of the remaining three matches to its main channel. The Sydney derby between the Sixers and the Thunder on Saturday January 16 will be shown on Channel Ten, as will the final on Sunday January 24, which will serve as part of a double-header with the men's final.
>The move comes after Ten moved last week's Melbourne derby to its main channel and was rewarded with impressive ratings figures, a peak audience of 439,000 viewers nationally and an average of 372,000. Other matches had been shown on one of Ten's digital multi-channels, but the network's sport executive David Barham said the WBBL was proving to be a hit.
wogball on suicide watch
>watching the WBBL
>they literally nurdle the ball around for singles and twos in the death overs
>120 is considered a good score
>women literally cannot dive to take any meme catches
I seriously cannot see the appeal, even over povertydive.
>yfw SBS buys rights to WBBL and scraps A-league coverage
i know im surprised myself
That last game was absolute dogshit. I could literally go see a far higher quality game by going down to the local oval and watching a grade game.
I can't explain why it is getting non-shit ratings (possibly because it is on before the mens game?), but the fact that it is and the fact that it is PTFOing /ayy/ is pretty damn funny.
The only explanation I can think of is this: It has the same quality coverage as the mens game. They use the same number of cameras, all the same gimmicks and are treating it extremely professionally. The ONLY other "professional" womens sport I can think of that has that is womens tennis. So even the quality of the game is poor, the quality of the coverage is still top-notch and maybe lots of girls are actually getting into it.
Even I wanted to watch Meg Lanning just to see what all the hype was about. Ditto Ellyse and Holly just to see how fast they bowl (110 kp/h lmao)
>H-H-H-HE SHOULD HAVE DECLARED!!!!
>T-T-T-T-THIS IS JUST CRUEL!!!!
Why are redditors such pussies, /cric/?
I fuck just about every good looking woman who looks twice at me. Over time I've developed a knack for getting an accurate portrait of what a woman looks like beneath her clothes.
>The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to appeal against the International Cricket Council-imposed provisional suspension of Yasir Shah for failing a dope test last November in the series against England. The 29-year-old leg-spinner was provisionally suspended by the ICC on December 27 after testing positive for chlorthalidone - a diuretic used to treat hypertension that is listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned list of masking agents.
>Another PCB official added that Yasir had intimated the board of having taken the medication to alleviate symptoms of hypertension. "Our team of legal and medical experts have advised to appeal the suspension on Yasir," the official told PTI. "We will submit a strong case to the ICC indicating that Yasir took the medicine unintentionally for a high blood pressure ailment and that there was no intention of using banned substances to enhance his performance."
Pakistan on suicide watch
literally no idea what you're talking about, they got plowed in the world cup final
I sure as fuck hope you're not talking about /poog/. That is unironically about as relevant about netball. And if you're going to include those "spoorts" you may aswell include the League "World Cup" and the touch footy "World Cup"
need to get extra salt to make them decent nowadays

on another note, this is an old as fuck filename
how the fuck do we stop kiwis from posting in our threads?
this shit is fucking annoying now. the majority of the posts are by kiwis and it's mainly shitposting but aussies still get blamed for being shitposters.

This is some the highest degree of Poo Peeland delusion I've ever seen
he UNIRONICALLY thinks Craig is as good as Lyon
K E K
NOT EVEN statschink would be stupid enough to say that
Despite some bad form in Australia, I think he is the best spinner in the world currently.
There is hardly many (if ANY) world class spinners right now. He's DEFINITELY better than Lyon. And you have to be a SEEEEEEETHING new cunt casual not to agree. His performances in England put him among the top of the current lot.
How can you be an Australian soccer fan and hate your own league?
"Literally" why I never played cricket as a kid. I mean having to bend the rules just to make it more inclusive for everyone is just retarded. The only sport I played like that when I was a kid was basketball. I remember our team was killing it up by 20 points within the first ten minutes and the refs said "OK guys now you can't go past the half way line when they have the ball". After that I was pretty much like yeah fuck this shit.
>iv'e had sex with over 100 women
paying for it doesn't count
From all the anger visible in your badly thought out and typed post, I doubt it.
Yeah I do miss my ex, she was beautiful and an angel. You upset that someone on here experienced real love?
>it's a people actually take the time out of their lives to reply to reality check episode
Of course not. I pity you. Its a weakness. Girls need strong emotions to survive, and you got caught up in that shit. Satan would be ashamed of you. Now your stuck on some shithole reminiscing about a lost love who undoubtedly despises you
There are no metaphors, only facts. One of my hockey coaches tried to abuse me when I was a kid though, if that's what you wanted to hear. Fortunately no anal penetration took place, that could have really messed with my head. I hate pedos with a passion and would "literally" kill one without fear of the consequences.
I believe it will look like he has done a lot, but in Reality it will all due to be the team underperforming in previous years combined with a healthier squad.
I'm sure she still loves me and is just undecided about whether she can forgive me for everything I've done.
Being able to admit when you are in love is strong minded you fucking idiot. You're thinking of the time you wrote some stupid love poem to some fat bitch you were infatuated with. Know the difference.
>knows rc is a made up persona

>"People" believe Martin Bryant actually had the skills and the intellect to go on the rampage that he allegedly carried out
Has there been a more poorly formulated false flag in Australian history?
I could smash the shit out of any kiwi /cric/ poster in a fight.
Probably every aussie too except walkbro. Roosterwoman would get close simply because he's almost as muscular as me but I'm a lot smarter than him.
>not getting involved in tax fraud
Except I "literally" did nothing wrong you fucking idiot.
>having your emotions lead you astray
I have "literally" never done this other than to cheat on my gf. As I said, everyone has their crutch.
Holy shit. Even when my evidence is right in front of you, you still ask for more. If you really care you would check the archive for last night's thread where I commented on the Perth v Strikers "game".
Brevik was far more trained in handling weaponry and had weaponry that made killing "easier".
The official police report on Bryant is just unbelievable. Pulling off a Beirut Triple on the driver of a car down the street from him? It's totally illogical.
Sports are meant to be played though. Obsessing over teams and pretending that sporting events are anything more than cash grab is the second greatest blue pill the jews have made most young men swallow, only behind pornography as a legit means to satisfy yourself.
they have Muirhead in the squad but he is absolutely kill
Hogg isn't even close to their biggest problem, their 3-7 is absolutely dire and that got exposed lastnight. They're going to collapse once Smarsh goes, wont even finish top4
the cricket is basically over by then isnt it? Only pointless ODI's and the arse-end of the BBL
so yeh ill probably bandwagon and pretend to be a tennis expert to trigger the 3 autists who actually follow that "spoort"
That may have been me, i leave the thread for a bit and come back and post like three or four times in a row, so I'm always waiting for the timer to go down whilst I'm reading the next post
>Except I "literally" did nothing wrong you fucking idiot.
Then why don't you come back to Australia if you did "nothing wrong"
Based Roosterman hasn't killed himself yet lads
I missed the deadline for membership so I'm out for this year again, but I've been doing a bunch of net practice so I'm not completely out of touch next season. I bowled to some of the guys in the club B team and didn't bowl too many wides which was nice
first season not playing :(
I used to play Sydney 1st grade, I can't post my stats because statscunt will just reverse search them on mycricket and doxx me.
And I haven't played since my knee op so I'm probably dogshit now. I can't go street running anymore and my gf UNIRONICALLY has better cardio fitness than me now which is fairly emasculating.
>Former Captain of the Kangaroos and NRL Legend Steve Price now runs a fucking dairy in Waipu
KEK This is what you are reduced to when you retire from Plebgue.
GOATie McGOD is literally on the board of directors for 8 different multi million dollar companies and has a broad investment portfolio.
He spends his days as a commercial helicopter pilot transporting people through the beautiful scenery of the South Island and has turned down offers from various airlines to fly their planes.
This is true, I've worked for the federal government and the NSW state government, 5 people doing a job it would take 1 person.
I had to leave, the amount of entitlement these people had was outstanding, sack the fucking lot and contract it out.
Looks like you didn't even read it la'
Nowhere did he actually say Craig was as good as Lyon, just that he doesn't think Craig is as bad as people say he is. Personally I disagree because all his wickets are meme wickets, but the Lyon comparison is objectively understandable given the conditions they play in.
Reminder that this is a dying community on it's last legs. It has been reduced to "x on pooicide watch" and forced memery.
I hope you jump ship before it's too late, I know a captain is supposed to go down with it's ship but after pioneering most of au/sp/'s subreddits on 4chan, I don't have the energy to continue with the barrage of newcunts that have taken control of this sinking ship.
>Chris Gayle has denied allegations that he indecently exposed himself to a woman in Sydney during the 2015 World Cup. The Melbourne Renegades' chief executive Stuart Coventry, whose team Gayle plays for in the BBL, is also the subject of scrutiny by Cricket Victoria for labelling the claims as "opportunistic".
>When asked for his reactions to the allegations, Coventry said they were "opportunistic", Fairfax Media reported. "Whatever third parties come out and make comments about incidents that happened in the past have nothing to do with us," he said.
>Cricket Australia officials were believed to be privately fuming at Coventry's words on Wednesday morning, and Cricket Victoria chief executive Tony Dodemaide released a statement in late afternoon emphasising the status of the BBL as a competition designed to be welcoming to women. He went on to say that the comments attributed to Coventry were out of order.
>"Cricket Victoria and its BBL teams are committed to demonstrating that our sport respects girls and women and we're working incredibly hard to ensure that is the case," Dodemaide said. "We certainly don't condone the reported comments attributed to Stuart this morning and we're looking into it further."
Could Cucket Ausfailia be ANYMORE pathetic?
Seriously though, what is the actual point of this loser trying to impersonate me and my posting style? What's even more disturbing is that he's actually getting better at it, like he's practicing it in his free time. It's clear he's paying a lot of attention to my posts and posting style, and clearly making a lot of effort in writing his own.
Is his plan for people to think I'm a retard? I'm already hated by everyone on /cric/, so what are you really achieving?
I have no idea what his endgame is. Use your holidays more constructively you fucking retard. While the other 18 year olds you graduated high school with are out getting smashed and having a good time, you're at home impersonating a pseudo trip on a Taiwanese tapestry convention.
to be fair, he's fucking awful at it. It's pretty obvious you haven't been here all day and it's been AMS.
For one, you never namefag, by doing that he's basically telegraphing that he's just taking the piss.
Any of you cunts watch inside cricket just now? That faggot tabloid cunt craddock was acting like the whole """"""exposure""""""thing actually happened despite it being a completely unsubstantiated claim from an anonymous """ """woman"""""" that came at an incredibly suspiscously convenient time and then in the SA vs ENG segment i don't even think they mentioned Stokes' innings and instead just memed about the black midget quota cunts century
Is there a more reddit sports show in history?
If you weren't an ignorant /pol/tard you'd know that a full black scoring a century is a fairly big deal for South Africa given their history and that Stokes made 250 days ago and is now old news
Is Inside Cricket a weekly or daily show? If it's daily I get talking about Bavuma's hundred because it really is a big moment for SA cricket and gives hope to the dindu players.
If it's weekly though then ignoring Stokes is just fucked.
christ could you be more casual?
Good observation numbnuts
A.This is going on at 0300 my time so it's not like I make a habit of watching cricket. Cricket is shown 0% of the time on TV in the US.
Is there a concept of a "foul ball" like in baseball?
Don't really understand the recent ODI hate - the advantage it has over T20 is that you still need to slowly build innnings and partnerships, a fundamental part of the sport. "Conserving wickets until you can play like a T20" is a poor characterisation imho. I think you kids don't have attention spans anymore with your constant vidya and smartphones. Read Michael Bevan's autobiography if you want a taste of the beauty of the 50 over format.
Besides, it's not like when the BBL is on you ever post about the actual cricket, unless someone hits an exceptionally big 6, or a wicket falls.
>Is there a concept of a "foul ball" like in baseball?
No, although forcing a batter to "foul" can result in a catch, which is why often you see tons of players standing behind the batsman in test cricket. You don't get that in meme20 because it's devoid of interesting tactics.
>"Conserving wickets until you can play like a T20" is a poor characterisation imho
except that is the tactic EVERY team uses these days, certainly in the first innings.
The first 30 overs is literally just a holding pattern where they knock it around until they go t20. If you actually enjoy that then power to you. But ODi's globally have declining crowds and TV audiences and for good reason.
The very reason why ODI's became popular and were successful at a time has been completly usurped and made redundant by t20.
No. Just a guy who likes watching different sports.
(pic related) If the ball is hit and lands anywhere in the white area.
ODIs would be elite if they dropped the meme regulations and played them like a test match with a time limit. Slogging in tests is so much harder because of no fielding regulations, and is so much more impressive and entertaining, ODIs would be like that the whole time. As they are they're just long T20s. Also maybe use the pink ball because the white just does nothing for bowlers.
New Zealand has become so efficient I can barely watch it anymore if they're batting first
>opener gets out early
>Guptill gets a big score or doesn't convert a start
>Taylor hobbles around for ages but somehow scraps to a 85 SR score
>Elliott gets a quick 30-odd
>Ronchi out for under 10
Bowling is another story though, I genuinely enjoy watching New Zealand bowling first in ODIs.
Are you faggots taking a bath? NO, your fucking having a swim, so they are swimmers.
>the shanty town of everyone that isn't GOAT SOUTH WALES, Intelligence
Does this mean that sydney THE MOST un-australian city?
Literally nobody else calls it a sandwich
Apart from the WC final that's literally been every single game where NZ has batted first though
The ODI loss to England was really disappointing when >we were expected to wallop them, but if you look at the team that played, no wonder. They literally had to fly in some literally who from Central Districts for the last game because everyone was injured.
The bowling standard has definitely dropped by a huge margin since the World Cup though.
I'm now officially pandering, wew
t20 is the format. There's three formats.
t20=20 overs per innings - goes for ~3 hours
ODi=50 overs per innings - goes for ~8 hours
Test=Unlimited overs - 4 innings - goes for up to 5 days
Basically the shorter the format the more pleb and Americanised it is.
>Each side bats two innings of a maximum of 10 overs each.
>Batsmen may not be out from a no ball as usual, and also the next ball bowled after a no ball. This is intended to encourage aggressive batting on the "free hit" ball.
>Wides score 2 extras instead of 1.
>Bowlers may not bowl more than 4 overs per match. These may be distributed between the two innings in any way.
>The field is marked with trapezoidal "Max" zones, one at each end of the field, beginning 60 metres from the striker's wicket, where the trapezoid is 40 metres wide, and extending to the boundary, where the trapezoid is 50 metres wide. Any ball hit into the Max zone doubles the number of runs scored from that ball, whether by running between the wickets, or a boundary four or six. Fielders may not be in the Max zone as the ball is bowled. Only the Max zone in front of the striker is valid for all these rules.
>The first version of Cricket Max also included the use of 4 stumps, instead of 3, at each end of the cricket pitch. This was designed to help bowlers dismiss batsmen, as a batsman could not be dismissed leg before wicket.
You have 10 seconds to explain why Cricket Max wasn't objectively better than T20s.
Pro-tip: you literally can't.
>The bowling standard has definitely dropped by a huge margin since the World Cup though.
we might unironically lose to you because all our bowlers are kill
Bitchwide retired. Sterc ded. Cummins ded. Pattinson not being risked in ODI's. hazlewood UNIRONICALLY leading the ODI "attack" and Boland UNIRONICALLY in the squad.
Boland is literally worse than Southee & co
I remember when I was small I used to think that Australia was literally trying so hard to be america. America constantly does meme things to be contrarian like imperial and stupid spellings, and australia tried to follow suit with "labor" and the fact that the fucking $1 coin is LARGER than the $2 coin (this still absolutely amazes me)
You know how baseball was made popular because they wanted a shorter version of cricket? T20 is the same thing 100 years later, because they literally totally forgot that baseball existed. So yes, it is just baseball.
Yeah, don't care if >we lose the pyjama games Tbh, especially because they replaced a test.
I'd unironically have HenREEEE ahead of SouthREEEE in ODIs. And unironically have McMemeagain over Milne unless Milne actually starts doing anything apart from DUDE GOOD LENGTH LMAO
>clearly behind the line
>the city of test cricket
Henry has stepped the fuck up and is unironically our #1 bowler right now but Milner Skudder is perennially injured, McShitAgain is garbage and Boult and Southee look out of it. Our bowlers are kill too
How about my version:
> Innings are only 9 balls long. It is literally impossible to get out
> Batsman cannot get out from no balls, which are now worth 4 runs
> Wides are worth 6 runs
> All runs are now worth 4 runs
> There are 16 stumps, but you can't get out lbw, and you're allowed to hold two bats
