I honestly couldn't care less about tests. As long as we can keep playing T20's at the high level I will be happy, it's more meaningful in this day and age
In fact, you would find the majority of the cricket watching public to be in the same boat as myself.

Warnercuck was trying to justify it by saying it's a part of the modern game, but I think it's bullshit for internationals. Maybe it's ok in meme bash or something.

Their whole existence is based around being mad at Union and cultivated in poor people schools, so nobody is surprised when these young retarded "men" act out in wild ways.
I'm a middle aged single mother with 3 children and I think Mitchell Pearce's behaviour was simply deplorable
These young men are supposed to be role models to our future members of society
It's filled to the brim with normies who are there "for curiosity" and aren't interested in the classic pump'n'dump. I've come across pretty much every girl I know on tinder honestly, and none of them seem like dtf types
I had one of the big kahuna burgers today. I usually think kfc is sickening but it was one of the best burgers i've had at one of the big fast food places. Definitely recommend.

Get fucking memed on poo peeland; in the battle of the earthquake prone, third world shitholes, you lost.
During the South Africa/India series, literally 3/4 of the South African team had food poising and a severe case of pooinloo on the eve of the first test i think it was.
How do "humans" even survive in these shitholes? Have they mutated like cockroaches?
Altho why Australia isn't at this tournament I don't get. They're claiming "security", but England and New Zealand would have all the same intelligence >we do. So it doesn't really add up. But fuck if I was an U-19 cucketer i'd be pretty happy not to go to objectively the worst country in the world.
I guess only the strong survive, its like when you get an injection, you take a small strain of a virus and then your body learns how to deal with it. I think most die, but some survive and are then immune to the disease you get from bathing, drinking, shitting, putting cremated bodies in their water supply,

Not anymore, but Bombay has won 90% of Ranji Trophy finals. The image speaks for itself.
Lads thinking about laying some money down on the Aussie open. Not sure if Murray and the wog played yet but give me some advice on what today down. Serena is gonna be at -700 so fuck that. Trump hat guy needs one more root before he goes back to the states.
The first game was way too meme-tier for me. Tait, Smith's dismissal, ""Yuvraj Singh"", Pandya's first over, Dhoni finishing the innings, and Australia collapsing. That was honestly just the weirdest game of cricket I've seen since 60 all out.
Friendly reminder there is no need for this social club when no real cricket matches are on. This is further shown by the fact that the thread has slowed to a crawl over the past couple of days.
The only people keeping it alive are the New Zealanders who have literally nowhere else to go, and the Australians who are desperate for a reddit-tier social club to be active 24/7, even when it's not necessary.
Despite your noble intentions, this didn't come across as a particularly friendly reminder. The tone was quite passive-aggressive and the personal attacks could be construed as quite hurtful to a sensitive individual.
he's a good shield batsman and did well in the Matador Cup, but not so great in the big bash
he's a trash keeper though, I'll agree with you there. lewdman would be the better option
>lewdman would be the better option
God no, he's horrifically out of form, he could barely hit the ball off the squad in the Big Meme. both of his half centuries were unironically at less than a run a ball.
Haddin is literally, by far, the best t20 keeper/batsman around. Handscomb 2nd even tho he didnt do much in the BBL either.
Outside of highlights, there isn't really any full games online because of their length. The best way is to just stream international games as they come on crichd.in or crictime.nl
there's only T20s and ODIs on right now, the next test series in in February

Those Nimble ads are fucking disgusting. That forced quirkiness designed to condition young people to owe money and be in debt.
Absolutely putrid. Just wanting to keep young people in line and underfoot.
Ireland are beginning to annoy me lads, their board needs to be a lot more proactive in organising games.
Having teams tour England and Ireland together is a good idea in theory, but they just get treated as warm up games and don't really serve much of a purpose.
Just look at Afghanistan, they're constantly playing Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, despite being relevant for much less time, and it's doing wonders for the development of cricket over there.
There's literally no reason Ireland can't organise ODI and T20 tours against Scotland and the Netherlands at the very least.
ODIs are formulaic, but at least there's an element of strategy to them. T20s are just batsmen slogging their way through balls placed way outside off at meme speeds
It's funny how niche cricket is in Ireland tbqh
My grandfather is irish and he said when he was a kid everyone used to play cricket, divegrass and gaelic football, unless they were a hardcore IRA supporter or something and only played gaelic.
Apparently cricket was the most popular sport in the Netherlands for quite a while too, but it's completely dead there now.
i dont get why bowlers cant bowl outside legstump in ODI/t20
within reason ofcourse, the batsman has to be able to play it, but the way the rule is now it basically takes going around the wicket out as a legitimate tactic.
ODIs are complete trash, the only reason people have a fascination with them is that we grew up with them. I'll be glad to see them wiped off the face of the earth in 20 years or so.
>and he said when he was a kid everyone used to play cricket
the irish guy who posts here said that cricket is nonexistant in ireland and only played by like the one single protestant school in dublin. and if you look at the ireland team, they're all from either dublin or ulster
There is literally no difference between T20 and baseball. The tactics are basic and dull to watch. T20 was enjoyable from like 2005-9 because they were all fucking meme charity events but ever since there have been 26854 T20 games a year its predictability has been ruthlessly exposed.
Having said that, it still has a massive place in the game, for pulling normals and kids in, as well as being an easier form to organise for shit countries to play. It just isn't good viewing.
I unironically prefer ODIs to T20.
said, T20s involve memeslogging. Also, there is a massive snowball/luck effect in T20s. If one side begins to get on top, they WILL win, 99% of the time. One bad umpiring decision, one very unlucky wicket can often be the difference between winning and losing. The fact that T20s are such a coinflip and can be so heavily influenced by good/bad luck can be seen by the fact no team has won the World T20 twice, and that there is never one clearly dominant T20 team in world cricket, even in domestic leagues (Thunder going from bottom, to 2nd bottom, to champions in 3 years).
ODIs allow teams to fight back and consolidate, and require a very good batting/bowling performance to blow the opposition away, not just one good over.
The bottom line is that in tests, and to a lesser extent ODIs, the better team through the majority of the test usually wins. This does NOT happen in T20s unless there is a blowout.
>there have been 26854 T20 games a year
Australia literally hadnt played t20 since November 2014 before this
I assume you're referring to domestic comps then and thats an idiotic notion. Why the fuck would you be watching the Bangladesh or Zimbabwe league?
New Zealand doesn't have a real t20 league so i can understand you personally not watching any t20 but the BBL is good fun and has more context than any irrelevant bilateral ODI series.
I don't really watch baseball at all, but how does it have strategy? From what I know about the game, the ball has to be pitched in a particular area every time and the batter is always looking to hit it in the same way.
lads when I take over the ICC this is my plan
>Bilateral series for limited overs is completely kill
>T20 internationals are non-existent except WT20
>Bilaterals are test only
>ODIs only exist for world cups and regional tournaments like Asia Cup (which would become yearly). A new comp like the Rugby Championship for the southern hemisphere will show up, England can do something idk
>Domestic T20 is the only T20, plus a brief champions trophy. Merge Aus and NZ leagues, Pak SL Ban and meme countries like Afg merge too. England include Ireland Netherlands etc. SA include Zimbabwe. In the end there are only like six leagues, top teams from each do a champions league. You can't be signed to more than two teams over a calendar year, one has to be from your home country.
bilateral ODI series are much more entertaining, regardless of their ""context""
The players are generally of an international standard and aren't bowling full tosses every single ball, plus you can actually support your own country instead of some manufactured brand that was arbitrarily designed five years ago.
Strike zone is fairly big area depending on the size of the batter. Plus you've seen less focus on power hitting teams, especially since the Royals fucking killed everyone with smart contact hitting and just singling you to death.
Tons of strategy. Could go into it more but it's also 2am.
>If one side begins to get on top
casual: the opinion
t20 usually has FAR more oscillations than ODI. see: 2015 final
Even the recent BBL final, the Stars were ontop for most of the first innings and lost quite badly.
In other games off the top of my head: there was that one game where the Scorchers were 3/9 after 3 overs and won the game. The Stars posted like 130 against the Scorchers in another game and won. The New Years Eve game... list goes on
By contrast the CWC was dogshit. Literally the ONLY games that had oscillations were AUSvNZ groupstage and the SA/NZ semi and a couple of irrelevant minnow games.
The CWC final was Australia dominating from the 5th ball and the game was basically over from that point.
>If one side begins to get on top, they WILL win, 99% of the time
That's exactly what happens in tests, and to a lesser extent ODIs.
T20s just need a single performance from a batsman (or a bowler) to change the direction of the game completely.
>The CWC final was Australia dominating from the 5th ball and the game was basically over from that point.
casual: the opinion
The game was decided when Taylor and Anderson got out in one over. They were on target for 250+ and that fucked them over. Obviously Australia already had an advantage from the opening over, but by no means was it over at that point.
By "get on top" I don't mean a sustained session of wickets or massive partnerships, I mean one key wicket, or one key partnership at the start of a test.
A single key wicket or a single key partnership in the first session/day of a test match does not mean a lot in the grand scheme of things. A key wicket or opening partnership in a T20 literally spells the end in most cases.
there was not one oscillation in the ANY of the finals games except the New Zealand semi
Australia dominated Pakistan from start to finish
India dominated Bangladesh from start to finish
New Zealand dominated Tendies from start to finish
South Africa dominated Shit Lanka from start to finish
Australia dominated India from start to finish
Australia dominated New Zealand from start to finish
K E K
>Australia dominated Pakistan from start to finish
>India dominated Bangladesh from start to finish
>Australia dominated India from start to finish
There were literally dozens of acbs who were pissing their pants when india were chasing at 7RPO with no loss. It was when Kohli choked that the game was lost.
>Australia dominated Pakistan from start to finish
that was an entertaining game that was entertainingly close, without being a nail-biter
>There were literally dozens of acbs who were pissing their pants
I was at the game and once Bitchwide hit that cameo ~30 I knew the game was over and so did all the currys around me.
No team is chasing 330 against Starc bowling in the form of his life.
wow it literally wasn't, they posted a modest total and even if Wahab had got Watson out Australia would have chased it comfortably anyway. Maxwell, Faulkner and Haddin weren't even needed as it was and you call it close? Idiot.
>warner cant even remember what players are playing today
Except for the part where it wasn't close at all
Out of 100 overs of cricket, the only passage that was even mildly entertaining was 2 overs Wahab bowled at Watson, which even if he had won, wouldn't have won the game for Pakistan anyway.
You're right it was better than other games, but thats only because of how shit the 2015 CWC was.
There has not been ONE good CWC since 1999.
2011 was okay but low quality. Just think that the team who won LITERALLY had Sreesanth and Munaf Patel in the team. India was just the best of a whole bunch of shit teams.
i remember it because it was a world cup (the only redeeming quality of ODI cricket) hosted in australia won by australia
otherwise you're correct, i wouldn't. I don't watch ODI bilateral games anymore unless they're in Canberra because that is all >we get live.
Test match when?
I fucking hate this gimmicky 3D replay shit. The old man literally laughed out loud the first time we saw it.
Just show the fucking replay from a single angle so you can see what's happening
>A Pakistani die-hard fan of Indian batsman Virat Kohli may get up to 10-year imprisonment after being arrested for hoisting the Indian tri-colour atop his home in Punjab Province which he had done to show his love for the cricketer.
>Draz was arrested on January 26 when India beat Australia in a T20 match and Kohli scored 90 runs. Police raided Draz home on a complaint that he hoisted the Indian flag on the rooftop of his house.
