Pretty much everyone is here, so why not?

We saw the end of the Big Bash, that England are gash, India are beyond comment and a whole lot of sh*te in the past week.

Dhoni has said that he's willing to step down as captain  if the selectors want him to. Please go.

A crazy stat that I was scouring, unsuccessfully, when asked about it.
Pair of batsmen dismissed in the same manner for the same 100+ Test score by the same named bowler:
210
DM Jones b NS Yadav, Aus v Ind, Madras, 1986-87
MJ Clarke b U Yadav, Aus v Ind, Adelaide, 2011-12

118
FS Jackson b E Jones, Eng v Aus, The Oval, 1899
CH Lloyd b IJ Jones, WI v Eng, Port-of-Spain, 1967-68

115
DW Randall b GF Lawson, Eng v Aus, Perth, 1982-83
SR Waugh b JJC Lawson, Aus v WI, Bridgetown, 2002-03

106
Mushtaq Ali lbw DStE Atkinson, Ind v WI, Calcutta, 1948-49
Wazir Mohammad lbw EStE Atkinson, Pak v WI, Kingston, 1957-58

    To be fair, everyone enjoyed that collapse. It was beyond sh!te.
    Kudos to Jos Buttler, he's been brilliant in the Lions tour to Lanka. Ian Belf has to go, from the OD team not the tests yet.

    Indian media are all optimistic again, new format fresh start for India. ;D

    I'll be watching it, not just because I watch any sh*t cricket but I really want to see George Bailley captain the team. I've heard the weather forecast isn't too optimistic. Sublimit, our resident weather expert, should help us out.

    Anyway I think India will win, don't trust the Australian batting lineup to play in the manner required to win the match (see Melbourne Stars).

    Aye, it looks a bit flimsy. Bailey's out of form, hopefully Marsh can buy a run today. Mitch in and Georgie Hogg is back.

    Not the youngest Australian team one would see.
    Hopefully we'll see a match and not a procession like the last three tests.
    Aussie Women struggled today to 7/92. Shouldn't be a super high scorer.

    Marsh will probably score more runs than he did the whole test series, but not quickly enough, ill go for something like 32 (29). Agreed that Warner is definitely the key.

    Ramjam do you know of any dodgy streams? It's on a 3 hour delay here.

    crictime.com will be streaming this match, cricket-365.net should also be doing something. I'll post a link when it is on.

    I think Marsh had the second worst series for a batsman in a 4 or more test series. Ken Rutherford had the worst.

    The streams are already on- www.crictime.com
    An hour's build up seems a bit much for a twenty20 match. Match should start in half an hour. Enjoy the ESPN Star commentary, you'll hear a lot of the pits- Ravi Shastri.

    A bit worry when there's so many teams capitulating in Test cricket atm. Really disappointed about Marsh, looked the goods then epically failed. With only Watson and Khwaja in the wings its a bit of a worry.

    Sage. India's gashness papered over opposition weaknesses, both England and now Australia.
    In other news Phil Jaques has retired from cricket in Australia and will play as a domestic player for Yorkshire. Cook Jaques opening partnership for England?;)

    Arbiter, match has started- Stream

    Am disappointed about Jaques, his morale must have been shot to play so poorly afterwards. Really stupid they didn't try and get him back to 100% fitness and back into the test side. flip P*** H****s, he has years ahead of him to learn technique.

    Aye, Fuse was, and is, an absolute waste. Jaques never was the same post his back injury. Wrong place, wrong time and wrong injury.

    Switch hit sweep six from Warner.

    Tuarts- aye, Hughes and Haddin are so sh*t that even the swear filter won't do its job. I can type Indian cricket team without being edited as well.

    I'd posted this in the shoutbox yesterday and I'll post it here as well. Crazy Bangles umpire story

    I know it's only T20 but I just dont see the value of picking Lee and Hogg . They are never going to play test or ODI cricket again so give some young guys ago.

    But it's Hoggy, the best spinner in Australia since Warne's retirement.
