Cricket- Mini Curry v Pommy
« Reply #270 on: October 31, 2012, 09:00 »

Re different coloured balls, I have played with pink balls quite a bit and they are miles better than white imho, which lose their hardness and colour very easily. However, I have also used about 4 different types of pink ball, so there is no consensus on which type to go for.  Kookaburra pink was the best in my view, and seemed to keep its hardness and shape the best.  Great fun to play with though - swings a mile and goes like a rocket off the bat  :)

Ah, cool :-)

    Dances, I know you follow TMS, but I think the non paying slackers are taking it a bit far when they criticise test match sofa. It's not as if the beeb are exactly the most open of pockets to have a strop about the BCCI demanding 50k. Sky is another issue

    TMS is the only decent thing on Radio 4 and I hope it long continues. 
    It probably carries that station for the other mediocre stuff that one can find there.

    No doubt, it's good. But this is a strop about the change in broadcast rights terms since BCCI took over the production rights (not telecast) and they're asking 50k (not 500k which was demanded of Sky) from the beeb. Don't understand what Sky and BBC's legal teams were doing being unaware of such basic terms.

    Test match sofa are a just a cricket loving few slackers taking time off and giving some fun commentary on England matches and some other major tests nowadays. Really can't see what CMJ's banging on about in the second paragraph.

    Not good by England's batting. That was just the most toothless Indian bowling attack possible. No spinner, no fast bowler. Just some dobbers and pie chuckers, and one of them got a five for. Fat Sam locked in number 6, and Ashwin and Ojha will be a different proposition. Mind, we have Gambhir.

    Oh dear Aggers. TMS vs TMS, the place where venerated commentators act like children.

    I'll be going to the first Ranji match that Navi Mumbai will be hosting around the turn of the year. Should be one of fifty there, over four days. Mumbai vs Gujarat. Hopefully Rahane will play. My last Ranji match, Tamil Nadu got arse fliped.

    Seems like Root could possibly usurp Compton as opener. Compton's been gash, barely scored a run and isn't comfortable against Mumbai A. Speaking of Mumbai A, Javed Khan's father passed away during the course of the match. He came back the next day to take a wicket.

    really who is 3rd then

    plus I think you mean groundsman not Club Cricketer  ;D

    the only way I see brisbane going 4 innings is if Clarke wins the toss puts SA in and sids, JP and brickey do the job on the SA roll them for less than 250

    If he were a real groundsman, he'd have left SACAbahn a long time ago ;)

    Jimmy's had just one bad series. Unlike Swann who's been a sh*tehole for a year or two now. Milf will be good, but has he played any FC cricket this season (losing to SA is not FC cricket, might as well lose to Loughborough university).

    "@SportswaveAndre: India ignore Raina for the first two Tests - http://t.co/X6oIoBRp"

    "Yuvraj Singh is in the squad, while the selectors have ignored Suresh Raina.

    They have found a spot for Harbhajan Singh.

    Also picked are Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravi Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Murali Vijay, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma.

    The first of four Tests will start in Ahmedabad on 15 November."

    Saw that in the morning, not worth mentioning except for its sh*tness (well no, I discussed it elsewhere).

    Harbhajan has done flip all in forever.
    Vijay has been picked on the basis of one Duleep Trophy innings on a flat pitch against powder puff.
    Yuvraj is just unthinkably useless even for a useless player
    And Zaheer's flipping injured

    At least Raina's right fliped off from the face of the squad. What a flipping sh*tpiece and a waste of time he was.

    Not on velorooms, different forum.

    Who to pick?
    Don't pick Bhajji. Don't pick Yuvraj. Don't even think for one second about that lump of lard Raina.

    Tiwari, Rahane and Badri can fight it out for number 6. If there's no suitable third spinner, don't pick a third spinner.
