Anyone for Cricket?

Post by jason_recliner » December 25th 2020, 11:25pm

Apologies if I posted something similar in the past and there aren't any cricket fans here.

Anybody watching this summer? Some great 20/20 so far, BBL just gets better and better IMO. And the Test series is so unpredictable and has featured some outstanding cricket all round. I feel like a right fucking dick for bagging Labuschagne for many years...

:dssd:

Obviously the GOAT until the next one, next summer.

Just realised there's no sports forum here. Seems like an obvious omission?

I thought picking on wits was considered a sport.

Yep, but admittedly haven't had any since my last visit to Phuket.

What I didn't like was the amount you had to eat to feel full.....well that and trying to find ice cold Singha from a street vender.

Oh, and when did eating crickets become a sport?

And
2) If the vaccines are not effective, then why should the unvaccinated get one?

The sport, no. The cell phone service, yes.

BBL a couple of years ago got me into the sport. I really like 20/20 matches and ODI. Test matches, eh... not my thing. I might as well watch baseball. Alas, we changed cable providers and no longer have any cricket to watch (USA location). My wife is West Indian so you know where my support falls. :Beerbang:

Goddam!

Thanks, Alain. I'm tearing up over here.

India WELL up in this first innings of the second test. Australia has some bloody hard work to do.

Jason, great to see you back :-)

What worries me is India's form and they don't even have Kohli in the side

Isn't cricket that combo sport of soccer with a polo ball and badminton rackets with baseball gloves attached?

Good to be back Bedlam - hope you and the family are happy and healthy.

Rahane is doing a good job stepping in for Kohli - we were lucky not to lose by an innings. Looks like hard work batting out there. Love a tight series, looking forward to the next test already.

Great win for India to take the series 2-1. Nobody saw that coming. I was in a Teams meeting so unfortunately couldn't watch the last overs, but just the ABC News score updates
had me on the edge of my seat!

Twitter mercilessly mocks Tim Paine after Aussie captain's 'I can't wait to get you to the Gabba' threat spectacularly backfires as India take a historic Test win (and even Ravi Ashwin can't resist a dig!)

Tim Paine's grandstanding in Sydney came back to bite him as India pulled off one of the greatest Test victories of all time in an astonishing run chase in Brisbane.

After telling Ravi Ashwin during the drawn third Test 'I can't wait to get you to the Gabba', an injury-depleted Indian side chased down 328 on the final day to claim the series.

Rishabh Pant's brilliant 89, following on from opener Shubman Gill's 91, guided India to their victory target with just three wickets and 18 balls left and inflicted Australia's first defeat at the Gabba since 1988.
