Some sad news today Former England captain Bob Willis has passed away. RIP

Once again englandshire get across the line with help from match officials, Stokes was plumb lbw and it was incedibly never given, Aussies must of course look at their own error in using their last re

Well the captain of the team that were in wanted his team to be out so the team that were out could be in so his team could get them out & win the game :D

@Daisey Jeep do Argentina have a cricket team you might stand a chance against?

The Pumas are my favourite opposition team

They were the first All Black match i ever saw, with my Dad at Carrisbrook

I have followed the fortunes of Argentina since Hungo Porta in the 1st world cup in 1987

Ive longed for this win for a long long time, although i would have preferred they bet the Wallabies or the Spdingbok first, i am still very very happy for them and i wish then continued success in the future and i hope once this covid bullshit is over they continue in a southern hemisphere tournament of some sort

Hats off to them - they had not played international rugby for 14 months

As for the men in black

They need to get their shit together

i see that spectators have been allowed for the India Vs Australia One day series which began in Sydney today. No masks as well . Strange, in fact just last week we thought that with the measures in Adelaide , the Aussies were probably over reacting

Stupidity..Not that anyone is lining up to play Pakistan for Akhtar to say such dumb stuff. He is the same guy who once said he saw fear in Tendulkar and Dravid's eyes when they faced him forgetting the battering he got from Tendulkar in the 2003 world cup. Having made it he should have had the guts to stand his ground instead of  completely changing his stance on India knowing that he would stand to lose lot of money from commentary in India

how are you @balboa08 ?

i wish you were here watching the cricket 

 

i wish my dad had lived into the era of big TVs

our telly is by no means overly large but its awsome for cricket 

 

NZ is going so well tonight

after 8 overs 81- 6 after the West Indies were 50 something not out only a few overs ago

this would have been a great game  to take @Jimmy James to

run outs, catches, LBW, 3rd umpire, some 6s, even the short rain delay

Doing Good Daisey, thank you. Our own city is now having less than 1 k positive cases a day which  is much better than the 5 k+ we had consistently a month back. Seems like the worst is over.

Would love to visit NZ one day as the general impression people here of NZ is that its a beautiful place with nice folks.May be this impression has come from watching over the years some of the players from NZ like Hadlee, Coney, Howarth and now Williamson. 

In Sydney, the Aussies are going great guns at 359 with still 10 balls to play and Smith has just scored a 100. This guy is amazing when he dons Australian colours

what's the jump like bwtween the IPL and international cricket ?

because the Windies seemed rusty 

i know its not ideal coming out of quareteen straight into a match but its just the nature of the beast this year

i miss cricket on the radio 

we have this thing here at Indian restaurants called Kiwi hot and Indian hot 

once Gary got Indian hot

i thought he was going to have a heart attack
