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

Watched a fantastic Big Bash T20 game from Australia earlier today, with the chasing side winning by one wicket with one ball left. However they earlier missed out on four runs when one was hit back hard at the umpire that came within inches of rendering him unable to father children.

Heartening to see the way India dominated to win the second test against Australia after the 2nd innings disaster at Adelaide.

Must say i was not expecting them to recover so well especially since Virat has flown back to be with his wife for the birth of their child

A good comeback after what happened in the first test especially with Shami missing aswell as Kohli + losing a bowler to injury during the match,should be an interesting last 2 tests.

Adding to  World cup winning captain, member of NZ order of merit, selector, commentator and NZ cricket president feathers in her cup

-not to mention surviving cancer twice

White fern great Debbie Hockey is now a compaign to the NZ order of merit for services to the game off the field

She is on her 2nd 3 year term as president of NZ cricket - the first woman to be elected to the post (and that means she is also in charge of the men)

I wish the ladies still played tests and still wore propper whites 

I loved those white couletts back in the day

When she first did commentator work for sky she got violence and death threats for being a woman

Absolutely fucking disgusting it was

https://www.odt.co.nz/sport/cricket/cricket-tragic’s-long-and-patient-innings-comes-sadly-close

Took this on my last trip to HQ to watch Australia in August 2019. It rained all day and I didn’t see a single delivery.

Shame about the clouds and lack of people

Still a beauty of a stand 

The grass looks like velvet (as it should)

It’s a sporting cathedral. The photo was taken at 10.30 just before the heavens opened.

Steve Smith shows his true colours again.

And captain Tim Paine having already been fined 15% of his match fee for abusing an Umpire after DRS overturned a decision (only 15%?) apologises after stump mikes pick up him abusing the Indian batsmen.

The Australian test team, classy dudes.
