I dunno. This feels a bit more of a significant moment than just the usual Australian obnoxiousness. I believe cricket Australia is scincere in wanting to take the team out of the 1970s and embracing a degree of sportsmanship. Stopping bigoted abuse of the opposition is a good start. Let’s see what happens.
I think that’s right. The team has veered between unlikeable and grotesque for years. It became a cartoon parody of Alan Border’s tough teams, and in doing so lost it’s moral compass.

They’ve picked a sportsman as captain and dumped Warner, the worst of the garbage.

It’s a start.
I agree with both of you. Warner is a disgrace to Australia and cricket, I hope he never plays again. On another note, who was the poor debutant who was caught with the bright yellow sandpaper? 1000-1 days he will never attempt to cheat again.

Smacks it over the fence, out of the grounds and straight through Lincoln’s green and purple blind covered window. Cop that you pommy wankers, 6 all round.

Up steps Lincoln to the crease,trusty blade in hand....

England need 6 off the last ball for victory....but who is the Aussie bowler? And just what is he doing with that ball?

It's the old buffer Jedgerandclyde that has the cherry in one hand and a piece of sandpaper in the other ( the cheating motherhood)...

He steps up,he bowls...*TWAACK*...Lincoln smashes the ball back over the old cunts head for yet another....

NIFTY 50 !!!!

Bancroft. I expect you’re right about him. Mitchell Statc is unlikely to have a world class spell again now that he has to bowl with an ordinary ball.

They played well against PAK. Without the usual chav bullshit that comes with them. It was good to see.

That’s said, Starc and Lyon’s career figures should both forever have an asterix next to them.
