I will decide who posts John Howard pictures in this thread and the circumstances in which they post.


Kevin Roberts as head of Cricket Australia (I wish they went back to the old Australian Cricket Board name)

For some reason I thought Sutherland was still running the show until late last year. I can not remember a goddamn thing about Roberts.

quote:

Influential figures in Australian cricket have sounded out former England captain Andrew Strauss in the belief he should be the next chief executive at Cricket Australia.

Embattled chief executive Kevin Roberts resigned after 19 months in the job on Tuesday as dissatisfaction grew over his handling of the financial issues created by COVID-19.

CA laid off 40 staff on Wednesday including menís batting coach Graeme Hick. The organisation claimed the redundancies and other cuts will save $40m in the next financial year.

Englishman Nick Hockley has been appointed interim CEO, but the organisation said it would be launching a global search for a fulltime replacement to fill that role. Appointing the South African-born Strauss to the role would provoke a kneejerk reaction from parochial members of the local cricket community but Strauss has an impressive CV and spent many years in Australia playing cricket.

I like how they say "South African-born" to put a fig leaf over "by the way, former England captain".

I imagine Strauss carries a fair amount of grudging respect in Australia though as the only England captain to win the Ashes there in over 30 years.

Three Pakistani players tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. Ashley Giles comes out in the press telling everyone the tour is still on. Seven more test positive today.

Don't get my name wrong,
If you want to touch me there.

Which Test Cricketer do you fine people think would make a good Pro Wrestler?

Kohli and Broad would be great heels. For obvious reasons, (they are easily punchable arseholes.)

And Herath would be a wonderful babyface. I mean who doesn't want to cheer a short chubby Sri Lankan who works in a bank?

And seconding that I'd miss this thread. It's nice to have a place to discuss cricket that doesn't always devolve into how many of Sachins bats would fit in my mums pussy.

Robelinda2's video on Inzy's best run-outs also happens to include a Bucknor-level loving awful decision.

I wouldn't have thought it possible to not see when an ocean liner like Inzy gets in your line of sight, but I guess you don't have to worry about "line of sight" when you're completely blind
