Our review identified changes needed to be made and, in Stephen, we have a coach who has a reputation for demanding the highest standards.


As always, everything about every t20 league is dumb and illogical.

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

Whilst I don't remember the specifics, (sorry), my favourite IPL wasting money story is that in one of the early IPLs, Cameron White gets bought for a lot of money, I remember it being something around $700,000 Australian. But then doesn't play a single game. He was fit, he was over there, they just didn't pick him in the side. So he got paid high 6 figures to go on a month and a half long holiday in India accommodation and flights paid, staying in nice hotels.

Oh man, Wade trying to break his arm, MMarsh going for the comedy run out so early, Southee and Boult swinging in tandem. This is enjoyable stuff

Looks like Sodhi's been putting in work on some variations. Still can't aim anything but ok.
