on another note though glad to hear some americans tuning in.

take note though, yanks have the most bad rear end cricket team in the world

That's a sweet video, I hope they got the funding they needed. My city (Indianapolis) had a massive argument when the mayor spent like $5 milion building some cricket grounds in a bad neighborhood, but it looks like we're still gonna host the "ICC Americas Division One Twenty20 tournament" which seems pretty cool.

ballance will be so conflicted

Steve Smith is the best

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/new...6-1227217442081

quote:

At one match, a senior cricketer parked himself close and began to sledge Smith relentlessly. The 16-year-old kept quiet for a long time, but eventually turned to his tormenter and asked, “Mate, how old are you?” The fielder replied that he was 30. “And you’re still in second grade?” the kid asked. That got a laugh from everyone and put an end to the chat, but after the game the older man sought Smith out to congratulate him on his effort.

Has anyone found a not-garbage stream for the India/Pakistan match? The ones I have tried are all buffering like mad, even on my phone over 4G (and my neighbor's unsecured wireless), so it isn't my internet connection.

Yeah they probably ought to double up group stage games, maybe staggered by an hour or two to avoid simultaneous finishes.

I don't understand why they won't broadcast them on GEM, instead of what's on now, which is a 5 year old re-run of the Great British Bake Off.

It's 3:30 AM and I just got back from watching the first innings of India/Pakistan at a bar here in NYC. I have never experienced anything like it in 28 years of being a sports fan. Nonstop chanting in Hindi for hours, screaming with every boundary, India and Pakistan fans being civil to one another in the midst of all of it. I wish the time zones weren't so awful so I could see the conclusion. It was seriously incredible.
