OP is due for a big one. Not this time but soon.

Clear match fixing in that last over, I suppose it was lucky the Stars batsman didn't die from exhaustion before whacking waist high full toss dollies over the boundary.

Cricket Thread 2015 - WORLD CUP - post in English only please, we theoretically don't know those other languages.

Didn't they have massive queues for krispy kreme donuts when the first store opened there last year? Some dude got robbed of his donuts by a guy with a knife iirc. Adelaide is a strange place.

Donuts? You have it wrong it's a souvenir shop.

loving Scorchers better win the final, if Lee gets to go out winning a final (I was going to say "on top" but it's T20).

Do you guys think Warner would still sledge a 14 year old girl?

Any less would be un-Australian. Smith would comfort her though, until Clark told him to stop befriending the enemy.

That is an awesome looking ground.

e: She's certainly bowling a lot better than the endless full bungers I saw in the Aus women's final today.

Man if only they hadn't scored 10 runs from the first legal ball from the 18th over, hey?



RideTheSpiral posted:

What happened on the last ball? I can't watch.

Mozzie hosed up the run out that would have sent them into a super over. Had more time than he realised, throw wasn't flash either. Lee was right there to witness the failure.

-Spiffy- posted:

Enriques had a great game with the bat and captaincy, shame he won't remember anything else but that.

Lee shanked the 18th over, and the throw was an unnecessary bouncing rocket, after salvaging their innings he basically is the only reason they were even in with a chance so he should accept the fact that he is only human as opposed to thinking he lost them the game.

e: Creepy cameraman circling Tye and his partner making out on the ground, stay classy Ten.

It's this, but it is because it is Channel 9 mandated. They aren't allowed to speak negatively about any Australian players, and also it seems that they are actively discouraged from talking about the opposition. If someone takes 7 wickets, or scores 100+ then they may say "well X has done well against the AWESOME AUSSIES" but apart from that it's 100% wall to wall Watto Big Show matey matey blokey bloke wanking.

The amount of times Braycunt mentioned the Australian bowlers and how awesome they were completely out of context in the Eng/Ind game on Friday was infuriating. The thought of that group talking over some percentage of the World Cup games stopped me from considering a 12 month Foxtel sub in part to watch it.

Marsh hit a six at some point and I dived for the remote to mute it before I had to hear him say that NO GROUND IS BIG ENOUGH TO HOLD THIS MAN but I missed it so I muted the TV and snapped the remote in half instead.

Why do they want to make me hate cricket

Haha, so Channel 9 aren't involved in the commentary of this?

I cried with joy once I realised that it was a bunch of normal commentators. Although Taylor just came on, but hopefully his poo poo commentary is just because he is dragged down by the bogans he normally has to work with.

Of course it was balanced out to some extent by the loving bogans you can hear yelling abuse from wherever they have that mike set up.

Bye bye blue steel.

This just in cricket now has double plays, but on review you can get one decision overturned. What the gently caress was that.

Commentators give no shits and move on quickly because it's not an Australian.

Dunbar posted:

Sorry for the dumb question, but are you allowed to run when the ball just nicks off your pad rather than being batted?

Yeah, it's called a leg bye, the umpire will lift his knee in the air and slap the top of this thigh. Also the runs aren't attributed to the batsman in the case, they go into the "extras" total which counts runs from wides, no balls etc.

Of course that if it's a non mentally disabled umpire. If it's Billy Bowden he will probably do a pirouette while patting his head and rubbing his stomach.
