He scored a very good 66* literally 2 innings ago, goddamn I hate our kneejerk fans.

His last 10 ODI innings (since the India series, basically): 5,11,12,58,8,0,10,66*,20,0. Whopping 21 average. I don't know how kneejerk that is.

And if you go back 15 games he has a 30 average. A rough 10 game stretch is not grounds to ditch a guy with a career record of 3049 runs at a 37 average and 80 sr just before a world cup.

Cook since Jan 1st, 2014 (format ODIs): Ave 27.52, SR 71.25
Guptill since Jan 1st, 2014 (format ODIs): Ave 28.94, SR 69.68

The entire world wanted Cook dropped as well.

Is there really that much of a home crowd in BBL? Indian fans go crazy about their IPL team but I've never seen many aussies actually care.

I was playing in a game against Cricketers Club of NSW for our local Tawa team, and one of the Wellington Blazes players (our local Women's team) bowlers was playing for us. Says she's massively over-rated.

Guess I'm the David Warner.

Sounds like she may be jealous of a 14 year old, tbh

Eh, it's significantly more modern design-wise and it honestly wont take too long to get used to. The layout is confusing as gently caress though, they just threw random panels places and the same articles are on the front page multiple times for some reason.

I like how the commentators have been spinning Guptil as being in the team as a specialist fielder instead of opening batsman.
It doesn't hurt that he has taken more catches than runs he has scored.

Almost more catches than balls faced tbh.

The rules for the world cup are really hosed up I think, the pot is different depending on how far NZ goes in the tournament.

Wikipedia posted:

A sign with the legend "JOHN 3:7" is often seen at Gaelic games stadiums in Ireland. It refers to a verse in the Gospel of John and for at least two decades has been displayed by fan Frank Hogan during matches.

The new stats graph thing they have on the bottom of player profiles on Cricinfo is really rad.

I like it because it makes simple things that I often look up (stats since an arbitrary date, or in an arbitrary period) very easy, but then I'll accidentally click some part of the graph and it'll change to a completely baffling graph that I don't know how I got to.

Seems likely that NZ will rest a couple of their bowlers in each of the final two matches, though.
