SA bouncing back strongly tonight with centuries to both de Villiers and Duminy.

It's going to be a very interesting to see how this Aussie team reacts as it's the first time in a while that we've been under the pump like this since our good run started.

Seriously though, what happened to Mitchell Johnson? Went from a talented player to a laughing stock to now probably the best fast bowler on the planet. Insane.

 

 

Ireland beat the Windies during the first T20 international on Tuesday, second one tonight. Huge win for Ireland over the T20 world champions, and it wasn't even their 'B' Team, so no excuses.

He never really worked on his technique and it caused him to bowl erratically at times. He went away and worked with Dennis lillee for a few months and ever since then he's been on fire.

Australia won the series against SA with a last day win in the 3rd test. We needed 2 wickets in the last 5 overs with Harris coming through with both from 2 ripper deliveries. 

 

Warner man of the match and man of the series.

5 years without losing a series and Graeme Smith retires on a defeat. He was a great player though.

Netherlands just beat Ireland in one of the greatest run chases ever and qualified for the Super 10's of the T20 World Cup.

 

Ireland put on a very good total of 189-5 off their 20 overs but Holland chased it down in 13.5 overs, incredible, meaning they qualify on NRR ahead of Zimbabwe and Ireland for the Super 10's. Of course I'm disappointed but bloody hell, fantastic stuff by the Netherlands. It should have been enough but Holland just put on a batting show. 19 6's in total and also the highest total in a batting powerplay in an International T20. Their opener got 63 from just 23 deliveries for example. Bloody hell, fantastic cricket.

And there was a total of 30 6's in the match overall, a world record. Really, really incredible. Glad it's the Netherlands as well that qualified and not Zimbabwe, at least there will be one Associate nation in the Super 10's.

 

People gotta watch that match, really. If you like T20 cricket you won't see many better. I never have and I only saw the end of it!

Not into Cricket. Never really found watching it on TV to be all that interesting. However watching it live at a ground is great. 10 seconds of action and back to drinking your beer again for another couple of minutes - rinse and repeat.

By the way, in the past I have played Football (obviously), American Football and Rugby, so I am not shy at taking a knock or two but bloody hell, you have to be bat s**t crazy to play cricket by standing there and allowing someone to throw a solid object at you. What with suffering from hey fever in the summer it wad a recipe for disaster.

England lose yet another test with the penultimate delivery of match. Sri Lanka are laughing. Win the test 0-1. Don't understand why the series is so short anyway.

England are struggling.
