    I don't think that's fair. Very little of the comment I've seen on his action has come from NZ posters. In fact, can you provide any examples at all?

    And you can't blame us for being disappointed in our team after 60 all out. 60.

    Can you blame anyone for reacting that way, though? Excluding Williamson, our entire team mustered 18 runs between them. Regardless of how well the opposition has bowled (absolutely brilliantly), that's appalling. I think any fan around the world would feel let down by their team after that.

    I think it was the baseball comment that fired Migara up.

    Oh, I just took that as meaning KN would switch to following Major League baseball instead, which I know he watches. Didn't make that connection - apologies.

    Hey no need to apologise and that might well be what KN meant.

    Nothing like a hint of bent elbow to fire up cricket fans on both sides of the fence eh

    Just seen this reading through. Original comment was a reference to AB's (apparently serious) 'music' career, which is almost Brett Lee-like in its gag-inducement. Reason why he drew my disdain in the first place was for some article where he claimed his sickly cryfest was rooted in some genuine love for music. If he loved music he never would have released that monstrosity, stick to being the world's best batsman mate (which thankfully he has).

    Yeah I know the feeling. Sending him for yearly checks by bancrupt SLC is bordering on magic beans.

    I thought we had already established in the chucking thread that test results were a more reliable source than the personal opinions of people watching at home, unless you're saying he is in fact bowling that so-called 'big spinning' off break in ODIs despite it being close to a chuck, well, tbh, I don't think I've ever seen sachi turn the ball very far.

    re England v Netherlands

    Amazing really. A seemingly ragbag, disparate and desperate mix of Aussie and South African mercenaries, with somewhat uncertain futures, went and lost to The Netherlands.

    the start of your sentence sounded like the opening to Battle Star Galactica.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
