    I just felt the same as the bolded part for your previous post as well.
    I don't know what you understood, but saying that Aus winning in SA is a sore point for me is hilarious. Actually, Australia is the second favourite team for me after India.

    in the end, i think we can blame the selectors picking on bbl form.

    (@CricAddict) Meaning that India have difficulty winning there...tbh I was surprised by your post. No gloating was intended. I was just expressing happiness. Especially since the summer's results were so unexpected. I'm uncomfortable that someone could read bragging in what I said. I somehow feel its important to tell you that isn't what I think at all.

    Other than a few posters on here, lot of hindsight kings popping up in the media and general publis re: Hogg and Hodge. Everyone was on board when it first happened - feel good story.

    i agree with a lot of the sentiment on here, yes the Ashes will always be important but that doesnt make this tournament any less important..irrespective of the format, these teams are still representing their countries on the world stage..

    The Hogg one was stupid, needs quicker wickets to be effective.

    Perhaps but most arguments against that on CW were "Hogg is a dickhead" as opposed to why he isn't a good selection.

    We don't play another t2o until India ny,unless a change in Pakistan,itinnery,not likely to be a decision to next season,a george Bailey contract suggests he will keep it.

    the most (un)amusing part for me is how the media reports on it, once we go like busted arses there is no coverage. how can you expect the average dickhead to care

    isnt it good to be picking players who are in good form from the relevant format though?-i am not debating if they were or not as i dont have the knowledge of australian domestic cricket, just the principle which sounds ok to me(unless they pick a team full of newbies who cant cut it at international level-which i certainly dont think this Aus team was)

    Chris Lynn did well in his only T20,good chance.
    But definitely Smith as captain,time to train him up like Clarke,and George Bailey(who is unsure if he will remain captain ) will never play test cricket again,neither captain it.
    Steve Smith has an excellent IPl record averages round 40,and a good player of spin,and the next T20 world cup is in India.

    t20 was made for the average dickhead so there is an irony CA can't get it past the media censors.

    oz t20 needed smith's skill, next time his captaincy. remember sixers victory under smith? had talent to win but 70% fielding batting spin
