    i really like all the comms ( / actually nasser himself ) talking about how much of a cheap skate nass is. No surprise, considering everything you hear from when he was here, but hilarious nonetheless.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Yeah. So much fun to watch. No current bowlers come close.

    So good. Loved these masterclass videos. The KP one was really good, and this one probably better. Warnie's not lost it has he. Still has so much control, the way he'd explain in detail exactly what he was going to bowl, and then execute it perfectly was awesome. Leg spin is one of those arts that is so hard to perfect, but Warne absolutely nailed it. What a bowler, made even better by his cricketing brain. Great to watch.

    Not sure where to post this, but Sky Ashes is currently showing highlights of the Adelaide test from 94/95.

    I'd forgotten quite how sharp Junior Waugh was before his back went. Just saw him bounce out Crawley.

    No speed guns in those days, but reckon he'd be a decent lick.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Apparently Warne was throwing down pies in prep for the masterclass before the camera turned on. He is/was just something else.

    I've loved the England's Best Days reruns on Sky Ashes, just watching yesterday's Cardiff 09 day five highlights and been reminded of Mitchell Johnson booting off on KP during the warmups

    I liked the 'best days' thing too but repeating the same half dozen all summer instead of showing warm-ups or highlights has been so disappointing.

    Tbf Sky only have 20 odd years or so to pick from. Makes the England one a bit limited. But I've only caught a few so hasn't grated on me.

    It's been a pretty poor effort really. Have only shown footage from four tests of the last two series for example.
