    Yeah, I remember reading/hearing somewhere that he was just utterly, utterly disinterested in Sydney in particular. Could not give a **** any more.

    No wonder he and Warne get along so well. Pair of complete tools.

    Thats how Australia used to win matches, having Gilly come out and smash the ball around served two purposes. It demoralised the opposition and gave the team enough time to win the match. All Cook and Broad did was to give the impression to the Australian batsmen that if they didn't do anything stupid they could just meander to an easy draw. You have to take the game on to win in those situations and playing safe is basically just going to give you a draw.

    Considering his past record, I'm surprised KP has lasted as long as he has at the Melbourne Stars.

    Interesting article by Jarrod Kimber on his time with ABC Grandstand radio. I fully agree with his depiction of why ABC's coverage went downhill; it's loss of Lane, Roebuck & Kerry (was a bit meh on Glenn Mitchell) they haven't really recovered from.

    Perhaps unintentionally, but Kimber's account in dealing with management suggests the ABC is an organisation stifled by far too many managers and bureaucracy to function as effectively as it should and sort of reinforces the negative stereotypes that it's overstaffed in management because it's a government organisation.

    True, but KP seems like he couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag.

    That's a great article, thanks for the link. It's so sad what's become of ABC cricket, starting with the resignation of Tim Lane. They really should just look to the BBC, they have a superb and relevant model there to learn from and tailor to Australian sensibilities.

    Considering his learning difficulties and educational handicaps, I am very surprised Cricket Australia have allowed David Warner to continue to have a Twitter account while he is playing for Australia.

    I understand it's a difficult situation, especially in the current climate of political correctness.

    Maybe Jason Gallian thought he was in the bag when he threw it off a balcony.

    We've just had an entire competed over from Broad which the ABC grandstand commentators thought was bowled by Curran...

    Mind you, they are probably more interested in this genuinely interesting discussion on salary cap manipulation in the BBL
