    and that's why Hussey played 48553 first class games before he got selected, because the selectors picked on form.

    If they picked on form in Australian domestic cricket then I'm not sure he would've ever played at all tbf.

    Huss's rise coincided with his moving down the order for WA in OD'ers and being really good at it so he was 'in-form' in a sense. A good season as an opener just sealed the deal, really.

    Commentators constantly referring to "deep long on" or "deep mid off" when they mean long on or long off...

    Almost every position has a deep version.

    Deep mid on, deep mid off, deep mid wicket, deep cover, deep fine leg.

    You don't hear anyone saying long cover.

    Long leg is squarer than fine leg, they're different positions.

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
