    why he's not started in the 50 over side is anyones guess. Maybe they think him and christo is too much the same.
    wtf am I on then? I could've sworn he moved to Melbourne to play. I even knew he'd been taking lots of wickets but I thought there were in Premier cricket. WTF

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Sportsbet tasting it so hard this week. 3 out of the 4 games the losing team hit over 160 so all losing bets refunded.

    SA OD team isn't that easy to get in. I don't blame Berry for playing Ross. I actually really enjoy watching SA/Strikers play these days in short form cricket.

    They need to find a way of making it brighter imo.

    And how does it work? Does it have an accelerometer of some sorts or does it use contact switches where the bails are supported? If it's the latter yeah it could be useful.

    playing ross would be much more defensible if he'd made any runs in grade cricket or futures and his selection didn't reek of coaches son treatment.

    TV ratings for round 1:

    2011
    Sydney Sixers vs Brisbane Heat: 342,000
    Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder: 488,000
    Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades: 349,000
    Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes: 273,000
    Average: 363,000

    2012
    Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades: 344,000
    Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder: 237,000
    Brisbane Heat vs Hobart Hurricanes: 224,000
    Perth Scorchers vs Adelaide Strikers: 206,000
    Average: 252,750

    So that is a fall of 30% from last year's kickoff. Ouch!

    TV ratings are up there very highly on my pet peeves - they are just a guide, so I wouldn't take the 30% fall too personally especially when overseas networks have bought rights this year like Sky did.

    Plus, there'll always be the fact that it was the first round last season, so there's heightened interest from that alone.

    The side on vision doesn't look all that bad, IMO.

    Am pretty sure he's been tested and cleared.
