    Didn't they? To be fair I didn't see much of the Sat/Sun of that game as was playing, but thought it looked ordinary whenever I was watching. Polished glass.

    Funnily enough, seems to only be when Australia plays a non-drawcard team that there is anything in the wicket at the Gabba. NZ keep coming across seamers up there.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Haha yeah I was thinking that yesterday. I'd like to think it's a coincidence or at least a cricket-based tactic; I'd hate to think it was a CA directive to prepare roads specifically to ensure five days of cricket against (only) drawcard teams..

    Nicholas, that commentary was so, so bad. You're not a cheerleader. Hang your head in shame.

    Yeah copped a pasting when I called out people for bigging up that Gabba wicket compared to this match and this match. They were all 3 flat as ****, and a little cloud cover on day 1 of the Gabba wicket made it look more threatening than it was.

    I don't mind it that much when he's clearly willing players onto their tons or whatever but Cowan had already passed his so it was time to drop it.
