    Icon5 Who tasted it harder?

    After Abul Hasan just knocked up a brilliant run a ball century on debut for Bangladesh, we have a new contender for greatest Cricket Chat taste of all time.

    NUFAN said this just before the start of play:

    As we all know, the clubhouse leader for taste has been Spikey's effort when talking about Ben Hilfenhaus prior to the Boxing Day test vs India last season:

Now I know you're gonna point out all the injures, but we all knew the dropping of Hilf was a reluctant one. The guy still got ****ing picked for the 5th Ashes test for heaven's sake. Did we cut the CA contract? Nope. We sent him to the Aus A tour where he was in a battle with Copeland and Siddle instead! And where of course he utterly terrible. Was that the last straw, at least in the short term? Of course not! He got picked for Aus A against NZ where even Starc outperformed him. He was so so so bad during the ashes. It may have actually been the worst series performance by an Australian bowler in an Ashes series, keeping in mind this was over 4 tests. So many flaws got shown up; the lack of threat posed by him of course being at the forefront. So after 6 ****ing FC games, at an average of over 30, where his two best bowling performances have featured cleaning up the tail, he's fixed them? I'm deadly serious when I say give me Josh ****ing Lalor instead. Are we gonna pick Hughes asap if he scores two 50's in his Shield games at the end of the season and claims his bad form was because his pet Dog Buster died?

    But hey good luck on boxing day buddy. Given you average 65 at the MCG you'll need it
    Ofcourse Ben Hilfenhaus ended up taking 5 wickets in the first innings of the Boxing Day test and finishing the series with a series high 27 wickets and an average of 17.

    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

    Definitely Spikey. He was so invested in that rant. Put all his outrage on the clothes line, and got owned over an entire series.

    Spikey, as lets face it Nufan was on about the bowling and he could end up being right. The fact the lad has played a freaky innings which nobody could have expected lets him off.

    see the thing about spikey is that was just about the first (only?) detailed post about cricket he made. makes it all the more tasteful imo

    I mean, on the whole Adam Goodes showing skidmark00 up in such a fashion on the biggest stage was awesome, but that he did it against Hawthorn, the team skidmark00 loves as much as his own team, just pushed it to the next level.

    Spikey's rant basically defines what tasting is I think. There can be no finer example of someone tasting it.

    Ironically how many wickets Hilf took in that first innings.

    i feel like i should note that i'm kinda pissed they've already named hilf for the upcoming test. i mean like, the problem is his arm position, how ****ing dumb are they gonna feel if tomorrow morning in the warm-up's he's all over the shop? should have waited til then tbh. not like he would have killed himself today if the team wasn't named
