    Pretty sure that in future LO games, a wide will be called every time a batsman misses the ball.

    When I listen to Morrison talk I struggle to see how he has 150+ test wickets. You don't need to be a genius or even smart to be a good bowler, but you need the upstairs light on at least.

    Sport-smart =/= talking-smart. Also plenty of intelligent people will sound like blubbering numbskulls if you give them a mic and put them on TV.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yeah you're probably right Albi, I'm just being a snark. No denying Morrison was a good bowler and showed guts with the bat when needed too.

    If only we could remember him just for those things.

    Munro is the bomb in limited overs. Hope he comes off in SL.

    Yeah I always used to do that too. But then I realised how much of a prick everyone would think I was if I went on TV so eased up on the judging

    You don't need to be on tv to make us think you're a ****, ****.

    Haha, full toss wicket. He'll get ripped into for not putting it away but full tosses are so ****ing annoying because they can make you do exactly that.

    I admit it: I like watching Munro when he gets it away, especially his hook shot. He's so ****ing frustrating though, because his eye is sooooo good but his technique is soooo bad.

    Latham's slipped down the order here after his 40ish(75ish) - he can boom it though in T20.
