    Glenn Maxwell- What are CWs thoughts on this article?

    I'd like to imagine in cricketing heaven that Hughes has already found Archie Jackson and they're sitting, smiling and discussing what might've been, and also discussing how fickle both batting and life can be. Maybe Trumper sits close by, nodding.

    Did someone just lift Dan's shot at Devcich and use it against Maxwell?

    Well played.

    Maybe it is the same risk as playing the cover drive, and I actually don't mind that. But when you're trying to bat for 2 days to see out a draw you shouldn't be playing the reverse sweep OR the cover drive, you ****wit.

    playing the reverse sweep is fair if you can get it away as well as a straight drive i suppose
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    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

    Fair based on use of batter instead of batsman.

    Keating couldn't give a **** about the Australian cricket team.

    The article is a crock of ****. The 50s was the height of the Menzian torpor, in societal, economic and cricketing terms. Cricket nearly died in the 50s. It was horrible. I bet the ****wit who wrote that article laments 100 overs not being bowled in a day, despite the fact that when they were, teams would go to stumps at 4/170.

    He's a ****.

    But then, so is Maxwell.

    Terrible article.

    Maxwell is probably right about a cover drive and a reverse sweep being equal risk for him, and that he was likely to get out quicker if he was defending instead of attacking.

    The problem isn't how Maxwell batted, it's that he was picked to begin with.

    nah i cant cop that it's the same risk, he might think he's good at the reverse sweep, he might even be alright at it but a cover drive will always be less risky

    I don't even care about that. The suggestion that it's less risky than a forward defense though. Sheesh. If that's the case you shouldn't be playing test cricket bud.

    my favourite bit of that dumb article is:

    Excuse me? That’s probably the most arrogant thing I’ve ever read – and I’ve read the Latham Diaries.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    Dead set how many blokes schnick off cover driving versus how many runs they score off it, especially early in innings.

    Maxwell's reverse sweep is no different to everyone else's normal sweep shot.
