    James Pattinson Retires From International Cricket

    One of my favourite bowlers. He's everything a bowler should be - fast, handsome, full-chested and a good orator. Everyone thought he had an almost perfect bowling action, apart from his back. Just loved watching him bowl while I massaged the man crush I had on him. There's no way he could have...

    Shane Bond vs Mike Tyson

    Both, at their time, the fastest in the world and, at their peak, among the most unplayable throwers of projectiles ever. Both had careers cut cruelly short. Bond: 18 Tests, 87 wickets at 22.09, strike rate 38.70. Tyson: 58 fights, 50 wins, 44 by KO , 6 losses, 2 no results Who would you pick?

    New/fairly unknown player you are rooting

    What are some up and coming players you are enjoying rooting? I will go ahead and name Harry Horsemember from Dubbo. He's a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a riddle. A suave, debonair country guy who can bowl at 145kph with both arms and is a real stallion in the sack. On his day, he...

    Apologies for the outage over the last hour everyone. Our server ran out of disk space again. I'll be looking at some extra disk-space for the server as soon as possible.

    What's more likely? Smith averaging more than Bradman's 99;94 or Lyon beating Swann's efforts by retiring BEFORE the 3rd test starts?

    Michael Clarke's Announcement Before The 2nd Test

    Given the announcement that Kyly and Michael were expecting a baby days before the 1st Test in Cardiff, what can we expect him to announce before the 2nd Test at Lords? Note: Option 2 should be 'Australian' obviously...but my ipad is ****. Note #2: Should also be 'Michael'...can someone edit...

    Is Matt "Irongloves" Prior the best keeper England have?

    Always struck me as being pretty overrated - an OK keeper + a mediocre batsman at best - was a massive comedown from Geraint Jones. He's averaged 19 in the tests he's played this year against lowly Australia. Surely South Africa have got a younger keeper they can give England who could at least...

    Should bowling be banned from Cricket?

    In my opinion yes, it would give Australia a tiny chance of actually batting out a day.
