    Cricket on Foxtel

    To all the Aussies with pay TV out there: Anyone noticed Eng vs SL is not on Foxtel? I spoke to Foxtel and they 'don't have the rights', but the cricket board websites suggest they do. Anyone else put out by this? Used to love having the English Test series and some of their domestic cricket...

    Matthew Wade

    At what point as Aussie fans do we acknowledge that we've done what I thought was unthinkable for us - pick a batsman who can keep, rather than a keeper good enough to hold his own with the gloves. Obviously his glovework has been downright filthy but it doesn't seem to have the same selection...

    John Inverarity

    Must admit I'm pleasantly suprised how well John Inverarity has done as chairman of selectors since taking over the role for CA. Every time I hear/watch him speak I can't help but be impressed with how across he is the Australian game - a real student of the game. Seemingly a very astute...

    Cricket Australia Contracts 2009-10

    Figured I'd move this from the Phil Jaques thread to create its own thread - it's worth discussing this year. Will be a very interesting list IMO. Don't think there is an official date for their announcement, its been 'in the next few weeks' for the past 6 weeks now. Anyway, my thoughts: The...

    CWXI Cricket

    Right. Does anyone agree with me that this whole thing is turning into a complete and utter farce? With the consistent and ever-present arguements going on between players, the Nikhil issue, the issues over captaincy and the board, the simulation has lost all its enjoyment and merit as far as...

    **Official** NatWest Challenge Thread

    England have made a good start here with 3 early wickets - Alex Wharf might just be a handy little ODI player by the looks of things - Nasser certainly thought so before play. Geraint Jones doesn't seem to have improved his glovework this summer, however.

    Match Fixers?

    Just had a look through some squads....Out of curiosity, were match fixers included by accident or are they held in the same regard?

    Question: It may have been answered, but I don't quite understand it... Can we use players from our Test squad in ODI's and vice versa? I have players like Jason Gillespie in my ODI squad who I would love to use in Tests... What is the rule on it?

    Tait Takes 8

    Shaun Tait has just taken 8 wickets in an ING Cup match for South Australia - 8/43 infact. He's getting close to Australian selection now IMO.
