It's the fact he lied to Morgan more than once about the coke that is why bridges are burnt
Its dumb though just a bit of coke and a few porkie pies

Stokes could have easily killed someone. He pulls that stunt here and he gets charged under the one punch law

Always wondered about that law. So if you really get stuck in with a volley of punches, are you exempt from this particular charge?

yeah so the act doesn't specifically criminalise "coward punches" (king hits or one punch assaults or whatever you want to call them), the scope is assault causing the death of the other guy

now what the problematic part of that reform is, is that it also forces judges to impose a mandatory sentence of at least eight years if you're intoxicated and you fall foul of the assault causing death provision of the act - and to me mandatory minimums are a disgusting legislative overreach and a constraint on judicial power with next to no legitimacy; the parliament shouldn't be sentencing offenders because they are not judges, but that's what this is; the upshot of a glib law and order dirge in the public rallied by the usual suspects in the media and in the state parliament back to the o'farrell years and continuing today

ahem

and that was "legal corner"

Anyway....

anybody else looking forward to THE music before live play for the first time in over two decades, many of you not even born, but giving me a gooey feeling, even for a pointless hit and giggle.

Idk what the deal with Mahmood is. Doesn't seem to have anything special and isn't very consistent yet. Hope I'm wrong like, since England seem quite set on him

Why do england find lots of batting for 20/20 but a clueless bowling attack apart from Rashid.Surely we have better bowlers than Jordan Ali and Mohamed in county cricket.
