3rd ODI and West Indies all out for 86 which included 12 wides bowled by Australia. Xavier Bartlett again the main destroyer taking 4/21 from 7.1 overs. In reply the Australians reached the total in 6.5 overs with Fraser-McGurk making 41 from 18 balls, Inglis not out on 35 from 16 balls. It is disappointing that the Windies batting has proved so brittle.

Michael Neser is in the Australian squad to tour NZ. Richardson and Morris unavailable due to side strain. Matt Renshaw also in the squad.

The T20 last night was entertaining. 213 vs 202. It was the spectical they were hoping for. We saw good players play well.

The Womens ODI decider today from North Sydney Oval.

AUSW were poor the other day, 6 dropped catches backed up by horrible batting.

Maxy goes ballistic!
120 from 55 meaning a SR of 218.

WI thought 213 was tough the other night in Hobart, they have to get 242 tonight. That's a tick over 12 an over.

Crazy hard chase incoming.

It's all over. WI never really got close.

The Dorff has taken some serious stick in both games. Might need swapping out. Bartlett might need a go.

Wes Agar called into the team. The guy could get into the Strikers team in BBL and now he's picked in the national team. There's about 10 better options than him.

Agreed. I thought it was his brother that was selected when I saw the name. Every time I see him bowl he gives about 12 - 16 runs away per over. Big surprise, and the selectors should not be giving away Aust caps

They sent email to the wrong Agar. :lol:

Selector 1: "Game is in Perth. We should bring in a local specialist".
Selector 2: "How about Agar? He's done the job for us in the past"
Selector 1: "Great idea. Now get the work experience kid to organise it."

Australia WINS the U/19 ODI World Cup against India in South Africa. Australia bat first and make 7/253 with opener Ollie Dixon making 42 after losing partner and previous century maker Konstas for a duck. Captain Weibgen bats at 3 and made 48 followed by Harjas Singh who top scored with 55 and well supported by Ollie Peake who finished 46 n.o. In reply India are all out for 174 from 43.5 overs. West Australian fast bowler Mahli Beardman takes 3-15 from 7 overs and tall NSW off spinner Rafael Macmillan takes 3-43 from 10 overs. Queensland fast bowler Callum Vidler took 2-35 from his 10 overs, NSW seamer Charlie Anderson took 1-42 from 9 overs and NSW swing bowler Tom Straker took 1-32 from 7.5 overs.

Aussies set a massive total, mostly because they bowled pies to big Russ.

Then they let Chase bowl "land mines" to them.

They'll lose this 1 by plenty

Warner has played his last game for his country on home soil.

T20 started vs Sth Africa with 89 from 41, and finished vs WI with 81 from 49.

He's 2nd only to Finch for T20 runs, at a avg just under 34.

While he was well past his use by date as a Test opener his game is still exceptional at T20 level. He could kick in for a few more years in the various comps around the world and build a very nice retirement fund.

Aussies run chase was the only innings of the series below 200. 183 is normally a winning score.

I'm aware, but 183 isn't good enough after conceding 220.
The difference being Dre-Russ's last 7 balls faced were worth 38 runs.

It's funny when I see soo many Facebook experts telling him to retire... it's obvious none of these people understand the enormity of being blessed with the talent to play test cricket for Australia.

He'll keep trying until he and his doctors say enough's enough. Until then, just sit back and admire his grit and determination, and wish him all the best. I hope he gets back to the baggy green.

England are so incredibly arrogant and embarrassing.

But I have to congratulate Brendan McCullum on a splendid job as coach. He’s doing everything his country want him to do. #bazball

Finally got some time at the crease in Sheffield Shield.

Looking at the scorecard I reckon the deck flattened out a lot in the last 2 days. 1st innings combined 20/450. 2nd innings 10/780.

I'd argue there was about 6 overs of pure pies that let them down

Southee was defending 15, usually that's plenty
Milne went for 34 over 2 overs bowling rank ****
Santner and Sodhi went for a combined 31 in 2 overs bowling rank long hops

That's 70 odd runs right there

I only watched the kayo mini but I saw a couple of drops and misfields even the last ball he went over it.
