Twitter post of Virat Kohli on a throne with a crown, no other team captain got same treatment.
I kinda thought you were saying things had been set up in a certain way that would increase the chances of India winning, not just icc are India fans.
Plus its a marketing thing I wouldn't read too much into it. Kholi is an icon of the sport and has near mythic status in India. None of the other captain's have that level of star power even in thier own countries.
Yeah he’s just a massively monetisable asset given his status in India, India’s love of cricket and India’s population, that’s all. Clearly the ICC is dominated by Eng, Ind, Aus so will be subject to bias and self-interest by those three, but suggesting ICC are actively trying to give India the WC is a bit tinfoil hat.
Ncurd, glad you explained ya bloody illiterate - I honestly thought you were arguing against reserve days which would be mental from you.
Anyone just see the catch in the Women's England v Windies game?
No but I love a great catch. Just tried to search on YouTube but no luck, do you have a link?
Won't let me embed it, but here's a link for now.
(Just realised that was the perfect chance to step back a few years and RickRoll you.)
Outstanding catch, always think inner field catches like that are the hardest the speed the ball is moving at and reaction times required to go that far left or right. They aren't really expected to catch anything unless it goes directly to them.
Cheers buddy, lovely catch that!
A little disappointed not to be Rickrolled though, it’s never happened to me. Would have been my virginity
Agree on that, it’s basically a reaction catch but at full stretch and the ball going at pace.
Behind her as well. Reeeeally good catch
i know it's terrible tactics but it was fun to watch pakistan take their hacks during their innings. it's a shame the weather has played such a role in the tournament.
Morgan’s innings was ridiculous - 17 6s.
But I still prefer tests with their subtleties, twists and turns to one day slogging like that.
South Africa reach 148, but 144 balls slower than Eoin Morgan
Looked like a tricky wicket by today’s standards. Par score.
Honestly regardless of the wicket any score below 250 will have any top side licking their lips.
Great match feel SA have let too many chances out there in the field.
6 balls 8 runs...best game of the tournament so far hope SA win.
That’s a proper one day wicket
Black caps need to change their team. Get rid of Munro and neesham (though he did bowl a good last over just this morning), replace with Nichols and Sochi. Yes that would get rid of two big hitters, and effectively one batsman, but our bowling is underpowered and Munro is not performing with the bat. Williamson can play the role of quick run scorer, heck he was the top batsman in that recent ipl season, and while that may sound like a bad idea to compromise one of your key rocks, with Nichols Taylor and Latham we would have 3 other players playing that role.
England. Flat track minnow bullies. Discuss.
Given Australia a kicking in their back yard in recent years. And most other teams.
Missing Roy and possibly believing our own hype too much. Still time to course correct.
