Big Bash

I can just imagine Doolan sitting in front of his TV, all barred up waiting to get a glimps of Binga thundering them down again.

Haha..... I'm enjoying watching the matches. Saw Wanker Lee and just wished he got smashed to all parts of Sydney. What a f****** tool he is. On the other side, Dirk Nannes has bowled some deadly stuff...

Very under rated is Dirk

Should have played a lot more for oz

Remember this is his first run since stress fractures

He's an interesting cat. He started cricket very late life and was able to bowl at 150kph. Menacing bowler. I remember checking the scores here in the Victorian District Cricket rounds one year (before he played first class cricket) and he took an unbelievable 9 for 4 in an innings :shock:

It wasn't long before he debuted for the Vics after that. Shame he wanted to give he longer version of the game away. Could have played tests easily.

Actually enjoyed the game last night, although I've got to say if the Alfonso Thomson is a Twenty/20 specialist, I'd hate to see what he serves up in the other forms of the game, because he was putrid last night.

I especially enjoy the no ball he bowled, followed up by a slower ball full toss for the free hit, I mean I know it is called a free hit, but that doesn't mean you have to gift them a 6.

Dunno who the hunny was during the innings break in tonight's T20 match, but she is a absolutely gorgeous!

Loving the Big Bash and the coverage on 10. Fantastic entertainment. UCK Ben Cutting can hit a ball! Awesome stuff.

Great to hear Sir Viv in the commentary box. And love the look of Mel McLaughlin =P~

I reckon the zing bails are a brilliant idea. They should be introduced in all forms of cricket. Certainly helps in run out situations.

Jordan Silk. That's as good a catch as I've ever seen.

An absolute sensation that catch. Unreal.

And what a f****** peanut James Hopes is. Why wouldn't you send in Ben Cutting ahead of yourself in the circumstances Brisbane Heat were it. Selfish twat!

They light up when they are dislodged.

Would make judging close runouts and stumpings easier.

Although there was the situation the other night where someone was given not out runout, because the bail was dislodged, lit up, but then landed back on the stumps, so the stumps technically weren't broken and thus the batsmen wasn't actually out.

They do add another dimension to decision making and that can only help.
Whether they're seen as 20/20 bling and not for the test arena might be the issue?

yeah maybe not for use in Test matches.

But I can definitely see a use for them in Internation Twenty20s and ODIs.

No, I'm aware of what they are, I'm just surprised Benny got taken in by the T20 garbage.

I have been romanced by it this year. I think it's fantastic. Really enjoying the whole thing.

Boy has there been some awesome catches. Another one just 5 minutes ago. Unbelievable!

Brad Hogg is on fire this year, doing some serious damage, he seems more pumped then he ever has, at 42 years old that's serious love for the game!
