Hey dev, sweet cricket team. Bowled out by a bunch of teenagers in their debut tests. Also, why was Vettori dropped as captain. Surely him and McCullum are far better cricketers than Ross Taylor.

Step 1: Make 96 runs
Step 2: Push ball straight to mid off (one of the best fielders in the game)
Step 3: Run slowly
Step 4: Profit??

Hmmm...

Hey who got knocked out of the RWC in the quarters? Was it Australia or New Zealand?

Oh that's right, good ol' Ausfailia.

Can someone possibly explain Cricket to me? lol
I don't understand a single thing...what's the point of the game?

Well, unlike other sports the point of cricket is to save humanity from its impending doom. Or is it to make more points than the other team, like, you know, every sport ever? I get confused sometimes.

Each team starts with 501 points, then they both have to try and get down to 0. The quickest way to win is the 9-ball finish, that rarely happens.

I heard people sometimes call Australians sheep shaggers. I actually dunno why this is. I can understand why people would think that we shagged sheep because there's so many of them over here, but why would Australians be sheep shaggers? Do you have more sheep per capita?
#12
When I realised that both countries have heaps of sheep I found the jokes even funnier. I think Australia may have more per capita.

#3 Australia: 0.777999 per 1,000 people

#12 New Zealand: 0.213383 per 1,000 people

The National rape per capita stats. Just something to think about Mr. I-have-more-sheep-than-you

lolwut you talking bout bro (couldn't find another one)

I got my data off Nation Master. It has massive inconsistencies in it's statistics from what I understand. There is no Australian entry on the wiki page.

Australia: 0.21 0.15 0.26
New Zealand: 23.05 19.13 22.48

Australia is 3rd, NZ is 12th on the ibm site

NationMaster: INCONSISTENT RESULTS
Wikipedia: NO ENTRY FOR AUSTRALIA
unodc: New Zealand has more rapes in 1998 and 1999, but Australia has more in 2000.
ibm: Australia has more rape.

Obviously Australia has more rape going by your sources.
#16
I refuse to believe that Australia is 3rd and New Zealand is 12th anyway. Surely African and South American countries are like the top 30.

Maybe this is why we have a lower rape rate. Sheep are naturally sluts.

It was the sheep's fault for dressing provocatively.

Why is your best test batsman at 7?
Also lolMcCullum
lolTaylor

And finally, why oh why in god's name do we have Warner in the goddamn test team?

Also fun fact, I started playing 1st XI the season after Tim Southee finished school and everytime we toured Tauranga and played their 1st XI Kane never played

You're complaining after making 295? Should have tried supporting England in the 90's...
Up The Boro!
#25
295 is a tricky total to negotiate, especially when you lose your fuckwit t20 specialist opener in the 2nd over. After our capitulation against SA, I'm a tad concerned. How the hell we managed to let Brownlie get 77no is beyond me.

I forced my parents into it. When I first came to them (7yrs old) wanting to play cricket they sorta looked at me in a weird way that seemed to say "Lawd, why?!" But now they both love it.

^I would love it if you convinced me otherwise. Lets face it, he got selected for a reason.

All the guys I know that got bought up playing cricket have mad coordination and great throwing arms now.
#30
Yeah there's truth in that. Although I've always fielded in slips/in close so my throwing has remained remarkably average

I have a decent throwing arm from playing softball (Yeeeeah massive balls) but not quite as coordinated as my cricket playing bros.
#32
I'd imagine it's probably the difference between having to aim at a target with a giant glove and can move around in case you don't get it quite right as opposed to cricket where a lot of the time you have a short, thin piece of timber in the ground that you need to hit.

In saying that, we were generally told to look at softball/baseball fielders and pretty much be like that in the outfield. The same rings true with throwing technique so who knows

This year he scored over 400 runs in 4 innings for Aus A (against Zim admittedly) and has averaged 60 for NSW in shield cricket.

You're doing better than many then
I'll freely admit it's an acquired taste. I, for one, can't watch basketball of any shape or form, it just bores me to tears. I usually get a lot of shocked and horrified looks upon saying that

Has he been spending significant time at the crease though? Or is he rocking strike rates of >70?

Cricket, Baseball, Softball, Darts, Bowling

Those are the least entertaining sports to watch basketball doesn't even rate a mention on that list.

Strike rate of 66 with NSW. I'd say that's a pretty good record. It seems like he's working on his game in the longer format and with the current injuries I reckon it's a good idea having him around. I've got more hope for him than Hughes really.
