May as well just start a cricket thread without the usual 17/18 tag so it can just keep going.
How good is Ellyse Perry going! First ever day/night Ashes test and she ends up 213 not out with a strike rate of 56.95.
The game isn't on TV only a live stream but the crowd have been rolling up at North Sydney for the night session when she got her double hundred. But it shows that cricket at night during summer works. Yeah the crowd is smaller for the girls but it's still very entertaining to watch.
Any one see what happened in India? Sri Lanka had 4 bowlers with partly finished overs on the stat sheet - never seen that before. They had the Physio and the fielding coach change into whites as they had run out of players to be fielders. Kohil just said fuck it and declared - then picked up a wicket with the first ball. If it had not all been so serious it would have been wonderful theatre.
Last night is why I love test cricket soooooo much! That drama of things not going quiet right, England starting to believe with the Balmy's in full voice sticking it to Steve Smith with no reviews left... Then Pattie Cummins........ BANG!!!!!!!!!
Hobart have a few speed demons in their bowling attack now. Tymal Mills is one bowler who can throw them down fast but he has a spinal issue at agitates his spinal cord. So his 4 day career ended a couple of years ago and he became a T-20 bowler and made a lazy $2.3 mill in the IPL this year.
