Re: 2017-2018 Ashes series

I recently read on my PC " Nathan Lyon could drop every ball on a 20 cent coin" I referred to a Yorkshire cricket magazine in which Hedley Verity was acclaimed to be able to ball every ball on a " postage stamp" and Verity reputedly answered with "It would be closer to say "On a sheet of newspaper" ...

Re: Khawaja & Burns disappointing attitude.

Why do the selectors keep picking Khawaja?? you don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar to see he is simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY WEARING THE AUSTRALIAN BAGGY GREEN CAP. several players have been given far too many chances in recent years,(including the Marsh cousins),Rogers,and the biggest flop of t...
