CRICKET General Cricket Discussion - 2023/24

Well Qld got there with another well made half century to Clayton, he's really impressing.

Jewell got his first double ton on the back of a good season last year - look if you want a Warner style opener - he's the one.

Pucs top scored for Vic with a nice 130 to remind everyone of how good he is, NSW collapsed before rain ended play early.

And talking about the dearth of bats in Australia at the moment - have a look at Jaiswal for India, absolute freak. Sarfaraz also coming in averaging over 60 in FC cricket.

Jaiswal averages over 70! He is also looking at his second test double ton right now in just his 7th test to go with two other scores over 170. This kid is a freak.
 
India's biggest ever test victory in terms of runs lmao

Bazball has definitely improved England but there's gotta be some common sense sometimes. They've failed to win in NZ and failed to win a home Ashes series both in part to over attacking and they've imploded here despite being in a decent position against 10 men.
 
So FC round up:
- Everyone except Vic had a pretty poor 1st innings but some players of note:
Jack Edwards - 99
Maddinson - 108
Pucovski - 131
Handscomb - 114
Sutherland - 5/51
Boland - 5/41
Davies - double failure
Lyon - 5/153
Paris - 40*, 4/48, 3/76
Green - 1/14, 1/78, 6, 103*
Jewell - 227
Webster - 100, 3/30, 10
Bancroft - 100*, 2
Hardie - no wickets, few runs and a calf injury
Carey - 49, 90, 4 catches
Renshaw - double failure
Labushagne - 38, 45
Clayton - 0, 54*
Bartlett - 2/40, 2/41
Buckingham - 2/39, 3/58
 
First T20 between Australia and NZ goes down to the final ball. Aus needs 4 off the last ball for 216
 
Just made it! Tim David just threaded the needle in the outfield
 
Wow! Tim Michael David Bevan!

Man this side can pull a victory from nowhere in short form cricket.

What a finish!

TD will be one of our best ever T20 players by the time he's done. He hasn't fully hit his straps at international level but he's still only 27, he's gonna be a great for us.
 
Best thing NZ did for us was to not drop the catch off Inglis
 
What a catch by Wade! He ran like 6km to get there and then still had to dive and got it.
 
First competition loss for Brisbane/Qld for the year :(

QLD Fire lose the WNCL final to Tasmania with the Tigers chasing the total with just over two overs left.

Fire were without JJ and the Harris sisters who have left to play WPL

Charli Knott did her best with 73 and Volly took 3 wickets but an unbeaten 111 to Nicola Carey and 63 to Heather Graham won Tassie the match
 
That is a very green pitch over in NZ, could be carnage.
 
Well done Khawaja and Smith, it has been a real grind on this pitch as the ball is moving around corners but they've made it to 50 together.
 
Smith falls to his weakness again. Such a shame as he was looking great until that very moment.
 
Australia have blunted the new ball well but the batting line up is obviously very shaky at the moment. It will be interesting to see which version of Labs we get here.
 
Labs goes for a very slow 1. He just looked so timid out there, shame what's happened to him and he is lucky really no one in FC is knocking on the door, let alone banging it down

Zero intent.

We are missing Warner badly in that regard.
 
Khawaja gone for 33. This is a tough pitch and honestly, that 33 is probably worth more than that.

In comes Head. He is 0 or 100 in tests and this situation is made for his counter attacking.

Henry is bowling grenades.
