For me, the way players handle DRS is fast becoming one of the most humourous (if not entertaining) aspects of the game.
Foxtel probably had other priorities yesterday, like the guinea pig racing in Gympie.In some odd scheduling the one dayer NSW v Vics is on today (rather than yesterday, Sunday) on Foxtel, Kayo, Cricket.com.AU)
Smith, Henriques, Abbott, Cummins, Lyon playing for NSW, Pattinson, Harris, Maddison for Vics.
NSW 2-10 after 3 overs.
I thought CA did the schedule?Foxtel probably had other priorities yesterday, like the guinea pig racing in Gympie.
It is a pity how irrelevant state cricket has become in Australia, but I am not sure it is anyone's fault, rather just a product of the times.
Been done three times. Botham, Imran Khan, Shakib Al Hasan.Ashwin, 5 wickets in England's 1st innings and 100 in India's 2nd innings, a reasonable effort.
He has 1 wicket in Englands 2nd innings, would have to been a good chance of getting another 5fa.
Would have to be a first, 100 and 5 wickets in both innings if he's able to do it.
England 3/53, still needing another 429.
And now i read Maxwell is hoping to be picked for tests in Asia next year, and hopes to play a shield game or 2 this season.Finch is capt of the Aussie 3rds going to NZ so i doubt he will retire just yet.
some article said both Maxwell and Finch had come to an agreement with Cricket Victoria that because of their age, and their limited availability for red ball cricket it was best if they were just out of contention. i guess Maxwell has time to return if his availability ever increased. his last 1st class game was Oct 2019, and with the upcoming tour i doubt he would have played again this season.
EditEngland 5/90, Ashwin has 3 wickets, if he gets 2 more he'll have 10 for the match plus the ton. He got 5 poles in England's 2nd innings of the first test, so is a chance of getting 5 wickets in 3 successive test innings.
