I'll admit I've been a bit distracted as of late because of irl things, so I've fallen off the wagon when it comes to cricket. Have heard about the rumblings about a pay dispute between the players and CA at the moment though.

Which has been suggested as a reason they ballsed it up this time around. Still, always nice to thrash the old enemy. Just ask India.

That said, this has actually been a pretty good tournament. England aside, plenty of upsets - including Pakistan > SA, SL > India, and Bangladesh > NZ in three days. The tourney itself's an antiquated dinosaur, a symbol of elitism, and basically stupid... but due to the quality of some of the cricket, it's actually doing quite well. (Today's match is a stinker, mind.)

I'm half tempted to make a retort regarding the upcoming Ashes series to that, but if CA continues to be CA there's a good chance half the teams going to be in awful form because of pressure off the pitch yet again.

Still good to hear the tourney's had some good matches, even if by the sounds of things Australia was alas not a contributing party to them.

Athers (or any admin. foolish enough to stumble in): we need a title change. This is the biggest thing to happen in world cricket since... well, since Bangladesh got accepted probably.

After about fifteen years (I think), the ICC has once again slowly expanded its boundaries. Afghanistan and Ireland are full members! That means more Tests! Albeit probably not in Afghanistan for a while. Still, it's all but unarguable that this is a great thing! Hoping for the first Ireland vs. England Test before too long. (Ireland will probably get thrashed, but it's the symbolism of the thing.)

So, yep. More Tests! Title change! And the women's world cup is happening now too, so that's good.

Title changed, good news about Ireland and Afghanistan that is.

Did you go see it? It's not the format that Athrun and myself care much about, but if it got another person on this forum to go see it, then all good!

I didn't even know it was on in till it was brought up in the morning huddle at work and how the store might be dead due to roads closed and the game going on (I don't know what format, it was) but I know someone that went and have been too few games this year including going in the posh boxes at the county ground.

I think one of the women's world cup games was today as well and if someone at work etc asked about going I would, just to say I've been but it would have to be a format where someone wins in a day.
