Re: the highlight of my day (now cricket discussion thread)

I bet we see Clark at the World Cup after all.

Quote:
STUART Clark has been singled out as the man to ease Australia's bowling crisis, amid confusion about the shape of their best side less than a week before they depart for the World Cup.

Former fast bowler Geoff Lawson, who watched the tour of New Zealand as a commentator, said the 3-0 Chappell-Hadlee Trophy humiliation could have been avoided if the calm paceman had been present.

Clark is likely to be rushed into the World Cup squad if, as expected, Brett Lee is ruled out next week because of ligament damage to his ankle.

"If Stuart Clark had played in New Zealand the chances are we would have won all three games," Lawson said. "He knows where every ball is going, he is a guy who understands his tactics and he is a leader in that side. He's a mature guy, he's over 30, he's got a great cricket brain. He's the kind of guy they need out on the park to help in a crisis. It's not just his bowling that is beneficial, it's his cricket knowledge."

Indeed. I should send a link to this thread to the ACB. All their problems would be over.

Could you also forward it to the ECB too.

Easy - just need to eliminate 16 or so of the other teams. I don't think I have enough cricket balls to leave lying around on the outfield.

Re: the highlight of my day (now cricket discussion thread)

The Scots actually fancy their chances to beat Australia.....

Quote:
EDINBURGH: Scotland coach Peter Drinnen says his in-form team can add to Australia's one-day international woes by stunning the favourites in their opening World Cup match.

Drinnen, an Australian, is convinced his adopted team's recent run of good results suggests they can beat Australia in St Kitts on March 14, for what would be one of the sport's greatest upsets.

The 39-year-old believes his countrymen have never been more vulnerable following a run of five straight ODI defeats. "If we can take early wickets, which I'm sure we can with the way we've been bowling, we might cause the likes of Australia a few problems," Drinnen said. "If we get it together, we are going to be very dangerous."

I vote for him to be put in charge for that match then.


Did you hear about his ridiculous attempt at suing the ICC?

I don't know, it's to do with the whole Pakistan thing. He's seemed to be trying to get money out of that from the start.

Re: the highlight of my day (now cricket discussion thread)

Greatest Australian ODI side of all time named in Sydney yesterday. Steve Waugh is captain and five current players make the side.Seems pretty spot on to me.


Quote:
HE might have an inferior win-loss record, but Steve Waugh last night pipped Ricky Ponting for the honorary title of captain of Australia's greatest one-day international team.

Named at a function to farewell Australia's World Cup side, the all-time Australian 12 contained few surprises. The presence of five current players - Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Andrew Symonds, Brett Lee and Glenn McGrath - reflected not only the greater number of one-dayers played in the modern era compared to the past, but also Australia's until-recently breathtaking form.

The great Greg Chappell only gained a place as 12th man, and there was no room for Allan Border, David Boon, Craig McDermott or Simon O'Donnell, who all helped Australia to its first World Cup title in 1987. The only two members of that side to make the cut were Dean Jones and Waugh, who was also a slightly controversial choice as captain.

Waugh, whose appearances in 325 one-dayers remain an Australian record, led Australia in 106 matches for 67 victories - a win rate of 63 per cent. Ponting, named vice-captain last night, has a win rate of 76 per cent, with 105 successes from 138 matches.

Dennis Lillee was also regarded by many as an automatic choice, despite having played only 63 ODIs for Australia

TEAM:
Adam Gilchrist, Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Dean Jones, Steve Waugh, Michael Bevan, Andrew Symonds, Shane Warne, Brett Lee, Dennis Lillee, Glenn McGrath, Greg Chappell (12th man).

They should have made Warne captain.

Actually, Warne should have been captain of Australia and would have been except he couldn't leave the women alone. I think the selectors would have forgiven him for the Indian betting scandal if he had behaved himself in every other way. It's a pity because he has a brilliant cricket mind. The rest of his mind is not so fortunate however.

Sorry, this isn't cricket discussion, but I saw it on TV tonight and just had to share.
Brett Lee singing. It made it to #2 on the charts in India

Re: the highlight of my day (now cricket discussion thread)

Well, that is my Christmas present settled for 2007.




Quote:
In possibly the most bizarre example seen of cricket merchandising, Cricket Australia has endorsed the sale of a baby doll dressed in the national one-day cricket strip who is billed as "so Truly Real you'll love him like your own".

Richie, Bill and Co never got the chance to plug him on air during the Australian summer, but "Steve, the little Aussie supersub" is made by "Master Artist Bonnie Chyle for the Ashton-Drake Galleries", according to magazine advertisements, and "feels just like a real baby … from his Realtouch vinyl skin to his hand-applied hair, wide blue eyes and irresistible expression".

He's not a toy, mind, but "a fine collectible to be enjoyed by adult collectors", and yours for only five easy instalments of $49.95, plus - as sure as day follows night - $19.95 postage and handling.

Asked why Cricket Australia was endorsing counterfeit babies who specialised in the limited-overs form of the game, its marketing manager, Adam Vincenzini - after reminding himself of who Little Steve was - told us it was a common enough piece of merchandise.

"Plenty of other sports have gone down this path and it's just another popular item that seems to be on the wish list of fans."

Asked whether he envisaged a grandstand teeming with Little Steves in the opening match of Australia's World Cup campaign on March 14, Vincenzini said: "Who knows what will happen with Little Steve? But if it gets people closer to the team and closer to the game, then that's great."

Players took their families with them on tour these days, he said. However, for the likes of Michael Clarke and Mitchell Johnson, who do not yet have any children, it may be just the thing to ward off the loneliness on tour.
