Well there isn't a cricket thread so I might aswell make one.

Anyway it's the ICC Trophy going on right now. Australia beat England in the Semi-Final and right now it's New Zealand vs Pakistan.

New Zealand needing 59 from 48 balls with 6 wickets left. That game is gonna have an interesting finish. I hope New Zealand win, and then beat Australia. It's about time they won something.


But Australia are probably going to win it, if it comes down to an AU vs NZ final. If it's Australia vs Pakistan then they could lose. Who'd have thought after all the shit going on in Pakistan and the attacks on the Sri Lanka cricket team that they'd still be winning shit and doing good in International Cricket

I'm surprised England got to 257 tbh. Fail bowling to tail enders again...

And
New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 13 balls remaining)

Australia v New Zealand in the final.  Hopefully Australia bats first so it'l be a high scoring game

16/1 after 8 overs with McCullum out. Not looking good for NZ.

Yeah, NZ also lost Vettori. They probably have no real chance. It'll be an amazing upset if they do, even if they had Vettori tbh. Australia are still the best ODI side right now. They may have lost the Ashes and suck at 20/20 and everyone keeps saying they're on a downturn but when you have players with names like T-Pain you know you still got it


But you never know ... anything can happen in sports...

Id like NZ to win for the same reason as for eg Zimbabwe.  Im not comparing the two, NZ are pretty fucking good at the ODI's.  But instead of going for the underdog I will go for the deserved winners.  Strayer.

Congrats Strayer.  Im not going to jump up and down, piss my pants and crack a stiffy over it though, its like the poor mans WC, however, nobody put out their 2nds and you can only beat whats in front of you and its one more throphy than England, but you would swap it for the one we won wouldnt you?

England/we same sentance??? Mental eh?

Wickets, what happens when you hit that thing the thrower stands in front of, etc.

The person running to/closest to it gets out. Unless they are behind a line called a crease of course.

I think cricket is one of the hardest sports in the world to describe to a complete outsider, theres just so many different elements to it.

I wouldn't say so... bowler balls, batsman sees ball, batsman hits ball, batsman sprints to the other end.

But then people ask questions like "Why didn't he run that time" and "Why is he out for it hitting his leg" and so on.  The absolute bare essentials of any sport are easy but once you start to get into a little detail with cricket it becomes very difficult.

what the fuck is happening to our team

before series:

clarke out
bracken out
haddin out

so like three of our best players, including our most destructive batsmen + keeper and best odi bowler, and vc

during series

lee out (lame)
hopes out (sorta lame as well)
paine out (lame)
johnson injured

ffs... at this rate we'll be playing like australia b (captained by ponting, vc hussey since they never get injured...) in three matches' time.
