Impressive comeback in this series by Australia, unfortunately ;-)@130 Thanks. So nothing to do with dungarees or dungeons then? Aww, poor Bob. I'll assume it's an Aussie word then, rather than my thickness this time!
Keep hammering them Khawaja boy!
@129Hate to say this but i think dunger means old or clapped out such as a car.
99 dungerBob "Don't worry mate, we can handle the likes of him. He's got nothing."Didn't doubt that for a second ;-) They're doing some of the Aussie-bashing, but do it to everyone so don't take it as meant, they wilfully fail to live up to the username...but I don't wanna stop any fun, so have at it mate!PS sorry if being thick but what's dunger mean? Is it a name? Feel free to ignore!
@96 Tom_in_Exeter "can I point people towards Guerilla cricket...commentary is generally knowledgeable, if a bit whacky at times. But it's orders of magnitude better than TalkSport's rubbish and beats TMS in my view."Cheers for the info! I take it they're one of those commentate from the TV types? Whacky usually suits me, so will check it out, thanks.(PS Better thanTMS is quite a claim ;-)
re 126..not at all..i've always wanted DW to keep his mouth shut and let his bat do the talking. hopefully management realise the mistake they made giving him too much power within the team..but not all players are angels, and success at elite sport makes a difference right? it could be argued that eng have turned a blind eye to poor behaviour previously..do you hold them to the same standards?
Scaarn on @123I'm sure that many Australians were indeed just counting down until SS & DW came back from a spot on the naughty step. All forgiven & forgotten?Trouble is their return, esp the (widely seen as toxic) DW, would suggest the true culture of CA might not have changed, and all that crying & chest-beating was just a deflection technique.The onus I'm afraid is on CA. True colours?
124: GG - you make the point exactly. SA weren't allowed to play cricket because their board brought politics into cricket - discriminating like they did more widely as a government. If India bring politics into cricket they should similarly be outcast. (I'm suggesting this incident warrants it but it should be stamped out before it catches)
re 123...glass half full....whoops, rushing at work! :-)
re 120...maybe we're just a half glass full bunch? ;-) considering we were dead and buried a few short months ago it's been a pretty strong recovery so far...Paine and the off field appointments have been strong...i think many aussies were almost counting down the days before the 'bad boys' were brought back and then performances might pick up...turns out, there may be a new 'problem' :-)
We kept South Africa out for apartheid. Wasn't that politics? India have a legitimate grievance. Terrorism is something that affects everyone. Can we expect any other country to play a sport after a ghastly terror attack. We cannot turn a blind eye. Plus the caps were done to show solidarity with the armed forces of the country. Respect the players. Dont care what the world thinks.
The problem is India still experimenting with their middle order. I think they will have a clear idea of who to pick. The usually reliable top order is also floudering. May be non stop cricket. Hope they will take a break before the world cup and not play the IPL this year.
