I believe it was planned as it was the best the organisers could come up with but the virus scuppered those plans as well :roll:

Ahh well best left in proper hands next time, you'll probably win by default as per. Hopefully it pisses down again, but they find a way of throwing 1 over each team throwing boomerangs at a non guarded wicket.

Be summat like that no doubt.

Fair call out, Kenny. Should have had a reserve day.

Or at least let your girls and the Indians settle it with a bout of tag mud wrestling in the wet outfield.

I should add that Sydneysiders in the Bradman stand all agreed we would only watch if the wrestling bout was consensual.

Congratulations to Australia winning the women’s T20 World Cup.

I’ve watched a lot of this tournament and the improvement in the women’s game in the past decade is astounding.

The technical stroke play is now not far short of the men. They’re obviously a bit behind in physical strength and the big weakness is nobody can bowl much above 120 Ks - but the skills on display now make it an entertaining day out.

Congratulations to the players, the coaches, and cricket authorities for seeing the potential and investing in the game.

Congrats Vamps by default, not wanting to take any gloss off your win ( yes i do ) the tournament will always be marred by the organisers failings over a reserve day.

I think it goes for more than just cricket, womens footy and rugby etc has improved to watchable now.

It's always good to be top of a table but Test cricket is such a jumble of series with 2, 3 or 5 matches, that concocting a table which gives games played since May 2019 a 100% weighting as compared with 50% weighting for games in the two previous 12 month periods, is unlikely to mean much as not every country will have played each other on the same number of occasions. I'm not sure why there is a need to convert every aspect of life into some form of table. The only real item of note is that the last series between England and Australia ended in a draw, leaving the Ashes with Australia and England needing to improve if we are to regain the Ashes.

Yep, never given two shits about the so-called Test Table. Only interested in who we're playing now and next. Glad the Aussies are looking decent, though, 'cause it's boring to play them when they're shite.
