      Namibia are very white for an African nation.

        That's very sad about Shakib.

          That's awful about Shakib. Perhaps I'm just being optimistic, but his statement seemed very contrite. But it's awful for Bangladesh, and for cricket as a whole, to have such a high quality batsman, one who only seems to be getting better and better, and a bowler also, banned. Well, number threes who bowl and captain don't come along that often, the game is all the poorer for his absence.

              Love the PNG caps. Looks like they play for one of those expensive all boys schools.

                Looks like Pakistan were in something of an inflated position in the T20 rankings. And indeed will remain top after Australia reach what should be a routine target.

                From the Graun - Spain and Australia are the two countries on six-match winning runs in T20Is.

                  Looking forward to seeing them at the men's T20 World Cup next year. They have a record of 2 wins and 3 defeats in T20Is against Test side's (yes, both wins were against Ireland, what of it?) so they have a decent chance of getting through of getting through to the super 12.

                    Finch 52, Warner 48, no losses and 49 balls to spare. Oof.

                          That's shite. Poor Pav. Maybe he can toss a few up at Lord's next year if the Australians don't let him come?

                            Fun fact from Legside Lizzie - Australia have selected Joe Burns so there's a chance that two Test sides will open with a player called Burns on the same day;NZ v Eng starts the day before Aus v PK.

                              He might need a visa to come to the UK too by the time the cricket season rolls around

                                Decision reversed and Florin gets his visa https://www.ecl.cricket/news-all/cri...n-visa-victory

                                In other good news (actually significantly higher order good news than the previous) Pakistan will get to play home tests again, and symbolically will start with a 2 match series against Sri Lanka this December

                                    India appear to have scored 400 in a day in the first Test against Bangladesh, Agarwal getting another big score. Gonna be horribly one-sided this series

                                          The Abu Dhabi T10 series is live on FreeSports - T10 presumably being for those who think T20 is too long-winded. Anyway, yesterdays game between Deccan Gladiators and Team Abu Dhabi was abandoned after a rain delay and there wasn't the official documents stating what the target required was under Duckworth-Lewis.

                                            The revised target under D/L was also a farce - 37 off 16 balls - because you just can't apply D/L to such a short format:

                                              Nice of Australia to declare with Warner 335 not. Meanwhile there's an eventful first couple of overs of the Pakistan reply, two lbw shouts for Starc, then Shan Masood given out which was overturned on DRS, then Australia amusingly piss away a review when a Cummins delivery is deemed to have pitched outside leg.

                                                It always pleases me when a bowling side's lbw review is overturned because it pitched leg side, or there was some bat on it. I bet the umpires love it, probably thinking something like "Yeah, I know it was in line and I know it was hitting,,, but you've forgotten something else, smart arse." And the batters must have learned to keep quiet and just shuffle around at those moments if they are given not out, especially if they felt it hit the bat, knowing there's a chance that a review could be burned.

                                                    First test match in Pakistan for over ten years is now underway. Sri Lanka 89-0 at lunch
