Pakistan / Re: NZ vs PAK security concern - Tour cancelled

International cricket could very well be moving towards multiple governing bodies. I don't think ICC provides the balanced umbrella to all cricket playing nations. Either that or international cricket would be reduced to one or two countries playing against each other - NFL model.

Regardless, this trend of pulling out of tours or cancelling last minute just can't sustain international cricket as we know it. Without clauses in contracts for backup/alternate venues or later re-scheduling with monetary insurances, small (less lucrative) boards will suffer heavy financial losses.

Bats / Re: who makes joe root bats currently?

Bat pick-up is a personal thing. You can't say someone else's bat is too heavy, can you? Especially not when they're the number 1 ranked batsman in the world?

Sounds like someone doesn't rate Keeley!

Average size? You yourself have told me size doesn't matter (in relation to cricket bats), BG.

I repaired 2 for him before the OT test started/got cancelled , I can't say if they were made for him, but what I can say is that they were Keeley made, poorly rehandled (again by Keeley) and very average size and quality.

I've repaired a few for Rooty over the years when working at the test matches with the GN Roadshow and his Indian made LH/SB bats were far better than these (although they were always far too heavy)

Interesting! When you say they were far too heavy, do you mean set against what he wanted/usually used, or vs what you would have made for him if he had asked for something that suits him in your opinion?

Your Cricket / Re: Your 2021 Season
« Last post by LockieEP on Today at 07:25:30 AM »
Last game of the season yesterday in a "friendly" with another local club.

Very proud Dad moment to open the batting with my 13 year old lad and out on 99 for the first wicket, I fell first and gutting for Jacob as he was out caught for 89.

Sadly some strange behavior from their skipper; shouting to question ridiculous LBW appeals and then calling a 14 year old for multiple no balls when I was informed by our mid-off that over half of them were not - including the one when I took a catch off him in the slips. Oh well.

Lovely weather yesterday and always a little sad when the last game.

Yes, IMRAN KHAN had launched an elaborate scheme to get NZ over so he could ship them over to the Taliban in Afghanistan. What a moronic comment.

All the other arguments here have been reasonable, but this was just utterly idiotic

Where did I say this

If my country’s intelligence force told me it’s not safe to go, then i wouldn’t go. End of story!
Especially to a country where the prime minister has praised the Taliban
