Not entirely sure that is the right way forward, but it will be great to have his services again, we defo need them!

Stokes wouldn't be the first cricketer to have his collar felt by the law.

Think he deserves a second crack, IMHO, though hopefully lessons have been learned.

Enjoyable watching Australia play like England did before and during the 2015 World Cup. Making daft team selections, not picking best players, choosing bits and pieces cricketers, playing top order batsmen in the lower order and thinking 270-300 is 'par'.

Have tickets to the Perth ODI at the new stadium so very much looking forward to that and hopefully a 5-0 win.

Smith has just got one of those dislikeable faces!

Remember him circling the boundary at Chelmsford in the Essex match in 2015, as he wasn't playing.

There was polite applause and a bit of mild banter as he walked past, but he didn't even look up, let alone acknowledge the crowd in any way. Miserable git!

I know what you mean, I have that feeling with Samit Patel and my favourite player on the International scene Virat Kohli:smile:

Great to see England win this series but it's not without a pang of regret.

This should have been the core of England's last world cup XI but instead of the likes of Roy and Hales at the top of the order those clowns Moores and Whitaker were picking Ian ****ing Bell and we got knocked out by Bangladesh. Australia went onto win that tournament when we had the players who could have won England's first ever ODI Cricket World Cup.

2019 in England has to be our best shot ever. Being England I do have this fear that we could totally lose this electric ODI form in a year though.

We completely ****ed this one right up... we were just 8-5 at one stage after just 6 overs! :stunned:
