The Cricket Thread

Semis should be good, an Aus v NZ final would be quite the spectacle.

Anyone else watching the crickets greatest series on sky sports? It's superb stuff, 30 min documentaries on great players. Watched the Curtly Ambrose and Michael Holding episodes this morning, that's what I call fast bowling!

Darren Berry sacked as South Australian coach after fifth Sheffield Shield wooden spoon in last 6 seasons. Jason Gillespie being spoken about as a possible coach, especially as he has been appointed coach of Adelaide Strikers for the Big Bash League.

Predictably tight in Auckland, rain leaves nz require 298 off 43, still very much in the balance and I have to go to work. ????

This game is fantastic. New Zealand now need 11 off 5 balls to win.... There's just been a crash of South African fielders in the outfield as both went for the same ball.

Wow what a finish.

Nz needed 5 from the final two balls to win. Elliot smashed the second last ball for a 6 and the Kiwis are in the final.

Superb cricket.

Aussies beat India by 95 runs in Sydney. New Zealand v Aussie final it is then, guess that's the final most neutrals wanted.

Would be quite a story if NZ could win the World Cup against Australia in Melbourne. Can't see past the Aussies though. Mitchell Starc has been superb this World Cup.

Surely anyone that gives a f**k about this and isn't Australian wants the Kiwis to win? The thought of ubercunt Mitchell Johnson, uberhick Mitchell Starc (Harry Kane's Australian cousin), and uberubercunt Shane Watson celebrating is enough to give any right-minded citizen the boak.

Sadly I can see this being a bit 2003 final, Australia win the toss, bat, score 300 (which at the MCG is pretty much 400 anywhere else) and McCullum out in the first over with NZ crawling to about 210 all out.

Michael Clarke retiring from ODI after tomorrow's final so the Aussie media will be in overkill mode, more so if Australia win. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-03-28/michael-clarke-to-retire-from-odis-after-world-cup-final/6355718

Michael Clarke seems like a good guy. Unlike Watson. Then again, Matthew Hayden seems alright, and he was a complete dick as a player.
