Unlike many - I love ODI cricket. I'm not a total purist.


I don't like 20/20 anymore, but One Day grew on me in the WC with new rules that forces fielders closer to the bat for longer in the game.

In the Aus/England Test for women, and at Edgbaston, I'm loving attacking fields again with close catchers around the bat.

I love all forms.

I dont hate t20 but its my least preferred. But I still like it.

BUt I love test cricket in England. ODI is possibly my favourite. But test cricket runs a close second. t20 my least favourite, but I still like it.

Surprisingly, he has looked the most assured Aussie batter, albeit facing easier bowling.

Spoke too soon - Head out LBW!

Local Tassie boy Wade comes in to bat. He attended the same school where I taught - same as Paine!

How good is Smudger. Doesnt even duck the short ball. Moves inside it despite being square on in front of his stumps. At 84 mph. I wish I had his hand eye.

That's not just freakish skill, its freakish confidence in your eye.

not paine's finest moment there

Awful shot to a poor ball that gets Paine out. 

The Aus bowlers won’t have many runs to defend. 

Review showed Pattinson NO to a LBW that we didn’t review. 

7-112.
