  • Why Ricky? Why?

    No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to get over or understand what happened on Day 4 at Nagpur after Tea. After following this grueling, at times tedious and mundane series for 18 and 2/3 days on radio, finally some drama had arrived during th...

  • I Wish Australia Lost!

    Before you begin attacking me for what is probably quite an un-Australian statement, especially when talking about sport, just hear me out for why I think Australia should have lost a game in the Rugby League World Cup. There is no denying that...

  • Around the Wicket - 4th Test Review

    Okay, well I suppose I had better review the 4th test. Before I do, I might just say that I am glad this series is over. Australia/India series are starting to become remembered for all the wrong reasons, rather than for the cricket being played b...

  • Around the Wicket - 4th test Preview

    So the test series is about to draw to a close, as the 4th test begins in Nagpur on Thursday. The equation is simple. Anything but an Australian win sees the Border/Gavaskar trophy back on Indian soil. For the Indians, they only need to draw the t...

  • Around the Wicket - 3rd Test Reviewed

    Well, I guess we’re all wrong sometimes. I doubted Australia would have the nerve to hold on this test match, and I even suggested India would win sometime on day 4. In fact, what happened was that we saw a big momentum swing after day 2 of the te...

  • Around the Wicket - 3rd Test Preview

    The 3rd test begins in Delhi on Wednesday, and it is last roll of the dice stuff for the Aussies. If they lose here, the Border/Gavaskar trophy returns to India. A draw keeps the series alive heading into the final test, and an Aussie win, whilst ...

  • Around the Wicket - 2nd Test Review

    Australia vs India 2nd Test Review 2 tests left to play in India, and just 2 chances left for Australia to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Lose either test, and the trophy goes to India. It’s hard to see how Australia can sneak a win at the ...

  • Rugby League World Cup - Does the world really care?

    So the time has again arrived for one of the worst World Cups. The Rugby League World Cup has been held inconsistently since 1954 and the 13th Cup is being held on home soil. Logic would tell anyone that the winner is going to be New Zealand, G...

  • Around the Wicket - 2nd Test Preview

    India vs Australia – 2nd Test Preview OK, off to Mohali for the 2nd test, in what is possibly the most crucial match of the series. A win here for either side means the other side has to win the final two tests to win the series. So what ca...

  • Around the Wicket - 1st Test Reviewed

    Australia vs India - 1st Test Reviewed So the first test is done and dusted, and we got a very good test match played by two very good teams. Given the track was low and slow, the draw was always going to be the favoured result, despite bookies...
