This bloody Aussie team appear to have found form, stability, and some decent new blood at the worst possible time. :x

Have you guys seen the DRS controversy surrounding the Aussies?

Apparently the Indian team had noticed the Aussies looking toward their balcony for confirmation on whether to use reviews on close decisions. Kohli, who had already mentioned this to the umpires off the field, pounced when Smith looked up at the Aussie dressing room to try and get some assistance on whether it was worth reviewing his own dismissal.

DRS has now, temporarily, been meme'd as Dressing Room-Review System. :lol:

Good stuff from Root and Hales. Everyone else is giving it away.

It's a glorious day in Sussex to mark the start of the domestic season. Anyone seen the IPL thus far? Highlights can be found on Reddit (r/Cricket).

A losing effort indeed but you know the ECB will be looking for any excuse to recall him. The last thing England needs is Gary Ballance touring Australia against one of the teams that helped expose the flaws in his technique.

I've got lots of IPL highlights to catch up on but just seen his score - 89* with a 193 SR. :lol:

Scored 58 off his last 18 balls. RCB would have been utterly screwed in that inning without him.

The Chef. :wub:

Hopefully Jennings can convert today as well if he doesn't run out of teammates.

South Africa squad for the May ODIs (and likely Champions Trophy, barring injuries):

Hashim Amla
Quinton de Kock
Faf du Plessis
AB de Villiers
JP Duminy
David Miller
Chris Morris
Wayne Parnell
Andile Phehlukwayo
Kagiso Rabada
Imran Tahir
Dwaine Pretorius
Keshav Maharaj
Farhaan Behardien
Morne Morkel

Meanwhile, Australia have angered most of Australia by omitting James Faulkner from their CT squad. :lol:

Vince and Ballance scoring runs. They're gonna get a recall aren't they.

ffs. Balance just loves the Hants bowlers. I think that's three centuries in three or four innings against them at the start of this season. I am desperate for him not to be recalled.
