Jake Doran must love English cricket.
Since the English U19 side arrived here, he has scored 169 in the one of youth test, thenscores of 82, 29 N/O and 102.
And he has only recently turned 18.
One to watch for the future.

Benaud was one of those that represented the best of cricket, on and off the field.
Sad for his passing and the passing of an era.

Many, if not all, subsequent cricket commentators should take a leaf out of his book.
I'd wished he'd make a ton, but 84 isn't a bad innings either.

RIP Richie. hypocrite.gif

A great loss to the cricketing world . He has been a shining beacon of intelligent and wry cricket commentary, in a sea of ordinariness.

Yes, Balance, a very clinical and mature effort. Outstanding bowling throughout, and batsmen contributing at crucial times, plus generally brilliant fielding , and dare I say it, great selections made by the selectors.
Well done Aussie cricket team.

Also, an outstanding tournament by NZ, and it must be heartbreaking for them to have been undefeated, and then come up against an Aussie team who peaked at just the right time.

I noticed that Boof hardly got a mention, but the looks of thanks on the players' faces as they greeted him after the match said a lot.

Great day for the Aussies.

Cheers
J

I hope so EB. Small totals make me nervous.
