Re: Why are ozzies such porkers?

I was conceived on Nauru so I'm definitely blaming that for my "spread" in my 30s and 40s. How were you conceived? The Wheelbarrow? The Backwards Wheelbarrow? The good ol' Missionary? The Sideways Spaniard? The Double Twisted Moroccan? The Dirty Mexican? :uhoh:

Bowling attacks are better than 10 years ago.

Australian attack is better
English attack has aged like a fine wine
NZ attack is better
INdian attack is better
WI is shit as always
Pakistan...much of a muchness.
SL probably worse
SA probably worse, maybe.

Overall I think it's a little better.

I'd take Australia's attack over NZ's also. Just being honest. I mean we don't even have a spinner. Shatner doesn't count.

Southee/Boult/Wagner are certainly no mugs though, and Williamson/Taylor can hold their own against Smith/Lasagne.

Re: Will Kyle Jamieson become the world's best all-rounder?

Considering Australia is struggling to win a test at home against lowly India, it is fair to say it makes sense that the worlds best allrounder would be playing for the words best test team. India were NZ's pass around plaything earlier in the year afterall.

Good bit of resistance from WI but overall really is sad to see what they have become in the test game. They have a top order of guying averaging in the 20s. That's an early 2000s Bangladeshi level of mediocrity.
