A place to discuss cricket, whether it be the golden duck you scored in 4th grade last weekend, or a discussion about international matches.

If a team plays with 5 bats then they need 6. You DO NOT need a 2nd reserve specialist bat. can have a reserve keeper and a reserve bat like India and NZ have selected but not 2 specialist bats in reserve when 1 of them is not even going to come in consideration for playing xi throughout the tournament. Yes Australia should have had a keeper but definitely not a bat.

Hopefully I have repeated that enough times to not having to explain it again.

The number of batsmen will depend on how deep or how shallow your batting lineup will be, the same scenario as with Test teams going with either 6 batsmen or 7.

What you are saying is that Australia should actually have gone with another allrounder as the 2 selected are a given for the lineup. If one gets injured, what then ?

Having a 2nd reserve pace bowler is as redundant as having a 2nd reserve batsman for a shallow lineup.

Only if you had followed them over the last few months would you have realised that in case one AR gets injured they replace him with a bat as they DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER AR OF THAT LEVEL. But I don't think you will ever understand any squad selection or result. Waiting for the comment where you label the whole WC as fixed and all squad selections as conspiracy theories to try and lose the tournament.

Your attempt at making assumptions is extremely weak and most definitely not your strong suit. I bet you are not aware that the phrase "conspiracy theory" is actually CIA created. If you still do not believe in match-fixing despite all the widely reported cases then you are most definitely living under a rock.

I may not have been around as long as Mr Crowfan, but there is still plenty I can inform you on if you are interested.

Just to get you to tip your toe in the water, read about Operation Paperclip and then also Operation Mochingbird. These weren't "THEORIES" as the very mainstream entertainment media which you enjoy to eat from will try to make you believe. These were actual declassified operations.

A more disgusting operation to look into is Project MKUltra.

If you are able to understand the significance of these programs then you will get a picture of how things work in the world.

First of all, lets not get out of hand here

And Secondly, why you do persist in using my name at random times?
Are you infatuated with me that much?

You enjoy being part of the conversation and I just felt like including you, plus you have plenty of wisdom to share.
