Well that’s 2 wins and 2 Canberra losses.... both batting second without Warner .....
Did you hear the mumbled 'threat' yesterday that Prof Spurrier was talking about people having to wear masks at the cricket? My thought, have a glass permanently welded in your hand as you can't wear one while drinking.

Can one wipe the ball with the mask then?

That is classic BBL stuff. Junk game.
I think Prof Spurrier has been silenced a little these days. No more mask comments.

I have never seen Will Pucovski bat but while he is apparently very talented he is having terrible problems with concussion. For those who have seen extensive coverage of him is their some flaw in his batting style that makes him more susceptible to being hit in the head? Or is it a combination of bowlers knowing that he has problems with the short-ball and that he lacks confidence in dealing with them?

I think there are many factors at play here.

This is not strictly Cricket 20-21 but a fascinating and sad story. The cap is up for auction because the person who owns it, is currently in jail and he has to make reparation for his crimes to his victims.

I met Sir Don a few times, as my Great Aunts were friends of his, from cricket days in Sydney and then Adelaide, we grew up with stories of how he interacted with my family on my mother's side. We have a couple of letters from him to us. He gave us a signed book of his autobiography with a personal letter. Needless to say they are locked away.

Apparently $7 million vanished... short of a miracle it’ll make perhaps $2 million

It's a really sad tale isn't it, for everyone. I guess if it was my money vanished I wouldn't have sympathy for him. I heard some 'expert' - maybe Chappelli 😂 say he didn't think it would go for a million but less.

Yes, the discussion suggests it will sell for less than Warnies.

however, should there be a white knight who knows, as the 40 creditors owed $7 million stand in line behind the Govt 7% and the bankruptcy trustee.... sighs

you can follow along online at Don Bradman's Baggy Green I Pickles.
closes on first day of the first Test 17 Dec

Stumps 6/233

the first over chop on and Kohlis run out were diabolically bad... thinks India is 50-80 runs short for the day but only about 20 minutes of evening “swing”....

You were nearby to family. MrP spoke to friend who is on the AO committee and most members only received one day allocation for the first three days.
