    I don't remember from years ago, but it seems like England have become sore losers...........2019 rugby world cup - they're still whining. This Test will be the same (imho). It's pitiful when a country can't take a sound thrashing.

    It's going to be very interesting to see/hear what the UK press are going to say about their "world beating" team............fact is, both teams actually played on the same pitch. Root as a bowler, 5 for 8..............now there's a stat to consider!

    Not sure two day Tests are a good way to promote Test cricket. That said always happy to see the Poms lose (even to Indians). The Indians will be playing on absolute greentops in the return series mid year so enjoy it while it lasts

    Facebook

    Maybe. Google has agreed to pay for news content to at least three separate news organisations in Australia (including Murdoch's News Corp). Facebook is digging in and the Australian government isn't for budging. The move appears to have widespread support across the political spectrum in Australia including from extreme left parties like the Greens who would close down News Corp in a heartbeat if they ever got their hands on the levers of power. Google and Facebook earn 80 cents of every $1 of digital advertising revenue in Australia so shelling out $100 million for access to news each year is peanuts on the $10 billion revenue they are grossing down here. You can expect others around the world to follow - it is on the radar in Canada and the EU and already in place in the UK

    Facebook

    Facebook has blocked access to news websites for its Australian users in response to legislation that aims to force it to bargain with publishers. The impact has been immediate and dramatic, affecting all news outlets in the country, as well as further afield. The blocked content includes articles produced by The Conversation Australia, but the impact is being felt by all Conversation sites, including The Conversation Africa. It means that you will not be able to share articles from The Conversation Africa on Facebook. This is because The Conversation was founded in Australia and all editions run off a common website. Ways are being sought to address the situation and we will keep you posted. In the meantime, we urge you to continue reading our work on our website and sharing through email or other social media. Any chance Rupert Murdoch is involved?

  17. I have most of her albums and saw her live in Sun City. I won tickets on the radio. The question. What is the oldest newspaper in the country. I had to wait 20 mins for the uninformed to get off the telephone lines but i knew the answer without google. Of course i would. Was from my home town and i grew up with it printed across the daily newspaper. Once all the Vaalies got off the line i could get through and won the tickets. The DJ immediately said...'you must be from...Pietermaritzburg'. ๐Ÿ˜‚ She does an incredible audiovisual show....
  18. Only us had more than 50% win ratio against all our opponents...at that time...wonder how much it changed.

    Ever since CSA refused to tour Australia in peak holiday season tours to SA are an afterthought for CA now. They were never going to come and it surprises me that CSA really thought they would - all the goal post moving should have been a red flag even for a shambolic organisation like CSA. I personally think they should be forced to tour or be fined a significant amount (something like $USD5 million - the ICC can deduct it from future distributions). The arguments that players like Steve Smith hasn't seen his wife in person since August 2020 (the ODI tour to England) until after the India test series has finished is flawed - the wife can join the bubble or Smith can opt out of things like the IPL - he certainly doesn't need the money. Unless the ICC stomps on the big three this shit will keep happening - of course they won't because the ICC is a plaything for the BCCI and CA and the ECB are their bosom buddies. The other nations need to get together and refuse to tour the big three and more importantly refuse to release their players for T20 leagues (of course the players will be pissed) - I think the big 3 will fold pretty quickly.

    We all know itโ€™s BS. England is suffering much more under Covid but none of these clowns would have turned down an Ashes tour.
