Wow, I hadn't heard that. Very sad. I really liked the guy. He seemed like a genuine person.

I watched him play so many times, including live at the SCG. RIP.

I'm really fucking angry at the gutless cricket administration we have in this country, the way they crumbled to the BCCI during monkey gate was something Roy never recovered from. I feel so sorry for him, such a genuine human betrayed by people meant to have his back all because of money.

Absolutely pathetic.

The schedules out for the upcoming cricket season and she’s a busy one. The Windies and Saffas are coming this summer with the latter having the Boxing Day and New Years spots, it’s been a while since the Saffas have been here for Christmas and I’m looking forward to it, it’s always a competitive hard fought series against that lot. We also have a 20/20 WC to defend on home soil.

The mens international season is ending a bit early due to the fact the Aussies have a long tour of India coming up starting early Februar.

McCullum has really turned the poms around. Playing some brilliant cricket at the moment.
Always loved this bloke, great to watch as a cricketer and great to listen to when commentating, really insightful and down to earth. Not at all surprised he's a good coach.
