Re: Gerald Peckover

Information about him seems to stop after 1983/84. Statistically, he played all his FC matches in the Currie Cup. Then he disappears till just before the 1983 WC & is part of the List A squad in 1983/84. He signs off with a century against Young West Indies after opening the batting. He was shunted ...

Re: Graeme Hick

Just referring back to the English system & Hick, I wonder how much consideration was given to financial guarantee. Looking at his performances for Queensland, I saw he played against Martin McCague of WA. At that time, McCague was trundling along, not doing to bad but was offered a county contract ...

Re: Graeme Hick

Zimdoggy, you are so right about the 98*. England wanted to get Australia batting & there were instructions for Hick to get to the ton quickly so England could declare.

Re: Corona

Not to sure about the effect of an Australian lockdown but the horse bolted before they shut the gate in Sydney. I’m dreading what effect those cruise ships docking with infected passengers will have.
I wonder if heads will roll.

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh | Mirpur, Dhaka | 2020

It's funny how the same attitude exists but in a slightly altered state. The Packer revolution heightened the interest in ODIs. All done in one day, coloured clothing (although other countries took a while to follow), day/night hour. This sparked a new audience different to the test/FC audience. 20/...
