sometimes when the batsman is angry he slide-tackles the ball towards the cowering wicketkeeper

Anyone else watching Trinidad steamroller the rest of the Caribbean in the CPL recently?

Pravin Tambe just sprinted to take a diving catch like he was thirty years younger.

Semi-final win over Jamaica wrapped up with five overs to spare. Narine, Hosein and Bravo all with an economy rate of four or under. Eleven wins out of eleven.

Of course, they’ll lose the final now but TKR have been superb.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 8 September 2020 16:59 (one year ago) link

Rakheem Cornwall with a diving catch to finish off Guyana for 55 all out.

TKR vs Zouks is going to be great.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 8 September 2020 22:45 (one year ago) link

Cornwall went early but Fletcher and Deyal are murdering the TKR bowlers ;_;

74-1 off eight overs.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 10 September 2020 14:44 (one year ago) link

Zouks are the team I'm supporting (partly for Cornwall but also as I think they were the bunch that hired Jarrod Kimber as a selector) so not displeased by this

imago, Thursday, 10 September 2020 14:53 (one year ago) link

Zouks all out for 154, which could be worse for TKR, i guess. Given how they breezed through Guyana, i'd still fancy St Lucia.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 10 September 2020 15:48 (one year ago) link

What are these insane bowling choices for the Zouks mind you? Spin is not travelling at all so let's bowl loads of pace?

imago, Thursday, 10 September 2020 16:58 (one year ago) link

Bringing Williams back on was the sort of insanely stupid bowling change not even a child would consider

imago, Thursday, 10 September 2020 17:05 (one year ago) link

Until Zahir’s over I still thought the Zouks would do it. Kuggeleijn going for 16 in his last over was unexpected.

It was a terrific performance by TKR, after the first ten Zouks overs. Simmons and Bravo running through the Zouks’ dances as they hit six after six was rubbing it in a bit.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 10 September 2020 17:42 (one year ago) link

Jofra Archer has just hit four consecutive sixes off Ngidi in the IPL and there are still four balls in the over.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 15:49 (one year ago) link

Could have easily been a 40-run over. Which has happened to me before. I know.

Smith and Samson are chasing 224 in Sharjah so drivers on the Al Wasit Highway watch out.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Sunday, 27 September 2020 16:20 (one year ago) link

Pooran with possibly the best piece of fielding I’ve ever seen. Dived over the rope to catch the ball and threw it back underarm to save a six before he landed.

KKR needed 92 from 30 balls. They now need 42 off 16. Incredible match.

Yep, the bowling hasn’t been anywhere near good enough all tournament.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 4 November 2021 15:52 (seven months ago) link

This scenario makes WI beating Australia more likely than if they still had something theoretical to play for, imo

That's a phenomenal win.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 10 November 2021 17:34 (seven months ago) link

putting Jordan on to bowl the 16th instead of Ali or Rashid was the error imo

imago, Wednesday, 10 November 2021 17:43 (seven months ago) link

sadly the script is that Pakistan and NZ will fold miserably upon seeing yellow shirts, which would be even worse than India winning

imago, Thursday, 11 November 2021 12:48 (seven months ago) link

they really do both completely curl up and whimper when they play Australia though, it is psychological at this point

imago, Thursday, 11 November 2021 12:48 (seven months ago) link

I'm more annoyed at England losing because it increases the chance of an Australia win than for England's sake

imago, Thursday, 11 November 2021 12:49 (seven months ago) link

I’d slightly fancy Australia in todays game too, unfortunately. Let’s see who wins the toss. If it’s Pakistan and Shaheen comes out flying, who knows?

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Thursday, 11 November 2021 12:52 (seven months ago) link

If it's Australia, Pakistan will be bowled out for 80

No Conway for the final, which sucks for NZ - we already have enough psychological scars against Australia.

Shami’s on fire for Gujarat in the match between the two expansion teams. He’s taken KL Rahul, de Kock and Pandey in 15 balls. This season should be a lot of fun, the games over the weekend were great.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Monday, 28 March 2022 14:33 (three months ago) link

Yeah, I watched the Punjab run chase. Mad that someone won MOTM for their batting in a game where six others outscored them (and their own bowling got murdered), but those were tbf some clean hits

I don’t think anyone has dominated a season like this since Kohli in 2016. I can’t imagine Buttler won’t break the record of four centuries.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Friday, 22 April 2022 15:25 (two months ago) link

Absolute scenes. 36 needed off the last over, Powell hits three sixes in a row, the last of which was probably over waist height but not given as a no-ball, Delhi go bananas, look like they’re going to take the batsmen off, send a guy from the bench over to argue with the umpire, etc, they end up losing by 15.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Friday, 22 April 2022 18:06 (two months ago) link

if mccoy had conceded 36 to win off the last over then i'd have feared for his career tbh

imago, Friday, 22 April 2022 20:08 (two months ago) link

Umran Malik looks like a real talent. Probably the fastest Indian bowler in recent memory and laser-focused on the wicket today.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 27 April 2022 17:31 (two months ago) link

Not that it mattered when Marco Jansen got smacked for 25 in the final over…

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Wednesday, 27 April 2022 17:58 (two months ago) link
