After a test match like the one just completed, I must admit I'm struggling to get enthused over this bash and crash stuff gtr.

Test Cricket will always be the ultimate test of a players skill.But Big Bash will sign the cheques and brink the next generation of boys+girls.And bring in new fans to the game.

Maybe we could have a WAFL Big Bash or similar to sign the cheques and bring in new fans. 10 a team, smaller grounds, 15 minute quarters...wait a minute...that sounds like that AFLX rubbish !!! hmmm...maybe not.

We could have a Wafl lighting carnival like the early 1980's.Two 10 minute halves each team plays 9 games over two or three days long weekend.Played at Optus $5 entry under 16's free.Day\ Night format.

The last two tests have regenerated my interest in the long form of cricket, but I still love the big bash. I won’t miss any test match played in Oz and I won’t miss a Scorchers game either. Like it or not, BB could be to cricket what the AFL is to the WAFL.

How good are the Afgan boys at this T20.Man of the match Rashid Khan 3-19..
And an amazing story.Brisbane Strikers player Mujeed Ur Raheem.With 9 wickets down and 6 overs to go he carried his bat and got the score from 80 to 140.
18 months ago he had never had a Cricket ball in his hands.Learnt how to bowl from watching youtube.Living in a remote Afganistan village.Right hand offspinner 0-26 with 2 drop catches off his bowling.

Remember it well GTR back in 1982 (Red Rooster Cup) & 1983 (Emu Export Cup). Not sure why the WAFL didn’t go on with it but for once were actually ahead of their time instead of being a decade or 2 behind!

I'm pretty sure that was when the Wafl tested the 25+50 metre lines.The 25m line only last 1 season I think 1983.
