The rest of the month:

11-15 Dec: Pakistan-Sri Lanka
12-16 Dec: Australia-New Zealand
19-23 Dec: Pakistan-Sri Lanka II
25-30 Dec: Australia-New Zealand
26-30 Dec: South Africa-England

Pick of these for me is the first Aus-NZ test match. That test will tell you which way that one is going and it could be epic.

Aussie/NZ starts at 6pm NZ time. I'll be at my mate's place to play cards on the second day, and I'll be wearing an Aussie cricket shirt and cap and hoping like hell that my mates are forced to watch Warner score a ton. :lol:

It's strange times, there hasn't been a time in living memory where i've liked so many Australian cricketers.

Burns
Lasagne
Paine
Cummins
Starc
Hazelwood

Would all make a list of my favourite cricketers which is unprecedented. I'll still be rooting for NZ though.

I am going to take a lot of shit no matter what. If Australia is crushing them, if Australia is losing, if the match is finely poised. My friends pretty much can't stand any Australian cricketers. They even cheer for England over Australia, even AFTER England robbed the World Cup right out of their hands, ffs.

I get that - it's the same as Scotland-England in the soccer. Doesn't matter what happens in a wider sense it's one of the real pleasures in life to see England beaten, even by Germany, which is pretty mad.

I notice that you didn't contest that the World Cup was stolen. :lol:
