Decent team of “Late bloomers” here. Will recruiters find the 2020 versions? Also what list cuts would mean for the likes of Gary Ayres and why it is such a shame the Under-16 carnival has been scrapped

The 2016 draft podium just about as even as it gets. Who would you take?

No Howe, no Sidebottom, no De Goey ... no worries. Why that was such a satisfying win for Bucks#AFLPiesHawks 

So Tom Lynch is playing, just six days after hand surgery. You wonder whether this match-up was shown to Sydney’s young defenders this week. #AFLTigersSwans

Ben Long sent straight to the tribunal, where his record will be raised by the AFL. Long’s been suspended in the NTFL, VFL, TAC Cup and school footy. Copped four matches (and missed a grand final) for a hip-and-shoulder that broke his opponent’s collarbone in 2016.

ICC rules state that the World Cup trophy is shared if the final is washed out. So it seems strange that England and New Zealand would be declared joint winners after rain, but not after they literally cannot be split. Two ties and it goes to a boundary countback. Hmmm. #CWC19 

Pat Cummins will make just under $10,000 per delivery in the IPL next year. No Big Bash contract this summer, but Cummins’ $3.1 million price will see him take home almost as much as two entire BBL franchises (36 players). #BBL09  #IPLauction

Melbourne. Where you can paywave a $75 fine to an undercover inspector onboard, but can't purchase a Myki or top up. Plenty stung on No.8.

Steve Smith is up, and looks OK — thank heavens — but he won’t bat on. Walking off with the doctor. It doesn’t get much scarier than that. A standing ovation from the entire Lord’s crowd. Brutal battle. #Ashes 

STEVE SMITH‘S five practice games since returning for Australia 22 (43) v ?? 89* (77) v ?? 91* (108) v ?? 76 (82) v ? 116 (102) v ??????? Runs 394 Average 131.3 Strike-rate 96.1 A special player. Fair way to silence chants of “cheat” and boos from the Shane Warne stand. #CWC19 

It is 11.10pm, the MCG lights are off and Sandeep Lamichhane is STILL signing autographs. And loving it. Yep, 50 minutes after the last ball, and hours after his last ball. Brilliant ? . #BBL08

James Hird said this week it's nearly impossible to select 7 or more players with less than 50 games and win. The Dogs are 8-5 fielding 11.
