King Kevin led the Stars to a mighty victory knotching up 67 winning runs off 43 balls in 18 overs.

KP has been doing lots of commentary on and off the park for this BB.

I never knew the he had serious ADHD, hes the most hyper talking and giggling bloke ive ever seen, he just cant stop talking, he freaking loves the sound of his own voice, and his silly little nervous giggle every 10 seconds is very grating and borish, no wonder he was kicked out of the national team, its very clear its all about Kevin, nobody in the team would have been able to get a word in, absolute dribbler or the highest order.

Great player but a very annoying and strange person.

In doing so many commentary stints, KP is doing a great favour to those of us who have long realised it's all about him. Hopefully it means that the penny might be dropping with the rest.

I am not saying silly franchise names completely devalue cricket but doesn't he play for the stars?

Try reading his book! It is a moan my seven year old would be proud of.

Family are out so I am on the sofa watching the big bash. If a team who shall remain nameless were fielding then this fielding would be accused of match fixing. Haddin just can't get out.

It is amazing how bad they have been in the blast isn't it? I just don't get it. They have Adil and bresnan plus maxwell and finch. How come they have stunk it out every single season (or did they make one finals day once?)

I would hardly class Bresnan as a big t20 player and certainly not through his international record in that form of the game , although he did get to play in the big bash last year. I know that Dennis Friedman from Dennis Does Cricket fame had a chuckle at that. Then again he had a smirk at Carberry who had a fine year with the Scorchers. Clearly though I would say that it is good that two nailed on picks for the world t20 are doing fine and getting preparation if I can be a little more serious.

The standards will be that much higher. Munro 14 ball 50 today.

I just put on big bash. When kallis stops playing any cricket he looks like he might go a bit Neil shipperley. He was never the smallest chap but he looks like he might expand quite rapidly.

Does anyone know why Eoin Morgan and Jason Roy are not playing in the Big Bash this year?

I don't think current ODI internationals are allowed in the big bash.

Two examples. Excellent work. The question is whether They get in our first choice side. I would but they might not be.

Sorry. I should have expanded. Despite Adil averaging 44 at an economy rate of 6 I do think he should play. He will win us games occasionally. Others will obviously disagree because his stats are so poor but he has something about him. Clearly he is second pick to a bowler who concedes 12 fewer runs an innings and takes wickets 8 runs cheaper but I do like having two spinners. Obviously mo has a better average and economy rate in t 20 internationals but it is slightly closer so he should play both limited over formats.

I can't get used to Willey as a Yorkshire player. Still haven't got used to Brooks either.

Basically I don't like transfers and wish everyone would stay with their original county and keep the talent spread around. But I am glad that Dominic Cork once played for Lancs.
