"The public are just interested in the Ashes and everything else doesn't matter too much," Collingwood said.

I like Collingwood, but if that is what he said, it's a bit poor.

Do you have the source and full text from this supposed quote ? Could be taken out of context as half a line of writing.

Although to be fair to him isn't he actually right, I'd much rather England win the ashes than a 20/20 or ODI series and would rather spend my dwindling funds on seeing that which is exactly what I did.

Only a hardcore cricket fan or statistician would remember the result of the ODI part of any tour from say 2 years ago. It means nothing.

ODI's have their place, a good day out can be had with a decent standard of cricket.

As it says in your bible, god rested on the 7th day of creating the world. 1-5 was a test and an ODI on the Saturday, Rest on the Sunday.

The Prophet as Spoken

Thanks for that.

I think he is proved right by tonights game not being a sell-out.

"To us, as players, this is an important stepping stone, we want to keep improving our one-day cricket."


Slightly different when you include the second part of his sentence... and the man does have a point, no?

I don't think he does have a point mate.

You aren't interested in the one dayers. I'm not interested in the one dayers. And neither are a lot of others.

But the 40,000 who bought tickets for the T20 matches and the thousands who have bought tickets for the ODI series clearly are interested.
