What is Troy Cooley doing?

When England were given a comprehensive shoeing in 2006-07, everyone in England was up in arms that they’d let their bowling coach, Troy Cooley, leave for a post with Australia.

Now that Australia’s fast bowlers have turned into long hop machines set at 80mph, we’ve all forgotten about him, but he’s still there, he’s still working for Australia. Where’s the magic touch gone?

We wrote a bit more on this at The Wisden Cricketer. Not a lot more, but a bit.

  1. This feels slightly like a leading question, KC. All the same, what isn’t Troy Cooley doing?

  2. He’s not the messiah etc etc

  3. I am currently in a london branch of pizza express with three australians. It is glorious. I feel a match report coming on.

    Are they having trouble making their selection?

  5. KC, I believe they eventually settled on beer.

  6. So far I have established that beer is too inexperienced, ponting is past it, katich is flakey and they want to get shaun marsh in.

    Good work on punning our play on words back where it came from, Pavan. Admirable.

  8. I feel out of the loop.

    I’ll have the garlic mushrooms.

  9. do they do chips?

  10. Kronenborg x2. Pomodoro pizza. Large peroni x2. Champagne cocktail. School night. Sicky.

  11. Ps – an australian just bade me farewell by saying ‘congratulations on retaining the ashes’.

    We’re fucked.

  12. On an unrelated note, when was the last time the top 4 teams played test cricket on the same day ?

  13. Sam, is Pomodoro Pizza a left-arm spinner from Tasmania?

  14. large peroni is almost certainly a distant italian relative of david boon.
