Great show Blighty.:cheers:

Oops! Sorry!



You should have been around during the 80's after the World Cricket Series split. Everyone was beating us then...LOL

Well, I suppose the ozzies need something to bounce back off. :chok:

If Pieterson carries on this form the test selectors will have a headache. Do you omit the man who averages 297 or the veteran playing his last series with a very strong record against Australia? Or does Pieterson have to remain sidelined? Glad I'm not in their place. :tralala:

I've been a cricket buff since the 60s.

Maybe Andrew Symonds shouldn't have been under the influence the night before...?:D

"If Harmison bowls as fast and rhythmically as he did yesterday," intoned CMJ, "England will win the Ashes." Now that is a big call.



If the Ashes are telecast live in this part of the world, there would be a lot of bleary-eyed people at work.

I look forward to a fascinating series.

May the better team win.:cheers:

You'll win the Ashes this time, methinks.:cool:

I will bet a hundred of the best on England, but I will hedge my bet with a fifty on Australia.

British lion versus Aussie kangaroo. Its a treat to watch.

What are the odds on Michael Clarke captaining Australia for the World Cup?:tralala:

If Pont doesn't get his act together Clarke might end up leading the Ashes squad. :kowt:

Aren't you chaps speaking a little soon? ;)

This current Australian team has won everything over the past decade. A form slump is a dangerous thing for the opposition, when its a side as good as the current Aussie team.

I have heard Willis, Botham, Imram Khan, all making disparaging comments on this team. They are all coming out of the woodwoork to stick the knife in.

Now,

where do you think the coach has got all those news clippings? Posted all over the Australian dressing rooms, I'll bet.

Not long ago this what the New Zealand captain said about the Australian bowlers: [i]

Well, you still have Comrade Mcgrath and at least 3 (or 4 with hussey) players averaging over 50 in tests, so no Australia is not a weak team yet, despite Kasps best efforts. Do you think England won yesterdays match in a parallel dimention somwhere? :cheers:

Do you think Australia just beat England in a parallel dimension in the following match?...LOL

The beauty of cricket lies in the fact that it can accommodate an Eddo Brandes, a Merv Hughes and a David Boon, men with far from svelte physiques and a fondness for the lager. Boon is now a national selector, and would no doubt have watched the Symonds story unfold with keen interest, given that he still holds the record for the most beer cans consumed on a flight to the UK from Sydney.


Sorry I left the link out:

Cheers. :cheers:

There's hope for us yet. ;)

"O Lord! Forgive Andrew Symonds!"

No! He bowls out Bangas. :(:chok::uh:

It is the mavericks like Botham and Symonds who make the game so special.

Now the big question is, will Hayden bat in a French 15th century suit of armour for the rest of the international games here?

Banga 250/8. That's what I call a decent score. It also demonstrates that Ozzie bowlers are relatively weak without Mcgrath. There are times when I think that Bangas score easier against the ozzies than we do. :wonder:

Separating the men from the boys:

The format of the ICC Champions Trophy, the second-biggest one-day tournament in world cricket, has been tweaked to ensure fewer one-sided contests. In the next edition of tournament, to be played in India in 2006, only eight teams will take part in the main competition.



Zimbabwe wont be there... :D
