Australia, 561/6 in the draw. Hayden 150. I love noting that Hayden averages 103.5 against our counties and 22odd in the tests. Hopefully, it'll be under 20 by the end of the next test. :)

Nearly 35
Nearly 34
Approachng 31
Nearly 34
24 and a half (shouldn't be allowed I say:eek: )
Just over 30
Nearly 34 (goodbye Gilly :()
Almost 36 and still spinning us mad :Bad:
Nearly 29 and the symbol of masculinity :cool:
Just over 35 and a half
22 and a half (disgusting:bwadr: )

That is with bowler Warne, Brett, Mcgrath and Tait respectively, the most likely bowling attack for the Oval. :)

"Australia need to gamble to retain the Ashes and, considering the run-scoring feats of Shane Warne and Brett Lee in the series so far, the time is right to dump a batsman," Chappell wrote in his Sunday Telegraph column. "Anyway, the policy of playing five front-line bowlers is designed to decrease the scoring potential of the opposition, so there are less runs to chase."



So says Ian Chappell in cricinfo.

"But it's still strange. I look at Test cricket on TV and think, 'Yeah, I used to do that . . .' Now that I'm not taking all those painkillers to keep me playing the body relaxes and I often end up sounding like a normal supporter saying, 'C'mon boys, get stuck into them.'"

Having Hayden in there is good for England's morale. But maybe he really will get a big one in the last match, so drop him and put pressure on Katich as opener. Pietersen loves clobbering Shane Watson too, so that looks a good "all round" move.:kowt:

Simon Jones has been brutally crippled! We can only rely on the weath now. That makes Australia firm favourites considering his replacements are useless incompetants. :mad:

Heart versus Mind.

Heart wants England to win. Mind knows the Wizards of OZ can pull a koala bear out of a baggy green.

Check out these excerpts:

" LONDON: If England wins the fifth Test at the Oval, which begins on Thursday, the consequences will be so far reaching as to be breathtaking.
Especially when you consider that six years ago it was bottom of the world rankings and, as Nasser Hussain claimed

This is why we had an overdose of ODI's early on. So the final test would be scheduled in september where, with a bit of luck, we can take advantage of the rain. The tour organisers must have planned out all this including the results! :eek:

"This is gonna be Flintoffs Test"

He's had 3 already!?! How many does he want the selfish northerner? :D

If I win it is "Banana Head.":cheers:

I am an unabashed Flintoff fan. Any Englishman who can take off his shirt and twirl it around his head must be an Indian at heart.:D

I am also an unabashed Gilly fan.:D

May we have a great contest.

Flintoff the way he is now, is perfect. I hope he doesn't become a boof-head like Botham did.

I am talking about his personna. Great talent. :kowt:

"...working-class figures such as Flintoff and Simon Jones..."




ANDREW FLINTOFF and the England cricket team are widely regarded as much better role models than David Beckham and the England football side.



Roll over Beckam. Dig these sixes and yorkers.
