3 years ago getting 7 Australian back in the hutch for under 300 was worthy of a K. Now it's just perfectly normal because Australia are so crap. :D

O the moles they do hide
(the moles they do hide)
When Brett Lee bowls a wide
(Brett Lee bowls a wide)
Like a meteor it crashes down
(a meteor it crashes down)
Instead of clobb'ring the batsman's crown
(clobb'ring the batsman's crown!)

For all we know he may have shaved it off and restarted it. :)

There's Ian Bells. The original dodgy used car salesman. :D

Low-flying pigeons also watch out when Lee is batting, lest they get sent into orbit :eek:

Just the one in the 1st Innings.;) Some shockingly pointless bouncers from the Windies got called for wides.

Another low-scoring warm-up game for England. It'll be interesting if it's the same in the Tests, could lead to some very close games, much better than bore-draws certainly.

The Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer has called for the rules on moving fielders while the ball is being bowled to be clarified before Pakistan and England begin their three-Test series on Saturday.

http://sport.guardia...1636036,00.html

I remember during the Oz v Eng Twenty20 Trescothick made a signal to Lewis before he started his run. While Lewis was running in Tres walked sideways from slip to a wider position and Martyn guided the ball straight into his hands. I wondered how legal that was (only really noticed it on the replays). I know it's ok to walk in towards the pitch while the bowler is running up. Last spring Dwayne Bravo sometimes did a similar thing to Vaughan while a spinner was bowling, diving across while the ball was bowled, maybe against South Africa or Pakistan.

He will be exterminated. Our batsmen won't be scared by cobblers like that. Anyway, their quicks will skittle us before he has a chance to bowl so it's pretty irrelevent. :bawling:

How is having a don of fine cuisine in the covers going to help England's chances? Will he sneak a garlic and breathmint solution into the drinks?


"Anyway, their quicks will skittle us"

In the last few days some England batters have developed a novel defensive technique in the nets - dive forward and headbutt the ball to prevent being bowled. Geraint is becoming an adept.

Now then: Hoggard's cut his hair, Afridi is out, the moustaches are still in and the pitch is as dead as a fried turnip. Makes me wonder why I bothered to wake up early.

6-1 win over the 2nd ranked ODI team in the world. We get a chance to bash the Springboks next.

We are having torrential rains and freaky climate down in South India and parts of Chennai (Madras to you Poms) are still under knee deep water.

My comp has crashed and I am now posting from one of our internet cafes.

Give the Pakis hell. Harmison seems to have got that breakthrough.

Guess what the Indian team won for beating SL? Rs 5 million.:devil:

The Pak suppporters are friendly and loud, and seem to support England most of the time, which is nice. Sign held aloft: "We are miss you Afridi" - indeed, don't the selectors want him to blossom into a good Test player?:crazy: Pietersen and Flintoff will be looking forward to some crazy time tomorrow.


"Rs 5 million"
:D

Some of it should be donated to a retirement fund for Ganguly so he can spend 5 years writing a racy 1400-page account of his side of the Chappell affair that ended in divorce.;)

Think we've got this one in the bag, even though we haven't yet bribed Dhoni to defect to us. Maybe Tresco can get another triple century. :Bad:
