The Aussies have survived boot camp and psychotic dog attacks. They only need to get through an all-week drinking session with Flint-off-licence and the Ashes will be theirs.

Lousy to lose but good to see a Windies resurgence. Oz has been dominating the game for too long.

Well, be glad that England still set the bench mark for ODI badness. Having said that, you're getting to close for comfort. :(

Warnie is up for a spinfest, we just need the Eng-Oz selectors to play ball. This year Mushtaq Ahmed showed that English players still have the ability to get out a lot against spin, so Warne has a good point. A spin machine will not have the hair or the howl of Warne, they need the real thing to 'practice' against.:cool:

Does anyone know a good online source for videos of Gilchrist innings? I can only find one video on youtube dedicated to an innings of his, 121 against New Zealand, with nothing really on google video.

No idea. I can find you one of the West Indies being dismissed for 25 in 1969 though.

Speaking of whom, England have Not Lost. Indeed they have somehow, slightly won a One Day International. :chok:

England wins. Gayle gets man of the match award and promptly says that Pietersen deserved it more than him.

I find that comment to be nothing more than racist Aussie bashing. Hair was carefully watched and monitored, and the complaints that he was officious, authoritarian, confrontational, and undiplomatic were all found to be natural traits with him!!!

He wasn't putting it on, or faking it. Like Muralitheran with his bowling, its natural for him. So like Muralitheran, he should be re-instated :angel:

Monty gets to bowl 3 overs, well done for giving him a chance (not!), while Mahmood goes for 97 from 9. Jones 13 not out, Giles out for 13, Mahmood 22 off 22 balls in 22 minutes, Strauss 67 from 67, Anderson 4 balls 4 minutes.

Verdict: should give up cricket and do synchronized swimming instead.

Methinks you are being overly harsh on the boys.

Give 'em time.:)
