They're not dead yet. They only need to score over 11 runs an over with a rabbit and a ferret to win. :D

I would like to know........has there EVER been a season in England when every day of every test match has been played. Maybe have to search Wisden for the answer to that question.:confused:

My guess would be yes. But I have no idea when. Still, We look quite strong currently.

101/1 :)

Hi Guys,
Now those who wager on the WIndies wager on what difference they will lose by.:D :D :D
England have a great chance against Zimbabwe as they are the favourites here in India. Only someone who is sozzled or has money to burn would bet on Zimbabwe.
Sachin's hospital stay was at Sinai in Baltimore, MD and they have asked him to take it easy for a while and not play against the lesser teams. With a one-day record like 314 matches 305 innings, 30 centuries, 12219 runs 186*highest score, 44.43 average, and a strike rate of 86.54, and a test record of 105 matches, 169 innings, 16 not outs, 8811 runs, 217 highest score, 57.58 average, and 31 centuries, all before the age of 30.
Time he took a rest. Every time he takes a holiday, he prefers to go to Australia. I wonder why he is so much in love with Australia.

BTW, a hundred rupees is worth two dollars and fifteen cents or one quid and thirty pence, depending on where you live. You can also buy three litres of petrol for a hundred rupees. I made quite a bit during the crazy last world cup by betting on Australia even before the first match got under way.

The latest from the grapevine is that Lara's head may roll to a side and Hooper's head would roll back, if the present surrender to the Ozzie invaders continues.:D

331/5 not bad. What's the old adage about winning the toss? Always bat first, but if you win the toss think about it then bat first anyway?

Maybe. Depends on the state of the wicket to an extent I suppose. Bad decision in this instance though.

Great debut from Macgrath (Yes, we've got one now!:P).

Butcher seems to thrive in Thorpe's absence. And yes, nice to have an English Macgrath.

Yep, Butcher performed very well I think. So did Anderson and Macgrath on debut. Perhaps if Harmison can improve a bit, we won't even need Caddick and Gough back! :)

Good work by the Poms!
I see Lara's jumped in at #3 this am. New strategy or steadying the boat?

West Indies win - after using 8 bowlers. Only Bernard and Hurley, with the exception of WK Jacobs, didnt bowl.:D

So the Ozzies are beatable.:D :D :D

Ozzies seem to be vulnerable to spin. Maybe Lara should open the bowling with his spin bowlers in the next match and have eight bowlers bowl six overs each or something.:D

Disagree that Oz is vulnerable to spin. They have some of the best spinners around and get lots of practice. Not like the days when Abdul Qadir would tie them up! What a brilliant bowler!

I've never thought of the Aussies as conductive to good spinners. Perhaps the up coming tou between India and Aus could offer evidence for this. Indian spinners are rather better than WIndy ones. :)

Definitely a bad day for NSW. Where was Bradman, overseas? Although Ponsford was there.:)
