Do you know that the BBC's cricket area have got a hideous count down thing until the first Ashes test!!! It's making me a nervous wreck and there still 159 days to go. :eek:

The three days that Warne spent in Sri Lanka not only restored his personal image, but made him a champion amongst the Sri Lankan people. He will be seen and treated in a different light in the future. Murali also received a warm welcome from Australian spectators when he played for the World XI in the charity match at Melbourne recently. It took a tragedy of huge proportions to change people's attitudes.

I don't think the pitch will be very good to bat on though. And if the snow is soft, the slow outfield could make scoring tricky. :confused:

No-one was quite sure how seriously to take it. Although it was a lark, it was also a match between proud cricketing countries. Some blokes were making their debuts. No-one had much idea how to play the game either, least of all the bemused Australians.
Wizards of Oz win again.

Here's hoping for an innings defeat. Why do I get the strange feeling that the impending Tests between Zim and SA will not be quite as interesting as those between them and us?
