Ashes to ashes
Funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junky....

Right, let me get out of here before I annoy the people who really want to talk about cricket.

Googlies, now who was that bowler who used to throw them?

Indian or Pakistani, he was, anybody?

Default Re: The Ashes

Ah, my pessimism precedes me. I'd love it to happen, they still need another 379 runs to make us bat again, I can't see Vaughan putting them in again, the pitch is beginning to cut up quite badly and I think he'll want some more runs on the board.

Anyway, I'll be down at Goodfellas her in DXB to watch come 1.30 our time!

why would Vaughan want to bat then, if the pitch is cutting up Warne will have a field day?

I'd rather he had a "field" day (pun intended) today/tomorrow than us messing it up and having to chase 150 or so for the win on Monday on a near unplayable pitch!!

Is the word humiliate in the Australian dictionary. Afollow on is almost as good as a win in my book.
