I have a masochistic side: I support English cricket.

I even have tickets for one of the days of the Sydney test.

This is even worse than Pete Tong! It's bloody desparate.
Day 3,1 hour gone,Freddie and KP have buggered off for some early brunch. We'd have done better opening with Monty.
Embarrassed yet again. They in form,we not. Sensible money on innings and 360 run loss by sundown. Crap,crap,and crap again I say.

FIRST TEST, DAY THREE:
Australia 602-9 dec & 123-1 v England 157 all out

Skipper Ricky Ponting passed 9,000 runs in Tests as Australia extended their already massive lead in the first Ashes Test against England at Brisbane.

Ponting reached the milestone with a single off Steve Harmison after earlier opting not to enforce the follow-on.

England were bowled out for 157 in their first innings, a deficit of 445, as Glenn McGrath took 6-50.

Obviously getting in some batting practice. I also think going in to bat a second time instead of putting England back in also is a psychological one which may backfire. Nothing like taking the pxxx to get a team fired up. The odds of England getting a draw are almost nil but the game is not over till the last wicket has fallen.

Let's hope it backfires. Off to the Gabba in a bit.

Lightbulb Re: The Ashes

I share your enthusiasm, Mr Mover - but I remain cautious about the final outcome. After all, one game does not an Ashes series make.

The Poms could come back from one game down to win the series. They have done so before, and there's nothing to stop them doing it again.

I think Australia will win this game. But will we win the Ashes? It's too early to say.

That was a very enjoyable day, some good cricket. What a difference a day makes. I just cannot believe Ponting opted to bat again. IF, the outcome is a draw, Ponting is toast in Tuesday mornings press.

The huge beachball was amusing, the copper must have felt a tad under pressure before he burst it.

The blowup doll was even funnier.

We're gonna win this year, I can feel it in my bones They are all on form and have probably learnt a lot from last year. Plus there hopefully won't be as much rain this time



Rich, yes it has been a good days cricket, hope you and your boy had a good time

I still think the Aussies are the better team by a long way, but will admit to buying a Barmy Army cap, just in case, sole reason being to wind up the guys I work with if things go wrong!

PS Shane, if you're reading it, text me later
