We should sort out the batting...

Re: Cricket

Nice summary. I find the reaction of Aus public to be very interesting, the Baggy Green really is revered, in a way no UK sports team ever has in my lifetime.

Re: Cricket

So.... Lehmann innocent (really?), Warner is the bogeyman, Smith & "isn't-he-young" Bancroft join Warner on the plane back to Oz.

Yep, felt like 1992 WC all over again.
