The Ashes !! Here we go again....

Post by Alby on Thu Oct 31, 2013 11:21 pm

Maybe we'll have a better shot at the Ashes next time.
England seems to be too settled compared to us Aussies at present.
Dennis Lillee is spot on in saying the bowlers aren't putting in the net work and are paying for it out in the games.
Bailey has earned his spot and would make a good vice captain. The rest...geez I just don't know.
And why are half the squad playing pajama cricket in India. and getting well beaten.

It is good to have cricket here again though.


And yes.... I'm still playing ... Keeper/Opening Bat.... Bruised hands and all ha ha !! I love it !!

Well... A bit of a turnaround!!!
Our Bowlers did something right !!

Aus all out for 295 I think then England all out for 136 giving us a handy lead. 2nd innings started , I was thinking ... here we go... but to the boys credit. No wickets for 65 runs. That's a lead of 224.
I'm just happy they're putting more of a fight.

On to day 3...

Could be a lot better... Ha Ha !

There's another 15 years worth from my previous club as well .
Now it's about trying to bring the young kids into the game. We've bought up a lad for todays game who can tweak it a bit.... give him some senior experience. Doesn't matter if he gets wickets or not. We need spinners.
Weather is a bit crappy this morning... Hopefully dry out a bit before start time.
I'll be taking a radio with me and listen to the Test match.
