3rd Ashes Test.. Perth - Western Aus.

Post by Alby on Fri Dec 13, 2013 9:28 am

Looking 38degC over in Perth today guys.

Damn ! that's hot. And it may be the same over the next few days.

That will dry out the pitch and you'll see a lot of cracks making it hard for the team batting last. Interesting to see whoever wins the toss, what they'll do.
We are 3 hours behind so it will be some evening viewing on the box.
time for the fireworks to start again !!

Aus won the toss and elected to bat first. An early wicket thanks to a poor call by Rogers... direct run out by Anderson. This could give England the confidence they need...

Apart from not getting any runs poor old Cook'y can't even win the toss. More terrible statistics England have never won an ashes test in Perth, England have never won an ashes test where they have batted second. I don't know where all these statistics are kept but this is not the time to start releasing them LOL.

I should have looked for a Dave type picture to put in here, I bet he finds one (About statistics, that is)

Injuries have just blown any chance as well mate. Broad's shot from that LBW on his foot from Johnson. Swann copped one on the finger and has possibly done a hammy. When things don't go your way...
It'll be hard from here on... not impossible but hard.
2 days to go and the Aussies have a 300+ run lead.

Bell & Stokes are digging in well. Even playing good aggresive shots... damnit !!

I saw an overhead shot of the pitch ... damn big and long cracks.
If these 2 keep going it's going to be very hard for the Aussies.

A comprehensive victory.
Thanks Dave.
I'll load a special photo shortly.
To get the ashes was totally unexpected at the start of the series.
Very happy for the boys.
On to Melbourne for the Boxing Day test.
