4th Ashes Test - Boxing Day - Melbourne

Post by Alby on Sun Dec 22, 2013 2:17 pm

Nothing tops the cricket calender like the Boxing Day Test match and add the ashes to it ... Oh yeah !

Hey!!, Just heard the news... Swann has just pulled the pin... retired from all forms of the game. Not sure if it's Now! or from the end of the Ashes series. Pity, as he brings fun and feistyness to the contest.

I think we're going in with an unchanged squad.

Looks like bowling first has backfired on Clarke.
Aus 9-160 odd ... almost 90 runs behind...
It'll take some pretty good bowling and england bad batting to get back into this game.
Your boys bowled well today.

Unfortunately ....
It was too little guys...
4-0 !!!

I did not see this coming at all !!
You aren't playing well in all facets of the game and we're riding on a high.
Stokes seems to be the only shinning light.
They simply didn't recover from the pounding in the first test in Brisbane. ... Just my thoughts...
Any other reasons ?
