Posted:Whos been watching this gripping series between England and Australia?

I hated cricket for years but got into it properly a couple of summers ago and have loved the game ever since. This years ashes has been the most exciting competition I've watched so far and I was a bit suprised to not have seen any threads on it considering the large Aussie and English membership.

So, can England hold on for the win? Will Australia pull something out of the bag to get them back?

Your thoughts ladies and gents smile

Well done Miss Rouge, you have won the battle (but not the ashes (yet).

Where oh where was Monty Panesar? Warne made the difference, and Anderson ( who took the place that should have been Panesar's) scored 1 run and got one wicket. Seeing what a difference an attacking spinner made, its fair to say that that one selection difference probably lost us the test.

Bring on Perth and Panesar biggrin

Posted:woohoo go aussies!

the english selectors will be off their dials if they don't make some changes now.

almost hope the poms win in perth just to make the series a little exciting, for the Melb Boxing day test which is huge.

don't rate your (pom) chances of retaining them now though. tongue

Paneasar played in a game today- 2 wickets for 63 runs in 10 overs. He did dismiss 2 of the most dangerous batsmen, but he also got smashed about a bit.

He is still the most exciting and likely prospect that the English teams have for the next three tests though smile

Meanwhile, in the cricket....


Not a bad day biggrin

Paneasr finally turned up and got 5 wickets, and even Steve 'where's-the-wicket' harmison got into his considerable stride and took 4.

We lost two early wickets, but at 51-2 at the close of play, the Aussies aren't getting it all their way biggrin

That looks like great fun Miss Rouge- I can't imagine what the Japanese must think of Cricket- most of Britian don't really understand it smile

As for the cricket- I think its fair to say that England have been truly stuffed.

Well played Australia, looking forward to the rematch already biggrin
