2005 was good - the catch off the glove with 2 runs to go...?

But nothing compares to that last match. Records tumbling and a new star, controversial decisions, walking -not walking. DRS sysem under review AGAIN.

Great batting, great bowling. Nail bitingly close result

I am wrecked.

Actually, the controversy, such as it is, has been rather amusing over here. The wonderful irony of Australian media pundits having a go at Broad for not walking is priceless... Healey, Ponting etc, etc etc....

It was a good match and ultimately well played by both sides.

Oh, that makes me smile, more than it should. There is a wonderful sweetness to it.


Personally, I'm for walking, but I think that ship sailed a long time ago. And the people complaining now were at the helm.  Smiley

Walking?

Listen to Alex Stewart. He has been berated by team captains for doing it and not doing doing it in the same year.

There is a delicious irony that of all nations to whinge it is the Aussies - the home of "you don't go till the until the umpire raises his finger".

Anyway we won - and that was the proper result but the World now knows the name of Ashton Agar. A potential star in the making.

What a match! What a phenomenal match!

Ian Healey, a fine player, equally competitive but almost certainly a more affable and probably fair minded man than , say Ponting, was once quoted as saying "you only walk when your car runs out of fuel". Whilst I agree with Plynkes that it is the sporting option, he's also right, in saying that  the boat sailed a long time ago.

Bad sportsmanship, but the Aussies are certainly not the ones to be complaining.

Play by the rule and the spirit of the game.....never should have allowed the 'players' to take over, Cricket is a game for gentlemen.

Agreed on Sunday afternoon even at local league level (nicking the ball is ALWAYS FELT), but in a world of hotspot and even that goes wrong or is not "reset" I'm not so sure. At the end of the day it balances out, I mean their boy wonder was stumped on 6!

Aussies presently 91 for 6 on a flat track under a scorching sun.

Clearly putting on a baggy green cap DOES not make you a cricketer. I think playing cricket does.

Yesterday the heartache of supporting a team that's more up and down than a rollercoaster came to it's peak after the first leg of the Europa League qualifiers. Outplayed the first Half, and after a 2-0 for Sparta Prague, I came to the conclusion that "hey, it's a season of rubbish". But all the sudden, out of nowhere, we scored 2 goals.

Beautiful goals as well!

All I can suggest boys is that you log onto 'The Age' and read the readers comments on Australia's test fortunes. Brings a tear to the eye, so it does.  Cheesy

The Ship of Fools is missing some passengers.

I am happy to go on record as having consigned these buffoons and their ghastly captain to the flames well before they began their English Via Dolorosa.

Congratulations once again to England who have, at least, learned how to play as a team and not as a rabble of ill-disciplined oiks.

But that's just me.
