It does an Australian heart good, that does.

m0nty

I would rather watch the replay of the Poms getting skittled on Fox Sports 3 than the Chadlee.

m0nty

Nice sledge by Both on the England replay. Athers is rabbiting on about delivery strides and how McGrath's back foot used to land in front of the stumps to retain his height, and Both pipes up with "You styaed out there long enough to notice, did you?"

m0nty

Fair nut by Jerome Taylor to knock out KP's off peg.

m0nty

Love that sign in the crowd!

YES W.I. CAN

Tony Tea

Saw YES W.I. CAN on another blog, too. Nice bit of work.

Moses @ Beerandsport

Wow, official CA memorabilia - 5 action shots of Ponting for under $200.

Moses @ Beerandsport

Clarke over-celebrating his 50, then edges one straight through McCullum whose shoulder is looking very ordinary. We're on track for 350 here, especially if Haddin stays in...

Moses @ Beerandsport

Haddin just hit in the balls but Nicholas and Healey were flogging some shithouse reality tv show so didn't replay it.

Tony Tea

This season is a new high-low in flogging shit shows.

Tony Tea

For a bloke who is reputedly the best puller in the game, this season Ponting has gotten out to a shed load of sloppy pulls.

Soups

Question with no chance of an answer. Why in WA is this game not live? Every Friday game hasn't been live since Adam first padded up but Sundays and public holidays have always been live. Maybe Nine didn't want me to see the premiere of Triple Zero Heroes on 7...

m0nty

Nice little opening batsman, that Adam. Always dug in for a long innings, although susceptible to being run out by his partner.

Tony Tea

Does Adam keep the records on how many times a Strayan has got out first over of a power play?

m0nty

Sounds more like a job for John the Baptist.

Bruce

Well whaddaya know. Some runs.

Turnip

Good old channel 9 showing the match on delay in QLD.

Russ

Apart from the daft shot making, we lose wickets too, because in a weird kind of way the powerplay is actually attacking, in that it forces the field in.

But what is going on tonight? Two slips to Johnson!! Ponting is more attacking right now than he often is in the tests. Almost a runout as a consequence of the pressure NZ are losing the plot.

And naturally enough, Clarke comes back so we can get through the 5th bowler. Negative barely begins to describe it.

Tony Tea

Sounds like Nine have given the series away if they are showing it on delay in Qld and WA.

Which means Nine are therefore in synch with CricAussie, the selectors and the players who have all been treating the Jan/Feb one-dayers as practice matches since about 1997.

Which probably doesn't make Which Bank very happy.

Tony Tea

By the way.

Has Morgan been on the angry pills? He was all over the Aussies for running on the wicket.

Top that with a howler - henceforth known as a "morgan" - when he fired Ferguson and he's had a pretty standard match at the SCG.

Tony Tea

Elliot and McCullum in, 19 off the over, 100 needed in 12 overs, get your smart money on the Kiwis.

Tony Tea

And the Tauf just gave an absolutely plumb McCullum not out LB.

Tony Tea

A dropped catch can only be moments away.

Tony Tea

What's Bracken doing with all these gimme full tosses? Is it too much to ask that we copy the Varks and the Kiwis when it comes to drilling in yorkers?

m0nty

Hilfenhaus is bowling shizenhaus AGAIN.

Tony Tea

Hilf bowled less shizen than Bracken. Apart from that four off the last ball of the over. Fvck, I hate that.

Guess Who?

"Ooooh, that's well hit! No it's not, it's going to be out. Yes."

Hint: It's not Burton Cummings.

m0nty

Onya Rope-a-dope Hopes, fire them out with your slow pies pitched a foot outside leg stump.

Tony Tea

Bill's on drugs. Haddin is not "certainly man of the match".

Forget who wins: Elliot is today's top banana.

Tony Tea

Holy pies!

McCullum just holed out off a rank fully.

Shizenhaus is a genius.

Tony Tea

No point throwing the ball to Shizenhaus at the non-striker's end. He doesn't know where the stumps are.

m0nty

A fine 24 hours in cricket.

Tony Tea

Whaddaya know? Bracken got a wicket

We win.

Yay us!

Bracken was quite happy for a bloke who got 1/65 of 8. Them's almost Mickey Lewis figures.
