Lehman is an astute appointment by the Aussies…or at least he would have been 3 months ago.
It seems to me that by the change they’ve made they are effectively surrendering this coming series and focussing on the rematch this winter.
Lovely to see Pietersen in such imperious form for Surrey. After textgate I was dead against him ever playing for England again but he’s won me round with his application. Looks like Compton has paid a heavy price for his run of form, it’s a gamble moving Root up to open. Hope it works.
Is there anything better than an ashes summer? I don’t think so.Posted 4 years ago
true Zokes, but the cricket may actually have more substance than the 2 contenders speeches so may be a welcome distraction.
Rudd reminds me of Blowers sometimes, after 30mins you realise all he is talking about is how a bus gets round a set of traffic lights rather than anything else!Posted 4 years ago
Still with the Anything but Abbot plan – I might move back if that happens
At least ‘moron and Gideon appear to have policies, even if I do vehemently disagree with them and the philosophy behind them. Abbot just seems to want to be a corrupt wrecker for the sake of it, and his only policy seems to have been “not what she said”.Posted 4 years ago
I’m hoping Jimmy really gets under
the orkWarner’s nose. Preferably metaphorically with words first, then quite literally with the ball. For a team that practically invented sledging, they don’t seem to like it up ’em.

Odd request of the day – Mods, any chance you could edit the title to include “Ashes Spoilers”? Or, could someone perhaps report this post and ask the same question? Wouldn’t want to upset people, now would we!
Now, on to the cricket…!
Sunny day, pitch is apparently drier than a temperance knees-up, so could be fruitful for Swann.Posted 4 years agouwe-r wrote:

Double or quits it’s Dave Warner 🙂

Grey and overcast. Teams to be named in 45 mins. They’ve had the covers on all week because they’re worried that in the dry weather the pitch will crack up. Either way – bat first and Swann bowls in the last* innings; or lose the toss and bowl first and Jimmy and co can get amongst them.
* covering myself, in case it’s only a 3 innings game 😉Posted 4 years ago
