    Geez I'm looking forward to this match - the atmosphere; the characters; the cricket; the mates; the $6 hotdogs; the two days off work; the sun spots.

    Just everythin'.

    The start of summer.

    Good times. Good times.

    All the cool people will be at the pubs.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Warne

    12th Man: Clarke

    agreed, Clarke wont be 12th man though as the selectors will want to give him every chance to play FC cricket this summer. They also dont usually pick batsmen as 12th men. Johnson or Tait will probably be the 12th man

    Think he could like Perth.

    As long as you don't do what Homer Simpson did when he had no beer and cable TV and went mad and wrote it all over the walls.

    Anyway if England win the tooss they should bat first.

    Bowling first against Australia usually does not work.
