I want my vote to be changed to England.
"I am very happy and it will allow me to have lot more rice."
Eoin Morgan on being given a rice cooker for being Man of the Match in a Dhaka Premier Division game.
I'm going to keep calling it Australianism even when other teams do it though, just to piss Manan off.
Haha I reckon rather than piss him off, he gets back at everyone else by calling it Australianism when they win tests that are fixed
Remember Pasag's reaction to his post
In all honesty what Cricket Australia thought would be a nice confidence booster leading into the series is turning into a disaster and just piling on the pressure on the selectors and players.
A few weeks back there was a lot of talk on here about how it will all be fine once Siddle returns but he got smashed today.What next,pinning all hope on Bollinger and Harris who will surely be undercooked if picked for Brisbane.
Makes a refreshing change for you guys to be in the mess instead of us as we have had so many shambolic tours with injuries and selection issues in the last 20 years i have lost count.
Siddle got smashed around today in an ODI ( A format he isn't even that good at in the first place ), so by your logic, Siddle is going to fail in the Ashes? I saw Siddle's return first class game and he looked very impressive.
Not really followed Siddle much in ODI's but he could just be an Aussie version of Hoggard,great with a red ball and awful with a white one.Just seemed strange seeing him bowl such utter tripe today when he was supposedly firing on all cylinders.
It would be really interesting if we can re-run this vote just before the series starts, and see if things have changed.
England should win and win well. All settled, confident, this is the big chance to do it. The convicts won't be this weak in four years' time.
Since the last Ashes:
Strauss - 511 runs @ 31.93, 4 50s
Cook - 855 runs @ 42.75, 4 100s, 2 50s
Trott - 995 @ 52.36, 2 100s, 4 50s
Pietersen - 659 @ 36.91, 5 50s
Collingwood - 611 @ 40.73, 1 100, 4 50s
Bell - 719 @ 65.36, 3 100s, 2 50s
Prior - 570 @ 38.00, 1 100, 5 50s
Katich - 1101 @ 55.05, 2 100s, 8 50s
Watson - 1021 @ 51.05, 2 100s, 7 50s
Ponting - 905 @ 43.09, 1 100, 7 50s
Clarke - 897 @ 47.21, 2 100s, 4 50s
Hussey - 763 @ 40.15, 1 100, 5 50s
North - 595 @ 31.31, 2 100s, 3 50s
Haddin - 366 @ 36.60, 2 50s
For every weakness in Australia's lineup, there's an equivelant in England's.
England will eat **** once more. I can't see anyone other than Swann in their bowling attack who will trouble the Aussies.
CW heavily in favour of Australia it seems. 36-20
36-29 to be more accurate. Draw = England win for all intents and purposes.
