    They are just as bad as the real Aussies

    I especially love the ****ness of Haddin. Have it on good authority that the bye was a stinker. Could be the difference between margins of heavy defeat, that.

    I think people aren't giving enough credit to the ring in's batting talent. Plus the deck did flatten out. They better hope it doesn't break up on the 5th day

    Yeah, spin-heavy attack on Taunton. We set 'em 200 and they've got no hope.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Not a bad innings if I do say so myself. Disappointed not to get the double ton.

    Day Four


    Cassidy completed a disappointing match an hour into the day, edging Dong to slip for 23. Dong kept up his impressive spell, but was denied another wicket as Monk was dropped by Jansen. Lunch came on 88/2, with Super just beginning to open his shoulders on 39*.


    Monk continued to receive lives - Dharan dropped another chance to dismiss the no.4, this time off Thomas - but Super moved the scoreboard on, past 100 as he got his half century. As the third wicket stand pushed towards the 100 mark, Dong was brought back and struck, removing the dangerous Super for 77 with a sharp return catch. The scores were level at this point, and Spark would not form part of the lead as he soon hooked Dong down fine leg''s throat for the allrounder's third wicket.


    Remarkably, Monk was still there and was dropped a third time, this time by Jansen off the medium pace of Hakon Mork. Evidently the bowlers were going to have to do the work themselves, and when he was dismissed for 49 it was Dockrell's catch off his own bowling. Haddin joined Loblaw at the crease with the visitors just 32 ahead, and in need of a serious partnership.


    That was exactly what they got. Being cautious before tea, having made it to the break the pair began to wrest back the match with some impressive aggressive batsmanship. Loblaw got to fifty first, dispatching Phlegm for six to get there off 54 balls, before Haddin raised his half ton off a relatively pedestrian 68 balls.


    Once the hundred partnership came up, Loblaw became Dockrell's second caught & bowled victim. But it proved to be just enough to knock the home side out of sorts as Wayne was able to put up another fifty stand with Haddin. The keeper-batsman continued to bludgeon against the new ball, and reached stumps on 91*. He had been the architect of a 180-run session, a lead of 221, and Australia's ticket to safety.

    Day Five

    Haddin brought up his ton on the final morning, and as he progressed more steadily, Wayne began to shift through the gears. His fifty came from 76 balls and with Haddin he put on a further 91 runs for the day, before being out to Overton for 86. The young quick added a third wicket - Suifdadny for 12 - but when lunch came the 500 was up, and Australia were no longer looking to save the game. Haddin made it past 150 before he was run out attepting to force the pace, and the declaration came with a lead of 366 a few minutes after the break.



    Player had gone through 33 overs in the match without a wicket, but only needed three balls in the second innings to get one as he hit Beegee's off stump. Suifdadny responded with his own pole shortly after when Jansen nicked him behind, and the Australians began finally eyeing the win. However, Mork and Teja were able to halt the charge with their fifty stand for the third wicket, and reached tea with eight wicket still needed.

    After the tea break, the tourists began circling again. First Suifdadny broke through by getting Mork caught & bowled, and then Hildreth completed a match to forget as he spooned an easy return catch to Stephen for 1. Teja was next. Having gotten his second fifty in the match, the Indian fell in the same over as Hildreth, Stephen inducing an edge to Loblaw at slip. Suddenly the hosts were 100/5.

    Phlegm survived a close lbw shout off Stephen, but by now the leggie could smell blood. With an hour to go he trapped his man unarguably in front, and Phlegm departed for 3. Dong could only manage 1 before being caught bat-pad for Stephen's fourth, and the fifth came when Thomas lost his middle stump for 3. Stephen had an incredible 5-19.

    All pretence of scoring runs had gone for the home side - it was all about making these last two wickets remain intact for half an hour. Overton and Dharan diligently blocked for another 20 minutes. Haddin had been the culprit - a simple chance from Overton (Stephen was bowling, of course) had already gone down. But the legspinner had him this time, the tailender edging to Monk with only 10 minutes to go.

    Dockrell couldn't last a single ball against Wayne. It had been a quite stunning victory.



    Australia won by 235 runs

    Man of the Match: S Stephen
