    Was that the series when I had the misfortune to take you to the SCG for the last day when Chokedulkar got out in the 70s going for his 100th ton? I remember those sweet, sweet tears of yours when he got out.

    Yep that's it. You were surprisingly nice to me after that happened. You celebrated for half a second then pulled back #secretlyagoodbloke

    Well, it was his last knock at the SCG so he deserved a decent send off.

    And if I'd been on the fielding team that's exactly what I'd have given the little ****, but as I was in the crowd I gave him a standing O (as I think everyone did).

    Bang have over 90 tests and less than 10 test wins...so....

    On a more serious note, if you're playing an international match, test or otherwise, those wickets and runs should count anyway. Obviously they won't count AS MUCH when compared to a higher ranked opponent.

    You don't have to be winning matches to make yourselves 'record' worthy. You just have to play at a level that requires your opponents to bring their best game.

    Nah. Still not convinced tbh. But tbf I didn't watch this test match at all, because it was SL v Bangladesh and, well, you know. Good on them for having a win though. Did it well by the looks of things, certainly a lot better than anything Australia did in SL last year.

    Australia lost 2-3 to England
    Bangladesh drew 1-1 against England

    Australia lost 0-3 to Sri Lanka
    Bangladesh drew 1-1 against Sri Lanka

    Burgey you better hope Australia don't tour Bangladesh this year.

    I hope they do. I say that because a number of them deserve having to endure going there, after the way they've played recently.
