    Icon1 Australian Ashes experiences wanted

    Hi, do any English or Aussie fans have any good memories of Ashes tests in Oz?
    Looking for help with a blog post on this subject and would like to hear from any budding writers/journos/diarists who could help.
    For example, the Boxing Day test at MCG, any memorable fightbacks, standout individual performances etc.
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Burgey saw Don Bradman bat in the 1932/33 Ashes series in Australia. He should have some interesting anecdotes.

    Also though he may have been young at the time, his memories of the Charles Bannerman debut 165 would be good to hear about

    He missed that one, waiting in the queue for his MMR jab at the time, as was I

    Thanks? I think. But no actual memories? Poor Burgey.

    Neil Pickup was out here for the 10/11 series, including Boxing Day iirc. If he sees this thread he might be able to assist.

    (Bannerman's knock was really good btw.)

    Awesome, thanks very much for the help Burgey - do you reckon he'd be open to answering a few questions about it? Am I best off contacting him direct?
    Cheers again.
