No, really, I didn't.
Actually, yea, I did.

Bring back jon Lewis i say.
Happy Birthday DRM, you beautiful human being.
Getting home to this score is pretty much heaven, tbh.

Agreed. Mahmood's gone up in my ratings since picking up Punter and Gilly (or was it Watson?) - but he's still woefully inadequate and has gone for the best part of 6 an over again..Originally Posted by open365
Still, don't know what up with Harmison, why cant England come to South Africa for some games? The Aussies must be licking their lips for this winter

Johnson bowling well is bonus. I think he is the 3rd best seam option for the Ashes. Gillespie shouldn't even come into consideration after his county stint and start to the Aus summer. It's down to MacGill and Johnson for the 4th bowling slot for mine.
You seemed suprised... Also what a ridiculous nickname, ****e is far more appropriate.Originally Posted by PY
Yes! Great win boys! Much improved performance with the ball with the youngens doing well for us. Punter captained well. The only let down in this game were those 3 quick wickets at the start, but Ponting and Gilchrist are quality batsmen when it most counts so nothing to worry about. Bring on India, goodbye England!
And a good psychological blow against Harmison before the Ashes.
Top knock from Martyn today. I don't really see a place for him in the ODI side any more, but obviously if he plays a few more innings like that he'll be undroppable again and may last through the World Cup. Certainly he'll still be there in the VB Series now.
Hussey was good too, as usual. I was pretty impressed with Saj Mahmood, who could be a very good bowler if he was a bit more accurate and had some more variations, which should come with experience. Anderson's still a good ODI bowler too.
It must be frustrating for an England fan, because with Trescothick, Collingwood, Pietersen, Flintoff and Anderson there's a solid foundation for a good ODI side. Bell and Mahmood have potential too. It's just that the other spots at the moment are filled with absolute crap, and inevitably once you get a couple of key batsmen out or see off a couple of good bowlers there's no support. Even if England had made 250+ today and taken early wickets, what is there after Mahmood and Anderson are bowled out?
It's cold on the outside they say
But the cold leaves you clear while the heat leaves a haze
Yeah, that nickname is really annoying these days, given that he's been totally crap for a year or so now in both forms of the game, and not far off it for a bit longer. You don't do much harm with leg-stump half-volleys when the game is in the balance.Originally Posted by TT Boy
Harmison is bowling pretty terrible at the moment and should be dropped for the Ashes unless he sorts himself out.
Feels really good to get one back on England. Reeeally good.
Great win by Australia. Wonderful stuff from Martyn and Hussey doing the job he set out to do very well. England made a bloody mess of that one, being 0/80 then all out for 169 is shocking and just when they got back in with 3 quick easy wickets, Harmison makes a mess of things.
Damien Martyn though, love the way he plays puts up an innings like this with his place in the side under pressure. Can't wait for India, will be the game of the tournament imo.
Rest In Peace Craigos
Wouldn’t go that far but he should be left out of the West Indies game for sure. Can't bowl with the new ball and seemingly he can't bowl with the older one too. Still got a big fan in Scaly though.Originally Posted by PhoenixFire
