indeed - Stuart Clark has been added to the squad - very much in the McGrath mould.

I'm going to look up that post where Scaly said he'd stop watching cricket if England lost in Edgbaston.

England have definitely overkilled the yorker. All they had do was bowl length at Kasper and the pressure would build. Wave goodbye to my interest if they contrive to lose this.
It's almost worth the rest of us rooting for Australia then.
I'm not interesting in seeing England getting hammered 5-0 or whatever. I've seen it happen plenty of times already and I didn't like it then and I wouldn't like it now.

So, Richard, have you read through it yet? :p
Now, there's an idea... something to do on long winter's nights...
Probably take about a day to do, mind.
A day?! You gun, itd take me a week.
Well with the place being so extraordinarily quiet the last few days and myself being so incredibly un-busy I decided to give it a go.
Just finished reading this entire thread and all I can say is, ****.
ha, nahh mate you couldn't have read this entire thread..
It's true. Spent a good couple of weeks on it. Fuller said I'd never finish it, glad to prove the **** wrong.
I'm glad to now become the third person to join this club. I've probably forgotten all but 30 or 40 posts mind.
:laugh: at Richard's post, which has since been deleted. I'm tempted to restore it now.
Meh, I'll just quote it.

James deleted it, for being stupid. It was originally just before pasag's post.
:laugh: I wrote that just so as I could laugh at the near-certainty of it being deleted!

Sorry if I irritated anyone. :)
Hey Jack, any chance you could do this now?

The next pressing question now is, how close will the Australia-India thread get to this?

Apologies for the bump here, but I've been watching replays of the 2005 series - some seriously good bowling in this series. I think perhaps my favourite wicket (perhaps if you exclude some of the wheeling cartwheel type dismissals which seemed relatively common in the series) is Matthew Hoggard's Lbw dismissal of Matthew Hayden in the 1st Australian innings at Trent Bridge. Absolutely immaculate piece of bowling that.
