Discussion around the First Test at the Gabba
I am going to the first two days I think. I am expecting it to rain, but don''t really care. I am just looking forward to two days off work, and two days on the piss.Please let it not rain
It's been quite wet this year. It would suck massively if, for example, the start was delayed because of rain. Massive anti-climax.Is this the Aussies getting excuses in early with doom and gloom about the weather?
Thought that was our trick.
As for the test,can't wait.Will be fascinating to see if Australia have the bottle to make the changes the fans seem to want to the batting order.Not too fussed either way,either you have under the pump oldtimers struggling for form under pressure or new kids expected to produce the goods right away.Win win for England really.
Barring injuries we know the England team now,just hope Strauss isn't a useless tosser like Hussain was.
