They're stealing our jobs.
Pumped for it Harry. Man I swear I've even got the last night nerves going on!!G'day Adders! Long time no chat mate. I bet you're looking forward to tomorrow night? I know I am!
Haha, just joking around of course.No need for alarm Spark. Harry and PieMan are both goodens and know their cricket, I told em to check this place out (never thought they'd arrive within 5 mins of each other though!!) Both are One Eyed Aussie Gits so if I can get on with them anyone can.
I'm on holidays and the wife and billy lids are away for the next weekPumped for it Harry. Man I swear I've even got the last night nerves going on!!
6 weeks of too much beer and not enough sleep..........my boss is gonna just love me.
More importantly, what's on everyone's menu?Allrighty....now that we all know each other, theres a test match starting tomorrow.
Big toss to win I reckon, certainly will be bat first. Can the Aussie top 4 stand up if they get first go??
I'm off work all this week so first test taken care of without having to worry about early starts, after that it will have to be a couple of Red Bulls for breakfast each morning and suck it up.I'm on holidays and the wife and billy lids are away for the next week
I'm very excited. I reckon the results will go the way of your blokes, but this'll be interesting from an Oz perspective to see if Patto, and Starc can step up and establish themselves as world class bowlers. Hughes has some demons to exorcise and Smith and Uzzie have a chance to cement a spot. I also reckon the next ten Tests will decide how Watto's career will be remembered.
More arrogant crap.It's pretty clear why. There aren't that many strong Cricket nations really. Australia have been for a very long time one of the strongest. It has played a huge part in Cricket's history. When it is lost it will be damming on Cricket.
Not to mention it will be the death knell for Test Cricket. The Ashes is one of the only things that keeps Test Cricket relevant nowadays. No Australia, no Ashes, no more Test Cricket.
Bat bat bat. Teams have struggled at TB in the 1st innings from time to time but the track just keeps on seaming. The 4th innings average there in recent years is something like 17Supposed to be cloudy and humid tomorrow morning, might be a bowling day. Might be a decent toss to lose.
He is right in that our top 4 need to score more runs but putting Ed at 3 with an average of 32 at 3 isnt how you do it.Calling Siddle and Patto to similar to play together was interesting. He's a fan of Bird though.Merv Hughes | Australia Can Shock England | All Out Cricket | Ashes
couple of interesting things in merv's team
TBH I reckon it's better for world cricket as a whole if Australia is strong.More arrogant crap.
