Talk to me about cricket.

This is still my favorite moment of all time:


I can still remember watching it at the time. Bevan is probably my favorite player too.

I'm just looking forward to 10,000 ashes tests this year.

:haha: That's great.

Yeah the ashes will be great. Pretty weird having two in one year though. Winning the first one seems kinda pointless because whoever wins the second one gets the Ashes a few months later.

I was at the SCG for that game. Amazing atmosphere. And isn't it odd that Mitchell Johnson usually has so much to say except when Mickey Arthurs asks for his opinion.

Bring on 3pm and bring on some passion.

:haha: Good call.

I am a fan of Johnson though, I know a lot of people don't like him especially on international games but it would have been cool to see him have a chance in India.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to 3pm too. I've been streaming them online. I really hope this game has at least 4 innings.

Best days play so far this tour (from an Aussie pov).

Yeah Johnson on his day is unplayable. Our problem is that we only have one player who would get into the eng or sa team. Still enjoyable though.

Truly a battle of attrition. Our boys did well on the first day vs. England, but we always manage to fuck things up one way or another.

That was a great, great year for Australian cricket. We wiped the floor with England and Sri Lanka, and we won the world cup.

Cunning approach spending 2.5 matches boring us to sleep and then move in for the kill

At this point it appears to be an entirely random occurrence when anyone performs above a club-grade level.
