Mr Lewis should shutup and think about what he is going to say when they get home, who will swing the axe when his head is on the chopping block, Even on our worse day the Aussies couldn't be beat, i even doubt that England or NZ could beat us even if we didn't turn up, they'd still find a way to drop there lollies
I thought that England would have the wood on NZ, but only narrowly winning there first encounter and being soundly beaten last night and getting a bonus point against them, i think there a spent force

Would've hate to be in Flintoffs shoes at the post match media talk, How can one keep defending a team of no hopers, there biggest sin they did was not bat for there 50 overs and there suppost to be the cream of the crop in English 1 day cricket . I doubt if they could beat themselves even if they had big sticks

Hands up who enjoyed watching that last match i thought it was boring as bat s**t. Im all for australia winning but i turn it on to watch a competition.

One of the comentators made a comment along the lines of. Games like this do not help the australian selectors, They cant get a fair judge of bowling talent when they are bowling to an english batsman.

The english have looked scratchy all summer but kevin pieterson seemed to be able to hold the middle order together.

A new paint on the market in England




The Melbourne Cricket Club has announced it will build a new stand at the M.C.G. to honour retired leg spinner, Shane Warne.

It is to be known as the 'One Night Stand'.

That paint must have a ten year garantee
Will the new stand have a SMOKE AND SMS section?
Nice photo Rob

There's a good reason that it's called the WACA("whacka")
There's been plenty of whacking going on there of late
The English team is at least showing signs of improvement
That was their biggest total so far in the tri series

The regular aussie fast bowlers are really copping a tonking atm... although tait looked good yesterday.

I think it did hodge a world of good to bat with ponting. A carming influence till he could see what the kiwis where bowling. Starting an innings with 18 singles of 30 something balls and finishing with 99 of 87 is pretty impressive.

Shame about symonds, and now they are saying he will may miss the world cup.

Steve.

It would be nice if you Aussies could come up with some unbiast commentators. It would make viewing the Black Caps TONK the Aussies in the finals alot more enjoyable.

sorry... baaaaaaah baaaah better ... now serious I you should expect bias towards the home country in any sporting event not just cricket, I dont know who the commentators for the chappell hadlee series are but i expect it will be bias the other way.

Im actually glad to see both england and nz pushing australia. watching one sided sporting events is not fun no matter who is playing.

Im expecting the nz vs eng game to be one of the best of the series... both teams have been showing form, although i guess it depends on the pitch in brisbane.
