To win a test match you need to take 20 wickets.
He won't contribute much at all.
So who's in for the long haul then???
whats Giles gonna bring to the team? dollys?
duncan fletcher, what have you done? :(
he's only england's best spinner for 20 years+. Arseholes.
My eyelids are heavy already...not a good sign.
I heart that man.
won the toss and are batting.
i used some cream to get rid.
I just wish we'd won the toss.
Come on Harmison!
for a bunch of dicks?
A gaggle of a bunch of dicks
wicket in his first 5 overs.
panesar is a better bowler than any of anderson, plunkett or mahmood. so why do they play ahead of him? i understand the logic of picking giles.
Harmison is off after two overs. Anderson's first ball goes for four. It's not looking good so far.
We need you being positive!
Come on England?
an easy start - big sighs - and I thought it was hard supporting Leeds! (it is).
why don't we bowl better?
1130: WICKET Australia 79-1 (Hayden 21)
Flintoff makes the breakthrough, Hayden edging him to Collingwood at second slip. Flintoff goes ruddy beserk - at least he's up for it. Skipper Ponting strides to the middle. He looks more and more like George W Bush this boy.
Flintoff being heroic aside, that was a bit crap. Harmison is not just inaccurate but worse than that he's bowling consistently far too short to both Ponting and Langer. Hoggard and Anderson look eminently unthreatening because the ball's not swinging, and that one over from Giles didn't exactly fill me with confidence. I cannot imagine what Fletcher was thinking, I really can't.
...England strike. I sat through the whole of the first session and the only highlight comes when the Sky Sports Hamster in Nottingham has stopped running around its wheel. Shit.
...it seems we were all a little more optimistic than we thought!
I HATE cricket
minding this at all.
Matt Hayden's cooking skills again failed to help him though.
...did anyone see the Shane Warne Advance Hair Studios advert between a few overs?
'I think this ones for you Warney'
what?! worst/best advert ever!
