Right, games starts in about 20 mins...
i'm going out on a limb and saying Australia.
obviously Australia, but by how much?
and elected to field.
Australia: Ricky Ponting (captain), Adam Gilchrist, Matthew Hayden, Michael Clarke, Brad Hodge, Michael Hussey, Shane Watson, Brad Hogg, Nathan Bracken, Shaun Tait, Glenn McGrath Scotland: Craig Wright (captain), Ryan Watson, Fraser Watts, Majid Haq, Navdeep Poonia, Dougie Brown, Colin Smith, Glenn Rogers, John Blain, Gavin Hamilton, Paul Hoffmann
he is in my team as well.
to win now for leaving Clark out. Although not before allowing Hussey and Gilchrist to smack unbeaten tons.
to chase down more than 200 against Australia? hmmm
without Clark in the Aussie attack there's plenty of runs to be had.
that's crap. He would have destroyed Scotland and got me loads of points, too.
for BBC is called Ben Dirs.
Scotland sending in Australia
looking for a long day I guess
i thought the only way Scotland might have even the smallest chance would be to bat first and post a competitive total. I guess there is some early movement they're hoping to exploit.
they are saying it is an ideal batting track
one of the biggest thrashings ever
Let Ponting have a bat
in my team though, so get out Gilchrist you ugly cunt
who can get a century the quickest? Hayden or Gilchrist?
Also, I just checked out the BBC's text commentary and its really shit and unfunny compared to the Guardian's OBO.
on the 23rd for 2 and a half weeks and so will see a lot of the super 8's games. is this a good thing? i don't really like cricket
that this is the reaction i was looking for ;)
...i'd have thought would've taken a Canadian wicket by now...
come on Kenya
clearly this is a game with anything happening in it, rather than Australia's batting practice.
Mental note to self. Australia vs Scotland in first game, probably pick an aussie batsman.
you pesky aussies. Ponting's not going to get a bat is he?
Ponting to smash em now
lemon. If the Scots can get rid of Punter quick sticks then it'll give the Hussmeister plenty of time to compile a huge score.
my first points. hopefully
all got him? that makes my joy a bit redundent.
i was just taking the piss out of my mate for gilly going. totally forgotten that he was my wicketkeeper. ah well, 47 must be worth something.
I stubbornly refused to pick any Aussie. So no.
well you are bound to do well then, snow brigade!
but never let it be said that i wasn't a bloody minded fool who stuck to his principles!
eek a mouse
it's hardly their fault that they were the best team in the world for a decade and knew it.
and they were very sporting after the 2005 ashes.
but then there's nothing particularly wrong with Arsenal other than they're from down the road and have been consistantly better than Spurs for a decade. I said I'm a man of principle, not a man of level-headed rationality.
I am much the same.
i found myself amused at Arsene Wenger this morning moaning about the French team ignoring him post World Cup and saying 'there we go, you know the French!'. I can imagine his little sideways mouth smirking and I laughed.
Cesc Fabregas is still a cunt.
Back to cricket.
Brian Lara 2007 COMING SOON?! SOON?! marketing men missing a trick there. Available from ASDA you say?...
I have Hayden, Ponting AND Gilchrist! Ia slo forgot that i'd picked Bravo. Bravo!
you must be king of the league by now!
I however had Chandderpaul and one of the Kenyan batsmen. Huzzah.
Manboob Hayden gone! 139-2
sit down, Scotland have bowled you out.
COME ON PONTING.
that'll be a bonus four points :)
if he keeps it there
I hate him. He's such a girl.
but likely to be next skipper
at the memory of watching him shit his pants whilst Chris Gayle was chasing him all over the pitch during the ICC trophy.
non bowling hand, but this could be a hammer blow to Robert Key Memorial XI
it means you won't be diving into negative points territory.
that might be a blessing for born to run out. i don;t know why i picked plunkett.
WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT, YOU STUPID CUNTING WEATHER SYSTEM?
and it's a big if,
it's a no-result. does that my i lose all my beautiful points?
but it would be quite lolsome for all those Ponting pickers.
they're back on. Howway the lads.
you tedious, snub-nosed, run-getting robot
he's my captain too
(for finishing mid table)
you had just scored a century
on the bbc website. Did he get the century? They are useless.
112. You beauty.
