Not going too badly at the moment and the Aussies have loads of people that I've never heard of. Bollinger?
I like to think of myself as a cricket bore but I don't think I've ever cared less about a match involving England.
aggressive but rigid batting, mediocre bowling attack. england stand a very good chance here...
and South Africa v France and Mexico v Uruguay. Its hard work.
Their bowling attack looked pretty toothless then, plus they had two comedy run-outs when in bat.
i enjoyed it. good days play really. surprised how competitive middlesex were.
also enjoyed the fact that they showed the rugby in the bars : )
Yes, we were.
It was a good match. I could have done with a few more boundaries, and I counted only a dozen or so decent bowls all day, but it was good that the Aussies had to knuckle down and fight a little.
My favourite moment, however was when Ricky Pointing was warming up in the nets and got bowled. The hacked off face he made when everyone cheered was very funny.
he's looking very impressive again. Better get his hundred.
if he doesn't want to break a nation's hearts.
great yorker though
