anyone watching? we're doing alright actually
or does it just go on and on and on and on?
I will of course get ignored for saying this
In fact had forgotten it started today. Nice work.
via the interweb.
After a shaky start, it is looking good.
and flintoff surrently in. and twatting the ball all over
Last time I checked it was 50-2, but now Pieterson and Flintoff are in - could all be over in 15 overs, or.... actually, probably it will be over in 15 overs. Those two will get out triggering collapse, or they'll get to 204 easily.
if you can. Flintoff has just creamed two 6's and a 4 off Sreesanth.
on saturday, with his wife. he had a tattoo done. that's my contribution to the cricket thread, enjoy.
Was it "Corey"?
(Pieterson gone for 46, slogged a full toss to deep mid wicket)
but that'd be my guess too.
for 6 now. its all over
not world class but effective. just like crouch
getting beaten for a header by micheal owen againt argentina
Understatement of the year, that.
Useless against a well drilled top quality defence, goes to ground like an octogenarian on roller skates; despite the fact it would take a direct nuclear strike to knock him over.
Get up, Emile. You weigh fifteen stone!
used to draw all the defenders
they're able to sketch him
a smashing bloke?
He is a bit of a liability. My personal feeling is that he's one of the "Ashes 12" so there is this kind of thing around him that he's too good to drop.
Personally I'd like to see Read in for him, Cook or Shah in for Bell and Panesar in for Giles.
Except there's no way they'd both Giles and Jones since that'd be a big whole to fill at 7 and 8
on about 6 now. we def gonna win.....
we ain't. 141-8.
After the "what the hell is Geriant Jones in the team for" debate may I start the "what the hell is Ian Blackwell in the team for?" debate.
His off-spin is alright at best (yes I know he was economical today) and everyone says "Oh, he can hit them out of the stadium" except Blackwell only seems score about 5 before getting out quite stupidly.
but, do you have any alternatives? We haven't got any spinners that are going to take 5 wickets, so we need someone just to be economical, fill in their 10 overs, and hopefully get a few runs.
shit, but Udal's even worse so I hope they don't pick him instead. They probably will though, just cos he got a few wickets on a fifth-day pitch against a suicidal Indian lower order in the last test.
I think Jones is the right choice for tests but Prior should get a chance to take over in one-days.
...will do a job given time, bless him. Bar Udal's fortunate meeting with an Indian collapse, he's the only spinner along with Gilo worth bothering with.
Get well soon Simon.
It makes no sense that Prior plays and doesn't keep wicket. Either a better batsman than Prior plays or he plays and keeps wicket - obvious.
Jones isn't really doing enough with the bat at the moment to justify his place. I hope Read, Prior and Foster have good starts to the County season and put some pressure on him.
should be the keeper.
a bit early for him, I think.
They're all out
