2-2 in the one day series

Australian cricket has gone from Champs to Chumps

Fingers crossed for Sunday. Old Trafford suited our spinners last week (I attended and had a most enjoyable day). I hope for the same tomorrow.

We may not be able to beat them in the rugby, but we can still give it to them in the cricket. Well done Aussies!

A very interesting and controversial first day/night test. The Aussie come out the winner, but a very poor decision by the third umpire mired the game. The pink ball worked well, but a grassy pitch and long grass in the field, designed to protect the ball, made runs had to get and wickets fell easily. The match was over in 3 days, but the crowd in those three days was bigger than the last 5 day test in Adelaide.

I think the day/night test format is a go'er, but they have to work out the pitch and field. No point in having a five day game if it ends in 3 days every time. Mind you, during the last Ashes series not a single game went into the fifth day.

Great batting by the Aussie duo, breaking all sorts of records, but against a very lacklustre West Indies. Oh how the world has changed, it is a bit of a shame. They used to be the most entertaining and exciting team in the world.
