Townie
What about you and me flying out to prop the team up. Seems like they all play
on crutches. I used to play a lot of cricket and football. Useless at both but I used
to get picked every week. Really enjoyed sport and played football until I was 38.
When I stopped the sports my health just fell apart. But lucky I am still alive.
Take care
Gerald.

Gerald your on. I played Football and Cricket all my life until it was time to hang up my boots  Grin I almost signed for Birmingham City, played for Tamworth but the night life came first. Had our own Cricket team in Tamworth also played for British Leyland. There cars may have been crap but the cricket was good.

Haven't posted on this topic for awhile. ashamed would probably be the honest reason. The ashes well we said a goodbye to them. The money these cricketers get now you would think they would try. If I was in charge I would drop the lot and start again. Anyway congratulations Australia you won without even trying

Hello Ed and Townie
I feel sure we must have better players than those in Australia. I played lots of cricket and
really enjoyed it. Always wanted to win but now they spend more time talking.
The cricket bat used to be used for punishment, perhaps this lot should have a dose of it.
Middle and off.

Wouldn't it be nic to have someone like the Aussie Smith who attacks the ball.Now that's what crickets all about,instead of straight bat all the time.

4 0 a white wash and all the money it cost to send them players out there and return with heads lowered. You have players moaning its to cold and now there moaning its to hot. I didn't hear the Ausies moaning its to hot, perhaps that was a feeble excuse for a shambles of a cricket team.
