108-1, after 26 overs, ok its early days and Poms are the masters of plucking defeat from the jaws of victory ...:) Been in Oz 20 years but still want the Poms to win (only in cricket) :devious

Sorry to North American and Euro Zoners, this thread might not make sense

Cricket explained: You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.


When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.


When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.

mate i've been here nearly thirty years and i'm about as aussie as you get now....
apart from the slight pommy accent when i've been on the cans....LOL

like ya say the poms are past masters at plucking defeat from the jaws of victory... so i'm not overly worried about the first morning but the state of the pitch after 20 odd overs is woeful.....:rant

oh and to all the american and euopean people...this is a religion to some of us....:hail strange as it may seem.... :laugh

Thats about the most entertainment I ever had when the game of cricket has been mentioned Martin .:)
Nothing like having a game that goes for 5 days and it be a no result :coocoo .Something that does make me laugh though is the trophy "The Ashes" ( A little old clay egg cup ) .

Cricket is as boring as bat shit.... BUT we can't lose to the Poms :banghead I was hoping for another 5-0 series win like last time round but that went out the window..

But it was interesting to find out that after the Brits beat us at Lords.... It was the first time in 75 years that the Aussies have lost at the "spiritual" home of cricket.... 75 YEARS!!!!!! Now thats a record :laugh
