Re: Cricket fred

To win 2 of the last 3 after earlier disappointments ( Smith & weather ) was a good return.Series draw probably fair but Paine let his heart rule his head by letting Eng bat first at this ground. Root is nudging on as new skip though not entirely convincing. Stokes, Archer, Burns, Curran, Denley...

Re: Cricket fred

It will be an entertaining day - Aus going at a lick.
Smith could do anything - hopefully he'll run out of partners.

Warner into nose-bleed territory now - (nearing double figures). Harris already skittled by Broad.

Re: Cricket fred

Not quite to plan - Aus take last 5 for just 50 but a big total to chase though.With the S-factor anything's possible.
Now Leach can consolidate his National Hero status with a match-winning bowling effort..

Re: Cricket fred

..all the way back to the Pavilion :x
ffs.
u/d: survived the day - 20-30 runs by the tail in the morning would be nice.Losing those late 3 wickets took the shine off a bit, but still in a reasonable position.

Re: Cricket fred

Denley deserved his first ton - no panic needed, lead of 400+ will be something to work with.

Effectively 127-1 with 2 reasonable days forecast.
Pitch looks placid so Eng should not stuff up from here.

Re: Cricket fred

Deja-vu ..the idea is to increase intensity & accuracy / put the foot on the throat blah blah...when blood is sniffed, else the beast bites back. :|

u/d: 6-fer for the triumphal Arch..attaboy.An innings lead for Eng ?..sacre-bleu you'd think the Ashes were already won..

He doesn't need to - just pitch it anywhere near the guy holding a bat at the other end, let nature take it's course.
Anything under 300 on this track will be a poor show.

Re: Cricket fred

Eng need to capitalise on the resolve and good fortune shown. Anything less than a 2-2 must be taken as a fail for E Smith / Root.
The Oval tends to be pretty dead at Summer's end but who knows..

Re: World Cup Breakfast Club

Feel that options for fried bead and toast need to be there instead of generic bread, and same for hash-browns v. spuds.Beans, especially heated in bacon juices are a worthy addition in moderate portioning, and go well with sausages, bacon and bread/toast, less well with eggs or tomatos.Eggs, if not...

A series draw is something to aim for now - maybe a few brave selections worth considering.

Almost a semi-miracle getting to Tea losing just 4 wickets in 60 overs after losing 2 in the first over, at least we've not completely folded today.
