I think the problem with cricket is that, as far as I'm aware, it's only played at Public Schools now so the majority of kids are not exposed to it, even television coverage is on Sky rather than BBC,

YES !  England win the World Cup in dramatic fashion. I swear my ticker stopped at least five times. Ben Stokes, superb ! An extra G & T. Tonight.  

Wot !  No blokes  ?

That do ya Oz.......lol 

Ben, I was lucky enough to see Derek Randall's innings in the Centenerary test the first year we came to Oz

My first pick in the team would be Larwood to give 'em a bit of chin music. Then Boycott to make them earn their wickets not give them away

 

Just seen the England "batting coach" interviewed on TV, he still thinks England can win! After that performance I wonder why he still has a job.

Phew, I've just calmed down now. Sometimes when you're rock bottom, there's no alternative but to go down fighting, and maybe, just maybe you'll come out on top.  englandflag

The mainstream media in OZ are bleating like lost lambs about the result, saying that Stokes was obviously out LBW, and how could the umpire not raise his finger. Yes, with the benefit of technology he was out but the umpire gave his decision quickly and I guess he might have heard something that he thought was bat on ball. If the Aussies had not wasted a review on something that was equally obviously not out the result would have been different, but it wasn't. They now want the DRS (Decision Review System) changed because they say that the "upstairs" umpire should have intervened and given Stokes out, sorry, no the rules are the rules.

They even bleated that the way England won the World Cup final was not fair but again both teams went into the match knowing what the rules were.

The only one I feel slightly sorry for is Nathan Lyon with that missed run out that he will be forced to relive over and over again.

One final point, if I had heard Tim Paine on the stumps microphone say "bowled Gazza" one more time I would have sunk the wellie into the TV speakers.

On to the next test at Old Trafford where no doubt it will rain.

Oz, not many over here will be feeling sorry for Nathan Lyon.  By coincidence I read the below article immediately after reading your post.  Not sure if it will open, never tried this before, but you’ll find it on google anyway.

edit, I see it won’t work, someone needs to give me tuition!

So sad that Notts CCC have been relegated, but I see no reason why they shouldn't bounce back immediately. 

It's been a wretched season, what with injuries, loss of form by key players, disruptions by the weather, and of course Stuart Broad, our world class bowler being on England duty all summer. 

Lets hope for better things next season.

Ah bless, did you think it was it done by vote? It's TV den, nothing is left to chance it's all carefully planned and staged...;)

It was nice to see KJT nominated, though I really didnt expect her to win.  She scrubs up well though.. for a scouser... ;)
