Australia are getting their bottoms spanked,
well and truly 1 wicket for 379!

This is going to be so interesting, to see how we
handle it as a country.
Already brekky TV are ponting fingers madly. Hehehe

Well done England so far , great batting gentlemen.

...and that is without what I consider a given for
the English attack Chris Tremlett.
How could he be left out ?
This is going to be a great summer.

Rod the other team, is the Aussies!
Siddle, on his birthday picks up a 6 wicket haul with a hat trick.
Hussy's 195 with the bat. Haddin's 136 with the bat.
After bowling Eng out for 260 runs.
To tell you the truth Rod we have to let the Poms feel like they can win or they will not come back to play again.It is so sad to watch the Poms bottom lips dragging on the ground. Hehehehe! Cricket against our mighty foe. We just love to beat each other at this mighty game called cricket. May the best team win. 4 games to go!

Indeed, he took with him a longstanding
record at that ground, held by Sir Donald Bradman.
Mr. Cook is a great ambassador for cricket to boot.

A classic Draw! No winner, no looser. The Ashes are still evenly poised.

If the Adelaide wicket is true to form we are going to see a lot of big scores.
Can not wait. Will we see a double ton. How many tons will there be. Will the unusual happen and a bowler rip through a batting line up on this traditionally, batter friendly wicket.

As that song goes- We do not like cricket! Yeah! We love it!.....

I tried to run this thread through Google Translate, but it still comes out as gibberish. What language should I be selecting from the dropdown bar as the "input" language?

Collin, I think I have uncovered
a raging cricket fan worse than me, in John

Cricket is more of an inherited feeling
with fans in Australia, something about beating
the pants off the mother country.
We have had this rivalry since the early days of the colony.

The English export their fans when they come to Australia
in the aptly named "Barmy Army"
I watch cricket on TV, have the sound turned off, and listen
to the game on BBC radio, that way we can hear
the larrikins of cricket and the displeasure
of the english commentators when they are getting beaten,
(which is usual in Australia)

Yesterday, the BBC took the microphone down and recorded
the Barmy Army in full voice, as their boys
sang and exulted in their batsmen.

Only the English can celebrate so loudly in getting a draw!!

Sorry, cjd, cricket is almost a religion among us cricket lovers - here is a well known description of the game that is actually completely accurate (but may perhaps not make full sense to you!):

"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 both sides have been in and out including the not-outs, that's the end of the game."

These days cricket has many followers in the USA, but nearly all are immigrants from cricket playing countries. But it's worth remembering that the very first international cricket tour was by an England team to the USA in 1859 - cricket was particularly strong in Pennsylvania.

And it's no harder for you lot to understand cricket than for us to follow a heated discussion among Americans about American football or baseball.

Nothing better [stamps excepted]
than having a meat pie and a beer with your convict mates,
while watching the cricket down under
in the colonies with the Barmy Army
in full voice in the background.
That is the Ashes- Aust v England!

Obviously, a wrist spinning, right handed bowler,
taking advantage of the breeze, left to right,
delivering a "leggie", with the Captain asleep
somewhere, ....
Fielders at mid off, cover, point, and next to the bowler??
