I dropped in and out of the coverage over here in Australia and it seemed extremely boring - other than Pieterson the Poms are really boring - agree with earlier post Vaughan and Flintoff are a shadow of their former self. I am sure they will both be up again for the Aussie tour. Surely we cannot win it considering wehave list the true stars.
I put on Kevin Pieterson to be top run scorer first innings Eng (paying .50)into Jacques Kallis to be top run scorer SA first innings (). Stand to collect 0 if Pieterson goes on with it (and Bell doesn't pass him) and Jacques can get some runs. As and Aussie my sincere hatred for the saffas means I am going for the Poms.
Nice bet although your risk is Kallis. Are you the same Paul Gambale that played in Canberra and then for North Sydney. I think I got you out once!
lready 6 centuries in just 3 innings... will the bat dominate the ball all series? If so we could be looking at more draws. Flintoff is comming back, but I dont see that he will make that much difference. Would he have taken any wickets at Lords yesterday? Obviously a better option than Collingwood as the 4th/5th bowler; but no one was making headway yesterday.
Why is collingwood being picked as an all rounder his bowling is terrible !! Broad is amazing and they left him out he bats better than the top 6. Think england need a new keeper and new bowler i seen and heard a few young lads about one at Notts and one at Middlesex that should come in for the ashes !KP will do well as captian he has a big heart
Vaughan braking down in tears? what was the odds on that one astro boy never mind career in jeopardy ha ha ha !!
KP for the future of English cricket my own feeling is that they only employed him so he doesnt run of to the IPL Thoughts.............................. ?????
KP KP KP,its all good and well now.It will be interesting to see if his confidence stays up there when they lose matches under him,I think it can destroy a player like him.
What you guys think.
loved how nel was taunting pieterseen by shouting "COME ON EGO, HAVE A GO EGO" nel is brilliant
I was once watching somerset v Northampton when he was first over here and someone was at fine leg giving him all kinds of abuse when the over had finished he stepped over the advertising boards took the blokes pint from his hands and the 4/6 board and sat down in the blokes seat and told him to go and bowl at Mr Trescothick and the guy looked like a complete fool he was just stood there and Nel was saying whats wrong whats wrong exactly be quiet then !!!!!!!! A moment i will never forget !!!!!!!
