  1. The Japanese cricket tweet was the tournament highlight for us
  2. We are truly appalling at the moment, glad I haven't had time to watch it! The way the the coaching, captaincy and team have been handled at board level is ridiculous
  3. Last had a cigar in october, the situation will thankfully be rectified Tomorrow. I will be smoking my new order during the Football tomorrow
  4. Im currently at 0 til my next order arrives , time to build the stock up my humidor has been empty far too long.
  5. RIP Phil Hughes Always seemed an absolute gent
  6. Congratulations to you Aussies, mercifully I haven't had chance to watch more than a few hours, I was hoping we would make it to the Boxing Day test with the series still alive as I can go nocturnal for that one! Clarke and Lehman deserve some serious credit for this total Reversal, didn't see this coming even though I felt the Aussies had a good chance in this series
  7. Interesting stuff on the bodyline series Ken, Simon Hughes covered it in his book ''and god created cricket'' he also goes into the gentleman/professional situation and how backwards English cricket was/is, very interesting book if you can get your hands on it!
  8. It will definitely give you guys some impetus and make it more interesting, and make our batsmen pull there heads from their arses. Only made it 5 overs into out innings thankfully the weekend is here so I can catch plenty more
  9. Well, that's quite a shock to wake up to! Our batsmen letting our bowlers down, again. Was it good bowling or lack of application? Looks like our usual 1st test capitulation has struck again. I dreamt we would be all out for 234.....if only
  10. Looks like you have us just where you want us lads, we have a good batting line up but we don't make enough runs on a consistent basis for my liking!
  11. Thats the 1st thing i thought of when i saw the thread title, inspired
  12. If you dont mind me asking Blakes where did you get your wineador? PM me if you prefer
  13. Ive only ever tried a quick 5-6 hour version of this before, but im going the full 48 this time, got a beautiful fresh cut Rib Eye from a local farm shop, started a few hours ago all ready for thursday, ill update tomorrow.
  14. Either way its a damn shame, I have been a fan of DRS, but this series has shown its limitations, if the system or the 3rd umpire can't be relied upon to overturn a howler they may aswell scrap it! I'm certainly not convinced by hotspot, and it seems to me the on field umpires are scared to trust their own instincts now
  15. Good point Ken, just looking at it from a slightly different angle. There was someone commenting on the radio today cant remember who it is, but they looked at it as the umpires closing ranks, with the extreme scrutiny they are under nowadays they felt the 3rd umpires are trying to save face fore the on field guys, ridiculous decision i know but may go someway to explain the crap 3rd umpiring so far
  16. Your more than welcome in Sunny Yorkshire Smithy, if you bring some of the PSP stock
  17. On behalf of the cricketing public and the Aussie bowlers, welcome the Australian batsmen to the test series, seriously though ive seen or heard very little coverage, sounds like its an absolute road of a track? Draw likely with some rain forecast Sunday and Monday?
  18. All the best Smithy, the new girl has some big shoes to fill trying to keep Rob and Ken in check
  19. Looks like pattinson is out for the series with a stress fracture, I'm guessing that means Starc to replace him, who will replace Harris if he doesn't remain fit? Johnson? Maybe a chance of another spinner at old Trafford if the weather remains dry
  20. Bad time to be broke grrrr, thanks for the European slot though guys, as soon as i get ym grubby mitts on this ill be all over this like a bad rash
