    Normal service is resumed.

    Unless we do something really special with the ball this will all be over in 25-30 overs.

    Sure is movement in the pitch early. Wont be easy to start.

    Clearly going to lose but unbelievable fightback from England. Love this side.

    In a T20 warm up game today David Willey hit Nathan Lyon for 34 off one over.

    He was an impromptu opener.

    Would've been the first English batsman to get 36 off an over...

    Where has Stanlake come from!? Amazing stuff. Does he have test cricket in him or would 5 days be too much?

    He's a Queenslander, but has played the last few Big Bash seasons in Adelaide. Really like big Billy though. So much to like. Gets a lot of pace, tall lad so gets good lift. Still has a bit to learn though. I hope he can make his Shield breakthrough soon. At this stage I think he is a few years off the Test scene. Needs to build his stamina first.

    1 day international.

    SA 118 all out

    India - currently - 117-1

    Needing 2 to win.

    And they've come off for lunch.

    Absolutely brainless.

    Hales dropped the match...

    Still may not have won but would've been a lot closer without Maxwell. Looked such an easy catch too.

    Aussies are a right bunch of tossers aren't they. Six in a row - lucky bastards.

    I don't understand how domestically t20 seems the crowd puller where all the money is at. Yet in international series it's a sorry after thought. A couple of games to give players and grounds that don't usually get them a game. (Throw in another team to add interest :sleep:) the lack of comment on these matches shows the level of interest...

    (Irrespective of how poor we were, it's not really a fitting end to any series let alone an ashes one)

    To be honest over here the domestic Big Bash league is very very reasonable price wise to go and watch. The international matches are over double the price, and to be honest, there is no real interest in as you said, in a couple of afterthought games.
