Have they ever played 20/20 before?

13-06-2005, 21:39:18
Still, good to give them a whipping. :beer:

We have had a few games between states (like count them on both hands), and I think maybe a few internationals (count them on one hand), but not a lot of matches.

Oh, and...


14-06-2005, 06:08:32
yeah, well the only people who go there seem to want to talk about football all the time and I wanted everyone to see this.

14-06-2005, 07:25:18
We haven't played much 20/20 either - at least our national team haven't. This was Vaughan's first ever game, and most of the rest of the team have played no more than about 10 games.

Australia have played one 20/20 international and some of their players (Symonds in particular) played quite a few County games. The 20/20 competition in England clashes with the one-day international round-robin nonsense, so most of the England one-day team had barely played it, and as fp points out, Vaughan had never played it (more significant than you think, given he was captain and the pressure on the captain in those games when you're in the field is immense).

14-06-2005, 08:59:26
We whipped them good.

14-06-2005, 08:59:55
Of course England's problem is that we'll get 179 in the 50 over matches and the tests too.

okay, thanks
it is all about the sissy sport.

14-06-2005, 09:02:53
Or alternatively -

England triumphed over Australia at the Rose Bowl, the beer was warm and flat, the pies were stodgy and cold.

14-06-2005, 09:03:16
slikten ze?

14-06-2005, 09:04:24
Not sure... but they definitely sucked.

14-06-2005, 09:05:56

18-06-2005, 20:04:55

Bangladesh beat Australia?

And we beat them again?

That's 4 wins in a row we've had now. :confused:

Are the Australians really that shit?

Who the fudge knows?

I ain't going to read too much into the one dayers, other than a possible morale boost, they shouldn't have too much effect on the tests. Worryingly though, McGrath, Gillespie and Kasper seem to be out of form. Seeing as we haven't played in like 2-3 months, that shouldn't be a surprise though.

*End Is Forever*
20-06-2005, 12:26:44
McGrath looked okay yesterday. The other two were dire. I agree that these performances should have only limited effect on the Test matches, but the Australian aura of invincibility has been punctured. There will not be the same psychological hold on England as there perhaps has been in recent years.

We'll see. One really bad innings from England could pile all that back on again.

Still, should at least be a challenge, and if our bowler's form doesn't improve, heck, even if it only improves marginally, we could lose the Ashes. Something that our press hadn't even considered up until we started playing so crap in the one dayers.

Still, There'll be Warney in the tests, he'll make a big difference. And Bing to play in the next one dayer.

21-06-2005, 03:13:21
They looked pretty good when they were here... there was no way an Ashes defeat was on the cards. Names like "Best Team Ever" were being used and such.

Guess that means New Zealand definitely doesn't want to play England or Bangladesh in the next year either. =)

21-06-2005, 07:02:15
Hi ned.

Who is Bing?

21-06-2005, 07:03:34
Translation into American plz. :P

21-06-2005, 10:19:18
The Old England Cubs beat the Austrialia Mets 4-0 for the first time in 85 years, after the Mets were also beaten in a shock upset by Japan.

I don't know. Who is Bing?

21-06-2005, 10:22:12

Nice translation.

I'll own goal the who is Bing thing, just cos it's pretty obvious he's an Aussie bowler yet to come back into the side. I will still explain where he got the nickname from tho.

From Bing Lee, an electrical goods chain in Australia. His brother is nicknamed Meadow, after Meadow Lea (sic), a margarine.

21-06-2005, 14:49:48
So who is he? Not an own goal I don't know anything about Cricket.

Greg W
21-06-2005, 14:52:11
You don't know who Brett Lee is? Hmm. He's arguably the fastest bowler in the world, with Shaoib Akhtar being the only one who could challenge him for the honour. He's been a bit on the outer recently though, with Kasprowicz taking his spot after he got injured, and doing so well they didn't want to drop him.

21-06-2005, 14:54:34
Oh. Brett Lee. Yes I've heard of him.

21-06-2005, 15:12:36
Akhtar is a) precious and B) a chucker so I recon Brett Lee can be the fastest boweler in the world all on his own.

Greg W
24-06-2005, 01:39:58
Well, normal service resumed. :beer:

24-06-2005, 03:15:41
Lee is also a chucker. :beer:

24-06-2005, 09:02:30
Why would anybody choose to bat second in a day-nighter?
