    The pinko liberal in me wants to applaud Cricket Australia for rehabilitating the recidivists.

    I call my inner pinko Jeremy, and he's locked in the basement until after The Ashes. And i've assassinated Boris and Nigel.

    Interesting to see Australia vs W Indies at Trent Bridge last week. The "Sandpaper boys" were booed both on and off the pitch. I wonder how many years this will go on for.

    I think if they play some good cricket and just get on with things then it will quieten down. If they don't then they are unlikely to be playing international cricket anymore anyway, and the problem goes away differently.

    If I was Blackadder I would probably suggest that some sort of roof was in order.

    Unfortunately Australia managed to win today due to some batting mistakes by Pakistan

    Also appalling fielding by Pakistan allowed Australia to get a decent total.

    it was appalling field from england that let pakistan beat them - win some/lose some...
     
  13. Alistair Cook and Graham Swan answering listeners emails on TMS this morning, "what did you used to think about whilst slip fielding Graham", "Cookies wife, Alice", he replied. Really enjoyable hour of radio.

    Cheers BB

    Good chance of some net run rate gains here. But two batsmen off the field.

    They are doomed. They need a pukka spinner. Their bowling is one dimensional. Engq beat them with nine players :eek:

    Reckon I must be the only person on the planet (who can lip read) but Gayle definitely called Root a Batty Boy during the end of match meet and greet.

    They aint all that nice sometimes ,the Windies.

    Glad they had it up em today
