Not Freddie van Halen's Thread about cricket and other GOAT commonwealth sports. Congratulations England on winning the world cup. Next up: the Ashes.

Lara got scores at the expense of a result which I never liked but it was amazing to watch all the same

Well  from an Aussie point of view its been an absolute pleasure to watch, some fantastic performances from both bat and ball. Selectors made the right decisions, and really proud of how the boys stayed positive and just took opportunities when they came.

 

England have been outplayed but i think positives to look at are Malan, Overton, Woakes, Bairstow and Vince. Some of the senior players need to take a good look in the mirror though.

 

Bubba, commiserations, as per our agreement your av

Thanks TC, and congratulations.

 

Yeah, the team went into the ashes with question marks over all the new players and it turns out it was the senior players who have been pretty garbage.

 

I have a bit of an overlap with my current AV bet, so I'll put the AV up when it expires (it expires early January).  Sig in place now.  I'll keep that until the AV expires to make up for my slack-ness.

You're a gentleman Sir and a man of your word.

Our boy Alistair showing that form is temporary, class is permanent. After another failure to convert from root I feared waking up to Australia batting with a 200+ run lead. Fantastic innings by cook; he's pretty much the only player in world cricket capable of such a lengthy innings these days. Great support from broad....too little too late some would say but at least we're fighting for some pride (not to mention my username!). This one is ours to lose now.

Jimmy Tamperson doing a good job too

Lol. The level of rustle in your media over one good day for England almost makes up for the fact we're getting hammered this tour.

 

I've never seen straws clutched at so badly. Cleaning dirt off a ball with the back of your thumb in front of the umpires is definitely not tampering.

 

Did you enjoy Broad's knock? This is your home ground isn't it mate? Get yourself down there and fulfil your lifelong cricket ambition!

Lol. I can't disclose any sources mate

it's very specifically an Adelaide thing. I don't think even Victorians really realise how far it goes, you actually know someone from my state? it's an honour that you went to that effort :)

 

also it's gonna be epic for FH to return from permaland in tew tests time :D

Yeah,some random Aussie chick gone walkabout.

 

Um...I think you might need to Google "whitewash".

It can no longer happen mate, so our double or nothing deal is already in effect.

I will not take banter from someone who has confessed to not even watching this chit.

 

Personally I'd be embarassed if my team were playing for a draw when they're already 3-0 up - and the alleged best batsman in the world ends up with a strike rate barely half as quick as Alistair Cooke!

 

The Don is probably spinning in his grave at any comparisons.

lol troof.

 

 

also, I met the Don when I was a kid. he lived near me and there was a rumour that if you go and ring the door bell his wife will let you come and meet him and sign something. so off little Oz goes with his pride and joy double scoop grey Nicholls and a wingman and rings the door bell. sure enough a lady comes out and sees me and invites me in, makes me and my mate a Milo and in comes old Don. gives the bat a stern once over with a smile and signs the top of it, and tells me to squeeze oranges to make my hands strong. I never knew if he was trolling. still got that bat in storage, it's dirty and the signature is faded but it's legit. worth a penny now too I think. what a GOAT he was

That's pretty awesome mate.  Not only the greatest batsman of all time, but arguably the most dominant sportsman in any sport.  So cool that you met the fella.  The biggest legend I've ever met irl is Keith Chegwin :(

and the judges have scored it 49-38 to Australia.  If prime Yamasaki was ref it would've been stopped in the first.  If Prime Big John was ref he would've waived it off after the third

Start reading up on Duckworth-Lewis, m8.  It's basically a formula used to determine what score the chasing team have to get in weather affected games

LoL Im not going to properly explain this but basically when play was stopped, they looked at Pakistans score, then looked at NZs score and with 26 overs left and 8 wickets NZ would have double dipped those blueberries in buttermilk

to hell with that.  team green was going to bowl the last 8 runners out in just 9 pitches.

 

f*cking montreal screwjob right there m8.  if those sheep shaggers from new zealand are too scared to play in a little bit of rain, they should just forfeit and then take their ball and go home.
